Dear Traveler, We were sorry to hear that you we not satisfied with your recent stay. We are in the process of assessing upgrades needing attention and have been doing interior work since our off season began and exterior will begin when the weather warms up. We realize that one of our biggest downfalls is the on site limited parking and are in the process of finding ways to make this more efficient . We do sincerely hope that you will consider giving us another chance in the future. Best, Kathy Hitchings Operations Manager

We have spent many nights at the Essex Street Inn. It's location is key - you can park your car and walk to everything you need. Local shops, dining and more. It is a great place to land to explore Newburyport.

We are owned and operated by a private hospitality group who closely oversees our day to day operations and is very attentive to our maintenance needs and needs of our guests. We do understand that parking that parking on site can sometimes be difficult at times. Prior to this review,we have been proactively working on plans to make parking for our guests more convenient.

We appreciate all recommendations from our guests.
