This is now my 2nd stay. The hotel has a very special ambience. A nice mix of old history combined with modern design. The room was big and clean. The hotel I guess is lead by the family which gives it a personal touch. The breakfast was good. Only small negative thing I can say, the shower has to be...

Form the moment we arrived I knew it was going to be an amazing stay. Having never been here before, nor in Newburyport, we weren't sure what t expect. We loved the location, the décor, the friendliness of the staff, the attention to detail. The room was clean and furnishings were understatedly elegant - loved the exposed brick and vintage...

My daughter and I stayed at the Garrison Inn as part of her graduation trip, and it was absolutely wonderful! The hotel was perfectly located, and we walked all over the town: antique shops downtown, historical churches, boat rides on the Merrimac, coffee shops and great restaurants. You can just *feel* the history of the hotel, and we had a...

On our trips to Newburyport we always now stay at The Garrison Inn, as we consider it our home away from home. First off it's in a great central location, which we like, as we can walk to all the main shops and restaurants nearby. The staff, simply put, is wonderful, and they all define the word hospitable, as they...

I stayed at Garrison Inn around thanksgiving 2016. Good points include 1)the location, downtown near all the shops and restaurants, 2)there's an elevator, so you don't have to drag bags upstairs like at some B&B's, 3)the room had some character, but was also clean with some updated/modern features like modern tv and bed and wifi, although I wouldn't say the...

I loved absolutely everything about this hotel. It is old and charming yet fully updated and elegant. We had a corner king suite and it was huge and full of light, on the third floor with a view of a classic New England church across the street. Loved the interior shutters on the windows, and actual antique furniture in the...
