Kara & Dave run an amazing place close (walking distance) to the beach & the boardwalk I have been staying here for a number of years and I am never disappointed It is kept very clean & updated

There is air conditioning in the rooms & a pool on site A HUGE plus to me about this place is that you don’t get the partying…this is more of a family place and I really appreciate that about the way they run thingsAlso buddy the property pup is SUPER adorable You honestly cannot find better people than these two & they employ an amazing staff as well You will not be disappointed!

The rooms were very clean and had quite comfortable beds The bathroom (and hot water) were all great The hotel is very quiet

The service (all points) was very good as well Breakfast was very well done and the entire eating area was spotless and the staff kept it clean throughoutA great stop No complaints

Riley Maeve

Quite honestly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at There was no hot water for my shower, my room was not properly cleaned before checking in (food in the sink, no toilet paper, ect), and nothing available to eat for those with dietary restrictions I wasn’t even able to get a coffee as they ran out at breakfast and never refilled

Luckily the beds were comfy, and served their purpose Overall, I wouldn’t recommend to a friend

Needs updates for the price CLEAN! 4 stars, Cable 2 stars, WiFi 2 stars Upon checking in to a disorganized mess, no waiting area at all, barking dog, being hushed because the lady was on the phone, being asked to wait outside and then being yelled at that it was OK to come in then was asked name and reservation information, to be asked to move again to get the keys

By this time we almost lost it and probably would have never left a review at all But finally get to our room and later seeing office ladies drinking coronas and complaining about everything and everyone at a picnic table and was thinking they get paid for this most pain full check in and us customers and others are to blame ? Just stayed away from the office and leave the key in your room when you leave

This spot was an absolutely lovely place to kick off our vacation in Massachusetts Our host Caitlin was so sweet and welcoming, the room was clean and comfy, and oh, the breakfast was delightful Fresh fruit, good coffee, breads and pastries, all hosted in a gorgeous garden room

It was centrally located as well, and we were able to walk pretty much everywhere during our time We had a wonderful stay!

Faith Bullock

The rooms were clean and tidy! The host Kaitlyn was perfect, she was present, attentive, helpful, social and kind The perfect person to run this type of establishment! The breakfast was fresh, homemade, healthy, lots of fresh fruit and home baked items It was a perfect location for walking to town, to restaurants, shopping, etc

we will definitely come back! Thank you Kaitlin for a nice little getaway!

Robert Caruso

The staff and location were top notch Though the building and facilities were well kept and beautiful, the age of the building and maintenance being done made it quite noisy and challenging to rest in The bed was extremely comfy and the decor quaint and nice, though the bathroom was the too small to properly shower and get ready in

The breakfast was amazing!Great value and the staff made up for the things we didn’t like

We enjoyed the framed historic documents and photos thatdecorated the walls, the huge original windows, and the updated glass and tile shower A delicious made to order breakfast was the perfect end to our stay We will definitely be back!

Jimmy Brazelton

I have stayed in a lot of hotels, but this has hands-down been the best experience I have ever had The rooms were nice, clean, and very charming The wifi was fast and the temperature was great, as was the water pressure

They checked all the boxesBut what really made them stand out was their service Everyone there was incredibly kind, welcoming, and incredibly helpful The breakfast was incredible! It’s all cooked to order – just about anything you could want for breakfast, they’ll cook it for you We were there for a work meeting, and they let us meet in their tea room for extended periods – and they kept bringing us hot water for tea!We all absolutely adored this place and agreed that it would be our official New England meeting point for future meetings

Nicole Schneider

We booked the Garrison Inn as a weekend getaway for my 30th birthday!! This was one of the few places that allowed pets (our 65lb coonhound got to experience Newburyport!) It was close to downtown and all of the restaurants and rail trail/water walkway Check in was 4pm

We were there around 350pm had no problem checking in Two people at the front desk were very nice Quick check in and gave us keys and three papers One was put on our dash of our car and we were able to park right out front Other one was TV channels and third showed info about ice makers, checkout times, WiFi info Everything you needed to know We checked into room 306 with the king bed facing the park It had the soft music playing and rose pedals and a rose on the bed I was absolutely blown away There was a large king bed which was comfortable, tv, lounge chair, fireplace, desk and chair and bathroom Windows had wood shutters that opened Blocked all the light at night Very quiet area Bathroom had plenty of towels and large shower There was robes in the closet, a fridge, and even umbrella we utilized while walking our dog in the rain!! There was extra pillows and blankets in the closet so you didn’t have to bug anyone for additional blankets which we usually do Dimming lights on back wall and lots of tv channels to choose from There was bottled water for additional pricing ($5) or 24/7 room service for drinks/alcohol which we didn’t need to utilize There was a lot of great history to read on the walls about the inn Complimentary tea time was 7-10pm We were able to make our own tea and there were scones and cookies This was awesome Next morning there was complimentary breakfast that you ordered at the window Options from omelets, sandwiches to bagels Grapefruit juice and water as well as coffee and tea Just one man doing it all he was doing his best Checkout was 11am and so easy They even gave the dog a treat on her way out Just blown away as to how clean and beautiful this place was Can’t wait to come back again!

Room was clean Check-in and Check-out staff need MUCH better training Several of us stayed there for a wedding

Tried to add our stay to our Hilton Honors account and was told we couldn’t since we didn’t make the reservation Doesn’t matter we had the room in our name or we paid the bill, it’s based on who makes the reservation Dumb Checking my bill today, day after our stay and I got someone else’s bill Same price just a different name on the bill Wedding was great, this place needs better training Guess we should be happy they had people working

Bailey Blake

Booked this hotel because it was the closest one to our vacation plans Advertises a hot tub and pool, the hot tub is covered in plywood and has a table set on it We stayed for 3 nights and every morning we needed new room keys as the cards would stop unlocking the doors

We then discovered chunks of what appeared to be mold coming out of the ice machines The rooms were very clean and the staff were very friendly

Our family will he back again for many years to come!

Can’t beat the location, the staff is so friendlyClean rooms and breakfast delivered to your door in the morning is quite specialAlso on our trip there was a storm out at sea, which made the waves huge And they were right outside our door

Very romantic and highly recommended

Leah Janey

The rooms were poorly up kept It was false advertising The rooms did not nearly meet what they advertise on their website

The exorbitant amount that they charge could not be justified with the lack of care in the room The floors were scruffy the walls were dirty the furniture was outdated I asked for someone to follow up with me And no one did

Barbara Zdravesky

It had been a while since I last stayed at this hotel, and was discouraged to see how run-down the property had become, but it was nevertheless convenient and pleasant The staff are very polite, the accommodations are nice, and the room was comfortable There were a few small quirks though – there were what looked like a few cigarette ashes in the toilet, the drapes were torn and didn’t close all the way, one of the cups was unwrapped and in the trash basket, the trash bag itself had big holes in it, there was hair on the bathroom floor, and the TV remote was inside the bedsheets

It all gave me the impression that whoever was cleaning the room was either in a hurry, or got distracted in the process I’d stay again, but it probably won’t be my first choice, until there is new carpet and a general freshening up of this hotel

Ishka Bibble

Visiting here from CA to attend my niece’s wedding We’ve stayed at other Fairfield properties in CA, this is typical, nothing fancy or otherwise outstanding They have complimentary breakfast and I do have to say it was not something I would recommend, although their make your own waffles were good

Besides the fresh assortment of fruit, apples and bananas, hot dishes included what could only be really generously described as scrambled eggs and breakfast pork sausage – more like yellow warm mush with warm disks of chewy cardboard, it was that good They also had another chaffing dish with packages of something warm- not very appealingRooms were nice and clean, AC worked well (really need it in summer) and toiletries were 👍 Good place to stay, eat breakfast somewhere else

Rich Messina

I’m a long-time Hilton Honors member & stay at Hampton Inn’s pretty regularly This Fairfield Inn is better: staff, breakfast, room, bed, iced lemon water in lobby, etc

all for $55 CHEAPER/ night than Hampton!! They even adjusted my room rate a day after check-in, as I forgot to mention my AAA membership when booking Marianne took care of everything & Michael the GM was friendly & eager tohelp All-around superior valuegreat job!

The lodging is quaint and charming Hotel staff very helpful and nice

with one exception The host at the outside dining area was a total jerk Our stay was for two days and on both days interacting with this gentleman, his attitude was less than welcoming Don’t recall his name, but had very short hair and glasses Although there were several empty tables, he wouldn’t let us sit to watch the entertainment unless we bought food There were 4 of us & we were all drinking but he refused to let us under the tent or at picnic tables 8 at night, no one waiting to get in, but we weren’t welcome We had eaten there for 2 days, but it didn’t count We left & took our money elsewhere I understand if it was the height of the season & crowded, but it wasn’t He needs to be a bit flexible

Sonja Stefan

Wonderful experience!!! My husband and I have already decided we are coming back every year We have always stayed in motels close to the strip but this was a much better experience We could rest in our quiet comfortable room (slept great at night) away from all the noise and commotion

Very happy with our choice this time We are FANS and the Tavern food was AMAZING!!!

Our stay at Around the Corner Bed & Breakfast was fantastic! The house is so lovely, rooms were extremely well-kept and comfortable, and Rita is amazing! She made our vacation extra special and made us feel so taken care of! We really appreciated her attention to detail, hospitality, kindness, and personal touches (such as books and decorations on every floor)! The breakfast was delicious and a great experience to meet other guests! A true gem in Exeter!

Christina Baker

This stay was so close to being wonderful before quickly going downhill Upon departure, I was notified that a towel was missing from the room and that I would be charged $50 for the missing item per their policy I immediately replied explaining that my friend and I were there for a short stay and did not use the showers or towels (outside of the makeup towels)

Regardless of my argument, the manager would not refund me the $50 because she “personally” knew there was 3 towels in room I explained I will dispute the charge with my credit card company in which she laughed at me I did not want to go down this road I sincerely appreciate that this is a small inn and thief can cause major pains for them, but it is also not fair to charge me for a crime I did not commit I can’t explain why a towel I had not seen or touches was missing

Cyndi Dusek

We stayed here last week for two nights and it was incredible! It was a great location, a half mile walk across the bridge to downtown Newburyport, and a ten minute drive to the Salisbury state beach The room was clean and bright and comfortable and so convenient with kids – the parking space was right next to the room door It was a super easy check-in and check-out and the email directions/communication was clear and easy to follow

Even though I never talked with anyone in-person, they were very responsive and friendly and funny over the phone The shower was perfect and the rooms had a mini fridge and great coffee There are two restaurants in the same parking area to choose from Our second night we didn’t want to walk back into town and this made things super convenient We will definitely be back!

Monica Toner

We arrived late because we had driven from Maine after our wedding on July 4th We stopped in the restaurant to ask about late check in and the woman at the bar was incredibly rude to us Actually everyone in Salisbury we encountered that night had an entitled don’t bother me attitude

The pictures of the rooms are completely misleading and I didn’t think the size or placing of our room was worth the cost No view and wasn’t anything special The bed was on cheap risers and the mattress sunk in the middle I’m sure the dock view of the boats is great at the restaurant but I wouldn’t stay there again for anything else

Smallest bathroom ever Location was great, good restaurants Towels and wash clothes were stained and low grade, not the quality that I am use to

Nice pool Stayed in a very small one bedroom with deck, ocean view deck was nice Suggestion, key deck door lock to be same as room door or you will have to call down to desk to come up and let you in Stairs are very steep and your foot does not fit on stairs so be very careful on those This hotel needs updating Lots of stained ceiling tiles in this room Great weather and great beach

kathy shakley

Owner was helpful in helping us get our belongings into our rooms ( we booked a suite and a single room) I was not impressed with the cleanliness of either Suite 28 was run down and filthy Fan had thick grime, baseboards rusty and dirty

exhaust fan covered in grime carpeting old and musty The fan over the stove and stove itself was very dirty with rust and dried grease One window has a crack in the glass The railing going out off the porch was so loose that it was an accident waiting to happen It was sad it was so unkept ( it was in the older part of the hotel) Loved the rooftop deck it was beautiful! Pool was ok but had green algae on the steps Outdoor shower didn’t work We made the best out of it but I’m still at disbelief on why the owners would be OK with such filth I hope they reevaluate on improving the condition of the older rooms I just can’t understand them not taking better care of their property

The Innkeepers, Gloria and Ken are very welcoming, thoughtful and have all the best local knowledge I was in town for a business function and sadly only one night, but will definitely be back with the family for a weekend! Gloria was kind enough to beautifully gift wrap a present for my boss that I otherwise would have delivered in a brown paper bag That level of kindness and service you certainly don’t find everyday

Wow!! We came for a family overnighter and quickly decided we wanted to comeback for a longer stay The inn is on a side street off of the main road which makes walking to the main road (with tons of restaurants and coffee shops etc) easy and delightful The innkeepers were warm, accommodating, and accessible

The breakfast in the morning was delicious and I love that they had freshly brewed coffee as well as keurig coffee The house itself is just beautiful and the rooms feel so luxurious I just finished the show “Bridgerton” and I felt like I was staying in a room at one of the nobility’s great houses The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was large Definitely book here if you are coming to Newburyport

The Compass Rose Inn was a great choice for spending a night in Newburyport after attending a wedding A little pricier than I normally go for, but the location and style were top notch It was right down the street from shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and the waterfront

We loved being able to walk to dinner and not have to deal with driving and parkingThe Inn itself is very clean and beautiful We stayed in a suite, which had a small sitting room, beautiful French doors to the bedroom, a nice bathroom with a deep soaking tub, and air-conditioning controlled in-room Everything you’d need for a comfortable stayBreakfast was family-style and delicious In addition to a small selection of muffins/bagels/tea breads, they offered cereals and yogurts or made-to-order cinnamon French toast Overall great stay, you won’t regret booking here

Spent 6 days and had a clean and welcoming room with basic amenities like 1 shot coffee pot and microwave Drawer space limited but closet space and bathroom spacious Staff were a hoot!! Loved the 11pm staff and the kitchen staff

Pool was warm and inviting and fitness room in good repair Used washer and dryer at a cost of $6 per load but hey I didn’t have to overpack Breakfast was clean with glove use, decent choices and non stop decaf, reg coffee and various hot teas (24/7) Located next to grocery store, fast food and Mexican restaurant Right off I-95 and close to I-495

Where to start with this place? Just phenomenal staff, so friendly and helpful We had to stay an extra day due to the weather and everyone couldn’t have been more accommodating The rooms are so clean and my kids couldn’t get enough of the indoor pool

When it comes to included hotel breakfast I’m not hard to please, but they really go all out! We stayed for 5 nights and they change the menu up every morning, I started each day of vacation with plenty of energy Highly recommend this hotel, hope to stay there again!

Bubs Odleson

We had a very nice 1 night stay at this hotel Our room was ready upon arrival and though it looks like it’s right off the freeway it actually is a little removed, so we found the room to be very quiet I love SpringHill Suites, but I never like the bathroom arrangement

I wish the door were in a different location so that the light doesn’t shine on people trying to sleep However, our room was very clean and that’s the most important thing Breakfast in the morning was good and well stocked

Dr. Rosie Ann Riley

This hotel is very very nice! I gave it a 4 because their is no room service, you can’t even request it I guess they will clean room after so many days I stayed 2 nightsI really have an issue with this because the rates are based on room being cleaned yet there isn’t a discount price

Hotels are really getting over on customers by doing thisI recommend staying here because very clean But the shower did have brown buildup in crevices on door More attention should be taken to clean these areas
