The Compass Rose Inn of Newburyport, located on Center Street, brings you a world of comfort and one on one customer satisfaction for either a night on the town or business meeting in the area. For 8 years now, The Compass Rose Inn holds to this day one of the most classiest yet relaxing feeling as you walk through the door. When asked ‘Why Newburyport?’, the owner, Al Clifford, replied “I choose the location because of the revitalization of Newburyport created a destination for travelers for both business and pleasure. Newburyport has become a year round community with sufficient number of travelers year round too.” Al Clifford is owner and designer of the inn and takes an active role with our guests advising them of local activities and places of interest.

Gloria Martin has been the inn keeper for over two years and manages the inn under Al’s supervision. ‘It is my role to make sure tourists are looking at our website, calling our phone number and booking at our inn. As Manager, I keep the inn running smoothly and at the standard our guests expect. An extended, hot breakfast is always served each morning. The inn is so beautiful and easy to sell I don’t feel I am working. It is more like a love affair’. Visit them today at
