We have stayed at this hotel in the past, nice friendly staff and nice stay for an older hotel. I had inquired about rates for this upcoming Halloween time. When I called back to tell them I also wanted to check their availability of rooms for September this person put me on hold, and when she came back on the...

this hotel is quaint and clean. I loved having a fridge and microwave for leftovers. kcup coffee station was refreshed daily. close to everything and plenty of parking. front desk staff was very nice. when I had to leave early for a family illness, they refunded my two nights stay.

Great place to stay. Quiet ,clean rooms. The suite is nice with separate bedroom re-fridge, microwave and sink. Would definitely stay there again. Close to down town and other attractions. Set off the road. Has an elevator to get to second floor rooms. Nice outdoor seats to sit out on the patio.

Recently spent 3 nights at the Clipper Ship Inn and had a great stay. Check in was swift and easy by a nice lady on reception who gave us lots of useful information regarding the hotel and local area. The room was really spacious and comfortable. The beds were amazingly comfy. Free tea/coffee included as well as bathroom toiletries. Room...

When I give someone a friendly smile, I always get one back. I found the staff at the Clipper Ship Inn to be very friendly and quick to offer helpful suggestions on places to eat, local events going on, and directions on how to get there. The room I stayed in was very clean, comfortable, and well kept. Along with...

This is not a chain hotel so it is subject to the decisions of private owners. With that in minfd don't expect a franchise experience. However it was close to center of town, clean and well lit. Room was ready on arrival and registration was prompt and courteous. The "lobby" looked as though it was an extension of the owners...

I've done a lot of research and I read most of the reviews, and I must say this place is very clean, very comfortable, yes it doesn't have a deadbolt on the door you get one key in the main office smells like kitty LOL. But we're only here to sleep and shower and for the price that I paid...

While checking in we were "greeted" by an extremely rude front desk woman. Our encounter was SO rude that we almost walked right out of the office and took our business somewhere else! I have never been treated so rudely by a hotel staff member. It has put a major damper on our trip and we will NOT ever bring...

We spent two nights here while visiting family in Salem, and it was a great alternative to the Hawthorne Inn: a bigger, quieter room at half the price. Our room was actually a suite with living room, BR and bath, very recently renovated (they didn't have towel racks reinstalled yet), nice and clean. The couple running the place are solicitous,...

I highly recommend the Clipper Ship Inn as the place to stop and stay if visiting historic Salem and it's surroundings. The inn is clean and they are always accommodating to ones needs. I have been staying here for over 20 years. And I come to New England 2-3 times a year. Wouldn't stay anywhere else !!!
