I traveled to Clayton this past weekend for a wedding and instead of being overcharged at the Harbor Hotel my boyfriend and I decided to give the wooden boat in a try. I am so glad we did. Our room was immaculate, comfortable, and had lots of charm. I will advise that you can hear your neighbors through the walls... More

Small quaint place in quiet part of town. Older facility but very well maintained. We stayed in the house which is very comfortable. Owners friendly and care that you enjoy your stay. Would stay here again if we have the opportunity.

I rented the Hacker-Craft House and was greeted by Berny. Had a great getaway here and enjoyed the stay completely. Outdoor social area with fireplace, patio, and self-serve kitchen made for a nice chance to hang out with our other guests. A very easy walk into town shops and stores.. I look forward returning to Clayton and the Wooden Boat... More

Thank you Berny and Valeriee and staff for a pleasurable visit to your town. This was our first time to Clayton. The room was quaint with coastal furnishings and the housekeepers were wonderful with keeping our room clean. Downtown was walking distance for shopping, eating and museum visits. The Village Dock is close enough to walk so you can watch... More

We planned this trip a month in advance. We could have stayed at the harbor inn but we would much rather book a smaller quaint, hospitable establishment. The owners are wonderful people!!!! We will defenitly be back.... I will recommend to all my friends!!! Wonderful people!!!

Wonderfully accommodating hosts in a very friendly, folksy motel. Had a great little weekend getaway here and enjoyed the stay completely. Outdoor social area with fireplace, patio, and self-serve kitchen made for a nice chance to hang out with our other guests. You might be a bit short on privacy but it makes for a friendly atmosphere. Rooms are small... More

I visited Clayton this week for a trade show and ended up at the Wooden Boat Inn after the large hotel in town we were supposed to stay at became fully booked. After spending our days at the large hotel for the trade show...it was a real pleasure to retreat to the Wooden Boat Inn for some R&R (we took... More

Another couple and my husband and I found this motel on Tripadvisor. We found it quaint, clean and neat, modern and nautical. The owners were extremely accommodating, and let us use the kitchen area for Keurig coffee and to freeze the fish we caught!

We visited with our friends, Dave and Eileen Heil and we both enjoyed the accommodations very much. The rooms were very clean and the owners were very hospitable. We both agreed that when we visit Clayton again, we will surely stay at the Wood Boat Inn.

Very comfortable, casual & quaint. Walk to everything the village has to offer. I will definitely stay here again when back in Clayton. Rooms are small with no frills but everything that you need! Coffee, fridge, ice, etc. on premise, not in unit. Adirondack chairs and fireplace in comfortable sitting area.
