Well I thought I did my research the 5 locals I talked too said this was the best of the best in Clayton. We had reservations at 7 we were seated at 7:10. We ordered a couple of drinks which were delivered promptly. We then ordered an appetizer and entrees. Escargot Tuna for me and frog legs for my wife.... More

During our visit in July we decided to stop one night with the kids and try the Clipper Inn and we're so glad we did. It's a bit pricy but I will say that it's worth every penny. You truly get every bit of what you pay for here. The menu is great, there's something for everyone and the kid... More

A last minute decision to travel to our favorite spot, left us with, "No room at the Inn" experience. Then, my husband remembered that the Clipper Inn Restaurant also had a motel unit. Lucky for us they did have an opening. It was a very neat and clean room. Nicely appointed with TV, microwave and refrigerator. We would gladly stay... More

We stayed four nights at the Clipper Inn Motel and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room which was somewhat small but had everything that we needed. The location was perfect for tourists to get to the sightseeing opportunities in the area plus had the great advantage of the Clipper Inn Restaurant located next door. The food there... More

For my birthday weekend my wife booked my birthday dinner at The Cliipper Inn while we were staying in Alexandria Bay. This is by far the best restaurant in the 1000 Islands especially for families. The food is exquisitely prepared. The menu offers something for everyone from chicken, pasta and steaks to seafood and the prices are more than reasonable... More

Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend 2015. Very pleasant experience, room was clean, large, and quite. Very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend and will stay here again. Of course the Restaurant is among the best in the area.

Very nice atmosphere, pricey, but delicious. If money is no object this is where you want to be,I can only go as a treat. However, owner provides great community involvement with affordable fundraisers, always mingles with customers, very nice man. Food is delicious.

The Clipper Inn was perfect for our three-night visit for a family wedding. Convenient and comfortable, affordable and pleasant, the room was updated and the staff was great. The hardwood floors tended to collect some sand from the parking lot, so a few more rugs would have helped. Still and all, we loved our time at the Clipper.

The Clayton area of the spectacular Thousand Islands region is well populated with older motels reminiscent of fifties cabin colonies, with minimal amenities. The Clipper Inn is an outstanding exception. Its 12 units are attached to one of the areas better restaurants of the same name. There is plenty of parking, and - highly unusual - plenty of electric outlets... More

Had a "weekend away" and stayed here. Older style motel but very clean and comfortable. The restaurant is worth the trip alone - a really excellent and affordable meal with great service. All told, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again anytime.
