Facility quite ok and clean. Carpet in bad condition. We had a mouse in the room which disturbed us quite a lot in the night and we had to put any food away. Had a room on second floor with queen bed. Good location to visit Salem.

I booked this hotel through hotels.com It said it was pet friendly and I'm traveling with two dogs. Well I got there and they did not have a room for me. They only have two pet friendly rooms and they were taken. I was turned away and told it was my fault for not calling ahead. There was nothing written... More

This is my top choice for stays in the North Shore. I feel the location along with the value of the Inn make this my go to place. My daughter and I stayed here this past spring and we found the staff very friendly and accommodating.

Were from New Zealand and it was such a balm to come out of new york (which i didnt like) to such a wonderful place like Salem.... It is definitely on the grow (hopefully not too fast) and would recommend to any english speaking travellers .. Especially if youre interestered in the 1600s witch trials

I travel with a service animal and have never been treated so badly as this owner treated me. ( I am in the process of filing an ADA Complaint with the Department of Justice.) This owner demanded notarized documents ( which I produced) and still rejected my service animal. (a Maltese dog) stating something to the effect that "that fluffy... More

My husband and I just stayed here for a couple of days while visiting Salem and Boston. I've been staying at the Clipper Ship Inn for several years now. Always a pleasant stay. Clean rooms and Suzanne is so nice. Love the cat that always greets us. Just minutes from downtown Salem and so much more inexpensive than they other... More

This motel is ideally located. We walked into town every day with no problems. The staff have all been very nice and assisted us when asked. The room, while outdated, was exceptionally clean. Based on rate, location and cleanliness this was the perfect place for us and we would come back.

Stayed while on our way to Maine. The accommodations were adequate, the bathroom was clean, and the only time I saw a staff member was at check-in. I was a bit concerned by the place next door, which I think is transient housing, but no one bothered us during our stay. There was a cat in the lobby, which temporarily... More

Loved our stay - Our room was sparkling clean large and spacious. It came with a small kitchen area and a nice bathroom. All of the amenities worked exactly as they should. They offer impeccable service! Their receptionist was really nice and helpful. The place was immaculate and easy to find!
