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!

We stayed two nights. We were a little uneasy as we drove in, wondering if we had the right location. It appeared that next door, or part of the hotel was extended stay, income sensitive housing with people milling about outside. We we were unsure of the security however had no problems and it was quiet. Location was convenient. Room... More

This is an older hotel but it was just fine for our three night stay. The rooms were a good size and very clean. We were on the second level that had a great balcony to sit on to enjoy the mild weather. The parking is good and the staff are friendly. I am getting a bit creaky in the... More

15 minutes walk from centre of Salem, clean and comfortable. Reception was helpful and informative. Accommodation provided plenty of parking and was quiet. Complimentary $3 cards for use at Dunkin Donuts just across the road. Motel is reasonably priced and would recommend.

The motel advertises as pet friendly, however when we checked in and then told the manager that we had a service dog with us, she became very annoyed and said we should have told her when we called about the room. All she needed to do was change the assigned room but she became very argumentative and threatened to cancel... More

The Pros - its a great rate, rooms are spacious although dated, ample parking, good restaurants just down the street. There is a K-cup machine in your room. Its about a 7 minute drive to downtown. Ice machine in the lobby. The cons - dated, ok, kinda 70ish, and there is train tracks behind the hotel that runs commuter runs... More

Our first motel stay EVER! Large room, two double beds, good bathroom, fridge etc. walked to the Black Lobster diner - felt safe enough even though the area was not the best! Staff helpful and a problem free stay. Not much more I can say - sorry trip advisor but personally I don't think forcing reviewers to write more than... More

I am from Tacoma Washington and have never been to the east coast. However, that didn't matter. From the moment I walked in to the Clipper Ship Inn, I knew that I had made the right choice. The front desk people were so friendly and treated me like I was famous; they even got out a map and circled museums... More

No problems when checking in and given brochures with information on the area. A large clean room with very comfortable bed. A bathroom nightlight would have been helpful instead of having to turn the fan/light on in the middle of the night. Close proximity to all attractions and eating establishments. Reminiscent of Family Motels or my youth, I would highly... More
