We were very happy with the service and rooms at the Clipper Ship Inn. Great location and very friendly Staff. The rooms were clean and spacious. We loved the separate sitting area with doors that closed to the bedroom. Definitely Recommend a stay here. We will definitley be back - the Philly Girls!

Clean rooms, nice people easy parking and close to all the attractions (we where there for the Halloween season) and had a great time. The people where much more than accommodating couldn't ask for more. We had such a pleasant experience that I signed up just to wright the review.
