It's hit or miss here. Would never return. Owner told me I was "lucky" they could move my family to another room, as they weren't fully booked. Then she expressed her concern that "I would bring bugs/ants to the new room", as though it was my fault the bugs/ants were there in the first place!! Ants crawling up the bathtub,... More

Room was " no frills" , but clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to all the Salem sights (about a 20 min. walk). As a bonus... we were given a Dunkin Donut gift card, for each person, for each day. ( located across the street) I would recommend, and stay here again.

The location is fantastic and the room was awesome. Great value! We stay there every time we go to Salem! It's right down the street from the center of town. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. It has an elevator for the second floor.

We stayed at the Clipper Ship last week during our trip to Salem. While the inn is not in the middle of Salem where the action is, it is an easy 20 minute walk. It is close to several restaurants as well. Our room was large (suite) and comfortable. Everything worked well. The office staff was friendly and responsive to... More

This is a small, older hotel. The place is clean, the office staff are all nice, the cleaning staff couldn't have been nicer. I'd definitely stay here again! They give you gift cards for Dunkin Doughnuts and two restaurants nearby offer a discount when staying here.

I can honestly say this is the quietest hotel we have ever stayed in. No voices through the walls, no kids running in hallways yelling early morning or late at night. The room was big. There was a room with a couch, table and chairs, and sink with a keurig coffee machine and a large closet, mini fridge and microwave.... More

This is a great budget place to stay. No thrills but clean and close to the sites. We were given directions to some close by eateries and handed two Dunkin Donut gift cards as the do not serve breakfast. Enjoy your stay

The room was spacious and clean. We had the end unit and it was a suite. There's a decent sized grassy area to walk the dog around for a few minutes. The desk staff was the only disappointment, in a time when customer service means so much. The woman in charge was rude and short with both customers and her... More
