Clipper Shipp Beach Motel

Reviewed July 17, 2013

We were there recently for three nights; absolutely wonderful place to stay! I cannot say enough good things about it. We stayed in the newly renovated section and it is by far the best place we have stayed in by the ocean. Huge balcony facing the water with room for lots of chairs (there were 9 on our balcony), a table and a huge gas BBQ grill. The furniture is what you would expect in higher end places. Dark, wooden sleigh beds with very comfortable mattresses; huge leather recliner with matching sofa that reclined on both ends. Also had heavy dark wood dining table and chairs, flat screen TV on wall, fully outfitted galley type kitchen with full sized range, refrigerator, microwave; also has toaster, coffee maker, wooden cutting board and lots of different kitchen tools and cutlery plus cookware. The kitchen counters looked like granite as well as the lavatory surround. The bathroom was large with a nice tub/shower and a low table to keep toiletries on. One thing I would suggest is grab bars; the tub surface is a bit slippery and there is only a small plastic bar to hang onto, making it a bit scary for people with balance problems. Another plus would be a night light; they are inexpensive and older people like us look for things like that (plus those grab bars in the shower). We had Wi-Fi but no phones and no air conditioning. Unless it is really hot, you really don't need the A/C because the water is right in front of your suite and the ocean breezes will keep you cool. You can sit at the table and watch out over the water through the sliding glass doors. Well lit at night outside helps if you go somewhere after dark. Beautiful flowers had just been planted around our entrance and we had parking close to our room. The suite was very clean and the cleaning ladies were very polite and provided what you needed. The owner was on site and very accommodating as well.
We cannot say enough good things about this place. Don't let the outside sign fool you into thinking it is just another place; it is one of the best and we cannot wait to go back next year for a week. Fabulous view of the Bay of Fundy and if you are able, there are stairs going down to the beach and a deck just above that.
The main bed was queen size plus we had a separate bedroom also with a queen size bed, dresser and mirror.
Make sure you bring your own food or you can eat at a couple of local restaurants or grab something at a convenience store nearby.

Room Tip: Room 51 in the newer section is beautiful!

clean and owner is updating and renovating. incredible location right on the water and it was fun to watch the tides and walk on the beach. our room did not have WiFi but did have an ethernet cable. i would have loved to take my laptop outside on the deck but couldn't as i was tethered. we were in a small queen room and it was tight.

We found the Clipper Shipp by accident on our way up the coast of New Brunswick. We appreciated the comfortable beds, the cleanliness of the room, the full-size fridge & stove, microwave, coffee-maker, tea kettle, toaster, dishes & cutlery, TV & wifi. Every room has a wonderful view of the Bay of Fundy. All rooms also have good-sized decks with gas bar-b-ques & patio chairs.
The rooms can be rented daily, weekly or monthly. Although we only stayed one night this time, we'd like to come back again for a week or so.
The only thing we would need to remember before a return trip is that it is a little way to any grocery store so we would bring groceries & supplies from home or a near-by town.

We recently attended a family wedding nearby and many family members stayed at the Clipper Shipp in various rooms. The motel itself is right on the Bay of Fundy, and all the rooms face the water. Each room has a sizeable balcony complete with comfortable chairs and a gas BBQ/grill.

We stayed in a room in the new wing which was completed last fall. The room was large, with two queen beds- one of which has its own bedroom. There was reclining lazy boy type sofa and chairs, dining room table chairs, full kitchen, full bathroom. The dining room overlooked the sliding glass doors to the balcony which overlooks the water.

The motel used to be on a busy highways, but traffic has since moved to a new nearby four lane, so there is no traffic noise.

The owners were very accommodating to our large group, and they very helpful cleaning staff.

I'm trying to think of any negatives and there really isn't. It needs some landscaping around the new wing- to be expected, and food stores are a bit of a distance. Plan your grocery trip to St George or Saint John ahead of time.

All in all a great experience in a quiet clean modern motel with amazing views.

Room Tip: Try the new wing, room numbers in the 50's.

This is a great place if you want to look after yourself - full kitchen facilities, WiFi and nice TV with Lazyboy type seating. Most rooms have sleeping for 5 with one Queen in a separate room and I think every room has a large balcony with a great view.

Fantastic gem! From the outside simple but the cottage was charming-location idyllic and the owners lovely- peaceful lovely spot - we are here for a night but I could easily stay much longer- view is so peaceful that you forget you are just minutes off the highway-

Room Tip: Don't really know about children's activities md not a pool but a beach

We have been going to the Clipper Ship for 6 years and we love it more and more every time we visit. The staff are very friendly and accomidating which is such a blessing when you are travelling. We have small children so traveling to a laundromat is too crazy so thankfully the owners allowed us to do Laundry in their facilities which was just a small walk down from our room.

The rooms are gorgeous. From driving by the place you have no idea how gorgeous the inside of the large rooms are. You open the door and strait through goes to the large sliding class doors to your deck where your view is the beutiful water.

The rooms have a bedroom with a queen bed, dresser and area to hang clothes in a room just inside. There is a small kitchen, a bathroom with tub and shower, a combined dinning/living room area, and off to the side from that is an open sleeping area with a queen bed as well as a twin bed. The deck has your own bbq and very nice seats to just sit back and enjoy the view.

The beach is private and a PERFECT place to go find beach glass. The tide goes out leaving a great place to build sand castles with the kids or time to just look for shells and enjoy the sand beneath your feet.

It is the perfect place to stay for anyone who enjoys the beach, a place to relax and photography :)

Always recomending this place to friends and family :)

Room Tip: if walking is a bit of a challenge for getting down to the beach you can ask for a room close to the...
