My friend and I stayed here on March 20. Our room was clean and spacious, I could tell it was freshly painted and staff was courteous. The lady at the front desk was flexible to our needs and was knowledgable about the area as far as places to eat or local activities. I would definitely stay here again.

The staff was very courteous and informative. They gave us great suggestions for meals and nearby attractions. The rooms were very clean. It was an enjoyable break from the large chain hotels. They worked diligently to keep the parking lot and walkways cleared of snow. When we go back we will book another room with them. It was nice to...

My husband and I celebrated my birthday in Feb 2017. We found this wonderful tucked away hotel in Salem and I can tell you we'll be there again tonight, and we'll always go back to Clipper Ship Inn whenever we're in town! From the reservation process to check-out, our experience was just fantastic. Our room was VERY clean and considerably...

We stayed for several days at this hotel and loved it. We booked a suite, and it was clean, spacious and just perfect for our extended vacation. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the Boston area.

Not nice staff, dingy rooms, over priced. No customer service at all. Closest to my home so family came to stay here. Never again! It reminded me of one of those hotels people stay in off the highway to do drugs...

Warm, clean, comfortable bed, tidy bathroom. They kindly called us to learn when we'd arrive -- we were going to be late. All was well tho our hostess looked a little sleep deprived. Room was quiet. Really liked the Kuerig coffee maker. Yes, nice place.

This place was surprisingly fantastic. I wasn't sure what to expect when we pulled in but the room was the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. While the main office is cluttered and musty, it was not in any way representative of the quality of the rooms. I highly recommend this inn!
