Great price, clean room!
Don’t be deterred by the brick motel look. The front desk was awesome showing us the local spots to hit. It’s a 4 minute drive to the parking garage in the heart of Salem. The room was really clean.

Very good 8.0
The staff was very accomodating when we needed a suite rather than a room. However the facility is dated and very sparcely furnished. No clock, no radio only one TV even though there were two separate rooms. I had to call several times to insure a wake up call would be made. All in all it was an ok experience.

Stay Away
Surly front desk. No refrigerator- costs extra. She said I should have told them, but they'd move us for an upcharge. No bureau. Prison toilet. Drunks yelling at the manger in the parking lot. A $50 room for $200.

Excellent Hotel!
A friend and I visited Salem from NYC for the Witch City Kitty event. We were originally booked at a hotel farther away, but were excited when a room at the Clipper Ship Inn opened up. The Inn exceeded our expectations. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our car there in the morning and walk into and around downtown Salem. The location provides and easy walk to most of Salem's attractions. When we came back around 5pm, we were able to go to our room. We were originally booked in room with 1 King size bed, but were able to get a room with 2 double beds. The room was surprisingly spacious and very very clean. The room even had a little Keuring machine and k-cups. A definite boost to us, was Chumley, the resident hotel wandering cat. He greeted us in the parking lot when we arrived and let us know he was available for kitty companionship should we desired it! Note to who are not cat aficionados and/or are allergic: Chumley will not come near your, or bug you unless you call him over! My friend and I had a wonderful stay at the Clipper Ship Inn and look forward to returning in the future.
