One of the people tried to charge us 25$ for arriving late and tried to force us into a double room but ended up giving it to us for free because she wanted the queen room for another event. She did give us directions and a map which was very useful. The room was large, we had a table with...

And the reason is if you are traveling with a large party and you want to cram into one room to save money in Salem. This motel is extremely outdated, the beds are clean but not soft. There was a dirty wash cloth and towel left in the bathroom when we arrived. And it is not as close as they...

We stayed at the Clipper Shop Inn because it had a reasonable price for Salem. Honestly, I felt there was nothing really "wrong" with the room, but there just wasn't a whole lot that was special. It was, in my opinion, just okay. The room was okay, but it was dated. When I walked into the room the first thing...

Courteous very helpful staff, made adding a 3rd nite for our stay easy - and provided a microwave for our new room. Good guidance with things to do, and places to eat. Very short drive to downtown Salem and not far from Gloucester.

We stayed for 2 nights last October and found the room spacious and clean. The staff was courteous and professional, going so far as to guide us in over the phone after getting lost. The Inn is within a reasonable walking distance of all the local attractions. We have already made a reservation for this year.

Booked and paid for a room at 3:00PM. At 9:00PM they called to say they didn't have a room for us. Sounds like someone got a nice tip to give our room away. They were rude and nasty over the phone and actually blamed us for the problem. They didn't offer any help to find us another room. They just...

Stayed two nights because we wanted to see the sights and learn some of the local history. This place was no more than average. Beds were soso. We had a suite which gave us a little more room. Older place. Good location for a base but you have to use your car to get to middle of town. Parking was...

My paranoia paid off. I never bring my luggage into room until the bed has been checked. I went to this room and pulled off the sheets and inspected the mattress. Low and behold a clue to Bed Bugs. There were many flecks of black in the sewed areas. I flipped over the box spring and found some fecal residue...

On the upside: Inexpensive Clean Close to town Small discounts given at a few restaurants Keurig coffee machine in each room...although just a single cupper On the downside: Our GPS seemed to be possessed and would not help us in the least, so bring printed directions with you. My brother came from NH to meet us, used a different GPS...

Felt this was a good price for tourist area. Room was clean and very spacious. Comfortable beds, nice pillows. Keurig coffeemaker in room with plenty of coffee. Certainly possible to walk to attractions in town but we opted to drive. Staff is friendly and helpful. We were referred a nice seafood restaurant two blocks away that gives a small discount...
