Very good 8.0 From 577 reviews

Very good 8.0
A bit expensive, but a decent option
A bit on the expensive side, given it doesn't include breakfast (although Dunkin Donuts is just over the road). On the outskirts of Salem, but close enough to walk to the main attractions. Good quality rooms and facilities, and friendly staff. Well located, if heading north into New Hampshire/Maine after your stay in Salem.

Exceptional 10.0
We enjoyed our stay! The rooms were spacious and clean, fresh towels everyday. The hotel is in a perfect location with plenty around it and a short walk to central salem. We would definitely stay here again!
Danielle, gb4 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Fine for a short stay
Great location; circa15 miles from the airport, 10-12 minute walk from the centre of Salem and there are two bars/eateries neigh on opposite (99 & Jamie's). Ample free parking. The room was large and clean, nevertheless I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time in there. I only meet the owner/manager at check-in and departure and they were informative and businesslike. Overall The Clippership Inn met my expectations and I would return again.
