The staff was terrible they actually let themselves into the room without knocking while my friend was naked and sleeping in the bed. Than tried justifying it while yelling and attacking her verbally. I went to get food at the restaurant for dinner only to come back to my room 138 and see the guy owner trying to put a lock on the handle of my room so I couldn’t get in. Was easy to come to the office but it was odd and illegal to try and lock my friend who was in the room traumatized by the events that happened. They claimed there was a leak or something but totally violated our trust. Terrible service here snd a extremely bad experience I will never go back neither will I recommend this place.

Let's set the record straight. Chris D of Westfield, Ma booked a room for one night. He appeared with a woman who had trouble walking straight. He said she just left a "program" two days ago. He was provided a key to the room. Two or three hours later, we had water cascading down the foundation wall in the basement. The water problem was directly under the unit Nancy and Chris occupied. We knocked on the door but no answer. Called Chris 3 times but no answer despite the sense of urgency. In the meantime, the water continues. When no one answered, we opened the door and announced why we were entering the unit. At the time, Chris was not there. Nancy was but was in the bathtub and failed to answer repeated knocks on the door. We spoke to her with a partially open bathroom door between us. Chris finally called back about 40 minutes later. Was asked to come to the office to discuss the situation. Instead, he decided to avoid the office and go back to the unit instead. The lockout device was not applied to the doorknob. Chris came to the office all upset. Never did explain why he did not answer our urgent calls. Kept talking about his "rights". So, the Salem Police Department was summoned to explain to Chris that his rights are limited at a hotel. The inability of Chris and Nancy to respond to the situation can be interpreted as willful destruction of our property. The police officer spent 20 minutes explaining the rights of the Clipper Ship Inn which supersedes his "rights". This morning, Nancy and Chris departed but not without going on about their "rights". Offered to call the police again but they declined. A plumber did show earlier today and room 138 is currently not available today. The situation could have been handled differently if Chris and Nancy responded in a timely manner instead of avoiding the situation at hand. As far as returning, the Clipper Ship Inn would never accept any future reservation requests from these two. We will be happy to provide a copy of the police report to anyone who is really interested in this situation.

Excellent location for the price, plus the extra gift cards and discounts given at checkin were a pleasant surprise. Room was a little old-fashioned but clean and functional, rather like the vintage motor inns of my youth. Would go back again.

This is an older inn with a good location near to downtown Salem. There is no security lock inside the room and no deadbolt.

When you received the key to the unit, we asked that you notifiy the office staff if there are any problems with the room. We never heard from you regarding the security lock. If you did, we would have explained that the security lock is in the door knob. This prevents anyone gaining access to the room.

Was in town for a wedding and waited too long to book a hotel downtown — the Clipper Ship Inn was in a less convenient location but was SOOOO much more reasonably priced. It did generally have that rustic motor court feel (it's not particularly luxurious) but it was totally serviceable for a night or two, and it's only a 20 minute walk from downtown. It also wasn't terribly difficult to get a Lyft/Uber there, though apparently the location is JUST confusing enough that drivers usually had to kind of circle in on it, meaning it didn't save much time over walking.
