It was a good location, close to the village of Clayton. It was very outdated and small. There wasn't even carpeting on the floor.Poor lighting and not even simple things like tissues. There was no information available in the room about the area or helpful guides of any kind and when I asked for some in the check in area, I was told to go to the downtown Chamber of Commerce.

Sorry your needs were not satisfactorily met. The rooms are not large but we have done quite a few improvements which include, as you mentioned, no carpet on the floors. There should always be tissues in the rooms, I apologize for that. The weekly free newspaper which has lots of information about what is going on in the are had finished its run for the 2019 season a couple of weeks before your reservation, so that is why we suggested the Chamber of Commerce. We will continue to try to improve. Thank you for taking the time to review.

Location to the event we attended was great. The parking lot was full with patrons of the restaurant when we came back to the motel. The noise level of the patrons leaving were loud.

Sorry about that! Every now and then our customers have too much fun! Noise is usually not a problem.

4 out of 5

Nice comfortable room, but not as described.

Pros: The room was modern, clean and comfortable and included a mini fridge and a microwave.
Cons: Provide at least a basic informational sheet in the hotel room -- such as area attractions etc. Inform guests of the restaurant specials at check-in.
Location: The location is close to the downtown waterfront and opera house. A golf course across the street and the restaurant is quite good, but a bit pricey.
The Clipper Inn is advertised (and shown in photos) as having a nice little porch in front of the rooms with Adirondack chairs. This appealed to me as a nice little place to sit outside in the evening. Our room not only did not have a nice little porch, it had a solid fence wall a few feet in front of the door. We had no Adirondack chairs, but one cheap plastic chair. *Other rooms had the Adirondack chairs and a porch. Being that I am a smoker -- the lack of a porch and no roof overhang outside our room meant I stood in the pouring rain to have a cigarette. Additionally, even though we checked in at the restaurant (which doubles as the office), the staff did not mention the "wine and dine" special at the restaurant -- which meant we arrived about 5 minutes too late for it. Very clean and comfortable room, but the staff need to provide information to the guests, the advertisements should be adjusted to indicate *some rooms* have the nice porch feature and it would have been nice to have some sort of informational sheet and/or area guidebooks in the room.
