I stayed here one night while on trip to Exeter. This was my first time at a Fairfield property and I was pleasantly surprised at the great breakfast they served! The staff was very friendly. My room on the second floor was comfortable.

If you have modest expectations, this Fairfield Inn can offer a pleasant stay. It is reasonably clean, conveniently located and offers very friendly service. The woman at the wrong front desk was very helpful and accommodating. This is an older style Fairfield Inn, Although the lobby area has been newly renovated. In the scheme of Fairfield Inn's that I have stayed in recently, it is on the nicer side. I think Marriott needs to revisit this concept to find its actual niche.

We stayed in this hotel while visiting a school in Exeter, New Hampshire. We had a room on the upper floor that had been recently renovated with new carpeting and paint. Very clean and comfortable. Although the main room was small the washroom was large and very nice. Our room was soundproof and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast buffet offered a selection of hot and cold options and great coffee. Reception staff were very nice. We will definitely book this hotel again.

We need place to stay for a night in Exeter and we had a Marriott certificate. Since this is the budget end of the Marriott properties our expectations were modest. The room looked like a smaller version of a typical Marriott room, there was a small indoor pool and a small exercise room, and the complementary breakfast was better than expected. So overall we were please with hotel.

Good value, hotel was starting to show some age. Friendly staff, pool and lots of breakfast options. Parking and some nearby restaurants and supermarkets. Town of Exeter down the road a few miles. A bit far from the beach, but easily doable. I have stayed there many times from opening till last year (2016). Never had any issues.

I was very pleased with this hotel. My room was spacious and super clean. Plenty of towels, soap, shampoo etc. plenty of hot water. Plenty of convenient parking. The staff was excellent and the notes from housekeeping were a nice touch. Breakfast was open earlier than posted (6:30am nice!) with plenty to choose from. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a week. Can not find one bad thing to say about it!! Very clean. The staff is so friendly. Free delicious breakfast everyday. Love, love, love! Thank you for making our stay very pleasurable!

We were disappointed with our stay. Our room smelled like dirty feet and the air mattress my daughter stayed on had a hole in it... the breakfast was nice and the staff was very nice but the overall accommodations were not so. We stayed at the end of a long hall and there were drunk people banging around at 1-2am (not the hotels fault.. but Judy obnoxious) Also the back door didn't work with the key card and they kept promising maintenance would fix it but they never did. Overall just not a very pleasant stay.. won't be back.

We stayed here for one night . I was running the local half marathon and needed an extended checkout the next day .The hotel staff was more than happy to allow me extra time to shower. I asked for 1 PM and they offered 2 PM so I would not have to rush. Breakfast was supposed to begin at 7 AM and we were leaving for the race at 6:30 AM. The kitchen staff already had the food out and allowed us to grab a few things as we departed at 6:30 AM for the race. The hotel was extremely neat, clean and presented in a desirable manner. Our room /suite was very spacious, with new and fresh linens on the bed. The bathroom was clean and modern. The suite was equipped with 2 TV's. Plenty of outside parking , friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. Free WIFI. Will certainly return again if in the area.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to the area. This is a very nice, clean and quiet hotel. The staff was friendly and it is close to restaurants and shopping. The rooms were very nice and in good condition.
