Great location in proximity to historic downtown and the Cuttyhunk Ferry.

Clean!

Impeccable cleaning. Room was fresh, clean and modern. Staff is attentive and pleasant. Great dinning options within walking distance.

Exceptional breakfast food and drink with a cook/server who is very quality oriented and concerned that every customer gets a tasty and relaxing experience. Also had a dental issue and got a lot of help from the front desk locating a very excellent dentist right before the holiday. Saved our vacation as the dentist was able to provide a fix for the entire week. Many thanks

A very brief, but good stay. My only complaint is the constant badgering to submit a review of my stay.

Good place, excellent rooms. Can not get better for this price.

No extra toilet paper left in room. Shower had still water in the bottom. Makes me believe they didn't clean the shower.

It is a fine stopover Hôtel. One or two nights max

We spent the weekend in New Bedford attending the annual Moby-Dick Marathon, held at the nearby New Bedford Whaling Museum. Many of the other hotel guests were also attending the marathon.

Great stay. Day trip to Martha's Vineyard Nice location and ease of travel Friendly staff

My husband and I stayed here when a friend had a wedding nearby. According to Google, the hotel is a 2-Star hotel...guests rate the hotel roughly 4-stars. The staff upon check-in was slightly aloof, but friendly and courteous. The overall hotel cleanliness was pleasing, but our room could have used some extra attention. Overall, the room cleanliness was OK - there were some stains on the window curtains (both sheer and decorative), and the bathroom could have used a little dusting. But, the important things were clean. We did not visit the pool or fitness area, so I cannot speak to those. The breakfast was good; your typical hotel breakfast buffet selections. However, when the "scrambled eggs" were refilled, the "eggs" were under-cooked. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who finds themselves needing accommodations in the area, and would stay here again.

Nice hotel, comfortable and clean. Location right by docks so the surrounding neighborhood isn't too outsider friendly, but I'd stay here again.

Convenient location and friendly staff. We would stay at this hotel again.

Very good location and easy to find. The staff was very friendly. It was typical of Fairfield Inns where we have stayed before, so we thought the price was a bit high. We've stayed on Disney Property for less...but according to the locals, people like to stay there to be near the water and to see the tree colors in the fall. We were there for a wedding, so hadn't planned on spending that much - but it worked out ok.

We were in for a wedding! Clean, bright, good amenities. We were very pleased with our stay.

I was worried because I'm a 4-5 star traveler, however was required to stay at this hotel for business. [...]labeled it 2 stars and I've never stayed at a 2 star hotel. I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. Continental breakfast was good. I'm not sure where the 2 stars come from other than the severe lack of food outlets, shops around. Nothing at the hotel other than breakfast and it's a drive for any kind of food.I'd be back.
