Recent guest reviews

from check-in to check-out top notch staff, well-dressed and very friendly!

Everything was great. Complimentary breakfast was really good. Had waffles, cereals, oatmeal, eggs, omelets, sausage, yogurt, fruits, breads and juice. Only thing I didn't care for was the orange juice but may be my personal preference.

The hotel itself was okay, but the front desk staff and management are superb. They genuinely care about their guests, and if they don't, they must all be actors in their spare time. The room we had was very, very, small. Not much more than a bed and a tv, but I guess that's all you need. I just wish there would have been more room to walk between the bed and the bathroom instead of a narrow space. The room was also very, very, noisy. We could hear every element outside from the birds to the school next to it having football practice late at night blaring their music. Lastly, at 8:00am on Sunday my husband had to ask the housekeeping staff to move away from our door. Their were 2-3 ladies outside just gabbing and laughing so loudly it woke us up. We did let the front desk staff know and they said they would address it.

Nice clean hotel with great staff close to the beach. Small pool

The staff was very nice, and the rooms were very clean!

Excellent service. Immaculate hotel when it comes to cleaniness. Hotel's employees were very polite courteous and professional. I will recommend this hotel to anyone. The driving is only 5-6 miles to the beach.

I traveled to the hotel as a quick stop on my way home from a road trip. The staff was very helpful and courteous, free wi-fi is awesome, and they have computers and printers available for those without a laptop. The pool was a little small, but the beach is so close, that it really didn't matter. There is a Cheers pub behind the property and its fun to go there, have some food and a couple of drinks.Their complimentary breakfast has variety. All in all it was a good stay.

All of the staff went out of their way to greet me. I stay at Fairfiled Inns fairly often because some of my travel locations are only served by budget hotels. This one is one of the best I've stayed at in the last few years.

It was a fine place for my overnight stay between meetings. Got there at 6pm and was gone by 5am. Relatively clean and inexpensive. Staff was friendly. Rooms could stand to be updated.

It was a great experience and the staff was warm, friendly and caring at all times.

okay hotel for a couple nights
