Besides a location on the water, with great views of fishing boats and docks, the thing I like best about my many stays at this Fairfield are the people that work there. Ive stayed here numerous times and can say without a doubt that every employee ive interacted with has been friendly and professional, from front desk, to breakfast area,...

I stayed one night for a family visit in the area. The hotel was easy to get to from the highway. It is located on the working waterfront and NPS historical area. The neighborhood was walkable, with gift shops, restaurants, and the whaling museum. The ferries are across the street. The hotel is newer, so all was good. The breakfast...

Hotel was clean and moderately comfortable. Internet access was fair at best. Breakfast was included, but not worth the effort. It was evident that they were not adequately prepared for the crowd. Check out time was disregarded by housekeeping as they rushed in while you were having breakfast 3 hours early.

Thank you for your candid review of your recent stay with us. I apologize that internet access was of concern during your time with us. We did just run a new fiber optic line in to the hotel which should have doubled speed and we've contacted our provider to ensure that they are aware of the opportunity to improve our...

Very clean, good service, and great breakfast buffet! Fresh fruit, make your own waffles, muffins, eggs, bacon and sausage, juices, cereals. Also, just a short walk into town and down to the wharves. I didn't use the other amenities at the hotel as I was only there one night.

There aren't a lot of places to stay in the area, but this one is surprisingly nice. It's right on the waterfront and across the street from the ferry. There's a good restaurant across the street, but others are at least 5 blocks walking.

Super clean, well run Fairfield, right next to the Historic District with easy access and parking. Walk to Whaling Museum and New Bedford Whaling NHP. Interesting spot near the harbor and the fishing boats. Room pricing was just right. Nearby fish restaurants and also a nice Pizza parlor, Fish restaurants seem to be very pricey.

The location is perfect for walking to restaurants in the area. The hotel is extremely clean and quiet. We really enjoyed our one night stay and took advantage of the free hot continental breakfast. I would stay here again.

Located near the water in New Bedford, close to shops and restaurants in a very nice part of town. Extremely friendly and helpful staff that helped me organize for a presentation. Very clean rooms and common area. Breakfast staff very friendly and outgoing. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
