Being literally across from a private, tranquil ocean beach has as its advantages. We found Fairfield to be a mecca for fine dining and extremely interesting. The inn's staff was very cordial and knowledgeable. The Cottage suite was fresh, clean and comfortable. We will definitely recommend this to our friends.

This was a great location if you want to be able walk to the beach. Quiet room, we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was very quiet and clean. Staff was friendly. I have read some of the rooms can be noisy, perhaps that is more when school is in session as it was very quiet for our June... More

The room was really nice, with a eating area, cooking area and sitting area in addition to the bed. It was about a 30-second walk to the beach, with access to a private beach instead of the crowded public beach down the road. The room was very quiet and well kept.

The room was comfortable, but did not meet the expectations as outlined in a very cleverly crafted website! The plastic/paper silverware and plates were tacky and there were not enough for our stay – we “recycled” – perhaps that was the intent. We stayed there in the month of May – not yet the high tourist season and it seemed... More

Our son attends Fairfield University, so it is a perfect spot when visiting. The rooms are vey clean and quaint. The refrigerator was stocked with tasty muffins, OJ and coffee creamers. Our room was huge! Perfect spot if you are staying during the summer and plan to hit the beach. Each room is different in both size and décor. Will... More

We stayed two nights. Room was very clean and as advertised. Kind of a college town area but clean and no trouble. Street noise did not bother us at all. Off street parking was very helpful. We would stay there again.

The Inn has a bar attached . Impossible to sleep with the noise the bar and kids in the street are making. Police consider this normal. No town noise ordinance. If you check in after 8:3opm you have to go the bartender to get your key. Very low class.

I stayed in the Regatta Studio for 4 nights while traveling with my mom. Very comfortable & spacious room, beds were very comfy, bathroom was great, and the kitchenette was a big plus. The daily orange juice and muffins were great; ask for the cinnamon crumble-top ones! Free wifi was reliable. Room was nice and warm, helpful since its CT... More

We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite. It was beautiful on the top floor. Spacious and airy, bright and uncluttered, clean and comfortable. The view was beautiful from the room and the deck. Nice big muffins and orange juice in the little fridge. Coffee/tea and microwave. Perfect!

It's an older building, but the room we stayed in was recently renovated. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful and even escorted us to our room.
