Do not stay in room 24 if you need sleep! Our son was below us in room 1 and same problem, shame because rooms are clean and bright and owners nice, but who allows the location of a nightclub literally beside the Inn with liquor store across street! We aren't old people, just weary travelers who were tired and our... More

Although there was a mix-up on the rooms when we got there - We called Miles (number on office door) and he came over within 5 minutes and straightened everything out. The room was very nice, clean and more spacious then expected. I also was very happy with what they offered in the kitchenette area. 2 muffins, 2 containers of... More

I go to motels for two reasons: a clean, comfortable bed and a modern bathroom with - I shouldn't have to add this - hot water. Prices can vary depending on the amenities, but when you get down to basics, the bed and shower have to be right or the place isn't even functioning on a bare-needs basis. We had... More

We stayed one night at the Inn at Fairfield Beach because we were visiting the area for a funeral. The room was perfectly fine except that we didn't have curtains on our windows, and enough light from the outside flood lights came through the blinds that we could read by it with all the electric lights off. We had to... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! You may think this establishment is iffy due to being located next to a college bar and student beach living but this inn is lovely. We have stayed here several times now and every time it is immaculate. Lots of space in every room. The location is in fairly close proximity to Fairfield... More

Stayed here for one night. The lady in the office was super nice, friendly and very helpful. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. There was absolutely no smell as mentioned by other reviewers. The only complaint was the loud music from the bar next door.
