4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The self-serve breakfast was good - juice, cereal, eggs, meat, toast, rolls. Nothing fancy, but plenty of variety. Room was fine. Everything worked. Front desk clerk researched my car (from sign in) so when I left it running one evening, she called me. I avoided a snowy hassle. Just a good place.

An overnight stay while attending a house party with friends in Exeter for NYE. We're Marriott Owners so, we used points to book the room. Super clean, quiet, fixtures/furniture looked brand new, everything worked fine. Breakfast (free) was the best we'd had at any Marriott/Fairfield property. The staff were top notch, friendly and went out of their way to make... More

My family and I stayed here for two nights and it was great. We had a bad experience with a hotel the previous night and this was a pleasant switch. Our room was very nice and clean; It wasn't outdated like some other hotels. The room did have an oddish smell to it but it wasn't unbearable or even that... More

I take training courses at Sig Sauer Academy in Epping - 10 minutes away from the Fairfield. Conveniently located, cheerful, clean with nice people working there and at a good reasonable price..... what more could you ask for ??? Oh, I forgot to mention the free breakfast in the morning is very tasty and filling !!!

I returned to the Exeter area where I lived for some 8 years back in the 80's/90's. So many changes and especially down Portsmouth Ave. Diary Queen had gone and also the old Shaws. There are now more Mexican restaurants than you could wag a stick at and that was surprising. I still don't know why that is, as all... More

I like this hotel, I really do. On several stays, the staff has been very helpful, very attentive. It is a recent build, with none of the renovation compromises that older hotels have. The bathrooms have been spacious. The furniture, while somewhat homely, is functional and thoughtful. Parking is easy, there's free wifi with none of the browser authentication gyrations... More

Farfield Inn is Marriott's budget brand and while this property did not have all of the lavish details you would find at a higher-end hotel, what they did have, they executed perfectly. This appears to be a newer property and everything was in perfect working order. The bed (king, in my case) was firmly comfortable. Almost every channel on the... More

Your employee,Kate, went OVER AND ABOVE the normal duties of her job to make my stay a great experience at your hotel. Customer service is a big thing that I strive to teach my employees. I should just have Kate come and do the training for me. She went so far to let me borrow HER own phone charger because... More

Nice hotel with great, helpful staff. The only issue I had is a 32" TV screen is not big enough for older eyes to see - this is an issue with Marriott's and their chain throughout with some exception with remodeled Residence Inn's. They have 37" TV's which are great. The Exeter hotel is about 15 minutes from RT 95... More

After a wonderful vacation in the Maritime Provinces we were on our way home and decided to spend the night at The Fairfield/Marriott Inn in Exeter New Hampshire. The motel is close to Interstate I-95 and is easy to find. There’s ample parking and the motel is close to many restaurants, shopping areas and gas stations. We had a room... More
