Now this is a perfect example of what a Fairfield Inn by Marriott should be. I travel a lot and usually stay in either a Marriott or Hilton product because of their standards. You always know what you are getting. Now I'll just say this is not the Four Seasons or the Ritz Carlton but for a Fairfield Inn they... More

Great hotel in the middle of NH next to RT 95 and within several miles of great shopping in Maine, Portsmouth, and North Boston. Staff is very courteous - clean rooms, great breakfast, good TV selection. Cons are: small refrig, no freezer compartment [not sure why Marriott doesn't place larger refrigs in their rooms like they do for Courtyard] -... More

Enjoying a winter weekend in New Hampshire when a snow storm hits. Fortunately we were guests at the best spot for a storm. While the storm roared outside, the staff, and I mean the whole team, was making this a great experience. As we arrived, they were shoveling out spaces for us to park. In the morning, the breakfast room... More

I was here on business for an entire week. The town of Exeter, NH is a very small one so you really don't have many options to choose from. Only two hotels, a McDonalds and off brand everything else. The place was very clean and the staff was very helpful. Exactly what you would expect out of a small community.... More

Great spot for my business trip. The property was super well maintained. The entire staff was top notch in every way. If all hotels had this level of service business travel would be easy. The breakfast area was very comfortable and the lady working was attentive to all the guests and had a smile for each one. Not only is... More

The entire staff at the Fairfield in Exeter do an outstanding job of making one feel welcome, from the personal and cheerful getting at the front desk, to the kind smile and hello offered by their staff in the halls, or the personal attention that Robin and the breakfast crew offer, making sure everything is just so.

We had to stay in Exeter due to scheduling of hockey games. Being a Marriott awards member I called and quickly got a room. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The breakfast was hot and kept full.
