Had a wedding in a neighboring area, and the cab wouldn't come to get us. The staff at the Fairfield Inn and Suites drove us to the wedding and were great to talk to along the way. I would advise staying here without question! Thanks again

This was our third time staying at this hotel. Rooms are always very, very clean and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Sherri in housekeeping went out of her way to make our room as comfortable as possible. Mary at the desk couldn't have been more accommodating and concerned about our needs for the trip. Breakfast was good and... More

I had a bad camping experience so decided to go to a hotel instead. This Fairfield must be newer because everything from the lobby to my room to the breakfast area was sparkling clean and modern. The free breakfast was not super fancy but everything was good and there was a huge selection (remember people, it's FREE). Coffee was great... More

I'll start by saying that there were a few things I didn't like. The key card reader at the front door is a real pain, works when it wants to. The room wasn't as big as I anticipated for a king. There were quite a few small ants around the nightstands, but the rooms are very clean. That aside, the... More

I can't say enough good things about the team at the Fairfield, super folks who know and care about guests! Friendly greeting at the desk, no matter how tired I am, or late the check in, simple but healthy breakfast, the property is maintained in a new state, and as both a personal and business traveler, I appreciate the two...

This was a good hotel to sleep in, bed was comfortable, room was clean, nice bathroom. Only thing is that breakfast was very basic, however I guess that is the standard in this type of business hotels... another thing that was annoying was that I would have to sign in to their wifi every time I used it... in other...

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
