My parents stayed at the hotel while visiting the area and received great service. They're an elderly couple and we're well taken care of. Nice place! My family will gladly stay here again. The hotel was clean and well kept. They really enjoyed the breakfast.

Room and hotel was very clean. Free Breakfast choices were very good. Plenty of options. Coffee was very good. Recommend for stopping on road trip. Lobby area looked new and fresh. Only negative was that there was no safe in the room. Good bed--restful sleep.

We stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to New England. The service staff was exceptional. They made our visit of three days very comfortable and had the answers to every question immediately. I think it was because the entire place was run by women. They took immense pride in giving you a quality experience. The rooms were above... More

The hotel is very easy to get to. Right off the highway. It is about 10 miles to the beach and the cut town Portsmouth. My room is very nicely decorated. Breakfast has good selection but not enough sitting. Serving time is very short and there is a lot of people. Check in check out is very easy with the... More

We booked into this hotel to take advantage of the SIG Sauer corporate rate while attending the SIG Sauer Academy in Epping, New Hampshire. While the people there were very friendly and helpful, the facilities left some to be desired. Our first room was on the ground floor. It was very musty, and what was billed as a king bed... More

The hotel its self was very modern and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. The down side, the pool was very small. It looks large in the pictures but is only 5 feet deep and about as big as my room. The photos of the out side were misleading. It is on a tiny... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback based on your recent stay. Unfortunately, you are correct - our lot is small & limits outdoor possibilities. That is, however, an issue that we are aware of and have discussions on how to add a nice spot for guests to enjoy outside. Hopefully, you will stay with us the next... More

The staff at this hotel went above and beyond our expectations. They were very friendly and helpful in everyway. The lady who worked in the breakfast area went above her duty to make sure we had everything we needed. I think her name was Beverly. I will be a return customer. Thanks Fairfield inn in Exeter.

The facility is pretty standard Marriott. Rooms are fresh and beds are comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. (Special shout out to Sandra.) The nearby highway offers easy access to Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME sights and restaurants.

A very pleasant surprise, the people were simply amazing and the accommodations pristine. In fact everyone we met from around the area were extremely friendly, what a great place to visit. The hotel is small and very well kept, even with hockey teams involved, we had no issues. The breakfast was well maintained and the same and as good as... More
