Stayed here one night while on a tour of New England with my family. No complaints at all. Everyone was very pleased with all aspects of our stay. Very clean rooms and common areas. Great breakfast. Slept well in their comfy beds. Great property!

Great location, great staff, always clean and friendly. Traveling every week is not the "fun" life that others think, and its great to see the same faces behind the desk every week --- willing to make your stay always as "homey" as possible! Thank-you to all!!

Awesome harbor views, exceptionally friendly staff, reasonable prices, and a great conference center... this is our "go to" hotel for our out-of-town guests, and corporate training and meeting rooms. For too long, there was no "exceptional" hotel in the area... but this LaFrance family property leaves our out-of-town guests and visitors enthusiastic... just a short walk from the Whaling Museum...

Marriott is by far the consistent hotel brand and this Fairfield Inn is very nice. I have stayed here a couple of times and I like the location for walking along the water and also walking the downtown of New Bedford. Staff has been very nice and accomodating although one of the morning employees tends to "badger" people about taking... More

We stayed at the fairfield Inn New Bedford Ma. for 1 night. The Hotel is nice clean and comfortable. I'd say it's average. We had no issues but nothing really great stood out either.

The hotel is not fancy but is very clean. We checked in on a Sunday and left on a Wednesday and didn't have any issues. The room comes with a buffet breakfast that is served from 6 - 10 am.

The staff is amazing especially Wanda. They're all very helpful and full of great advice about the local sights and sounds. I'd definitely recommend this location if you're in the area. The property is clean and secure. The waterfront view is beautiful. You're literally steps from downtown New Bedford's museums, shops, and restaurants.

I travel about 3 weeks a month. Finding a comfortable home away from home is important. This hotel has spacious suites that serve the business traveler well. Two rooms. Plenty of space to spread out and work. Clean and close to the schools where I work. Ask for a room with water view. The other side is a bit noisy... More
