Had a spacious suite with beautiful view of the harbor on the 5th Floor. Hotel staff was amazing all around. The front desk staff was professional, friendly and met all of our needs. WiFi was...

Right on the water in New Bedford, reasonably priced. My room was absolutely spotless, with nice plush cotton towels (too many hotels skimp on towels!). I had a lot of questions for the desk staff, and they were unfailingly personable and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was fine. I'd give it five stars, but my bed was a bit on the... More

Stayed there for 2 nights, all staff including management were all courteous and very professional. Room and bathrooms are clean. Very comfortable beds, my room had a really nice view of the harbor. Great experience.

What a wonderful hotel. Love the decor and the cleaniness of the room and hotel! The pool and hot tub are great! Plenty of clean towels readily available. The breakfast is delicious with plenty to choose from, I enjoyed the fresh hot waffles and scrambled eggs. The hot beverages in the lobby are a huge plus, so convenient! Having teenagers,... More

I would absolutely recommend the inn. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and accommodating, breakfast was delicious with lots of variety. Waterfront location is very scenic, and convenient to both downtown New Bedford and Fairhaven.

I really liked the interior decorations in this hotel. A lot of thought and care has gone into selection of the colors and materials for the carpets, corridors, and the rooms. The colors are very appealing. Everything is done in good taste. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly. One employee at the front desk went... More

Stopped by New Bedford to visit the Whaling Museum. Very close to the museum, a very easy walk. There are many restaurants for lunch or dinner nearby. I'm usually a Hampton Inn guy in this class of hotels, but the breakfast here was better than I've had in most Hamptons. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very... More

Staff was very friendly, rooms were very clean and neat. We had a suite with a king size bed. Suite was a little small as far as suites go, but it was fine for what we needed.
