We stayed 2 nights on a busy week-end. Hotel is situated close to downtown so you can walk to many bars and restaurants. Property is surrounded on all sides by streets and highway so there is no green space outside only parking lot. It is across the street from a working harbor that has many fishing boats. This is a...

Hotel is located in an industrial area, close to the highway and about 45 minutes from Cape Cod. Rooms are a nice size and clean. One of the beds in our room was sunken in so not the most comfortable couple of nights of sleep. Staff is friendly and check-in and check-out were quick. Breakfast had a selection of individually...

If you are willing to pay extra for a room with harbor view, this hotel is quite nice. Rooms on the other side suffer from street noise. What you get for your money is good chain hotel standard. Nice room, friendly staff and mediocre breakfast.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Although approx 4 years old it looked newer. The hotel was nicely laid out and felt spacious. Staff were very professional and all areas, both in and out, were spotless. One of the best Fairfields we have stayed at (and that's a lot!). Highly recommended.

If you are interested in exploring New Bedford, this is a great place to stay. We didn't need the car at all -- everything we needed was in walking distance, from the Whaling Museum to several interesting restaurants. With taxes, our double king room was $266 -- more than we intended to spend, but the convenient location was great. Wifi... More

Staff was very professional, room was clean and breakfast was quite decent. Walking distance to the whaling museum and national park, as well as several bars and restaurants. Convenient to major highways as well.

I had a free room through Marriott and this was the closest Marriott hotel to Cape Cod, which I was visiting for a couple of days. We were staying here on our last night after a couple of days in Cape Cod and I'm really glad it wasn't our home base for the whole stay. We didn't get there until... More

I stayed 8/19-22/14. The staff were hospitable, professional, and courteous. The quality of the hotel was comfortable, immaculate, and modern. I would recommend that you stay at this location. The mall is approximately 5 miles from the hotel. A movie theater, and restaurants is at the mall.

Didn't know what to expect having never been to New Bedford. We were in town for a wedding and this was a perfect location for the wedding guests to stay. This is right across from the Marina, loved walking around looking at all the lobster boats. Restaurants are within walking distance. Rooms were updated, spacious and clean. The main lobby... More

We stayed here recently while visiting family in New Bedford. Location is excellent, with a very short walk to restaurants, nightlife and sightseeing. Price was very good and hotel was clean. Plenty of parking, hot breakfast in the morning, and close to the highway if you're planning on exploring the cape. I highly recommend the Fairfield Inn & Suites New... More
