We spent one night at this hotel for a weekend away trip. It's a modern hotel with clean rooms and an indoor swimming pool and hot tub. The breakfast was included in the room rate and included a good selection of self serve hot and cold servings. The hotel is a short walk from the whaling museum and lots of... More

We had a lovely & spacious suite with a view of the bay. The Inn is centrally located near the Whaling Museum and historic New Bedford. Check in and check out were very easy. The staff were very friendly.

Happily, it is a standard Fairfield Inn: very good service, nice, clean modern room, great complimentary breakfast & internet. The bed was very comfortable! Most of the local restaurants are a little beyond walking distance.

Modern hotel down on a working waterfront. The room are high class, staff is extremely friendly, breakfast had fresh crushed strawberries for your waffle, easy walking to the National Park area of town with many interesting older buildings.

Stayed here three weeks on business and was pleased all around. Facilities are quite new and the staff was friendly and outgoing. The location is right in the middle of a block of good restaurants, bars, and the historic whaling area. I don't think our team had to take a car once to find something to do/eat/drink evenings. The closest... More

We reserved a block of rooms here because we hosted a post-wedding brunch at the Waypoint, which is located in the hotel. The rooms were very clean and updated. It was quiet and we had a very nice view of the fishing boats. Everyone was polite at the front desk. Our hospitality bags were given out to our guests and... More

We stayed here for one night. When we checked in and asked for an upgrade, we were told that all the rooms are the same size (not true), but that's fine. The room we were in was clean, quiet, and comfortable. No complaints. We didn't use any of the amenities or stay for breakfast, but the coffee was fresh in... More
