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

I just hosted a graduation party for my twin daughters at the Waypoint Event Center. The Waypoint is attached to the Fairfield inn & Suites, which looks like a great place to stay in the area. The Center and hotel are owned by the Lafrance Hospitality Center. I worked with Chris, one of the owners who was just wonderful to... 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. We used the Hotel as an overnight stay before visiting cape cod and Martha's vineyard. It was a great alternative to the High priced Hotels on... More

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. If you like to walk, the hotel is walking distance from the Whaling Museum, Seamens Bethel, the Martha's Vineyard Ferrry... More

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

I use to love this hotel. The people were the friendliest and the hospitality was second to none. I come here every year to go fishing. I travel with a group of 10 - 12 former Marines and with our spouses. I have to say I didn't write a review last year because nothing outstanding occurred. I saw Bonnie and... More

The hotel is lovely, it seems all new. Rooms are big, comfortable and clean. At reception the first woman who attended me - Mary - was not helpful, and unfriendly, almost rude to me; but other receptionnists like Nicole or Wanda were very nice and friendly. Rest was perfect!

We were looking forward to our stay in early April after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and left disappointed.

Stayed one night. Easy to find this property right off Interstate 195 and right near the water. Room was on the front of the building facing MacArthur Dr. OK breakfast but coffee bland. Good stay and good bang for the buck.
