I was here one night due to a party I was attending in the area. I arrived late at night and was surprised to see how lovely and clean the room was. The bed was very comfortable, the couch area was nice and I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of space I had. Location is right off the highway... More

I was displaced from my home for an indefinite period of time, and this hotel was excellent. The facilities are first class, and the entire team made me feel right at home. Wanda was particularly helpful and managed to extend my stay when I needed a few extra nights. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Southcoast... More

Great hotel located close to (500 yards) the Seastreak Ferry terminal (ideal if your visiting Martha's Vineyard) and Whaling Museum. As with lots of hotels in the Marriott group, the rates include a reasonable self serve breakfast. The breakfast are the 'run of the mill'; pancakes, sausage, scrambles, eggs, porridge/oatmeal, coffee, tea etc.. The hotel staff are friendly and the... More

This hotel was very nice. It was clean with very nice rooms, a nice breakfast, and I had 4 kids with me and that was not a problem, even though 2 of them are young. The rooms were very comfortable and I had a nice view of the ships on the water from my room. The bathrooms were large and... More

Whenever we come to New Bedford this hotel is our choice. For the third time I visited New Bedford, I had to give a presentation about a book at the NBWM. Walking distance to the museum, fantastic seafood restaurant close to the hotel, easy to find, best service and very friendly staff. I would not look for another place.

Check in was easy and the staff was very nice. Room was very clean. Breakfast was great. I love the location, right across from the docks and several great restaurants. They also have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within a five mile radius. I look forward to staying here again next month.

This little Fairfield has been our favorite since our son relocated from Lubbock TX to New Bedford, MA. It is just across the Bay in Fairhaven - not a far drive - and lots of walking opportunities. Wal Mart is just across the street, so if you forget anything - you can take care of those needs. Restaurants around are... More

We stayed one night at this hotel when we had tickets to a show at the Zeiterion theater. It is very conveniently located to the theater - about a 10 minute walk - very easy to get to (and beats fighting traffic after the show!) We arrived at 1 PM even though the hotel check in time is 4 PM... More

This hotel is just a short, quick trip to the Seastreak Ferry station that goes to Oak Bluffs. That would be the number one reason to stay here. Other than that, the hotel is alright, but not spectacular. As gold Marriott Reward members, this hotel had very little to offer us. We stay all over the country and for just... More

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!
