“Pleasantly surprised.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the overall appearance and front desk service of this hotel. The rooms and bathroom were clean, modern and delightful. The complimentary breakfast was better than I expected. I would stay again.

Stayed one night but had a great stay. Clean rooms plus a great pool/hot tub. Its a new building with great service. Across the parking lot is a great seafood restaurant. Easy on and off from the highway.

We stayed at this hotel several years ago, and were expecting a better room despite knowing that the hotel was undergoing renovations. The room we were in needed upgrading... it was somewhat dingy, with some peeling wallpaper, and outlets which were hard to reach. The bed wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. The person at the front desk was not unfriendly, but not very friendly or helpful either. I know this hotel has rooms with refrigerators and microwaves, but we were not able to get one. We were brought a refrigerator, which was helpful. We had to rearrange the furniture to open the sleeper, and that made the room even more difficult to get around. The breakfast buffet was adequate, as well.

Thank you for staying with us again and thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is true that we are undergoing renovations and hopefully we will be able to serve you again when the renovations are done. I believe that your concerns will be addressed with the improvements that we are making, including the availabiltty of refridgerators and microwaves as well as the arrangement of the furniture making it much easier to utilize the sofa bed and providing more space in the suites.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated and we look forward to serving you in the future.

This is an older property & could use some perking up. That aside, the hotel was pretty good, the rooms were clean and aside from showing it's age, I didn't have any major complaints. The two nearby streets had quite a few restaurants, fast food joints and there was a grocery store within a half mile. The hotel sits back off the road so it was a quiet location.

I stayed in this property with my family during a long weekend in Cape Cod an Rhode Island. I booked the property because it was close to the highway and because I have stayed in other Hampton Inn. Front desk staff was nice and our rooms were great. Breakfast was included and was pretty good. There is not much to do in the city, so it is only convenient if you get there late and do not mind to have dinner in some franchise restaurant nearby. Nevertheless, it served us good for what we needed.

I normally choose Hampton Inn when I can, as I've always been very pleased with my experiences. This time, everything was only average. The room had a funny "febreeze" type smell that seemed to be trying to cover up something. The carpet and the chairs were stained. There was water damage and visible mold on the ceiling above the shower.
But the price was good (thanks to a group rate) and the location is very easy to get to, and very quiet. I would probably give this location another shot.

We enjoy the happenings around Fairhaven, Fall River and New Bedford and we have found that this is by far the best place to stay. They are always accommodating to our needs, the rooms are always spotless , and are not located near a major highway so I can add quiet to the list. They have a fabulous Continental Breakfast from waffles, assorted pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruits, egg omelets, and plenty of coffee. This stay was in the fall but we have stayed in the summer. They have a nice pool which is not too deep for the younger kids.
There are many attractions in and around the area with many good with many great resturants close by. The price was average for the area . They do give AARP, AAA discounts.

Room Tip: Try to get close to the lobby and entrances as the corridors are long and if you are in the middle i...
