I didn't stay here but booked two rooms, looked at four rooms and left without staying. Yes they still charged me for them and I will be disputing with my credit card company. This is a MOTEL with private entrance rooms which was not how it was advertised. Management is considerate and polite, but carpets are STAINED, linens are beyond use with stains and everything in the four rooms I saw was very faded and musty. While they may be trying to renovate and suffering limited stays with the pandemic, I would not and could not spend the night here. We left and drove home rather than stay and the fact that they could charge me speaks volumes. I do not recommend this unless you are underage teens looking for a place to hang out as that is the vibe here.

Hotel's Favorite
I am a 74 year old handicapped person. This is the second time I have stayed here. The rooms and Lobby are clean as can be. The manage takes pride in his hotel and it really shows. I stayed in an accessible room with a roll in shower and king bed. The shower is huge. Everything was perfect. We watched our grandchildren during the day while their parents did work in their house. The manager brought us extra chairs so the kids could do on line learning for two days. I highly recommend this hotel. Great Value!!!!!

We visited this property for a one night stay. It is conveniently located close to the town and there is an old fashioned type diner right next door. The room we had was quaint and dated but extremely clean and tidy. There is a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. Prior to COVID I understand breakfast was provided but in the new normal it is not due to sanitation reasons. The staff are friendly and helpful making check in and out flawless. I will definitely stay here again.

After a very drawn out process in which I spoke with three employees about a reservation cancellation, I was finally put through to the manager. I was very frustrated with how things had played out to that point, and was prepared to leave a review stating how poorly I felt I had been treated. But after speaking with Rebecca, the manager, I came away feeling differently. She made an honest effort to let me speak through my frustration, and committed to looking into the issue for me. I really appreciated that. It can't be easy in her position. So while I didn't end up staying at the hotel, I can vouch for Rebecca, and can envision she would be a kind person to interact with at the hotel. Because of her, I would consider coming back to the Circle.

For New Yorkers with or without a car, this is a nice getaway. Metro North to Fairfield Station, Lyft to the hotel. This hotel is quaint and reasonably priced, very clean and Covid careful. The rooms are spacious-- vintage/retro style- not fancy but comfortable. The pool is lovely and surrounded by trees. Jennings Beach is a .5 hr. walk or 5 min. drive through a lovely historic residential neighborhood. The beach is clean and well maintained. Conveniently, across the street is a suburban shopping center. Next door is an old fashioned American diner with the usual fare, and healthy choices as well. Fairfield's downtown is sophisticated and bustling, with upscale restaurant options. Connecticut's virus numbers are low, so fortunately, there are affordable and conveniently located travel options during this time, when one really needs a break from the city.
