The desk staff was friendly upon our arrival but could have been more helpful later on that night when we had a problem with our refrigerator. Woman at the desk asked me if I was only staying the one night and then left us to contend with it. She had just seen us walk in with grocery bags.The room was... More

Nice hotel, the staff was friendly, nice clean rooms, descent breakfast. A big supermarket is right across and restaurants are in 5 minutes walking distance. Parking lot is available plus a small fitness room. PC in lobby area needs upgrade though and i would prefer more options at breakfast, but besides that not bad at all

Exactly what you should expect from a Fairfield Inn. Everything was clean, staff was friendly and location was perfect. The rooms were very quiet and couldn't hear the road noise. Would definitely recommend this hotel to traveler from business or pleasure.

We were looking for a budget friendly hotel in the Exeter/Epping area since we were only going to be in town 1 night.

You pretty much know what you're going to get at Fairfield Inns. Budget-conscious. Nothing fancy. And unless the rooms are worn (as some are) or the staff is uncaring, they're all about the same. This one was fine. The location very close to 101 was a plus.
