Stayed in a king suite. Nice size room. The location to the town restaurants and bars was walkable. The price for the stay was very affordable. Good selection of breakfast items at the buffet. Will be back next year and will definitely stay here again.

I did our check in on my cell phone as we left home, two hours away from the Fairfield Inn and Suites, New Bedford, estimating the time we expected to arrive. Our room was ready upon arrival, and since I had already checked in via cell phone, we just had to retrieve our key to the room. I was impressed...

Spent 2 nights here with 5 friends. Clean,comfortable accommodations. Friendly staff. Great location. Hotel was completely booked for Friday and Saturday making it difficult for staff to keep up with replenishing the breakfast buffet of the essential eggs and coffee. Did not seem they had prepared for the number of guests with reservations.

Great hotel and wonderful service. Two amazing seafood restaurants right across the street. Only minutes to Fairhaven, Boston, or Fall River. If you like boats and a fishing harbor ambience, you will love this hotel.
