“Competent hotel in poor location”
Reviewed August 5, 2009

Management saved on real estate costs when it purchased the site for this hotel. It lies between a railroad track (perhaps unused) and the main superhighway running through Concord. You can walk to the quaint downtown area, but through a neighborhood that quickens your step. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained with adequate help from an indifferent staff. Make this your safety hotel if you cannot find other accommodations; really not suitable if you are not on business. It had those horrid, noisy through the wall air conditioners, evidently to drown out the traffic noise.

During our relocation to Concord NH from Wilmington NC, I really wanted to stay at this hotel while my household goods were in transit. Understanding that the hotel does not accept pets, I explained my situation to the manager Patty who graciously allowed my well behaved dachshund (Gretel) to stay with us for the 4 days. At our request, she placed us in the ground floor room, closest to the exit for Gretel's convenience. The staff again, made our stay comfortable & flawless. It's my pleasure to again recommend this hotel for your stay if ever in the Concord, Lakes Region or White Mountain area of New Hampshire.

A perfectly nice motel, with pleasant staff. Breakfast on the weekend was nothing special (hard-boiled eggs were the treat for Sunday) but was convenient. The bathtub surface was very slippery so I avoided using the shower. Look for the "lodging" sign at the entrance to the Common Man Restaurant and drive between the "dining" and "event" parking lots to the motel (I didn't see a street sign or a specific hotel sign).

Spent one night at the Fairfield in Concord. The hotel is along the Interstate, and in my Interstate-facing room, I could easily hear some highway traffic, but it wasn't terrible. The room was good sized with plenty of TV selections and comfortable bedding. There was cookies, bottled water, and warm beverages (coffee, tea, etc) in the lobby during the evening, and the breakfast selections weren't too bad, including frozen omlettes, hash browns, and breakfast sandwhiches, as well as a waffle station. The business center was useful, but slow (which I expected). I asked for a restaurant list, but it wasn't too helpful. The heating unit in the room was difficult to control, as I would go from too hot to too cold quite quickly. But all in all, I'd easily stay here again for the location and some of the extra amenities.

we stayed one night on our way from mystic to north conway,the front desk staff were excellent very friendly and helpfull ,cookies free coffee were available in the lobby and the continenetal breakfast was very good .there was free internet available for those without laptops. Although close to the main highway there was little to no noise ,it could do with a bigger sign to say where it is as you turn off the highway but that is a small point.we had a very pleasurable stay . If you want a good place to eat just walk over to the Common Man resturaunt /bar nearby very good food and service.

  • Liked — the room and the staff
  • Disliked — the sign to find it

Won this room through Priceline. Stayed 4 nights, room had a queen bed, sofa, chair, free SLOW wi-fi, room on top (3rd floor) and faced the highway. No noise from outside but some noise could be heard from inside. Mostly quiet but I could hear children running up and down the hallway and although on the top (3rd floor), it felt like kids were jumping on the floor above. This is a non-smoking hotel but I don't think it's strictly enforced. My room smelled like the previous occupants smoked in it. Saw ashes in the air conditioner. Walking down the hallway you could also smell cigarette smoke. Bath tub was pretty slippery and there was evidence that a bathmat (could see outline) used to be in the tub but was taken away. It could definitely use a bathmat as someone could easily slip and fall in the tub. Towels were thin. Soaps, shampoo, conditioner and lotion provided as well as coffee, sugar, cream to use with room coffeemaker. Bed was extremely comfortable, room was clean with an updated decor. The free breakfast was nice, the waffles were delicious. Lady that worked there said "I'm used to You People" when she asked if I needed help with the waffle machine. Didn't argue or comment to her about what she had just said because she's 60 years old. Smoker's milled around the front entrance into the hotel so sometimes that made coming/going uncomfortable. There's free water bottles and brownies right as you enter the hotel. It's conveniently located, close to restaurants and a very nice CVS. I travel to Concord about every 6 to 8 weeks and have stayed at other Concord hotels. This was probably my least favorite hotel although not a bad place to stay. I would stay here again if won through PriceLine.

Stayed here two nights on a vacation trip. As other reviewers noted, hotel is a bit hard to find with just a small lodging sign pointing to its location. Room was nice and clean, breakfast above average. Front desk staff very friendly. Check in was very fast. First time I encountered a paperless check in with nothing to do but give your name and get a key! Only complaint I had was a noisy air conditioner compressor, and smallish bath towels. Hotel is conveniently located off of Interstate, and close to downtown Concord.
