My family and I were headed on a long ride to the Cape from NYC and decided to take advantage of the Free stay we had earned for a Category 4 hotel, which this was. It broke up the trip well and was just a short sidestep away from I-195 The hotel looked like a fairly new property throughout including...

Good location and good price. Worth the 45 min drive to Hyannis. Having ferry across street was convenient. Walking distance to center of New Bedford with some shops museums and restaurants. Good hot breakfast.

The Fairfield is built at the waterfront across Macarthur Dr from the active fishing docks. We had a harbor view and it was a great view. Very busy harbor, fascinating. The suite we had was wonderful. New, clean, nicely decorated. The staff was excellent. Check in, check out, other needs were attended to immediately. Very quiet. Great bed, slept well....

We used this hotel for our wedding guests, and blocked off a total of 9 rooms so people could stay here during our wedding. This hotels was a complete nightmare to deal with. We had multiple guests try to book a hotel under our wedding block, only to be told there were no rooms left. Because of this, we thought...

We stayed for 1 night on our way to the Cape. Fairfield Inn provided us with great accommodations. We had a wonderful harbor view room on the 5th floor. The hotel was new, modern and clean. Breakfast was good and offered many choices.

I travel extensively and never believe that I'm entitled even when staying at a brand which I've been loyal to. As a lifetime Platinum elite with Marriott, I only ask one thing---- when it's time for my vacation and using rewards, I'm treated with respect. Not that the folks there didn't respect me. It would have been nice to not...

Nice room, comfortable bed, average breakfast, good customer service. We stayed here for the New Bedford folk festival because of the walkable location to every event and performance. It's, logistically the perfect place to stay because of it's closeness to the festival.

I stayed here for a wedding which was being hosted at Bittersweet Farms in Westport. The rooms were clean and the amenities were adequate. For the record, the Wi-fi didn't work at all (we were on the second floor). The room was a bit expensive for what it was, but it seems they've cornered the wedding guest market so there...
