The Fairfield Circle Inn was refurbished about two years ago and now has the feel of a boutique hotel in what was once a classic Americana roadside motel. The Inn sits on a slight hill on the busy-ish Post Road, however it's quite quiet and peaceful. We were beyond pleasantly surprised by our spacious and comfortable room that was decorated...

Was at the hotel for a friend's wedding and paying for what I believed was a better hotel. Checking in was great and looking around at the lobby gave me a good feeling. Clean, modern and well appointed. I was then informed I would be staying in the "other" building. The other building was a motel...outside entrance, peeling paint, rusty...

I stayed at The Circle Inn for 6 nights in mid April and could not have been happier with my choice. The room was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The staff I met were helpful and courteous. I felt completely at home and, if circumstances had allowed, I would have been quite happy to stay for a lot longer! I...

We stayed overnight for our niece's wedding and the staff were super people. The Circle Diner Inn was awesome and the service was great. The room was nice and clean with the exception of the shower head fell off when I moved it. Lol

I stayed here with my family for one night. Rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel staff were really friendly. The man on the front desk - Darin - was especially gracious and helpful. It makes such a big difference to be greeted with a welcoming smile when you check in, as we were by Darin. He gave me some...

Best place ever! The service was great and the rooms were spotless. It was our first time in Connecticut and they made the experience even better. The pool was amazing and breakfast was even better! There's so much to do nearby as well. My husband and I will definitely return for our anniversaries

This hotel has been updated and super cute. Bathrooms in room are cottage style, beds comfortable, and good breakfast. I noticed the pool area and would be great in the summer time. Certainly a good find
