Our family stayed here for an event in town. Most of the staff we encountered were friendly except the lady who sets up the breakfast which was supposed to be served until 9:30 am. This lady started discontinuing breakfast much earlier than the time we we given. So much for a complimentary breakfast. If you were lucky, many a few crumbs could get snatched up before the breakfast witch brooms them away. Very disappointing.

This is the second time that we've stayed at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in New Bedford. It provides an excellent location to explore the whaling history of the New Bedford area plus its across the street from the ferries to both Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The rooms are updated with some rooms having a separate small living areas. The front desk personnel are both friendly and professional and willing to offer advice as to restaurants in the area. There is a small indoor pool and fitness center plus nice breakfast area.

My husband and I travelled to New Bedford for the first time for a business meeting and were so pleased with our stay. The hotel was clean, nicely decorated for Fall and staff were friendly and helpful. Mallory at the front desk was super great; friendly and helpful with providing information on the local area and restaurants close by. The room was comfortable and clean, and very quiet. Lovely view of the harbor. Breakfast was quite good with a nice selection of items. The only exception would be the egg dishes which seemed pre-processed but understandable due to volume. It also appeared that the hotel wasn't fully prepared for the number of people coming to breakfast on Saturday morning as a number of items were limited or had run out. But, overall, really an excellent place to stay and we would definitely return without hesitation.

I loved having two swims in a beautiful pool with no one else in the water. Everything in the Inn was clean and in great condition. The room was quiet and made for a comfortable night's sleep. The breakfast offerings were excellent and tasted good. Hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

We were in NE Bedford for a Parents Weekend at our daughter's school. I had never stayed in New Bedford and didnt know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the Fairfield Inn. When we first arrived, we were greeted by Jasmine at the front desk who checked us in. She was friendly, accommodating and has the most positive attitude. She even gave us a great restaurant recommendation. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you find yourself needing to be in New Bedford.

Stayed here with my 3 sisters for 4 nights. We were able to get adjoining rooms which was very convenient for 4 women. The front desk and breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good with a large variety of add-ons for your eggs, cereal or yogurt. Lots of choices. 24/7 coffee and water. The pool was nice. The only complaint I have is with housekeeping. Since we stayed 4 nights, we asked to be "refreshed" after the 2nd night. In one of our adjoining rooms, the bedding was changed, their used towels were taken and replaced with clean ones. One of their trash receptacles was left unemptied. Their coffee supplies were not replaced. The bathroom and bedroom were not cleaned. In the other room, all that was done was the used towels were taken and replaced with clean ones. Nothing else. We had to ask that they return the next day and at least change our bedding. I understand most places are short-staffed, but if they're in the room already why don't they do a complete job?

Nice hotel. Clean, great location. Includes breakfast that they leave out for longer so you don’t have to rush. The beds were comfortable. No complaints. They have some larger rooms which I recommend since that have sitting areas with a couch. Plenty of parking.

A decent place to stay. Very friendly staff and rooms and common areas were very well maintained and clean. Free parking and complementary breakfast daily. Clean and decently equipped gym and clean indoor swimming pool with clean towels available. Location is near highways and across the road from a working harbour with commercial fishing boats arriving and leaving regularly.
