The hotel was clean and in close proximity to where I had to be for a wedding. The room was Ok but there was a problem with the water in the room. In fact, we had no water at all. There had been some kind of problem with a room upstairs and the water had been shut off inadvertently. We...

First let me say that the staff are all very nice and helpful. If I could go 3 1/2 stars I would. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything your neighbors are saying (or screaming) and the roads around the hotel are loud. The first room I was in smelled like body odor. The next room was...

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good, as far as hotel breakfast goes. Perfect location in the city with great views of the boats. The weather wasn't great while we were there but you could easily walk to many attractions and restaurants from the hotel.

We stayed late at St; Lukes's hospital, wanted to return early, so stayed in New Bedford rather than driving back and forth. What a wonderful surprise! Large, comfortable, clean room. Considerate helpful staff. Free breakfast - a little better than normal as free breakfasts go, but the omelets are not cooked to order and are tired and overdone. Call hotel directly...

Our family stayed for three nights through Christmas. The hotel staff was friendly, the rooms were clean nd comfortable. The location and views are great. We took a five minute walk to local cafes and restaurants and just a short walk to the Zeiterion Theater. We highly recommend!

A Marriott property, so definitely quality, but still just an economy hotel. King beds are very queen. Hot breakfast was almost as good as a HI Express. Location was easy to get to, and from. Plenty of dinner options in walking distance. 3 stars is to little, 4 is too much.

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.
