Utilized the Hotel as a business/vacation hybrid and was pleasantly surprised. Staff was professional and attentive and went above and beyond in meeting our requests. We were disappointed in the first room we were given, but were upgraded to a better view (of the harbor) the next morning. The room upgrade fixed the view issue and the wonderful staff did...

Stopped here on way to the Cape. Great and clean. Great staff, great breakfast. I travel a lot and am very critical -- I give 5-stars sparingly. Walk across the street to two great seafood restaurants for great food and cocktails. 5 minute walk to the historic district. Easy access to Vineyard and Nantucket ferries.

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...

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.
