I am not sure if the hotel is newer or if it has been remodeled, but it was extremely clean, fresh, and comfortable. I would definitely stay again. The room was modern and the bed was very comfortable. My husband and I slept very well. The bathroom was also very clean and seemed new. The only thing that I think... More

We were here 2 nights for a wedding at a nearby winery. The hotel is very nice, modern and clean, but the $237 rate for a Sat night seemed high, esp since it was almost $100 less on the following night. But there are only 2 other hotels to choose from, and they are pricey as well. Probably a lot... More

We chose this hotel because it was tough to get a single night on a weekend close to Hampton Beach in the middle of summer. The check in was welcoming and efficient.

Nice hotel, the staff was friendly, nice clean rooms, descent breakfast. A big supermarket is right across and restaurants are in 5 minutes walking distance. Parking lot is available plus a small fitness room. PC in lobby area needs upgrade though and i would prefer more options at breakfast, but besides that not bad at all

Exactly what you should expect from a Fairfield Inn. Everything was clean, staff was friendly and location was perfect. The rooms were very quiet and couldn't hear the road noise. Would definitely recommend this hotel to traveler from business or pleasure.
