Very Nice Stay

4.4 on June 26, 2016

Wonderful suite, and very clean. Close to beach, and it was nice that they offer beach equipment. The muffins were good the first day, but we could not eat them every day. Variety of breakfast things would have been nice.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for the kind review! We apologize that we don't offer a variety of breakfast items here at the inn but there are a lot of great restaurants in town that are definitely worth a try. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again!


Memorial Weekend Family Celebration

5 on June 13, 2016

We selected the garden room because it was located on the ground floor. As soon as I entered the room I was greeted with a charming and beautiful suite. Instantly I felt we were going to have a great getaway. The room is clean and spacious with a stocked kitchen. The bathroom is also big. My son had a pack n play to sleep in which was provided by the hotel. A bonus feature we had was a patio with rocking chairs. The hotel has access to a private section of the beach and the public section both walking distance. For our comfort and convenience we were given chairs, umbrellas and towels. You are also a short drive from the shops and restaurants. I can't wait to stay here again.

Innkeeper Response

Nice hotel in Fairfield

4.2 on November 02, 2015

Disappointing noise from the drinking establishment next door but that was just our room (two other rooms our family rented that weren't on the end were quiet) Great place real close to the beach

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the feedback! Sorry that the Seagrape Cafe made a lot of noise typically it is not so bad. Our rooms on the second and third floor get hit with less noise! During the summer months the beach is even better and we are Fairfield's closest inn to the beach. We hope that you will come and stay with us again!


Visiting sacred heart university

4.6 on September 21, 2015

A great place to stay an relax. Staff were unbelievably nice and accommodating and a welcome change from the usual hotel. It was evident the owners take great pride in their establishment. Room (#33) was the perfect size for two for a getaway. Easily accessible to many awesome restaurants and things to do like the beach. Only downside was no dresser to put your clothes away. Will be back!!


Wonderful weekend getaway

Great getaway

4.2 on August 29, 2015

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely, intimate get away at the Inn at Fairfield Beach. The staff were wonderful and accommodating. They loaned us beach chairs and were responsive in general. It was great to be so close to the beach and to be able to see the bay from our unit (nautilus suite). We appreciated how clean the room was and the care that was taken to keep it that way by staff. There were also several great restaurants in the vicinity. We have specific dietary needs, so we went off site to find breakfast options, which worked out. Glad for the coffee maker in room! We would happily recommend this Inn!


Perfect Weekend Getaway

4.8 on August 25, 2015

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday and the hotel went above and beyond our expectations. The room we had (#27 The Sand Dune) was cozy, clean, and so nice. My girlfriend loved the muffins each morning and I loved the Sea Grape Cafe next door, awesome little bar with good food. The beach across the street which the hotel gives you wristbands for is gorgeous, just keep an eye out for the locals. They will not hesitate to come over to you and tell you its a private beach and these are the rules (while handing you a paper with said rules listed), bunch of rich snobs. We brought it up upon checkout and the staff told us they butt-heads with those people a lot and its just an annoyance. Follow their silly rules and you will be OK. This hotel is amazing and I highly recommend it for a getaway, next time I plan on staying here an extra day or two.


Stay in Fairfield

3.4 on August 18, 2015

Overall, we loved the suite (Room #35). 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms, with a very bright, clean and comfortable living area, with small kitchen area. My only issue was the overuse of plastic plates, cups and utensils in the kitchen. Much prefer the real thing, and plastic cheapens the concept of such a nice room. (Could not even make a salad with only a flimsy plastic knife)
