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)


Perfect Location

3.8 on July 01, 2015

My friend and I went to Fairfield to run in the half marathon. We were lucky to find this hotel on-line. Just a half mile from the start/finish. It was the perfect location. Not an swanky hotel but perfectly lovely. The staff (owner?) was very friendly. Perfect accommodations and location to the race and beach. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.


A great place to stay!

We were looking for a weekend getaway and this inn fulfilled every wish. Beach, restaurants, everything was close at hand. The studio was perfect and sparkling clean. The muffins and juice are a wonderful bonus. We'll definitely be back!


What a wonderful staff!!!!!!

4.6 on June 08, 2015

I was visiting a friend in town and my trip was cut short. Since I prepaid, they allowed me to come back on a different date. Very understanding. EVERY employee I met was great. It is located across the street from the beach. Any kind of food is close by by car or delivery. There was a nice dining table on the balcony and inside by the fireplace. If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation this is the place! I did not eat at the adjoining restaurant. No reason. No opinion. Thanks!


Great place to stay!

4.6 on June 04, 2015

We've stayed here twice now as a stopover for our yearly drive to see relatives from Delaware to Maine. Wonderful staff. Clean rooms. And a hop, skip and a jump to the beach! A wide variety of restaurants near by. We will be back!


Charming Inn

4.2 on June 02, 2015

Great location if you have students at Fairfield University.


Great Spot!

4.6 on June 02, 2015

Cute spot, clean rooms, and within walking distance of the beach and shops/restaurants/etc. Staff was very friendly. Other reviews commented on the noise, but we visited in May so we didn't experience much of that. Overall, good value! Enjoy!


Disappointing!

2.2 on May 15, 2015

The room was comfortable, but did not meet the expectations as outlined in a very cleverly crafted website! The plastic/paper silverware and plates were tacky and there were not enough for our stay – we “recycled” – perhaps that was the intent. We stayed there in the month of May – not yet the high tourist season and it seemed like “party city” around us – I cannot imagine how much more noisy it will be in the summer! The continental breakfast does not begin until June, so our breakfast was sadly lacking in variation (muffin and OJ) – we had to get our own cereal; the lack of breakfast service in May is NOT noted on the website. To sum up, disappointing for the money paid and the expectation created
