Inn at Fairfield Oct 2017

4.2 on October 18, 2017

Clean and spacious apartment room 35 with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had a good stay in comfortable beds. People need to be aware that the two rooms are open plan with no doors into the two bedrooms so are open to the lounge and dining area.


Fall 2017

4.6 on September 22, 2017

This was our 4th time at the Inn. Great location to the beach. Pleanty of shels and seaglass to be found. Tis was our first time staying in September, Fairfield university dorms arw at lantern point beach area , students were enjoying the beach (hundreds of them) but they were all curtious and not a problem.

Innkeeper Response

Clean and bright -property is properly classified as a guest house not a B&B.

3.4 on September 05, 2017

Placing orange juice and two muffins in refrigerator does not transform the property into a B&B. Beach access is overstated. One can walk along a narrow strip on the beach. The owner, however does have a limited number of car passes that allows visitors to use a lovely beach a few blocks away. August 2017

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your feedback and value all our guests opinions. We are glad you enjoyed the beach just a short distance away.

Great!

4.2 on August 23, 2017

Room was great/beach was beautiful. Quite loud at night since our room was RIGHT over the bar next door. That was my only complaint. Next time, we will stay on the other side of the hotel! Besides that--everything was lovely!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We are sorry that the Seagrape Cafe was loud and hope it did not prevent you from sleeping. We hope that you will come back again so we can ensure you have the comfortable and relaxing stay you deserve.

Very quaint

4.0 on August 22, 2017

Very quaint. Would most likely stay again. They only thing I was disappointed in was the "view". Paid a little extra for the view and the water view was a stretch literally. We kinda had to strectch our necks to the side and up a bit to see a very small piece of water. Besides that we loved the place.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate that you took the time to write us a review! We hope we have the pleasure of accommodating you again in the future!

Wonderfull small Inn in quaint neighborhood. The room was clean and bright.The beach was small but private and peaceful. Inn provided beach chairs and towels. There was a bar/restaurant next to the Inn that was not inviting but the staff had a selection of menus and we had great food delivered. Great place!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We hope to see you again soon!

Enjoyed our stay.

3.4 on July 09, 2017

We spent 6 nights at the Inn to have a pleasant place to stay while visiting our son and grandson. This was our second stay, but will be our last, as our son has moved out of Fairfield. There is no onsite dining, but I can't get the negative score to go away. Sorry


This hotel could be so much more.

3.0 on May 31, 2017

We have stayed at the IAFB quite a few times as it is very near our beach house and each time I stay there I feel like there are so many missed opportunities that could make if an outstanding accommodation. The rooms are comfortable, but awkwardly set up and furnished. At night with the blinds closed, the room is as bright as it is during the day. Breakfast consisting of a sweet muffin, juice and coffee, does not qualify as a nourishing breakfast. For us, the convenience outweighs the cost in this case. We were for the most part very comfortable.


Stopover Visit on the Way Home from Japan

4.2 on February 02, 2017

This was my second visit to the Inn. It is a wonderful place with a fantastic location. My only reason for a low rating on on site dining is that we have never used the nearby restaurant. We had a late flight into JFK and they allowed our daughter who lives nearby to pick up the key. The staff is friendly and professional. The outside of the Inn was still decorated for Christmas and sent out such a welcoming message. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone needing a home away from home in that area.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you return again soon!
