She was great to work with and helped me through the whole process. My guests all enjoyed their stay - as the rooms were nice, staff was...

This hotel was the highlight of our trip to Martha's Vineyard. After a bad night on the island in a misrepresented motel, we arrived back on the ferry, soaking wet from rain. we had reservations at The Fairfield Inn across the street and it turned out to be a GREAT hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property...

Recently stayed here for 2 days on our way to Vermont. Great location on the city harbor and within walking distance to historic downtown. Clean and new hotel with comfortable beds and great service at front desk. Breakfast was wonderful and very plentiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating in the breakfast area. We would definitely consider staying there...

Great hotel and wonderful service. Two amazing seafood restaurants right across the street. Only minutes to Fairhaven, Boston, or Fall River. If you like boats and a fishing harbor ambience, you will love this hotel.

We enjoyed watching the activity over at the commercial fishing docks from our room. The staff was outstanding answering all questions about the immediate area. It is easy to walk uptown for meals. For those interested, there are geocaches within walking distance.

My wife and I stayed here a night for a nearby wedding. At first we were worried because the wedding started at 4PM and that was the check-in time. Fortunately we called ahead and they were accommodating enough to give us a 1PM check-in but in a downgraded room. The room itself was still large, clean, and had a nice...

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.
