“Great value and new”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

My family was looking for a place to find 6 rooms in Exeter that were not expensive. We found it in the Fairfield and then were VERY happy with everything else. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The lobby had a nice fireplace and sitting area to enjoy when not in your room. We noticed there was a pool area and gym that many people were enjoying. Then the breakfast was one of the best free hotel breakfasts I have had. Hot eggs, sausages,waffles, fruit, and all the other typical breakfast foods and enough tables to sit at. There was also a very helpful lady overseeing the breakfast to make sure you had everything you needed.
The people at the front desk were very accommodating when I asked to put us as close together as possible. Considering it was the beginning of school vacation week I feel we were well taken care of. I would stay there again if looking for a place in Exeter.

This is a new property in a good location, less than a mile off highway 101. Lobby very nicely decorated, small indoor pool off the lobby. I was impressed with the friendly desk clerks.
When we got to the room, I was not impressed. Decor is so-so. Coffee & small fridge in the room and white linens were nice, beds were comfy and the room was spotless.
The room was ridiculously noisy. Not just the hallway but we could hear every movement from the room above us and outside the hotel (was that a train?)

My family and I spent a night here for my daughters cheerleading competition at UNH on Jan 10. The hotel is on the small side, but was more than enough. Rooms were clean and breakfast was warm. The staff was very welcoming, from the front desk to house keeping to the kitchen.

This is a pleasant hotel in a strip mall on a street that runs North form downtown Exeter. Everything was very pleasant and accommodating. I recommend the facility and would return again when visiting Exeter, NH.

The only complaint was the sign for the hotel that was out front. The light inside the sign was mostly out making it hard to read. Arriving in our personal auto on a rainy, dark early evening, it was hard to differentiate the hotel (with its poorly-lit street sign) from the business on either side of it. The hotel's lot frontage is pretty short, so we almost overshot the driveway leading into the hotel.

The team at the Exeter Fairfield Inn are simply a pleasure to deal with, warm, welcoming, always willing to go the extra mile. It's like staying with family, just waiting for home baked cookies to appear. It's been my pleasure to refer several friends to the Fairfield, and all have had nothing but good things to share about their experiences there.

We were glad we made a reservation at the Exeter Fairfield Inn. Because of bad driving conditions we didn't want to drive back to Maine. We were upgraded to a room that had a separate cozy area, with a couch, chair and TV. This was great for watching the Patriots Game. The breakfast in the morning was great. The staff were all pleasant and helpful.

My mother and I stayed here for 3 nights week before last. The hotel was extremely clean and well decorated. The staff was very friendly and it definitely like a family atmosphere. They were preparing for the annual Christmas parade and had made a fantastic float for it! It was very quiet too!

The breakfasts were good and they had the waffles on the weekend. If you're in to chocolate there's a Lindt store a block away.

There's also a heated indoor pool and a nice fitness room.
