    Clean, well decorated with a professional and polite staff. The restaurant on premises is outstanding. This is the standard by which all other Best Westerns should be judged.....and which all the other Best Westerns should aspire to.

    « Very nice hotel »

    I stayed at this hotel for my 50th high school reunion. The rooms are large and clean and the staff is very accommodating. The breakfast was plentiful. My only complaint was that the hotel van failed to pick me up after I got off of the bus from Port Authority. They said they sent someone out but he didn't see me. It was impossible to miss me considering I was the only person standing on the side of Rte. 46 right next to the ramp

    Excellent quality Hotel. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Stayed for high school reunion and was very impressed even though I normally stay at more expensive hotels. Can't beat this Hotel for price and value.

    « Very nice property »

    Very impressed with the BW Plus Executive Inn in Fairfield. The rooms were large and comfortable, staff were all very pleasant and professional. There is a very nice Italian restaurant located in the hotel that was good as well. This will definitely be my hotel of choice when back in this area.

    « Excellent Staff; Clean hotel »

    Utilized 25 rooms for a wedding block. The staff at this hotel is excellent. From the sales person who organized our room block and complimentary shuttle buses, to the front desk staff, housekeeping staff, breakfast staff and bartenders in the lounge ... they have all been well-trained to deal with guests. The furniture in the room is a bit heavy and dark but is in very good condition; the room are clean, the beds are very comfortable. We were very satisfied with using this hotel for ourselves and our wedding guests.

    « Didn't sleep, but had a great breakfast »

    The hotel was clean. They provided extra supplies that I appreciate... Qtips, make up remover, etc. Unfortunately, the mattress was hard, pillows were plentiful but lumpy, and the room refrigerator was noisy... Combined, these made it hard to sleep even after an exhausting day of touring. Breakfast was exceptional. Omlet bar, Waffle maker, plus all the traditional offerings... Fruit, pastries, oatmeal, etc.

    « A holiday weekend »

    The reason i say special is because the staff and service at this hotel was top of the line, and reason for my four star rating Actually the staff deserves 5 stars . I would say the hotel is three star Because it was somewhat dated but kept up well and clean and from what we read will be renovating very shortly. A very good included breakfast came w ur stay. Can't say enough about the hotel and restaurant staff especially Leda at the front desk and Luli Zaku, assistant general manager and Judy who made our omelettes at breakfast . Thank you all for making it special for our family

    « Good Stay »

    I stayed here six nights while in town on business. Overall, the hotel is a nice hotel for business and family travelers alike. My only complaint is that amenities are hard to come by. Coffee in the lobby costs money. I also found the room to be outdated, although very clean. The housekeeping staff were friendly, and courteous, but often took well into the day to clean my room. However, I would consider staying here again on a return trip.

    clean, comfortable...staff is friendly and helpful.. and i think this place has 4 floors.. we had to leave early, but i do remember smelling a nice hot breakfast as i was coming down the elevator. Bed was comfortable.. the usualy micro, frig, tv, etc... my only complaint. and this is with 99% of the hotels i have stayed at.. i have seen in in only ONE hotel so far. a little device the reroutes the air/heat so it doesnt blow directly into the curtains... yes yes. leave the curtains open. but only if i want anyone outside or santa claus to see me naked..., dont want him to go blind and fall out of his sleigh.

    I stayed one night in a king room and it was very pleasant. The hotel was very clean, the staff was ok and the restaurant and breakfast fantastic. My only complaint was how hot the room was and the air conditioner did not seem to cool it sufficiently. Great location, convenient to the mall, shopping and restaurants.

    « Perfect Location When Visiting New York City »

    I am a Travel Agent who escorts New York City Bus Trips. The Best Western Plus Executive Inn is my go to for every group I take to NYC. The location is perfect! The service, quality and value is fantastic! My clients are pleased every single time we visit. The Hotel offers a very nice restaurant and lounge as well as a delicious complimentary breakfast with an omelette station. Not your typical Continental Breakfast, but so much more! The free shuttle service to area attractions is such a nice bonus as there are so many wonderful places to dine and shop within the area. The staff is second to none! They are helpful and service is prompt. For me and my groups, there simply isn't a reason to look elsewhere when traveling through this area. We will be back soon and look forward to our next stay! Thank you Best Western Fairfield for all you do to keep my clients happy!

    « Great Place to Stay. Clean, Comfortable and Quiet »

    This is a great hotel. The rooms are big, very clean and they have an excellent breakfast buffet. It's in a great location if planning to visit NYC, the bus comes just footsteps from the hotel. The staff is very friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel over any other in this area! This hotel also has an excellent restaurant on location.

    « Good place in a quiet area! »

    Staff were friendly and informative. The room was nice although the drier didn't work. I literally had to hold the on button to dry my hair which was annoying but it did its job. Complimentary breakfast was good, not much variety but the cook can make you eggs or omelette which was the best part of the breakfast. Overall the place was good. I would come back

    « Great service, room & food for the price »

    Friendly and quick check-in & out. Restaurant appearance and seating is okay but the food is excellent. Very generous complimentary breakfast. Switched our original room-very accommodating. Also stayed in July for a high school reunion and the front desk helped us cancel our reservation through an online booking company and gave us the group HS reunion price which was 1/2 the price of hotels.com

    « Great value for your money »

    Great clean room with comfortable bed. Full breakfast with omelette stations and waffles. Friendly staff. Nice lobby and free shuttle to event location. The lobby was ample and appealing. Very clean! Convenient location on Rt 46.

    « Needs refreshing »

    The hotel has its positives and negatives. The positives include adequate handicap parking, an attractive lobby, restaurant and bar, excellent meeting facilities, and an outstanding employee staff. The free breakfast was outstanding, The negatives ave to do with the room and furnishings, which both needed refreshing. The beds were uncomfortable, the armchair was worn out, and the bathroom was not ADA compliant.

    Hotel was a great experience. One night stay for a family wedding. Very accommodating, great service, pleasant staff. Rooms were very nice and beds were very comfortable. Extra pillow and blanket in room were very helpful. Location was convenient and size of hotel was perfect. Bar and restaurant were great to have in the hotel. Next morning breakfast was delicious. Fresh omelettes/eggs made to serve right in front of you.. that was awesome! Overall great experience!

    « Lodging with wonderful Italian restaurant »

    Above average lodging just west of Willowbrook Mall with an attached excellent Italian American restaurant. It handled 2 weddings & my HS reunion simulanteously without any apparent issues. Very comfortable hotel lobby. Only issue I came across was the treadmill in their fitness room was not operational.

    Excellent rooms, easy location, friendly staff. Very nice restaurant, but a bit expensive, attached to the hotel. The hotel lounge was very nice and the staff there was very friendly and attentive. Bed was clean and comfortable, not too fond of the satellite cable provider with only limited channels. Overall a much nicer stay then some of the reviews had indicated.

    « Best Bed Away From Home »

    Our experience here will bring us back. The staff was courteous, respectful and professional. The room was comfortable. Best bed away from home in ages. The restaurant, Cucina Calandra, seduced us with the flavors of Italy so much that we ate there all 3 nights. Next to a busy road, so bring earplugs for a restful night's sleep. I have to nitpick to find fault.

    « Wonderful hotel »

    The Best Western Executive Inn in Fairfield,NJ, is somewhat away from a downtown location, but believe me,thisis a far better place to stay whether on business of as a tourist to NYC or Newark. It's just magnificent and the staff are treasures. The bar and restaurant are both first class, and if you want to swim of push weights that's there too. Highly recommended.

    The front desk service is excellent. However, the service in the Restaurant and Lounge leave a lot to be desired. Grumpy staff and it appeared they hated their jobs. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and it is quiet in the halls. Excellent pastry and breads that are all made at their bakery next door. Worth a trip to that bakery. Yum!

    « Very good »

    The hotel stay was very good except for the (false)fire alarm that went off for almost 20 minutes. The fitness center is okay, but it was very HOT in there. There was a small AC wall unit powering the room which was clearly. It big enough for the room itself.

    « Diamond Status means nothing »

    Staff at check said they were oversold and didn't think they would have a room for me. When I asked about my best western rewards welcome gift for Diamond members the person at the desk said "I don't even know what those levels mean." Not the best impression to give your top clientelle.

    « Great Place to stay »

    I've been here in the past, and they seem to be keeping the place up nicely with upgrades and such. It was clean, comfortable, and had more than I needed. It is a great place for out of town wedding guests to stay and have access to the shuttle for reception transportation.

    2
    « Not worth the price »

    Internet did not work in rooms. Room amenities were poor quality. Not worth the price, which was not cheap. Night staff was exceedingly unhelpful. Recreational drug use was obvious at night...despite "no smoking" signs. Very loud at night, although security guards were ultimately deployed to calm the situation down. Gym was outdated but okay for a small hotel. Breakfast was excellent. Restaurant salmon was excellent.

    « Nice hotel, I'd stay there again »

    Hotel was nice. Very clean, very professional and friendly staff. The room felt slightly damp all the time, but it may have been that it was so hot and the A/C had to be on all the time. When we left the room with the A/C turned down, there was a stale smell in our room till the a/c cleared it up. Not bad, just would have been nice if it hadn't been there. We had dinner at the bar - we ordered 4 items, 2 were excellent and deliicious, 2 were good, but nothing special. Breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. I can't imagine what a "full" b'fast would have been as this expanded continental one had everything you could want - omlettes with a variety of things to choose to put in, oatmeal with choice of toppings, yogurt, myo waffles, bread for toast, danish, donuts, muffins, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, tea, and it all was great! All staff was very nice. Would stay here again.

    I have stayed at this hotel twice and is was very good both times. The rooms are large and clean. There is also a bar and a restaurant at this hotel that are very good.

    « Really a great choice »

    I stayed a mile away the nite before at the Hampton Inn, my regular brand. I was surprised to feel that this BW was as good, no better than the Hampton Inn. The lobby was unespected and for a BW and very nice. Everything else was quite good. Breakfast included a hand made omelet, instead of the regular scrambled eggs. I like Hampton Inn, but would return to this BW again.

    « Unhappy Guest »

    We had 3 rooms here and they all had cleanliness issues. From dirty, stained sheets, dirty bathrooms and towels with other people's hair on it, I do not recommend staying here. And to top it off they have safety issues as well. A relative was stuck in the elevator and their staff was not trained properly to know how to get the door opened. Luckily my husband is a firefighter and when we returned from our wedding he was able to get her out.

    The hallway is a bit long and some rooms are far from the elevator but overall it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great - made to order omelets..But our room had a weird banging/clanging noise from the ducts I think that was very disturbing at night.

    Staff extremely welcoming and friendly. Manager Steve went above and beyond to accommodate our late request to be on shuttle to venue. Complimentary breakfast was perfect. Omelette station and make your own waffles. We even left a makeup mirror in room and housekeeping found and turned it in to lost and found! Would definitely return again and highly recommend to others. Thank you so much.

    « Lovely surprise! »

    Booked this hotel rather last-minute. Chose it above others in category because the price was $10 cheaper per night. Can't imagine the experience was worth any less, however. Check-in was a breeze. Arrived just after a big group and worried it would take awhile to be helped. Was totally wrong. A second reception desk attendant immediately waved us over to help us. Room was ample and was clean. What's more, it included helpful touches, not only including wall-mounted hairdryer, but even cotton swabs (wish more hotels did that!). Rate includes beautiful breakfast in hotel restaurant. Delicious fare, including made-to-order omelette station, in nice surroundings. (They'd do well to add brown sugar to the buffet for the oatmeal, though that's being rather picky of me.) Before checking out of our room, we checked out the facilities for next time and found a small gym and a very nice indoor pool! Check-out was simple: a bill was delivered in an envelope to our room the night before we checked out; assuming we agreed with it, all we had to do was keep the bill for our records, sign the (now empty) envelope and drop it in a basket at the reception desk. Seriously, it could hardly have been easier! Overall, very nice environment that felt as well suited to groups, conferences, etc., as to families. Standard location along a fairly major road, not far from mall, restaurants, etc., but hotel had beautiful plantings out front that made it feel less impersonal. Nice touches all around!

    When I arrive at this hotel, I'm always warmly greeted at the front desk. They do give me a corporate rate since I'm here on business. My room is very comfortable with 2 queen size beds, a nice work station, micro and refrig. I have never had a complaint. Tonight, I ordered room service and had a nice house salad with a piece of scrumptious carrot cake for dessert.

    Stayed at this hotel for a work trip and was pleasantly surprised. The staff is sweet as ever and would help you with anything you needed. Rooms were really nothing overly special but were very clean and tidied everyday which is special to me. Rooms had a desk, small refrigerator and a microwave. Beds were super comfortable and that was best part about the rooms. Breakfast in the morning is amazing, nothing short of the best waffles I have ever had. The hotel is close to a large mall and lots of chain and unique restaurants in the area as well. The indoor pool is very nice although when I stayed it seemed some guests had their own little party with a lot of people making noise and splashing. It got to be distracting and uncomfortable but after a bit the staff did come and break it up. Overall it was a great hotel for a business trip and I would imagine any trip. If I were to need a hotel again in that area I would definitely stay again.

    Unfortunately this place is just not good. The air conditioner in my room did not work despite my request that someone come to the room and fix it. As a result I barely slept either night. It was not hot outside but must have been in the high, humid 70s in my room. The hallway noise was terrible with doors slamming all night long. Parking was difficult. I will be returning to the Hampton Inn next time I'm in the area!

    « The Reviews are paid for! Place is a joke! Stay Anywhere but here! »

    So, I am not pleased, as you can tell by title of my review! I will keep it simple. The outside is modern, so is the lobby with hints of where they 'cheap-ed' out on the renovation. Check-in was unpleasant. I was told I had to present my AAA card upon check in and when I got there I was told there was no discount and I was supposed to do that online! I tried explaining this to the 20 something year old 'manager' only to be met with the "Sorry, There's nothing I can do". Anyway, I skipped over losing my 10% discount and looked forward to this "modern and up to date" room and "renovation"... When I got there I LAUGHED IN DISGUST AND DISBELIEF! The carpet was disgusting, cheap, not modern at all. It smelled, The room smelled of mold, And Don't kick on the air conditioner! There was wall paper on the walls consistent with the early 90's if not 80's. The bed sheets and linens were cheap and looked like they hadn't been updated since the 90's. The furniture was old, the bathroom was NOT renovated and had a bath fitting over the tub. It was even broken too! The hotel put a patch over the holes where the handicap bar used to be! In conclusion, Don't bother trying to get your money back either! It's futile! In the end I paid over $180+ for horrible service, a disgusting room, lies, etc. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE! STAY AWAY! There's a beautiful La Quinta, Comfort Inn, Radisson, and Marriott in the area! Going on... There breakfast in the morning is horrible! When I asked the girl making omelets to make me one, I got the nastiest look ever when I didn't put a tip in her Jar! Are you kidding me!!!! Get used to it! Tip envelope in your room for the cleaning staff, tip cups all around the bar, tip cups are the omelet station... I'd like to feel like I can pay for my stay and not feel obligated to tip everyone for basic service! Never staying at a Best Western again! Neither is my family, friends, or colleagues.

    « Super 8 quality, Hilton Price »

    I am not extremely dissatisfied with my stay at this hotel, but I'm not really satisfied either. There were several little things that weren't worth reporting to the front desk when I just wanted to sleep, but that piled up, and made my stay unenjoyable. One thing that really stood out to me was the lack of power outlets. There were absolutely no available bedside power outlets. I sleep with a CPAP machine, and the fact that I had to unplug the bedside lamps to plug it in was pretty annoying. Not to mention, in this day and age, everyone has items to charge, like cell phones and laptops. Many use their cell phones as their alarm, so It's annoying when there is no place to plug it in near the bed. The power outlets that were available were either loose fitting or bent into the wall. Finding the one outlet my phone charger didn't fall out of was a real pain after 7 hours in the car. The HVAC unit in my room was very finicky. When I arrived, the room was stupidly warm. I turned on the fan on the HVAC unit, but It turned off after a couple minutes. If I wanted to cool the room down, I had to power-cycle the unit multiple times, until it decided to blow air again. That was a pain, but not worth dealing with maintenance right before bed. My biggest gripe is with the beds. They were just plain bad. To get an idea of how these beds are, just fill a burlap sack with grapefruits and bouncy balls, and lay on that. That should give you an approximation. I woke up with one arm asleep, and a monster crick in my neck. The friend who stayed with me shifted to the floor for a bit, and said he slept better. The room was clean though, the bathroom was well laid out, there was easy access to my room from a few entrances, and there is a lot of stuff close by. It just missed entirely on the 2 or 3 things I actually want from a hotel room - Comfort, Convenience, and Sleep.

    This hotel needs a total renovation. The beds are horrible. It smells as soon as you walk in the lobby. Elevator display was out. Bathroom is extremely small, the door misses the toilet seat by inches. The shower is so small. The air conditioning unit is loud & rattles. The bed comfort is non existent, you can feel the bed springs. Restaurant attached to hotel is way over priced for the type of food they serve. My whole floor I was on smelled like a bar. the ice machine is crammed in the corner next to the washer & drier. The walls are also paper thin you can hear people in the rooms next to yours as if their in your room with you. The TV reception is horrible most channels blurry out of focus.

    I've stayed at this property a few times, largely because the price is right and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathroom is small-ish (they even have a shorter toilet so that the door can open and shut), but there is counter space around the sink. The free breakfast is OK with options that include made-to-order omelettes, fruit, waffles, pastries and cereal. On this visit, I was looking forward to some oatmeal, but the pot was nearly empty (and didn't look too good). But I survived on an omelette and fruit (fresh-cut pineapple and watermelon).

    We stayed for a wedding that was in the area. The first room we were given had an odor, we called the front desk and they promptly moved us to another room. The hotel has several floors, an indoor pool and an outdoor patio. Even though it is right on the side of the road, we did not have the problem of hearing traffic. Everything was very clean, and there were plenty of towels available for us to use in the room. The staff was very nice. There is a large breakfast buffet that is complimentary with your stay which is very nice. There are a lot of items to choose from. On a side note, they did offer shuttle service to the wedding reception that we went to. This is a huge plus for anyone looking to book a block of rooms for a wedding. I would stay again if I was in the area. I found the cheapest rate for this hotel directly through the hotel's website.

    This is an older hotel, and the facility isn't that bad, However the room is not user friendly with regards to charging receptacles. The internet is like 1980's dial up.

    « nice hotel. Breakfast is to die for. »

    We could see the hotel just on the other side of the road when driving but took us 5 minutes to reach it due to the 'no U turn' in NJ. Renovation going on at the front entrance so had to enter through the back and were told when checking in that we needed to move the car from the back entrance by 8am as they were going to put tar and repave the whole back portion of the parking area too. Hotel itself was a pleasant surprise. My family is quite particular about the cleanliness and the 'smell' etc...and we were quite happy. Room was spacious but AC was a bit noisy and tricky as kept timing out. Breakfast was just excellent. It was in the main restaurant of the Hotel and had an Omelette station, as well as 'make your own waffle' station. Excellent variety of fruits, breads, juices, etc. Checkin checout a breeze.

    We were supposed to stay at the Best Western at the airport (as we were departing from EWR the following morning) but they were fully booked so we opted to stay here. Check in staff very friendly, rooms a good size and clean. (just needed a plug next to the bed to charge phone!) Only downside (and reason for 4, not 5 stars) was our experience the bar/lounge for lunch and the food took ages to come out and we ordered soup, bruschetta & wings, which are the quickest things to cook! Food was very average and drinks very overpriced. Would return again but not eat at hotel. There is a Pizza place and Chinese take away right next to the hotel. The Chinese was delicious!

    Stayed for 2 nights with a group of 40 traveling in a motor coach. First of all this property was a mess. The main entrance was closed and the only entry was through the attached restaurant's entrance. The rooms were clean and rather large. I tend to rate a hotel by the number of outlets available to charge all my devises. This hotel had one outlet in a lamp. Nothing by the bed. You could tell this was an older property because of the height of the sink in the bathroom was very low. You couldn't even look out the window because it was covered on the outside with plastic! If you're looking for a hotel in NJ to be close to NYC you should know this is at least a 45 minute drive with good traffic.

    We probably won't have the need to spend the night in the area again--and that's a shame. This was a pretty decent place for the money. We were greeted by pleasant and professional staff; found a clean and spacious room, nice pool and hot tub, decent fitness center (with a selection of free weights--dumbbells--which is somewhat unusual) and the best included breakfast we've had in quite a while! Other reviewers have commented quite favorably on the restaurant there also, making me wish we'd had dinner there instead of stopping elsewhere before we arrived. The only negatives are related to the ongoing renovations and I suspect that it will be all in top shape when they are completed.

    « Easy highway access in an updated hotel »

    Stayed for three nights in February and we had a reasonably nice stay. The hotel is undergoing a refurbishment inside and out; this project could likely be finished by the time you stay there. The inside looks modern, bright, airy and there is a large lobby area. Our king room had been redecorated, but there were some design misses. The new TV had a small screen and sat on top of a low dresser. It would have been better had they purchased larger screen TVs and mounted them on the wall. The wall and lamp electrical sockets were old and loose and should have been replaced. It was challenging to find a socket that could adequately hold a plug. The bathroom sink and toilet seemed lower than usual. The room was quite large, but a lot of the space was wasted - just empty space. This was not a problem for us, but the space could have been put to better use, perhaps with another comfortable chair and ottoman ( there is one already). We liked having a small empty refrigerator in the room; we do not like refrigerators that are filled with a minibar. Ours had plenty of room for bottled water. The front desk staff were very nice - helpful and pleasant. The included breakfast was more than adequate. Overall, we had a nice enough stay and would consider this hotel for any future trips to the area.

    « The best thing about this hotel is the food options »

    Location is great, you can easily travel to anywhere in NJ or NYC via Rt 46, 80 or 3 from here. There is a standard mall within 2 miles, and a large Target even closer. The rooms are very clean; request a room near the pool to take a quick dip in the hot tub. The best advantage is the food choices in the immediate area. As part of the hotel, there is a fabulous restaurant named Cucina Calandra, & Calandra's Bakery which is highly regarded as one of the best in NJ. Neither will disappoint. The options do not end there, across the highway is Jose Teja's quality Tex-Mex, Nikko Japanese Sushi & Hibachi, and a Houlihans to enjoy some food, cocktails & company. Nikko is the most impressive of these choices. The atmosphere & bar is upscale, and you can be seated at a regular table or hibachi grill (sushi is superb as well). You can board a 40 minute bus ride to NYC nearby, if need be. Check NJTransit.

    PROS: Clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff, excellent free breakfast (including an omelet station and more fresh pastries than you could imagine), and a fantastic restaurant right in the hotel, which I highly recommend for dinner. CONS: Cold water in the shower (not just our room--another guest complained, as well), some room outlets didn't work, ATM out of service, outdated decor in common areas. The hotel appeared to be in the midst of a renovation, and I trust the owners will address the issues noted above. It's definitely a very pleasant stay for a business trip, and with a few tweaks, this place will be top notch.

    I recently stayed overnight at this hotel. At first, I was a little disappointed because it is undergoing some type of construction, and it seemed like I had to walk a mile to get to my room. The hallways are very very long so if you are disabled in any way you should request a room closer to the elevator. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered my room. It was large, very clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was well worth the walk LOL. I also had a cocktail in the bar. The bartender was very friendly, and could make a really good Cosmo. It was a great gathering place. The next day I enjoyed the free breakfast at the hotel's restaurant. There were many options, and the food was tasty. All in all I would recommend staying at this hotel if you need to be in Fairfield area.

    « extremely L . . O . . N . . . G hotel. »

    This an extremely L . . O . . N . . . G hotel. I swear I have been on mega cruise ships with shorter hallways. There are breaks but your eye thinks they are mirrors because you can't believe how long the hallways are. We were there for NYE. The hotel arranged a free shuttle for us to a nearby venue for the holiday where our friends' bands were playing. They always have the free shuttle within a short radius (5 miles?). You can go to the airport at Caldwell but not Newark. They had two weddings plus about 20 rooms for our friends and the people who were there for their NYE celebration but the hotel never really felt crowded, except at breakfast the next morning. I took my food & ate in the lobby. The Calandras restaurant on site makes awesome food. Try some of their house wine. The red zinfandel was mild and full of cherry flavor. I had driven by this location for 30+ years but never been inside. It was cleaner & way nicer than I expected. It was a good value if you have to be in the area but the area is pretty desolate. There is a small strip mall next door & all sorts of Malls (Willowbrook) just a few miles away. The indoor pool room was small but well appointed. I liked the Tuscan feel of the tile. The heater in the hot tub was broken, making the pool water warmer than the hot tub but the bubbles we still powerful.

    « Pleasant experience »

    Very pleased with accommodations. Decor was nice, room was very clean, bed/mattress was comfortable. Atmosphere was quiet. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Bar area was nice; oversized drinks at happy hour were a nice surprise. Continental breakfast was better than most...the omlette station was a definite plus. The room rate was reasonable. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

    We had a party at this hotel and everything was great. All our guests said the food was excellent and they had a great time. The hotel staff was very helpful especially Jodie who did everything she could to make sure the party was a success.

    « Very decent stay for the price and options »

    I stayed here for three days over Christmas with my boyfriend. It was preferable to stay at a local hotel rather than family. The Best Western has the best reviews in the area and the price was very reasonable. The rooms were clean and spacious although a tad outdated. The breakfast buffet is not extravagant or mind blowing but decent and provided enough options to appeal to every palate. Overall a decent stay with no complaints. It provides no frills but it's a comfortable stay.

    « Visited for an Italian meal with some business colleagues »

    Fantastic food, some of the best Italian food I've ever had, the portions are ridiculously big so no good if your watching your weight lol. Service was very efficient and all the meals arrived the same time.I had the stuffed egg plant starter and a chicken main meal I forget the name of it, I had no room for desert.

    « Best of the Best »

    This is definitely the Best of the Best Western Hotels I have stayed in. Breakfast was the best of any hotel nationally with pastries from a terrific bakery next door, fresh fruits, made to order omelets etc. all for free. Great selection of dishes for dinner which was available at the bar restaurant as well as the main restaurant. Happy hour & Entertainment in Bar with timely and friendly servers, good drinks. Close to shopping, sports venues and of course New York City. This is the place I stay at when visiting New Jersey & New York. Prices are reasonable & and the rooms are comfortable.

    « Best hotel accommodations in northern NJ »

    Can't say enough good things about the Best Western Executive Inn in Fairfield, NJ. In addition to the convenient location and helpful staff, the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms is top-notch. And...don't get me started on the fantastic breakfast and restaurant food. No better breakfast - no matter where you travel! Many items are from their fantastic bakery next door! For comfort, service & food--no better place to stay.

    « Clean average 3 star »

    A good hotel with clean sheets, but lacking a few high end touches. It has a pool, and a decent breakfast. Bakery items are from a good bakery next door, and they have an omelet / egg station. But things like foam plates and plastic cutlery, prevent this place from being high end. Still though, its nice for what it is.

    « Great hotel !! »

    I had on my wedding guests stay here for my wedding a few weeks ago at the GroveJust a few miles away. The staff made everything so easy from blocking off my rooms with the sales department to checking in with the front desk . We even got shuttle service, which made it even perfect so my guests didn't have to worry about drinking and driving. The breakfast was also amazing . So many different choices . I give this place and A+ all around

    This was an outstanding place to stay from check in to check out. The rate for senios was terrific for the area. The room was immpeccable and the staff from top to bottom was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was totally above and beyond with made to order omelettes, great pastries, and good fresh cut fruit.

    « Great stay as always »

    I have stayed at this property many times for both business and pleasure. Never had a bad stay or even a bad experience. My room and the property is always clean, and the bar/restaurant is always terrific. (As for the bar, you may want to ask each nght what time they close, because a few times I was disappointed to find it closed early especially on week days). Breakfast does't have the best variety, but they do have an excellent omelet station, but what they do have is always fresh and tasty.

    « Clean, Comfortable and Convenient »

    Very impressed with this hotel. Stayed for a wedding, shuttle was a great convenience, room was comfortable and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. My only issue is the outside was under construction, but once that is completed it will be even better!

    « Very Poor Air Quality »

    I would not recommend this hotel to anyone - I spent 2 hours in the hotel and could not stop coughing. As soon as I walked in the room it smelled of smoke and chemicals. We were only staying one night so I thought I could tolerate it, but we ended up going to another hotel because neither I nor my husband were able to breathe while in the room. I am writing this review a day later and my lungs have still not recovered from the 2 hours we spent in the room.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We stayed here for 9 nights while visiting our son who works in New Jersey. The hotel was excellent. Every facility available including a free shuttle bus to take us to the bus station for New York. There is a superb Italian restaurant, a bar with evening entertainment and the staff were more than helpful. Due to building work we asked to change rooms and they were very obliging. There is a pretty garden in which to sit, an indoor pool and gym and the rooms were clean and spacious.
