Pros: Location, price, staff, food and the historic background of the Inn.
Cons: The food was excellent but the portions far too large. We gained wait after only staying one night.
Location: See above.
Had a wonderful time. John, the owner was delightful and his entire staff was wonderful. The Inn was convenient to our next stop(Sharpsburg) and our previous stop(Gettysburg). The food was great and the Chef, Terry, provided personal service to all guests. Any minor problems(few) we handled quickly and efficiently.

First impressions are keyPosted May 21, 2015 on Hotels
Initial greeting was terse and unfriendly. In a confirmation email, check-in time was listed as 12-2 on Sundays. When I responded to the email, I informed "Ashley" that I'd arrive between 12-2. Upon my arrival at approximately 12:30, another woman opened the door and rudely told me I was "early" and they "weren't expecting me so early." Although the remainder of my stay was adequate, that first impression of the establishment makes it a difficult recommendation or choice for future stays.

Great Staff and Lots of CharacterPosted Dec 12, 2014 on Hotels
My wife and I were taking a trip to Gettysburg and she booked this B&B as I like older buildings with character and this did not disappoint. The Fairfield is the second longest continuously operating Inn in the country. It was build in the 1700s and has many very neat/interesting features - huge fireplaces in the common areas; original woodworking and floors that show their age in wear and lack of levelness. I will caution, those who like clean lines and fresh paint will be disappointed - if you like new, this place isn't for you. Staff was exceptionally friendly and made sure we were comfortable/well cared for. The Inn is located in a very small town about 15 mins from Gettysburg. There isn't a lot to do in the town of Fairfield, but there is quite a bit to do in Gettysburg. Overall a nice little slice of history with a charming staff.

A hidden gem near GettysburgPosted Sep 21, 2014 on Hotels
This was our first experience at a B&B and weren't really sure what to expect. When we arrived it felt like we came to visit family. The entire staff went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel at home. The food is incredible and the portions generous. We visit Gettysburg to hike the battlefield and learn more about the history. The Fairfield Inn is immersed in the history of the area and is very close to East Cavalry field. This will be our destination point going forward.

Great historic bed & breakfastPosted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: Great food, friendly staff
Location: Not in Gettysburg but close (within minutes), wineries, great restaurants
Nice, friendly staff, comfortable room, large bathroom. You are staying in a part of history. Delicious food available at convenient times. They even upgraded our room because a better room was available. We only returned home yesterday and I have already recommend the fairfield inn twice! If we get a chance to return to the area without our young children, we would definitely stay there again.

Excellent B&B with Great HistoryPosted Jul 23, 2013 on Hotels
Originally built in 1757, I loved the history in this old inn. You do have to keep the age of the structure in mind to set expectations, but the rooms were nice. I stayed in the "Major Starr" room on the top floor. The room was nicely appointed with period furniture and included an in-room private bathroom with good water pressure. The window AC unit struggled to keep up with the 95+ degree heat wave we were experiencing during the day but the room was quite comfortable in the evenings and mornings. Food was basic but good with excellent home made pies for dessert and a robust breakfast in the morning. I will return to this inn with my family in the future.

Do not reccomendPosted Jan 8, 2013 on Hotels
I bought this as a gift for my parents. After the first night, they just went home. There were big holes in the floor, and the only privacy in the bathroom were sheers over the windows. In the evening, the hotel attendents left and they were the only 2 people in the whole place.

Não tinha ninguem para nos receber!!!Posted Oct 31, 2012 on Hotels
Chegamos as 10pm e não tinha ninguem para nos receber. Um hospede abriu a porta e entrou em contato com um gerente que, depois de 20 minutos, veio nos entregar a chave do quarto. O melhor do hotel foi o contato com o hospede.

Enjoyed the people at the inn, excellent breakfast, dinner was above average, but would not recommend the dinner theatre for adults.
