Haven't stayed at a Fairfield in a while, but we were in town on a college visit and chose here. It was a great choice, and if the kid chooses here, this will be our stay of choice! The room was as expected and very clean and in good condition. The beds were also comfortable and room location was great... More

We arrived late and left early the next morning, so we didn't do much other than sleep and eat breakfast. Breakfast was OK; I've definitely had better. As far as Fairfield Inns go, this one is probably about average. I paid $109 for the night, which seems a little pricey considering the age, cleanliness, and decor, but the Hampton Inn... More

The bed was very comfortable - I slept well. The staff were outstanding - very friendly and welcoming and able to help out. The rooms and bathrooms... More

Great hotel that we stay at when visiting our ISU student. Have stayed here several times over the past 18 months. Rooms are clean and quiet. Decor is new as are the room appointments. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good though that area can be busy at certain times of the morning. The hotel is only a few... More

Stayed one night with family. Hotel is absolutely beautiful, super clean. Staff was out-of-their-way friendly. Wonderfully soft beds; big tub/shower with high, adjustable shower head. Breakfast was filled with options (hard boiled & scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, waffles, muffins, breads/bagles, fruits, cereals, yogurt, juices, etc). Yes, it was a bit pricier, but well worth it. Should the need arise again,... More

Our stay for 1 week for business was good in this hotel; clean comfortable rooms, excellent wifi, average breakfast though nice choice for coffee in the morning: all in all a very pleasant comfortable stay.

I can't believe this hotel is so far down the list on TA. I came into town for business and usually stay at HI or HIE but there was something going on in town and there rates had more than doubled. That's just nuts. I seen the Fairfield and thought what the heck I'll give them a try. To my... More

Have only stayed there once for business but slept wonderfully. The beds are a little high off the ground, but once I made it, the sleep was excellent. Everything was clean and well maintained. The people were helpful, but not intrusive. Breakfast is your typical Fairfield. Not much nearby, but the local strip of restaurants is only the next exit... More

We stayed one night while going to a football game. Room was very nice , great shower head. Didn't take advantage of other amenities though. Would stay again on our next trip through. Good location off the interstate .
