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

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 .

Stayed 5 nights at this location and it was a very nice stay. With a renovated lobby and rooms the price was right. The usual FREE breakfast WIFI and health amenities were also available. If I were in this location again I would stay here. From checkin to checkout everything was Marriott quality and the customer service representatives were friendly.... More

The staff at this hotel are outstanding. The front desk clerks were very helpful. The breakfast food was good. The hotel is located right near the interstate. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable.
