I stayed in a suite with my family and I enjoyed it all. No complaints. The pool isn't very big, nor the fitness room, but the stay was perfect. I definitely recommend going to the Cazadores Mexican Restaurant next door. It's the best! The picture I shared includes a view of the pond outside.

We stayed in this hotel for one night on the way to our destination. The hotel was clean in all areas. The staff were helpful and courteous. The beds were not as comfortable as I would like (pretty firm even with the pillow top). The breakfast was good. There are also several restaurants within walking distance which was convenient for...

Stayed on a Wednesday night for business during softball tournament time. Even though there were many team families there, the noise level was reasonable. The hotel was clean, the bed comfy and the breakfast had decent food. The pool was small and the fitness center was okay. However, I did not appreciate the mediocre customer service when we asked if... More

I checked in before noon without a reservation (after checking out of a nearby facility that was really bad) and got a nice room at a good rate. There are several places to eat nearby, and it was conveniently located near the event that I planned to attend. Breakfast tended to be kind of heavy - eggs, biscuits, gravy, lots... More

Wow! What a great place to stay! We were on the road for over two weeks and this place was spectacular. The staff was excellent, the rooms large, everything clean, and the breakfast very good. We stayed for four night with all the rooms being filled and everyday was a pleasant experience. We will stay here from now on. I... More

I stayed here on a Thursday night. My daughter was visiting Faith Baptist Bible College for Scholorship weekend. She was able to stay on campus, but I needed a place to stay, so since this hotel had a relationship with the college and offered a reduced rate, I stayed here. Checked in around 5:30, easy and fast. Front desk was... More

I am sorry I cut you off, that was not my intention. The desk had already informed of your concern so I was aware of the issue, and it is one I often get calls about. Again, I apologize for cutting you off during our conversation. More

Spent the night in this hotel because our usual hotel was booked with state high school athletic events. The room was very comfortable and included a fridge and microwave. Very spacious bathroom. The breakfast consisted of bagel and pastry type items. The beds were very high. I am short and had a hard time getting in and out of them.... More

Was at the Fairfield Inn in early December 2014 while in the area for business. My room was clean and very large. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room furnishings updated and very functional, the bathroom huge and well appointed. Check in was efficient, quick and easy...can't ask for anything more. Breakfast was fine with lots of healthy selections in... More
