We ended up HAVING to stay here because of the huge soccer match going on. I stay at Fairfield Inns pretty often for work, but I gotta say this one was especially bad. Most of the time there's at least a wall in between the sink and bedroom, but nope, sink right in the bedroom. Everything just seemed old (however... More

On this College Tour stop, the location was convenient to shopping, dining and to get to campus for the college tour. Employees were friendly and helpful. It appears the facility does need some improvements, but for the price worked for us. Facility was clean just in need of some upgrades. Breakfast was also good way to begin the day -... More

We did an overnight here during the Ann Arbor Art Festival and was completely disappointed with the hotel. The room was musty smelling, dated and small; TV did not work as the HD channels kept pixilating and freezing; the walls were paper thin and the beds were far from comfortable. I am a Marriott Silver member and had I known... More

I think my issue is more with Fairfield inn in general rather than this specific hotel. I just don't love them. I have to remember it is a more "budget" chain, but it's not like the rooms are cheap. Like others, the hotel was a stopping point to visit U of Michigan. Arrived late and left early, so didn't experience... More

We were visiting the University of Michigan, and this was very convenient to campus. There is also a shopping center near by. Super friendly and helpful employees. Check out the huge map in the lobby. it helps you to get your bearings, and includes recommendations for eating in the area.

This was a considerable let down. The room was not clean at all, me and my husband are retired and frequent hotels all over the state and this one bar far was one of the worst,. Location was fine, Breakfast was ok but we would have traded those to things for a clean room. Unless you plan on sleeping in... More

Tucked away is this nice hotel. Compared to the pricey hotels in Ann Arbor this one is more reasonable for the area. The location itself, even though, you might not be able to find the hotel at first, is great to a number of amenities in the area. The indoor pool is great, however, since it is right off of... More

I stayed here last week for one night on business on my way to Grand Rapids. I got in around 9pm and left early in the morning. Good: Great rate, especially when only here for a few hours. Close to lots of restaurants, gas stations, and points of interest. Downtown Ann Arbor and the UM campus is minutes from here.... More

In town for a reunion, the Fairfield was one of the "recommended" hotels for our group. I shared the room with a girl friend, and it was sufficient for our brief two-night stay. The hotel's age shows in the worn carpets, slow elevator with cracked floors, no-personality lobby, and well-used keycard locks on room doors. But the hotel is kept... More
