This is a very nice hotel; very clean; excellent staff. Very nice breakfast buffet. Heidi, who checked us in, was wonderful! So helpful and accommodating. The only downside of this hotel is that the rooms are quite small. They do not have any two-queen rooms----only two-double rooms. They are fine for 1 or 2 persons, but quite cramped with 4.... More

Very small room. The two of us kept bumping into each other while getting ready. Breakfast area poorly designed. Very limited seating. I had to stand to eat. i would probably bypass this hotel in the future.

I'm being nice here and giving this an Average rating since Trip Advisor doesn't allow 1/2 stars. Else, this would have deserved a 2.5 rating. We stayed here Friday & Saturday of the first weekend in October. The hotel is under renovation, so entire "wings" of the hotel are off limit. That made for a quieter stay and easier parking,...

The hotel is in the process of refreshing rooms. My room was okay. My biggest concern was that for a Fairfield some of the channels had terrible reception. Also, the only cups or glasses provided in the room were the disposable coffee cups. I even went to the front desk to ask for a glass for some wine…juice glass…anything but... More

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
