My stay was Great, with minimal issues. I would stay again and recommend it to others. I also got a great deal thru priceline express deals(no bidding). Short drive from downtown (~8min/5miles, no traffic), near shopping center (target) and restaurants. They do not allow pets, just FYI. The business center is small, like one computer small. But the internet was... More

The first room I got was already occupied. The second room gas wet carpet. The third try worked. Room key would loose programming and I had to go back to the front desk many times to get this fixed. Breakfast was always late. Some days you did not get basic items. Staff was not friendly and always had an excuse... More

I stayed here because of the favorable reviews on Tripadvisor. This is the one time where I am not sure how they have such a high rating. The staff was friendly and there was free parking and the rate was reasonable. The hotel itself is rather tired and worn. The breakfast area was horrible...not enough room for the guests and... More

We were arriving in town from a 3 hour drive. We needed to change clothes, but were unable to check in on time because the front desk systems were down. Instead we had to change clothes at McDonalds. The front desk staff lied and said I.T. was fixing the problem. We found out the next day at checkout that I.T.... More

While visiting my son in Austin, my wife and I stayed at the Fairfield Inn. We were greeted by a friendly helpful employee who made us feel immediately welcome. She recommended a tex-mex restaurant across the street to replenish ourselves after six hours on planes. The Inn was very convenient for us being right near I35, the main artery in... More

This is the third or fourth time I've stayed at Fairfield Suites near UT. This hotel is very clean, with comfortable beds. The hot breakfast includes some of my favorites, including oatmeal and prepared fresh fruit. I will definitely be staying here again.

I was very pleasantly surprised. I booked on basis of price and location, without much of an expectation. Yet, I was thoroughly delighted! The rooms were clean, spacious and accommodating. Best of all, the desk staff was friendly, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. I will be back soon.
