While this area of Florida has a lot of tourist beach goers, this is a Business hotel. It is at a quite location. Good and responsive Staff. Reliable breakfast bar with a cold to hot sets of options. A suite will add a couch and second TV.

The hotel is 10 minutes to the airport and super clean. The staff is excellent and very helpful. The room was perfect for a short stay and the hotel is about 15 minutes to the beach. Breakfast was buffet style and everything about breakfast was good. If you're visiting the air force base, this is a perfect hotel.

Stayed here before my 6AM flight out of VPS. This hotel was everything you saw in the pictures. The staff was very friendly and greeted us as we left and returned. The rooms were very clean; I felt very comfortable staying there. The beds were very comfortable...not to soft or to firm...but just right.

Spent one night while in town for a funeral. Check in was and easy was quick. The front desk staff were very good. My room was pleasant, clean and fresh. I stay loyal to the Marriott brand for this reason. You know what to expect. The morning breakfast was Spartan but sufficient to get the day started.

As Marriotts rewards members, we say at many Marriott hotels and my husband and I both agree that this is the worst stay we have had at a Marriott brand hotel. I'm not sure if Fairfield is the lowest category, but it sure felt like it. There were no upgrades available when we arrived, which was fine, but our room... More

This was our second time staying here. Checkin was easy and checkout was easier. Great friendly staff, not too far from near by beaches and shopping. Clean and quiet rooms. Can't wait until next year!

Stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel was pretty clean, staff could have been friendlier, but beware upon check in, they "authorize" your card for entire stay amount. Plan for that, most hotel chains do not do that and we've stayed in plenty of different chain hotels. Breakfast was horrible! Only ate it once., ate out the other mornings. So, hoping... More
