Nice clean hotel with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed a wonderful complementary breakfast and there was someone there constantly refilling everything. Bonnie and the night shift and Ashley on the morning shift were great. We would stay here again. Close to beaches but out of the crowds.

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. The breakfast was also a plus. The lady who fixed the breakfast kept it full... More

We were greeted well by the lady at the desk and stayed in a ground floor room on the front of the hotel. It's not far from Eglin AFB, so noise is expected. The noise really isn't bad. The room is well laid out and very clean. It had a fridge and microwave. The room is small. Breakfast is good... More

Excellent overall is all I can say. From stepping up to the check in counter, to departure 2 days later, we were completely satisfied. The GM, Patti-Jean Demski was fabulous, very accommodating to our needs and additional requests. The following day I met the Guest Service Manager Tanisha Vidales, she was another exceptional associate who was very knowledgable of the... More

I was pleased with the front desk staff and overall hotel stay. I did find hair in tub upon checking into my room. The housekeeping staff needs to pay more attention to notes of request that guest may leave for them. Breakfast variety could be better. Overall i was satisfied and would stay at this hotel again.

Hotel is in a good area, very handy for those visiting Eglin. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Anyone who likes to go to bed early or has young children should ask for rooms at the front of the hotel. There is a pub at the back of the hotel, very handy after a long day's work, and it has live... More

Five stars compared to other hotels in the "Value" segment. Had no idea what to expect. Area was booked fairly solid. Normally I stay in Courtyards or Marriott . This Fairfield received a very nice renovation recently. Lobby was nice. Staff was very pleasant, friendly, helpful and efficient. Room was excellent!! Better than most Courtyards and full service Marriott's that... More

If you are OK with not being right on the beach, this is a great place to stay! Although the hotel is not in the "tourist area", it's within just a few minutes drive from the beach and shopping with quick and easy access to both. The rooms and facilities are very clean and up to date and the staff... More

First time staying in Destin area, hotel was priced well and worth the 20 minute drive to Desin to save about $50 per night from Destin area hotels. Hotel was clean and staff very welcoming. I'm a rewards member and this Fairfield is as nice any I've stayed at. Pool and hot tube were clean.
