This is hotel is spotless and comfortable. Amy at the Front Desk is the epitome of customer service; polite, friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was delicious with some of the best coffee ever.

The hotel met or exceeded my expectations in all areas, and I'm PICKY! :) The hotel was recommended to me as I was driving, and just hours out. I called in and spoke to Wayne who was extremely pleasant. The next morning at breakfast, the kitchen staff were busy ensuring we all had what we needed and the area stayed... More

I was very comfortable in my week long stay at the Fairfield which put me minutes from the Eglin West gate. The bed slept very well. I was given a suite and the extra room was useful (a love seat on which to relax and watch TV). The shower was always hot enough and strong enough for me. The front... More

Title says it all. Eglin AFB west and TAC gates are just a few minutes away. Air Force Armament Museum is close, too. Beaches are close but far enough to not be in "tourist rate" range. There is plenty of dining/shopping within a 5 to 10 min. drive. Hotel is on a State Highway so access is not a problem... More

We stayed at this hotel to be relatively close to Destin, FL, we discovered it was about 20 minutes away with traffic; not that convenient but we made it work. The hotel is beautifully landscaped and very clean inside and outside. The hotel staff was very friendly and courteous; they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed.... More

This is a very nice and clean hotel ,enjoyed my stay there. The person that made our stay special was Maxine,the breakfast manager. She was always so kind to us and took the time to tell us about the area, and about the armament museum. She is a very important asset in this hotel!

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

The GM, Patti-Jean Demski was fabulous, very accommodating to our needs and additional requests.
