I stayed at this property several years ago and found it very nice. This time when I stayed in a suite, again, I found it in need of renovation especially the bathroom. For the price the bathroom had obvious wear signs in the tile on the shower floor and the fact it had a rusted drain in the middle of... More

We've stayed at this hotel several times and have always been pleased. This time we had a little problem with the room. We didn't get the type of room we had requested despite being Marriott Rewards members and having our room type information in our profile. The desk clerk never cracked a smile during the entire check-in process. When we... More

Front desk experience was pleasant, room was squeaky clean, overall a very good experience. Only negative was that the lid on the toilet tank had to be offset in order for the lid to stay up (I'm a guy).

Clean, well kept. Comfortable room. Good service and breakfast. Has the consistent value expected of a Marriott Fairfield. Since Marriott has gone to mostly franchise properties, we don't always find this consistency but this hotel can be counted on for the historic quality of a Marriott property.

The hotel grounds and lobby are well-maintained and inviting. After a smooth check-in, we were happy to find our room clean, spacious, and complete with refrigerator and microwave. The beds are a little on the soft side, but o.k. for a short stay. There are a couple pillow type choices, so everyone was comfortable. Bed linens aren't too heavy like... More

Front desk clerk was extremely unfriendly. No acknowledgement I was Marriott Rewards member. Basically ignored us when we asked about nearby restaurants. No wonder she doesn't wear her name tag. Had to ask her, Stephanie.

I have been staying at this hotel for the last several months not by choice. While the facility is excellent I am only giving it 3 stars because of the atrociously slow wifi connections that this hotel provides between 5pm and midnight. Even as a Marriott Platinum member, which gives me access to their faster connection, taking 1-2 minutes to... More

Reasonably new and well-maintained facility. Very helpful staff. Decent breakfast in the morning with the usual fare, including my favorite of hard-boiled eggs. The noise for the next-door Interstate highways can be a little challenging if you are a lighter sleeper. Easy to find at a good location for traveling as you crossing the nation on I-70.

Our room was very clean. Nice bedding and super comfortable mattress. The staff, not overly friendly. But the rates were very reasonable. The hotel is close to restaurants and shopping. Our room was quiet and spotless. The location is a bit tricky to find if your new to the area. We will stay there again, for sure.

This place is similar to other Fairfield Inns with a few exceptions. 1) The little dog treats - not sure if that was just because it was Thanksgiving time or if they always do that 2) Plastic plates and silverware - not bad, better than styrofoam plates, but would be better to go even more green and use real plates...
