Hotel was very quiet. The attendants were nice. Breakfast was delicious and on time. Location was convenient because of the nearby restaurant. Overall a really nice stay and I will be recommending it to my friends.

I paid $80 for one night. It was a $40/night motel. Hallway smelled of cigarette smoke. Clerk told me they had a full breakfast but it fell far short of continental breakfast. Egg patties were swimming in water. Sausage was super greasy. Waggle were frozen. And in the room ... heat was basically two settings: hot or off. I had... More

My husband & I stayed here last week. When we got in the room, it was freezing. We turned on the heat but it didn't blow out warm. We waited to see if it would warm up...nope. Called the desk to tell them & to ask for another blanket. The 'attendent' (owner?) came to the room, gave us a blanket... More

Hi, sorry to hear about this. 1. That day, the heater was good, we came into the room and your husband agreed that it was working properly, that's why we never gave you a different room. 2. In the morning, when you checked in the manager told you about two bed room, but you just needed one bed room, but... More

My husband is from Fairfield, Illinois, and our family comes here often for various family gatherings. When first built, the Briarwood Inn was a much needed and much welcomed alternative to the only other hotel in this town which had become an eyesore and unfriendly dump due to constant ownership changes and lack of care. Sadly, I see the Briarwood... More

"Under new ownership" has not improved the Briarwood Inn. Prices have gone up; access to the computer and number of breakfast items has gone down. In the past, at least the desk staff were welcoming and very helpful.. The desk is seldom staffed and, well, let's just stay friendliness isn't readily available.

We have been coming to Fairfield every labor day weekend for a family reunion for over 20 years. We make reservations the each year for the next year. This year. They were overbooked. Reservation didn't matter. It is first come first serve.

I made this trip on very short notice. The staff was able to fit me in and added an extra night when I needed it. I did not have to change rooms. The Inn is under new management and I think they are doing well. Everyone was very friendly.
