Typical Fairfield Inn. Decor is a little old but bed was comfortable. Room is a pretty good size. There is a pool but no gym. They do have an agreement with a local YMCA, but that is 2 miles away from the hotel.

Just a quick stop over for me, used points so I can't speak to value, but the room was clean and quiet so I can't complain. Carpeting was getting a little threadbare, but other than that, I can't see much wrong with it. Liked that they had a water cooler at the front door so I could fill up my... More

My family has stayed at this location a number of times over the years for tumbling meets. The people are great and really no complaints except this property is in dire need of an upgrade, which is why I gave it 3 stars. I hope it is on Marriotts list to get this done. Price and people make it worth... More

The Fairfield Inn was a typical Marriott property. It was clean as usual and the staff was very nice. The manager comped us extra points when the heating system malfunctioned. The room was very clean and the bathroom was, as well. The only complaint I would have about the room was the bed. The mattress was soft on the sides... More

The hotel is right of I80, easy to find, no frills, good, clean rooms, great staff and reasonable rates. This property has a nice small pool and hot tub, the rooms are quiet, clean and very comfy. Good place to spend 1 or 2 nights!

The people that work at this hotel are the best. They really will go out of their way to make sure you have a comfortable stay. The hotel itself is very clean and quiet, comfy too. Everyone there makes you feel right at home.

This was a good, brief stay. First, after many hours on the road, on a cold, wintry (but Fall) evening, what a surprise to walk into this hotel and find complimentary soup - two options if you please! - and hot chocolate! WOW!

What hotel does not have a workout facility? This one! The ammenities here were average, but for the price, I was disappointed. The TownePlace Suites next door is a much better choice for the money, unfortunately it wasn't available during the dates I travelled. The rooms were clean but the AC did not cool the room to desired temperature and... More

Above average Fairfield Inn. Comfortable beds and quite location. Friendly staff but had trouble finding anyone staffing the front desk in the afternoon. Maybe just short staffed during our stay. Overall a comfortable hotel.
