We spent a night at the Fairfield on a road trip and it was a good overnight stay. The room was equipped with a mini-fridge and a small microwave and the blackout curtains were big enough that we didn't need to clip them together in the middle to keep the light from coming in. It was very convenient to the... More

Two of us stayed at this Fairfield Inn on a one-night stopover. It's very conveniently located near I-57. Front desk service is friendly and responsive. The facility and rooms are what you'd expect at this lower tier Marriott brand, but thoroughly satisfactory. The hotel is 10-tears old, but was recently renovated. Clean, functional, comfortable, and very quiet. While we didn't... More

While visiting family, we decided to get a hotel room so the cousins could go swimming together. Unfortunately, as soon as we checked in, we learned the pool was closed for repairs. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, but rather small. Like others have said in their reviews, we had a hard time finding outlets to charge our electronics.... More

Angela - I want to thank you for your feedback from your recent stay with us. I want to apologize for the inconvenience of the pool being out. We had a child get sick in the pool area Saturday afternoon and it had to be closed for cleaning purposes. Unfortunately with the flu season going around a sick child or... More

Nice hotel. Very conveniently located. Clean. Comfortable beds. I only have 2 complaints. Need more conveniently located outlets in the room. Difficult when you have 4 people looking to plug in cell phones & laptops. Some meat on the breakfast buffet would be nice. Too many carbs for a diabetic, although I"m told the donuts were fantastic.

We stopped here while driving home from a business trip. Beds were worn out and very uncomfortable - I did not get much sleep. TV picture kept freezing up. No meat on the breakfast bar - just pure carbs. We had to eat breakfast outside the hotel. Check-in staff was friendly but the guy working in the morning obviously hates... More

My wife and I are visiting Southern Illinois often. Unless this hotel (Fairfield Inn & Suites Marion) is fully booked we stay here. We stayed here probably a couple of dozen times over the years. Place is conveniently located, staff is not changed often. When you come from the North tired after seven hours drive and see someone that you... More

Two of us stayed in a King bed room that allows a maximum of 3 people. We almost brought our adult daughter with plans to hike at the Garden of the Gods the following day. Our King room had only enough room for 2 adults. 3 adults could not have stayed in this room. It was tiny plus no roll-aways... More

I'm really loving the Fairfield Inn & Suites since they remodeled recently. We stayed at a few lately and I must say that this one really blew my mind. We had a suite king with sofa sleeper. It was really roomy for the 3 of us ( my husband, my 7 year old and myself). I like the fact that... More

This hotel is nice enough, I guess, but the king room seems a bit small in that everything seems so packed in that I get a bit of a claustrophobic effect when I stay at these inns. I find them over-priced compared to similar hotels now available these days. And, although we have used Fairfield pretty often in recent years,... More

The hotel was clean, and service was friendly. The breakfast was typical for this particular chain and got my morning off to a good start. The exercise room equipment was a bit dated with no free weights.
