I was very pleased with our one bedroom suite. Nicely decorated and very clean. There was plenty of space to stretch out and work. The front desk staff was very helpful and honored our requests for a higher floor and feather free room.

I love the Fairfield Inns. They are typically very pleasant little hotels for a quick one or two nights. I was in Marion Mother's Day weekend for an SIU graduation. It was very crowded. But, the staff did a good job of keeping everything clean and organized. Staff was always pleasant and friendly. I was very happy that they were... More

The suite we had was clean and updated. The heat was not loud. Multiple newspapers available. Breakfast was good. The workout room left a bit to be desired. Equipment was not in great shape, so we did not get a real work out.
