Clean, nicely decorated hotel with little wear. Our room at an end of the third floor with two queens was quiet; only needing a little caulk around tub in bathroom - otherwise spotless. Liked having fridge and microwave - no small freezer section for my ice pack, but plenty of ice available on first floor. Friendly staff. Good variety at... More

We stopped here unplanned. Rooms were about all booked. Negotiated the rate down $15. Pool is really small for the motel size and the hot tub was nasty. Otherwise I would have gave this place 4 rating. Rooms were clean and nice. Breakfast was really good also. We'd stay here again if in the area.

I booked this hotel approximately one week before check in. It was booked through a third party vendor as the hotel website did not have a room with two queen beds available. My friend and I were to check in on 7/15/15 and contacted the hotel to get directions as the GPS could not locate the hotel. I was asked... More

My family and I have stayed at this hotel before and we really enjoyed it. This time was no exception for the most part. We stayed on the 3rd floor this time in room 327. It had two beds and a fridge and microwave. Last time the fridge was not cold at all and this time it was perfect. I... More

Seriously thought about sleeping in my car.....but came across the Fairfield Inn while searching on my phone. Called and they had vacancies!! Road weary i was met at the front desk late at night by a very nice friendly desk clerk!... More

Stayed one night--this hotel is very clean. A+ on that, it's also easy to find and convenient to restaurants, state park and downtown.Breakfast looked a little better than most but we didn't eat there. We had a standard king room but it was on the small side. No refrigerator or microwave and I was told that if you have a... More

Our standard King room was very nice, but it was a bit on the small side and, unlike similar hotels, it didn't have a refrigerator. I had assumed the room would be bigger and that it would have a refrigerator and microwave--my bad. These drawbacks didn't severely impact our stay in a major negative way, but they were noticeable inconveniences... More

Location is great. Used the Marriott app (recommended) to check-in after a 5 hour hike and our key cards were ready by the time we walked in. Front desk was very friendly. Room 236 was clean, comfortable bed, plenty of pillows, clean sheets and clean bathroom. The air unit did make some noise when the fan was on but not... More

We went to Ottawa,IL, for the 2Rivers Wine Fest. The room was comfortable with a nice bathroom. The shower was designed for those with limited mobility,because it had a ledge for sitting. Free breakfast was provided.

This relatively new Fairfield located just off of I-80 in Ottawa, IL provided just what we asked for - a clean, quiet room with extra towels and an accessible bathtub. We could not hear any road noise. Both my wife & I noticed a slight scent of sawdust. We've had more comfortable beds in other Fairfields. Maybe it was just... More
