Needed a hotel close to Iowa Western C. C. and found this place on tripadvisor. It was along interstate 80 and only about 10 minutes from the college. The only thing to be aware of is it's location next to the interstate. If traffic noise bothers you then it may be a problem. Luckily for us it doesn't bother us.... More

Hot tub had only 2 working jets out of a possible 12. On Saturday evening there was no adult supervusion in pool area with 11 kids running, jumping, and diving into 4 ft pool. My husband fell inside lobby entrance due to wet slippery floor. Parking lot was ice-packed. Our room was right next to elevator. It was a king... More

Spent one night here and property met expectations. Front desk personnel friendly, efficient and informative. Rooms are small, but clean and well appointed. Nicely stocked market area near front desk. Breakfast area very clean and offerings plentiful and healthy. Only negative-awakened quite a bit during the night by train whistle. This property is close to Interstate. Ask for non-Interstate side... More

Chose to stay here during a visit to Omaha because we got a really good rate. Room was spacious and renovated. Service was good and friendly. Wifi was strong in the rooms (and free!). Cracker barrel, red lobster, perkins, aldis, gordmans and office max all very nearby. Hotel was quiet, never heard any hallway noise or doors slamming or anything... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Fairfield October 1 for a weekend getaway. We chose the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, and the fact that this hotel is $10 cheaper per night than the budget hotels surrounding the casinos. At this location there are many great places to eat and shop. Casinos, Bass Pro, and AMC movie theater... More

I called the Marriott main number and they told me this hotel was close to the airport. Well we passed two other marriotts CLOSER to the airport than this one. If you want to gamble at the casino or want to be near tons of family restaurants, then okay. But if you have a 6am flight, you're better off elsewhere.... More

Dear C001, Thank you for your review. Please accept my apologies for any misinformation that you received about our location. We are the closest Marriott to the Council Bluffs airport, but as you stated we are not the closest to the Omaha airport. I have already passed along this information to Marriott to keep another mix up from occurring. Once... More

Even though this hotel was not ranked high on Trip Advisor, we decided to take a chance since other Fairfields we had stayed in were perfect for us. That was a wrong decision. The hotel was older and our room was a typical small hotel room. I had thought that all Fairfield rooms had a separate sitting and bedroom area,... More

Very clean and friendly. Rooms were spacious. We go to Colorado from Illinois every year. We have stayed at a different hotel evertime. We will now be staying here, going and coming back. The price is reasonable also.

I stayed here with my two teenage girls. Felt very safe, the hotel and the hotel staff were excellent! The pool stayed open late, the breakfast was excellent, and always had what we needed. Would definitely stay here again! My only complaint would be that the receptionist reassured me that she would not use my credit card (because I prepaid)... More

The staff, as usual were friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the hotel was located in a nice area. As I travel alone for business, knowing I'm safe and comfortable is the most important thing to me.
