This is a good spot just off 94 just east of St. Joseph. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff are great and welcoming. There is not much around it and much of the village is closed at night, so go out early to find dinner or head into St. J. to eat. Breakfast was good.

Like many families, we wanted to do a quick trip out of the city over MLK weekend. I'm so happy I found this property. It was nice to be able to stay at a more modern hotel as a lot of the water parks I looked at had really, really old looking rooms. This hotel seemed pretty new. The staff... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this "sleeper". Never stayed here nor knew of anyone who has. I'm thinking it's been remodeled because I believe it's been there for some time. Very tastefully decorated and friendly staff. Breakfast was good as far as hotel breakfast goes. I was there with 6 other family members in adjoining rooms. My grandsons were fine... More

Nice large lobby. Looks more like a courtyard layout than a Fairfield hotel. Our room was nice but the bed and pillows was the WORST I'd ever slept on Ever. The hotel is connected to resort like indoor swinging place called Surfari Joes. This means huge volume of weekend children...so quiet and peaceful atmosphere are not present. Breakfast area overrun... More

Famous for good value and Marriott quality, this location (off I-94, closer to Watervliet than to St. Joseph) is a great spot for family and large gatherings. Breakfast area is huge and well supplied. Suites are spacious and clean and comfortable---love that Marriott bed. Staff helpful and efficient. Surprisingly quiet, given near Interstate interchange, and a fitness room that deserves... More

We were welcomed, the front desk staff were friendly and courteous, our room was very good, we enjoyed the breakfast provided and the friendly staff working the breakfast. Overall, we were well served by the Fairfield Inn as one of many stops on our 18 day road trip.
