We stayed at this property on our way to Hilton Head on May 30, 2014. The desk clerk was on her cell phone when we arrived and never put the phone down. She checked us in with the phone propped on her shoulder. Later I came down to get some hot tea at the refreshment center. She was still on... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel while traveling to Myrtle Beach. The location is a bit tricky but no big deal. I was a little annoyed because the desk clerk seemed to have disappeared but luckily another employee with a different job description was able to check us in. Actually, as we were leaving the next morning, she... More

This was one of the nicest Fairfield properties in which we have ever stayed. Clean, large rooms, with outstanding amenities. Breakfast was exceptional and outdoor seating was large and quiet. Good staff, with one exception, the desk manager, Josh Dobbs, who is not friendly, nor accommodating. We arranged a late checkout with the night staff (Katie), who gave us the... More

It is a select service hotel, but it is very clean, so much so it looks brand new. The staff is very friendly (especially the breakfast attendant). The breakfast was perfect for the price (free), with Belgian waffles, eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, cereals, oatmeal and pastries. They even have a plate a fresh baked cookies and lemonade in the... More

We had to find a dog friendly place to stay in Columbia and discovered this very clean attractive Fairfield Inn on Blarney Road. It looks new because it is so clean. The rooms were bright, nicely decorated and they had a nice pool. The grassy areas for the dogs were very nice too. It was difficult to find it because... More

This appears to be a new hotel. Everything is clean and updated. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Tuesdays and Wednesdays two hour drinks and snacks. Free breakfast every morning. Overall a good experience.

I travel quite a bit and spend a lot of nights in hotels. I'm pretty picky. I'm not that demanding, but neither do I tolerate shabby, poorly-maintained rooms, or rude staff. Be aware of the fact that this place is hard to find at night (at least it was for me). It is very close to the interstate but traffic... More

Book a room so that we did not have to drive home to NC after the concert at the Colonial Life Arena. The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk personnel was friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was awesome. Would stay there again if necessary.

We recently stayed at the Fairfield, to attend our sons graduation from the Army. To start with we were told we would not be able to receive the military discount because of the room size, I was not informed of this when I booked the room. Our room was barely cleaned, toilet paper was not replaced, we had to call... More

Upon arrival, surprised to see that they dont have my room available. They just accommodated me at a nearby comfort inn. Granted it is Masters week and this is close to Augusta, GA, but very bad experience in the middle of the night to go for another hotel.
