A favorite exit on I-95...halfway between NY and Florida. Great area for an overnight. Almost every chain property is represented including a Marriott Courtyard and a Residence Inn if you are Marriott fans. They're a few bucks more than this shop-worn, outside entrance(on the first floor) room.entrances Rooms are small, the free breakfast is worth exactly what you paid for... More

Dear Dick and Merle, Please let me begin by apologizing for your experience at the Fairfield Inn Florence. The Fairfield Inn Florence is one of the few remaining "Original, First Generation" Fairfield Inns still in operation. Twenty-seven years ago this was the layout and design that you would have seen.

Stayed 1 nights on my way from FL to PA. Just off Rt 95 with restaurants in the area. Used the Marriott app to make a reservation and showed up 5 minutes later. They were ready for me. Lobby area has been updated and looks good. The hot breakfast is the normal Fairfield and appreciated in the morning. Food was... More

I stayed here in late November with elderly in-laws on the way from DC to Florida. Contrary to some reviews, there's absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel: it's just off I-95 yet quiet, neat, clean, and comfortable, with friendly, courteous staff, good free wi-fi and a good hot breakfast. Yes, it's relatively old for a Fairfield Inn ('80s), but undergoing... More

It has been 6 months since my wife and I stayed at this Fairfield Inn. I've read many of the negative reviews but we have been staying here on our trips to Florida for 10 years.

We opted to spend a little extra money for the Fairfield name as we drove down the I-95 corridor to end our vacation. The reservation process was seamless, the desk clerk was very personable, and the location was good. We were surprised when we got into the room at how small it was. It was a relief to see that...

The service here was excellent, the front desk associate was excellent at check in, he explained the breakfast, wifi and where my room was located in a very professional manner. The complementary breakfast was excellent. Only issue I had was with the GM, in passing he never acknowledged my presence. As I was checking in I also heard the way... More

We stayed at this hotel recently. The first room they gave us smelled like mold and mildew, so they gave us a different room. The rooms are very small and the bathroom is the smallest that I have ever seen! The property is being remodeled and the room was ok, just small. The breakfast was average and the front desk...

We picked this location while driving down I-95 to Florida. Its nothing to write home about, but there are much worse places. Also, this is a motel like style except for third floor which is indoors. Location: Location is great as it is close to I-95. There is a Target and other shops directly across the parking lot. Target closes... More

Dear BS0716, Our hotel is one of a dozen or so of the "Original First Generation" Fairfield Inn's that are still operating as a Fairfield Inn. In comparison to the newer hotels our rooms and bathrooms are much smaller than today's standards. The exterior walkways on the first two floors does give us a "motel" appearance. We do have new...

The hotel is at a good location. It's right off I95 and easy to get to. Outside entrances to rooms. Plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. It is a little dated but comfortable. On the downside there is no refrigerator in the room. When traveling we like to be able to refrigerate our beverages rather than use ice. They do... More
