Helpful and courteous staff. Room was clean but bed not very comfortable. Hotel is very old and could use updating of the rooms. Exterior is currently under renovation. Breakfast was good. Hot and fresh. Not sure I would stay here again.

This Fairfield is under major renovation. Room average at best. It had a musty feel & uncomfortable beds. As a result we got a great deal online. Friendliest staff from front desk to breakfast attendant. Very convenient location by I95. Will be very nice when completed.

My wife and I travel with national chain hotels/motels because, usually, the only surprises are great surprises. HOWEVER---We were shocked by how "tired" the Fairfield Inn, Florence, SC has become. The rooms are tired. The heat/ac units sound like get engines on takeoff. The bathrooms, while clean, are "tired". You can do better in Florence, SC.

I spent a night in this structure with one colleague. Hotel surroundings are quite poor, maybe due to the late hour we arrived. Lobby is ok, a bit cold. We were on ground floor, facing the parking, with door directly accessible from outside, giving sensation of low security. Room was ok, not modern but clean and quite spacious. It gave... More

outside of Hotel has true 1970's first impression. Looks as if they are trying to do some remodeling to the exterior. Inside room....small, not what I was expecting. Room was nicely painted, carpets appeared clean, bed and linens stood up to name expectations. However room has mildew smell. Breakfast in lobby was standard but was hot and tasteful.

This original-style motel ( some rooms with outside entrance) is undergoing a gradual renovation and updating. My room ( third floor, interior entry) was clean, spacious and very comfortable for my overnight stay. The lobby area has been modernized, and provides a very good breakfast, including a waffle station and all the usual FI amenities. The common areas ( elevator,... More

The Staff was very accomodating. Note that this hotel does allow pets, which we didn't know. The hotel looks like it is being renovated and the hallways, rooms, and exterior are all very dated. The room was large on the 3rd floor and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was also a little run down. The breakfast was super and... More

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.
