Very fair price. Great location. Not far from the highway but within a shopping plaza with restaurant and stores like Target. The website gave me the option to ask ahead of time for extra towels but I'm not sure my request made it to the hotel itself. The staff though was extremely nice and friendly.

Yisroelf, Thank you for the nice comments about our hotel. The staff here does work very hard to meet the needs of our guests. Within a mile of the hotel there are at least 18 restaurants plus the Magnolia Mall for any shopping needs you may have. We look forwadr to having you stay with us again in the future.... More

Basic motel room, but everything was clean and up-to-date. The bed was comfortable, the Wi-Fi worked well from the room. I didn't see any construction in progress. The breakfast was the same as at all Fairfields. If you're traveling with a pet, there's a $35 cleaning fee. The restaurant next door has take-away meals, so you won't have to leave... More

It was late and after a long day of traveling, decided to find the closest Marriott for the night. This hotel topped the list so went on-line and checked rates then called the hotel directly. The clerk would not honor the rate I found online (Marriott site) and told me I had to book it on line – even after... More

Dear Coco1231, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about the hotel. The hotel renovations were to the exterior of the building. Our vinyl siding was replaced with stucco. We are not renovating the guest rooms. The newer rooms that the clerk mentioned were the 3rd floor executive rooms. Those rooms are a little larger and have... More

Old hotel, small rooms, dirty corridors. But the staff is very friendly and helpful. They reassigned us to a new room after we complained about the smell in the original one. Marriott should not allow the use of its name. I will not trust the Marriott brand in the future, as I have done for decades..

Juan B, Please let me apologize for your recent 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.

Generally speaking Fairfield is a no frills OK hotel, this property is a disgrace to the name, imagine an enclosed 3rd floor elevator lobby supposedly air conditioned and a suite with a fixed window opening on this lobby + the air conditioning is discharging hot air in this enclosed lobby, making the average temperature 100F and more and you have...

I can't believe this is a Marriott property. What a dump! Please don't give me the construction bull. You couldn't find the front door, if you stayed on the third floor you got off the elevator into a locked area that you could only open with a key. Who could have been waiting there for you?

Stayed in Florence for work. Myself and a 3 person crew stayed the week of 5/18/15. The hotel has been improved since my last visit a couple of years ago, however, construction was still being performed on the 3rd floor where my room was located. The primary reason for this review is to thank the staff for looking after my... More

We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend and it wasn't too bad. Staff was very nice and accommodating. However, this hotel used to be some type of Economical hotel because the rooms are set up differently than a normal Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott. They completed the renovation, but just a few more additions, such as a refrigerator... More
