Whenever we travel overnight we stay at Marriott hotels. I am a Gold Elite member. This is the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at this location. Condition of rooms is uneven like a bumpy road. One time the room smells musty like mildew. The next time not. This time we could barely stand the smell. Last time I'll... More

Stayed at Fairfield Inn in Florence SC on a trip from FL to VA. Should have figured out it was not going to be great when Marriott only charged us 10,000 points. It is usually 25,000 for an one night. The people are really great, it is clean, nice TV. But the overall facility is very old. Bottom two floors... More

Our family stayed at this "motel quality" Fairfield Inn on March 14th. Will not again. We checked in late and front desk staff was very help full and she was very friendly. We trusted the name so didn't read any reviews. Marriott shouldn't have listed this under their umbrella!!! Our family was very disappointed!!!

I stay in over 100 Marriott properties per year (Platinum member) and really feel duped that I relied on the "seal of approval" in regards to this property. It is slightly above a Super 8/Motel 6 and accordingly is way over-priced. I should've checked the reviews, but typically with the Marriott name attached, you can feel somewhat comfortable that certain... More

I am a Marriott Platinum elite member so I stay in Marriotts quite often. This hotel appears to be an older property bought and renovated by Marriott. Ice machine on 2nd and 3rd floors was broken. Rooms are clean but basic, as expected for a Fairfield. 1st and 2nd floor rooms are outside entry which is extremely rare for any... More

Very old style hotel. Rooms very clean but many amenities old and not very functional. Toilet didn't work properly. Drain came off in tub. Heat and appliances noisy. Electric plug kept breaking the circuit with hair dryer.

Having stayed at various Marriott brand hotels, this is the first one that disappointed me for the following reasons: room smelled like cigarette smoke, heating unit was very noisy, room did not pass the Queen's white glove inspection, common areas were not clean (i.e. trash, empty soda bottles lying around, etc.), elevator was on outside of building which makes for...

We booked this room for overnight 3-4 January 2014, and paid Expedia for it. When our Visa monthly bill arrived, we found that personnel at Fairfield Inn Florence, SC had separately charged us for the same facility. We brought this to their attention in two separate phone calls, giving all details, codes, file numbers, etc., requesting that the equivalent credit... More

We picked this hotel because it is on I95, is part of Marriott , and because they accept dogs but it was the worst place I have stayed in many years. I should have read the TA reviews more carefully. It doesn't look so bad when you pull in, but the lobby is small and the first thing you see... More
