I am a regular at Marriott properties, and Fairfield Inn is usually a very good pick. BUT this time for reason unbeknownst to me, they didn't bother to post the fact that the hotel was under remodel construction. They were replacing Siding with Stucco. Granted the parts that were completed looked great, but unfortunately they put us in an area... More

Gave us a family funeral rate. Clean room always. Great free breakfast with very attentive morning service. Right next to the big mall for great shopping. It's easy to find, right off route 95. The price was good. Great stop on the way to/ from Florida.

We love Marriotts, so chose the Fairfield Inn Florence for a one-night stopover when visiting family. The front desk staffer, Crystal, was friendly and helpful. Although we were earlier than anticipated, our room was ready and Crystal assigned our family a room nearby as well. The room was a typical Fairfield Inn room ... enough room for two people and...

My husband and I stayed here on our way back to New England; and on the basis of it being a Marriott property, I assumed it would have certain standards; but one shouldn't assume because you know what that makes out of "u" and "me". First of all, a new facade is being installed, so the property is a mess,... More

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.
