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... More

Dear Cokeman 72000, Please let me begin by apologizing for your experience at the Fairfield Inn Florence. I understand how frustrating that had to be for you to change rooms. The Fairfield Inn Florence is one of the few remaining “Original, First Generation” Fairfield Inns still in operation. Twenty-six years ago when the hotel was built this was the original... More

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

Stayed one night on a trip to MD from FL. I always choose Marriott as I have a Marriott rewards card and have stayed in everything from Ritz Carlton down. Staff was very friendly but hotel room carpets are dirty and smelly. If you were allergic to mold you would be in the hospital. Not up to Mattiott standards.

First, let me be clear: I don't mind exterior entrance properties. In fact, I prefer them because of the convenience and access to my vehicle. That being said, this hotel was drastically sub par as far as older, exterior properties go. It needs either an overall DEEP cleaning, or a complete bulldoze. Those who run this place should feel ashamed... More

We needed a hotel that was 'cat friendly'. This seemed to be a good idea. Unfortunately, although I always like Marriotts, this one was below par. It was more of a motel and the room had a musty odor. It was clean enough but just not a nice place to stay for the money and had to pay additional $35... More

We stayed here for just one night on our way back to VA. The hotel is old but fine. My kids enjoyed the pool for a while. It was very convenient to have Target and other stores at walking distance. I read other reviews about the bad smell, honestly I did not feel it at all.
