This place is low quality for Marriott. I realize that Fairfield is on the low end of the Marriott chain but I've stayed at Holiday Inn's nicer than this. I expected it to be on the same level as a Hilton Homewood Suite, it wasn't, Homewood is much nicer. We stayed in the Executive King Suite here at the Fairfield... More

Typical hotel, nothing out of the ordinary but what is expected; very clean, friendly staff and convenient off the highway. We stayed the night for a quick day trip to Charleston and didn't want to pay the outrageous prices directly in Charleston. This hotel is about 15 minutes away from downtown. The wine and light snacks was a nice touch.... More

Second time to visit in the past month. Both times our stay was great. We booked a king executive suite which has a separate sofa area that allows one person to sleep late while the other can get up early and not disturb the late sleeper. Friendly staff, great location.

Great Customer Service. Clean, safe, fairly new hotel. Rooms are small and beds are not queen size as advertised (they are twin). Short drive to Charleston (about 15 min). It has a Starbucks right in front of the hotel. Over all, good hotel for a one or two day stay.

Dear pinzonlf, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! All of our double/double rooms feature full size beds. We do not have advertisements that we have queen sized beds, so I am wondering if your review is for the wrong location. Either way, our double beds are the standard full size (54"x74"). Twin beds measure at 39"x74".... More

We stayed on a free night with our Marriott points and weren't disappointed. Everything was neat and clean and the staff was accommodating...decent location a little farther from downtown than we anticipated but very convenient to a lot of familiar places for coffee and breakfast!
