“Great overnight stop in the Mobile area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We were looking for a nice clean overnight stop on our way to Central Florida and this Fairfield fit the bill in every way. We checked around 9pm to a friendly desk clerk and a nice clean room. The breakfast provided was standard Marriott fare & service with several different options to choose from. The hotel is conveniently located just off I10. The area felt "safe" to us. We didn't see any eating options close to the hotel (withing walking distance) but there were many options to choose from on the other side of the interstate. The location is a short drive across the bridge from the Alabama battleship.

It is a typical Fairfield Inn and Marriott property. It is located close to I-10 and several places to eat. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are typically clean and comfortable. Although whoever designed the bathroom sink should have his pencil confiscated and not allowed to design again. If you are below average heigth you will have trouble reaching the faucet and the bowl will be too far away as well. It's just stupid. The A/C can be a bit noisy but tolerable. For the price, it was a great value. The free wifi was also a nice plus. The breakfast offered a good variety for most people. It was probably better than many I've experienced. A nice, decent, well-priced place to stay in a good location.

made and guaranteed a reservation for friends 6 weeks in advance only to find upon arrival that they must present MY credit card used to guarantee the reservation in order to have the the stay charged as confirmed-to my knowledge no where on the marriott reservation website is this requirement disclosed-granted, the name used to guarantee the reservation did not match that of the guest-but again this requirement was not disclosed at the time of reservation confirmation-matter was very poorly handled by the hotel front desk and even after my speaking with a hotel representative this matter was not satisfactorily resolved-by the way, the overnight stay was a birthday gift to the guests 11 year old son who along with his parents had just toured the battleship Alabama- will have to carefully rethink ever staying or recommending at this property again

Daphne, Ala is a good stopping point for travel from Central Florida to Texas. Used to stay at the Comfort Suites in Daphne,, but was lured in by the great price, $45 less per night for the room at Fairfield. Room was clean, comfortable. Staff was pleasant.

This is a good hotel in a convenent though somewhat awkward to reach location (it is on a side road off another side road). The hotel itself was very good and a good value for the price with a pleasant, helpful, and competent staff and well kept rooms and common areas. There are few if any restaurants really close to the hotel but several nice places in Fairhope to the south and toward Mobile to the west are fairly close and easy to find. There is a gigantic Bass Pro Shop near the hotel if you happen to need any outdoor supplies on you trip.

Previously when working in Mobile I stayed next door at the Courtyard which was nice. While the Fairfield wasn't as upscale I appreciated the complimentary breakfast and the division between the sitting area and the bed area. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. The exercise room had 2 treadmills and an eliptical and all seemed to work however the A/C was not working in the room on the day I used it. There is a pool and a business area. I would go back to this hotel without hesitation. FYI there is a Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World nearby.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We arrived early to an awkward greeting by the staff person who said she was the manager on duty. She smiled but wasn't genuinely nice. We actually got the impression she was asking us to leave the lobby because rooms were not available yet. We did request an early check-in during the reservation.

The view of the hill is awful. They should plant flowers or something. The room was cute and the rest of the staff very friendly. They should also put a drop off curb so you can smoothly roll your luggage out to the parking lot and not have to roll it off a curb.

The area where the hotel is located is very convenient. The breakfast is continental style, although you can make your own waffles. Nice variety for breakfast. Indoor pool is nice. You can also get city brochures on site.

What we absolutely did not like is the fact you have to go down to the front desk to get extra face cloths, even though we requested extras on the reservation. It appears they don't read the preferences. Also, during check-in, they ask the reason for your stay, which was already answered on the reservation. This is a very personal question that we feel is better not asked, especially not in front of other guests. It's an invasion of your privacy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view otherwise you get an awfully placed hill
