“New clean and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This new Fairfield is a great stop near to the 99. We stayed one night on the way to Grand National And Sequioa National Parks and although less than 10 mins from Visalia which is closer to the parks is seems to be a fair bit cheaper than the older hotels in the area
The rooms are large with pull out sofa or twin queens traveling with kids. Has a gym and small pool as well as a large breakfast room. Breakfast is ok not amazing but those of you used to large chain 'continental breakfast' will recognise the format and it's free so no reason to complain.
One thing to avoid is the disabled access rooms on the ground floor have very strong door closers so watch out for kids fingers and the noise of the door banging shut.

All in all very good value didnt even here the road which is fairly close.

Must also mention the great family pizza and beer restaurant in Visalia called Pizanos

Marriott's styling for new Fairfield hotels has much improved. Rooms and lounge are somewhat larger than in old Fairfields while the layout of the suites now competes favorably with Marriott's Spring Hill hotels. Lively colors and modern furnishings add to the comfortable feeling. The Fairfield in Tulare is a good example. But unfortunately there are still a few problems that management has to iron out. The service at the reception desk does not work at all. There was a lot of confusion about the time breakfast is served on weekends: One receptionist said between 6 and 9 a.m., another one insisted it would be between 7 and 11 a.m., but a sign near the elevator indicates that it is between 6 and 10 a.m. When I asked the receptionist for a Chinese, Thai or Japanese restaurant nearby, the answer was: "I don't eat this kind of food. I wouldn't know." Later someone else recommended a small Japanese bistro which was actually very close to the hotel and served excellent food. The receptionists seemed confused and unwilling to provide even the simplest answers. Also: The well documented problem Marriott has with comfortable mattresses in most of its middle-class hotels seems to continue. The mattress here was mediocre at best. And a final word concerning the A/C unit: very responsive and efficient on a 108 degree day but much too loud for a A/C right next to your bed.

I was traveling on business and had spent several nights in a row at hotels and was very tired because I don't sleep well in hotels. My night here was wonderful. Clean, quiet room and super stafff. It was one of the best nights sleep on the road I have had in months.

We stayed here 2 nights with two rooms. Both were 1st floor, very quiet, roomy, and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Reasonable dining choices nearby. We liked the location so much that we adjusted our travel plans to stay there another night on our return home. Would definitely recommend.

Nice, clean, fresh property. Unfortunately, for new construction, the noise emanating from adjoining rooms is unacceptable.

I recently stayed at this hotel & it was fabulous. The rooms are all brand new. The breakfast
Was delicious. Stephanie from the front desk was very cheerful and helpful. If you are looking for a place of business or relaxation, this is the number one spot in Tulare.
