“A clean comfortable room at a fair price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed at the hotel after a tiring day touring Kings Canyon National Park. It was a good hotel at a very fair price. The breakfast was a bit sparse as we were there on Labor Day and the family crowd was large but it was a still decent free breakfast and I'm sure the Holiday was exceptionally busy. Many fast food restaurants and stores are near the hotel. Overall a good choice for a family or a quick business trip. Still a drive but a reasonable choice if you are touring the two large national parks.

Hi Mr. Monte-Sereno,

Thank you so much for your review! We truly appreciate your feedback. I sincerely apologize for the limited space in the breakfast room. We had an extremely large group in house for a family reunion. Thank you so much for understanding! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and I hope to see you again if you're ever in the area again. :)

Have a great day!

Was only here for a brief overnighter, but the room (twin doubles) was very comfortable and extremely clean. TV was great with a well functioning remote (I've had problems with this at other hotels). Bathroom was large with lots of counter space. Shower had great pressure and water volume. Hotel was very quiet.
Hotel had a very nice indoor pool, jacuzzi, and adequate breakfast. That said, the room may be a little tight (but manageable) for a family of 4 that might have a lot of luggage on the floor.
Good location ... only a short drive to the Downtown District and an Applebee;s across the street.

We originally planned on spending an entire week here but changed our reservation when we realized it's a good 1.5+ hours away from anything to see in the park. It's a lovely location and worked well with our travel plans. No issues. Clean room. Good Breakfast. Everything we expect from a Marriott. It's our hotel of choice and we measure all others by the 'Marriott Standard'.

We stopped and stayed one night on our way to Sequoia. Our room was clean and included a refrigerator. The bed was comfortable. The desk staff were friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast is a nice bonus.

I usually stay at Courtyards when traveling on business, but recent price increases at the Courtyards, including lack of free breakfast and coffee, is pushing me more towards other properties such as the Fairfield Inns when possible. This Fairfield Inn is, from the perspective of the property itself, an average experience. The building is aging but not too old, the interior and the rooms are maybe a little rough around the edges but not in ways that most people would notice. The breakfast was the typical fare you'd find at most other similar hotels (such as Hamptons) -- hot scrambled eggs and sausage, waffle machine, assortment of breads, fruit salad, yogurts, etc. The breakfast food that these hotels serve typically come from vendors such as Sysco -- it's pre-cooked in a factory and then reheated by the hotel staff. If you want something more than this and are willing to pay for it, there are restaurants right across the parking lot, within walking distance.

Anyway, what really impressed me about the Fairfield Inn Visalia, and pushed this from an average review to above-average, was the management. The front desk staff was very friendly and seemed to care a great deal about the quality of the service and the facilities, and in providing a good value. For example, I was hoping for a king room, but the only one they had left had a broken television. When I told them I didn't watch TV much and didn't care about that, they not only gave me the room but offered to cut the rate down significantly because the TV wasn't working. Definitely a win-win for everyone. It's interesting that although it's the same hotel chain (Marriott), the Fairfields can definitely attract the business travelers such as myself, and even win my business over a Courtyard (which are becoming a bit stuffy), by being so appealing and welcoming. Excellent experience all the way around.

The Fairfield is my back-up hotel when I'm unable to book a room at my preferred location. Good over-all hotel, nothing special, basic accommodations at a fair price. This location could stand a refresh and more electrical outlets to accommodate the many electronic devices most people travel with and faster wifi.
