“Awesome pool, tiki bar and breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This hotel is a bit far from downtown as the other reviews will say as well as the annoying construction. However, the pool is insane. Beautiful and with lots of space. We had great weather during our stay too. The tiki bar is nice feature, being able to enjoy a light beer poolside. The staff were extremely nice and welcoming. The breakfast was very good with a lot of options. It was wonderful to sit by the pool while eating breakfast and reading a newspaper. There is also a bike and scooter rental onsite, which really would be necessary if you didn't have a car there given where it is located. The room was small but did the job. All you will want to do is hang out at the pool while you are there anyway.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view

We are the closest Marriott to downtown but certainly not the closest hotel. We do feel that our location allows us to keep our prices lower than the downtown hotels. It also allows us to maintain a quieter place to rest for our guests than the downtown hotels. I hope that you agree! Thank you for your feedback!

A reasonable place, but not great. The rooms were clean and very quiet, at least in the back where we were. But the rooms have no view and ours was dark and enclosed. But a great breakfast and nice pool. A reasonable place to stay.

The property is nice for the cost. They have an outstanding pool and Tiki bar. With the ongoing US1 construction (N. Roosevelt Street) location it hurts this property greatly. Unfortunately, all 3 Marriott properties are located on this stretch, the Fairfield being closest to downtown. Thanks goodness for The Ole Town Trolley stopping at the hotel to get downtown. You can ride a bike, alittle to far to walk. Really nice breakfast, included with stay, very friendly staff. Avoid Springbreak, but if you happen to go then, this hotel has great sound reduction walls between rooms.

Room Tip: Limited number of balcony rooms, overlooking pool. Worth a request.

I read several lukewarm reviews prior to staying here (Feb '13), so I had fairly low expectations. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - the manager even cleaned our room one evening when we pointed out that the maids had missed it that day! The pool is spectacular, and I love the poolside open-air bar. Our room was nothing special, but it was clean...although both beds were QUITE noisy (sorry neighbors!).

Now, for the mediocre location. It's a little over 2 miles to Duval Street, so not practically walkable (esp. in the warmer months). We solved this by renting bikes for the week rather than depend on cabs every time we wanted to go downtown. I would recommend bike rentals (we got ours for a pretty reasonable price at Eaton Bikes on Eaton & Margaret) - it's a great way to see the island and get some exercise.

Another issue that is a bit inconvenient - there is major road construction going on (through 2015 I believe) right on Roosevelt Blvd. where the Fairfield Inn is located. If you miss the hotel entrance you have to make a ridiculously long detour circle to get back there (we were warned about this several times).

Luckily I was able to pay for this stay with hotel points...but when I checked the prices they seemed quite high (over $330/night as of March 2013). Maybe that's the going rate in Key West that time of year, but it probably wouldn't hurt to check around.

...but the Hotel was nice, albeit nothing great from a room standpoint and it is unfortunately for them located right on Rte 1, which is under heavy construction. This made getting out and about somewhat tricky but still manageable as we used the Hotel as a base for our exploring. Our two room King Suite was a bit small by Marriott Property standards but was clean and well stocked. The Staff was great, very friendly, helpful, and as everyone seems to be down there very laid back. I echo the sentiments of others regarding the pool, Tiki Bar, and breakfast. We were greeted each morning with a big smile and a plate handed to us and at the end of each meal chocolate kisses were handed out as they cleaned our table. For a complimentary service we certainly felt spoiled! We used the gym and pool and both were very clean and well maintained. It happened to be my Birthday and we were surprised with a couple of free drink vouchers upon check in(see great staff comments above). This property is not near an easy access to the water so if you are looking for beachfront I wouldn't recommend it, but if you are looking for a nice moderately priced Marriott Property from which to base your own explorations I believe you will enjoy it here. I know we did.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and quite frankly didn't hear a thing during our entire stay.

Granted we went at the high season but it seemed overpriced for a basic room with no carpet, open to the outside, and not close to the historic district. The door had to be slammed to be shut which caused a great deal of noise for both us and our neighbors. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was included. The pool was beautiful and the Tiki bar was nice with a great bartender. That was a big plus.

Room Tip: The back side of the property is quieter and away from the road construction noise.

Rooms are rather small but very clean. Amenities are great! Pool, Tiki Bar, Breakfast were terrific. But the best part of it all was how the staff was their for you. From Pete the bartender at the Tiki Bar to the servers at the breakfast poolside. Had a problem with the heat the first day. They fixed it immediately, wrote a nice note, and gave us 2 free drink tickets! Would go back!
