“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

This hotel is in a good location since it is right off the interstate. There are several hotels and restaurants to choose from at this exit. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable with a microwave and refrigerator. The breakfast was adequate. My only problem was that the room had no hot water in the evening. In the morning, there was hot water but only after the water ran and ran for awhile. The location is good if heading down to the Emerald coast.

Room Tip: Top floor is usually quieter

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

For a chain, this is a really nice hotel. The room has everything you could ask for (well, no couch, but still). I compare every chain hotel I stay at to Hampton Inn because I consider them to be the "gold standard" of the brands. I'll even go out of my way to find a Hampton! But Fairfield was every bit as good.

It's really convenient, but not so "convenient" that you hear traffic. It's tucked away from the freeway. I slept really well.

I had a lukewarm shower, but they warned me about that up-front and gave me a discount after I reported my trouble. It was a nice gesture, and I'll be staying with them again when I'm in the area.

If you're looking for a place to stay on this leg of your trip, this Fairfield or the Crestview Hampton Inn are your best options. And really, it's great value and quality even though they're located "in the sticks."

This hotel was very nice. We arrived to find out that one of the boilers was out and there may not be hot water. They told us up front and gave a discount based upon the in convenience. They were nice about it and no one seemed to be leaving. I congratulate the staff on handling this well.the hotel location was far enough off the highway that you did not hear the traffic on I-10. We had a suite which was really nice. First time I did.

The staff here is friendly, the property is convenient to I-10, and the facilities are clean. We stayed here for one night and again a week later for one night. Both rooms were clean, the towels were fresh, and the breakfast was better than most Fairfields. I give it an excellent for its class of hotel.

We did a two week research prior to make a reservation on this property…we browse hotel after hotel…review after review until we book it directly with Marriott...some of the key points for our booking was the value, convenience of been so closed to I-10 and the reviews we found here. All this pay off…this property is well located, rooms are clean and breakfast service excellent however prior to our arrival we received a phone call from Patrick who advise us they were having and issue with the water heater system and most likely no hot water will be available he offer us to cancel our reservation if we like however due to the schedule we proceed…we didn’t encounter any issues. The hot water was not hot but not cold either…for the inconvenience with received a 25% discount in our rate plus points on our HH Program…can’t beat that…we definitely suggest this location because is clean and accessible.

Room Tip: Lot's of good choices on this exit including this property...

We spent the night in this hotel while traveling. We were a late check in but the young lady was more than accomodating. The room was actually far more spacious than I expected. There was a middle area with a chair, ottoman, desk, etc. We were travelers... tired when we arrived and ready for bed, therefore we didn't use that extra space, but it was nice all the same. The breakfast was very nice...pretty much anything you'd like to have was there for the taking. If you're passing through Marianna this is a nice place to "land" for a rest. I'd absolutely stay there again.

Very pleased with this hotel. Lots of choices at this exit. We were met by the Assistant manager, Patrick Ballamy, a very pleasant young man. Our first room had a TV that was not working properly. He made sure we were in another room immediately and followed up to make sure everything was okay. Very clean. Very nice room. Only thing we didn't like was the pressure of the water in the shower -- no pressure. Breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay there again.
