“Good, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

This hotel is in a great location, being near to Disney, intl drive and other key Orlando destinations.

The rooms are spacious and the hotel nicely decorated. The staff make ths hotel as they ar friendly and nothing is to much trouble.

The one down side is breakfast is quite poor (although free, it would be factored into the price) and feels like a free for all, with everyone fighting for a table to sit after they have been to the buffet to collect the food.

The only other complaint is that all rooms do not have safety deposit boxes, this can be a pain to keep on going to reception to store valuables in the boxes held behind the desk.

The pool area is nice. The gym is adequate, however was missing some matching dumbells!

In summary this hotel is good value for money, however can get v busy at weekends.

Let me begin by saying that I really like Marriott brand hotels because they are typically consistent. My husband and I planned a weekend away in Orlando and chose this property for two reasons. 1. It was SUPER close to Disney - we're heading to the International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. 2. This place was cheap. That's right folks - a AAA member rate of $62 / per nite with free breakfast was just right for us thrifty folks!

Upon arrival, we were given immediate access to our room - several hours earlier than standard check in time. Parking was free and convenient. The lobby area was being freshened up with new paint and looked great. There was a food court around the corner, a sparking pool and hot tub, and there are periodic shuttles to the parks directly to/from the hotel (schedule is somewhat limited, so check in advance). It's $7 per person, so if you have a large party, it's probably worth just driving to the parks and paying the $15 per day parking fee.

There were slight issues with upkeep in the hotel - a few scrapes on the walls, the single elevator was really slow, and the hallway on the 5th floor was very warm. But I could overlook this stuff, given that the room was comfy and the hotel was a good value.

We had a standard king room, which was not overly large but had the basics we needed. It was very clean and tidy. The A/C worked great. We overlooked the parking lot and I-4. You could hear some slight traffic noise, but not enough to disturb.

Breakfast isn't a big deal for us, as we're light morning eaters. But I'd advise to get there early before the tables are gobbled up.

All in all, I'd be pleased to stay here again. It would be a great hotel for families!

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor facing I-4. You could hear a bit of traffic noise, but nothing dramatic th...

This was our 2nd stay this year at this hotel, on arrival we were upgraded to the family room which was fab, had a separate area with bunkbeds and another tv which was great for my son.
We were on the 3rd floor and faced the I4 and parking lot, there was no noise from traffic, and after staying many times here and having a pool view room i much prefer this room as it was alot quieter and no noise from the pool in the evening.

the staff again were wonderful and the breakfast were really good they had replaced the scambled eggs (which always tasted powdery) with boiled eggs, and they also had omelettes in pitta bread, im not a breakfast person so cereal and toast is fine for me.

They have a food court but we never used this as we ate out most of the time,there are several resturants within walking distance and we even used Ci Cis across the road once - not a lover of Pizza but it was ok, but the cinnamon rolls at $1.99 were fab

Hotel again was clean and housekeeping excellent.

We didnt use the shuttles to the parks as we had a car but you book them upto an hour before you travel.

We have stayed here many times and each time always get excellent service and great value for the cost of the hotel i work in the travel trade and always recommend this hotel for those on a budget as you cant beat it.

Room Tip: Away from the pool as its quieter

We (family) stayed in the Fairfield inn suites in a family suite on Sept 21, 2012 and had a great stay. The room had bunk beds for the kids and a separte room for the adults!! The room was a little worn from all the use. This hotel is basically across the interstate from Disney world, Downtown Disney , etc. This Marriott village has foodcourt on site with, pizza, subs, salads, drinks and deserts good for a quick fast meal. There are many other big chain resturants very close by too. The pool was basic but good with a hot tub. The morning breakfast at the Fairfield is limited and can be very busy. The staff is set up for this and they warn you of the crowded times. You can also buy your Disney World tickets there too. We will return.

Room Tip: get a family room

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn back in 2006 and was so impressed with the hotel that we decided to stay here again.

The hotel is situated in near proximitiy to all the theme parks as well as Downtown Disney and International Drive and this is one of the main reasons why came back to this hotel.

The Marriott Village is a group of three hotels and a small market place. If you are staying at one of the hotels you are able to use the amenities of the other two hotels during your stay.
Parking is also free at the hotel which was a bonus as almost everyone holidaying in the US will hire a car unless they are stopping in one of the Disney hotels.

The room was standard size with two double size beds, a TV and a fridge. The fridge really came in handy to store water, pop and food so that after a long day in the theme park you are able to enjoy a drink without moving too far.

Rooms were cleaned daily and was done to a high standard.

The complimentary breakfast was excellent, although finishing at 9.30am could be a bit early should you want to stay in bed late. My advice is (as is the hotel's advice) to get to breakfast early as you will not be able to get a table otherwise.

The staff in the hotel were all very helpful and friendly.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice place to lay their head at night, get free breakfast in the morning and wants to be in close proximity to all the attractions that Orlando has to offer.

Room Tip: Try to choose a poolside room as it's much quieter than being on the street side.

The Fairfield Inn Marriot Village seems to be recently refurbished. It´s a good option for family or anyone else visiting Disney/Universal Theme Parks. The breakfast is not what we (brazilians) are used to, but it´s ok. Well located, near to the most important points. The "village" is very nice. There is a place where you´ll find food and snacks inside the village. It´s very convenient.
