“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I recently stayed at the Fairfield Inn in Shalimar, FL with my mother. The hotel was located in a nice area and within reasonable distance of attractions. The room was nice and slept well. The only issue was the kareoke bar on the other side of a wall but even though loud, the bar had to stop it at a decent hour. The staff was one of the best I have ever encountered at a chain hotel. We came in late one day, after they had stopped serving hot cookies. My mom asked about them and they actually made some just for her! Breakfast was alright and the lady in the breakfast room was also very accomodating. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the kareoke bar

my recent stay at fairfield started off ok... I stayed on associate rate and got the "sportbar side of the building wish was horrible!! When i complain the second time around i finally had to change rooms at 11.30pm at nite. With a long trip ahead of me the next day. I figure i got the bad side of the building because of the discount rate wish is not exceptable at all. I would think it would be the other way around being that we all work under the "Marriott brand" Bye/ and good luck "Fairfield INn.

The hotel was nice overall. I was here for a work trip and this was the only Marriott around. Rates were higher at 149 a night in November. Was on the back side by cheers club and had no noise complaints.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Fairfield Inn while visiting our daughter who is stationed at Eglin AFB. We prefer Marriott properties and often stay at a Fairfield when looking for an economy hotel. The Fairfield Inn Fort Walton is a nice property. It is within minutes of Eglin AFB, very clean, and well maintained. The breakfast buffet is typical Fairfield i.e., nothing special but beats going out and paying for an expensive breakfast in town.

The only thing that made our stay less than enjoyable was the thin wall between our room (124) and the room next to us. We literally heard EVERYTHING that went on in the other room and consequently did not sleep well the first night. When we informed the front desk the next day the staff was very accommodating and moved us to another room (a suite). The bummer about the move was that I left my Air Force jacket in the closet of the first room and ended up losing it in the move.

I recommend the Fairfield if you are looking for a moderately priced hotel convenient to Eglin AFB but you may want to avoid room 124 and request the most sound proof room when checking in.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 124, and ask for a sound proof room.

We thank you so much for posting your review, for it is through communication that we may better serve our guests.
WE HAVE GREAT NEWS!!! We found your Air Force jacket! It seems that it may have fallen in the hallway when you were switching rooms and our Guest Room Attendant did not know who it belonged to when she found it.
We are terribly sorry that your experience was less than satisfactory, but we hope the room change made all the difference.
We look forward to your call and we thank you for visiting!

Second trip to this hotel for business and it was ok for the purpose. Close to the job in FL. Staff was friendly, hotel was clean. Cheers bar is right behind so if you get a room on the back side beware. First trip our car license plate was stolen, but no issues on the second stay. Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Overall, I would return for business, close to local shopping and day to day business. Also close to the airport, pretty much a straight shot.
