“They need better Housekeeping”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Upon a late arrival spending 3 nights at this hotel we found the room lacking proper cleaning. Hair in bathtub, on towels and hangers left from previous guests. Had to clean the room. Toilet paper rolls two of them were just about gone. No fresh roll left in room.
Upon calling front desk we were told housekeeper was very good. Hmm...well you would think she would have cleaned it then after being told it was not properly done! Jerry did give a credit for one night.
Her response was that someone must have been sent to the room, used it and then changed rooms. So no one checked to see if the room was in proper order. That to me is not a good way to run a business.
Bathrooms were very small. Would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a clean room!

Brannie,
Thank you for your valuable feedback on your stay; please accept my apologies for these unfortunate issues with your room. After investigating the issue, it was found that someone had been moved from the room and the staff should have rechecked the room before renting it- I agree wholeheartedly with you, we dropped the ball. These actions do not reflect Marriott standards by any means. We appreciate your business, and if you are ever in our city again, please give us another chance to show you we truly care in providing a clean product and great customer service.

Thank You-

This is the second time I have stayed at this Fairfield Inn for business. Spartan, but adequate. The front desk staff was gracious, helpful and positive. When I went to fill my ice bucket, I found chewed gum and some trash inside. It was replaced with sincere apology. Breakfast was delicious, with a nice variety.

We stayed at this location for two nights--12/30-31. Your facility was clean..no problem.
Our main complaint is the fact that we did not have a chair in the room. My husband and I
are 70 years old--having no where to sit except on the bed--was not convenient. We asked about a chair and were told they were only available in a suite. The only seat available was
a desk chair (with wheels). We would like to stay with you again,,as we regularly visit your
town. One other problem--the ice machine was out of order. The only comment from your
front desk was "sorry".

We found this hotel to be clean, friendly, and in a great location. Wireless worked, good breakfast & small pool. You can walk to the mall & tons of restaurants.

We stayed at this property for the second time in less than thirty days. Unfortunately, the circumstances that resulted in our return to Bourbonnais were not pleasant so not having to deal with a less than satisfactory hotel experience was a welcome relief.

While this hotel is not spectacular, it is clean, fresh, very conveniently located close to shopping and restaurants and the staff is extremely friendly. We have had occasion in the last two to three years to stay at every property (Hampton Inn and Lee's Inn) in this location with the exception of the Holiday Inn Express and this was by far the best option.

The breakfast leaves a bit to be desired, but for the price and the location this can easily be overlooked. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: I would opt for a second or third floor room as the only ice machine and vending area on the propert...

Been a couple of years since I have been to this area. Have stayed at this property in the past--probably been a couple of years though. I believe the hotel has been remodeled/renovated within the last year or so.

Room is your typical Fairfield Inn style and size--nothing more and nothing less. TV was a flat-panel. Wireless internet was available. Bedding was comfortable.

A huge plus for this hotel is its great location. A mall is directly across the parking lot. There is also a Cracker Barrel immediately to the right and a very good Italian restaurant immediately behind the hotel property. All of these places are easily within walking distance.

Another positive is the customer service. Stayed here a couple of times in the past and always received wonderful customer service.

As others have mentioned, this property was clean on my visit. This factor always goes a long way with me when I rate properties.

Lastly, chose this property because of value/rate. Fairfield was cheaper than all other similar places in area that I checked.

If you travel a lot, you understand that Fairfield's are generally the bottom-end of the Marriott property line. But this is a solid hotel property.

We chose this hotel based on the low amount of Marriott points it was going to cost for a one week stay. It is well located for one wanting to go to both Chicago and Springfield. Plenty of good restaurants and shopping nearby.

The Good: Very friendly check in and front desk staff. Maid service was consistent and solid. Room was comfortable and with some space. Free Internet with acceptable speed. Good choices of TV channels. Good quality bath products. Bed was quite comfortable. Free breakfast.

Needs Improvement: The towels are in need of replacement. Definitely showing their age. No onsite guest laundry machines or fitness center (which other Fairfield inn's I have been in have).

Overall - The hotel served mostly served our needs and we are planning to stay there again.
