Located in the convention hub of Collinsville, Illinois, this is the basic Fairfield Inn you expect very near to St. Louis without the higher prices you'd get in the big city itself. This doesn't mean that this is an inexpensive hotel, it was still over $100 a night.
The bed was acceptable quality but the pillows were very flat as soon as you laid your head down. Maid service while we were there was just the basics and it was clear that there was some mold or mildew around the bathtub under the faucet.
The room had a refrigerator and microwave along with a hairdryer and coffee/hot water maker with a selection of instant tea and coffee. There was a separate desk and chair for computer work and a fairly large screen, flat TV with Showtime and HBO on the cable line-up.
The front desk staff and everyone we encountered was very friendly. One of the evenings we were there they had Otis Spunkmeyer cookies freshly baked for folks and the breakfast room was well-stocked during the hours it was open. There was more at the breakfast (included in your room price) than I expected -- beyond the waffle maker, hard boiled eggs, cold cereals, juice, milk, and oatmeal there was some type of heated meat and eggs as well. The water filter container was just outside the breakfast room so it was easy to get water or coffee/tea/cocoa at all times of the day.
One big down for this was that the heater/air conditioner's fan was unable to run without it blowing out hot or cold air which was annoying since without circulating air our room on the third floor felt stifling. A secondary disappointment was the lack of counter space on both side of the sink in the bathroom; we had to share the same side and that got our supplies a bit mixed up from time to time.
I haven't stayed at the other hotels in that same area so I can't say if we'd stay there again or not.
