This is a typical Fairfield Inn - modern, clean, and near as I can tell laid out almost exactly like every other Fairfield Inn in the country. Everything in my room was as expected, it was relatively quiet, and the bed was comfortable. Also like most Fairfields, it's convenient to the interstate system (I-80 and I-57 in this case). It's also close to several chain restaurants. Front desk staff were polite but uninvolved. The young woman who managed breakfast, though, was both chipper and polite all three mornings I ate there. She hustled to keep everything running smoothly.
A few gripes. First, my room reeked of cigarette smoke when I checked in and I mentioned this on my way out for the day. It continued to stink the entire time I was there and I'm pretty sure someone on the floor was smoking up a storm (to be clear, Marriotts are all non-smoking). Mentioned it again at checkout and the desk agent said she'd try try to get the manager to comp me a night. Either she didn't ask or the manager said "no" as I was billed for the entire stay. Not a real big deal, but don't offer if it really ain't gonna happen.
Second, water pressure in the shower was feeble at best and the toilet seat wasn't actually bolted on. It came off every time I raised it.
Finally, despite the hustling of the young woman in charge, the breakfast offering was lacking. Greasy sausage patties, scrambled eggs, make your own waffles (but no batter after 8AM two days), muffins, and cereal. There was also a small thing of canned fruit salad and a small fridge with yogurt and milk. I saw rack with a few bananas and apples one morning. I've stayed at Fairfield properties with veritable breakfast buffets, with eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, real fresh fruit every day, etcetera. This is not one of those. The coffee - Bold Beginnings - isn't all that good, either. But, it's enough to get you going and it's included in the room charge, so, really, how can I complain?
All things considered, given the other options available, I'd definitely stay here again if in the area. It's a nice, mid-level motel and convenient to most of south Chicagoland. I'd just keep my expectations in check.
