Let me start off by saying that I wanted to use Marriott reward points to book my stay. I normally stay at the Courtyard Marriott across the street but for some reason that property was not available. The Lafayette Fairfield Inn is not quite as upscale as the Courtyard or Holiday Inn Express but is more than adequate in covering the essentials. The property is a bit dated, but in good repair and kept clean. I read through some of the previous reviews about cleanliness, or lack of, and did not observe any of those characteristics on my stay. The only complaint I have was the wall mounted HVAC rattled annoyingly anytime it came on which wasn't until the wee hours of the night. (Room 300). The staff is very friendly and the breakfast bar offering included eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, breakfast sandwiches, fruit, cereal, bagels, English muffin etc. etc. The hotel location is in the middle of big box shopping and lots of restaurants with easy access off of route 65. For those who have business with or students who are at Purdue you’ll want to make note of your travel time. It can take 10 minutes non rush hour or 20 minutes or more to get to campus during rush. Not complaining, just something folks should be aware of if deadline pressed.
