“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

Have stayed here many times in past but was first time this year. The rooms are not clean. Someone elses hair on night stand and in shower, sheets have holes, tracks in windows are grimy and filthy, blinds have shreds and tears, bathroom faucets are dirty, dirt under the sink, and this was in one of the suite rooms. I would recommend the Courtyard or Hampton instead. I have also stayed at both recently and was much better. Thankfully the Fairfield has a great staff! But the hotel is in need of a good cleaning and updating.

I'll start with the positive - the beds were great. New mattresses and nice linens, and if you're just looking for a comfortable place to sleep, sometimes that's all that matters!

The rest of the hotel was just okay; an experience I would have felt comfortable paying $60-$70 for, but not the $100 that we actually paid. The bathroom area was clean but in need of serious updating. I expected something more modern for the price. The rest of the room had a layer of dust in every area that requires bending down to reach- the bottoms of chairs, under the shelf, etc. These details become important when traveling with a small child as you spend a lot of time on the floor!

We used the pool and the setup was nice but it was just a little bit grungy around the edges. I would never use a public hot tub but it was hard not to notice the 4 inch border of build-up above the water line.

We did a lot of research online before booking this hotel and didn't find anything else better, so although I wouldn't recommend it to a friend, it's certainly adequate if you need to stay in Valparaiso, just nothing to write home about.

This hotel is absolutely wonderful. It is, however, showing its age, but the staff knows how to treat their guests. Everyone from the General Manager to the Maintenance man were helpful to me. Dennis at the front desk greeted me with a smile. And Jessica (Supervisor) bid me a fond farewell with a nice, cold bottle of water (great touch!)! I would definitely stay here again. Jennifer (GM) is running a great hotel!

Traveling with family 3 adults , 2 kids on family business. We arrived early , our rooms were available, and were given our rooms early. KIds used the pool facilities before we left for the afternoon family business. The rooms were excellent, no complaints, clean with ample towels, washcloths, etc for everyone. Had a roll away bed brought up for kids. The complimentary breakfast the following morning was great. More than one would expect for a complimentary offering. Great selection and amount to chose from.
We really enjoyed the stay and facility!! The desk personnel were very polite, helpful, and 'professional'.

This was very refreshing from the time we can through the door. Very professional and courteous staff. Very clean. Our Suite was awesome for the price. We came from the Best Western down the street after leaving due to severe mold in our room and in the hotels. This was great for us to decide to stay at Fairfield Inn as we never thought about staying there before. Room had large bathroom, desk, couch, two tv's, crib for free that was brand new, pool, and location was phenomenal. After learning that most of the hotels in Valparaiso have mold and spores, this was worth every penny for satisfaction and peace of mind.

Stayed for five days while searching for homes in the Valpro area. Nice location with easy access to US30, SR49, and area. However, front staff unhelpfull and if you complained or asked for any thing extra (e.g., can I actually have 4 hand towels for a room with two people) they would 'clear' your room card on you. Nothing like walking alway to the third floor just to have to turn around and go back down to get the keys reset. The standard response is you kept your key card to close to your wallet, or what ever, but in our case we had two cards in different places yet they some how 'stopped' working at the same time.

3rd floor smells like someone peed on the floor, faint but unmistakable smell.

  • Liked — access to US30 and SR49
  • Disliked — staff
