“Enjoyed my stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I agree with the other reviews that the staff was friendly. The room was fine and quiet. I particularly like some of the smaller touches - vending machines with goggles for the pool and diet Snapple, Lean Cuisine dinners for sale in the lobby plus some Healthy Choice soups, (a microwave and fridge in every room), healthy choices for breakfast - turkey sausage, hard boiled eggs, fresh, peeled grapefruit segments sitting on ice, light yogurt, and low fat granola. For non-dieters there was also regular sausage, scrambled eggs, waffles, muffins, etc. and small pizzas and regular frozen meals for sale in the lobby. at breakfast I also appreciated the fresh bananas and apples in the lobby. Non-dieters will appreciate the warm chocolate chip cookies in the evening. You can find USA Today newspapers by the front desk. All the nice touches add up to a warm, fuzzy feeling and a good stay.

A sharp, clean, attractive, updated facility. Most notably, a very friendly and helpful staff. I wish more hotels I've visited in this price range were this good. It is close to the mall and restaurants, and only a short bit away from downtown and the waterfront stuff.

This hotel is conveniently located near the mall and lots of restaurants, however it is a very short drive to get downtown Duluth. The hotel was priced so much better than the ones near the lake, that I had to stay here, and was not disappointed! The staff was super friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was awesome. Usually continental breakfasts don't offer as much healthy choices as this one. Their workout facility was small, but the equipment was perfect, and I loved how the treadmills had tv's on them. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor away from the elevators for a nice, quiet stay.

Although we certainly had numerous options on our recent weekend visit to the Duluth area, we were completely blown away by the overall cleanliness and friendly staff at the Fairfield Inn. Ideally located across from the Mall and surrounded by popular restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised by the helpful staff that assisted us with whatever we needed. Needless to say that without a doubt we'll be going back to this comfortable spot, as well as recommending it to our friends. Thanks primarily to the management and staff.

Room Tip: Buffalo Wild Wings in walking distance is a fun place for families to eat.

Family came to stay for a weekend visit and slept peacefully. They usually stay at the Black Bear Casino, but were happy they picked a location closer to everything. Excellent customer service all around. They look forward to staying there again in the future!

I stayed here over the weekend and was definitely taken care of by the excellent staff- from Ellen at booking, Amber and Marshall at the front desk, to housekeeping and breakfast, everything was very nice. Marshall went out of his way to make our stay special and comfortable... thank you!
The rooms were quiet with an excellent air/ventilation system; the beds were extremely comfortable and the Fitness Center was well-equipped and updated... no complaints at all!

I just completed a one-night stay at the hotel and enjoyed it very much. I would definitley go back to the Fairfield if I find myself in the area again. The hotel has been updated and has a new feel on the inside throughout. The hotel was very clean, we had zero issues with our room. The location is also pretty good. It's just a short drive away from the downtown attractions and there are a lot of restaurants around, some of them are even walkable. Parking and breakfast are both free.

I was especially impressed with the staff. Each employee I spoke with was very friendly and helpful. The clerk who checked me in took the time to welcome me to town and describe some of the local attractions and restaurants I should check out, as well as giving me a map of the area. That was a nice touch that I haven't seen at other Marriott's.
