“Great value for hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

I stayed overnight at this hotel from landing at Newark airport. They have shuttles from P4 which can be accessed by airtrain. First of all, for a hotel that costs $ 124.00, which includes parking, free shuttle to the airport, a good continental breakfast, a swimming pool and hot tub, exercise facilities, and being in proximity to a shopping centre in Newark, I would actually recommend using this hotel for the value you get for the money. It did not feel ghetto.

The swimming pool is actually a small pool that goes about 4.5 feet deep. It does not have a life-guard, and I wouldn't recommend putting the head under it since I'm not 100% sure if it is maintained as well as a city-pool. It does have a hot tub suana and exercise room. There is no change room so you have to put a bath-robe and go into the washroom nearby, and shower up in your own hotel room. Again, if you are going because of a swimming pool experience there is no deep end in that pool or diving boards -- just a shallow end-like swimming pool.

The continental breakfast offers a wide variety of choice of muffins, yogurt, fruits, waffles, toast, eggs, cereal, juices, and compared to other hotels I've seen, this makes it for great value for the money.

On the negative side of it, it is close to the airport and highways so you will hear some noise. They have screen doors that are next to the breakfast and the swimming pool. If a hotel patron were to open these doors during the winter, and you have light clothes on during the breakfast or are partially naked in the pools then you will get a draft.

One of the complaints I would have is their shuttle service. First of all, while Fairfield is on the "Mariott" hotel's website, do not let it confuse you with other Mariott LIberty Airport shuttles that also arive. We went on a shuttle that said "Mariott Liberty Airport" believing this was going to our hotel but it went to another Mariott hotel. The shuttle bus driver expalined there were five different Mariotts around there and Fairfield Inn is also owned by Mariott. This driver put us back to P4 and then we waited for the "Fairfield Inn" shuttle bus. We had expected to see another shuttle bus similar to the Mariott, but with the words "Fairfield Inn" written on the side instead.

After a while of waiting, I decided to call the hotel to enquire as to when the next shuttle bus would arrive. Nbody would pick up the phone at the hotel when I called on my cell phone. I had called several times, and after waiting for quite a while and not seeing a shuttle bus. Their number is not listed on the phone dial at P4 terminal. (They have three phones with a bunch of extensions leading to different hotels that are in the area, but Fairfield Inn is not actually listed on any of those phones!!!) So, I actually had that "stranded" feeling that my credit card was already dinged for that hotel because it was past the cancellation time, but was not sure if a shuttle bus would be there. The prospect of booking another hotel while being charged on my credit card for this hotel because a shuttle bus may not be arriving had made me feeling sick momentarily.

Eventually, the shuttle bus came after what appeared like a bit of a wait. It really looked more like a taxi rather than a shuttle bus. The word "fairfield" were so small, like you would have to squeeze in to read it at the side of the door so it may actually be easy to miss this shuttle if you don't read the side door carefully. It won't be a big elegant shuttle bus with the words "Fairfield" in large letters.

But at the end of the day we went there. It would be more reassuring if we had some sort of contact with someone when we were at the airport. So, unfortunately, that, along with the screen doors located near the breakfast/pool would ding this down by two to make it an average experience. When you are arriving from an airplane into a foreign place, it really makes a difference to have someone else pick up the phone for something as simple as when a shuttle bus would be arriving.

However, we got nice shuttle bus drivers who took us very close to the car rental location as opposed to P4 when we wanted to rent a car. The hotel staff were also generally nice and I didn't have any real complaints beyond the above issue, and I don't think that's enough to wreck the overall value I got for what I paid.

So, if having support is important when travelling, I may recommend paying more money for another Mariott around the airport, where you'll get a big shuttle bus that has the words "Mariott" on the side, and customer support when you land at the airport. If you want to save a few bucks, then the old adage that "you get what you pay for" applies here and there may be a few bumps. But overall, you do get value for the money and that is why I would rate it as very good.

In perspective, I really do not want to throw the baby out with the bathwater so despite what I may have wrote above, I would still recommend this hotel and rate it four stars because I do think it's great value compared to other hotels and I would consider myself to be a naive sort of traveller so I have to allow some latitutde for that.

The shuttle times are as follows: 15/45 at the airport per hour, and 00/30 at the hotel...30 minute intervals.

I stayed for one night due to layover (9 pm flight in; checkout 5 am next morning). Shuttle from P4 (take skytrain at airport) to hotel runs on the :15 and :45. With reservation check-in was quick and easy. A wake up call was on time and my early morning reservation with free shuttle was taken at check in. There is free wifi and I assume breakfast but not served at 5 am. The rooms are spacious and clean but extremely dry. Limited toiletries in bathroom. There's a fridge and microwave in sitting area. All in all a good stay and easy access with shuttle. Driving to the hotel yourself may proof a bit frustrating as the roads don't seem easily accessible. But I didn't drive so take that for what it's worth

Just stayed there for a quick overnight on route to St. Martens but the basic room was really cozy very very comfortable bed and linens~ the coffee maker worked perfectly. The shuttle was on time... just a great hotel but expensive $300.00 for a basic room... I really thought that was high~

The rooms are very comfortable, good size, modern and clean. My only complaint is that the van takes to the airport or the rail link only ever half an hour.

This is located very close to the Newark Airport and I stayed here overnight to take an early flight the next day morning. If you are with kids and want to avoid the hassle of waking too early for a flight find a parking spot at the airport and all the other issues, this is a perfect location. The parking fee is a wee bit lesser than the 'in airport' parking although not cheap. On my return my car wouldn't start as I had a left a light on or something. The folks at the front desk had a ready 'jump start' kit that made my day. Overall good hotel, good service, convenient location.

Was tempted to go 3 stars, but our room was nice and clean and the staff was really nice. Two big problems though: 1. This place is impossible to find. Go head and try to plug that address into your GPS or phone. Both with laugh at you. 2. The rooms are heated/cooled by one of those big blower units under the window and next to your bed. My wife and I woke up every time the thing kicked on (we ended up just shutting it off).

The park and fly price was really good, and it's tough to find a good airport option. I would probably stay here again.
