“We'll Pass on This One!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2008

Intro:
We decided to try our first Fairfield Inn after finding that there were no other Marriott properties in this Marine Corps town. My husband gave a talk at 6.15AM there, so we had to spend a night in order to be there on time. Here are the pluses and minuses of our stay:

Pros:
-Large, bright breakfast room with lots of food choices
-Large king room with two chairs, fridge and microwave
-Four pillows and good lighting for reading
-Located a block from the noisy highway with little road noise
-Lots of family chain restaurants and big box stores within three blocks
-Our room and bath were quite clean

Cons:
-Minimal soundproofing between rooms; could hear our neighbor cough loudly on the hour…all night
-Relatively high price (usually 100-110./ night before taxes) because it is full most nights
-Uncomfortable mattress for that high price

Conclusion:
We would not return to this property because our necks are sore from the lame mattress, and we are exhausted after a night listening to our neighbor cough and with little sleep. We may stay at the Sleep Inn next door when we have to repeat this trip. There is a new Marriott TownePlace Suite going up in Jacksonville, and that could be a possibility the next trip, too.

  • Liked — Location and large room size
  • Disliked — Lack of soundproofing and uncomfortable mattress

My family and I stayed here 8/31-9/3. The hotel was clean, rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was good. Based on comments from other family members who stayed at other nearby hotels. The room in which I stayed was as nice as the room I stayed in at The Westin Waterfront hotel in Boston. Of course the room at the Westin was one of the cheaper rooms ($200/night) but it was still a nice one. I highly recommend this hotel. I've never been dissappointed with any hotel by Marriot.

We have stayed in almost every major chain hotel in Jacksonville, NC, over the last 9 years. This hotel is by far the nicest. Perhaps because of its non-smoking policy, or perhaps because of its price, there were no misbehaving marines as guests. Many guests were vacationing families and/or kids sports teams. The military guests there were polite and probably of higher rank than guests we've seen at other hotels, and therefore, we experienced the quietest stay we've ever had in Jacksonville.
The room was nicely appointed, the bed was fabulously comfortable, and the grounds were clean, bright, and in a good state of repair. The staff was extremely accomodating to us and to other guests. They clearly wanted to satisfy their customers.
If you must visit Jacksonville, NC, then this is the place to stay!

  • Liked — No misbehaving military guests and a great bed
  • Disliked — there was nothing unsatisfactory

Fantastic clean place to stay! Staff was incredible! Courteous, friendly, attentive! We stayed one night for a family wedding, while other family members had stayed for4 nights. Management was great! Daryl (manager) made his presense know as he milled around the Inn, both inside and out! He checked the pool, hot tub, food area (breakfast include-waffle machines, fresh fruit, etc), hallways..other staff people were just as super-the receptionist was very helpful, custodian service, friendly and always responded with a smile! HIGHLY recommend staying here! (Had reservations at Quality Inn down the road-DO NOT STAY THERE!!!!) This INN is cheaper and a very much a value for the accomadations we had!

After reading the reviews for the area hotels in Jacksonville, NC I was apprehensive about our stay. We needed a place for one night because our son was returning from Iraq. I trusted the review for the Fairfield Inn and we were very happy with the hotel. The hotel is located in a nice area of town and is a totally non-smoking hotel which we considered a plus. The staff was polite, the rooms were very clean, and it was very quiet at night. We did not make it to the continental breakfast but the set up looked very nice. I would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed in nearly every hotel in Jacksonville and this is by far the best! Inspite of being full for the holiday weekend, the desk clerks, breakfast attendant and housekeepers were very cordial, speaking to every customer - making us feel very welcome. The hotel is well situated near Camp Lejeune and within walking distance of new major stores and restaurants. It is relatively new and well kept. The beds were very comfortable with an assortment of feather and foam pillows. The pool and hot tub was clean and well maintained. The only negative was that some of the exercise equipment was not functioning. I will be back!
