“Clean, convenient and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

My wife, son and I visited Carlisle recently and we were very pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was clean, the climate control was accurate, the beds were comfortable, and the hotel was quiet throughout the night. The property is relatively new and in a quiet area of town. We were convenient to I-81, but not so close that it disturbed our night's sleep. The property is new. The hotel is about 10 minutes from historic downtown Carlisle and Dickinson College.

Breakfast was provided with the room, a self-serve breakfast buffet with an assortment of breakfast breads, fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, make-it-yourself waffles, microwaveable breakfast sandwiches, juices, milk, tea and coffee. There's more than enough here to satisfy anyone's taste for breakfast. All items were fresh and were kept well-stocked by staff.

We visit Carlisle a few times of year and always stay at the Fairfield. The help is always very friendly and always willing to drop what they are doing to answer a question or provide assistance. The rooms are neat, clean and the HVAC units are very modern and not overly noisy. Each room has a flat screen television and the room stay comes with a free breakfast. Good value for the money. Would definitely recommend to others. The best part is that the entire hotel is "smoke free".

My kids and I stopped for one night here, and it was the most pleasant stay! We arrived just before 9 p.m. and there were fresh cookies and a smiling, welcoming woman at the front desk. The rate was very reasonable for all the amenities at this hotel. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, even late that night! It was nice to have a cup of tea to enjoy in our room that night, as well. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms roomy, and the beds were comfy. Our breakfast was very good, too. Every staff member was just as friendly as could be. My kids didn't want to leave! I will stay there again in a heartbeat if ever we're up that way.

Room Tip: We had a fridge and microwave in our double queen room on the 3rd floor. Very useful! Our room ove...

This hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast was very good. We stayed overnight the weekend of the big heat wave and enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. We had a double queen room with very comfortable beds. We would definitely stay here again.

I have to say from start to finish this Hotel was one of the most comfortable stays in years. The staff was a pleasure from their friendly greetings when we walked in the door till the moment we walked out. The suite that we stayed in was exceptionally clean and roomy with 2 TV's and the most comfortable beds. Even impressed that they had an Ipod docking station with stereo to charge our phones. The mornings breakfast was nice with a selection of bagels, pastries, hot and cold cereals, and a Waffle making station. 5 stars from us.

Front desk and breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. Bedroom and bathroom were one of the cleanest I've seen.....love it when the tub drains while showering!

Needed a hotel in this area for a weekend stay. The location was easy to find off the interstate (closer to the exit for Allen Rd) although there is some construction in the area which can make spotting the turn onto Alexander Springs Rd a little confusing.

Had a king "suite" which in budget hotels tends to be a small dividing wall between the sleeping area and an area with a couch. It was clean and large enough though so no issues. Beds and linens were clean and comfortable. Large bathroom. All in all, the room was very clean and the room was not worn in any respect.

Self-serve breakfast was included and was mostly cold foods with hot food options being prepackaged breakfast sandwiches you could heat up, make-your-own waffles or oatmeal. Only dislike with breakfast was that bowls, utensils and cups were disposable plastic.

The hotel appears to be on the newer side which is good and parking was plentiful and free although a car show in town the same weekend left nary a parking spot one night, but there was one left. Also the car show caused rates to be shockingly high for the area that weekend and that was a bit of a bitter pill to swallow, but most of the hotels in the area seemed to hike the prices up so it wasn't just this location. As the purpose of the trip was a graduation ceremony I had no choice as to the timing of the trip and it was bad luck that this was a peak weekend due to the car show.

There is a pool and an exercise room that looked reasonably equipped for this type of hotel but I didn't use it so I can't comment.

Right off the highway, but I didn't hear any highway noise.

Wireless is supposedly only in the lobby and common areas but as the room was on the 2nd floor I was able to pick up the WiFi signal. Otherwise, there is a wired connection so be prepared for that if your intention is to pick up the WiFi signal in your room with a mobile device or iPad. Laptops are obviously no issue with the Ethernet cable provided in the room.

Should be rated better than the #5 hotel, with my only dislike being the disposable plates, cups and utensils and also very small bath towels.
