“Good choice slightly out of hustle and bustle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

On west end of town, this hotel is not at hub of activity. But the distance is short and location makes for quiet stay. The only complaint is the noisy A/C unit. Mine cycled between complete silence and 'I can't hear TV/radio' levels.

If coming from the west, signage come upon you quickly, so pay attention.

Needed a place late on a Sat night and booked this thru TripAdvisor. Pretty new and very clean and quiet. Just what we were looking for. Clerk at front desk was kind of clueless in helping us find a pizza joint late but we managed since we were right near campus. Hot tub and pool were excellent. Would stay there again.

This is the third time we've stayed at this hotel while visiting our daughter. Never fails to satisfy. Rooms are always clean, breakfast is fresh and plentiful, and location is excellent. The staff at this, and any Marriott as far as I'm concerned, is always attentive, helpful and very professional. Check in is always quick and easy as is check out. Beds are quite comfortable and always hot water available for showers. If you stay it this location, a must try is Otto's right next door!

We stayed here on our way to Atlantic City. We arrived late at night and headed out fairly early. However, while there, we enjoyed out stay. The front desk staff was very good and the room was nice. Nothing too extravagant but a perfect place to get some rest before continuing out trip. We got a great rate though Priceline so we couldl't complain one bit! We were very pleased!

I have stayed at this Fairfield Inn in the winter for a swim meet. Had a king suite with a pull out sofa which I thought was nice, BUT, when it was time to sleep, I was surprised! Pull out sofa blanket was full of hair! (and not just head hair either) yuck! Called down to the front desk and right away, I got a replacement blanket, but needless to say, when I showed the girl, her exact word was "wow!". I let this go as the rest of the stay was nice and the breakfast was great.

My recent stay however, was a different story. Besides the good breakfast, everything else just went downhill. We were there for a swim meet and the hotel was fully booked. We arrived early but couldn't check in at that time. The supervisor gave us a key to use the pool area and we were able to have breakfast. That was very nice, and that kind of hospitality is what brought us back.

We left for the meet, and came back later in the day to check in, no problem. Went up to the room and found no fridge. I called down to ask for one, but they were out of them. OK, I brought down the food I had to be put in the kitchen fridge. We left again, and came back later that night. I wanted something hot to drink after a long day, so I made a cup of coffee just to find out that they had cold coffee out. Oh well, we went up to the room to sleep. As I was fixing the bed covers for my children, I found a blood stain on one of the covers. Are you kidding me?! I called down to the front desk and said "I think there is a blood stain on the cover", and the woman replied "okaaay", (I felt as if she was saying, 'and what do you want me to do about it?'). I repeated, "there is blood on the cover!". So she replied, we have a full house and blankets have not been washed. I told here, "so what should I do?", she replied, "you can take it off if you want" "I will try to find another one for you". Of course nothing came, and we had to sleep with a dirty and disgusting cover. I also am a silver elite member and I practically had to beg the next morning for a late checkout. Next time I will probably look elsewhere to stay and not waste $112 at this hotel. I also advise that if this hotel can not manage to accommodate a full house where every guest is equally comfortable, then they should not do it.

Hello Fleura99,
I would first like to apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay.
Please be assured that cleanliness issues are few and far between here at the Fairfield. We strive to provide each guest with a clean room, and we are sorry that we did not live up to this standard.
We often sell out during event weekends, and there are certain amenities that are only available in limited quantities. We do have extra blankets and refrigerators available upon request. They are available on a first come first serve basis. Our sister property, The Springhill Suites does have refrigerators in each of their rooms. If you require a refrigerator during your travels they are a hotel I highly recommend.
As always, thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to provide us with this valued feedback.

Never a suprise, always what I expect from a Marriott hotel, breakfest out early and available for the early risers like me, room was in excellent condition, the bed was big and comfortable, large bathroom, good location, would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in a good location, never had a problem with any room I have stayed in.
