“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2007

We were looking for a simplistic, affordable hotel in Memphis for a weekend retreat from our hometown and this one fit the bill. After reading the reviews, I was impressed that this location would be a solid choice.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very helpful person at the front desk. After asking what type of room (king), floor (third) and location (back side, away from the interstate - yes, you do want to stay on the back side) we wanted, he proceeded to try and honor those requests. After finding that the only kings he had third floor/back were king suites, he immediately proceeded to upgrade us to a suite at no additional charge over that of the regular king rate...a great start to our weekend.

But that wasn't the end. We found everything to be in great shape, very clean. The wireless internet service worked perfectly. And every member of the staff seemed very friendly - heard "have a nice day" each morning as we exited the free continental breakfast and the hotel.

It has very convenient to access both downtown Memphis (via I-40 West) and the major shopping areas on the northeast side as well.

Bottom line - we were very happy with our stay here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2007

We stayed here on a weekend trip with family. We needed three adjoining rooms (children in party) which they would not guarantee when we booked the rooms, but I found out that this is standard (if irritating) with virtually all chains. At check-in they were very accommodating and we got the rooms we needed. My family (two adults, two kids) had a suite which was great--plenty of room, clean and reasonable privacy. My in-laws had one double-double room and one king room and I thought they seemed a little cramped. For $10-20 more go for the suite! Amenities: Good a/c, it was a little iffy on maintaining a constant temperature, but was not noisy. Towels were too small, and rough and not very absorbent. Indoor pool was small but great for kids--pool area was very clean and always well-equipped with towels. Breakfast was fine: the usual waffles, yogurt, bagels, etc. They actually had protein which was a plus and very good coffee. Location is very convenient to 40 and Sam Cooper. About 10-12 minutes to Beale St. area on Sam Cooper. The area was a little rundown in parts, but I did not feel unsafe. I like being downtown but you get more for your money here.

September 3, 2007 stay: This Fairfield Inn was the least expensive when I checked in with the prepaid option. Though its location is a little off, I thought it was cozy and effective. It is located at the end of the stretch with several other hotels/motels on the low to mid range, and getting on/off the expressway was easy. The property looked and felt spotlessly clean. Bedding and amenities were good. Although I did not use the pool, it looked well maintained. The front desk was outstanding, and performed at its best all the time I was there. Wireless internet was available, but was a little slow. Nothing much to eat in the immediate surrounding except for fast food (Tops BBQ stood out!) Driving to the other side of the expressway however opened up significant eating opportunities. Only suggestion, try to get a room facing opposite the expressway. Though well sound insulated, you can still hear the traffic.

  • Liked — Staff
  • Disliked — Too close to expressway traffic noise

The entire staff was very friendly. Perhaps they read the previous revue but when we were there they could not have been any friendlier. After we checked in I asked the staff for a suggestion on good Memphis BBQ and they printed out directions for me to Corky's. The directions made it comfortable to drive off and not feel like I was going to get lost.
The room was very clean. The A/C worked VERY well. That is very important to me. The bathroom was clean. Beds were comfortable as well as the pillows. We only spent one night here as we were going to Knoxville, the hotel is less than 5 minutes from I-40. In the morning the continental breakfast was excellent. The pastries were fresh. Cereal was available and you could make your own waffles if you wanted to.
The hotel also had a computer to use. It was helpful to me so I could check my email. There is no fee to use the computer.
I was very happy with my stay and would have no problems staying here again.

Very good bed and linens in the king room. Make sure you request a room on the SOUTH side of the building. The north side is very close to I-40.

There are several restaurants nearby for breakfast; Waffle House, Cracker Barrel, etc. Gas stations, too.

Only negatives --
The parking lot is mostly on the back, north side. It is dark and confined, so park near or under a light.

Staff was a little tunnel visioned both at evening check in and morning check out. At both times I helped other guests who needed assistance (doors, dropped food) while the only visible staff person had his head in the computer. The lady picking up in the breakfast area in the morning didn't say a word or give a smile to any of the dozen or so guests.

  • Liked — The bed and linens were excellent
  • Disliked — poor parking lot security, unattentive staff

The hotel staff was friendly.
The pool was well heated, rooms were clean, beds were typical, breakfast was fresh. Only complaint was the shower could have been a bit warmer.
All else was great!
