“Very Nice Chain Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We stayed here one night. The receptionist was very friendly. The room was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was delightful, including eggs and bacon. Parking was convenient.
We recommend this motel.

Let me begin by saying this was my first stay at a Fairfield Inn. The hotel is located right off off a busy roadway but road noise was not heard within the room. Check-In was efficient however that is where it ended. It was a busy night and there is only 1 elevator so it took us about 10 minutes to make it to our third floor room. Room was nice, bathroom however seems to have been recently redone. Noisy fan came on everytime the light was turned on. Loud enough to wake the dead. Toilet although bolted down rocked everytime you sat on it. I think the floor tiles are not level. The following morning we were rudely awakened beginning at 6:45 with children running up and down the hallway this also occurred on Sunday morning. But the worst was when we entered the hotel through the door near the outdoor pool. We parked our car in the back and entered/exited though this doorway 5 times during our stay and each time was greeted with employees smoking right at the doorway. The hotel is non-smoking but I did not find it appealing to have to walk through it each time. It would be understandable if guests were doing it but it was hotel staff. We will stay elsewhere on future visits. Sorry Marriott.

This is an OK property in an awkward location, especially if you have business downtown. You are practically in a mall next Home Depot and similar stores. Downtown Charlottesville is a good 10 minutes away with no traffic. When I travel I try to look for Fairfield Inns as they provide a good place to sleep at a good value, but at this place we did not get the usual homey feeling as we usually get at other Fairfields. I have stayed at dozens of Fairfiled Inns and this ranks in the barely average category.

Stayed at the Fairfield Inn for one night before our early reservations at Monticello. Nice, clean property. Location was fine for us, a nice drive into the town to walk around the shops. Having the Applebee's within walking distance was very convenient. The breakfast in the morning was more than enough for our family with many choices. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

This is a great hotel. Clean, modern (recently redone maybe). The service was prompt and great and everyone was really friendly. Rooms are nice, would be even better with a mini-refrigerator. Otherwise, I don't really have much to add other than the following:
- there is no convenient or nice place to go running outdoors
- there is a grocery store next door and an Applebee's in front of the hotel
- breakfast includes waffles, scrambled and hardboiled eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, coffee, juice, cereal and milk, instant grits and instant oatmeal

Overall - plan to be back.

We had to stay overnight on a quick visit to UVA. The hotel was clean and quiet. Check-in when we arrived as very efficient. I walked in and had my room key within about two minutes. The room was a bit small, but very clean and neat. It certainly met our needs. The beds were comfortable and we were able to get needed rest. Continental breakfast is included. I would say breakfast was average. There was not a lot of options, but the choices were sufficient.

Location was good. Just minutes from UVA campus. The only catch was finding the hotel. If you're looking for it, turn into the parking lot towards the food lion. It's to the right of the Food Lion and behind the Applebees. We missed it the first time.

I usually try to stay in Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Springhill Suites or Residence Inns. It's been several years since I've stayed in a Fairfield Inn.
The hotel was a little difficult to find since it has to be accessed through a Food Lion parking lot. Check in was very fast and courteous. Missy, the desk clerk even gave me a bag of chocolates for being a Marriott Rewards member. I was using a certificate for a free night.
My room was a king suite. The room itself was smaller than the usual rooms I stay in, but perfectly comfortable. The room had a king bed, small desk, pull out sofa, 2 TVs, fridge and microwave. There is a very nice and convenient suitcase platform/furniture in the room. Overall the furniture was in very good condition and a pleasing design. There is a small wall that separates the bed area from the sofa area and light sneaking under the door can not be seen from bed. There is a tub/ shower in the bathroom and the sink is outside the bathroom. There was a slight mildew smell in the bathroom, but only after taking a shower. I've experienced this before in other hotels and suspect it is the textured wallpaper.
The hotel was full, but it was very quiet.
Only 2 negatives were experienced. The toilet did not flush unless the handle was held down. The pillows on the bed were not very comfortable, but the thick towels in the bathroom made up for the pillows, in my wife's opinion.
Tip: The lights around the outdoor swimming pool were very bright and some light would enter the room once dark. Consider asking for a room facing the front of the hotel if light tends to bother you. However, the side of the hotel faces the busy road. I don't know if any road noise would be heard.
Breakfast was adequate. Not a large selection of hot items. Scrambled eggs and sausage patties. Tiny boxes of cereal. Good selection of yogurt, fresh fruit, muffins, bagels, etc. Good selection of teas. My wife was disappointed that there was not fresh oatmeal, but only the sugary envelopes of oatmeal. The breakfast area was staffed with several employees and they were very attentive. Seriously, they provided excellent service.
Overall, this was a nice stay and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: LIghts from the outdoor pool are bright and some light sneaks in around the curtains. Consider aski...
