This was a very nice Fairfield that appeared to be recently renovated with everything fresh, clean, bright and modern. Conveniently located near both I81 and 66, on scenic Hwy 11, just about a mile north of downtown Strasburg, this hotel is easy to find. Our king room was spotless and cheerful with a flat screen tv and AC that worked well. The bed was pretty firm - if you're used to a Tempur-pedic it will seem extra firm. There is a small workout room, indoor pool and hot tub that were kid magnets. We stayed on a Saturday night which is prime time for the kids traveling to their various sporting events. So there were lots of kids around, but there was no unnecessary noise in the hotel other than occasional loud footsteps in the room above. For some reason, our room did not have a mini-fridge or microwave. Our friends in a similar king room (which was no larger than ours) DID have these amenities so I'm not sure if this is special to just some rooms or ours was unusual. A previous reviewer mentioned that none of the king rooms had the fridge/microwave - but at least one does. And they are not so tiny that it couldn't be accommodated in every room just by moving the desk/dresser furniture over a bit. Also, our phone was disconnected from the wall outlet and placed on the desk. Both ends of the cord were plugged into the phone itself and I didn't try to figure out how to fix it. These little oddities are what influenced a less than 5* rating. Normally there is more consistency among the rooms in the Fairfield brand. We did appreciate the easy to use alarm clock. The staff was extra friendly and helpful and gave us a better rate than we had booked plus a 10% off coupon for some local restaurants. The hotel was full the night before so early check in was not available, nor were we offered an upgrade as Marriott Silver elites. By the time we were able to check in there was a continuous line and it took a bit longer than it needed to with only one person on duty at the desk at this predictably busy time. The breakfast was decent with waffles, coffee, juice, yogurt, fruit, bagels, toast, Jimmy Dean sandwiches, etc. but no hot items - and the poor girl who was handling it all by herself was a bit overwhelmed. Though the hotel was busy it looked like everyone could get a seat at breakfast without a wait in the cheerful breakfast area. Overall a nice, comfortable hotel with friendly staff that has a bit of room to improve.
King rooms are the smallest, and apparently most of them do not have the requisite mini-fridge/micro...
