“Good location at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I were looking for a nice place near the Riverwalk and Market Square without having to pay the high price tag. This place is it. About a 3-5 minute walk to market square, 3 minute drive to the Riverwalk and the Alamo, and there is a trolley stop located right next to the hotel. (It's about a 10 minute walk to the Riverwalk, but best not hoof it at night). The staff is incredibly friendly, the room was clean and modern, and the beds extremely comfortable. They also give you a map and a packet of nearby places and restaurants to check out. My advice, don't go to those restaurants- total tourist traps. Go check out the local spots for great Tex-Mex. That said, if you want a nice hotel in a good location at a good price, this is the place. And I have to say again, extremely friendly staff. I was really impressed by that. I would absolutely stay here again.

I would never stay here again due to uncontrollable noise levels at 3 AM. Also, doors slamming about every 5 secs. At this time of the morning. Bathroom walls had spots on them but bed was comfortable.

The hotel was refurbished a short while ago and it is crispy new! The staff is super friendly and helpfull, especially Niya. She could not stop trying to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We were so impressed with her and San Antonio that we decided to extend our stay.
Very well appointed rooms and the beds super comfortable!
Good variety of breakfast goodies. Free coffee all day, apples and bananas available all day.
What a lovely place, surely recomendable.

At first we were not impressed with the area hotel was located in, but it was a safe area, and just a short walk to the Market shopping district. Hotel needs some modern touches. We took a room across from the elevator, that chimed all night. Good location for travel to attractions, especially the Mission Trail.

Very clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is included and they have a nice variety of items to choose from. Close to Market Square, but a long walk to downtown/Alamo/Riverwalk. Beds are very comfortable too.

I sent 17 students with 4 chaperones to the State science fair on March 27th - 29th. I needed a safe hotel that could accommodate the students and chaperones. Fairfield Inn was wonderful. I was able to book the 14 rooms through Alexandra Singer. She handles the large groups for the hotels under the Marriott chain near the Market Square. My large group arrived at the hotel and registration went very smoothly. Ms. Singer gave my chaperones thank you cards for staying at the Fairfield. She was there at registration to ensure a smooth transition. The rooms were neat and clean. My students thought the best part of their stay was the awesome breakfast. They had an excellent stay at the Fairfield. I will definitely book again at this hotel.

We had a lovely one week stay here. Jennifer the breakfast attendant was friendly and helpful while stocking and cleaning the breakfast room. Fresh milk, yogurt and fruit cup were welcome additions to the usual breakfast fare. A hearty breakfast meant that we maximized our visits to local attractions. Niya the front desk supervisor was friendly and informative. Not once were we directed to the tourist traps on the Riverwalk when we asked for suggestions. The location is perfect - five bus routes literally on the same block gets you to Seaworld, the Zoo, Pearl Brewery, Northgate Mall, At&T Center. Also located within walking distance (ten minutes or less) to the Alamo area, Market Square, King William area, South Town and Main Square. Free wifi, laundry facilities on site, flat screen TV, microwave and fridge, did I mention free?

We are recommending this location to our friends and family.
