“a good rest!”

A good rest after getting there from Europe...big and clean rooms, friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Also, close to many restaurants and shops.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2008

A nice hotel, just like most other Marriott Courtyard type hotels. There is a Marriott Courtyard just adjacent in fact. The hotels are right next to a large shopping mall with many chain restaurants nearby as well. Downtown Scranton is about 5-10 minutes away on an expressway. Despite being close to the mall and highways the room was very quiet. The hotel has a small indoor pool. Room was clean; bed was good; air conditioner worked. The only negative was a bit of a musty or smoky smell that my wife noticed. I'm not sure if it was a non smoking room we were given, but there were no ashtrays, so I assume it probably was supposed to be non smoking.

Breakfast is included. Breakfast is in a small room off the lobby; not really a buffet, just a collection of some rolls and muffins, yogurt, cereal and Jimmy Dean egg sandwiches that can be microwaved. Adequate, but not what you'd want to eat every day.

I used my points to stay at this small hotel overnight while traveling on the East Coast. Great staff, nice beds - only problem was finding it which was not easy. Otherwise nice stay.

Stayed at the Fairfield Inn Dickson City/Scranton for the 2008 St. Pat's Parade with some friends, and it was a great location for that. Plenty nearby to do, lots of choices for eating & shopping. Rooms were basic, clean, quiet, satisfactory, and what you would expect for the price. They have mini fridges. The beds are very comfortable. Maybe a tiny bit dingy in the halls and elevators. There is an indoor pool which is located right by the main lobby. This hotel is small in size. I would stay here again when in the area, especially for the right price.

the rooms were decent. The breakfast room was on the small side. A waffle maker made the room uncomfortably hot in the morning. On the plus side, at least the breakfast bar had a waffle maker.

We have stayed here many, many times. We've always had a very positive experience. The staff is great, rooms clean, breakfast food varied & the housekeeping staff does a great job. This is my favorite Fairfield Inn. Everyone's so friendly & helpful with area information. If you're anywhere near Scranton try this hotel. You won't be disappointed!
