“Adequate but nothing special and small rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This motel is in the heart of downtown Flagstaff and was clearly filled with skiiers and snowboarders the first weekend in January when we arrived. (Snowbowl, the top ski area in northern Arizona and about 16 miles away from the Fairfield, had just opened some days prior.)

No suites are available at this Fairfield, and the rooms are pretty cramped -- for example, the desk is situated right by the front door to the room, and you have to move out of the way if someone is exiting or entering the room. The toilet closet with the tub/shower combo is particularly cramped. Last comment on the rooms: the carpets are filthy and in dire need of replacing.

Also, if you frequently stay at the Marriott Fairfield brand hotels, do note this particular location only offers a continental breakfast, although microwavable Jimmy Dean egg/bacon/cheese sandwiches are available. On a Saturday morning in January, though, the breakfast room was jam-packed for several hours, and we had trouble getting a table.

The exercise room contains one treadmill, one stationary bike and one stair master. No free weights, mats, stability balls or anything of that ilk.

The staff is by far the best part of the Fairfield..... super nice and caring. I wouldn't have expected a call from the front desk 20 minutes after we checked in, asking if everything were okay. What a lovely touch. All in all, the price is reasonable (we paid $99 per night for a room with two double beds), and if you're not in need of pampering or luxury, the Fairfield in Flagstaff should suit your needs.

Room Tip: All the rooms on the first and second floors exit to the outside. If you don't want to go outsid...

Our stay at this hotel was OK. Busy due to the skiers but no problems to speak of. Am not a big fan of outside entrance to your room but the hotel was our choice but will look for something different when in Flagstaff. Breakfast was very good and the staff was very friendly.

Because we travel a great deal, provided we have comfortable beds and pleasant surrounding and service, we are not big on absolute luxury and over-the-top everything or anything. Here we found the perfect match and balance. Located with easy access to the freeway south to Phoenix, we liked everything about the Fairfield Inn. The entire process of check-in was seamless and fast and all the front desk staff were extremely efficient and very friendly and personable. They asked about our room preference and we ended up with one on the ground floor, very close to amenities but also very quiet. The room was very comfortable, as was the bed and although the bathroom was compact, the shower was great and the space perfectly adequate. We also appreciated the seniors' rate, allocated at the time of online booking, which made our stay extremely reasonable in price. Front desk staff also made recommendations for dinner at a nearby restaurant, which proved to be very good and, as well, within easy walking distance. Breakfast is included in the room rate and allowed plenty of choice through self-serve options. Generally we could not fault anything here and accordingly, commend the staff and management very highly.

Room Tip: A ground level room allows easy-access parking at the door, perhaps on the pool side and away from t...

Front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful when we checked in. Fresh cookies and other snacks are available there. We noticed the pool was closed for the season, but the hot tub was not.

We had a room on the third floor which was accessible by the elevator and had an interior corridor.The two floors below had exterior entrances lke the older hotels. This hotel was probably remodeled and a third floor added. Rooms were spotlessly clean with flat screen TV and microwave. Only problem with the bathroom was that it was very small. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. Rooms have free wifi, and it worked fine.

Complimentary breakfast had a nice assortment and everything was restocked as it ran out. Coffee and tea available all the time. Newspapers available at the desk.

Would stay here again. Just wish the bathrooms were larger.

Room Tip: Thid floor rooms have an interior corridor.

Flagstaff hotels are pricey. We were thrilled to find a Fairfield Inn at $67 a night, WAY lower than the rest! This is an older hotel, but served us well – safe, clean, quiet, free wi-fi, and free breakfast. More positives: nice room, good LG TV, generous hot breakfast with enough for all, fresh baked cookie on arrival, USA Today paper, courteous desk clerk, speedy elevator secured with guest key operation. Downside: hall carpet seen better days, smaller room, bed a trifle firm. NOTE: The entrance is hard to find. Go slow and don’t miss it, it is hard to make a U-turn.

Bottom line for us is Clean, Comfy, & Great Location. This hotel was all three. This property feels very new. The room was pristine, although quite small. That's about the only drawback, along with windows that don't open. Perhaps that is just a security issue with hotels. When I'm in the mountains in fall I want to be able to crack a window open. Other than that the stay was very nice. Breakfast was great for a continental serve yourself.

Room Tip: I think west or north facing rooms are the best.

We have stayed here before when diving I40. This hotel seems to have gone downhill. Rooms were clean but small. External corridors which can be a problem in the winter, it gets cold in Flagstaff. Marriott rated this a Cat. 4 hotel but it did not deserve that rating. Staff was helpful and location is good. We may try other hotels in Flagstaff
