If you happen to be visiting or passing by the small town of Effingham in south Illinois, you probably won't have a lot of options to crash at. I have stayed at the Fairfield Inn on two trips and have a pretty good opinion of the place. Here's how my experience went: 1- Location Effingham is in the middle of... More

The location is nice. Hot tub needs some attention green around edges. Very clean rooms could have had blankets located in the closet for pull out sofa. Arec was very monotone and needed cheered up at the front desk. Overall decent stay.

I can not say enough good about this hotel. A front desk clerk who knows the town well enough to make recommendations for unusual requests. We were traveling with our dog and needed a dog friendly place to eat.

A pleasant stay in a fresh, clean room that is nicely decorated. It had an upholstered side chair but not an easy chair or recliner. The bed was comfortable. There were no eating places in walking distance that I saw. The hotel is very close to the highway but, once inside, I was not aware of the noise at all

Clean, nicely furnished- excellent breakfast very quiet-indoor pool-friendly staff -ONLY drawback was the bed- new mattress needed in room 401. You could teller which side of the bed travelers slept on- very uncomfortable Not the usual bed I have have come to expect from Marriot properties!!

This Fairfield is almost in a residential area of Effingham. The Inn is very nice and the staff took very good care of my lovely wife and me along with our little dog, which by the way was only $10.00 more. The breakfast was the usual fare for Fairfield but still good. When we checked in the front desk young... More

This is an older Fairfield property right next to the busy highway. Be careful you don't get a room facing the highway, it is noisy and we asked to be moved across the hallway in the back. Above average breakfast, round the clock coffee, friendly front desk and a well lit parking lot. As always, clean and comfortable beds.

A very clean hotel at a reasonable price. The bed was super comfortable. The guy working the desk Sunday night was very friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast provided in the morning as well. Easy access from the interstate and close to most of the dining options in the area. Parking was well lit and safe.
