Stayed one night as part of a New York to Seattle trip. The location was handy to the highway. The hotel was shoddy compared to the other Fairfields we stayed at on our trip. The desk clerk was unfriendly and unkempt. The room smelt smoky. The room was smaller with two double beds rather than two queen sized beds. The... More

Fairfield Inn was very clean and had very friendly staff. The breakfast was great as well, just what we needed before getting back on the road. Eggs, waffles, biscuits, muffins, cereal--the works. They have an indoor pool and spa-open until 11pm and a small convenience stand with some basic supplies and snacks. The beds and pillows I would describe as... More

Clean with decor and bedding to match the Fairfield standard with close proximity to a variety of chain restaurants. No more and no less than you need in a hotel stay. The breakfast was the same as every other hotel.

Over charged considering what we got. Stopped on our way north for the night. Told that because of the College Baseball World Series in Omaha that they didn't have much available but we could have a king with taxes for over $200 for the night. Would not stay there again, quality not worth the price. Felt they were price gouging... More

Heading back from the west coast brought us to Council Bluffs for the night. The Fairfield Inn had all the normal amenities one would expect of the chain. The room was clean and well maintained and the staff was friendly and efficient.

We were placed in room 308 next to the elevator. When you come into the room the first 10-12 feet was a hallway because you are next to the elevator shaft. This makes the room very small. Had this been more than a one night sleep stop I would have complained but we made due.

Spent 1 night at the Fairfield while driving cross country with my son. Turned out to be a good choice as it was convenient to the Interstate, restaurants and shopping. It is reasonably priced and clean. It's nothing fancy, but a good place to sleep. Breakfast was included and pretty good. The only drawback is that there is a fair... More

This was the perfect place to stay on our trip from Colorado to Wisconsin. Very easy access off of I 80, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and many food options close by. Applebee's, just down the street, has great tap beer and a nice selection of food. We will definitely be back to the Fairfield. The price... More
