ROBIN was great upon check in. She thanked me for being an elite member, which no one has ever done! She told me where to find everything like the pool and it’s hours, she told me breakfast times, she told me the Internet password..... she covered it all. We really enjoyed the alligator. The air conditioning worked great, the building was clean throughout. The breakfast was delicious and the breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful the young white male with brownish hair, the older new woman, and the other white female I didn’t get their names. The kitchen staff in whole were great. Fast easy check in and offers early check in. The decor was beautiful especially the large American flag. Smooth check out. The breakfast staff were friendly and breakfast hours were better than other locations starting at 7am until 9:30am I didn’t get house keeping, but I saw them every morning and they gave me a roll of toilet tissue when asked, took my old towels when I brought them and gave me new clean towels. They even took my trash I brought them. I vacuumed daily and stripped my bedding upon exiting myself.

Friends said they always stay in Fairfields so .... Booked a King room. Very sparse- one super uncomfortable chair, one desk chair and the supposed King bed. Don't think it was - the width was a good deal smaller than a King (I think it was a queen) in the middle of the room with lots of bare space on either side. There was mini fridge, micro & tiny coffee maker. So all in all nothing special- just a place to sleep. They have done away with the little shampoo bottles etc and have mounted 3 dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and liquid body wash on the shower wall (is this really more sanitary than the throw away little bottles- or just a cheaper alternative?) There was one tiny bar soap for the sink maybe 1/2" deep x 3.5" long x 2" wide -something that size we would throw out at home Upon check in we were told if we needed anything we would need to come down to the desk for it (towels etc) and there would be no room cleaning. A fact of covid- no staff. The breakfast was available only til 9am during the week -who wants to get up that early on vacation? It would be best to skip it anyway by 8am they were out of milk, cream, fruit & eggs and the coffee abysmal. There was no bacon or sausage-either day of our stay. So basic toast and coffee it was. Covid has really ruined the travel industry. Everyone is fighting for staff, amenities are few and far between yet prices are through the roof. We were also not greeted as Gold Elite members

The hotel is beautiful and clean, looks brand new. Front Office Manager Robin Bernard went above and beyond when it comes to customer service, we will definitely book all future family events with Robin and the Fairfield Inn of Southport. Thank you Robin!

Came here and was greeted warmly by the girl at the front- Robin. The manager is nice and so are the other staff members. Certainly above the norm. The location is close to both Oak Island and Southport (at the crossroads).

Very pleased with our stay. Room was well appointed with comfortable bed and pillows. All areas of hotel were clean but housekeeping was not occurring due to Covid. The pool was small but well maintained. Breakfast buffet was great and well stocked. The staff at the front desk was the most friendly that I have encountered. While eating breakfast I watched them deal with an issue and staff was supportive and caring to guest with an outside issue. The only con I had was that other guests didn’t wear masks indoors while at breakfast buffet. I understand that this may not be important to everyone so I would bot judge the hotel based on this. Thanks for a great stay.

As a matter of background information, we have always sought out various Fairfield Inns and Suites when we travel, in particular, in North Carolina where we travel quite a bit. For the most part, the Fairfield Inns we've stayed out were absolutely superb - all the way around. So naturally, we sought out the Fairfield Inn in Southport, based on our previous experiences with them all over the state. But I must say that this particular Fairfield Inn leaves so much to be desired. When we booked a King size bed suite room, we were always accustomed to a much larger room - using other Fairfield Inns as an example. When we finally were able to get into our room, it was a smallish room, and when you pulled out the sofa bed (we had 3 adults in our party), there was little room to maneuver in our room. Needless to say, we soon came to realize that paying almost $500 for two nights in this small room was just NOT worth it. Then there was the issue of cleaning. I don't know if this policy was confined to just the Southport Fairfield Inn, or if this is a newer policy among the entire chain, but unless you request it, the hotel staff will not clean your room at all. We didn't realize this and our room became loaded with trash (remember, the small size of the room and 3 adults). In addition, when checking in, we had to request more towels and the sheets, pillows, and blankets for the pull-out sofa bed. As for the breakfast, it was an embarrassment, and again - I don't know if this was a Covid precaution, but we've been accustomed to nice breakfast arrangements in the other Fairfield Inns we've stayed at, to be sure. The horrible (and rubbery) tasting Jimmy Dean microwave egg white and turkey sausage sandwiches certain did NOT do anything for one's palette. Now if all you were accustomed to eating was either microwaveable oatmeal or cereal, then all was well for you, I suppose. As a result, the last day of our stay, we ignored the Fairfield Inn breakfast and went to a local restaurant. We soon came to find out (while checking out), that this was an older building that once belonged to the Hampton Inn and was taken over and renovated by Fairfield. Still, there were just too many scenarios that would preclude us from staying there again in the future. If you want to see two specific, outstanding Fairfield Inns - visit the ones in Elkin, NC and Elizabeth City, NC. Both set the standards and tone for what all Fairfield Inns should be like. Those two locales will spoil you to be sure.

Dear Bernd: Providing the highest level of hospitality is our number one priority and we sincerely apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations. Due to COVID we have had to put precautions in place, for both the guest and employees, to be as safe as possible. Housekeeping is upon request and we had a grab and go breakfast during your stay. As a teachable moment, we have shared your feedback with the appropriate hotel team. Once again, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We appreciate you choosing to stay with us during these unusual times.

We were really happy with the hotel. It’s was clean and airy. The fitness center had a lot to offer, the breakfast was pretty good and the rooms were clean. We were most impressed with the bathroom and the updated modern shower! And the staff were very friendly. Definitely a thumbs ups

What an excellent Fairfield Inn experience. Yes, the hotel is in a terrific location halfway to Southport center and halfway to Oak Island and beaches, yes, this hotel is totally Covid compliant and SPOTLESS. Yes, this hotel has an enhanced breakfast with delicious prewrapped breakfast sandwiches, fresh fruit, and grab-and-go items. But it is the staff, so attentive, personable, eager to please, and professional that give this hotel its edge! From my first encounter with the fantastic, capable, dedicated Angie at the front desk to my pleasant, efficient experience with Kris, our stay was wonderful. Shout out to Kayla in the breakfast area that never stopped cleaning, replenishing items, and positively interacting with all the guests. She is such a hard worker! Not to forget manager Christine who works just hard alongside her employees making sure each guest was happy and satisfied! THis will be our Southport hotel for all future stays!
