“Great staff, property could use updating”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We recently stayed at this property while attending a wedding.
The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful.
The property itself while very clean could use some updating.
The breakfast area was always clean and neat, the food had reasonable variety consistently replenished.

We recently stayed at this hotel in Appleton, Wisconsin. The experience was fine. Pretty typical Fairfield Inn chain. Rooms were fine. Service was fine. Nothing spectacular and nothing negative. The staff was friendly. It's close to the mall so one can walk there easily. Several restaurants within walking distance too. We never ate the breakfast there so can't comment on that.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your stay with us. I noticed you were unable to join us for Breakfast this time. It is my hope you will come back and stay with again. In the next couple of weeks we hope to roll out the "New Hot Breakfast" which should be a wonderful addition to the Hotel.

Generally a Fairfield Inn in this class and style would be around $99 a night but this one is priced like it is a recently renovated Fairfield Inn and Suites, which it is not. I found the hotel clean and the carpet and furnishings were from the last generation of Marriott decor. A crowded and very small breakfast and lobby area was not appealing to my tastes. Would I stay here again on business? Yes, but if I was in town with family I would pick a different hotel.

I've stayed here about twice a year for the past few years because it's convenient and I get Marriott points. But it's time for a thorough cleaning and upgrade. My room smelled musty and damp, the decor is getting dated, and the price is too high for what you get.

The hotel is pretty pricey for what you get... $120 a night for a very basic room. I only stayed because I had rewards points to use. However, the hotel is conveniently located right next to the mall with many restaurants nearby, a 5 minute drive to the airport and close to downtown Appleton. Breakfast is supposed to be served at 6 but it was ready when I was leaving for work at 5:20. And they put on a pretty decent spread... not your basic cereal and packaged pastries. Fresh fruit, waffles, french toast, breakfast sandwiches, etc... Also, the bed was by far the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept on. The hotel is very quiet too, which is a huge plus. Keep in mind though that there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms so this hotel may not be suitable for those on an extended stay.

I've stayed here a few times in the past year and it meets my expectations. It is a hotel next to a highway and mall. It costs around $100. With that in mind they do a decent job. Service is really great, the front desk staff is very helpful.

I really wish they would take room 107 and turn it into a fitness room looking into the pool. The fact they don't have a fitness room is a real detractor. Overall the hotel is very clean and nice, but it could really benefit from a renovation, there are lots of little things throughout each room that just need to be touched up.

I'll definitely stay again and continue to hope for a new fitness room!

Room Tip: Ask for a room somewhat isolated from other travelers as the floors/walls are pretty thin.

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. It was centrally located for my appointments in the Appleton area. The staff were very friendly, true to what I come to expect at any of the Marriott properties. Breakfast was OK - typically Fairfield Inn fare. Room was clean and quiet. Walking distance to restaurants and short drive to mall and other area restaurants.
Will use this hotel again on my trips to the area.
