“Pleased”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

I was pleased with the front desk staff and overall hotel stay. I did find hair in tub upon checking into my room. The housekeeping staff needs to pay more attention to notes of request that guest may leave for them. Breakfast variety could be better. Overall i was satisfied and would stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here for 2 days it was nice front desk was very kind no problems breakfast was great variety. We just had one issue before my husband left he left my son his allowence on top of the dresser and we both left to go our own seprate ways he was headed out of town. I came back and the money was gone. My son was a bit confused and up set ,I think the housekeeper thought it was a tip.

Hotel is in a good area, very handy for those visiting Eglin. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Anyone who likes to go to bed early or has young children should ask for rooms at the front of the hotel. There is a pub at the back of the hotel, very handy after a long day's work, and it has live music some nights, although it quietens down around 10pm.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter.

Five stars compared to other hotels in the "Value" segment. Had no idea what to expect. Area was booked fairly solid. Normally I stay in Courtyards or Marriott . This Fairfield received a very nice renovation recently. Lobby was nice. Staff was very pleasant, friendly, helpful and efficient. Room was excellent!! Better than most Courtyards and full service Marriott's that I frequently stay in.

Very close to Eglin AFB and not to far from Hurlburt AB. Beach is about 15 minutes away. Destin restaurants and shopping 15 to 25 minutes depending on traffic.

If you are OK with not being right on the beach, this is a great place to stay! Although the hotel is not in the "tourist area", it's within just a few minutes drive from the beach and shopping with quick and easy access to both. The rooms and facilities are very clean and up to date and the staff are friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend it to family and friends!

First time staying in Destin area, hotel was priced well and worth the 20 minute drive to Desin to save about $50 per night from Destin area hotels. Hotel was clean and staff very welcoming. I'm a rewards member and this Fairfield is as nice any I've stayed at. Pool and hot tube were clean.

The front desk staff was amazing. The location is close to the base and not to far from the airport. Its a burger king in walking distance. Two negatives first is the free breakfast. I know its free but the cooked items like eggs & breakfast meats were terrible. Second, the towls are terribly thin and ruff. You will exfoliate if you use them. The owner need to invest in new towls. The towels made me fill that I was staying at a motel. I would stay there again just not eat the breakfast and pack my own towels.
