“Nice hotel for the money. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

I haven't been to Tallahassee in a couple of years, but I could tell that this hotel is somewhat new. Beautiful lobby area & clean rooms. Full hot breakfast, which surprised us. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable with events around town. The bathroom is a nice size and our King bed was comfy. Have to keep this on our list of hotels when we visit family again.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with friends

stayed here on first leg of road trip. nothing bad to say about hotel at all. Very clean room and nice friendly people at front desk. Dining room staff kept everything well stocked and food was good. Everyone in hotel and dining greeted us. Great towels and water pressure (important because that sure is not the case in some hotels ) easy access to downtown and I-10

I stay in many Fairfield Inns so I know a good one when I stay at one. I probably would have given this one a 3.5 rating but since you can't do a half I went with the three because I want this location to work on improving itself. I will probably give it another try the next time I'm in the area before writing it off but this visit had some shortcomings.

The first thing you will notice is that getting in and out of the property is tricky but doable depending on which direction you are coming from and heading out to. Obviously, the location can't be changed but just be prepared for it. After getting into my room and unpacked after a long day, I sat down and turned on the TV or at least tried to. The remote control would not bring on the TV. I was able to manually turn on the TV with the switch on the TV itself but the DirecTV box was mounted in the middle of the back of the TV out of sight so it was difficult to try and change channels on the box itself. I called the front desk and the attendant came up promptly and tried to figure out the issue but was not able to correct it. He said he would have to have his maintenance man come up and look at it. I left for dinner shortly after that and figured it would be fixed by the time I returned. If he came while I was gone, he did not fix it. Luckily, I had rented a RedBox DVD while I was out and watched that on my laptop. I just wasn't able to watch the news that evening or the next morning. The next morning while in the shower, I found a dirty washcloth hanging in the shower from a previous guest. I went down to breakfast only to find no bran or whole grain type healthy cereals. Just about every Fairfield I stay at offers Cheerios, Raisin Bran or both. Before heading back to my room, I made myself a cup of coffee only to find it loaded with coffee grounds. I'm not talking about a few, I'm talking fully loaded.

Now for the positives. The staff members I came in contact with were all very friendly. Except for the dirty washcloth, the overall hotel was clean. The outside of the hotel is one of the updated Fairfield exteriors. There are a few dining choices in walking distance but many more in driving distance. They have DirecTV but I wasn't able to enjoy it.

Stayed for several days on business and was satisfied with the hotel.

Pros: Very nice fitness center (new equipment), it had Direct TV in the rooms (first time I've gotten that at a Fairfield!), and friendly staff.
Cons: The room wasn't very big, but not bad. The breakfast bar wasn't fully stocked every day, but only missing an item or two.

Would stay there again.

We were there for a school competition so there were many middle/high school kids there. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. For as busy at it was, the host kept up with keeping food out. The pool was indoors, though the water temp was cool it was a decent size pool. Lastly, many restaurants were near the hotel and the mall was down the road. Took maybe 10 minutes to get downtown. Would stay there again.

The stay was quite enjoyable. The front desk was very professional. When we arrived that Friday, the lobby was pleasant. We started to think that it was going to be a noisy situation because we saw several members of a sports team. Assuming, we figured this is going to be a noise filled stay. Our room was on the bottom floor and I have never stayed on the bottom level. I knew this was going to be a bad situation, however, I was wrong. The room was clean and very modern. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. The hotel sits right off one of the main roads and surprisingly it was not noticeable. As far as breakfast goes, there were tons of people staying in that hotel (evidently there was some game or something going on) it was a mad house out there. But, everyone seemed to be having a great time and enjoying themselves. We went out to the local co-op and got some breakfast. In the end, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Due to the property is not facing the main road, most rooms should be okay. I have always been a pe...
