I usually stay at Courtyards but the one nearby this facility was booked solid so I tried the Fairfield. I must say it was a good notch below most Hamptons I have stayed in. I didn't expect Courtyard quality but was frankly very surprised at the major drop-off.
I reserved a King Studio (upgrade) and when I arrived they tried to put in a handicapped room - only 1 problem - I'm not handicapped. They they switched me a midnight to a regular double. Very plain and worn looking room. Loud air conditioner runs continuously.
Went downstairs for breakfast but waited a long time for an elevator that only goes to 3 floors. Everyone complained how slow it operates. Fairfield are apparently the "styrofoam kings" of breakfasts. All bowls and drink glasses are stryofoam - is that appropriate in this age of Green? Oatmeal was in packages with a microwave. Orange juice had something foamy in it and the foam would not dissipate after 10 minutes (I think you call that soap - is it designed to enhance the flavor?).
Anyway, you get what you pay for - I paid $89. Most any Country Inn & Suites would be just as good if not better but then probably at a similar price. Take it or leave it.
