We stop at this hotel every time we're in the area. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are always wonderful, and the breakfast buffet has everything on it that I need. In addition they have an indoor pool and hot tub. The hot tub is always clean. In addition, for people with disabilities, they have a lift that will lift you in and out the hot tub which is a wonderful bonus. A lot of choices for breakfast including waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, cereal, muffins, juices, yogurt and other things. Check-in and checkout is fast and efficient.

Green Features: They follow the environmentally-friendly practice of using the sheets over again, or towels if you agree to that. If not they certainly would change them every day

This was just a quick stop for us on a road trip along I-70. We chose the Fairfield based on the reputation of Marriott and other reviews from TripAdvisor.

The room was clean and the staff was proficient. We also enjoyed the indoor pool (actually warm enough to swim in as opposed to other motels that don't heat the water to a comfortable temperature) and the hot tub.

Our only complaints with this property is the upcharge if we wanted "true high speed" internet and the mediocre breakfast.

Room Tip: Don't get roped into using the "true high speed" internet; just opt for the free conne...

We had a beautiful room. You could tell everything was fairly new. The bed was comfy and my husband and I had a good night sleep. I went down for coffee and asked for a tray to bring food back to the room. They were very accommodating and we enjoyed a nice breakfast from bagels to sausage cereal and fruit bars. Very nice place to stay anytime personal or business.

This was the quickest checkin process I've ever had at a hotel. They had keys and room assignments waiting for my group. They simply swiped credit cards, handed us keys and gave us directions to the rooms. That was just what we needed after a long day of travel.

My only suggestion for improvement would be for the hotel to put glasses in the room so I can have water in a non-styrafoam cup.

Last night of an 11 day cross-country trip. Just needed a good night's sleep before the 14 hour dash for home the next day. Quiet, clean and comfortable - just what I needed. The desk clerk was friendly and efficient, and had no trouble applying one of my free nights (something which had flummoxed other Marriott clerks). Excellent all around. A little hard to find off the interstate, but no big deal.

I wish I could clone this property and use it more often. Pet friendly and Andrea was great at the front desk. Room was large and had a Jacuzzi with separate shower. Bedding was very nice. The whole experience was well worth the price.
