Briarwood Inn of Fairfield
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Fairfield
Reviewed June 20, 2012

I am originally from this area of southern Illinois and I have the opportunity to stay in the motel once or twice a year. The motel is consistently pleasant. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The motel has all of the basic room amenities with the addition of a frig. It is better than many of the 3 star motels I have spent the night in.

We were on a trip from the midwest to Virginia and looked for a place to stay close to I-64 near Evansville, IN. I am not a fan of the noisy hotels right on the interstate and like to find local places in small towns. Briarwood Inn is just 9 miles from I-64 in Fairfield, IL (very small town, not a lot of restaurant choices but ok). It was a quiet place. The inn is like a one floor hotel with inside corridors. Very clean, PET-FRIENDLY, and staff very nice and accommodating. (They let us store our freezer chest ice packs in the frig in the breakfast room. There is a microwave, coffee make and small frig in the room but the fridge was missing the freezer compartment. Apparently some of the fridges have them.) Typical "continental" b'fast--biscuits, gravy, hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast, cereal, etc. However, only con was the windows don't open and I dislike the under-window units blowing on me all night. I usually ask the hotel when making a reservation but forgot this time. Nice for a detour if you don't mind A/C at night...

You never know what to expect in smaller towns away from the Interstate but the Briarwood Inn was a very pleasant surprise. It was very clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and attentive. On arrival, I was greeted by an older gentleman in a rocking chair outside the main entrance and never did know if he was staff or just someone who stopped to sit for a spell - but he added to the local experience. I usually stay at Marriott, Hilton or HI branded properties but If I make it back to this area again I will definitely stay here.

We had a family wedding over Thanksgiving weekend in Fairfield and stayed several nights at the Briarwood. The manager Gayla and her staff were wonderful!! Rooms were very clean and the price was excellent. Everyone was friendly and very accommodating. I would highly recommend the Briarwood Inn if you are in the Fairfield area...

The Briarwood is absolutely spotlessly clean. There was plentiful hot water. The staff was friendly ... what more can one ask for? I can not comment on the breakfast since I left early (Breakfast starts at 6:15 a.m., I was told).

Don't let the fact that there are only a couple of places to stay in Fairfield, IL, make you think that quality is not on the minds of the owners and staff of the Briarwood Inn. We recently stayed there and found it to be very neat, very clean, and very quiet--all at an excellent price ($70+tax king non smoking room). We had ample room, a fridge, microwave, and what we always crave--plenty of wifi in our room. Although we didn't swim in the outdoor pool, we did sit beside and it was in great shape as well. There is a continental breakfast in the the mornings that promises plenty of food to start the day. If that's not your thing, there is a restaurant just across the driveway within very easy walking distance. We would most definitely stay at the Briarwood Inn anytime we're in the Fairfield area.

My family and I were force to stay in Fairfield, IL., because of an accident on the highway left us stranded with our car in Joe's Collision and Repair. The owner of the Briarwood Inn was beyond accommodating but let us feel like we were at home.
Comfortable and clean our stay was good and made the rocky start of our trip much smoother.
