Briarwood Inn of Fairfield
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Fairfield
Reviewed May 28, 2013

You never know what you'll get in a small town hotel, but this one was really a nice surprise! King-sized comfy bed, clean bathroom, wi-fi, flat-screen tv, coffee in room, hot breakfast in the morning, iron and ironing board, friendly and accommodating front desk! Couldn't really ask for more out of a tiny hotel!

Note: Do NOT go to the little restaurant across the street, if it's still in business (Five Brothers Cafe). They try to offer too much variety, and don't specialize in anything. It was actually very bad.

I've stayed at this hotel twice, most recently in August 2012. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The decor is a little dated but the bed was comfortable. There was some noise from doors closing but was it was otherwise quiet.

We were so disappointed. We reserved the family suite and a room with 2 Queen beds several months before we were to arrive. When we got there the district manager had moved into the suite (was this supposed to be good for business?), and they had 2 rooms with a King sized bed to replace the 2 rooms we had reserved. Neither room was what we had reserved. The suite was for 4 people, who were not all interested in sleeping in one King sized bed together. The hotel didn't have any other rooms available and had made no effort to contact us when their district manager moved into the suite so we could make other arrangements. Did I get a discount or anything to make up for our inconvenience? No. This was the second and last time I will stay at this hotel.

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.
