“A pleaseant stay”

We spent one night here. The staff was great, the room was nice and the beds wonderful. The room had a microwave and refrigerator in it. Is is a great place for the price.

Even though it is a non smoking hotel, there is always a ton of smokers and the rooms reak of the smell. Enough to give me sore throat.

Also smokers smoke at the front door sometimes up to half dozen the day I was there. The state law specifically reads that a 20ft barrier should be maintain from all entrances. The management was ignorant of the law and shrugged her shoulders and said that is were we allow them to smoke because of the ashtrays. Suggestions of posting the law on signs as is required went with a roll of the eyes.

Nothing fancy here. Hotel shows some age but was clean and adequate. The breakfast is common fare, nothing fancy or too substantial, but it was free. There is an awesome sports bar across the street that had great food and a Cracker Barrel off of the parking lot. Convenient to the highway. I wouldn't stay here long term, but for the night it was ok.

This Fairfield Inn was clean and convenient. There is a computer in the lobby with printer and internet access. There is no treadmill or workout facility but they offer free passes to Gold's Gym that is a 5 min. drive and is pretty nice. The front desk staff is very friendly and willing to help with anything. There is a bar/grill across the street called Heroes which has good food.

I stayed here a couple nights for work and found it to be good. It's convienently located, clean, and offers free breakfast. This hotel is nothing special, but serves its purpose of being clean and comfortable.

We came to this hotel as a resting point for our trip from Kansas City, MO to Brighton, MI. This hotel is conveniently located right off I-80 (easy access to the rest of Chicago). Unfortunately, it's located off of I-80 (heavy construction and heavy congestion!). We got a room with two double beds. The air conditioner was decent, but the room never really got cold like we wanted it to. On a day when the temperature is reaching the mid 90s, it would have been nice to come back to a room with the temp in the upper 60s. Other than this, it was a good hotel. Marriott owns another property right next to this Fairfield Inn, so give that some consideration as it is cheaper at times. Also, there is a Cracker Barrel right next to the hotel, which allowed for a hearty breakfast!

This hotel represents a good value for the money. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast was decent, and the building seems well kept.

I do have one important issue though.

The hotel apparently adopted a non-smoking policy somewhat recently. This is a welcome change, however, as soon as I walked in to my room I could tell it was a former smoking room. The stale smoke smell hit me right away. Even a strong smell of air freshener and fresh paint could not overpower the years of smoking this room endured. I was too tired to complain about it. They need to dispose of all furnishings, drapes, and carpet, and perhaps even replace the drywall to convert this to a non smoking room, not just paint it and spray air freshener.

They also automatically bill you $1.50 for the safe that is in the room, but will remove the charge if you ask them.
