“Good Hotel”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We took part in a 5K run in Yorktown and stayed the night before at the Fairfield Inn in Muncie. The rooms and common areas were very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and courteous. The beds were comfortable. Scrambled eggs, sausage and waffles were available in addition to the usual hotel continental breakfast fare. The breakfast area was kept clean and all items were kept stocked. The water for making tea and hot chocolate could have been a little hotter.

There is no elevator so guests who have trouble climbing stairs should request a first floor room.

Thank you for your feedback. We do try to accomodate any guests who can not handle stairs so you were correct in stating that if guests can not handle stairs they should request the first floor. I can tell you also that we are scheduled for a full renovation later this year which will include the addition of an elevator.

I will make sure to bring up the hot water issue to the breakfast staff as well.

Sincerely,

Aaron

Our family of 5 stayed here for a Ball State weekend. Convenient location off I-69. We had double queen, connecting rooms on second floor (no elevator but there's only two floors, no impact). Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, clean/mold-free pool area that's open until midnight. Staff were all courteous/helpful.

Room Tip: If you have issues with stairs resolve them when booking (no elevator).

We stayed here on a Saturday night while visiting our Ball State student. It was a last minute trip and I was able to book the room through Priceline at the rate of $50, plus fees and taxes for a total of about $63.

The hotel is clean and has ample free parking. We were greeted at the desk by Matt who was very pleasant and helpful. Check in was quick and easy and the room was big and clean. There was in room coffee available and plenty of towels.

They offer a free breakfast which included coffee, tea, juices, bagels, English muffins and other assorted breads along with various accompaniments including peanut butter and cream cheese. There were fresh waffles available as well as assorted cereals and fresh fruit. There were also eggs and sausage patties which looked very unappetizing. The breakfast area was very clean.

Overall a very good stay for a good price. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you don't want to climb the stairs request a room on the first floor.

We stayed for one night this week prior to our Ball State visit.
This hotel is average looking from the outside, but well above average inside. The desk staff were friendly and very helpful.
The pool and spa were clean. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and the gal kept everything clean, hot and replenished. This will be our place to stay in Muncie.

Room Tip: We stayed on 2nd floor. No elevator but it was quiet.

I stayed at this hotel for a few days and overall enjoyed my stay there. The employees were friendly and answered all my questions. The interior in the hotel was very clean and smelled great. My room looked good and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is located in a good location with Walmart, Best Buy, and a ton of fast food chain within walking distance. My only complaints with the hotel is that my first night there I was placed in a room with a very loud A/C unit (that rattled all night). I called the front desk and the gentleman placed me into a room the next day without any problems. Secondly, this is the first hotel I've been in that doesn't have an elevator (I know it's weird), but luckily I didn't pack much because it was a business travel. Lastly, the internet connection their is EXTREMELY SLOW!! This will be a problem for business users that need to connect to their company vpn. Fortunately, I just hopped on the free internet access provided by Lowes (much much faster), that's reachable from the hotel and was able to do what I needed.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 1st floor if you have a lot of luggage, due the hotel not having an elevator.

I want to thank you for your review. I can tell you that we are scheduled for an upgrade to our internet access at the end of February. We are also planning a full renovation the first half of this year so the elevator issue and most of the other issues you had will be a thing of the past.

We do hope to see you again on future trips to Muncie.

Okay the person who compared this to the Sofitel maybe be overly excited. But is a very good option. I found the hotel very clean. The service was friendly. The room was clean. The pool area was clean, stocked with extra towels and open untl midnight. Breakfast was included, pretty much your standard freebie hotel breakfast - make your own waffles, fruit, cereal, muffins, bread and toast. They also had hot scrambled eggs and sausage.

This is just a few blocks from the Ball State campus and on the main drag plenty of restaurants on the main road and shopping just up the street.

My only complaint is the size of the bathrooms very tiny for a hotel bathroom. The door practically hits the toilet as you open it, so you had to get all the way in, and get between the toilet and counter to close the door. Also usually i will do my hair while the hubby is shaving or what not and definitely could not have two people mirror at the same time. but if your a single travler or allow a little extra time for two people to get ready you will be fine.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I do apologize for the small bathrooms. We were converted a number of years ago and we were left with smaller than usual bathrooms.

I am glad to hear that our location was convenient and served you well for your stay.

We do hope to see you again on your future trips to the Muncie area.
