Reviewed October 26, 2012

We stayed here during the busy week end of Iowa/Iowa STate game. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Hotel was very clean and conveniently located. Pool area was also very clean and I am very picky about that. The price was very reasonable. Other family members stayed at another higher ranked hotel and liked ours much better. WIll definitely stay there again

You how you have your suspicions about a place when they can't even check you in correctly because they are too busy talking on the phone or chatting with a co-worker? I should have known what I was in for after this happened to me. A 2 minute check took 10 minutes just to get a crappy room.

I go to use the bathroom and notice black scum on the ceiling...and more black scum in the tub...and more black scum around the grout...MOLD! I go back downstairs and ask for another room...in which I'm told, "I'm sorry, we are sold out because it is a football weekend. And since it is a Saturday afternoon, housekeeping has gone home for the day." Whhhaaaattttt?????

The room from hell just keeps going farther into the abyss:

Only 2 channels on the TV come in clearly.
The bed has never been rotated, so one half of the bed is completely broken down and you have to use the other half otherwise you'll sag to the floor.
Best I could get with the WIFI was 2 bars...due to the hotel being sold out and so many people using it, I was told.
Cold coffee for breakfast.
The key card lock on the front door...for security...doesn't work.

Anyone need any more reasons not to stay here? Marriott should strip this franchisee of its' license...better off being turned into an hourly rate hotel with the way it is currently run. There are a lot more options nearby, including a full service Marriott down the street...anyplace but this Farfiled is my recommendation.

Room Tip: Stay at the Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn Express..anywhere else but this place.

I have stayed at several Fairfield Inn hotels in the past and had a very pleasant experience, so I decided to give this one a try in spite of some of the bad reviews I saw on here. This hotel was pretty much subpar on every mark. I could already size up how the experience would be from the tiny lobby that didn't even have automatic doors, and the rather abrupt and angry looking woman at the front desk. The room wasn't much better; it was very basic, cramped and outdated. The curtains wouldn't close completely, there were stains on the sheets, the doorknob to the bathroom was about to fall off, and there was water damage on the ceiling above the shower that had simply been painted over. I wasn't expecting much passing through Cornhole, IA, but this hotel still managed to disappoint.

This is a basic hotel for an affordable price. Clean, well maintained, courteous staff.
While much more affordable than many comparable hotels in the area, all went well. Check-in was smooth, the room clean, and everything worked. Good temperature control, low level of noise, Internet worked well, enough wall outlets, decent size room and bathroom. Very good TV channel selection including HBO, but all choices are analog (no digital). Other than no digitial channels, hotel met all my requirements, and gives Marriott points. No complaints for a simple stay.

This is a basic hotel in the bargain category. I chose it online having had good experiences with Fairfield. It is a hotel on an interstate exit and just doesn't try to be anything than a room with breakfast. Strange for a university town. There is good security. The rooms were clean. The furnishings were aged but servicable. The bed was basic. If you can get a good price and need to bed down, this will do. We spent two nights visiting and it would have been worth checking out other sites.

It was a fine hotel. It was older, but definitely maintained. It without a doubt met the standards of a Marriott brand hotel. It was in a nice part of town, safe, all that good stuff. I really can't complain about it. Good staff, clean rooms. What more can you ask?

It has a very small parking lot. It was difficult to find a place to park at night. Also, the doors don't do a very good job at sealing out noise. I could hear other people open and close their doors, but even at that, it wasn't bad at all.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Only stayed in town 1 night for a wedding. The girl at reception was very helpful. Breakfast was great in the morning - good selection. Would stay again if ever in the area.
