“Clean & Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Freshly-baked cookies and juice were waiting for us at the desk for check-in. The gentleman working the front desk even called the room about a half-hour after check-in to make sure everything was to our liking in the room. Mattress was extraordinarily comfortable for being a hotel bed. I had found a deeply discounted room rate online, so I was a little concerned that there might be something wrong with the hotel, but it was so very clean! It didn't have that overly-sanitized "hotel smell." Rather, it smelled like a private residence-- just clean. Even though the building is right next to a highway and our room was on the end closest to said road, we weren't bothered by noise at all; it was a pleasantly quiet stay. Breakfast was about average for any 2 1/2-star hotel. The only real drawback was that the pool and hot tub were closed for remodeling during our stay. However, the front desk was upfront about this when I called to confirm our reservation, so we were spared a surprise disappointment. There is no on-site fitness center, but the hotel does offer a complimentary voucher for admission to a local gym.

We were greeted by a great front desk person, cheerful, helpful and very efficient. On the plus side the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast selection was good. On the minus side, the furniture was badly stained and the desk chair was so tilted forward you could hardly sit in it. The caulking on the tub was pulled off and black in spots and and the tile floor squeaked when you walked on it, not a problem for me but probably annoying for anyone under us. Overall OK but it was hard to be comfortable anyplace other than on the bed.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend top floor.

Needed to stay overnight around Waterloo so chose the Fairfield. Price of room with senior discount was more than I thought it would be but the room was clean and had a very comfortable mattress. Breakfast had more choices than normal, sandwiches of ham and cheese, sausage and cheese and pancake and sausage on a stick. Stocked and extremely clean breakfast area. The only downside, and this may be petty, but the duvets were of a material that made a crinkly sound whenever you moved in the bed. Kind of like cellophane would sound. Very strange. Even though, I would stay there again.

We stayed here last summer July 30, 2011. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by the sweetest young lady at the front desk. She has excellent customer service skills and she made us feel right at home. Our room was very nice, and super clean. The beds were so comfy we had a hard time waking up in the morning. We stayed at over 10 hotels last summer in a 3 week span and this one was by far one of the best! We will for sure be back!

We needed a one night stay in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area, and the Fairfield Inn fit the bill nicely. Although not luxurious like a Marriott or Ritz it was comfortable with big room and nice amenities...free newspaper, WiFi, Pantene toiletries, breakfast, free HBO, etc. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The pool was small but I wouldn't imagine you'd come here as a vacation spot. We stayed for an athletic event event at UNI and it was convenient. All in all, we got a good night sleep for a good price.

Room Tip: We got a corner room 322 and it was nice and big and away from any noise.

Second time staying in this hotel and the only reason I stayed here again is because I am a Marriott groupie (mega awards points earner). The rooms and bathrooms are clean, have the large flat screen TV, and typical Marriott beds and pillows. Staff was helpful when I needed assistance with finding a courier. The major downfall is the lack of noise containment. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the walls are paper thin and transmit even normal conversations easily. I always stay on the upper most floor but I could tell that my walking across the room was making alot of noise for the room below me. Plus the doors make a huge bang when they close themselves. The breakfast is typical, microwave sandwiches, waffle maker, bagel, fresh fruit, cereal, juice. Next time, I will sacrifice the points and go down the road to the Holiday Inn Express.

Room Tip: always request a top floor room.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. This is a perfectly adequate hotel. My major concern was that the walls appeared to be very thin. The highlight of my stay was to find that they have chocolate milk in the included breakfast buffet. I would stay here again as it was clean and efficient.
