“Very nice stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

The breakfast area was a bit crowded. Other than that, this was a great stay. It all seems newly updated. No complaints. We had a clean room that smelled good. Never have I had a more comfortable bed. I would recommend this Fairfield.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

After a long day and late arrival I was pleasantly surprised when I checked into my room and was upgraded (no request...just did it) to a suite with whirlpool tub and fireplace at a Govt rate.
The room was clean, the bedding bright white and crisp, the carpet and furnishings appeared nearly new. Spent three nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Modern style and really convenient to shopping and restaurants. And not a bad free breakfast buffet...included fresh fruits which was nice to see.

After driving 8+ hours, we were in need of a comfy bed and a good nights rest....and it was delivered! Loved the decor and our room was very clean. The pillows felt great at first but were flat when you woke up in the middle of the night. I would recommend bringing your own or see if they have firmer ones to prevent neck strain. Bathroom had hot water and shower head was great!
Breakfast was a little less desirable but still good and fulfilling. They had Belgian waffles (a little thin mixture) turkey sausage, hard boiled eggs, fruit, cereal, bagels, and muffins. Beverages included coffee and a juice machine that had water, orange, apple and cranberry.
Will definitely stay here again when we head west for vacations.

We returned again this year as we think this hotel is a great value for the money. We traveled 9 hours from Toledo, Ohio to West Des Moines, Iowa and found the hotel clean and the rooms well done. It's not the "Ritz" but it's comfortable and friendly. The staff is very friendly and willing to help if you need it. You can't beat the Marriott chain restaurants for the money and we'll for sure stay her again if we're on a motor trip West.

The hotel appeared to be very recently remodeled. Rooms were decent size with plenty of outlets for your electronics. Beds were comfortable and the chair with ottoman was a welcome addition. Fridge and microwave were nice conveniences, Location is very convenient to the interstate.

Our room faced the interstate and it didn't seem well sound proofed. Nice gathering area and an acceptable breakfast.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the interstate.

The hotel had a huge face lift. It's very nice and modern inside. The people are super nice and the location is great. They have security at night. You have to use your key to get inside all doors. They have a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. The beds are very comfortable and they had little stools that you could pull over and put your feet up when you sat on the couch. There are restaurants and a gas station within walking distance. They also have room service now. The morning breakfast in the same but it's nice. There is coffee all the time which we loved. We used to stay here every other month when my husband came from Mn for a doctors appointment. It used to be a lot less expensive. They definitely passed on their remodeling expense to their customers. Still a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: King rooms are large and come with a couch. Hotel is quit so I'm sure all rooms are fine.
