“Does not feel like a Fairfield Inn by Marriott”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2009

We used this Fairfield Inn for our travel to the Saint James Court Art Show in Louisville. It is located convenient at the highway and the price looked ok. The soaps in the bathroom were tiny and they smelled like in a public bathroom. The breakfast is without fresh waffles. Our room smelled very bad and we were very disappointed. The mattress was ok but the smell did not help to have a good night. It felt like a no-name brand motel off the road. I'm a Marriott Platinum member - and if this is what they give their best members - I don't even want to know what they do for regular travelers...

When we opened the front door I began to have some reservations. Chipped paint and a greasy door handle with fingerprints all over the door. Was greeted by a mint sucking, could care less about my job front desk person. The place smelled in the hallways and elevator. As I lay here in my very old mattressed bed (the kind with sink hole in the middle) I can smell someone else's head that has been on the pillow. The bathroom floor seemed that it may have been disinfected, but certainly not cleaned. We have an adjoining room with a "suite". The carpet tack strip between the two rooms ws left uncovered--and ready for some injury to the soles of some feet.
One saving grace--Pantene Shampoo!
Will let you know when we try breakfast in the morning....
Will try to sleep with the smells.

We stayed at the Berea Fairfield on our way to Atlanta. The rooms were clean, fresh, and welcoming. While it is not a high end hotel, it certainly met our needs. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if we travel south.

We were dividing our drive to Asheville, NC, in half, and the location just off the highway exit made the stop very convenient. My wife used the exercise room, I found the lobby internet connection to be quite helpful (free use of the color laserjet printer was nice), and the breakfast provided was fine. Service was polite and professional and garnered no complaints. No hestiation to recommend this hotel if you need to stop in the area.

Stayed at the Fairfield Inn in Berea, KY for 3 nights while attending the Rolex 3-Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park. Hotels in most of Lexington and the surrounding area were sold out. Found this location with availability at a good rate. Room was clean and comfortable with a bigger bathroom than other similar hotels we've stayed in. Bed seemed to be a memory-foam type mattress and was very comfortable. Pool and whirlpool areas were clean and in good repair though the whirlpool jets were very weak and the temp of 101 degrees was cooler than I like. Internet access worked well with ethernet line but had trouble connecting to the weak wireless signal.
Breakfast offered microwavable Jimmy Dean brand sausage biscuits, pastries, cereal, milk, etc but was not as good as similar hotel offerings. Also, posted signs for breakfast offerings did not match what was available such as a sign for fresh fruit in front of empty bowls and another sign for warm cinnamon toast no where to be found. This was early in the time window for breakfast so it was not a case of having just run out of the item. Above the microwave a chalk written sign boasted a simple recipe and directions for microwave preparation for Sweet as Honey oatmeal but no brown sugar (a listed ingredient) was available.
Only encountered a couple of staff members but each one was friendly and helpful when asked for assistance. Location of hotel is just off 1-75 so the 40 minute drive to the Horse Park was a direct route which was a bonus. There is a WalMart near the hotel which was handy as well.
Given the clean and comfortable room and the convenient location, I would consider staying here again if in the Berea area.

We usually stay at the Boone Tavern in Berea but decided to try the Fairfield on this trip. We were not disappointed. The place was immaculate, quiet, and comfortable. The continental breakfast was fine. This motel is a good overnight stop or could be a two-nighter for anyone planning to do the sights of Berea.

We stayed at this inn while visiting relatives in the area. No reservations were made in advance. When we checked in, we requested a non-smoking room. We were given "the last no-smoking room available". When we got to the room, it was obviously NOT a non-smoking room. With no other rooms available, we tried to make do. There was still trash on the floor of the room from the previous guest and the bathroom door would not lock. The worst happened on Friday morning. My 15-year old son left his billfold (containing $60) in the room with his key. When we returned that afternoon, the key was there, but the billfold was gone. The manager on duty was rude and inappropriate to my son. The manager the next day made vague promises and said "he would call". Messages were left for the general manager, but none were ever returned. Two weeks later we have not heard from anyone. A police report was filed. Needless to say, we will never return to this inn.

  • Liked — close to family
  • Disliked — the myriad of problems and the attitude of the staff
