We were in town visiting college friends and decided to redeem points at the Fairfield. Overall, our stay was positive, staff were polite, and the room was well-appointed.
When we arrived mid-evening, no one was at the desk. After waiting a while, we eventually used the house phone to call reception, and the man working the front desk answered. He explained he was the only one there at the time, and apologized for the delay. He asked us if we still wanted two queen beds, and after we indicated our preference for a King, he assigned us to a small King suite. The room was slightly larger than others on the floor and had a small sofa, coffee table, microwave, and refrigerator.
The bed was comfy and the room was clean. There was a small bottle of water and bag of cookies on the desk.
Admittedly, there were a couple of oddities... First, the bathroom vent switch was locked "on". We wondered why, but then we noticed that the shower curtain didn't reach down to the edge of the tub, so water spilled out when we took showers in the morning. Second, even though the bathroom fan was always on, the fan in the room *could not* be turned on, and was hard-wired to "auto". The room became somewhat stuffy, so we lowered the temperature to compensate. I can't imagine the A/C bills at this place if everyone is doing what we did, and the A/C and heat is being sucked out through the bathroom 24/7.
Breakfast was good, with tasty scrambled eggs and sausage. When the orange juice ran out, it was promptly refilled.
Overall, we had a good stay and would return. Hopefully the hotel will invest in taller shower curtains (or lower the bar by an inch) so the showers don't flood and they can stop running the bathroom vents 24/7.
