Lets start by saying a fairfield inn almost never ranks ahead of a marriott courtyard. Smaller breakfast areas, less selection on buffets, smaller pools as well as rooms. So this fairfield is no different. Cost of room was the same as the courtyard $170, which is outrageous when compared to normal hotel costs. The hotel was alright, overpriced, decent stay, slightly dated hotel. Not worth the money, wouldn't go back.

Stayed: July 2007

We have stayed at this Fairfield four different times and each time we are so pleased that we chose this hotel! The staff are always nice, Aggie at the front desk is very helpful! The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the location is great!

We stayed at this hotel, Feb. 17th to the 19th, 2006. We went with a hockey team, novice division. The check in was quick and easy. There are 3 floors and an elevator. According to my husband the beds were "the greatest he ever slept in." The rooms were clean, neat, nice smelling, new looking. Shower was good. The staff was kind, and very helpful. Aggie at the front desk was great to deal with. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The breakfast was good enough for us, cereal, eggs, waffles, bagels, muffins, juices, coffee, fruit, etc. In the evening we went to the room where they serve breakfast and played cards. We were able to bring our drinks in. The hotel is in a good location. It would be a bit of a walk to the convenience store. Close to the mall and shopping outlets. Close restaurants are La Senorita and Applebee's. Speaking of restaurants we ate at this restaurant called Boone's. MMMMMMMMMM! I had the snow crab and my husband had the perch (enough to feed a couple of people). One guy we were with had an 18 oz. steak. It was huge! I'd definitely go back.

This hotel was very nice. I was actually disappointed that I only stayed one night. The staff was very friendly. Rooms were super clean. I think the bed was the most comfortable one I've ever slept on at a hotel.
We had an early flight to catch, but the staff had breakfast items out prior to the actual published opening hour. So that was great.

The back of the key card mentions a couple local restaurants and that they'll give you a free 30 minute phone card if you show them your receipt.

Overall, this was a great hotel and I would definetly stay here again.

The people behind the desk are great. They listen carefully to questions, and never seem put out. I have requested assistive technology for deaf and hard of hearing patrons for my non-smoking, and have been pleased with the response. I can go to sleep in peace knowing that all the alerting devices are in place such as a vibrating alarm clock and phone signaler, a flashing doorknocker and of course a flashing smoke detector that is set up properly. Of course there is captioning for the TV. Besides the assistive devices, the accommodations are very comfortable and in excellent condition. The breakfasts are more than just your average continental-style with many options.

This hotel was very clean, staff was very helpful and friendy. Room was great. Jaccuzzi was immaculate. You could watch TV from the hot tub.
It was all in all a great experiance.
Would recommend highly.
Also Cracker Barrel resturant was only across the parking lot.
