I stayed at the Fairfield Inn for 12 days on a business trip in late March/early April:

The Good: Friendly staff, soft bed, clean room, good breakfast

The Bad: Unreliable Internet connection, not enough fridges/microwaves for every room, tv had a buzzing noise to it, paper-thin walls.

The Ugly: Television and dresser had some kind of sticky syrup spilled down the front of them.

The Review: Some folks on my business trip called two weeks in advance to reserve a fridge and microwave. But, as in the case of Seinfeld's car rental agency: they know how to MAKE the reservation, they just don't know how to HOLD the reservation. There were no fridges available when we checked in. I was told there was a 30-person list ahead of me! After the first week (and noticing a lot of people had checked out), I requested a fridge and was given one by that night.

The internet connection was spotty. I had trouble most evenings when lots of others were on it, also. The constant answer from the front desk was "we've called someone to come take a look at it." I'm sure it was probably just that their connection can't handle so many users at once.

Couldn't really watch tv because every time I turned it on there was a loud, high-pitched buzzing sound coming from it. It would come and go, at least, so I was able to watch a little. But, there was at least a little entertainment when the police chased someone through the building and since the walls are paper thin, you can hear everything your neighbors are doing/saying.

To end the review on a positive note: the bed was comfortable and the free breakfast was good. They had make-your-own Belgium waffles, French toast, eggs (not all that good), breads, cereals, juices and coffee. Plus, a free USA Today left at the door most mornings (didn't get one the first couple of days).

Would highly recommend...great place to stay. Very, very clean. Bed was one of the most comfortable I ever slept in. Could occassionally hear people in next room. Breakfast was above average with a nice selection of hot and cold. Reasonably priced. Would definitely stay there again.

Had an appointment in the early morning in North Jersey so we wanted to stay as close as possible. Our rate was $165 (AAA) which isn't bad considering the area. Our room was clean and comfortable. There are several places to eat around. It was St. Patrick's Day so we went to Benigan's which was east on the highway. The parking lot is a bit strange. It was a challenge getting on the highway. There was only a oneway entrance from the highway so in order to leave you had to go out the side and make a tricky left hand turn. There were also several potholes in the parking lot to look out for.

The customer service was excellent. Check in and check out were both smoothe. We were extremely pleased with the breakfast. This was the best Fairfield Inn breakfast I have had. There was a huge area and real dishes were put out for use. IN addition to regular breakfast food normally seen in a Fairfield, they had scrambled eggs, fresh bacon, and biscuits. We could only stay the one night and could not enjoy the breakfast as much as we would have liked so we will need to return next time we are in the area.

  • Liked — Room, customer service, breakfast
  • Disliked — there was no pool. This is mentioned on their website so I wasn't surprised.

I was pleased with my stay at the Fairfield Inn. My king room was spacious and very clean, the bed, with 5 down pillows, was one of the most comfortable I've slept on in recent memory, and the staff was courteous and helpful.

The hotel's location is near I-80 and I-287, but not in a busy area. I paid $79+tax on a Saturday night, which seemed very reasonable for someplace this close to New York. When I visited the city the next morning, it was less than half an hour away, although I am certain that traffic would be much heavier on weekdays. There does not seem to be any train station nearby.

The clerk told me that the free breakfast would start on Sunday at 7:00, but when I came down to the lobby at 6:20 it was already set out and the staff was very welcoming. They offered a nice selection of fresh fruit and juice, pastries, eggs, cereal and several other items.

Overall I was very pleased and would definitely stay here again.

I spent one Friday night at this property. My room was fresh and clean and very quiet. It had an incredibly comfortable bed and I slept great! The free continental breakfast the next day was pretty decent, too. They had oatmeal and you-bake waffles in addition to the usual bagels, muffins and dry cereal. All in all this was a good value for an above average hotel.

  • Liked — Quiet and a very comfortable bed.
