I chuckled when I read the review from the man awaiting the birth of his grand baby. That's exactly why we were in Clovis, in Sept. Must be the water. Anyway, we were at guests of the Fairfield for 7 nights as well and though we spent little time there (leaving first thing in the morning to have breakfast with the kids and returning after 10pm every night) the hotel and staff left us with a very favorable impression.
There was a foul up on our reservations...totally our fault...and the Fairfield came through for us with flying colors. Our room was large, with a sitting area, and the bathroom was larger than the one at the large Marriott we stay at in Mesa...plenty of room to blow dry your hair while the other is showering. The room was made up and fresh every day. It was nice coming back to that. (We were surprised and pleased to have brand new, put in the previous day, carpeting! First time I've gone shoeless in a hotel in years!) We were in the last room on the second floor and couldn't have found it more convenient. Zipped flown the stairs and out the door never having to wait for an elevator and getting a few exercise steps in to boot.
We never did eat breakfast there but I will say it was well attended so they must be doing something right!
The laundry facilities were clean and the machines worked the way the were supposed to...clothes dry in 40 minutes which was a huge relief. Some places you can't carry enough quarters for the dryers!
The little "store" next to the front desk was handy when the " gee, do you feel like ice cream?" devil hit. They had TV dinner type items stocked which could really be a godsend when you just have to have a little something to top your tank.
The Fairfield is most certainly a cut above the rest in Clovis. I would recommend this hotel to all prospective grandparents and anyone else looking for a clean, quiet (we never heard neighbors, could have been luck) property at an affordable price in Clovis. Note the base is a good 15 minute drive if that's were you'll be heading. Also, Portales is probably 20 minutes drive, both easy drives but on cruddy, beat up roads. Come on NM DOT, show Clovis some love!
One more thing; I am not sure why this is listed as a two and a half star hotel? Maybe if we were in a large metropolis but in Clovis the Fairfield is definitely 4 stars.
