“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

I have stayed at other Marriott hotels but never at a Fairfield Inn.
This hotel was clean, the room was not large but that is typical of most New York hotels, but there was adequate space. The welcome gift of the bottles of water, cookies and an welcome email from the hotel manager was a nice touch. The free breakfast was quite adequate and I was able to get a meal as a vegetarian. Luis, the manager in the restaurant was quite accommodating and was able to prepare something that I could eat on Thanksgiving Day.
The shuttle service to the hotel was on time from Federal Circle.
I would return to this hotel....

Room Tip: I was on the 4th floor and it was quiet.

This was the perfect one-night hotel near JFK airport. My excellent rating reflects that this is not your typical Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Unlike most-- this one has a restaurant serving lunch/dinner. This is a huge bonus when you have a late arriving flight and are in need of food. In addition, the prices were very reasonable.
As mentioned by others, free shuttle service is offered from the airport. This location is beside a roadway and there is not much within walking distance. It's not a pretty area. The next morning, in daylight, we did notice a Burger King and a convenience store one block to the south.
The public rooms and hallways were newly re-done. New carpet was obvious. The room itself was tight and the furniture did look a bit "used." However, the mattress/bed linens and bathroom towels were in excellent condition.
The shuttle service to the MTA subway stop was about a 15-minute ride == Jamaica train/subway station. Note: train tickets are sold at the windows near the street entrance. NEW YORK SUBWAY (MTA) tickets were available DOWNSTAIRS. We bought the MTA seven day pass for $30 and that covered us for everyplace we needed to go in New York City.
You can bet I'll stay at this hotel again when an airport hotel is needed.

I generally stay at Marriott brand hotels and usually stay away from the Fairfield brand and opt for Courtyards; however, I will definitely opt for this Fairfield if I stay over night near JFK. For this level of hotel property it was extremely well maintained, great staff, decent breakfast buffet and there was shuttle service to the airport. You can hear airplanes take off, but it wasn't overly noisy. Definitely a very good, inexpensive option near JFK for an overnight.

Close to airport, with a shuttle driver that was on the ball. Clean, well equipped, and perfect for a 14 hour lay over. A typical Fairfield Inn, but I would not want to use it for more than an overnite.

Room Tip: Traffic noise can be heard, and elevators are a bit awkward - must go down a level from reception t...

Arrived at JFK at 10am, went to the hotel shuttle pick up at Federal Circle. There is supposed to be a courtesy phone there but it was not working properly so make sure to have the hotel's phone number on hand. I was lucky and the shuttle arrived within 5 minutes.

Check in was fast and friendly and room was ready for early arrival. The room was a bit on the small side, with a good king bed, large LED TV, free Wi-Fi, not much of a view. Clean bathroom. Some free bottles of water offered with a cookie was appreciated.

There was a decent gym on premise, no pool, and a good breakfast available although as I was leaving early, I was only able to get coffee and a good muffin. Shuttle departure was prompt both for airport and subway drop off (although there is no pick up from Jamaica station, you must go back to Federal Circle for pick up).

Overall, à good choice.

The neighborhood is bad and you should not walk outside. Very close to JFK. Shuttle service. Hotel is ok - standard Fairfield Inn hotel. Clean with no frills. For some reason the bathroom soap smelled terrible. Water temperature in shower varied forcing me to keep readjusting the hot water. Restaurant - bar on premises which is at best adequate. Good clam chowder, mediocre pasta. Free breakfast was available at 5 am which was appreciated as I had a very early flight. Business center. Fitness room. Fine value for the location and probably would stay there again if I had an early morning flight.

This is a very comfortable hotel for an overnite stay. This is definite NOT a place to stay for more than just an overnite where you leave the next morning- the neighborhood is really rough and you don't want to be out and about. I got in late and needed something to eat and the nice desk clerks shared some to-go menu options and told us about one or two walkable options. We chose to walk across to the disgusting Chinese food place across the street- don't do it to yourself- the quality of the meat was the worst I've had in recent memory.

The staff at the front desk are very nice and professional. Rooms are relatively small yet very clean and comfy. The most important things you want at a Fairfield- clean bathroom and comfy bed were A+. You're not looking for anything fancy at a Fairfield- just simple basic stuff and they exceeded it. Breakfast also had plenty of options for a quick morning breakfast.

Definitely would stay here again if I got in late in the future.
