“Great value, very nice stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

I booked this hotel (8:30 pm) when a business meeting ran later than expected. I booked it because of price. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very fresh and modern and the staff was great. Close by is a Super Target and Southpoint Mall. A fast food restaurant is located just yards away across the street. The hotel is very quiet although located near a busy thoroughfare. Breakfast was standard, but they have a great variety of teas. My only issue was that the lock on my room required holding the card at a slanted angle before it would open.

I stayed at this property before the renovations and was not pleased. I must admit the renovations and name change served them well! The decor was fabulous, the complimentary breakfast was tasty and the beds slept well. The television offered a good choice of channels as well as walking distance to target and South Point Mall. I actually wanted to extend my stay.

Whomever did the refurbishment of this hotel really must have been busy. It is virtually indistinguishable from a brand new hotel inside.

Check in was efficient and fast. The room was clean and fresh. Fairfield does not have the best beds in the industry but they're serviceable.

Three minor details detract from a 5 start experience.

1) The spout for the tub is loose and needs to be braced in the wall and recaulked (Rm 204).

2) The chocolate items in the market area are placed directly in front of the exhaust from the drink cooler. Thus chocolate items are melted or at least soggy. If I'm paying $2 for a Kitkat or Hershey bar, I expect it to be pristine.

3) The vinyl coating on the handrails and ladder in the pool are peeling off below the water line.

Beautiful hotel, large king room with sitting area, microwave and mini fridge. Great exercise room, clean pool and nice breakfast. Shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Ten minutes from airport and UNC. Nicer than many more expensive hotels!

This Hotel changed from Sheraton to Marriot last week. They have excellent complimentary breakfast, a great fitness center (open 24 hours) and an inside swimming pool (open until 10 PM). The Hotel is very next to the Shopping Southpoint mall and right aside Target (1 min driving). The staff is very nice and the price is similar to other hotels around this location.
