This hotel is worth every penny, with the Marriott name i always trust them, and yet again was very pleased. For the area being mainly rest stop chain hotels and restaurants the Fairfield Inn is clean, safe and cozy. The hotel sits right off of i95, lit and well maintained. When you pull into the hotel you see that it is almost motel style with 2 of the lower levels outside hallway and the third level indoors, we got the first level which was great to unload our luggage right to the room. The lobby is a smaller area with a modern edge, front desk was granite, standing over it was a happy front desk staff who checked us in under a minute and really cared about our needs and told us the time for breakfast and more. The lobby had a computer with internet access and I believe a printer. Vending machines/bathroom and a breakfast room all very clean and seemed new. There was another door for access to the other side of the hotel which also led to the heated pool with fresh towels. As well as an indoor card key access fitness room with fresh towels and a t.v. Our room was very clean just a bit worn down carpet, but the hotel was renovating rooms piece by piece. Although we got one of the older rooms it was fine. Bathroom was clean with separate sink area. A great working AC in the room and 70 some channels were great, and the Marriott bedding package with "crisp" duvets and sheets that Marriott does great, means no more gross bed spread, everything is fresh and clean for you. The bathroom was clean and Pan-teen shower amenities were great. Free wifi in the lobby and free plug-in internet in each room on the desk. Traveling as a family of 4, we thought one room would be ok. We were WRONG the room only fits 2 double beds, and no rollaway allowed. So i would opt for 2 rooms or more as necessary. Although it was a snug night we heard no noise from road nor people. The free hot breakfast was great with fresh bagels, donuts, breads, jimmy dean hot sandwiches made fresh, make your own belgian waffles, oatmeal, dried fruits, spices, cereals, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, milk and more. The breakfast attendant was devoted only to help you get what you need and clean the area/tables after each use, as well as stock more food/drink. It was great.
Complaints: I only wished that the room was newer, the carpet was worn. But with the renovation they are doing this should be solved. I cant wait to see the new rooms. (which should be done soon)
There were great walkable restaurants including Outback, Olive Garden and something called Shoony's. There also was more drivable restaurants that looked good too.
Walkable target/mall was nice to have so close.
The nearby hotels are Quality inn (which looked run down) and some motels, so your best bet is to do this Marriott. Athough just a couple of minutes south there were some other Marriotts including courtyard, springhill and a new residence inn. But this will be the lowest price marriott in the area most likely, but has just what you need. and just a bit more money than those motels your going to get a lot more ammenities including piece of mind that your getting a clean and safe hotel. For my family this is the best rest stop coming or going on i95. I hope this helps you!
