This was my first trip to Beckley since the late 90's. Granted, I know that much has changed in almost 15 years.
This Fairfield is in the middle of a total remodel to the property. After talking with management, I learned that original property is around 30 or so years old. You can tell on exterior that this was not originally a Fairfield.
I stayed on top floor which is basically finished with remodel. Because I was Marriott Gold Rewards member, I was upgraded to suite. They are adding 2 suites on end of each floor. You have normal room with an additional sitting room attached--includes small sofa, chair and second TV.
In terms of furnishings, everything had been upgraded--new carpet, flat panel TV's, newer furniture and very good bedding. I had a great night's sleep. Bathroom was definitely not totally redone--but was clean. Bathroom would probably be the one area that I say is lacking compared to higher-end properties.
I believe the rest of hotel is scheduled to be finished within a couple of months.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. They had large breakfast area downstairs. I didn't eat the complimentary breakfast so I can't comment. but the area looked clean and inviting.
All in all, much better than I expected. Rate here was better than several similar properties I priced in Beckley. One of the way reasons why I selected this Fairfield.
Yes, the exterior does look dated. but the property is in the middle of finishing the remodel inside. I think this is an above average place. If you have stayed in Fairfields before, this is comparable to most I have stayed in--if not better.
