“First meeting at Fairfield Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Everyone was very nice and very willing to help. The room was set-up exactly as we wanted and the staff was very quick to respond to us when we had a change to be made. I'm sure we will be going back there in the future for additional meetings. Kudos to Josh Gross who was very exceptional in responding to our requests.

Thanks for making our meeting a great one.

This is a sub-par Fairfield Inn on a pure facility basis. The location is sketchy and the rooms are worn and tired. The wallpaper was lumpy and peeling, the bed linens were thin, and the towels were dingy. The elevators were small and creaky, and one was out of service when I was there. The breakfast was standard inexpensive hotel fare. In fairness, a great restaurant/market area is very close, with a good Italian place, a farmers' market, wine shop, and seafood and meat markets.

The staff and management are generally friendly and helpful. When I told the front desk at checkout about a minor issue, the manager overheard and offered me points for my trouble.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view room away from the elevator and icemaker. I did, but got a parking lot/freeway...

My mother stays at this hotel when she gets her chemotherapy treatments at the nearby hospital. The staff there welcomes her with get well cards and treat her like royalty when she is staying there. I have never experienced better customer service in my 39 years on this earth. There is nearby shopping, theaters, and good places to eat. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast there is very good and the servers are very helpful. By far the best hotel that I've been to ever!

The Fairfield Inn in Charleston WV was a great stay by far! The staff treated me with respect and catered my every request promptly. Location of the hotel in relation to my work was ridiculously close and accomodating. I'd definately stay here again in the futrue.

Room Tip: 8th Floor!!

We called from the road in Ohio, on our way to Charleston to find a place to stay for one night.
Bobby answered the phone and was very helpful/polite/professional. She gave us information on the best discount rate (Federal /AAA/AARP) and clear directions to the hotel. Once there, she pleasantly checked us in. I happened to mention that though we were with children, it was my wife/my anniversary.

When we got our extra bedding sent to the room, low and behold there was a “Happy Anniversary” card from Bobby and Sherry. THAT CARD MADE OUR WEEK! It is nice to know that thoughtful people and staff still exist. We found it in WV in Charleston at the Fairfield Inn. Dave and Jori and kids.

This hotel is very clean. I booked 3 rooms to accomodate my family. All of the rooms were very nice. The rooms with double beds had excellent beds. The king room was a different story. The bed was the worst I've ever had at any hotel, anywhere, period. Words can't begin to describe how bad the king mattress was. I alerted the front desk staff person the next morning, but she didn't seem too concerned about my lack of sleep due to a lousy bed. Even though the bed was terrible, i still give the hotel a "very good" because the other beds were really good, the hotel is very clean, the breakfast was very good for a hotel in this price range, and the pool and hot tub were great. I would stay here again, but would check out the mattress as soon as I entered the room, and be ready to ask for a different room if needed.

Room Tip: The king bed we had was worse than a hammock. Stay in a room with 2 beds.

After reviewing hotels in this area I thought about just staying in my car. But this hotel was nothing like the reviews. Yes it's a strange location and the elevators are small. But it's a small hotel in Charleston WV so it's not gonna be The Ritz. But it was very clean, the staff was very nice, and the breakfast was good. We were in town for a wedding and needed our rooms early and they let us have two rooms right away. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and helpful.
