I have always stayed in Marriott hotels because they are always up-to-date, clean, and in good shape. This was a major disappointment. Maybe if this was a $79/night hotel I would have seen why, but at $180/night, this is unbelievable. I do not recommend ever staying here until they do a major overhaul on this place. The front desk staff were very friendly so I didn't want to put this on them, but I should have just slept in my car....

Traveling on business and always choose Marriot for consistency. I was shocked at the price for one night but booked late and other options weren't available. Double what I usually pay for a Fairfield. On check in I was told that everyone was full due to a Packers pre-season game so supply and demand! Ridiculous. The clerk Colin was very nice and helpful. The morning staff was also friendly. Only reason they are getting two stars vs. one. Room was large but needed updated. Bed was not too comfortable as the mattress was old, too. No work out facilities. You have to use the Residence Inn around the corner or they will provide a pass to the local YMCA. Not too convenient!! Hotel is behind the times. Needs updated. Breakfast was as expected for a Fairfield and the did provide a bagged breakfast if you were on the move. That was nice.

During the AirVenture week this is a very pricy place to stay. Due to management issues with the staff, rooms were not serviced/cleaned for the entire week we were there. They only serviced rooms for new arrivals, if you were in you were a prisoner of deteriorating conditions. We did what we could, empty our own trash, cleaned sink, made beds. For what we paid for these rooms it was robbery. Unfortunately during the show other hotels were fully booked so we felt trapped and should have called the health department to deal with this place.

Not going to lie this place is due for renovation... the beds were clean and the TV worked if u know what I mean. just a fair warning. Not what you would expect for your typical Fairfield inn. The staff however, super super nice and helpful! Quick and helpful check in. Great location. No hot tub, free parking. To be honest though,I'd stay again.

So-so stay. Good: clean room with good water pressure and good A/C Bad: mattress so soft husband and I had to hug the edges of bed to keep from rolling to center; carpet in breakfast area is stained and filthy; ran out of oatmeal at 8:10 and breakfast over at 9 and was told it would take too long to make more; no planning ahead to have more ready; staff didn't really care

Just my opinion, but in no way do I think this hotel should ever cost $195/night. That is particularly the case when numerous youth sports teams are staying there. We've traveled with our own kids for tournaments, and I'm all for that. It can be a great learning experience for kids and a lot of fun for them and their families. However, the setup of this hotel makes it a poor experience for anyone staying there who is not affiliated with the kids and teams. The very small lounge area is right inside the front door, across from the reception desk. Understandably, people congregate there, but that makes for a loud and chaotic first impression. The chaos continues, because the pool is straight ahead in the middle of the main hallway as you walk to the rooms, elevators, etc. During our stay, there were at least 15 kids playing in the pool at all times. There were also lots of kids running up and down the halls and playing outside our windows on the grass. A ball bounced off our window at one point. One positive surprise was that, other than the running feet, we were unable to hear noise from the pool or adjacent rooms once we closed the door to our room. It was just getting to and from our room that felt like running the gauntlet. A tip: if you need a rollaway, check in early. We really needed one and requested it in advance. However, since they distribute them on a first-come, first-served basis, we did not get one, much to our kids' displeasure, because they were all gone by the time we arrived around 3 PM. We arrived at breakfast to find all of the egg and sausage trays empty. The woman working had a poor attitude. Rather than apologizing for the inconvenience, she snapped that it was all coming. The food did arrive after some time. No smiles or friendliness at all from that one. Our room was clean and everything it it was in good condition and worked fine.

We arrived late from Milwaukee and were greeted with a speedy check-in and a nice cold bottle of water! Room was large and beds were very comfortable. Good variety on TV and checkout was nicely set at noon for all rooms!

The rooms and facility was clean and comfortable. The beds were softer. There were no refrigerators or microwaves in the room. Had been promised a roll away, but that was not available when we checked in. The breakfast was very good; waffle maker, hot entree, and sides plus other fruit, juices, and oatmeal. Location was great. Restaurants and mall nearby, so if you desire other options for meals, they are all over. Also, very close to the expressway.

Typical clean and satisfactory Fairfield Inn. breakfast was better then most. Next to the Mall with plenty of shopping opportunities. World of Beers and 5 Guys Burgers across the street for easy access. Price was $115 on Friday and Saturday but $135 on Sunday- Memorial Day.

The hallway floors and floor in our room we uneven. Little odd, not enough to trip you up but was interesting. The air conditioner was loud and we had a dehumidifier in the corner of our room. Wouldn't want to stay here when it is really hot.
