Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Augusta2.5 out of 5.0

Very nice Fairfield Inn. I had an executive suite which was better than expected, not like a Residence Inn or other suite style hotels, but really nice. On a side note, there must be a group of guys who owns some of the Marriott franchises in Maine and they obviously are a self deprecating group. I noticed in the elevator the owner is “Dorkland” and if memory serves, the Courtyard in Bangor says “Dorks R Us” or something like that. Aside from that, one thing I would say is this group has a very nice franchise and take their business seriously, although they obviously don’t take themselves too seriously!
We stayed here while passing through, but wouldn't stay here any amount of time. No bar/restaurant in the hotel, but a few restaurants are very close by. They did offer breakfast (included in room price), but it wasn't great....everything was very bland.
If you stop at a travel center on I-95. check out the 'guide' booklets. sometimes they have coupons in them for $78 per night. At that rate, this hotel is a good value. It's clean and the staff is very pleasant. Hotel is fairly quiet. but $120 a night in Augusta in the winter? Ridiculous. Use the coupon. Conveniently located near the Augusta Civic and a large shopping center, but I still prefer shopping in the historic downtown whenever possible. There is a Chinese buffet located across the parking lot - the "Great Wall". It's pretty decent if you like 'packaged' food - good variety, but the quality seemed to have dropped off a bit since last visit in summer of 2017. Back to the hotel - typical "free breakfast" fare of rehydrated eggs, etc., with placitc utensils and paper plates. No recycling to be found in the dining area. I was disappointed that the juice in the machine did not seem to be' real'. I think it's Sunny Delight for OJ and some kind of high fructose corn syrup stuff masquerading as apple juice. No cranberry juice to be found. The Marriott we stayed in a couple weeks ago in Chicago had real juice, and the rooms were about the same price. The TV in the bedroom part of our 'Studio Suite' only had audio; no video. The one in the sitting area worked as expected. The shower head had some plugged nozzle holes or something because the water came out a bit sideways, if at all, on part of it. No place within easy reach (and I'm 6'1") to hang a towel to grab it after showering. Plenty of hot water, though, and the hotel was fairly full and it was -16 outside. The bed is typical Marriott. I found it comfortable, but my Better Half hated it and she tossed and turned all night. The blower in the lobby fireplace "had a broken part and it has been ordered". That was a bit disappointing, as we sat and visited in the lobby with local friends for a while. Seems to me like this place just needs some loving care and a thorough walk-thru by the manager and maintenance supervisor, with a corporate SOP checklist in hand, and it'll be a much happier reflection on Marriott. In their defense, I am sure they had their hands full with an ice storm and two weeks of below zero weather. I have Platinum Elite status with Marriott, so have stayed with them a lot at many properties, if you were curious about my creds.
Pleasantly surprised with the flexibility of the Marriott gang today. Had to change my reservation twice in the same day and actually in two different cities in Maine. Each conversation was pleasant and accommodating. After a fair amount of driving, I was greeted at the Fairfield Inn in Augusta with a pleasant reception and a warm greeting. Oddly enough the young man I spoke with on the phone was also working the front desk when I checked in. One mention of a past visit with a small room, I was immediately taken care of with a bigger room that will serve well for the two nights I am here. GREAT job and outstanding customer service. I’ll definitely be back...thank you!
My wife and I were lucky to have stayed here one night after we were forced out of our hotel in Edgecomb due to the very bad storm that caused fallen trees, downed power poles and lines causing loss of electricity and blocked roads across the State. Check-in was easy and pleasant with staff being informative and helpful. The room was not very big, basic but efficient for our short stay. There was no coffee maker, mini-refrigerator or microwave in the room. The room was clean and quiet. Complimentary breakfast was not that good but acceptable. Choices were limited. Having stayed at several other hotels in Augusta I probably would not select this hotel on a future visit.
I travel extensively for school and I stop here more than I would like to admit. Stayed on the second floor and there was a significant leak from the upstairs bathroom to my rooms ceiling. To the point where the carpet on the floor was wet in my room. This is usually a great place to stay. It is very safe. Very safe area. Tons of business people that stay here. Staff are available at all hours and give great suggestions on the surrounding area. If management could just fix that leak before the next guest this would have been a perfect stay. No other issues with this stay and it was CLEAN!! Besides the leak I would have thought this was a brand new room
Stayed one night at the Fairfield Inn in Augusta, ME. I checked in with my phone before arriving so it was fast and easy. Room was average but clean. Room location assigned was not great, near side door exit and it slammed shut every 5 mins. Overall, it was an ok stay. I would stay again but different room location.
We stayed at this Fairfield Inn last year and hoped they would have room for us this year which they did. The check in was friendly and efficient and our room was clean, and quiet with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The breakfast the following day was also very nice. It is handy to several nice restaurants and is close to I 95. Will stay there again.
I love Marriott - am Gold Premier. But, due to a huge State of Maine power failure - and bad luck for Marriott...I had to check out and find a new place. I won't tell you where I ended up...but follow my reviews to see my new go-to place in this town. Nothing against the Fairfield inn....the staff is great, nice rooms, good breakfast, but a new sheriff is in town and it makes you old fave good but not nearly as good as the new competition.
Traveling from DC to Maine and really enjoyed staying here. Had a smooth late night check-in got a very convenient room to the parking lot. AC worked great and room was quiet. Breakfast was kept full of food and staff was very friendly! Will recommend and be back to stay again if passing through.
