Recent guest reviews

Great place. Easily accessible. Jason was very welcoming and knowledgeable with dining in the area.

We traveled from Pittsburgh for a concert and this hotel was super close to the venue and the lady at the front desk (I didnt get her name) was soooooo sweet and helpful. Will definitely stay there again if I ever need to. Breakfast was great too!

Conveniently locarted, restaurants nearvy within walking distance. Enjoyed using the spa and the swimming pool. My room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Liked the firm mattress. The heater was efficient and kept the room comfy. The staff was helpful, mostly young college students, tech savvy. The morning breakfast was instant eggs, fruit and breads.Typical for this type of casual hotel. Parking was free and convenient. I would stay here again. BTW, Andrew at the front desk assisted me in using their printer with my Apple laptop, My thanks to him!

Front desk staff very friendly n helpful Good. personality

Great location, quick and easy check in and check out, clean comfortable room

Hotel was satisfactory but while free the breakfast was less than satisfactory 👎

Bed was a little too hard for my comfort ...but my body is a mattress snob!

I have traveled a lot and have low expectations of most airport hotels. Due to an early departure, I decided to stay at a hotel near the airport and turn in my car the night before. Booked Fairfield based on reviews and proximity. The staff was friendly and made sure I was picked up immediately despite having offered to take two other guests to a local restaurant. Very humane. The room appointments are the latest and designed for the busy traveler. There is somewhere to put your suitcase that doesn't interfere with the seating. The bed linens and mattress were attractive and perfect. In the morning, the breakfast offerings were much more than expected, including good fruit, hard-boiled eggs and waffles. Even the coffee was decent. They kept an eye on me to be sure they had a shuttle available at the right time. The shuttle driver explained that the building was 3 yrs old and had been built from the ground up for noise abatement. It shows. I would stay here again and highly recommend the Fairfield Inn and Suites at the airport.

Close to the city and university. There are a few different eateries right near. My only challenge, but it was my faulty, is that if you are a late riser and housekeeping has passed they do not come back to clean, but if you request towels etc, will they will send someone. Other than that everything was great!

I reserved this hotel because it is very close to everything : walking distance to stores, if you need to buy anything from Kroger to Kohl's .

This hotel was very clean with friendly staff and in a good location. Our unit had two separate rooms, a king size bed in one room and a large area with a sofa bed for our son in the other area. There was a small refrigerator, microwave, and a coffee maker. Breakfast was delicious and fast. We'll definitely be back!!

We just stayed for the International Soccer game there in cbus. The shuttle ran so we didn't have to worry about parking. It ran an extra hour also which saved us a cab trip back. Thank you so much. The hotel was great.

This hotel is very clean & the staff is extremely courteous. I will definitely book a return visit!

Close tothe university, clean rooms, didnt stink. good breakfast (normal stuff)

The rooms were very small, but they were clean. Staff was friendly.

The room was about as clean as you would expect, but other than that we were very disappointed, especially in the shower. It was dirty, in poor shape, and there was no tub, just an open shower with a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor. Perhaps we were placed in a handicap accessible room? But this was not mentioned to us at all. There was black mold in the shower as well. The room also lacked a mini fridge, which was inconvenient for us, and also not mentioned anywhere in the booking process.

Great location at a very good price. When not on a home game, the place is quiet.

Courteous & helpful staff Good Breakfast Comfortable Matress & Pillows

The hotel is near OSU, it is very convient for my business. The staff is friendly. I enjoy it very much.

The staff was fabulous and the location was perfect because I was going to see a concert at OSU. The only issue I had is that the bed was so uncomfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on a hard floor.
