Choose the Fairfield after reading some reviews. We were in town for a show at the Effingham Performance Center. We were really pleased with this place. The room was nice and large, very clean and had a microwave and small fridge. The bathroom was large and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is in a good location. Next time in town we'd stay here again.

The gentleman who checked us in wasn't exactly friendly or welcoming. Just robotic going through the motions of checking us in. The rooms are large, basic, and clean. Very dorm room like. We were on the 4th floor and could still hear the traffic from the freeway but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake. If you are a light sleeper perhaps bring ear plugs. There is a microwave and refrigerator in each room which is helpful. The pool is very small, as is the pool deck. If more than a couple people want to swim it gets crowded fast. The tile around the pool is extremely slippery and doesn't drain well at all; my toddler kept falling down. Breakfast was fine. They had waffles, eggs, cereal, oatmeal. The usual. The hotel has a quiet after 11 pm policy and it seemed to work well as we didn't hear anything late at night. There was a storm that came through early in the morning and the cable went out throughout the hotel. Upon inquiry from the front desk we were told that when it rains the entire town loses cable. I don't really see how that is possible. Especially considering that it had stopped raining hour before we turned our tv on to learn it wasn't working. The interesting part was that the TV was on and working in the breakfast common area when we were down there... If you need a quick, clean place to stop over night while passing through this hotel is fine.

The facility is new and very well maintained. Plenty of parking and easily accessed from I-70. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. Fast and reliable internet. The breakfast had hot and cold offerings. Well stocked and maintained. The counter staff was fine but not able to help with non-standard items. One thing that really impressed me was the staff. The lady in charge of the breakfast area after the breakfast time concluded, she cleaned that area top to bottom. Was even on her knees cleaning the legs and table supports. Other staff wee wiping down the elevator doors. Yes, I was impressed. I will be back!

Our room was spacious and inviting. We arrived late and we were able to check right in. The breakfast the next morning had a big variety of both hot and cold items. It was easy on and off of the interstate.

Was in town for a concert at the Effingham performance center. Very nice clean hotel. The hotel is right off the interstate, easy to get to . Lots of restaurants in the area. The breakfast included with the stay was very good. Will stay here again when in town.

Checking in I saw two other dog- families in the parking lot. This is a great place to rest when putting in the miles with the pooch! When so many places not wanting our canine family, they roll out the red carpet. Clean, a good value and a decent breakfast, I love this place. My only gripe was a spotlight outdoors that shines into the otherwise dark window in last nights room.

We are faithful marriott travelers. We have stayed at this Fairfield Inn several times when driving to Colorado from Ohio. It is a nice Fairfield, clean with comfortable beds. The buffet breakfast is included.

I stayed four nights and was very pleased with my stay. The hotel and room was very clean. The staff was always helpful. The breakfast had a lot of variety and tasted decent. Only a couple of things bothered me but nothing that will prevent me from staying there again. First, the cleaning crew did a very nice job but changed out my towels even though I followed the directions on the card in the bathroom to reuse. On day one I opened the complimentary bath soap and they replaced that everyday too. Kind of wasteful on both parts. The second thing is the coffee bar wasn't well stocked. I don't drink coffee but will drink tea or cocoa. I like my tea with honey but there wasn't any. I know they have it because it was part of the breakfast bar. The cocoa packages were only there on the first night. Neither of these are big deals, just nice to haves. The location is great. Close to everything. I will be staying there at least four times a year. Overall a great stay.

Multiple days in to a long cross country drive, I was relieved to find a Fairfield Inn that was pet friendly. The suite, complete with a real door between living area and bedroom, doesn't cost much more than a room, and is well worth it. Layout of the suite was very comfortable, with an alcove for the fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and a small utility sink, which was great so you don't get much refridgerator compressor noise in either the bedroom or the living area. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Definitely worth making the phone call to confirm they are OK with pets. Not all Fairfield Inns take them, but this one does.

My hubs and I stayed here overnight when driving cross country. I love Marriotts. You know what you're going to get. Clean room, free breakfast and friendly staff. Plus a fitness room/pool to burn off some energy. Nice place.
