This was a great hotel. When we checked in the girl at the front desk was very nice and welcoming. We got a little welcome bag for our granddog traveling with us. I was in a walking boot and she even set us up in a room across from the elevator. At first we were concerned the noise level would be too much but that wasn't an issue at all. Rooms must be more soundproof than most. We got to our room and looked around. Initially it appeared a bit worn. However everything was very clean and the set up was excellent. For a base room there was plenty of space for 2 adults, 2 teens and a dog. Our next stop was coffee in the lobby. I was impressed with little touches like lemon packets for tea. They also had infused water - which I love! Strawberry-kiwi is an excellent combination! Later in the evening they also had cookies. During the evening I enjoyed the pool while my husband used the work out room. The only complaint here was the cooler in the work out room was out if water and the container of disinfectant wipes was empty. When we returned to our room we called the front desk and they took care of it right away. Breakfast the next morning was excellent! So many choices! Eggs, mini omelets, pork sausage patties, veggie sausage patties  (loved them!), cereal, yogurt, breads, waffles (with strawberry toppings!), fresh fruit...anything we could think of. I loved having healthy choices. It was one of the best breakfasts I ever had in a hotel. Great stay! We will be back next year!

The hotel was nice. Rooms large and clean. No good restaurants in walking distance and since the hotel is right off the expressway, which is convenient it is very busy in this area. The breakfast was terrible. Tasteless and cold and that goes for the coffee as well.

The rooms were clean. My wife caught the attendants wiping the top of every door trim one morning. When I asked one of them, she said, "Yes, we clean them. That keeps down allergies and sneezing." She reminded me of my benefits. The oatmeal bar was abundant and delicious: brown sugar, raisins, dates, pecans, almonds, and cinnamon. More in the breakfast was delicious. The two ladies working in the kitchen followed each person leaving breakfast with a table wipe down. And they were friendly and smiled.

Clean rooms, clean pool and whirlpool, nice breakfast and most importantly great, friendly staff. I've stayed at this hotel a few times on my way to visit my dad and will always use this hotel. Con isn't location to many restaurants also.

We had two rooms, one was a suite, for wife, dau. & son in law and two young grandchildren. Service was great, they gave us rooms across from each other and provided everything we needed. Even a sleeping crib for youngest, brought additional linens without being asked and checked several time for any other items we needed. Was a great visit.

We stayed in this hotel during our return to Florida following Hurricane Irma during October 2017. It was immaculate and very comfortable, especially the beds. The pillows are a bit firm but otherwise I slept well. The free breakfast was primarily carbs, with great breads but the eggs and sausage were unremarkable.

This Fairfield Inn was a great place to stay. The entire place was spotless, well kept and seemed to be efficiently run. Being over 65 yr. old, we were pleasantly surprised when the person who checked us in asked my husband..."Are you over 60?" He said yes...and she said that will give you a discount on your room...making the King room less than $85 a night! What a pleasant surprise that the management was trying to save us some money!! The room was a nice size, and the complimentary breakfast buffet was perfect. I even had a friendly conversation with the woman who was working the buffet, keeping all the items well stocked. All in all, a very clean and pleasant place to stay when you are n the area!

Great Fairfield can tell it's been recently refreshed cookies at check in fantastic as well as lime water. Pool and hot tub ok as well. Clean rooms comfortable bed and we had a whirlpool tub In our room and it was refreshing

A dog friendly and people friendly place. Clean and comfortable, they give out a pet bag for your dogs with a biscuit and 2 poop bags inside! They had a beautiful breakfast for us too. We highly recommend this place with or without your furbabies. There is a 3 side fenced area between the hotel and the highway to let them run freely if you have good recall control. We met a manager, Dee, who made sure all was well with our furbabies and ourselves, shared a cute picture of her dog Aspen McSomething. The hotel because of the eclipse was completely full but the staff was not hurried or discourteous ever. The grounds are clean. The rooms are clean. The people are kind and efficient at their jobs. We can't say enough good things about this place.

Effingham is the half-way point for our regular travels to visit family, so we've stayed at this Fairfield Inn three times now. It has been a great stay every time. The location is convenient to the highway, but not close enough that traffic noise is a problem. The decor is up to date and the rooms are always clean. The pool and hot tub are nice and there is a good variety of food for breakfast. The staff is courteous and friendly. No complaints.
