Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Harrisonburg

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here while passing through Harrisonburg on our way down I-81 to Tennessee. There are many different hotels to choose from in town but if you’re looking for one set back away from most of the stores and commotion of main street, check out the Fairfield Inn & Suites. Quietly tucked away back towards the James Madison University campus, this hotel feels very upscale while still remaining at a reasonable price per night. The staff were pleasant and the rooms were spacious with comfortable beds and pillows. What makes the Fairfield Inn & Suites exceptional is the amazing continental breakfast offered each morning. Make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, cheese omelets, bacon, sausage, yogurts, fruit, bagels, and cereals – really anything you can imagine. I was particularly impressed with the cheese omelets with the additional toppings like salsa and hot sauce. These are the little things that may not seem like much, but they add to a guest’s experience. I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip through Harrisonburg.

First time visit in a Fairfield Inn and we would stay again.The desk clerk was friendly upon arrival and told us where the area restaurants were located and the pool hours for the grand kids. The hotel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The hot buffet breakfast was excellent and the food very good. Grandchildren enjoyed their breakfast especially the fresh strawberries and other fresh berries.The grandchildren swam in the pool the Pm before and had a grand time releasing some of the energy from the trip. Would recommend this Inn to anyone traveling and also check for the coupons at the border as you can get some good deals.We will stay at the Fairfield Inn in the future after staying at his one.

We had a group booking and I organized the reservations. From the general manager to the sales director to every staff member, the people at this hotel make the stay. The hotel itself is updated and on the nicer end for a Fairfield but it is the staff which shines.

The hotel is clean, fresh and modern. We've stayed at this property twice and had enjoyable stays both times. The breakfast is good and the location is convenient. We especially enjoyed visiting "A Dream Come True" playground nearby with our daughter. Highly recommend!

This hotel is seven years old, but it is spotlessly clean. The staff is not only friendly, but also helpful. The breakfast had something for everyone. I loved the vegan sausage. Great bed. The location is easy to find and easy to get to many, many restaurants, both chain and local.

The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to JMU, it's cleanliness, and the friendliness of the staff. However, pass on the free breakfast -- the smell of the vegan sausage was nauseating. The walls are paper thin, so think about having some white noise with you so that you can sleep.

Front staff was friendly and helpful as we were needing last minute accommodations. Price was cheaper than other options nearby. Location is very convenient to interstate, JMU, and many restaurants. Front lobby and room was very clean and modern. Room was quiet. Indoor pool is small but clean with plenty of dry towels. Gym has treadmills and dumbbells. Breakfast selection was great and staff did a great job keeping things tidy and stocked. We will definitely stay here again.

Offered wonderful discount for wedding party and guests. Cleanest place I have ever stayed. Staff pleasant and helpful. Offer full breakfast. Fantastic. Checkout time a plus. Thank you for your service.

We have stayed at this location a few times over the last few years when we travel north and back and have always enjoyed staying there because of friendliness 0f the staff and access to many eating places

We were doing the Skyline drive and needed a place to stay for the night. When we arrived I noticed there were only 2 Handicap parking spots. I am handicapped and have a problem walking at times. When I went in, I mentioned to the two desk clerks, only two Handicap parking spots for a big hotel, they looked at each other smiled and the female snickered. Instead of saying there were more out back and on the side the actually laughed at me. Very rude and unprofessional. The free breakfast was not all that great. Vegan sausage, no meat. I understand that there are vegans, but what about the meat lovers. The breakfast is for vegans. This is a Mariot affiliated hotel and we had a bad experience with the Mariot in Peabody, Ma. Will never stay in a Mariot or affiliated hotel again. I will say the rooms are great. Ask for a room close to the elevators, but was more than half way down the hall. My opinion, not handicap friendly.
