So we stayed here the night before we left on a Western Carribean cruise. We picked the hotel mostly because it was on the lowest points tier for Marriott (my mother in law is a member). The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious, there is a laundry facility on site (came in handy), the staff was courteous and pleasant, etc. However, it's in a not so nice area. I had to run to run get dinner late and go to Wal-Mart for last minute items. I couldn't leave the back entrance because there was a posted security guard for the whole night. As I ran these errands, I never felt threatened, but as I drove the neighborhood, I did feel uneasy and the houses had barred windows, Wal-Mart had a heavy security presence, etc. I think if you were there early and didn't leave the hotel at night or you are more comfortable in an urban setting (we are from a small town), it would be just fine. Great value if you are using Marriott points.
Standard room and standard rather sparse Fairfield furnishings. HBO and Cinemax channels is nice for variety The room I had was either poorly placed, poorly insulated or both as my intention of sleep was impossible due to the din of I-10. Triple glazed windows and other materials might have made a difference but they weren't used in my room. You'll be better off to stop earlier or later and get a better situated hotel.
Spent one this past weekend. I had a room on the first floor. The king room was very spacious and the bed was super comfy. I was told that no one could see inside the room but I still would prefer to be able to close the curtains bc there was always light in the room. Not to mention i could see everybody walking by. There were plenty of plush pillows and there were a lot of movie channels to choose from. There was excellent water pressure and the water stayed very hot. There lemon hand lotion was the best. A minor complaint was that the toilet seat was off track bc every time we sat down it shifted and the vent did not work. Breakfast was your standard continental breakfast. If the hotel is crowded expect a long line for the waffles. The hotel is in a good location right off the highway and there is a McDonald and convenience store you can walk to if you're the walking type.
The front desk clerk was friendly and accommodating. The room was fairly comfortable. Was good to have a working ac. I had to go to another floor to find a working ice machine (not the first hotel this has occurred).
This hotel was fine overall, but there were a couple of issues for me. The room was musty, and just did not smell clean to me. Also, the elevator was almost nauseating with its overwhelming air freshener smell. I looked up and saw two Christmas tree air fresheners stuck above the elevator lights in the ceiling. I had to wonder what smell was worse than that: did someone throw up in there or something? Yikes. The room was comfortable, though, and we got a decent night's sleep there. The hotel is right off of the interstate, so noise could be a factor. For breakfast, we had make your own waffles, which were really good.
Full disclosure - I am a Marriott Premium member. First, I'd like to point out the excellent service that I received on this business trip from Jazz, Jacob and the General Manager, Arturo. Thank you all for a wonderful stay. Also, this is the first Fairfield Inn that I have ever visited that offered a "Happy Hour." (Tuesday/Wednesday nights, beer/wine, soft drinks and light snacks). Thanks! The room was clean and fresh upon arrival. The wall-mounted HVAC controls kept the room comfortable throughout the day, though I had some difficulty in getting the temperature "just right" for sleeping. The wall-mounted HVAC unit was efficient and quiet. Likewise the room was pretty quiet as well, even with the noise of I-10 nearby. Great hotel construction. Electricity near the bed was at a premium, so I employed my #1 Hotel Hack, a three-plug adapter. The internet was fast and stable. I was easily able to stream Amazon video and use Google Video Hangouts for business meetings. (Those using a VPN may experience degraded behavior with Amazon video though). It looks as though they are about to start a lobby remodeling project - call ahead if you think that might bother you. All in all - a great place, near my client (about 15 minutes). I will certainly add this hotel to my Marriott Favorites to come to again when visiting my Houston clients.
Quick visit to the area for a funeral. We have never stayed at this hotel chain . Several family & friends staying here so we joined them. Hotel was very clean and staff all friendly and accommodating. Lobby was nice as we all gathered after the day's events to spent a bit more time together. Would definitely return .
Had a minor issue with room at check in. Yesenia(?) happily moved us to another room without hesitation. She was very nice. Room was fabulous and very clean. Kudos to hsk. Bed was comfortable and I have a bad back so that was a relief. Breakfast was typical fare, area was clean, and stocked. I would stay again when in the area.
Stayed with my family at this hotel for a few nights. We had a great experience! The hotel was clean inside and out. The room was neat with everything we needed. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also great! I have no complaints about this hotel! Totally recommend this place!
The room was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Seems like even the staff is happy to work there. This Fairfield Inn is one of the best I have stayed in. Overall great experience staying here!
