We were here for 2 days on a family visit. Our room was spacious and spotless. The bathroom was well appointed. The AC worked and was not noisy. The bedding was the highlight of the room. Both my wife and I slept soundly and our floor was very quiet. The breakfast buffet was good but predictable. We would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Rooms were clean and quiet. After a 7 hour drive really enjoyed resting up here. Free breakfast was nice with a wide variety to pick from. Very pleasant staff! Will come again. Strongly recommend for families.

Very clean, newer property. Abundant , well lit parking. Friendly welcoming staff. Dining options just across the parking lot. Comfortable being. Very quiet and restful. Television has full cable/satellite channels.

Note: 4 stars is my top rating for a roadside hotel; 5 stars are reserved for resorts. After 13 hours on the road, we ran out of steam and pulled over for the night. In this situation, you hope for a quiet hotel with a comfortable bed and a decent shower. We got so much more here: -Firm bed with a soft top -Even temperature in the room -Simple thermostat and quiet fan -Tea for falling asleep and waking up -Mini fridge tucked into a quieting cabinet -Plenty of hot water and a high-pressure shower -Ample breakfast, with fresh fruit, oatmeal, and soymilk -Smiling, helpful staff Marriott, if you're listening, you might consider: -A smaller ironing board that doesn't take up half the closet -A fleece blanket option for the bed. It's too cool with just the sheet and too hot with the comforter

Stopped overnight during a 900 mile trip and had a great experience. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Front desk was friendly, helpful and quick. I liked how every light in the room had a very easy to find on/off switch. Bathroom was spacious, had plenty of hot water and shower head was nice and high! The only thing I would change would be adding an exhaust fan in the bathroom. (Though most hotels don't have them.) Room had a king size bed, mini-fridge, microwave and plenty of room for storage/luggage. Breakfast was decent with a variety of eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits & gravy, fresh fruit, pastries, juices and cereal. And if you are driving your Tesla, they have plenty of charging stations for you. I'd definitely stay here again.

The beds are very comfortable with quality linens; room amenities are quite nice (coffeemaker, tea, mini fridge). The shower and bathroom are spacious. The property is pretty new and the staff are very courteous. We will stay here again.

We first stayed in this Fairfield Inn in Fall 2015, and it has become a "go to" overnight stop on travel to the Gulf Coast (see previous review). Two recent stays (one on the way down, the other on the way back) have simply confirmed eaarlier experiences with this hotel. For starters, it's very conveniently located, just a couple of minutes from I-65. There are a number of fast and casual food options within close proximity. Logan's Roadhouse and Ruby Tuesday restaurants border the same parking lot, just a short walk away. There are fast food options nearby as well, e.g. Chick-fil-A (as long as it's not Sunday). The hotel itself continues to maintain high marks for cleanliness and service, and the rooms are quite comfortable. Morning breakfast is what you'd expect from a Fairfield Inn...no surprises. The hotel has a small indoor pool, and behind it is a lovely outdoor patio which overlooks a wooded area. It's a great place to relax with a beverage after a long day's drive. Like I said, it's a "go to" if you need a good night's rest near I-65.

First time at this hotel, stopped on our way through to the Gulf Shores. We were impressed by the size of the room, everything seemed newly decorated or at least looked like it was & our room was very clean. I loved the huge walk-in shower, breakfast had lots of choices & friendly staff checking in.

This Fairfield Inn is just a few years old and very much up to date with all the amenities. This is our second year we have stopped here. Good breakfast with modern up to date room. We will return next year.

I just recently reserved a block of rooms for a business group coming into the Athens, Alabama area. I can easily say it has been the best hotel experience ever. To say I got 'above and beyond' service would be an understatement. From the moment I first called, the team at Fairfield was understanding of my requests and willing to work with me however they could to make sure our guests felt accommodated and welcomed. Jody and Miguel at the hotel front desk greeted me each time I called or walked in and were more than ready to assist with whatever I needed. The hotel was extremely clean each time I went in and had such a warm, welcoming feel. I never worried about the experience the guests would be getting from the hotel staff. I will be returning to this hotel in the future for business needs and also recommending it to friends traveling to the area. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for somewhere to stay in or around the Athens area!
