Recent guest reviews

Night we checked in manager on duty did an amazing job getting us a park near fly spot. Daytime co-worker was rude telling me what to do the next time and it would be cheaper to go through them then a third party, it was already taken care of and discussed with me the night before no need to be rude. I earned a free night so this was cheaper than going through them.

Our check in was with a grumpy member of the staff. All other employees met on this stay were very friendly and helpful. It was just a bad first impression. They have construction going on that was dirty and noisy. The rooms were very small.

This hotel is conveniently located, easy on/ easy off the freeway. The remodeling underway during our stay did not lower my rating either. The room was clean and quiet even though it was a weekend and full, the hot breakfast stayed hot and replenished during the breakfast hours and the staff was most attentive to any need. The beds, including the pillows and bedding were comfortable and relaxing. Best of all, my husband had no complaints!

The hotel is set up in a business area but that actually worked out well as it wasn't busy with tourists. The staff was the best ever, so friendly and helpful......Highly recommended!

Very nice and comfortable! Extremely helpful staff (requested an additional blanket and when I realized I had forgotten my hairspray). Absolutely no complaints! Would not hesitate to stay at another Fairfield Inn & Suites in the future if they are all this good :)

Fabulous setting of fall color. Staff was very helpful. Pool and hot tub were very clean, no soap scum in hot tub. Little market very convenient for snacks and drinks. Good quality towels and ample amount. I loved staying here. Breakfast and coffee was excellent.

Very clean and comfortable room. The bed and pillows were so comfortable.

First of all, the staff was efficient and friendly. The heavy woman young woman, at the front desk, was so kind and helpful. The women taking care of breakfast were constantly refilling the food, freshening the food and, also, welcoming guests as we came to eat. Our rooms were clean and cozy. The bedding...well, it was just awesome. I enjoyed the pool one morning. Temp was good and towels were clean and at the ready just for me! Haha. Needless to say it we felt "lucky" to come "home" at the conclusion of of each of our long days. Thank you

The location was great, and the staff super-friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and the support staff there were constantly keeping food replenished. Also they asked if we needed anything. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. We would book here again. With the flight/hotel package it was very affordable.

Had a great time, particularly the shuttle service to the mall of america. The drivers were outstanding. Thanks for a great stay! Will remember this hotel for future stays.

The staff was excellent. Very helpful with Restrauant suggestions. Everyone was very friendly. Breakfast was great as well

Great place to stay- rooms were nice. Friendly staff.

Nice and convenient to the airport and the MOA. The room was clean and quiet.

Very clean and quiet. We'd arrived earlier and staff made a great effort to get us in a room before check in. Second time I've stayed here while in the St Paul-Minneapolis area and I will definitely stay again.

Nice staff, clean room, the hotel of same chain has the better food across the street. Decent value.

3 families from the wedding party stayed for 3 nights at this hotel....our general consensus is as follows: Pros: the staff, the building, the look and feel of the rooms, the pool, the breakfast, cleanliness - all great! CONS: NOISY!!!! The doors to the rooms are definitely NOT sound-proof, NOR are the ceilings -- the water pipes had air in them and squeeled (thought it was an alarm) when the people upstairs showered at 4AM. The rooms with a "living area" had a tad more soundproofing from the hallways. A girls Hockey team ran through the hallways until 1:30AM - knocked on the door like the building was on fire.... On Saturday night -- my daughter had lost her key and both she and her husband waited at the lobby window for about 20 minutes at 1AM - saw no staff and finally came to our room to get a key to let their family into the room.... It would be nice if the staff walked through the building to check on the floors for rabble-rousers -- and/or man the desk.......

We had a reservation for four nights, but due to severe weather & flight cancellations on the East Coast couldn't get there on the first day. I called company which did the booking and they contacted the Inn who gave us credit for the first night. Very nice gesture. Breakfast was top notch. Especially liked the fresh fruit medley, which included cantaloupe, oranges, pineapple, honeydew melon & grapes. Nice pool & hot tub too. Got free newspapers even on the weekend.

Very friendly staff! Close to everything. The perfect getaway for someone to check out mall of America.

We generally stay at the Fairfield and normally have a terrific stay but this time there was a little glitch. There was a hockey combine and the adults of at least one group did a very poor job maintaining order of their charges who ran down the hallway,knocked on doors looking for other participants until after midnight and the hotel staff really did nothing to address it. Additionally, the staff said breakfast would be served at 5:00 AM and at 6:15 still was not ready (Memorial Day). The other evenings were great, the breakfast more than sufficient and a good selection. Price was right too!

If you are not worried about items being stolen from the maid, stay at this hotel; otherwise go elsewhere. I had a bottle of perfum stolen on the last night of our trip. I contacted the supervisor, who said I would be contacted in a day or two. Three days later I called hotel spoke to a manager who said things were still being investigated (doubt it), and she would call me back..two weeks later still no call back, so obviously they don't care about the customer.
