This hotel is so humid. Your clothes feel damp when you put them on. The sheets feel damp as well. Mildew present on bathroom ceiling. After 3 nights, I couldn't wait to get out of there. Yes, the hotel itself is clean for it's age.

My husband I and I stayed one night. The check in was efficient and prompt, room very clean, beds comfy, and the breakfast was nice. I would stay here again. My only "complaint" could be that the breakfast was beginning to be removed about 15 minutes before posted time of its closure.

I needed an economical yet convenient hotel not too far from MSP for the night before and I found that at Fairfield Inn. I'm a frequent Marriott customer but had not stayed at a Fairfield Inn in quite awhile. I was overwhelmed with the friendliness and caring of the staff. Really nice people. I didn't take advantage of it, but the pool, hot tub, and exercise facilities looked excellent. Breakfast was heads above many similar hotels. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great hotel with hard working staff that are friendly and thorough. Arguably the cleanest hotel we have stayed in at ANY price point. The breakfast was out early and it was very good. Overall, a great experience.

Stayed here 2 weeks ago. Checkin was smooth. The front desk staff helped us with restaurant choices near by. But we ended up eating at the Mexican restaurant right next door - which was very good. The room was nice and clean. Noticed that the previous guests had left a 'baby swimwear' hanging on the bathroom door. Wish the housekeeping staff would have noticed it earlier. Mentioned this to the front desk staff while checkout. Pool was undergoing some repair but we were told that we could use the resources at the Y across the street but we didn't have time. Breakfast was decent. Overall a comfortable stay.

We stayed at this hotel last weekend while in town. At first glance from the outside it looks like a decent hotel but once inside you could tell that it is in need of a major remodel. We paid $129 a night and I would say this was more like a $75 a night hotel. The website says that there are mini fridges in the rooms, that is not the case, we did not have a fridge or microwave in our room nor did others that we were with. We had to keep all of our food cold in a small cooler so needless to say we ended up throwing some stuff out because we could not keep it cold. My guess is that some of the fridges have quit working and they never replaced them. The rooms really need new carpet and a facelift. The carpet is old green carpet that has bad patching spots. The sheets need replaced because they kept coming off the bed in the middle of the night. So either they are so old the elastic is worn out or they are not the right size. You really do not want to see what is under the sheets - trust me! We had multiple rooms and the mattress in one of the rooms had yellow stains on the end (room 107) it was disgusting. I would venture to guess these mattresses have not been switched out in MANY years. The plus things about the hotel is they offer free day passes to the YMCA next door since they do not have a fitness center - the YMCA was very nice. The staff at the hotel was very nice and did not mind groups of people joining together in the breakfast area late at night. If I was in the area again for an extended period of time and not traveling with a group, I would find another place to stay at $129 a night.

We stayed here for a girls weekend trip. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the temperature was able to be adjusted from the room. Breakfast was wonderful. There was fresh fruit and waffles. The waffles were the small round ones so you could adjust the portion instead of one big waffle! There was also cereal, yogurt and other healthy options. The hotel had plenty of free parking and there were restaurants and a Target close by. I would stay here again...

This place seems like it has been in need a renovation for about 10 years. The staff was excellent, but the amenities were poor and the hotel was very bland. The front doors were manual (terrible I even say this, but I'm so used to automated doors now), there was no guest laundry, the tvs seems to be first generation flat screens, the tiles in my bathroom need grouted, and the bathtub needed scrubbed, etc. Overall, I just expected more out of a Marriott property.

I have been having pretty good luck with Fairfield Inns lately, but this location can really use a facelift. Everything about it felt worn out - the exterior, room furniture, bedding, etc. all need an upgrade to match Marriott's brand standards. On a positive note, the staff does try to make a guest feel welcome with a snack bag and fresh popcorn each night. It is not enough to make me feel good about staying their again though.

Very basic hotel that served it's purpose for a couple nights while on business. Needs some updating but is clean. Everyone was friendly and all went well. Just needs to be modernized a little, rooms and lobby.
