I decided to stay at this Fairfield/Marriott hotel because of the Marriott name and my past experiences with Marriott. I collect Marriott points and usually try to stay at Marriott hotels. Well, this particular trip I was traveling by myself and looked online and found this Marriott and booked a room. My family had stayed there many years ago and I remembered it as being nice. As I pulled up to the front it looked like no one had touched the outside of the building for ages. It was actually somewhat seedy looking. As soon as I walked into the front lobby I realized I made a mistake!! This was not a typical Marriott or even a Fairfield hotel. The employees seemed very nice, but the security and the overall appearance made me very uncomfortable! It was definitely a hotel where drivers stopped over for the night. I was packed for a long weekend with lots of stuff in my car and I was very worried about how secure it would be. Had I not arrived late at night I would have left and booked a room in another hotel. I was so disappointed in this hotel. I am very surprised that Marriott puts their name on this hotel. I was wondering if once in a while someone from the main headquarters comes out to check on their hotels. There is no way this would be considered your typical Marriott experience. I would not recommend this hotel.

Friendly staff. Tired, but clean, hotel. Decent breakfast included. Moderately priced and a good value. Overall, I needed a room en route to my final destination, and this filled the bill. I probably would stay again if alone, but it wouldn't pass muster with my wife.

I decide to stay at this Fairfield/Marriott hotel because of the Marriott name and our past experiences with Marriott. My husband and I collect Marriott points and we usually LOVE Marriott hotels. Well, this particular trip I was traveling by myself and looked online and found this Marriott and booked a room (pictures showed a very nice room). As soon as I walked into the front lobby I realized I made a mistake!! This is NOT your typical Marriott or Fairfield hotel. The people (employees) seemed very nice, but the security, the overall appearance, the other hotel guests all made me very uncomfortable! It was definitely a hotel where drivers stopped over for the night. If I had time to leave and book another room in another hotel I would have. I left for a funeral and when I came back around 9:00 pm I was so thankful to have found a parking spot close to the front door (I made up my mind that I would have called the front desk and asked someone to step outside while I was walking in if there was not a convenient spot). Once I was in my room I felt fine because I was locked in :) . However, all night long there was noise, people running around and lots of noise. I looked through the peephole and didn't see anything and there was no way I was going to open my door. I thought about calling down to the front desk but was afraid of making trouble and having someone at my door asking questions. I was so disappointed in this hotel, I'm REALLY surprised that Marriott puts their name on this hotel. I was wondering if once in a while someone from the main headquarters comes out the scan the hotels. There is no way this would be considered your typical Marriott experience. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone!!

We chose this hotel because it was 2 hrs drive to New Jersey cruise port and there is a lot of places to eat here. The staff was very friendly and helpful and place was clean and nice. I would recommend this place. Morning breakfast was nice and hotel is close to highway access

My wife and I stay here on our return trip home after a week in Lancaster PA. I wanted to visit Steamtown National Park. The hotel is in a good location, next to several restaurant and was very clean. Very helpful staff with a good breakfast.

I'm a Gold Marriott member. Stay in all types of Marriott properties. This Fairfield is totally fine, not the newest property but not bad at all. Clean, well maintained every time I've stayed there. The staff is very professional too. The location is good as there are a number of restaurants and a mall nearby. Whatever issues they have had with Housekeeping and cleaning the rooms I've never experienced. I've stayed here several times over the last few years.

The people were very helpful, clean and neat. Tiffany, checked us in and did a marvelous job. The facility was very clean and orderly. Our room was well kept. Good Experience. The breakfast was more than satisfactory

We were visiting our son at college and thought a Mariott property would be good--Wrong! Worst place I've ever stayed. Our room smelled and housekeeping never tended our room over our 2 night stay. We will never stay here again.

Don't stay here. The property is worn and dirty. I felt as if I was staying in a Motel 6, not a Marriott property. The furniture looked as if it was from the '80s and there was so much dust on the lamp and dresser I was afraid to touch anything. The bathroom had hair on the floor and was also old and dated.
