This was a very clean and nice hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Emily was amazing!! Our room was better than expected and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely come back next time we are in town.

Seriously. Everything here was perfect. Super clean. And one of the nicest Fairfield Inns I’ve ever stayed in. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and modern. Price was good. And yet, I had a terrible nights sleep. It wasn’t noisy. My bed was comfortable and I had 6 pillows to choose from. All. The. Same. Yes 6 identical pillows 😀 some people like them thick. Some like them thin. I like them thin. They were all thick. All 6! I’m amazed how many times I see this in hotels. Mix it up people. I’m leaving this morning with a stiff neck feeling unrested. One thin pillow would have taken this from a 4 star to a 5 star. You should stay here. You may or may not need to bring your own pillow.

As a business traveler for the last 30+ years, this Fairfield has one of the best bedroom layouts to provide great working conditions. In general, the room I stayed in had a nice "open" desk area next to the TV, to place my suitcase up high. I appreciate not having to pull out of the closet a "luggage rack" or the "ironing board", to place my suitcase on and not have to bend over to the floor to get something out of it. Love the workspace and specifically the desk on wheels, where I can easily pull it out to face the TV while I do my work, rather than fight a solid heavy desk that I have to maneuver round all the cords, just so I don't face a wall. Staff here are super friendly and the breakfast was warm where it needed to be and cold where it should be. From a Platinum Premier Elite member who has stayed at many-many Marriott's...this is an excellent place to stay!

The staff was very nice and the rooms were very well done. The hot breakfast was pretty good too. The room decor was very modern and looked great. I was really impressed with the TV because it was setup with Netflix, Hulu, etc all you had to do was enter your account info to start watching. Then there was a simple button to clear out all of your info that you entered.

This place was wonderful! Clean, modern and the staff was really nice. Emily the front desk was wonderful and caring. She treated me the way a platinum member should. I was there for a week and I was extremely happy with my stay. Keep up the good work!!!

Their team went above and beyond to help me get a car, get water, use a conference room, bring shaving cream to my room. Tremendous service and great staff! Next time I'm in Waterloo I'll be looking to stay at Marriott! Thanks, Mark

Used this hotel as central spot for family wedding. Location is close to expansive Crossroads Mall shopping area and surrounding restaurants/shops. Convenient access to highway. Staff was very helpful with frequently changing room arrangements and requirements. The breakfast area was a good meeting place to start the day with the usual complementary breakfast. Also good place for meeting and talking other times. Access was good and mobility accessible room was fine. Rooms were clean and well-maintained. Did have electric charging parking spots. Exercise room equipment was well-maintained and clean. Beds and climate control were comfortable. Wi-fi was slightly difficult to connect to but otherwise worked okay. Get what you expect from a Fairfield Inn.

I stayed for a week. The room was comfortable, with a small refrigerator and a microwave. The housekeeping staff kept the room very clean. The breakfast buffet was minimal but very good. The staff were all amazing. I was very, very happy with my stay. It's also in a very good location. The casino is only 5 minutes away in one direction. You could walk to the mall and there are many other stores and restaurants in the area.

I stayed one night at this hotel. It was as I expect for Fairfield Inns. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean and the furniture was nice and in good repair. I didn't eat the breakfast but it looked good. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I would stay here again. I didn't give it a 5 because it is slightly more expensive than other comparable hotels in the area.

I recently stayed at this property and I cannot give enough credit to the staff. The property itself is nice, as are the rooms and laundry facilities. Specifically tho, Emily and really the whole gang did everything they could to make my stay comfortable. I once asked for a can opener and Emily ran one all the way up to the 4th floor. She ran! It just seemed like their answer was never going to be "No I'm sorry, we don't...". They always found a way to be accommodating, kind, friendly and polite. I stayed there on business but I would certainly spend my own hard earned money to stay there again if I was in the area. Worth it for sure :)
