We decided to stay at the Fairfield Inn based on previous stays at this chain. What a mistake!
To start at the beginning:
1. We tried to check in at 3:15, but were told our room was not ready despite the posted check-in time of 3:00. We left and came back at 3:50. STILL not ready. We waited a few minutes and finally were checked in. I will say that the front desk lady was nice about it, if nothing else.
2. So, we get on the elevator. It's dirty. The elevator was also making some incredibly uncomfortable clunking noises as if we would soon be plummeting three stories down whether we liked it or not.
3. Off the elevator. The hallways are dirty. Do they sweep this place?
4. The room is, thankfully, clean. Not very big, but the flatscreen TV was nice. However, the remote didn't work very well!
5. The bathroom looked as if it was in serious need of an update. The water also wasn't very hot.
A couple of positives:
1. I was absolutely shocked when I turned on the laptop and the wi-fi was immediately recognized and working. Shocked and amazed.
2. The bed was pretty nice. The kind that you sort of sink into. I would not have been surprised at creaky springs and a .25 cent slot for the old vibrating bed trick, but it wasn't a bad bed.
We paid $99 for the room. Honestly, that's about $79 too much. I've never stayed in one of the truly "budget" motels, but this one could not possibly be much better than those.
