Fairfield Inn Ann Arbor

Reviewed 16 May 2010

The hotel has a pool and a very small free breakfast. The best features was the cleanliness of roo. However, the beds in two different rooms were too soft and I could not sleep well. They also carry no PBS station on the cable.

I do a lot of traveline and have stayed in many hotels both within this chain and others. By far the staff at the Fairfield Ann Arbor are the friendliest I have ever seen. Hotel is clean, the pool is great and breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

The front desk was cordial, the hotel room was clean.

Beds were comfortable.

The walls are kind of thin, you can hear everything going on outside. We went on a non football game weekend, and still were a little disturbed by noise.

The bathroom in our room was clean, but very small. The sink was outside in the room, not separated by a wall or anything, which we found to be a bit uncomfortable.

Free wireless and free continental breakfast were good.

If you need a decent place to crash, for an affordable price, this place is fine. Nothing to write home about.

This hotel is on the outskirts of Ann Arbor; however, it is ideal for those who want to attend the Big House for home games on Saturdays. The hotel is located at the rear of a large complex of hotels which makes it hard to see from the street. The reception area is bright and the staff well mannered. The rooms are small but the beds are comfortable. I did not like having the sink outside of the bathroom though. There is enough space for two people - any more and it would feel cramped - and you better want to be a cuddler if you want to sleep two people to each bed :-) The free continental breakfast was adequate and quirky as one can make their own fresh waffles if one decides. I would have expected to pay less had I not know how close the hotel is to the University of Michigan.

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn Ann Arbor for one night driving through to Mackinac Island. We arrived around 8pm on a Friday night. Check in was smooth. They were scrubbing the lobby though and the floors were quite wet.
Our room was fine- the king bed was nice. The room was clean. Wireless internet worked well.
The free breakfast was nice- waffle maker, fruit, yogurt, breakfast sandwiches, etc.
Check out was smooth. This hotel is fine for a stopover; not much more though

Stayed here one night during a driving trip to the midwest. The hotel staff was friendly, the lobby area was clean and the rooms were solid Fairfield quality.

The breakfast was plentiful (and the waffle station proved quite popular). My only complaint was that the dairy products in the small fridge were not cold--only slightly cool. I stayed away--and that isn't the impression you want people to have about the food you offer them. Everything seemed well stocked, including the coffee!

The pool area seemed quite nice (and popular with the families), and the workout facilities were simple but solid.

The previous reviewers' comments about the hotel being hard to find are dead on. Even remembering that, and having a detailed set of directions, we still had to turn around twice. I highly recommend that the hotel put up some signage on the main road that can more easily direct folks to the hotel. The hotel certainly isn't going to get ANYONE there that doesn't already have a reservation--it is just too hard to find (and you drive by other chains on the way).

Reviewed 21 June 2008

Stayed here during the Nascar Race. Room was clean and modern. Had 2 comfortable double beds, with extra pillows already provided. Very close to shopping, restaurants and the highway. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Free buffet breakfast was very good and had a wide range of options. Pool and hot tub area were clean and bright. The only downside to this hotel is that it is a little hard to find as it is in the back of the Marriott complex. Also TV only had about 20 free channels, I guess I'm just used to the sattelite at home. If you wanted pay per view there were movies and tv on demand. All in all, I would have no problems recommending this hotel and would use it again in the future.
