“Nice Room, Soft Beds, Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2010

We had a great experience at this hotel. The room was very clean and the beds are great. (Soft with a lot of pillows). The staff was awesome! They where polite, helpful and informative. We will be back in Ann Arbor and we will go back to Fairfield Inn. Steve - Holland, MI.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2010

The rooms were clean, new, and well-equipped. The beds were quite soft, maybe too soft for some. Many pillows were supplied.

The breakfast was pretty good, including waffles, bacon/egg/cheese biscuits (pre-packaged), instant oatmeal, bagels, muffins, etc. No fresh fruit though. Coffee was only so-so.

The swimming pool and hot tub were great, and not very busy.

The wireless internet did not work anywhere on the property. The hotel seems to be in a dead spot for 3G cell data too, so it was impossible to get any reliable internet connection. This fact alone would cause me to choose another hotel.

One room was very noisy, being right next to a stairwell. Was kept awake until 2am by the stairwell door crashing. Very unpleasant. They should not rent that room at all, or fix the door.

Booked two neighboring rooms through central reservations, but when we arrived were told the rooms were on different floors, and since they were completely full they could do nothing about it. They were very friendly, but the best they could do was one double room for our family of 5 for the first night. For the next two nights they gave us adjacent rooms, but one was too noisy to sleep in!

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
