“Great Overnight Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We flew into Austin as our jumping-off spot to visit San Antonio, and then on to Waco and Baylor University. This Fairfield Inn was in the perfect location -- close enough to the airport that we didn't have to drive for hours to get settled for the night; but far enough away that we didn't have jets flying overhead to disturb our sleep. The staff is FABULOUS! So helpful and friendly. Attention to detail in the rooms is amazing. Everything spotlessly clean. The hot breakfast in the morning is another plus; however, seating is quite limited. We liked this hotel so much that we made a return trip on our way back from Waco.

Room Tip: Even if you are at the front of the hotel, the roadway noise is pretty muffled.

From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and felt very "at home" by the staff! The rooms were average. I wished there would've been more mirrors and lighting, but overall on average hotel room. The kids used the heated pool and enjoyed it. The customer service was excellent and everyone I encountered were more than happy to help! :) That makes a BIG difference!!

Room Tip: Get rooms away from highway.

I've been really liking the Fairfields lately - they seem to be newer builds for the most part & more hospitable than Courtyards. This location is definitely a good one - the staff was warm & welcoming and the facility seems to be nicely kept up.

My room was clean & comfortable - got upgraded to a suite which is always nice (Marriott Gold - holla!). Wifi is free, though I couldn't get it to work for me while I was there. It was just one night anyway so it wasn't a huge deal. I can tell you that the air-con works like a champ & is relatively quiet.

If you care, they have an indoor pool & workout room as well as free parking. Location wise, it's relatively close to both the airport (4-5 miles) and the city (2-3 miles).

I travel most weeks and stay in Marriott's most of the time - this is definitely an above average property. Would happily stay here again.

Thank you for your review! Along with our indoor pool our guests also have access to the outdoor pool at the Marriott Residence Inn next door and the hot tub and fitness center at the Marriott Courtyard. Both are just a few feet away.

Who ever is doing the staffing and training, knows what they are doing. The staff were all up beat, the beds were great. I am a fan of Fairfield Inns, but this one was better than others because of the people involved. Give up the good work. the breakfast is what it is in chain hotels, so make the best of it, eat what you can and forget the rest. They had flowers waiting for my wife for Mother's Day, points scored!!!!

The staff in this hotel were just great. We arrived early and had booked four rooms. They gave us one early so we could put all our luggage together. They booked us the shuttle to downtown Austin and off we went. The rooms were very nice and the beds comfy. Everything was very clean. We came back to the hotel at 10:30 pm and they helped us order pizza and we stayed right in the lobby area. The next morning they had a free buffet breakfast. They had an assortment of breakfast pastries, breads, eggs, pancakes, oatmeal, cereals and yogurts. It was a great start to the day. They gave us lots of directions and another shuttle into downtown Austin. Loved it here.

My wife and I stayed here for one night, using it as a springboard to check out some great BBQ joints in Austin. The location is right next to I-35, which was very convenient to drive into the city. Staff was very friendly, plenty of parking, bed was extremely comfortable. My only disappointment was that we didn't see a refrigerator -- not even a mini-fridge -- anywhere in the room. Otherwise, it was a great stay and I'd highly recommend.

The common theme of the reviews for this hotel in Trip Advisor is "friendly staff". They did not disappoint. We felt right at home with staff who were always smiling and anticipating our needs, a special shout out to Maria and Jeremy. Breakfast offered a great variety including scrambled eggs and sausage, fresh fruit, waffles, danish, yogurt, cereal etc. More importantly, all these were replenished in a timely basis especially the coffee.

Rooms were very clean.

If you want a sparkly, marbled floor hotel lobby and a front desk that simply checks you in, this isn't the place for you. If you want to feel at home, stay here.
