“Very nice place - Much more than might be expected.”
Reviewed 1 December 2009

I stayed at Farifield Inn on route to a trip to Tunica MS. As other reviews have stated, the hotel seems quite new (the staff indicated that it had been open about 2.5 years). The check-in staff folks were very pleasant, and provided a top-floor room, as had been requested. The entire hotel is non-smoking, and there were no lingering odors noticed anywhere on the premises.

The room contained the usual hotel furniture with a mid-size tube-type television, with a reasonably large selection of channels. Bed was nothing out of the ordinary, but was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and adequately-sized, with a normally-sized tub and shower.

The continental breakfast that is provided is a bit above the normal continental breakfast that is typically seen at other hotels. It offered do-it-yourself waffles, and a selection of other breads. There was also oatmeal and cereal, fruits and hard-bolied eggs, yogurt, coffee and juice, plus a few other things that I might not have seen, The staff seemed to be paying attention to items that need replenishment, and everything I tried was good.

In summary, Fairfield Inn Bessemer was clean, quiet and comfortable. I would have no hesitation is staying there again.

I stayed at this inn for 3 days while visiting my daughter & thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The large room was tastefully decorated & sparklingly cleaned each day when I returned. The breakfast provided each morning was plentiful, the staff friendly & helpful. While the indoor pool was small, it was always available, with plenty of towels. A jacuzzi is nearby with attached porch for sunning. The excercise room next door to pool room was equipped with five or six machines & wide screen televison

My family and I used reward points for an overnight stay at this Fairfield Inn. This property still looks new and is immaculately kept. The lobby, though small, is airy and welcoming. The front desk staff served us quickly and were very knowledgeable about the area. Again, the linen, upholstery, and bathroom were immaculate! There are several other hotels within walking distance, but they didn't seem like they were as well-maintained as this Fairfield. Typical fare for the free breakfast: sausage patties, biscuits, cereal, bagels, etc. There is easy access to I-59/20 and the next interchange to the west is I-459. Bessemer is well to the west of Metro Birmingham, but a great location for those passing through.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend, while we were in town for a Tide game. It was a great location, near plenty of restaurants, stores, gas stations, and right off the highway. It was about 30 mins from the airport, and 30 mins from Tuscaloosa, which was perfect. The rooms were a nice size, clean, and just right for a weekend stay. One thing I did not care for was the climate control. There was no continuouse fan function, and the room got a little stuffy without lowering the temperature settings to get the AC to come on. Other than that, there was a basic free breakfast provided, as well as free wireless internet access. Overal, the staff was friendly, and the hotel was clean and comfortable. I will stay here again when we are in town for another game.

We switched to this hotel after our disappointment with another, nearby hotel. This was a very good move. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and in excellent condition.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful. We had a nice, comfortable room with a hot tub. The bed was very comfortable, and the room layout made excellent use of space and function.

The indoor pool was very nice (a great wintertime attraction), as was the adjacent whirlpool.

The breakfast selection was about average for a hotel of this stature, but the quality was very good. For lunch and dinner, there are many nearby restaurants, several of which are within short walking distance.

Recently stayed one night at the new Fairfield Inn in Bessemer
on our way through Birmingham to Mobile and wished we could have stayed longer. Very nice front desk staff and bright lobby. Marble floors were immaculate as was the elevator and hallways. Room was bright, new of course, immaculate and very roomy. Just like the internet photos. Great beds with good feather ( yea!) pillows! Breakfast had a good variety of items.
This new Fairfield was a lot more upscale feeling than a typical Fairfield. We did not use the pool or workout room, but we peeked in and both looked great.
We stay in hotels approx. 7-10 nights a month and are Marriott Platinum members and are very picky about cleanliness, design and decor and this hotel was an A+ in all areas.

  • Liked — New & Sqeaky Clean!
