“Stay here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

Avoid the holiday inn depressed and stay here! Close to the mall and restaurants. Parking can be a challenge but worth it. Next to Starbucks! They don't have to apologize on trip advisor. Customer service is great!

i stayed at this hotel again in november (my relatives live in el centro, hence my reason for visiting). anyway, as a top rated hotel and after having a good experience last time i had high expectations. however, the first night we were placed on the second floor next to the elevator and a baby crying all night long. but really, the absolute worst thing was bugs. bugs! they were grasshoppers or crickets, i'm not really sure. anyway, we saw the first one on the bathroom floor (alive) when we checked in. my boyfriend took it out for me, so i didn't complain, figuring it was a one-off. however, when we got back from dinner (at burgers and beer), there was another grasshopper, this time on the wall next to the front door. gross, and not what i paid 90 bucks a night for. i was disappointed to say the least. here's the kicker. after a night of little sleep and bugs, i went to the front desk to voice my concerns. i'm a reasonable human being and i know things like this happen. there was a woman at the front desk and a man (his name was armando, i didn't ask for the woman's name, she didn't have a name tag). anyway, they shrugged it off like it was no big deal, saying they'd "let management know". i also mentioned the baby crying all night and there wasn't an ounce of sympathy, no "i'm sorry to hear that" or anything. this was such a shock because my last time here i had such a great customer service and bug free experience. i honestly don't know what happened. and the woman at the front desk needs to seriously learn some customer service skills. when we were walking out she didn't even look up to say goodbye. jeez. get it together, fairfield inn! i travel to el centro a lot and i'd like to patronize your business again, but i might have to try other options next time.

This is a very nice Fairfield Inn. El Centro is in the middle of no where. Coming out of the Mountains from CA, you'll hit a stretch of flat desert road and in the middle of this lower CA stretch of highway is a green spot; El Centro. There's lots of restaurants nearby, in fact that share the same parking lot. Johnny Carinos, Dave Famous BBQ. The staff is local and extremely friendly. I showed up late and wet from a motorcycle ride coming from San Diego and heading to Yuma. They let me park my bike right next to the door and gave me a "discount" on my room because i looked "weary." lol. They made me feel very welcome and also like a friend though they never met me before. I believe the gal that checked me in was a graduate from the local high school and filled me in on all the things to do in El Centro - which isn't a whole lot, but still.

Rooms were clean. Breakfast in the morning was good. Very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay there again.

Travel down here a lot. This place is in a great spot. Lots of restraunts right next door. If you stay in the summer though try and get room on east side of hotel. Takes a while for a/c to cool down room. Good bed and everything else great.

Pleasant surprise, far nicer than other Fairfield inns we have stayed in, decor much more upmarket. Reasonably priced hotel conveniently located near highway and walking distance to a large choice of restaurant and shops. Rooms was spacious (just missed not having a fridge). Staff friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was fine, just what you would expect from this type of hotel, perfectly adequate. Right next door to Starbucks too if you preferred a tastier cup of coffee. Indoor pool and spa a bit bleak decor. Can also use outdoor pool in nearby marriott, which was great. Would recommend this hotel.

Nice rooms and a good Location. Small breakfast included. There are some Restaurants in the area and a Shopping Center. A good Hotel to stay on the way to Arizona or to California. Free Wifi in rooms and Lobby and 2 PC's in the Lobby area. Could not find a better place in the area ..
Will be staying again at this Fairfield Inn.

Had a very good two-night stay here. Located between two shopping centers, with plenty of eating options, and five minutes from downtown if you're looking for non-chain options. Room was a good size and the bathroom was particularly nice. Breakfast was simple, though satisfying--coffee and tea, danish, cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, and a waffle maker. Staff was friendly and helpful.
