Let me explain, I have been to many Marriott Properties and in fairness to this location I will point out the Pros and Cons as I am undecided to this location, and can not honestly say if I would return.
PRO: Location, this is right in the middle of the action, and within walking distance to several restaurants, fast food places (one right in front of the hotel) and shopping (let then a mile away, not to mention you are also close to the wineries and old Temecula.
PRO: Staff-This probably has one of the better staff people, they are excited to see you and make sure you are having a good time and seemed concerned when you point out something that isn't right. One of the Superstars that bears noting is Cornelia who deserves special notice for making you feel special and welcome.
PRO: Plenty of free parking no mater what time you show up, in a well light parking lot.
PRO: Room is clean and has almost everything you would expect in a Fairfield Inn, most importantly a comfortable bed.
Now on to the objectionable items (depending on your point of view or tolerance level)
CON: Location, where this is a pro this is also a con, because you are located (as are most hotels in Temecula) right up against the very busy 15 freeway and a very busy intersection (one of the busiest in Temecula) I dont care where your room is; you WILL HEAR NOISE now depending on the location of said room that is the degree or volume of noise you will hear. I was located on the 3rd floor in a corner and with the exception of the road noise (which didn't bother me because I am used to it) it was a quite location.
CON: Internet Speed, This was so slow that it almost took me back to the old 2400 baud rate modem days (Old computer user reference) I tried this connection at various times of the day and night and no mater what time it was, it was so SLOW.
CON: Room, this has to have been one of the smallest rooms in the Fairfield system, now to be fair to the location, it was designed to flow pretty well, and you didn't feel so cramped you couldn't move but on the other hand it was defiantly compact in there. If you had large luggage I don't know what you would do with it.
CON: Breakfast, this amenity needs some help, and it would be an easy fix. Put some more healthy choices out, mix it up a bit with the hot food items (maybe go wild and try bacon every once in a while) there was no granola and the oatmeal was from packets (you know how cheap rolled oats and water are??) This was one of those items that wasn't horrible but it does need improvement.
CON: Noise factor, like the location this is a problem, once again depending on where you land in the hotel, can either be decent or a nightmare. With doors slamming shut (they need to put limiters on the doors to prevent this as this slows the door down when being closed) and kids running in the rooms or down the halls (we experienced a little bit of this but due to our location were spared 99% of that noise) I don't know how you would stop the kids part other then complain to the front desk.
All in all this wasn't a bad time but I don't know if I would be running back to this location. I usually have a definite opinion of most places but was so much on the fence that I thought I would share with you my thought process and let you make the determination. Temecula is a nice area but when it comes down to inexpensive choices for the weekend, you are limited in your choices. Special Note: Depending on the time of year and day of your visit this area can get really busy to a point of grid lock at the intersections and wall to wall people everywhere you go. Weekends are the worst and closer to major Holidays are not much better.
