“Overall better than expected; great location”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This stay was our first at a Fairfield property. What stood out with this hotel was the friendly & helpful staff and its ideal location for Universal Studios. We appreciate the convenience of hot breakfast & free shuttle to Univ Studios. I-ride trolley stops are only a short walk, there are dining spots nearby as well as a Walgreens store which we found helpful; these we didnt know at booking. Overall, my family enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

Stayed here as a bridge night between Disney and Universal. My mom is a platinum level member so I had to stay at a Marriot property. Stayed in a king suite with my daughter. Thought the bed was super comfy and we had plenty of space. The front desk staff were super helpful and friendly. Burger King across the parking lot and I think there was a Benihana or some kind of Japanese restaurant within walking distance. We didn't explore further and the roads were really busy. I wouldn't have wanted to try to cross the roads!

The hotel was modern and kept very clean. This is Marriott's budget line, but I have to say their service from check-in, to breakfast, to check out was excellent compared to some higher end hotels that I have stayed at and service is very important to me. The hotel was packed for the holidays yet their breakfast area was constantly attended to and kept replenished and clean. Our room was cozy and the location is close to Universal (not recommended for walking to). The noise of the A/C would keep me from staying longer, but for a weekend getaway with the family, it was perfect!

Room Tip: Our room was towards the front on second floor, not too noisy.

Stayed two nights at this hotel a couple weeks ago, saw that it was highly rated on this website and decided to give it a try. The hotel was built in 2001, though it seemed that the hotel facilities and room were clean for the most part, it did appear that everything was starting to show their age. This was a very typical Fairfield inn, from the rooms to the continental breakfast were all what you would expect from the chain. I really appreciated the helpful staff and the coffee in the lobby. The only thing I had a problem with was the bed sheet. I usually inspect my bed sheets and covers whenever I stay at a hotel. When I checked the bed sheets before getting in bed that evening, I was surprised to find more than half a dozen hairs on the sheets and pillows. Indeed it has been quite some time since I have discovered so many hairs on the sheets of a hotel bed from the Marriott chain. I just couldn't help but wonder if the sheets had been changed before my arrival. Luckily, I did not discover any stains on the sheets, so I just pulled the hairs off the sheets and went to sleep. I do hope management can be more mindful of this issue in the future.

Thank you for your review. I am happy your stay with us was enjoyable and consistent with the Fairfield Brand. However, I was disappointed to hear that you found hairs on your sheets- this is not what we want any of our guests to encounter. I have addressed your comments with both our Executive Housekeeping and housekeeping staff to ensure this does not happen in the future. Thank you again for your comments, and have a great day!

My family recently stayed at this hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was the perfect location for a visit to Universal Studios. The hotel offered free parking. There was a free shuttle to the theme park at 7:15 am, and it returned to the hotel at 7:45 pm. The complimentary breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, and much more. There were several restaurants right across the street for lunch or dinner. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Very friendly staff. Always in a good mood, especially Miguel. Good breakfast. Clean rooms. Good eating facilities nearby.
The fitness room is small and the threadmill was broke for more the one week.
