Fairfield Inn & Suites Merrillville

Reviewed 2 April 2012

I usually prefer Courtyards, but have been trying the Fairfield's lately when they seem newer in age than the CY's...this one was good enough. I think it is showing some signs of age, but it was relatively clean and a good value for the rate. As always with properties, they seem to neglect 'real sanitary' cleaning in areas like corners of bathrooms and behind beds/nightstands. Again, this location was good - not above par - but not bad, I would stay again if I had business in the area.

Frequent user of Fairfield Inns. Excellent value and excellent breakfast is what is expected and that is what you get. First floor hallway to room on the day we arrived was in need of vacuuming.
Front desk attendant Julie(?) very helpful but every time we went in or out she was on the phone.
The best thing about this site was that it across- 50 yards- from an excellent Mexican restaurant

Average "express" motel, nothing bad but nothing great. Nice clean place flat screen tv's, newer renovated rooms. Small lobby and breakfest area. I recieved discounted price with priceline, I would not pay the higher price with Marriott.

We had to attend a funeral in the area and needed two rooms. Because one of our family is handicapped, we needed a handicapped accessible room. The hotel clerk was very understanding and said there was a handicap accessible room right at the side door with a parking space so designated. It was a 15 foot walk from the car to the room! This hotel really understands the needs of individuals who are wheel chair or walking cane bound. Rooms were immaculate and the lobby was warm and friendly (loved the chocolate chip cookies!). The hotel clerk also recommended a restaurant that delivered to the hotel. In the morning, there was a special effort by the breakfast hostess to give me a tray to hand-deliver breakfast items to that room. We travel quite a lot and was impressed with this particular Marriott Fairfield Inn because they truly went the extra mile. Thanks for the great service and warm/friendly rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room. Easy to get to breakfast area, computers, pool, lobby desk, etc. Hotel...

I don't think you'll go wrong here. Woke up on Saturday morning wanting to get on the road early, but breakfast isn't put out until 7 a.m. on weekends. The gentleman at the front desk generously offered to go into the pantry and get me muffins and yogurt, which I greatly appreciated. Have to say that Fairfield has really good bakery style muffins at all the locations I've stayed at recently, and Activia yogurt -- my favorite. The room and bath were clean and nice, if small. It was on the interstate side of the building, but we didn't hear any traffic noise. The king size bed took up most of the room. There was a desk & office chair and comfy upholstered chair. No mini fridge or microwave or sofa, but I've never felt that those were worth paying extra for if you are only going to be there a night or two. Like another reviewer said, our room was small and the bath had a tiny triangular sink/vanity tucked in the corner. No complaints, just an observation. If you are staying for several days or sharing the room/bath with someone else, you might want to make sure you get a room with a bigger vanity area. We definitely got our money's worth and will stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: Very small vanity area in our bath, so check the room first if this is important to you.

Right price, decorated nicely, clean and comfortable. Had never tried the Fairfield brand of Marriott but assumed with the Marriott name it should be good. Did ask to see the room before checking in and was quite pleasantly surprised. Talked the desk clerk into upgrading me to their little suite for a bit more money and found a very well appointed room in a convenient location and a breakfast that was better than the rolls and coffee found in many value brand hotels. Good location just off of I-65 between Chicago and Indianapolis with restaurants near.

What a difference in hotels. Stayed at a Microtel in Janesville for two nights while at the Water Ski Show Nationals and to say the least I will never stay in a Microtel again. Then had the pleasure of staying at the Fairfield Inn in Merriville on the way home and found it to be just the opposite. GREAT SERVICE and CLEAN ROOMS. Staff Exceptional.
If in Merriville this is the hotel to stay.

Room Tip: If in Merriville this is the place to stay for a reasonable amount.
