“Dated But Comfortable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Recently stayed here for the second time. Also stayed here two years ago. Nothing has changed. Although this place needs an overhaul it is still comfortable. Stayed in the suite that looked like a 1980's flashback. Furniture pretty worn but bed was very comfy. Free breakfast was nice but had a small eating area. If you want a waffle you might have to wait in line. Staff is very pleasant. Adequate pool and hot tub. Close proximity to the University and US 30. If you don't mind a little grundge it is a good value. Got a great rate on internet.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the suite, much nicer than the rooms and not much more money.

PROS: Exceptionally nice desk clerks. The furnishings are fine and the king bed was very comfortable. The TVs are new and the WIFI worked. Plenty of counter space in the bathroom and hangers in the closet. Breakfast included yogurt; bananas were fresh; muffins looked good but I didn't taste them. Pantene shampoo & conditioner.

CONS: One of the 2 keycards worked twice. I don't know if it was a problem with the door lock or the card system. When I turned on the water for my shower, brown liquid came out of the faucet for the first few seconds. It cleared up but took quite a long time to warm up. There is no obvious tub/shower control; you have to pull down the tub faucet aerator to divert water to the showerhead. Towels are on the thin side and toilet is efficient but exceptionally noisy. We were on the 2nd of 3 floors and heard every step of the lead-footed person above us but not a sound from the rooms on either side of ours. No body lotion.
MISCELLANEOUS: one ice machine on the 1st floor.

The hotel is a little tired, but the excellent service makes up for it. We reported that the carpet in our room needed vacuuming (food and a toenail) and when we returned later the difference stopped both my son and I in our tracks. It looked new (and the room smelled fresher too.) The next day the woman at the desk followed up on making sure the issue was resolved. Beds are very comfortable. Towels were thin and the bathroom was divided with a separate sink area which is convenient when travelling with others but the vanity was so tiny there was no storage area for toiletries. Fridge and microwave are also convenient. WiFi adequate and free. Breakfast had a variety of choices, but everything was pre-packaged. Near many restaurants, a number within walking distance.

Recently stayed at the Fairfield Inn Valparaiso...it was older and not as clean as some of the other Fairfield Inns I have stayed. The desk staff was very nice and friendly. The breakfast room was extremely small and didn't hold many people. Overall, it wasn't terrible but I have definitely seen better. The beds were updated and comfortable!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

We recently had a road trip to the Indiana Dunes State Park and National Lakeshore Park. We chose to stay about 10 miles from the beach in Valparaiso, IN. When we checked in the Fairfield Inn, the first room was on the first floor and nice, but smelled of smoke - even though this was advertised as a "smoke-free hotel." We went back to the desk and the staff were VERY nice. After apologizing, they offered us another room on the second floor. The smoke smell was much lighter, but still there. We stayed that night and were going to find somewhere else to stay the next night, but when we told them why we were checking out, they offered us a third room. This time, it was one of their suites and had no hint of smoke smell. The room was VERY nice and we enjoyed that night. Other things: the hot tub was closed when we were there; the breakfast was standard, nothing to impress; and the popcorn in the lobby was the biggest hit.

The Fairfield inn is very clean and comfortable hotel. It is nothing fancy but has all the basics. The beds were a bit older but still comfortable, the bathroom clean but dated. The breakfast in the morning extensive, they have refrigerated Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches or corn dogs you can microwave, waffles and bagels.
The only issue was we were on the second floor and the person in the room above us walked very heavy on the floor a lot and got very irritating to listen too.
We did not use the pool but the water did not look very clear and it was very small.
For the price this hotel is a good value.

We were at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Aug 2011. The room was very large ( room for 2 queen beds, microwave, refrigerator, desk, dresser, easy chair and room to spare). Each bed had 4 pillows. There was 1 luggage rack, but the long dresser had room to put our 2nd suitcase on. There was a good selection of TV channels. We checked (we always do) and there were no bedbugs. The hotel was very quiet and comfortable. There is a Bob Evans restaurant next door and a Wendy's next to that. The staff was very friendly. The only problem we had was that the bathtub drained very slowly. My husband reported that to the front desk and they wrote down the info. Breakfast was pretty good: cereal, english muffins, hard boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, yogurt, fruit, waffles, microwaveable pancake and sausage sandwich.
