Comfort Inn & Suites Coralville

Reviewed 25 November 2006

After a terrible experience at another IA hotel, we were driving around looking for something else w/ our two kids at 11 pm at night! We came to the Fairfield Inn. We were happy that the hotel was 100% non smoking. They had a room and the price was $70 a night. Great.

Our room was on the first floor, at the end of the hallway. There was just a general smell of "clean." Our room had 2 queen sized beds. The sheets were stark white - very clean and comfortable. We had wireless internet which worked well. The TV offered cable as well and the ability to watch pay-per-view. The shower/bathroom was clean. The water pressure was fine and plenty of hot water.

We stayed for 2 nights. Each morning there was breakfast: cereal, jimmy dean bacon, egg and cheese biscuits that you microwave, milk, yogurt, bagels, english muffins, blueberry and oat muffins, doughnuts, toast, waffles that you make yourself, juice, coffee, hot cocoa, etc. It was nice for all of us. A computer and flat screen TV are in the dining room.

Our one complaint was that the sheer curtains did not block out the parking lot light when we slept. However, the next night, we discovered that heavier curtains hiding behind the sheers! So that was our fault.

My daughter used the pool daily. It was clean. Overall, this was a very pleasent experience.

The Fairfield Inn, Coralville, IA is a Marriott chain. We stayed there for the Iowa/Wisconsin game the weekend of 11/10. As of late October 2006, ALL Marriott hotels including their other brand (Fairfield included) became non-smoking. The first room we went to upon check in was on the third floor. Someone smoked in this room, was probably charged a fee for smoking in the newly remodeled room that was converted from smoking to non, but nothing was done to remove the smoke smell. The room was clean physically, but as soon as I walked in I smelled the awful smoke. I am pregnant and VERY sensitive to smoke right now.

We went to the front desk where they assigned us another room, one that was ALWAYS non-smoking. It was the first floor, right next to the ice machine. Rather than keep whining and complaining, we decided to give this room a whirl. What a noisy disaster of a sleep we got for the two nights we were there. Stay out of the room next to the pool and the ice machine. You will not get ANY sleep!

Upon check out, my husband tried to register a complaint with the front desk. All the manager said was to send our complaint to corporate. This shows poor customer service.

In conclusion, the transformation of smoking rooms to non smoking rooms, at least at the Fairfield Inn in Coralville, was unsuccessful as of my stay dates.

My advice, check in early to have the ability to change rooms before they get booked.
