“Just stayed one night, would not have stayed longer”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We found the evening desk staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful. We got there late, checked in, put our stuff away, and got something to eat before we tried the TV. It had no signal. The girl at the desk wanted to move us but we were already in after a long day and my wife was trying to take a shower. When she got done we found that the tub didn't drain. Again the girl at the desk wanted to help, but at this time of night all we wanted to do was to relax in piece. We didnt move rooms, the tub didnt get fixed, and the tv never worked. I talked to the assistant manage the next morning and she said she would try to get us some of our points back, but we never heard from her again. The room was clean but the furniture was scraped up, the wall tex was patched, all iin all they just dont take any pride in the hotel. If I didnt get it on points I would not have stayed.

Fair price for a rather ordinary Fairfeild Inn property. Generally clean and close to a shopping mall and Walmart if you forgot something for your trip. Even though your practically in the mall parking lot the hotel was quiet at night during this weekend stay. Staff was friendly. No on-siite workout room.

A one-night mid-week stay can be misleading as a hotel visit is depends on the behavior of those at the site on a given night, but this property met expecatations for a short-stay at reasonably low cost. Positives are the flat-screen TV with HD channels and free Wi-Fi. There seem to be varying degrees of style in fairfields and this property leans to the basic level of bare-bones but comfortable furnishings. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Location is convenient. The rooms have a window AC/Heater unit but instead of the poor dial design for temperature these units had plus-minus buttons and a temperature setting for by AC and heat which is a definite plus. The only thing keeping this from a 5-star rating is the belief that it is a roll of the dice and the stay is quality is predicated on getting a good room away from any noise and having other guests who emmulate similar behavior. Another long-standing criticism of the 3-story hotel property is the lighting that washes the exterior of the property to provide safety yet causes the rooms to be less than dark with shades drawn. Stay here for a night if you are in the area but there are risks associated with any choice in this price-point range of hotels.

Room Tip: Room 318 is in an area where there is no parking directly below as there are trees planted there and...

The hotel was very clean and staff was friendly. I have stayed in other hotels for about the same amount of money and had suites. I thought it was over priced for what it was. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean and smelled good. The temperature in the room was very warm. Which was very uncomfortable for the summer days. Half of the tv channels were fuzzy and you were unable to watch them. I asked for extra towels and never received them. The indoor pool is nice, but only goes to 4 feet deep. The hot tub is hot!! Outside of the hotel is a mall, but a lot of the restaurants around the hotel/mall are closed down. Its very close to the boat ramp for Lake Huron, which if you wanted to boat or fish, would be nice.

We stayed here for one night and were extremely pleased. We had great customer service from the moment we called to make a reservation. The staff was extremely friendly and always had a smile on their face. The room was clean and the continental breakfast had great choices. My kids loved the make it yourself Belgian waffles and the staff was constantly in the breakfast room checking to see if anything needed cleaning or more items were needed. It was a great hotel for a quick overnight stay.

We stopped here for one night while on a motorcycle ride. The hotel is easy to find in a built up area, with malls and large stores within walking distance as well as many restaurants.

The property is entirely smoke free, so I am not sure where the comment about the smell of smoke came from by another poster; I didn't smell even a hint of cigarette smell.

This property typlifies what you can expect and usually recieve from a Fairfield Inn:
-decent size and functional room and bathroom
-small indoor pool area
-clean room and common areas
-decent bed with nice sheets and pillows
-a quite and comfortable place to lay your head

My only two minor complaints would be the small "tube" TV in the room and the breakfast while OK, was somewhat underwelming.

Good place to lay your head - clean, up to-date, friendly. Pool is open late for grownups. Friendly Staff, pet friendly and good complementary breakfast.
