Reviewed 12 June 2012

My husband and I stayed overnight while en route to Mackinac Island, MI. We did not have an advance registration; the friendly and efficient young woman at the desk assigned us a quiet room on the third floor after we told her we had been on the road for 9 hours. The room was immaculate and had a refrigerator and microwave---both very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were smooth. The large window could be opened for fresh air and the window screen provided added protection. The hotel is located adjacent to a shopping mall with a variety of restaurants within walking distance in a very safe area. The front desk clerk was most helpful with restaurant recommendations. Breakfast buffet was varied and nicely presented with an excellent selection of cold and hot choices, including delicious Belgian waffles. This hotel also had a few welcome extras---homemade cookies and fruit at check-in plus complimentary "social hour" food every evening (homemade chicken noodle soup the evening we stayed). We stay at Marriott properties frequently and this Fairfield Inn clearly exceeded usual standards.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel face an access road to the shopping mall and are very quiet overnigh...

I intended to stay at the Doubletree downtown but it was sold out. Wanting to stay at a chain property, I opted for the Fairfield Inn on the north side of Bay City.

The Location:

I was very pleased with the location. There are three decent restaurants a short walk away that serve alcohol, i.e., Red Lobster, Harvey's Grill & Bar and Buffalo Wild Wings. Also within short walking distance are numerous casual/fast food restaurants that don't serve alcohol, Rally's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Bob Evans and two Subways.

Across a big parking lot is the Bay City Mall that has a cinema. Across the street from the hotel on the other side is a Wal-Mart.

There is bus service downtown on Route #6 that you can catch at the Target at the mall or at the Wal-Mart. But it only operates on weekdays during the day.

The room:

The room lacked character, rather blah. But it was quite clean. I enjoyed the screened window that opened. The dresser and desk were marred. The lampshade was missing from the dresser lamp; that's a first. The flat-screen TV functioned well.

The staff and breakfast:

The evening clerk was pleasant and accommodating. The day clerk was also quite pleasant although busy handling both the desk and maintaining the breakfast room. The free breakfast was acceptable.

Of the Fairfield Inns, this location has provided a high quality stay each time we've been there. Bay City is a great destination for a long weekend, and we keep going back to this location.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side can be a little quieter.

Not an overall rough stay, and I was able to use award miles instead of cash.. but the girl at the desk did not check my ID - just took my name. When we returned from our night out - my boyfriend almost slipped on the wet floor in the hallway because there was no signage. The front door is also supposed to be locked after 11pm and it was not. Breakfast was ok, attentive staff there... but lots of loose pre-teens running around. We did not use the pool because it always had kids there and they were fairly loud. Adult hour needs to be more than 11p-12m. Great shower head in the bath and name brand bath products. Tv selection was ok. Heater worked well.

This is definately everything a fairfield inn is supposed to be. A nice clean place to stay with an excellent clean breakfast. We were there with our kids hockey team for a tournament, and they graciously let us use the breakfast area room to do activities with the kids at night. The only issue was the woman working at the front desk at the time. She was quite annoyed with kids and gave them crap for everything. While you have to expect children to behave, as a parent I found her to go over the top, what do they expect when you have a hockey team there. If you want to bring your kids hockey team there, think twice if this staff member is working. I wish I got her name so I could have complained to the manager.

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.
