“Just okay”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

When I originally booked my room, months in advance, the price was $89/night. I needed to change my reservation to two nights instead of three, which for some reason increased the price to $109/night. While the hotel was fine, it wasn't worth the price. My room was not ready until after 5pm, and when it was, there were towels missing and a large wet spot on the carpet in front of the sink (I did mention this to the front desk, and they checked for a leak but did nothing more). Strangely, the hotel did not have an elevator- luckily for my handicapped mother, we were on the first floor. On to the good- free wireless is always nice, and the signal was pretty reliable. The pool and hot tub area was a nice, unexpected touch. The free breakfast was typical Fairfield fare, but a good feature. The front desk was friendly and helpful in providing local directions. All in all, not a bad experience, but I wouldn't pay that much for a room again.

I stay at this property often, as I am up to visit with my young daughter in the area. I check Kayak for rates in the area - and this place always comes in at the low price.

But never fear - friendliness and helpfulness of staff, cleanliness of the rooms, quietness of the room (which surprises since it is right off the highway) and great breakfasts make this a great value. There is truly no reason to spend more elsewhere - as the Fairfield gives you all of your basic needs. Strong property.

Hotel was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Conveniently located near restaurants within walking distance. Parking lot next door can accommodate big rigs or in my case truck and horse trailer easily.

Room Tip: Indoor pool. May want to be away from.

We just stayed at this property this last weekend, and were so happy with the cleanliness, newness, and service at this hotel, we will never stay anywhere else in this area from now on! Everything was spotless and perfectly maintained. From our room to the pool area and the breakfast room, nothing could have been cleaner, and that's what's most important to me. It is not an expensive, upscale hotel, but for a midrange hotel, you can't do better than this! Our room had a fridge, a microwave, and 4 pillows for each of the double beds. We were told the rooms were just remodeled and finished in December of last year, and you can tell! The public areas like the pool and breakfast room were very nice, and the free continental breakfast was really good with lots of hot choices like sausage and eggs and waffles. When we had a problem connecting to the free wi-fi in the room the second night, we called the front desk and they had a tech, guy call us back within 4 minutes, he walked us through the problem. I'll say it again, this is our place in the Lancing area from now on!

While the NCAA does the college football fan no favors scheduling 8pm kickoffs for TV, booking area hotels have allowed us to enjoy the games without the nagging thoughts of having to drive home into the wee hours of Sunday morning. For the recent MSU/Wisconsin game, we had the pleasure of staying at the Fairfield Okemos. We found out the next morning that it took us less time to get from campus to the Fairfield than it took friends to drive to hotels much closer to campus. The Grand River to Okemos Rd. route took no time at all. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful, room was clean and comfortable and breakfast the next morning was excellent, even as compared with the breakfasts we have experienced at other properties of this same chain. They do demand top dollar for an "event" weekend, but was worth the price given the option of being on the road until 3am.

Hotel stay was routine for a Fairfield Inn. No surprises or disappointments.The hotel is located close to several restaurants within easy walking distance. The overall price/value is exceptional as it usually is with all Fairfield Inns
