This is a very convenient location to SDSU and getting to campus if that is what brings you to Brookings. Even though it is close to the highway, either the windows are more sound proofed, or it is the orientation of the building not being directly parallel to the road that makes the difference. Everything was clean, updated, comfortable and well prepared with a nice welcome at the desk when I arrived with my coworker.
However, there are a few minor quirks, for example with the lighting in the room where EVERYTHING was controlled by the central switch so when you turned things on the desk, wall, two night stand AND the corner floor lamp came on. So if you turned the lights off, that also turned off the plug in the base of the lamps for charging phones or laptops and such. It was a bit annoying to have to go around and turn off all the lamp switches so the room wasn't so bright, but still be able to use the plugs. There also was no phone at the bed despite the fact there was an outlet. It wasn't such a big deal to resort to the cell phone, but doing international calling card stuff is easier on a land line without using cell minutes. The breakfast is good, typical for Fairfield Inns, though the seating area is somewhat limited for the size of hotel and number of rooms. For some it may be unpleasantly busy at certain times of the morning.
The other caution is that around 8am, the traffic in that immediate area is a bit crazy because there are a couple of electronics manufacturing plants right behind the hotel and down the road so the cars are STREAMING in and make turning left to the road, and then turning left to get on the main highway back into Brookings a little bit of a challenge.
Overall though this seems to be a well run place and I would stay here again.
