“Great location, outdated furnishings, Comfy bed”
Reviewed 13 April 2008

I have stayed at this hotel in the past and again recently for two nights (April 8,9, out on the 10th). It is an average older FF INN. The bed headboard, desk, alarm clock, and recliner in the room were very out dated and showing their age. The bed was comfy and I would probably stay here again because of the Marriott name, but that is about the only reason. If I had no ties to Marriott, I would probably stay in Deadwood.

I did have a few issues. The sheets were not changed from day one to day two. The desk still had signs of dinner from the night before, meaning they didn't wipe it off. The desk chair was of the four legged variety and was very unstable. The recliner was very worn and showing its age.

I am a Marriott Platinum member so I get an arrival gift at nearly all Marriott Properties. Usually it consists of bottled water and cookies. Not a big deal, but a nice gesture. My biggest complaint is that the cookies left in my room had an expiration date from 2007. I know this is the road less travelled, but 2007? Come on folks, that is not anyway to show your appreciation to your frequent guests. Check your stores and pitch the outdated stuff.

  • Liked — Marriott name close to my jobsite
  • Disliked — poor housekeeping service, outdated cookies, and old furnishings in the rooms

We stayed here on our way to Devil's Tower and Yellowstone after seeing the Black Hills, There is nothing to see in Spearfish. There are no good restaurants. This motel was clean but real budget and bare bones. The breakfast did not have any hot items other than coffee. Overall it was poor. I would not recommend this to anyone. Instead, stay in Gillette which has better motels and restaurants.

The location is excellent for Deadwood but too far away for the Black Hills attractions in Custer, Hill City and Rapid City.

The Positives -

The staff was very friendly!
Huge selection of TV stations!
The room was clean (see note below about the bath tub...)
Free continental breakfast
Plenty of travel brochures
Large rooms!
Comfortable bed.

The Negatives -

Very noisy hotel. The walls are paper thin.
They mix non-smoking and smoking rooms on the same floor (3rd floor.) The room was fine but the hallway stunk of stale smoke.
There was some black mold around the tub.
The big cushy chair in the room was worn to the point that there was a hole in the fabric on the arm.
The carpeting in the hallway was worn out.
Polyester towels in the bathroom do not absorb water. It is like towelling off with wax paper.

Bottom Line - I go to the Black Hills about four times a year for fun and to relax. I have stayed at numerous hotels in the area. This is about as good as it gets. With all of the young families going to the Black Hills to vacation, I surmise that they are pretty tough on the hotel rooms. All in all, this is not a bad place to stay.

The rooms at this Fairfield Inn are in good condition. The hotel appears to be from the 90's and the amenities and furniture are in good condition. We were given the wrong room upon check in and the management later compensated by giving us $10 off the room rate.

This hotel is very clean and meets Marriott's high standards of quality.
