“Great weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

My husband and I went to Chincoteague Island for a weekend getaway. It was wonderful. I highly recommend this trip. It was very relaxing and beautiful scenery. I would love to return to Chincoteague for their annual "Pony Swim". It's held every July.

Hubby and I stayed one night on Sept 20. It is a nice new hotel, the beds were extremely comfy. And we loved the pillows too. It was also kind of quiet, which I was not expecting after reading some of the other reviews. So we were happy. We also enjoyed the free breakfast that was offered, we did drive up to the beach to watch the sunrise and then we drove back to the hotel for breakfast. The front desk receptionist was nice as were all the hotel employees we encountered.
I would recommend this Fairfield Inn.

To begin, the hotel is nice and bright with rocking chairs near the front entrance and a nicely done back patio area overlooking the water. I found the king room to be pretty standard in terms of the design and décor. It wasn't overly large but wasn't cramped. The window in the room didn't offer a lot in terms of natural light, but the rest of the hotel has great windows with a lot of natural light. There's a surprisingly spacious mini refrigerator and a microwave in the room. Overall, it was a pleasant stay at this new hotel. The town itself is pretty small, so this hotel really offers a new bright addition on the water.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay with us. Many of our guests love the outdoor seating. Both the rocking chairs in front and the tables on the back deck. The back deck offers a wonderful location to see sunsets. I hope that you will continue to stay with us the next time you are in the area.

We came here after the season (Sept) and had a wonderful suite overlooking the bay. Go for it! Much better than looking over the parking lot. Great room, very clean property BUT the breakfast is gut plug at best. Such a shame for an otherwise wonderful experience!

I was in town covering a launch at NASA to the Space Station, but I wish I'd had more time at this hotel. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are huge, the hotel is very quiet and the staff is friendly and helpful. This hotel is everything you expect from a airfield Inn.

Room Tip: You'll get a better view of the water with the even-numbered rooms.

I am a frequent business traveler to Chincoteague, and have also stayed at the other large chain hotels on the island. By comparison, the Fairfield has advantages you would expect of a new facility...fluffy towels, modern decor, and comfortable beds that aren't worn down from years of use. The patio area is also particularly nice.

The major disadvantage is that the walls are extremely thin. They are "I can hear my neighbor's TV" thin. When you combine this with the excessively loud band that plays 50 feet away at the Chincoteague Inn about four nights a week, it's pretty unpleasant. If you're in town to vacation and party, it's probably fine. If you want a place to wind down and watch TV or read a book in peace in the evenings, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: A room on the south side should theoretically have a little less exposure to the music.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I apologize that your experience was not what you expected. This will be the last season of the bands next door as they are remodeling over the winter. I can certinally understand how the noise from there could affect your stay when trying to relax. I hope that you will consider staying with us again the next time you are in Chincoteague.

We were originally headed home and decided to extend our vacation. Since this was a new hotel we figured it would be good. Let's just say that in a matter of 24 hrs our family had three different rooms all for different reasons. Sue at the Front Desk was the most professional of all the folks we encountered and exemplifies the true Marriott experience. All other front desk staff need some additional training. Breakfast was standard for this particular brand of Marriott and did not change from day to day. Pool was small but served it's purpose. The hotel itself is in a good location on the water; as long as you can deal with mosquitos, green heads, sea gulls and ducks all the time. The building is very noisy and as a previous reviewer mentioned you can hear through the walls. The doors are heavy both balcony and entrance doors and you hear a constant "slam" of the doors which is disturbing. This property is also supposed to be smoke free but while out on the deck/pool we saw several people smoking on their balonies. If you are a rewards member you will not be treated as such upon arrival; this is the first time I encountered this in my many travels. This hotel did disappoint but maybe after they work out the details and have been opened for awhile I may give it another try. If not there are several other name brands a few doors down..
