“Adequate, Clean, Convenient”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Our request for a high floor with frig was honored and we may have been given an upgrade (we are Lifetime Platinum Elite members), but if it was, it was a bare bones upgrade. However, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and it served the purpose - we needed a place to sleep for one night on our way back to Florida. Breakfast was basic but we expect that from Fairfield Inns; one big positive about the breakfast room staff - they did not make hot water in a container that had been used to make coffee. When they do, it leaves a coffee odor and unpleasant taste when you make hot tea!


Bottom line: it's a value driven hotel so we got our money's worth and it was very convenient to I-475.

Room Tip: Room 303 faced I 475 but since we were leaving early in the morning, the noise did not bother us.

Am loyal to Marriott brand & this was only property available in location we needed to be.
PRO: Location is great - easily accessible off 475 bypass. Movie theatre, shopping & some restaurants across street.
CONS: Rooms are bare bones. Towels are small, thin & rough. Toiletries were basic. If we didn't have a white noise machine with us doubt we'd have gotten much sleep at all and we were on the top floor. Not worth the $$ paid.
Would not stay here again.

Room was clean but needed updating. Towels were thin. Staff was available but not attentive. Breakfast was really depleted before was refreshed. It was a good value and certainly Bette than Best Western but not up to great Mariott standards.

We stay at this motel every time we're on our way back from visiting family in Florida. It's a little more than half way back and it's convenient to the Macon Bypass exit 9. We tried motels at exit 3 of the bypass and the traffic and large main street is horrendous. This place is clean, comfortable and across the street from a strip mall. You don't have to go back to the main drag to get into the shopping area - just cross Plantation Inn Drive. There are plenty of restaurant choices, a Kroger gas station and even a movie theater. It also is not very expensive for a Marriott chain. We're in their rewards program, so although you could find a cheaper place to stay we often get freebie nights through their megabonuses and staying here makes it worth it.

Spent 1 night here which was 1 too many! The floors between the levels seem to be made of thin wood. I could hear every step from the person above me, including coming in at midnight and waking again at 5:45. I'll never understand the need to walk around so much in such a small room. The clock didn't have dimmer and was making clicking sounds, I finally unplugged it. I didn't try the breakfast, I was just glad to leave.

At $45 a night on Priceline, the Fairfield Inn is above what you would expect for a rest stop hotel. I have easily seen much better 2 1/2 star hotels, but this hotel is clean and the staff is kind. The rooms are basic, but nice. My family thought the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was minimal, however we were satisfied with the muffins, waffles, and cereal. Overall, a fine place for a one night stay with children.

This place needs a lot of work! We put a lot of stock in the Marriott brand, and this one did not come close to typical expectations for a Fairfield Inn---more like your $59 quick stay motel. My biggest complaint: threadbare towels and low quality bed linens. Fortunately this was stop over on the way to Florida with no need for real amenities, but how disappointed some must be to find the pool and hot tub covered, and the whole pool deck in need of a good pressure wash. Mark this one off the list. On a positive note, the reservation and service team were very friendly and helpful.
