Fairfield Inn Albuquerque University Area

Reviewed 17 November 2012

I don't understand the negative reviews this property has been given. Please don't stay here if you expect an upscale Marriott experience at less than 100.00 per night. What can you expect? A very nice, clean room! I have stayed at Marriott resorts in Hawaii and Las Vegas (the rates were more than double than the price I quoted above) and this room was actually comparable. The bed was very comfortable with quality linens and the bathroom had a granite counter. The best part of our stay was the free breakfast. It had many more options than I would ever had expected and the coffee was great. Top this off with a very friendly staff and you've got a great hotel property. Thanks again for exceeding my expectations, Marriott!

The Marriott website says this hotel was built in the early seventies...and it shows. Time to call the bulldozers or give the hotel back to Motel 6 or Super 8. While the room appeared clean and the lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful this property does not live up to Marriott standards. If you get stuck staying here, hope that your air conditioner is loud enough to drown out the street noise and the hallway noise, as the doors let in light because they dont seal properly...or at all. I saw one guest bring the security latch to the front desk because it had pulled out of the wall! Use this place as a last resort.

I have been coming to Albuquerque for work off and on since 2003. And I have always stayed at the Fairfield Inn on Menaul. There are no surprises - except when I was there last week and saw that the lobby, desk, and rooms had been remodeled! Very nice!! Nothing fancy, but new colors, furniture, etc. It reminded me almost of a Courtyard, not a Fairfield. I had not been to Albuquerque for a year so this was a pleasant surprise. Comfortable king size bed, the usual make-your-own-waffle breakfast; relatively quiet. For the price, this is where I will continue to stay when I come to Albuquerque.

Room Tip: I agree with those that say to stay away from rooms near the elevators or ice machines.

Apparently, this Fairfield Inn has been recently remodeled as I found it to be top notch! We booked through the Marriott website - senior rate - with taxes it was $85. We got a King size bed - regular room - not suite - and the room is huge! Absolutely spotless. The complimentary breakfast is standard for Fairfield Inn's. They have Jimmy Dean muffins that you can heat up, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee, cereal, milk, bagels, pastries, butter, cream cheese, make your own waffles, etc.

I pass this way twice a year and have made it a point to stay at this hotel. It has been recently remodled and and found it to be very clean. I asked for a lower floor room but was given a second floor. The young lady at the frong desk, Erwin, changed it for me very quickly. She was very friendly and helpful. I will continue to stop at this hotel.

Newly renovated room on ground floor with king bed. Handicap friendly which made it seem even more spacious. Staff was very friendly, polite and courteous. Cookies at front desk upon arrival. Flat screen tv, desk with office grade chair, nice loveseat with coffee table. Plenty of room for luggage and clothes. Single cup coffee maker in room. Granite sink top. Tile floor is bath. Couldn't ask for anything better. Easy access to main roads, highways, and restaurants.

Even though this is an older hotel, the service from the staff far out weigh the dated rooms and exterior. This hotel is currently updating and modernizing. It is what I refer to as a late 80's hotel. Access from the outside to inside corridors. Decent but not modern. Nice rooms and comfortable beds. Surprisingly quiet to be close to roads. Speaking of roads this property is very convenient to the 25 & 40 corridors. Overall i rate this hotel a stay!

Room Tip: inside room towards courtyard rooms are the quietest.
