We arrived late and left early the next morning, so we didn't do much other than sleep and eat breakfast. Breakfast was OK; I've definitely had better. As far as Fairfield Inns go, this one is probably about average. I paid $109 for the night, which seems a little pricey considering the age, cleanliness, and decor, but the Hampton Inn... More

Great hotel that we stay at when visiting our ISU student. Have stayed here several times over the past 18 months. Rooms are clean and quiet. Decor is new as are the room appointments. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good though that area can be busy at certain times of the morning. The hotel is only a few... More

Stayed one night with family. Hotel is absolutely beautiful, super clean. Staff was out-of-their-way friendly. Wonderfully soft beds; big tub/shower with high, adjustable shower head. Breakfast was filled with options (hard boiled & scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, waffles, muffins, breads/bagles, fruits, cereals, yogurt, juices, etc). Yes, it was a bit pricier, but well worth it. Should the need arise again,... More

Our stay for 1 week for business was good in this hotel; clean comfortable rooms, excellent wifi, average breakfast though nice choice for coffee in the morning: all in all a very pleasant comfortable stay.

Have only stayed there once for business but slept wonderfully. The beds are a little high off the ground, but once I made it, the sleep was excellent. Everything was clean and well maintained. The people were helpful, but not intrusive. Breakfast is your typical Fairfield. Not much nearby, but the local strip of restaurants is only the next exit... More

We stayed one night while going to a football game. Room was very nice , great shower head. Didn't take advantage of other amenities though. Would stay again on our next trip through. Good location off the interstate .

Stayed 5 nights at this location and it was a very nice stay. With a renovated lobby and rooms the price was right. The usual FREE breakfast WIFI and health amenities were also available. If I were in this location again I would stay here. From checkin to checkout everything was Marriott quality and the customer service representatives were friendly.... More
