Room # on doors with blue tape making it seem like it was new or undergoing renovation which we realized neither were the case. The cleanliness of the entire hotel was very poor. The shower water control was on backwards and when used comes off the wall completely. The toilet does not flush hence the plunger that’s in the bathroom. 1 bed had no top sheet on the other bed no coverlet. 2 towels in 4 person room that were dirty and in very poor quality. When we called to have more sent up no one ever came. The ironing board was broken and the iron barely worked. They didn’t clean our room at end of day and when we walked through the lobby realized that was a blessing as 2 people were there complaining that things had been stolen from their rooms. No coffee at 630am as advertised and when I went and asked about it I was obviously annoying the person at the front desk. The fire alarm went off at 3am for at least 30 minutes. Times that we did call the front desk there was either no answer for at least 1 minute ringing or I would just hang up. The Work out room is disgusting nothing clean, no wipes in canister, the hand sanitizer dispenser doesn’t work so a minimally full jug that is disgusting on counter. no towel or paper towels even available. 1/2 the exercise machines either not plugged in or work at all. Marijuana smoke throughout the hoteI thick and constant. we would have changed hotels but we were there seeing our son in the military and all time consumed.

The entire entryway, including the unloading area, was completely iced over! We notified the desk clerk at 10pm and at 8am the following morning, NOTHING had been done to address it! The storm that brought the ice was predicted for a full week, AFTER another storm hit the area. We were shocked they had NOTHING ON HAND to protect clients safety! The room was NOT CLEAN! The coffee maker has old coffee in it (YUCK!), there was no hand soap, & there were empty beer cans and wadded newspapers in the nightstand! We noticed two of these issues in the am and we're very concerned! The sheet is directly on the mattress with no longer of any kind. There was no coffee available in the lobby at 9am as both containers were empty. The "free breakfast" was in a bag with a muffin under the juice and yogurt and there was a very soft apple in a separate bag. Will definitely NOT return here and would never recommend!

We could hear quite a bit of outside traffic. The woman working the desk when we checked in and throughout the night was very friendly and recommended a local restaurant that was amazing.

I showed up around 1:30pm to check-in. After standing for 10 minutes without anyone acknowledging me, i was greeted with, NO CHECK-IN UNTIL 3:00.!". He didn't say hello, how are you, can I help you, etc.. As we checked out the next morning, i asked about the continental breakfast that was advertised with the room and was told that is was simply a bag that included an apple and a muffin. I could have stayed at a Residence Inn or an Airbnb for $40. I will not stay at a Fairfield Inn again. Its the little things that make the biggest differences sometimes.

I arrived at 4:20 pm, and had to wait until 5pm to check-in. Check-in clerk was less than friendly, to put it politely. As I prepared to go to bed at midnight, I saw that the sheets on my bed hadn't been changed. There were several stands of hair on the pillows, fitted sheet, top sheet, and comforter. I complained at front desk. I was told the only resolution was to change the linen myself. Unfortunately, all of the other hotels in the city were sold out. I changed the sheets. The sign for breakfast area indicated that breakfast ended at 10 am on weekends. Attempted to get breakfast at 915am, but was told that breakfast ended at 9, everyday.
