Accommodations Review:

The rooms are average sized, mine featured a queen bed and a small table, plenty of room for all of my gadgets and whatnot. The one drawback was that the phones did not have a data jack so I had to move the bed to get to the phone cord for my modem.

Local calls and toll free calls had no surcharge at all by the hotel. In room amenities included coffee maker with complementary coffee, mini fridge, hair dryer and an ironing board and iron. There were a few more TV stations than normal including HBO and of course Pay Per View.  

There were only a few minor issues aside from the noise which I probably could have avoided had I not been so tired I couldn't wait for a room. The housekeeping service was very effective, the room was spotless, but service was rather slow my room wasn't made up until around 4 PM. I also noted that the doors didn't always close securely, so an extra tug was needed to ensure the doors latched properly. Even with those few minor and correctable issues, the Fairfield is one of the nicest hotels available for a reasonable price.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$74-$89

Other Comments:

The Fairfield is Mariott's entry to the moderate priced lodgings market. This hotel used to be the Ramada Inn Maingate before the Ramada took over the old Saga Inn. The complex is very large, possibly the largest of the walking distance hotels, smaller than only the Howard Johnsons. The main building is 9 stories with a smaller wing next to the pool.

The first thing I noticed that set this hotel apart is the fact it is more like a hotel than most of the other inns and motels in the area. The Fairfield boasts an actual bell desk and a huge lobby (there is also a convenience store and a Pacific Coast Tours desk in the lobby). The check in staff were friendly and efficient, even though I had to take a poolside room on the ground floor because that was the only thing available for early check-in.

As one might expect a poolside room is a tad bit noisy, if you stay here you may wish to hold out for a 9th floor room if at all possible.
