This was my first time staying at this hotel. It is a basic property which looks like recently partially renovated (at least second floor where I was). The air quality in the hallways need better air circulation/ventilation.
The location is good with easy access to major road systems and sufficient restaurants within 3 mile radius to grab something to eat. Given this property is branded with a Marriott name, my expectations we set for higher standards. If you erase the signs, this hotel felt like any other lower band name hotels, however I was impressed by the cleanliness.
The rooms are comfortable both in terms of layout and HVAC (although the unit was noisy). The breakfast had the usual spread of eggs and waffles maker and selection of pastries, however, the quality of the scrambled eggs and orange juice was sub par. The bathroom was a little dated in the room I stayed. The bathtub was a metal tub that was oozing red rush (which on first glance looked like blood stains and it grossed me out).
The front desk was manned by just one person. He was pleasant and could not accommodate a simple request for a room on a different floor citing they were full but in fact the entire hotel was practically empty. For check out, the reception had a sign that they will be back shortly so with no one to check out with I couldn’t change the payment credit card from my personal to business and since I was running late had to leave without being able to check out properly. I recommend they should not leave the front desk unmanned.
Despite this detailed description and some constructive criticisms, the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Wilson NC is a regular hotel that is good for a quick one night stay either if you are passing through or on a tight business trip and won’t be spending a lot of time in the hotel. For the money, I guess you can find other lesser brand name hotels in the area (and there are so many around this hotel itself) that may give you a better return on your money.
Traveling late and made an unexpected stop. The staff was fantastic, the place is clean, the room was nice and the morning meal was good. Had a great stay and highly recommend. I do not have much experience in stating at Fairfeild Inns but will be looking closer in the future.
