The staff is nice and friendly which is why I gave it three stars but the room was kinda dated. Tube tv, old furniture and the carpet was kinda gross. But it is in a convient location and the front desk guy said he would have upgraded me if they weren't sold out (air and water show that week).

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE! Stay far away. I went to this place, as my original hotel was being renovated, and no one at the on-line travel service I used bothered to notice that. Anyway, Re-booked to the Fairfield. The staff was very helpful and nice. At least the front desk crew was. I entered my room, which took a few minutes to open, as the card-reader on the door did NOT unlock the door on the first or 8th try--every single day of my trip! Anyway, FINALLY gained entry, and was greeted with a stench of mold and mildew. I called the front desk, and they sent a guy up with some masking spray. Didn't work. He told me the hotel had new AC units which ran all the time, and sucked in humid air from inside. He went on to lie to me, telling me he would have a dehumidifier placed in the room the next day to dry it out and get rid of the smell. "If that doesn't work, we'll switch you to another room..." Well, apparently this guy is only authorized to apologize, which he didn't even do , by the way. When I returned to the room the next evening, NO dehumidifier. No guy from the day before, no offer to switch me to another room. Lies our hoteliers tell us, right? Oh, and the AC unit that ran continuously? I fixed that in two minutes after Liar Guy left. I looked at the controls, and saw the "AUTO" button. I pushed it, dropped the fan speed to 'low' which was still pretty high, and set it for 68-degrees. AMAZINGLY, when the unit got the room to 68, it SHUT OFF!!!! Liar Guy is apparently Stupid Liar Guy, if he couldn't figure this out. The AC cycled on and off, as you would expect, and though it was horrendously loud for a 'new unit' (another Liar Guy special?), it kept the room comfortable. So, I stay in the room for four nights. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, and the carpet was very grimy. But the piece de resistance were the COCKROACHES I saw on my last night. I called to report this, and was told by the very nice front-deck automaton that I could change rooms, should i want and that she apologized. Why I asked... did you let the roaches go in my room? I informed her that it was 11:30PM, and it was a little late for musical bedrooms, and could she guarantee the next room A) would not smell, and B) would be roach free? No, of course not. I stayed in roach central. Other issues: armchair in a strange location, Room was too small for an armchair... get rid of it, guys; towels that were probably bought by lots for $5..00 per lot. They were cheap, rough and threadbare. I'd call them John Wayne towels: Rough, tough, and they take nothing off no one; The shower curtain liner was an inch TOO SHORT for the tub/shower. Consequently, there was a puddle after every shower; The sheets had holes in them; There was a long black hair in the sink (I am bald...); and the maid kept taking the soap when cleaning the room every day; there is ONCE ice maker for all three floors; the walls were SO thin I knew how 'regular' the guys in the next room were. I could even hear them when they whispered. All-in-All a horrible experience. NEVER STAY WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!!!

ASK if Renovation is on and whether MAID is working!
Staff was nice tho. They were told not to tell?
Breakfast still there but you sit in a small hotel room, coffee out in the hallway.
My room was nice until I spotted blood on the comforter, in the morning. (Checked in 2am, so I went straight to bed and it was dark!) THEN saw an opened, empty package for rubbers on the floor next to bed on the opposite side I slept. Thank God I did not find the rubbers.
Do like the location, near many restaurants and i75. Price is also good but..... gotta think long and hard if I want to return. I do like Marriott...

This place is decent if you are in town for a couple of nights and need a place to stay. However, don't expect much more than what you pay for. The internet is slow. The floors need to be re-carpeted, and the furnishings are dated, probably 5+ years old. The bed was comfortable and the wake up call was on time.
I'll stay here again, but its not a 5-star stay.
