Even though this Fairfield has been around for a few years now, it has since been remodeled and everything looks modern and clean. The staff was very very friendly and willing to do whatever it took to make our stay great. The rooms are nice and clean and the bathrooms were a nice size. Location is excellent, right by the...

We were part of wedding group who had reserved a number of rooms. Through a mix up on the part of one of our group we booked 95 yr grandmother in room with her daughter in a single sized bed! This was not the hotel's mistake but they worked very hard to get them moved to room with two beds....

Good service and after asking for a quiet room the staff gave us a great quiet location. The staff helped us with a carryout pizza menu that worked out good. The room was clean and modern. The breakfast area was busy and we waited for a table-more area would be nice for a busy hotel. We would stay here again.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and decided it was a good location, as I was attending a Bridal Shower in Saratoga Springs. The price was reasonable with my AAA discount. When we first pulled up, there was a spacious parking lot in the front. When we walked in, we immediately smelled a mixture of a musty odor and...

This was a last-minute pick for one-night stopover. Very convenient to NY thruway or Rt 90. 2 queen beds comfortable, bathroom clean. Mini-fridge and microwave (which actually had extra ports to charge mobile devices). No safe though. Free breakfast was good enough. Nothing fancy but solid choice for stopover off highway.

We arrived exhausted and hungry, and the front desk fellow was a hero! Got our room right away (and for a great price), and he sent us off in the direction of the perfect restaurant. Great value, and very comfortable and clean.

My wife and I from Ohio stayed at this Fairfield Inn on our way to visit our daughter and family who live near Burlington. The map we used was not accurate, so we had to ask directions to get there. There is a sign indicating an exit from I-90 to Washington Avenue which would have gotten us there easily. Maps...
