Everyone, and I mean everyone, from the front desk people to the janitor, were very pleasant to talk to and very nice. I have never had this level of friendliness at any hotel. I even heard on numerous occasions the front desk people speak very friendly to the construction crew who is remodeling the hotel. About the remodel: Don't worry...

It's a basic Fairfield Inn and Suites right off the freeway within a bunch of chain casual dining restaurants; Bar Louie, Hooters and Outback Steakhouse. Bryant, the guy at the front desk was cheerful and efficient. A sign said renovations would be done in May 2016. To pick a nit, I was expecting a room upgrade being a Marriott Gold...

The rooms are small, but adequate. The front desk guys Michael and Brian were awesome, so helpful. We didn't use the outdoor pool as it was snowing. We did eat breakfast and it was pretty standard complimentary breakfast. I'd stay here again.

This hotel is an okay place to stay but it needs renovations, which are going on at this time (otherwise I would likely not return). The bed was just okay, the pillows were not to my liking. The rooms have to old noisy heaters, no thermostat, which I consider highly unacceptable in this day and age. It did sever the...

We stayed here while visiting our daughter during parents weekend for Valparaiso University. We had previously stayed at the Fairfield in valpo and found it a bit tired. While this is a 15 minute drive, the nicer hotel more than made up for it.

I got caught in the Blizzard in NW Indiana and staionary traffic for nearly 3 hours this evening on Interstate I65, and booked a room at this hotel rather than take another 2 plus hours in Icy conditions to reach Chicago. Arriving at the hotel via snow covered, unploughed "back roads", at 10pm, I was quickly checked in by Bryant....

Stayed here last month and accidentally left my toiletry bag in my room. Staff cannot locate it. Very frustrating as I am positive I left it. Hotel room is older and in need of renovation which is scheduled for this year. Staff was friendly. Good location.

We were impressed after a long day of travel and disagreements with the front desk at another hotel. That when we met Brian, he was a breathe of fresh air.

I had a last minute need for an overnight stay. As a Marriott Gold member, I turned to their app and quickly found a reasonably priced room. The service was Marriott's usual top notch level. The room, however, is the worst I've had in over 50 nights with Marriott this year. The room was small, and the bathroom even smaller....
