“Nice staff but property is basically a motel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

We've stayed in Fairfield Inn's many times before, mostly in Southern California, so we expected our room to be clean and neat and the room to be a reasonable size. I must say, this Fairfield Inn is basically a motel with the Marriott logo. I was shocked to see how small and dingy the room was, not to mention awkward- there's no closet to hang clothes- just a rod right at the front door entrance. We couldn't get the door open or closed half the time because our coats on the closet rod kept getting caught in the front door! The bathroom was clean but tiny- think of a bathroom stall and you get the idea of size. Day number two the toilet clogged. By day two we just had enough and checked out...

The staff, however, was amazingly very helpful and nice, so I do want to make mention of that. Too bad the facility doesn't make up for the staff though.

Marriott has done their best with a cramped and dated facility. The rooms are too small, and are accessed by these endless "Get Smart" style hallways. Still, it was clean and updated, the staff was helpful, and it is right off 128. A short, but awkward (no sidewalk), walk will take you to commuter rail. A similarly short but awkward walk will get you to the new Legacy Place shopping center/ restaurant complex. We didn't try the attached Italian restaurant, but it looked promising. If the numbers work, and zoning will allow, Marriott should doze this facility and build a mid rise facility with more elbow room.

Looking at the buildings I was concerned. However, upon entering my room the furniture was in good condition and the expected amenities were acceptable. A flat panel TV was in-room and the furniture was not marred. Some occupants were noisy. I hate when people let their doors slam. Especially if they are arriving LATE! One night my room keys failed to operate. This required me to walk outside to the front desk where I waited behind someone checking in, someone purchasing snacks and another complaining about his TV remote. It was past 11:00 pm and my patient were thin, but I was polite. Breakfast was ok. No eggs or sausage here, however microwave eggs, burritos and sandwiches available. Housekeepers did a nice job. Desk staff ok. Staying in a Courtyard next week. Waiting to see the difference.

Room Tip: I always ask for a high floor. There is the highway nearby, so I guess to be put on the quiet side...

Relatively updated Fairfield Inn, conveniently located next to 128. lots of local shopping. Friendly staff, clean rooms. A/C & heater was pretty noisy.

Room Tip: ask for one in the building across from the office

We stayed here to visit family nearby and had a large group of college students checking in at the same time as us, but we had a quiet and restful sleep. I like that they made you sign a statement agreeing to quiet hours from 10PM to 6 am. good breakfast, comfortable bed, clean bathroom and room

Night and day. I stayed here a month ago, and had a great room, great service. Now My room is tiny, facing the parking area. I have to hang blankets on the curtains to block out some of the light. The fan doesn't work, so I can't block out any of the noise. the restaurant has a hoard of fruit flies. In our drinks in our food. It was horrible! and my sheets have what looks like blood stains on them.

Room 319 is not where you want to stay! and if this fruit fly infestation in here to stay, eat at a burgurking! don't go to the bar here!

A very clean hotel with a great location. We were in town for a wedding, but we could walk to lots of shops in the nearby town center, enjoyed dinner at PF Changs (also walking distance), and had a late night drink at the Yard House, which had over a hundred draft beers. It was a short drive to downtown Boston and to the T.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room in the main part of the building. One of the rooms in the other section sme...
