    « Nice mid range hotel: no elevator to 2nd floor: »

    Feeling safe at this small town in IA as we traveled through. The renovation of the hotel was nice. Rooms either adjacent to the indoor pool or outdoors. Nice they close the pool after 10:00 PM as it is noisy when people are there. It will be a place we will visit again as we travel in IA.

    « Good value for the money »

    This is a decent place to stay. The room was comfortable and decently appointed. Some details could be brought up to date (some wallpaper and trim were a bit damaged). Service was good, clerks were pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was okay. Coffee was good. Good value for the money

    « Fairfield, Iowa (Parsons College) hospitality »

    Customer service, warmth, hospitality, breakfast, and every aspect exceeded our extremely high expectations. Staff from General manager Lawrence Thompson on down -- were absolutely fantastic. Keep up the good work. Five stars from us.

    « Birthday trip »

    My room at the Best Western was large and clean with two queen beds. The front desk was kind enough to give me a first-floor location since my knees are not as good as they used to be and this hotel has no elevators. The indoor pool was outstanding: large, with attached hot tub and a lift for the handicapped; surrounded by rooms on both floors, with the first floor rooms opening directly onto the pool. Second floor rooms have balconies overlooking the pool. Upon check in I was given a voucher for a free drink at the bar. The included hot breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, corned beef hash and pancakes. Very satisfying. The birthday party was held at the hotel; the food was very good and the waitstaff cordial and helpful. On Saturday night the bar was empty except for our party.

    « Welcome surprise »

    After staying in many $500 a night rooms I was presently surprised on the accommodations of the Best Western in Fairfield. The room, bed and bathroom was great deal for my money. Many fine dining establishments too near to the hotel.

    « A Pleasant Surprise »

    About 2 yrs ago I wrote a "not so nice" review about this hotel. Much has changed in that time. The lobby appearance was very nice, the room, hotel and pool were clean and, apparently - updated. There are still small things that could be changed to make appearances better, but management certainly put the $ and effort into making this a much better hotel. Downside- an elevator to the second floor would be nice. The heating/cooling units could stand an upgrade to make them more efficient. Free breakfast was good, pretty much what was expected. All-in-all, a good stay!

    « Two Nights in Fairfield BW »

    Breakfast was good, room was clean, however, they did not clean our room after our first night. We had to go to the lobby to get towels for the second night. Clerk didn't answer phone because she was sitting in the lobby chatting with other employees. Lobby and other portions of hotel were being remodeled. Ran out of some of the hot items for breakfast.

    « Review of Fairfield, IA Best Western Hotel »

    The entire staff of this hotel was outstanding. They were professional, friendly and eager to make my stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The room was attractive and comfortable, and the quality and variety of food served in the breakfast room as well as the restaurant, was very good.

    « Loudest hotel in Fairfield by far »

    Zero sound proofing. Everyone slams their door. The types of people that tend to stay are not necessarily of the highest caliber. But it starts with the staff not enforcing law and order in their hotel. Staff generally have a whining complaining attitude, especially if you have a problem like with a dog barking nextdoor throughout the night. If you have a problem they will ask you to leave and not the one causing noise or disruption. Creepy feeling of the place too. They should probably install more cameras for security and retrain the employee who has one tooth on her ability to be in customer service.

    « Good Hotel to stay while in Fairfield Iowa »

    I liked this hotel very much, my room was perfectly clean everyday, hotel staff very polite and friendly! Food was good, internet service was excellent. No complains about this locatio. Fairfield, Iowa

    « Bug Problem »

    Have never stayed at a hotel that had bugs. My first experience. Not good. Unfortunately there are not a lot of choices for hotels in Fairfield. Management did not even apologize for the problem. If I could I would stay elsewhere.

    « OK, but room for improvement »

    This was my second time staying here. They were painting the pool and the smell was so strong the people traveling with me had to switch rooms. I also found two ugly bugs in my room and reported it to the front desk as I was leaving. On the plus side, the room was clean otherwise and the woman who ran the lounge was terrific and stayed up open late for my group.

    « Stayed for 3 days for a business trip. »

    This hotel was average. The do accept pets, which is way we stayed at this hotel. The security in this hotel is below average. All side enterances were unlocked at all times. The rooms were not connected to the main lobby. We had to enter a door next to where our was located.

    « Good value! »

    Rooms upgraded since my last stay there in 2012. Very clean and well kept. Hotel bar seems to be the happening place in this little town. Everything was received as expected. Would recommend if visiting Fairfield, IA.

    « Nice but noisy »

    The rooms are average with 1 or 2 beds and had a table with 2 hardback chairs. The swimming pool is nice, but doesn't hold more than 2 actual swimmers at a time- no lanes. If you're in it just to splash around, it will hold many. Before 8pm expect lots of children in the pool and in the small hot tub. Expect noisy adult parties that last past 10pm in the very large pool room. Check your bathroom for cleanliness, my sink was dirty. The beds & pillows are very comfortable.

    « Pretty Good, Not great »

    We were visiting family in Keosauqua and read good reviews on this hotel so we booked it for our one night stay. We arrived around 8pm and the receptionist was very nice. We went up to our room and it was freezing! We turned up the heat and that turned out okay. The beds were comfortable. The one major complaint we had was the bathroom was not cleaned very well. There were black hairs in the tub when my daughter went to take a shower, and when she lifted the floor towel from the side of the tub, there was hair under there too. We also found a piece of hair under the blankets on the one bed. Although the hotel is older, it is still in good condition. The rooms are a little bit small, but they are overall okay. Many people have said the breakfast was really good, but it must have been a bad morning for it because there was a very small selection so we decided to go out. Overall, a nice place to stay, would be a great place if it was cleaned better. Cleanliness is key to happiness!! Would probably stay here again if we had to.

    « Welcoming »

    I am based in Fairfield with work for 2 weeks and I am staying at this hotel for the duration. 2 weeks is a long time to be away from home however the facilities and friendliness of the staff has made the trip bearable. My room is comfortable and large with direct access to the pool area. However, the only downside to the location of my room is due to noise from the pool which can be late in the evening when I am trying to sleep due to the long hours I am working and early starts. I have had to complain once about noise at 1am from directly outside my room. If I stay here again I will ask for a second floor room. I cannot fault the cleanliness of the room and other areas of the hotel. Breakfast is varied enough for me not to get bored of the same thing each morning. Although, some items could be a little hotter. The hotel is located conveniently for local amenities and the town centre. I have not had the opportunity to rate the evening meals in the restaurant/bar. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting Fairfield.

    « Great place to stay »

    I was well pleased with the stay and was impressed with breakfast. I would return to this hotel any time. I would especially try the cheesy potatoes. It was the cooks special and way above average for a complementary breakfast.

    « Best Hotel in Town »

    I visit my family when in Fairfield and stay seven days or more. Very nice property with an indoor pool and hot tub that we always enjoy. The restaurant has very good food but limited hours. Kyle is a great bartender but they need to hire more than one person.

    « Quality older motel »

    Well-kept older motel. Room size not found today. Would be a great place for all kinds of receptions. Staff going out of their way to see to your comfort. Breakfast was very good. Large selection and plenty of room for guests. Motel location great for traveling through and activities in Fairfield.

    « pretty good »

    Good hotel, nice staff. Staff needs to pay more attention vacuuming behind furniture. Other than that the stay was great. Please pay more attention to detail when cleaning and dusting. This plays a big part on oncoming business.

    « The best Best Western, I've been in. »

    We had a business room. It was very large with an excellent king size bed, rollaway bed, and huge bathroom and bar. Very clean. Plenty of outlets. Room was perfect. Too bad this hotel does not have an elevator or workout center. Otherwise it would have been perfect!

    « Horrible service. »

    First off- the AC units in both the rooms and event room did not function properly. I checked several other rooms that my family was staying in and theirs were also not cooling the rooms. I also attended the anniversary party noted in the below review. 3 different times a staff member came in saying the music was too loud and had upset one guest.. next it was 2 guests. Threatened to "shut" the event down etc. Horribly unprofessional. Perhaps the staff needs trained on how to better deal w.upset guests. I will tell everyone not book an event here or stay here at all. Poor management, poor rooms and just plain poor everything.
