Issues with my budget business stay
Yes, this place has reasonably priced rooms in an expensive area, but don't think that you will get superior value for money. Checkin was efficient and friendly, but the room decor reeked of 70s-vintage Holiday Inn. The carpet was thoroughly damp and fungal, it reeked too. Bed was substandard, softish and not comfortable. WiFi should have been speedy (10 Mbps) but seemed painfully slow, could it have been a DNS or firewall issue? The bathroom had aging fixtures and a low-flow toilet that never really flushed. My upper floor room had a foot-wide balcony accessible from a sliding glass door with no markings on it: definite safety issue. Downstairs the breakfast area was crowded and serving average continental brekkie fare, but the coffee machine actually made a decent cup of coffee (I guess that was the highlight of my stay). Next time I'm in the area, I'm coughing up for the new Hampton near PBI on Australian.
Good place to stay
I stay at this hotel every time I visit Palm beach because of the excellent location. Fairfield inn is across the street from the beach and so close to Palm beach. It is clean and safe. The free breakfast is a good, but often is so busy, there is barely a place to sit. Pool is good, nothing special. Does look out at the intercoastal. Compared the high prices in the surrounding area, this hotel is a good place to stay. Usually pay between 127.00 and 140.00 per night.
A pleasant surprise!
After reading the reviews I was scared to stay here but we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel room is average and the most major drawback is that there are no room safes. You can use the safety deposit boxes at the front desk. The help in this hotel was wonderful from the maids to the front desk all extremely friendly and accomodating. The pool area was very pleasant and always plenty of towels. The continental breakfast was very nice and coffee was always available. There is a room with a tv and a dvd player and free internet access. Laundry facilities are available and soap was available at the front desk. There are no bell men or on site restaurant but we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
Not a typical Fairfield Inn
I usually like to stay in Fairfield Inn properties because they are a great value and generally well-kept and clean. This one is the exception to the rule! The hotel staff was helpful and friendly which was nice, but that could not make up for the room. My room was so moldy and musty I sneezed throughout the night and morning. The trash had not been emptied and I could hear everything in the halls and parking lot. I would not stay here again.
Still a great place to stay
This is our second time staying here and I was a little nervous to stay again after reading the recent reviews. No reason to worry-our stay was fantastic. Great rate, good breakfast, clean room and property, good location. This is the perfect place to stay in Palm Beach if you need a place to rest your head and get a head start on your day with the included continental breakfast. A public beach is across the street however you can't even get a glimpse of the ocean from this property. It is directly on the inter-coastal so you have great views of that though. If you are looking for a place that will be "entertaining" (i.e game room, evening entertainment or dining, kids activities) you will need to look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a clean affordable place near the beach, that has a pool, this was a perfect place to stay with 3 children ( 2 teens, and 1 toddler)
Nothing more than mediocre AND no management on duty
I would, for the money, stay elsewhere. The rooms were cramped and dark. The patio door had nothing on it to display it was a glass door and thus was easily walked into while closed in the poorly lit room (a BIG TIME safety hazard !!!) The hotel sits on a busy street. Yes, the beach is a 5 minute walk, however the "clientel" along the beach left a lot to be desired. Every guest that I observed at the front desk was complaining about some aspect of the hotel and wanted to speak with the manager (The manager was not due back to work until Monday. Keep in mind, this was a Saturday evening. Absolutely no excuse for a any hotel, especially a Marriott property to have NO MANAGER ON DUTY !!!) We hoofed it down to South Beach after one night and got a gorgeous room facing the ocean for $10 less !!! You can do much better than this place...
A big piece of a nice Vacation
I read some reviews here after I had already booked my room and I started getting nervous. It turned out to be a great room for the price. I have a very sensitive nose for smoke and I didn?t smell any bad air. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. These reviews might have sparked some changes there because there were a lot of painting, cleaning, and maintenance staff working on the grounds. However, they were very discrete and didn?t get in our way at all. I?m looking forward to the wireless Internet connection they advertised would be coming soon for my next vacation there.
Great hotel... I'll be staying here again
I am originally from West Palm and go back to visit family. My parents stayed here and recommended it to me. I thought it was a great hotel for the price. It was very close to the beach and had a great view.
(Since you have to pay for parking on the beach, I recommend you walk there from the hotel.) The room was nice and spacious. We had two TV's in our room (one in front of the bed and the other in a sitting area) and a balcony that we utilized. It was also within walking distance of John G's on the beach which is the best place in Palm Beach for breakfast. The pool was also nice and the view from there was pretty as well. I recommend this hotel. I'll be staying here from now on when I go back to visit.
Let me see. Overall appearance seemed run down. Somewhat disinterested staff. Nonsmoking room guaranteed but not provided. Backed up toilet took 4 hours to fix because "we forgot". Mediocre breakfast with green bananas and cramped quarters. Dreary halls. Would rather sleep on the beach next time. A far cry below Hampton Inn. Stay away.
Won't stay here again...
Stayed here for 3 nites in a suite overlooking pool and Intercoastal Waterway. Room itself was relatively clean; however, was supposed to be non-smoking yet reeked of smoke. Room was small also! Hallways had dank, musty smell to them, and the pool was borderline filthy-really disgusting. Breakfast provided with stay was nice, beach access fair (Cross AIA with light), and staff was pretty accommodating, but overall, I was disappointed with the upkeep of the facility. Would NOT stay here again as cleanliness is our highest priority.

... time with my family, but I'm feeling like Typhoid Mary. I've come down with some kind of cold/flu virus. So, I'm taking it easy and hoping to be better by the time I leave for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on Friday (2/6). Tomorrow, we have plans to visit with a cousin and aunt, from my dads side, whom I haven't seen in close to 40 years! I have to give Facebook the credit for getting us together. My cousin, ...
Today was our first day in Florida before the cruise. We stayed at the Sky Resort in Ft. Lauderdale. Went to the beach in the morning and then had some amazing Cuban food at Mario's Catalina. Thereafter we drove to pick up Aime ja Aino and drive to Boca Raton for the meeskoor concert. The concert was amazing and the whole church was ...
On Saturdays Jeremy takes Mikey and Coco to an indoor play centre so we decided to go along. Dad came with us and Mum and Katie went to the markets.
When we got to the centre we had a cookie beforehand (just to give us energy) and then we went in. Unfortunately we were too old and the lady wouldn't let us in. So, instead of that we went to a playground and ran around outside.
It was pretty ...
... the shade but those Freakin Florida ants kept swarming my legs and biting. I shouldn't complain, at least I didn't have to carry anything. I want to point put that 91 degrees here feels much hotter than 91 degrees anywhere else. As we we leaving JP had to get creative because we got locked into the complex by a chain and a padlock. $5. Nuff ...
... on the water, we were heading out to sea. I was a little dismayed when Capt. Charlie told us the main lines would be baited for dolphin, with only one or two rigged for sailfish. I planned the trip hoping conditions would be favorable, although I knew it was late in the season for sails. Charlie in his infinite wisdom knew we would have better luck with the mahi, and so he rigged his lines to give us the best chances for the day.
