Everything here is by the book: simple room, complimentary breakfast, mini-fridge, free wifi, and so on. There's only one thing that really matters at the Fairfield Inn: First, it's located on University Drive, so it's a straight shot to downtown Tempe. (It's also an easy ride back, whether you decide to drive or taxi). Second, it's a very quick drive to the airport. There's really not much else to say about the Fairfield Inn, except that it's comfortable and barely stands out from comparable hotels nearby; you could spin a roulette wheel and decide whether you want to stay here or at a hotel down the street. The functionality feels a little austere, the modernist decor a little forced; even the un-shaded pool feels more like a requirement than an amenity, surrounded as it is by a barren parking lot. But the service is friendly and you won't find you're missing anything – unless you're looking for a nightcap, in which case you'll probably have to drive along this blasé little strip until you find something more urbane.

This is a very basic hotel that's near the airport and has a good room rate. I really liked the small amenities here. Breakfast is included, there's free coffee 24/7, a small fitness center and a pool. A 24-hour shuttle will take you to and from the airport. I really liked the big beds in all the rooms. Only the rooms with King beds or nicer come with microwaves, but there's one in the lobby guests can use. This hotel also only has showers, no tubs.

If you need a budget stay close to the airport (or you want to stay near Tempe/Arizona State University), and you don't want to stay at a mega-hotel with hundreds of rooms, check out the Fairfield Inn Phoenix Airport. It's a smaller hotel (well, smaller than some of the neighboring hotels) with a nice, clean slightly retro-design. The rooms are small but well-designed. They king rooms have a big bed, work station, and spacious bathrooms, all in a relatively small space. Still, they don't feel cramped - just well-designed. The small lobby is where you can refill your coffee cup and their's a modestly-sized dining area where they serve a hot breakfast every morning (there's waffles, fresh fruit and sausage, I was told). Although there's not much shopping or restaurants around here, I like that University (the street where the hotel is located) is pretty quiet once the afternoon rush hour is over and it's easy to drive into Tempe.

First to Review

The Fairfield Inn Phoenix Airport, as its name implies, is just minutes away from Sky Harbor, and located along a row of hotels which cater to the jetsetter. It’s neighbors with another Marriot Brand, a Courtyard, which doesn’t offer the same complimentary hot breakfast and charges for WiFi (the gall). The Fairfield has been recently renovated (within the past 3 months, at the time of writing) in a sort of retro-meets-modern style. Think “Mad Men:” its lobby features a large crescent-moon shaped couch and simple white and chrome lighting fixtures. The rooms are spacious, and in addition to the beds, offer a miniature refrigerator, coffee/tea maker and HD television, which is fitted with adapters so you can hook up your laptop or game console to the big screen, which is nice. I didn't get a chance to look at a suite, but those come with an additional living area (and television), so if you’re coming with family you won’t have to fight over the remote.
