35 Cowan Place, Guelph
The Fairfield Inn, is another great choice for value and my pick for car travellers to Guelph. This hotel is another gem in the city, about 11 minutes from downtown Guelph, with high ratings from guests and a lower price point, just slightly higher than the Comfort Inn, on the days I compared. Guests say that this is a relatively new hotel (opened Feb 2008) that is well laid out and modern. Guests highlighted the good value given by the hotel, the (free) breakfast for variety, and said the staff were very friendly and professional. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges and flat screen TVs, and guests can enjoy a drink at the hotel’s on-site lounge or take a dip in the indoor pool and hot tub. There’s a waterslide, that is open during specific times as well, for guests’ entertainment and fun. There is also a 24-hr fitness centre, so guests won't have to miss a workout, and a convenient 24-hr business centre on site. Parking is included in the room rate and guests will find dining options and the Stone Road Mall a short 6-minute drive from the hotel.
