The Good
Guests were quite pleased with this hotel overall and they felt well accommodated. Many used the hotel to access the airport and as such their stays were short and sweet.

The rooms were comfortable and quiet. Guests described them as above average for a Fairfield Inn, spacious and clean. More than one guest recently commented on spotlessly clean bathrooms at the hotel. 

The staff were amenable. Guests reported easy early check ins and pleasant greetings from the staff and they were also described as professional, friendly and even exceptional.

The breakfast was satisfying. Guests enjoyed the selection and some commented on being pleased to find almond milk, a vegan option available.

The location was handy to the airport, only a 5-minute shuttle ride or drive. Guests found the shuttle driver helpful and efficient and the service reliable. Guests who travelled by VIA Rail found the location extremely convenient.

Guests enjoyed the restaurant on site. One recent guest conveyed the guest sentiment well, "Restaurant was perfect as well. They have a small menu but it's very nicely curated for a blend between bar food and light foodie. Service in restaurant was really good as well."

The Bad
There wasn't much negativity in recent reviews that were sourced for this review.

It was mentioned that the overflow parking lot for park and fly parking was not paved and somewhat rutted and muddy, but it was a fenced and secure area.

Some guests complained of hearing noise from the nearby train tracks and noisy AC units.

Some guests had difficulty accessing the hotel. Some blamed a lack of signage to direct you to the hotel and others blamed the ongoing construction in the area.
