For no fault of its own, the Fairfield is surrounded by an area in steady decline. With each season, it seems like another business or restaurant surrounding it closes down. What once was a promising area for transit, it now seems to struggle mightily. That said, if you don't need to stop off at this exit, I recommend heading a little further South down to St. Lucie or head further East towards the Coast. Sadly, there just isn't much left here but a few fast food restaurants and truck stops.
I think this hotel though is solid though. You can beat its accessibility to the Florida Turnpike and I-95 both within a few minutes of the hotel. There is, as of this writing, a Red Lobster next door still in operation. Ubereats does have some delivery options as well to the hotel.
Upon check-in I was given my keys, but wasn't necessarily thanked for my Titanium Elite Bonvoy level. However, I was given the option to take bonus points or something from the market.
I got a second floor room suite. It was good. The room is clean, the TV's were old but had internet TV, but the bed was a little hard for my liking. The living area of the suite was decent along with the bathroom. You can hear hall traffic a bit. There is an outdoor pool/hot tub but I didn't make use of either.
For this area, you'll get a comfortable stay at a decent rate. It's a nice place for a stopover, but for an extended stay in the area look elsewhere.
