Verified Reviews of Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Watervliet St. Joseph

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Horrible Stay"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The vents outside the room (in the hallways) had mold and so did the ceiling inside the room. There were random bugs in the bed and the TV would not work or shut off. The staff only kept saying we will let maintenance know. They did not seem upset or like the cared about hot our stay was. I will never stay here again.

"Multiple Disappointments and GRAVE ERRORS."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Fairfield Inn & Suites Watervliet St Joseph ? Dear Mr James Jameson, have several concerns and disappointments with Fairfield Inn & Suites, Watervliet. We stayed at this hotel from Saturday 7/24 and left on Tuesday 7/27/21. We were in room 205. POOL IS CLOSED BUT IT WAS NOT ADVERTISED AS SUCH. This was a major selling point for my wife and I to choose to stay at your hotel. I was really, really, really looking forward to swimming in your pool. When I checked in I was told the pool was closed. Anita Hadley, Assistant General Manager said “you should have checked the website” and “you can go elsewhere.” Rolund blamed the hotel booking website for being dishonest and not disclosing this. I was enormously disappointed that the pool was closed. ROOM SMELLED LIKE SMOKE/MILDEW. When we arrived, I exclaimed to my wife that the room smelled like smoke. I remember reading somewhere that there was a $250 charge PER OCCURRENCE for smoking in the room. I feared we would be charged as the room REALLY smelled like smoke, even though I imagine it was cleaned for our arrival. My wife said, “I don't think that's smoke smell, that is MILDEW.” MILDEW IN THE TUB IN TWO PLACES. There were two distinct areas of the tub with a black, fuzzy scum. I was really surprised! My wife is also allergic to mold/mildew so I was concerned for her health. I did tell this to Rolund and Assistant General Manager Anita Hadley. Our room was cleaned (once) but the black crud remained after cleaning. If I am able, I will try to send you the pictures I took of this. I did show Anita the pictures. I asked Roland and Anita if they would please look at this and they both refused. NO WAFFLES FOR BREAKFAST. This is a minor disappointment, but a disappointment and irritation just the same. It is advertised that there are waffles for breakfast. The morning rep said this is not true. The advertised waffles for breakfast is a LIE. IN ROOM PHONE DID NOT WORK. I spend about 20 minutes trying to get the in room phone to work. BIG waste of time on our VACATION! Firstly, the phone was unplugged. I plugged the jack into both portals in the wall but neither would make the phone work. I was able to get a strange noise when I hit “speaker” (and then the light would stay on) but I could never get a dial tone or get the front desk (I wanted the front desk to know about the mold.) What if we needed to call 911 in an emergency?? We would be completely out of luck if we didn't have cell phones. I think this is inexcusable. I told Roland and Anita about this and the phone was never repaired. I was told that this is NOT RIGHT, however there was NEVER A SOLUTION, even after the room was cleaned. I will send you a picture if I am able to. SUNDAY NIGHT UPON RETURNING AT THE END OF THE DAY, OUR DOOR WAS O P E N. My wife and I were STUNNED at this. We wondered if someone was in our room to possibly hurt us and also wondered if someone has stolen our things. It was REALLY SCARY. Upon leaving the room, EVERY TIME the door would slam shut and LOCK. I brought this up to Roland and Anita and expressed how scared we were that someone was in our room or someone had stolen our things. I checked under the bed and in the closet and in the shower but thankfully NO ONE WAS THERE. We didn't discover anything stolen to our knowledge but we did notice that the garbage was emptied. When I brought this up to Roland and Anita, they blamed us. They said WE left the door open. I brought up the fact that the door LOCKS EVERY TIME IT IS SHUT ON ITS OWN. I took a video of this and if I can I will send It to you. Also, we noticed several rooms with the door left open. We wondered if that is a house keeping thing, like leaving the door open to remind them to clean the room after guests left. I think that this is ABSOLUTELY INEXCUSABLE. We had quite a fright and didn't know if we would be hurt or not. There were some REALLY LOUD and curse filled neighbors in the room next to us so we didn't know if they would be waiting for us in the room with the door open as it was. NO ICE MACHINE ON THE 2ND OR 3RD FLOORS. This is just a minor irritation. HOWEVER the TV guide expressly says there are ice machines on every floor. This is a LIE. Anita said something about COVID or the ice machine was disconnected or something. There was only an ice machine on the first floor. Not a big deal but definitely FALSE ADVERTISING. ELEVATOR WOULDN'T STOP ON THE SECOND FLOOR. I think this was my second day at your hotel. A father and young son got in the elevator and pushed “3rd floor.” I pushed the 2nd floor button again and again (and hard) but the2ND FLOOR button would NOT light up nor would the elevator go to the 2nd floor. Again, a minor irritation—I took the stairs. HOWEVER, what if I was on crutches? Or in a wheelchair? A paraplegic? Roland said “we have had problems with that (left) elevator, we need to hire an elevator specialist to fix it. Anita said, “NO one has complained about this. You didn't push the button hard enough.” I noticed the NEXT MORNING I could NOT used the left elevator, someone was fixing it. So apparently I wasn't the only guest to have a problem, unlike what Anita told me? BEER CANS IN THE HALLWAY FOR TWO DAYS. This is minor, but there was a full case of empty beer cans littering the hallway for two days. Not very classy Fairfield! Unfortunately I deleted the picture I took of this so I don't have evidence. TOILET WOULDN'T FLUSH. Our toilet wouldn't flush on Sunday. I went to the front desk and asked if anyone could please look at this and fix it. I was told “NO ONE will be servicing your room. You have to ask the night before for someone to service your room or it won't be done.” Incredible! I am EXTREMELY disappointed in your hotel. I am also disappointed in Roland and Anita. When I spoke to Roland in person he did listen to me but told me, “You'll have to talk with Anita, the Assistant General Manager and you'll have to wait at least 30 minutes because she is NOT here.” I waited, then went downstairs again to speak to Anita. (Had to use my cell phone to call the hotel to see if she was there or not because again, our in room telephone did NOT work.) Anita did listen to me, but was argumentative and defensive about a couple of points and blamed us (“You left the door open.” And “You didn't push the elevator button hard enough. No ONE ELSE is reporting any elevator problem.” And “You should have checked the Fairfield Watervliet website.”) I calmly presented my concerns and thankfully Anita did listen. However, she said “I can't do anything about any of this. You have to speak to Jason Jameson about all of this.” One or two or maybe even three things I think I could accept and overlook and forgive. I am not usually a complaining person. But, these things are GRAVE errors and mistakes and oversights. Something really needs to be done about your hotel. I would not recommend it AT ALL. I would like some manager to reach me to talk about these concerns.
