First review
The Fairfield Inn Lumberton is an economy style hotel located on a service road next to Interstate 95. The hotel opened in 1994 and has 3 floors and 103 rooms. In addition to the basic rooms, there are executive king rooms which have more square footage and a kitchen area. All the rooms include a microwave and refrigerator. The hotel is nonsmoking and does not accept pets. Rates for a basic room range from $80-130.

Amenities are limited here. The outdoor pool is fairly large but is not heated. The hotel also has a small workout room and a guest computer. A free hot breakfast is offered in the mornings. Nearby restaurants include a Cracker Barrel and a Chinese place. There are additional fast food restaurants on the other side of the highway, but they would entail a drive rather than a walk.

Lumberton is not exactly a world class lodging scene, and given the alternatives, the Fairfield Inn was about the best thing going late on a Friday night. The Olympics were taking place at the time, and this was evident by a blaring TV in the lobby that the front desk clerk was watching to the detriment of her initial customer service. She assigned a connecting room despite a clear and unambiguous request for a regular one. So, after a trip back to the lobby, she provided a new room which was also further away from the noisy highway. Dealing with a potent flu at the time was not conducive to a pleasant stay, but one can still strive for objectivity. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the heater and bathroom equipment worked properly. The shower though was excessively narrow and had this annoying handrail that made it narrower still. There was not enough time to try out the breakfast in the morning, but it seemed popular with the other guests. It's understood that when you pay for beer you should not expect champagne, and for an $80 rate the Fairfield Inn provided a decent lodging experience. This hotel can work when it's late and you need a place to crash near the highway when on a long road trip, but don't expect a glass of champagne when you arrive.
