It surprises me, how someone can be made to look at the Cooling tower and other equipment outside the window of a starred hotel room. The room use to shake every now and then; maybe there was some train line or Airport in the vicinity. All of a sudden a very foul smell started emanating from the toilet and it... More

We had dinner here before going to the theater. Dining in downtown Fresno is very limited after dark, and the hotel is close to the theater. The restaurant was empty when we arrived - 6:15 - on a Friday evening. Pros: Food was good and fairly priced. The bread bowl was very good with fresh bread. Main courses were well... More

We were tired and running late, the check in was smooth and they kept the restaurant open especially for us to get a bite to eat. The room was comfortable and the parking underneath was convenient. Room service breakfast was good.

The staff is super friendly. Check in was great with Melissa. Room is good, average Holiday Inn room. Internet works great. My issue is that the outside (and open) parking garage has direct access to each floor in the hotel without having to go through the lobby. Added to that the area is terrible. My worry is that undesirable people... More

When renting a hotel room..you are paying the hotel to provide you with a clean safe comfortable room. Perhaps for a special occasion.? Well, first of all the location... In most cities you can go from a clean safe area, to a delapidated, unsafe area by just crossing the street. This Holiday Inn has the luxury of being surrounded on... More

Our stay was very nice,clean and quiet. The only thing that we had issues with was the air condition unit .. it was under construction. We were also referred by a hotel employee to try the restaurant and bar.. food was great and affordable.

A/C is non-exsistant. They did bring a fan fairly quickly. Got approached by homeless every time I walked out of the lobby door. Weird red stain on carpet by the bed. If it wasn't for a family wedding, I would never stay here.

Let's see... the air conditioning didn't work in multiple rooms for my group, including my own. They also assigned my room to not one, but TWO other people while I was staying in it.
