The hotel was pretty easy to find: just off the freeway, one block behind Herndon Ave.. We were checked-in by a very friendly staff and also received a room upgrade to a suite (as a Platinum member) - that's always highly appreciated. The king suite was very spacious, quiet and clean. The suite also included a fridge (which was pretty... More

We decided to stay in Fresno as the base for visting Yosemite National Park and chose this Holiday Inn after reviewing a number of Fresno options. It turned out to be a good choice that met our needs for a couple of nights stay. Upon arrival the check in process was quick and efficient. My status as a PriorityClub member... More

We had a couple of reasons for staying in Fresno, firstly it is a good geographic location after a day travelling through Yosemite, and secondly, in October the Big Fresno Fair is on. After reading numerous scary reviews of Downtown Fresno we decided to stay a few miles out and chose this H.I.E. Check in was quick and hassle free.... More

Recent stay at this facility. Staff are consistently kind and helpful. Would not hesitate to stay again. We especially like the Holiday Inn Express brand primarily because they have many new facilities. In fact, this hotel claims to be Fresno's newest hotel. I would suggest that this is not true. Beds were slightly worn. Walls in bath have multiple patches.... More

Our family (wife + 2 toddlers) arrived at the hotel around 10 pm after a long, tiring drive from LA.

Assistant Manager Patrick Mata deserves the initial appreciation for arranging superb accommodations and follow thru for 10 of my family members when they utilized the hotel's facilities the weekend of Dec 2nd to help celebrate our 92 year old Dad's BD. The staff are also to be congratulated for a job VERY well done. Thank you again.

Stayed here while visiting Seqouia and Kings Canyon National Parks. From the hotel, it's about a one-hour drive to the front gates of Kings Canyon via hwy 180.

As with most Holiday Inn Expresses that I've stayed at, this one was clean and comfortable, and the staff were helpful. The pool, which is a must for our family, was sparkling clean and seemed to have a lower chlorine content than many pools. However, it was a bit chilly. I'm guessing they don't heat the pool in the summer,... More
