I checked in to the Red Roof Inn. The front desk clerk was a very cordial lady named Rene. The room was very comfortable. I do not understand the negative reviews. the property was kept up. From my understanding the hotel is under renovation. The staff were helpful. I needed some housekeeping and Teresa brought me extra towels. In the... More

Bedroom - the light in the corner had only one light bulb working, but flickering as though it was about to go out. The television had bad reception and shut off itself. When I turned it back...

The sheets had cigarette burn marks and several of the lightbulbs were burnt out. The neighborhood is sketchy and the security guard wears a flak jacket. To give you a sense of the place: there's a rotary phone in the bathroom. Need I say more?

Stinks like a Vegas hotel. Poor upkeep. Front desk clerk at check in was not helpful in directing us to our room. Sent us to the wrong building and wrong floor. Very uninformed staff. I will make sure to pass on this place the next time we are in Fresno.

In reference to the above review that claims the hotel is dirty and drug infested. Both claims are false. The new manager Eric along with ALL of his staff have turned tis place around. His front desk employees all are proactive in making sure only guests of the hotel are on property. Of course a group of drug addicts are... More

Had a group at this property scheduled for two nights. The first night they were traumatized and left. two rooms had things stolen from them (never recovered). There were drug addicts on the premise- there was a prostitute there and it's an all around unsafe place. Spoke with the general manager who was the most unprofessional person I've encountered in...
