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.

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...
