I can say this is hands down the best hotel in fresno. I've stayed in many other hotels around town and none compare to this one! Not only is this such a great hotel the service is awesome! They handle all your requests as soon as they can I've just never had a problem at any of my stays here... More

For years I have recommended this hotel to friends and family planning a visit. Not anymore! It is run down, has seady people coming and going day and night, the gates are not secure; people reach over and let themselves in. The front rooms on Shaw seem to house long term residents, over hotel guests, and have shredded curtains from... More

I should have known right away to get back in the car when I stepped out of it, and a roach scurried past my feet in the parking lot. But I was tired as it had taken me five hours to drive what would normally take three hours, from San Francisco to Fresno. It was 11pm and I just wanted... More

All is not what it seems on their site! Checked in late yesterday evening - dirtiest scuzziest carpet which looked to be last cleaned in about 1988. Stained everywhere. Peeling paint in bathroom. I didn't realize properties still had 13 inch televisions. AT A SUITE HOTEL??????? Two pillows charitably sized for a feeder airline with prop planes. Coffee maker and... More

If you can avoid this hotel, please do. This is the worse hotel experience that I have had in a long time. I made the mistake of cold booking it an hour before arrival after seeing some favorable reviews and reading the website that claimed it was in a premier shopping area of Fresno. Do to be mistaken, this is... More

We had a mixed experience here with the overall rating being mediocre to poor. The parking is good, some covered. The lady at the front desk was efficient and friendly. The first room we got, on the second floor, was terrible. The lights didn't work until the lamps were jiggled a little. They illuminated a dingy room with absolutely filthy,... More

We stayed in the San Joaquin many years ago when it was first converted from an apartment complex to a suite hotel. We loved it then when it was bustling with families and children in the pool, appetizers at 4:00, and a fantastic breakfast. We have seen it change hands over the years however, and now the direction is not... More

The grounds of the hotel are well kept and the hotel lobby looks good. The staff was friendly enough. Our room was located on the second floor and the bedroom looked out on the parking lot. Overall impression of the hotel was average, but the room decoration and cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Stains in the carpet and... More
