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

This place bills itself as a Boutique Hotel--it is just an ordinary, not very well run hotel. The person on the desk didn't give us any information and then when we were in our room (adequate) we tried to call the desk and the attendant didn't answer would be gone for 10 to 15 minutes at a time so one...

I reserved a standard room with a pull out sofa only to find out my reservation was cancelled. Luckily they were able to find a room for us we just had to wait a have hour for it to be cleaned. This was after I called twice to confirm. My three children loved the pool and Jacuzzi even though the... More

What a shock to see beautiful grounds and then walk into a rundown room and the love seat was not only dirty, but was so broken down. A room was originally requested for a room with a walk out balcony which was confirmed, but upon arriving it was given out to someone else. In the past I recommended this room... More
