We stopped here after our visit to San Francisco. We had known this place from a friend and he has highly recommended this place. He is absolutely correct. We were greeted by the owners warmly and were given a personal tour of the garden. There are so many citrus varieties that we have never heard of. The tree ripen fruits... More

The owners are very pricise and attentive. This is an excellent stop over. We drove into Yosemitie from here and took a two night stay over before driving back to San Fransisco. Just next to the underground garden, the hotel has a a good pool and hot tub, set in a welll cared for garden of fruit trees and roses.... More

I can't think of a lot to add that hasn't already been said but will try. Overall this is a somewhat unique, obviously family run property that gets you away from the cookie cutter chains, whether that is good or bad, you decide. I was greeted kindly at reception, which was efficient. We had to walk up the stairs to... More

The lady on reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean with a large spa bath and separate walk in shower. There was a good choice of food for breakfast including fresh fruit from their garden. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My daughter agreed to meet in Fresno for a last minutes girls weekend. Every hotel we stopped at was booked for a big Bike Rally. We stumbled into this quant and cozy Inn.

We enjoyed talking to the couple who run this inn. The rooms are clean if a bit dated. We arrived late at night after a long drive from Disneyland. What made our short stay so unique was talking to the couple the next morning about all of the interesting plants growing on the property- lots of citrus trees of various... More

The Garden Inn is not your run of the mill motel. The rooms all have patios and are tucked away surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens of flowers and fruit trees. The owners are delightful and happy to give you a garden tour and explain each plant if you're interested. The complimentary breakfast was extensive and the owner's wife, who mans... More

This hotel has easy access on and off Route 99. It's a little tucked away, but when you get to it the first thing you notice are the beautiful grounds. There are fruit trees, roses, manicured bushes, and flowers all over the grounds. The owners are extremely hospitable and friendly. My husband and I stayed one night and when we... More

I am very surprised by the reviews here and elsewhere with this hotel. My wife and I travel a lot and stay in relatively nice hotels (i.e., Hampton Inns, Embassy Suites, Marriotts, etc.), this was pretty well below those standards. First, the good. The owners seemed to be nice people. I had relatively little contact, but she seemed very friendly... More
