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

To visit Sequoia and Kings Park we booked 2 nights in the Garden Inn. It is a small and great place to be, big rooms (we got an upgrade for a 2-room), pool and wirlpool. The garden had lots of trees with different fruits which were served next morning as breakfast. The owner were very friendly and helpful to us... More

We stayed one night here on our way to Yosemite based on prior Yelpers remarks. All the good remarks were true. The grounds were filled with fruit trees and blooming roses and other flowers. The Hostess was lovely and greeted us each time she passed by. The pool was clean and very comfortable. The room was lovely with a mini-fridge... More

We and our friend stayed at this nice place for one night. It was very beautiful with flowers and fruit trees. The grounds and the swimming pool water are clean. The room is large and quite. Next morning, we walked to visit the underground garden next street. There are Costco and other stores nearby. Fresno is close to three National... More

Very nice hotel. Perfect for your trips to seqouia or yosemite park. Very lovely owners, they care a lot. Breakfast is great! The hotel garden is very beautyful, so exotic. Very clean, comfy bed. Restaurants are nearby. Near highway, but very quite.

Definitely a unique spot in Fresno. Super clean, the jacuzzi is refreshing, which is why we took the King bed room that is about $50 more than the regular rooms. The place is clearly converted apartments, which makes them spacious, much more so than a chain hotel. The older man who was at reception we believe was the owner. The... More
