Stayed here one night, several prostitutes working out of the hotel, noisey all through the night, a group of thuggish looking individuals all partying out of one room in between going back and forth to the prostitutes rooms so I'm guessing they were a bunch of pimps or something. Then to top it off the weekend staff were extremely rude... More

I stayed at this hotel for a women's group weekend in Fresno. At first the hotel seemed fine. The room was outdated, the bed was terribly hard, and only a bar of soap is provided for guests. Fine. The pool looked nice and clean (I did not use it). Whatever, it was $60 per night, I'm not complaining about this.... More

We were in town for a football game and wanted something close enough that we could walk to the stadium. The rooms were clean, the air conditioning really worked well. But it was a very basic room. The beds were a tad on the firm side and as far as amenities go, we had a bar of soap. That said,... More

We got a Disabled Room at my request and it fit the bill. I asked for a refrig.and one was supplied and it worked fine. The breakfast was simple (Cereal, Muffins and Toast. Coffee,Tea and Juices) Beds were firm but we slept. To me the VERY BEST part was I was able to get in and out of the pool... More

We stayed here to attend a concert at SaveMart center. Perfect location for that! It was great to be able to walk across the street to venue, and not have to deal with traffic after the concert. However... the room was kind of skeevy. Carpet seemed dirty, and worse, the bathroom was dirty. I wiped out the tub myself, with... More

Like many hotels nowadays, it shows its age but the owners are staying on top of it. The room was clean; bed comfy; bathroom decent. AC and heater worked well. There wasn't a fridge or micro in the room but I don't believe hubby requested one. We were just overnighting it anyway. Fantastic pool. It was 90+ degrees when we... More

For one night it's okay. The room was clean, a little bit old fashioned and the smell wasn't quite nice, but nothing really bad. The staff was very friendly. The location is close to restaurants and supermarket (Main Street). Also you get a 10% off when eating at the brew house (2 miles away). All in all for one night... More

I booked a room for 4 nights, with two queen beds. As I was traveling with pets, I was unaware of the pet policy other than they were accepted. I did not know that the pets weight combined could not exceed 65 pounds and that it would also cost 20.00 more, per pet, for a room until I arrived at... More

Thank you for the review. I use every review to make sure I correct potential problems. I'm sorry you had a tough time locating our pet policy in our website. All major booking engines have our hotel listed as a pet friendly hotel and asks the traveller to contact the hotel for specific pet policies. As a pet owner, I... More
