The hotel was not far from good places to eat. Syaff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Only problem: I didn't realize how close we'd be to the freeway....a little noisy, but it was nothing my earplugs couldn't fix.

Horrible horrible experience!!! My girlfriend and I spent two nights at University Inn, everything looked promising until we had a complaint. Upon arrival our room was not even ready when we booked in advanced. The clerk offered us a room with two beds, a little unsure at first but we agreed. My girlfriend ended up asking if we could be...

NIce and clean with friendly staff but we needed internet badly and couldn't connect to any of the room internet services so had to sit at the reception to carry out these tasks. Continental style breakfast with cereal, Toast and Coffee

Very conveniently located, right across the street from Fresno State University. The front desk clerk in the evening and also in the morning were very friendly and helpful. The room was shabby. It lacked bed spreads, which I like to turn down so that I know the blankets are cleaner. They forgot shampoo for the bath and the tub was... More

I will probably stay here again because of the price and the cleanliness of the room. The rooms are spartan, but clean. The air conditioning works. My complaint was that I pulled in at 3:00 a.m. after a six hour drive. I was dead tired. The first words from the night clerk was that I'd have to wait until she... More

Clean decent large room and clean bathroom. Comfy kings sized bed. Pool was nice and clean had it all to ourselves, very quiet at night, staff was nice and helpful. Good location near restaurants and a starbucks and a new shopping center soon to open across from the Savemart center. Overall experience was great, I would definitely stay there again.

Clean bed and the shower had hot water. The rooms also has cableTV. good parking and OK breakfast (but poor selection). The Hotel was in a area that seems safe. The staff was so nice and friendly. For a motel, I would recommend it for a one night stay.

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
