Maybe it's just that the rooms are old. Everything had a strange smell.even my aunties room. When we turned on the air the smell became worst. On a secondnote here's some Advice: don't let employees stand outside the doors of the hotel smoking. Not everyone wants to smell it!

I thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately from time to time, we can have guests that smoke in non smoking rooms leaving an unpleasant odor for most of our guests. When a front desk staff is informed of the situation, we will usually switch you to a room of your liking so that we may treat the problem room. It... More

This place is the worst. Not only because the door for our room was broken, not because the breakfast is awful, cheap cereal in plastic bowls, but because during the evenings drug dealers can be seen in the parking lot going about their business freely. My girlfriend was quite scared.

Thank you for taking your time to write a review. We are a 24 hour facility that is located across the street from a concert venue and Fresno State University. Due to this, it is bound to have people and students roam around the property at different times. It would be unfair to say these people are drug dealers specially... More

Was not too far from the campus. I thought the continental breakfast was great! The rooms were clean and the staff were great! I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night only and the place is average to say the least. Pretty run down and would really benefit from a major makeover. Close to many restaurants and conveniences. Had dinner in the hotel bar and it was ok. The staff in the bar were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was free but not a lot of choice.

Was not sure what to expect after reading several reviews here, but took a chance and made a reservation for the University Inn because it is right across the street from the University of Fresno and an easy walk to the graduation ceremonies going on there. I was very pleased to find my room was clean, comfortable, and I got... More

To our dismay, the room was not serviced. I called the front desk and inquired about the situation and the night manager said "Sorry, we had a lot of rooms to clean."

Thank you for your review. Cleaning a room on a guest staying-over is a standard hotel practice. For the guests privacy, do not disturb signs are available for you to hang in the door. This means the hotel maid will not clean your room as per your request. Our hotel carries a full housekeeping staff to cover all rooms as... More

Several members of my family and I stayed over the weekend. It was rowdy, loud and not at all conducive to a good night's sleep. Then, during our last night, the toilet failed. The night manager was completely unhelpful and we had to dress and walk to the front desk to get a plunger. We were told that nothing could... More

The hotel seemd ok, but both my husband and I started to have trouble breathing and our chests hurt after we had been in our room for several hours. After we went out for several hours we felt better, but the after staying overnight we felt sick again. We were all better about 4 hours after we checked out.

There is not much to say, I stayed here for one night, arrived late and the staff was very nice. The room was ok and clean, no blood or urine stains as others mentioned before. Old and worn, yes, but I was more worried about the people who stayed there. Some were screaming all night, security came and everything went... More
