This is a Clean hotel, we had a good night sleep, good food, my car was safe. Wish there was an extra blanket. We saw a comment that read “it was unsafe”, but since the rest of the comments were positive and it had so many reviews we decided to take a chance, it was worth it, over all a... More

This hotel has not been kept up. It is dirty and has not been maintained or updated. Oh, they have wall papered and painted here and there but you can't cover up this hotels problems. This is almost the worst hotel I've ever seen and I have traveled for business for over 15 years. Ok, there was one hotel that... More

This is a bare essentials hotel and is not upscale. The rooms are extremely large. The bathroom could definitely use an update. We got new wood floor rooms with USB charging stations, awesome! It was rough around the edges, but I felt it gave it character and the location is excellent. That being said, the hotel was relatively clean and... More

Aside from not having working heat in my room and it not being fixed after 14 hours I found myself looking over my shoulder as I walked to my room. After changing rooms my tub didn't drain and had no hot water. RUN AWAY.

Filthy...Filthy...Filthy!!! I don't mind older hotels, as long as they are clean and kept up. THIS PLACE IS FAR FROM CLEAN and IN... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was just right for us! The free hot breakfast was just Ok. You can't beat the price for the room. The hotel was exactly what we needed for our Yosemite trip. It is close enough to drive. There was a nice quiet swimming pool,... More

Spacious room with clean and comfortable beds. Hot breakfast with sausage, ham, and egg. We stayed at the University Square Hotel while on our visit to Fresno State University, located adjacent to the University campus. It was located next to Marie Callender's and Black Angus restaurants. The hotel was a basic, older style with European design. I would definitely say... More

We always like to look good in anything, but be warned and don't even consider booking at this dirty and unorganized and unhealthy hotel. We took our 90-year-old mother and was told she would have a handicap room a few doors for us and that we would definitely have a king size bed. He ended up at the end of... More
