Found myself in Fresno unexpectedly and it was getting late so had to find a place to just crash for the night. Looked around and prices were more than expected for the area. Didn't want to crash at the Motel 6 so I gave this place a shot. The outside, hallways and hallways are a bit dingy and dated. The... More

This hotel was recommended to me. I was in town on business for one night. After reading reviews, I was skeptical but hopeful. I should have listened to my years of travel experience.....Tips on this hotel are: 1. Do not look under the bed and you won't be grossed out. We did find an old sleeping bag along with unidentifiable... More

This was a one night stay between Long Beach and Yosemite. The rooms were large and clean with a spacious bathroom. (Check out the telephone in the bathroom!) We didn't have the opportunity to use the pool but it looked clean. We had a good night's sleep but someone arrived late at night and the noise from their entry did... More

This place was average. The continental breakfast was good. It was clean and worth the price. We were on our way back to Yosemite and Fresno was almost half way back to Los Angeles and this place was the most reasonably priced. Secure parking lot also.

It's ok hotel. Location is very good when it is just stop over. Rooms are clean and large. Staff is very friendly. The worst thing about this hotel is a breakfast, which is free but not tasty at all. The hotel have a swiimming pool and jacuzzi, nice and clean.

If you plan on sleeping, find a different hotel. Walls are paper thin and parties in rooms nearby until after midnight kept me and my family awake. Then, the staff started vacuuming the halls at 7:00 a.m. Really? My kids were spooked by the nasty stares from a woman behind the counter when we checked in. Thankfully, the manager helped... More

I have stayed here four times and it is consistently one of the best deals for minimal price from booking agency or by calling hotel direct. Right across from Cal State Fresno at Shaw and Cedar. Nice size room, good desk for business, free internet, comfy bed, great pool and jacuzzi in courtyard, helpful staff, full breakfast, all kinds of... More

The staff was very welcoming at checkin and breakfast. The hotels is located next to UC in Fresno. The rooms are a mix of newer and older items. The beds were aging as did the fittings of the bathroom. Air conditioning was getting loud. WiFi Internet works very well. We booked a last minute stay in this motel, yielding a... More

Arrived Friday evening and when I first went in to the lobby I noticed it was dark, gloomy and uninviting. The front desk agent who checked us in was not rude but not friendly either. Just gave us the room key and showed us how to get to our room. She gave us room 252 in the Victoria building. Walked... More

The lady in the front was quick to check us in, not overly friend but not rude. The front desk had a lobby area for the bar, breakfast, and had a printer and public microwave and is in a separate building from where our room was (we were in the Victoria Building) which was odd and a bit inconvenient (I...
