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...

Wish our travel plans kept us in town one more night. We stayed in the Pebble Beach Quarters. The room was incredibly spacious, clean & quiet. Huge comfy bed & what we loved most was the layout. We faced away from the sun and the curtains kept any hint of daylight out. This made for a very relaxed nights sleep.... More

I met one of the owners, Boc (not sure of the spelling of his name). He was very appreciative of our business. Upon check in, there was a small misunderstanding which was quickly resolved. I know that there has been some renovation done to the property, three of us out of group were unhappy with the cleanliness of our room.... More

Stayed here for one night, as a stop off point during our trip from SanFran to Vegas. Clean, tidy and a good nights sleep. Good size rooms, and good value for money. The free breakfast is continental and plentiful. We would stay again.

We had just entered the room and my daughter was sleeping, I pull back the top knitted sheet and there was dried ketchup all over it. I immediately called the front desk and they came up with fresh sheets...but that makes me wonder..you know? how many times they have not washed the top knitted sheet between guests? They apologized.

The first night, at 70% occupancy, it was fine. Adequate for the cost. The 2nd and 3rd nights, when full, we had no hot water for showering in the morning. After the first morning of cold, we thought it might be fixed. After the 2nd morning of cold, we checked-out, and the clerk said she would make a note of... More
