We stayed in Fresno en route to Yosemite National Park, in order to break up the journey.
It is worth pointing out that this motel is a bit out of the way in the outskirts of the city. Coupled with Fresno's confusing road system and the inaccuracy of all the maps available online, it was very difficult to find. When asking for directions, we were directed (several times) to the similarly named Holiday inn motel that is on the other side of town.
The motel is pretty much in the middle of nowhere at the side of a freight railway line, which is really noisy. It's a shame because it lets the motel down and i'm sure they'd have more business if it was in a better area.
When we eventually found the motel, we were very pleasantly surprised. It's on a pretty little complex which is well maintained and looked after. The staff were pleasant and a complimentary breakfast of reasonable quality is provided.
The room was quite nice with a double bed and the usual amenities such as a TV. We had a fridge in our room too and found this to be handy. The air conditioning was excellent. Considering the outside temperature was around 90 degrees farenheit, this was a welcome relief.
Overall, if you can actually find the motel, i'd definitely recommend it. For the price it was a lot better than some of the other motels we stayed in while travelling around California.
