“I would stay here again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Stayed here for a night while attending graduation. I was very worried when I first saw it. This IS an older motel. Nothing fancy, and there is a liquor store right next door. But when I checked in the lady was very nice. We were able to check in at noon. The room was very large. We had 2 queens. The bathroom was pretty small. It had nice tv,micro, fridge, wifi. You can tell they have done alot of work. It looked very nice. There was a faint smell of something? But that went away. All and all for the price I would definitely stay again. And as for the neighborhood, most of it has been revitalized with alot of shopping. It is the Riverpark shopping area. Lots of restaurants!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The room was large. We originally got a queen bed. That was not a queen, so we got 2 queens however there was a $20. upcharge. Our room also had a strange smell. We never could identify what it was. It wasn't sewage, maybe mold? It never went away in 2 days even when we turned up the a/c. Sofa was nasty old with huge rip. No coffee, no breakfast. They did have frig & microwave. You just can't get away from this motel being from the 1940"s. It's just old.
The owners are working so hard to update. The outside landscape is beautiful as is the outside of the building. They were working on the pool when we were there.
It's just the room. Huge space at the bottom of the door. Bath window won't close proper or lock. There is a wood stick for security. I want to give them a rating of a 3, just because they are working so hard to improve it. The carpet was clean, beds ok, towels ok.

This was a pretty cheap room for one night enroute from Sequoia to Yosemite. Location for that is good but note this is on a very busy highway so it's pretty noisy if you're a light sleeper. Can't really comment much on other facilities, we arrived around 19:00, went out ate and got up and went by around 08:00. There's a bit of an odd smell in the room, not overpowering but...

Room Tip: As far away from the road as you possibly can.

My wife and I decided t take the twins on a long summer vacation. We started in Arizona, and worked our way back up until we got back to the bay. Being on a budget, we decided to stay at local properties and stay away from bigger name hotels. I guess the name says it all. The price was a lot cheaper than the surrounding hotels and the location was great. The pool was closed but the gentleman at the desk suggested boomers which was right across the street.

I recently stayed at Best Budget Inn in Fresno. The staff were so very friendly and helpful. Made us feel welcome and our needs were very important to them. They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and welcoming. I will always stay there when in Fresno. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in 40 as they still welcome smokers both times. Easy access from street and can park right...

This place is located in the heart of Fresno. I was traveling on a business trip and made a reservation at this place. When I arrived, the guy at the front desk was very friendly. The rooms are are small but with a very modern design (flat screens and all!). Overall, I had a great experience and would definitely stay there again.

This is an old style motel but the room we were in, No, 36, looks like it has just been remolded. We had a nice fridge and microwave. The owners were very friendly and helpful. You do get a little noise off the main street but we had no problems sleeping. We stayed here for 7 days and the price was very reasonable. We would consider coming here again.
