My husband and I stayed here for a quick anniversary trip and enjoyed our stay. The room, a King, was very clean and was a great "home base" for our get away. We really like the location, very close to River park, where the restaurants and movie theater are located that we frequented. We would definitely recommend this hotel

Took a chance on this hotel but regret it. I had a group of rooms for a sport team and the reservation was messed up over and over. Every time a group member called, they couldn't find the group. I had to call several times to straighten out. Once here, my room was stinky. The air conditioner made it worse, could be a filter I am guessing. The mini fridge barely got cold. The breakfast was mediocre at best, but they did make sure it was stocked. The hotel is not well maintained, and the front desk didn't know how to manage reservations. A bit of an attitude too.

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Fresno (River Park) on 2 separate occasions. The property itself is excellent - well appointed, friendly atmosphere, good value. The Manager I had the pleasure of dealing with for both stays - Cheryl Wakefield - provided excellent service in a very professional yet personal manner. She was extremely helpful as I was trying to book rooms on somewhat short notice during a very busy period. It is because of Ms. Wakefield that I will choose this property again on my next trip to the Fresno area - and recommend it highly!

On our stay in Fresno, Cheryl Wakefield, went above and beyond normal customer service, she made sure we had reservations at other Holiday Inns in Northern California, and helped us serveral more times with information when we called her, she is why we will always stay at Holiday Inn's whenever we travel, she is an outstanding employee, make sure you keep her.

Room Tip: Always stay at Holiday Inn's

I recently took my high school track team to Clovis for the California State Championship Meet, and we stayed at the HIE Riverpark. I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. First of all, I unwittingly made reservations through a third party travel service, and was then told by the service that the types of rooms that I reserved a month earlier would not be available. In panic mode, I called the hotel directly, and the front desk manager Cheryl was happy to help me. She went out of her way to make sure that all in our were were set up with exactly the accomodations that we had requested. She truly went above and beyond on very short notice. The rest of the staff at the hotel werefriendly and eager to help, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the property is situated in a nice part of town with a huge mall and many dining options nearby. If you are traveling to Fresno, this is a great choice!

The hotel is located in a safe business area North of Fresno near Hwy 41. The lobby was clean and small. I arrived one hour before the check in time but they were able to give me a room right away. My room was clean. Room size was above average. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and large. My only complaint about the bathroom was the shower. The water pressure was low. Very hard to control the hot/cold water. When you finally get the right temp for the water it turns hot or cold when you are in the middle of your shower. The hotel has free breakfast, free parking and free internet. The breakfast was OK, but after 3 days of the same I walked across the parking lot to the IHOP. The River Park shopping is just 5 minutes by car. The south entrance to Yosemite National Park is about one hour. Overall, this hotel is one of the best 3* hotels in the area. I had several friends staying at the not too far Country Inn and I was very glad I made my reservation with the Holiday Inn,

Room Tip: As always, stay away from rooms near elevator, vending machine or facing busy Hwy 41.
