As vacationers we stayed two nights at the Homewood Suites in Fresno and were very satisfied with the accommodations. The king suite was spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortably designed. I could definitely imagine that a traveling businessperson could stay for a while and feel at home. The layout gives the sensation of a well-designed studio apartment. People who wanted to avoid going out to eat would be able to prepare and serve a small meal. The refrigerator was full sized! For those wanting just about any kind of food, it is available just a short drive away in a shopping district. Unlike many places, Homewood Fresno does not pile on additional charges for services and amenities. The in-room wi-fi was free, easy to access, and high speed. The pool was a beautiful and a relaxing place. Very spa-like. There were accommodations for physical handicaps - even at the pool- that would make anyone feel well served. Everywhere we had the feeling that the management had thought long and hard about how to make every guest feel welcome. The breakfast was also free with a satisfactory range of cold and hot choices. I wished there had been more fresh fruit and just plain eggs. The woman desk manager was amazingly friendly, helpful, and professional. I've never seen better in many years of traveling. We highly recommend this for a short or even long term stay. It was the best place for the lowest price we stayed at on our Californian vacation. Note that its location halfway between the two fabulous national parks was perfect: LA to Sequoia, to Fresno, to Yosemite to Fresno for a second night, to LA. We recommend the trip and the Homewood. We can't understand why Americans aren't spending more time at these National Parks which are real treasures. We were surrounded mostly by lots of foreign tourists whose families were enjoying the magnificent beauty of the environment. Have Disney and Six Flags redefined vacation to the exclusion of the natural beauty? Or is it simply that American workers are given such ridiculously little vacation time that they cannot make parks a destination? Get away to camp, stay in a hotel, or day trip and enjoy these surprisingly wonderful places. You won't regret it!
