“A surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

The last time my husband and I stand in Fresno we were not impressed but this time it was better. We spent one here in December. The reason?? To watch an ice hockey game.
The hotel is very simple but clean. It served its purpose as a one night stand.
The beds were comfortable, the spa was hot and the breakfast filled us up.
Yes the palce is a little dated but for the price and the free internet we cannot complain. The room was large enough for two adults and two teenage boys to put their four large bags and still have some room. It was quiet and the ice hockey was easy to get to. There is a Denny's nextdoor and MacDonald's over the road as well as a shopping mall.
I would stay here again and did not feel threatened by the neighbourhood.

If you have to go to Fresno, don't make it any worse; stay elsewhere. The neighborhood this hotel is in is incredibly sketchy and the rooms are dingy and terribly outdated. Additionally the room as not very clean and the furniture desperately needed replacement. The breakfast room was tiny and when we were there it was uncomfortably crowded, not to mention the food was not very good. It's only saving grace was the friendly staff and nice pool area however I definitely would not recommend staying here.

The hotel is located in the hood the rooms are out dated. The staff was nice but the hotel is n need of some serious updating to try and drown out the hood factor. Had to go 6 blocks just to get some aspirin. Because bw plus didn't have any. I made sure my doors where locked on my way.

We stayed for 2 nights to visit nearby national parks. Everything was fine, nothing to complain. Breakfast was served in the other building, it was clearly above average. They have free wifi, too.

I've stayed at a lot of cheap motels in California, I like a good cheap motel, but I won't stay here again: I've stayed at better motels for half the price. On a mid-November night, my room was quite cold, and had just one light counterpane on the bed (actually a duvet cover without a duvet). I asked for two more blankets and had to go to the front desk (2 buildings away) to get them myself. They were two of the mankiest old blankets I've ever seen off a homeless person. They were cheap old synthetic blankets, washed & dried until they were about the weight and texture of a stiff old bandaid. I've got the heater on and it's warming the room but smells like burning hair. I hope I'll be warm enough to sleep tonight. Plus it's on one of the ugliest corners in Fresno. You can do a lot better for the price.

Room Tip: When I asked for "your quietest room," the front desk clerk just laughed.

Several good things can be said about this property: the staff is very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast is varied and generous. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. But rooms are very small. The neighborhood isn't exactly the best in town (there's concertina wire across the wall that adjoins the nearby roadway!). And if it's raining--as is sometimes the case here--you will either walk in the rain to the building that houses your breakfast--or drive and find a parking space so far away that you might was well have walked to begin with. If you are in Fresno for just a night or two (as we were), this is an okay choice. Just make sure you don't pay an above average price for an "average" property.

Room Tip: Try to get your room in the main building where breakfast is served.

I used Tripadvisor to research another chain's hotels, and after reading the reviews, I was really stressed out about making a reservation in the Fresno area. I'm glad that I changed to Best Western and selected this hotel.

The property and room were in good, clean condition. The king bed was comfortable with 5 large fluffy pillows. The room was small - but we spent less than 12 hours there (most of it asleep) - so that wasn't a problem for us.

My husband prefers a heartier breakfast - so we opted for the Denny's near the front of the hotel - before we set off for Sequoia National Park.
