“Good for what it is; you'll pay for convenience, though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

After a flight misconnect, needed a hotel at/near the airport. Could have gotten something equally well-rated if I had gone back west on Shaw a few miles but was too tired. Decent, clean, helpful front desk staff. A little pricier than is justified.

One annoyance: the electrical outlet for the desk is behind the very heavy tv credenza/dresser. No way to get to an outlet near the desk.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay
with us here at The Piccadilly Inn Express. I am happy that we were
able to accommodate you with a hotel close to the airport, after you
missed your connecting flight. I am also happy to hear that you found
our rooms to be decent and clean and that our front desk staff was
helpful, we strive for great customer service. If you are ever in the
area again and need a place to stay we hope you will consider staying
with us again.
I am sorry to hear that you were not happy as to where the electrical
plug near the desk is located. All of our rooms have an added power
strip that is located under the desk. I will further advise
housekeeping to make sure the strip is not behind the furniture, but
under the desk, and easily accessible Thanks again for you review
and we hope to see you again next time you are in the Fresno area.

Heather Melton
Front Desk Agent,
Piccadilly Inn Express

The motel was satisfactory but the phone used to call the motel at the airport had the incorrect phone number plus the phone book did not have the right one either. The staff person at the motel said they had informed the airport about the change in phone number 6 months ago and the Fresno airport had not updated it.

The hotel is very close to the airport. The hotel provides taxi service to and from the airport. They provided a room close to the door and parking lot for my disabled wife. The bed was very comfortable. The morning buffett is very complete with fresh fruit, bagels, waffles, muffins, scones, cereal, juice and coffee.
The rates are great with no limit on the park and fly and the rate for a night after returning is a real bargain.
Friendly and helpful staff.

Large, clean rooms and friendly staff. Used their shuttle to get to Fresno airport. Sandwiches at the bar were very good. I thought the price for a king bed room was reasonable. WiFi was a little "spotty", however.

We had a 6:40 am flight out of Fresno, so we chose to stay the night before at this hotel. I wish we could have had more time there! Clean, comfortable, easy to get to. The microwave and small refrigerator were appreciated. The shower was wonderful -- really good size with two showerheads. We left too early for breakfast, and even the Grab 'n' Go option was not yet available for us. Too bad! That would have been handy to take to the airport at 5 am! The price of this Express was better than the Piccadilly Airport, which is right next door. This had all we needed! Staff was very nice.

Our leader decided last night that we should leave our June Lake lodging and get closer to the airport as all but one of our 13 meet up hikers were flying back to D.C. the following day. Heather tackled finding 7 rooms within our budget and allowed us to stagger in at different times. Her delightful humor added to the beautiful lodging. The rooms look exactly like the brochure and the beds are wonderful. And wait till you feel the incredible dual shower heads.

If you want a hotel close to the Fresno airport, you cannot get much closer than the Piccadilly. The hotel is under new ownership and has been nicely updated. Excellent quality for the price. Definitely a better value than the national chains.
