“Nice and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was super friendly and nice. Maybe the price could be a little lower, but for being across the street from the airport it's very convenient for a early moring flight.

The Piccadilly Inn Express is a no frills hotel next to the full service Piccadilly Inn near the Fresno Airport. It is simple and straight forward.

Recently remodeled, it is clean and comfortable. Not the most modern structure or latest style, but it has everything I need. New flat panel TV's. Very comfortable bed, good lighting, easy access, Shower stall, not a tub with a curtain. Good Wi-Fi, coffee in the rooms, and a breakfast buffet similar to the other mid priced Hampton/Holiday Inn Express places. Price is very reasonable. AAA even better. It also has a swimming pool for those hot summer Fresno days.

Seems to be a favorite with contractors. Lots of white trucks. Very friendly staff.

Good Morning Reviewer,

We appreciate the wonderful review you have left. We all try very hard to make our guests stay a wonderful experience. We have recently upgraded our breakfast, have heard lots of positive feed back on how everyone loves the new breakfast especially the waffles. They are a favorite of mine also.

We do have a few construction people here at this time, most of them have been here for a couple of months. We also offer long term rates for the traveling worker who may be on a long term assignment.

Thanks again,
Heather Melton

Wonderful service and clean facilities. The continental breakfast was a huge plus. We had stayed next door last year and paid more. This year we decided to try something new and it was incredible. Thanks for a delightful two nught stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are very close to the parking lot.

Although I'm pretty picky, having run a motel myself, I couldn't find very much wrong with the Piccadilly Express. Comfortably furnished, high ceilings on the second floor, and only about eight minutes away from Cal State Fresno, for a decent price. Why pay more?

Niggling complaints: no one was staffing the front desk when I arrived -- three minute wait -- and there's no bathtub, although there are two very comfortable shower heads in the walk-in shower. And some travelers might care that the TV does not offer movies on demand.

This hotel is conveniently located very close to Fresno International Airport. New ownership has updated the Lobby and many of the rooms and offers a good breakfast bar to get your day started. The staff is friendly and helpful.

It was the first time I had visited the US and the staff made me feel very welcome. They were polite, courteous and very helpful. The room was perfect, especially the huge bed and double shower. The room has everything I needed including microwave and fridge, and was cleaned and tidied every day. The breakfast bar was lovely, with a perfect range of breakfast foods. Overall, my stay was great. Very reasonably priced and I would certainly stay there again.
