3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

You get what you pay for. Clean and comfortable. The air conditioner worked OK. It was close to where I was visiting and the price was right. Easy to get to freeway and in the center of Fresno down town area.

I walk into my room and it smelt really, sour. Not sure if you know what I mean but it wasn't good. The tv was really low quality for a hotel could of expected better. Our hotel didn't have a kitchen, so the coffee maker was in the bathroom. My blankets were very itchy and uncomfortable and had a yellow stain/tint on them (the blankets were white by the way). The lights were really dim. My experience overall was that I was not pleased with the quality.

I have stayed at many Americas Best Value Inn's across the nation and was very, very disappointed in this one. I was booked for 2 nights but after the 1st night that was it! After arguing with the desk clerk, whom finally called the manager I received a credit for the second night.
These are all the things wrong, very scratchy blanket on my bed, the mirror light was a small 10x10 box with a 20 or 30 watt bulb, not bright enough to see anything. Very little hot water both sink and shower. The 2 body towels were dirty (stained) and scratchy enough to take off your skin. I didn't use them.. The heater didn't work, the pool was under construction along with the sidewallk. The breakfast was a cup of coffee or cappuccino and a small danish roll. This motel is the worst that I have ever stayed at!! Do not stay there..

Room Tip: Do not stay there

I stayed here for 2 nights due to a court hearing. Court is only 1 1/2 blocks away, very convenient. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and helpful. WIFI worked well. Will stay there again when traveling through Fresno.

This motel was clean and the staff friendly. Within walking distance to the Convention Center, 5 blocks. Restaurant on site is a Subway which is not open on Sunday. Local fast foods, McDonalds, Carls only a few blocks away, also a clean and friendly Denny's. Staff suggested an Italian Restaurant near McD's, excellent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

After reading some poor reviews, we were somewhat reluctant to stay, but this was the only available place with two beds for one night during a busy weekend. We reserved two rooms. When we checked in, the first room (#106) must have been occupied by heavy smokers before it reeked of tobacco. The desk clerk switched us to another one without hesitation. The second room was OK.
Both room were clean and everything worked. Nothing fancy, but for $59 (plus tax), it was just fine. The place was quiet. I recommend it for budget travellers.
When my cell-phone ran our ot charge, the desk clerk gave me a charger and let me keep it. I appreciated it!

Room Tip: Stay away from #106, and ask for another room if yours smells of tobacco.
