“Interesting Pool, Great Employees, Cool Older Hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Tony was friendly and kind and check in was quick. (I can never understand a long check in.) Got to the room and immediately it dawned on me that my window didn't open to the outdoors. (wasn't sure how I felt about that, but it was okay.)

The hotel is old, it reminds me of two buildings built side by side and then enclosed. In the enclosure is a very cool old pool. If you're saying in Fresno in the Winter and want to play in a pool, this is the place. Tropical plants. (which need to be dusted off)

Met Jim (Maintenance guy) working in the atrium (nice guy, very informative.) and later noticed him constantly doing something. The hotel seems well taken care of.

On a personal note... lately at home I've not been sleeping through the night, but at the Holiday Inn Fresno... I went to bed at 11, and woke at 7 ... completely slept through the night.

I wish a free breakfast was offered. (reason I'd choose another hotel) Although, if you need to be near the airport for an early flight, this would be a good choice.

I will say, I do find it odd not to have an elevator in the year 2013. The stairs are not many, but come on., it's 2013.

Than finally... Lauren at check out (by phone) was friendly and kind and said I was good to go. Wished me a good day and that was my stay at the Holiday Inn Fresno Airport.

Would I stay again? Sure offer me a good rate and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I booked on Hotwire and got a good rate. Tip to the hotel, OFFER the Hotwire rate to EVERYONE and...

Not a bad place to stay if you are passing through. The room was a touch shabby but we bid for it on line and got a good price. There is a restaurant on site which we ate at for dinner. We just had the salad bar and it was ho hum as salad bars go. They do serve a breakfast buffet (we did not have breakfast there though so I don't know how good it is).

I stayed at this hotel the night before a 6:00 AM East Coast flight. The desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet as within walking distance of the hotel. In fact I walked to the airport for my flight...about 200 yards away. A very nice situation for a 6:00 AM departure. The bar/restaurant service was average. There appeared somewhat of an attitude by the bartender, I would not bother to frequent the bar in the future.
In summary convenience, value and hotel amenities were positives. Restaurant/Bar staff left something to be desired but I can do without that aspect of their hotel services. I would definitely stay at this property again as circumstances require.

Stayed here with a large group of friends, and the hotel was awesome! Loved the old school scene the hotel had going. Nice little fitness room, pool was real awesome and a good breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

Our flight from Fresno to Vegas was cancelled and United put us up here. It's a 3 minute walk from the terminal, so no shuttle needed which is always a big plus in terms of saving time.
The staff were freindly and helpful, the room was good sized, spotless and bathroom more than adequate. To be honest, we were n't much looking forward to eating there but could n't be bothered to head off downtown. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal and the very pleasant service which we had in the nice bar area.Wake up call at 3.15am was spot on time. We did n't use the pool, but it's there if you want to.
So, if you are stuck, or even looking for a reasonable priced hotel in the area, we can recommend here!

The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The people in the adjoining room were very noisy both nights that we stayed during the evening, but quiet during the night. The front desk was very helpful and arranged for the hotel shuttle to pick us up from the hospital after we had to make an unexpected visit to the ER. The pool area is very nice. The meeting room we used for meals and a talk was nice. The food was good.
