Just came up to Fresno to visit family over the Labor Day weekend and was excited to stay at the Picadilly Inn for Sunday night. I grew up in Fresno and at the time (I relocated 22 years ago) the Piccadilly was "The Place" to stay. Several of my friends even got married or had their receptions there. Sadly, despite being "renovated", the Piccadilly Inn is stuck in a time warp.
The room was large and clean but incredibly out dated with very thin wall. But even more annoying, is there is a motion activated light in the the entry as you walk into your room. WHY? This light comes on every time you walk to the bathroom or closet and also tuens on everytime someone walks down the hallway or thru the main door to the hallway!!!!!! SO incredibly annoying to have that damn light come on 9-12 times while trying to sleep. Again I ask , WHY???
Spent the previous night in Bakersfield at a Marriot Residence Inn for $25 less than the Piccadilly and the room was beautiful w/ kitchen, modern decor and a stellar complimentary breakfast. The Piccadilly complmentary breakfast was horrid, poor quality food and terrible coffee. Its shoved into the corner of the bar and was difficult to move around. We chose to leave and eat at Uncle Harrys Bagels ( which I highly recommend).
Overall I was saddened to see that the Piccadilly was stuck in the 80's. Its location and property has such tremendous potential to be a fabulous hotel if they would do a genuine overhaul of the place.
Will not being staying there again. Next time I will be stayong down the street a the Hilton Garden Suites Crossland Economy Studios.
