“Cleanest facilities in Fresno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We took off after work on Thursday night for a getaway to SF from LA and Fresno was the perfect stop to divide the trip into two. From the start, Piccadilly Inn looked very cozy. It had little cottages on the side of the main lobby that differentiated it from the cookie cutter Extended Stay or Holiday Inn. The grounds were nicely manicured and the staff was super friendly! From calling ahead to using a highlighter on printed maps to guide us to our rooms, we felt VERY taken care of. They even had a huge water dispenser in the lobby with slices of cucumber and cups for us to refresh ourselves during the daytime! There is a pool for the children and huge meeting rooms able to accommodate up to 200 at a time! This is a place I would stay at again and again! MUST SEE!!!

We had a week-end men's retreat and had a great time. The check-in went smooth, the food was served on time, and as promised. The quantity & quality of food was superb. This was our tenth (10) consecutive year @ the Piccadilly, we have been treated special on every visit. The complete staff is courteous, friendly, knowledgeable & professional.

Room Tip: Just choose King or two Queens

This motel is adequate but not more. Our room was acceptably clean with nice furnishings and the beds were fine. All in all, the property seems a little dated although clearly an attempt to upgrade has been made. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant "Oliver's" which was surprisingly good. On the other hand, the breakfast was terrible. The eggs were not edible (tasted like they were powdered), the coffee was bad and it left us wishing we had gone elsewhere for breakfast, which is a shame since breakfast is served on a lovely patio surrounded by flowers. If they paid a little more attention to their breakfast it would be easier to give a higher rating.

The pool is nice and great for the kids with a large shallow shelf for the little ones to play on. There is a putting green that would be of no interest to anyone over about age 10. There were several tennis teams and at least one tour bus staying the night and I presume that most of their business comes from that kind of traveler. We stayed here because of its proximity to Forestierre Underground Gardens.

This property kept us within budget, and provided a clean room with reasonable amenities. We had small children in our party, and the pool and putting green were great for the kids. The pool has a large shelf which creates a shallow area where the kids can "swim" without being held above deeper water. The pillows were not very comfortable, but the room was updated and did have a small refrigerator. Breakfast was okay to tide us over, very basic with milk, cereal, waffles, eggs, and sausage, and wheat or white toast. Also, we arrived late with small children, and the service and food at Oliver's was very good, although we were the only patrons other than a few people at the bar. This was actually a big plus as we did not have to stress over over-tired children, and it allowed us to eat quickly and get everyone settled and to bed.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed well spaced and located; may want to request a top floor as we did hear people who...

The price for the room at Piccadilly Shaw is superb as they were very comfortable. It was wonderful having free wi-fi that worked without a lot of problem. The grounds were quiet and I could even open the window at night for fresh air. My next stay will be here at Piccadilly Inn.

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.

I have been coming to the Piccadilly once a year for decades with my family. We have our annual family reunion at the property. The pool area is spacious, the meeting rooms are comfortable and the staff is unbelievably accommodating. They have begun a much needed upgrade. The guest rooms are becoming more modern and I never want to get out of the new, super comfortable bed.

I recommend speaking with Brenda and Misty for a large group. Both ladies are fair, honest and extremely communicative.

This hotel is good for couples, business travel, groups and getaways.

Oliver's is a restaurant/bar right off of the lobby. The ambience in Oliver's and throughout the property is British old school. This is a 3 to 4 star hotel. The value is good for the rates I have seen.

Room Tip: This is a sprawling hotel with two main towers and surrounding guest rooms. Rooms along the main wal...
