“Great for Yosemite base.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Great hotel next to Yosemite freeway, with a gas station between it and the on ramp.
On Shaw street which has numerous dining options. Friendly check in staff. Would happily stay here again. Only slight negative was parking was a little tight.

I loved this Hotel, it was clean, modern and the rooms were very spacious with flat screen television, pillow top bed, lounge chair, desk and very nice and well done. Will stay here again when I am in Fresno.

Rarely have i ever said anything nice about fresno but I will say they have a nice Best Western! i have stayed at many best westerns but this one was definitely a "plus". The room was large, pleasingly painted, quiet, clean, nice TV and yes, unlike another review, there was an elevator and fridge. The location worked out for us as we needed to do some shopping and there were lots of stores nearby!

Room Tip: we were in a top corner room so that may have been why it was so quiet!

This motel really earns its "plus" moniker. Although a bit pricier than an average Best Western, the benefits outweigh the liabilities. The room and bed were very comfortable and nicely furnished, and the flat screen TV came with seventy-one channels including the Giants game; always a plus for a fan.

My only issue was a refrigerator that wasn't working, but after a call to the front desk, a friendly maintenance man arrived in less than 5 minutes and replaced the unit. The breakfast was better than average also, and even though the sign at the entrance to the dining area said that breakfast started at 6:30 it was actually stocked and open at 5:30, which was fortunate for me because that's when I had to leave for the day.

The refrigerator was very quiet, actually the broken one was even quieter, and the AC was also. I noticed that the parking area was patrolled by two uniformed guards who gave me the fish eye until they saw that I was a guest, which was comforting.

The management and staff at this motel make it their business to make your stay a pleasant one.

We stopped here between Sequoi NP and Yosemite and glad we did. We arrived late in the evening and the first thing the front desk said was our room was not available, but before we could say anything they said they were upgrading our room at no charge. I forgot the name of the room type, but it had a king size bed with a couch and was very nice and clean. My wife also liked the free cookies at the check in desk. We also went for a swim in the pool since we were not use to 90 degrees at almost 10pm. Pool was small but it was big enough since we were the only two in it. I would stay here again if I came back to the area.

Don't know if it's all refurbed but room 303 is lovely. Brand new everything - comfy bed, spotless bathroom, quiet air con, it was just perfect. Faces back of hotel so nice and quiet.
Room is large enough, with seating area, fridge and microwave tucked away. Perfect for our overnight stop on way to San Francisco.
It's ideal for visits to Yosemite, kings Canyon etc. too.

There's a pool which we didn't use and breakfast which as always we didn't try as its rarely any different.

Guy on reception was really nice and friendly and gave us a very warm welcome.
