“GREAT HOTEL -- HOWEVER....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Nice, large quiet room, super towels. Breakfast selection went fast as several teen boys were eating alot. What was left of scramble eggs with ham were cold -- help was slow replenishing food.

During high checkout we should not have to ring a bell to contact clerk. A nice neighborhood, BUT beware of unsavory people hanging out watching people load up. In haste while loading, we left a black bag by our car. We went up to the room, and when we came back, the bag was gone -- personal papers lost. The clerk mentioned she had seen a fellow smoking she did not recognize walk by our car quickly. Too bad she did not scout him out earlier if she did not recognize him. MORE SECURITY IS NEEDED.

The room was updated and beautifully decorated. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. Lots of extras like a clean remote, nice tv, microwave and little fridge. The staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast was well stocked even toward the end of the breakfast time. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights while attending an event nearby. Room was newer, very clean. Hotel is set back from the road so quite quiet. Internet worked great. Breakfast standard "free" food and adequate.

Minor complaints: someone had unplugged frig so took me awhile to figure out why our food wasn't cooling. HVAC was quite loud so we warmed the room then turned it off overnight.

This hotel is very clean and the staff is cordial, helpful and professional. The location is convenient to freeways, the university, Fashion Fair Mall and many good food options. It was quiet and had good parking. The parking situaion may vary since they have construction crews staying there on the weekdays and from my experiences I know that can impact many things. I was there on the weekend and they were not there. I would definitely ask about that when you call to reserve a room. The morning comp breakfast was good and the food area clean and organized. The only reason I did not give it an excellent was that the fan in the bathroom did not work, the window would not open (both reported for maintenance) and it was a little pricey for the location even with a AAA discount.
I have not been to Fresno in many years and I was surprised how much it has changed. I did feel like it was a secure location and it had good lighting in the parking lot.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the front of the hotel and park in front.

I'm a Best Western regular so I experienced exactly what I expected from a best Western Plus property.

There's a few nice restaurants and shopping mall stores within close walking distance.

Not hard to find with somewhat limited parking (overflow parking for large vehicles is available in the adjacent dirt lot). Good prices for the area. The suite was very nice with couch & chair in one room and king bed in the other. Two nice tv's, a nice work area with good WiFi.

Standard breakfast offering. Good Coffee!
They earned my repeat business for sure.

Room Tip: For added elbow room, call ahead and reserve a suite, its totally worth the few extra bucks!
