“Unexpected luxury for last-minute overnight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

What a treat! From Randy at the front desk, to the quiet little pool area, the nearby residential neighborhoods, and the easy drive to Trader Joe's, we were delighted to crash here when we had to stay in Fresno unexpectedly one night due to extended business in the area. We were on the first floor, so carting in our luggage was easy. Loved the 1-piece black out curtain on the window as I am sensitive to light while sleeping. The sofa in the room was a plus as we got in early & had time to lounge about. We would recommend this spot & stay here again anytime we need a room in Fresno.

After a long day's travel and some difficulty finding the hotel (E Shaw vs Shaw) thanks to the GPS, I can say it was a pleasant stay. The area is quite busy being near a shopping mall but the bustle did not carry over into the hotel. The building is ordinary with lots of parking. The clean lobby was on the small size with a seating space and area with computers and printer. Check in was slow but without problems. Had a room on second at end of hall so was quiet.
The room was a good size though of odd design with bathroom (toilet and shower) separated from the sink near the entrance. The microwave and minifridge were basically beside the sink making it somewhat crowded. They were functional though along with the flatcreen tv (no HD), thermostated climate control (not too noisy) and WiFi. The bed was comfortable, clean and a good sleep was had.
The breakfast area was a little cramped with typical selections. Check out was a little slow but without issue. All in all to be recommended and would go back next time I'm in the area.

I had never been to Fresno before and needed to a place to stay while a new transmission was being installed in my car which had broken down on I-5 . Neighborhoods in Fresno can be dicey. Since I was alone I wanted a place where I would feel safe.The property is quiet and I felt perfectly safe on the 3rd floor. The hotel has been recently renovated. It was over 100 outside and the AC worked well. I had a room with a queen bed. The room was fine for me, but it would have been pretty cozy for 2 people. My only gripe is with a previous guest of the room (see photo). WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? Scratching anything in a public space is rude, tacky and is like a dog peeing on a tree. Citizens of the world, when you travel, PLEASE take only photos and leave only foot prints.

The rooms are spacious and have plush beds. The hot breakfast was great and had a good selection of juices and coffee. The hotel is centrally located on a major road and easy to get to where I need to go. If you get lost, it's easy to find your way back. 3 minutes off the freeway. I will def. stay here again.

Loved the location. Other than the warning of the Call Girls walking the street outside of the hotel the location was great. close to alot of restuarants and shopping. Good breakfast overall would definitely stay again.

We stayed here on our way to Yosemite which is about 2 hours away. The place had decent amenities and we got a restful night sleep. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The full breakfast was nice which included a waffle maker. This was a great value for what we got. It's also located close to the mall which includes high end restaurants and shopping. Would stay again if I'm in Fresno.

Rooms are updated, very inviting and cheerful. Conveniently located. Hotel staff especially Alicia Vasquez was very helpful. Her customer service was impressive, we were 3 guests checking out at the same time but she paid attention to all of us and took great care of all of us. Will stay again if in Fresno area again.
