We stayed in this hotel on our way out of Yosemite park, and were really pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly, and the place is just gorgeous. When you walk in the lobby you feel a sense of calm as it definitely has some Feng-Shui decorating elements, and the classical music playing in the background enhances the atmosphere. You can tell a lot of love and hard work goes into this place. This is rare in today's world of major chain hotels. The pool is sparkling clean, the fruit trees are perfectly pruned with lots of fruit, and the entire place is spotless.
The check-in was quick, and even though we stayed during high tourist season (early August), we were upgraded to a suite for free! I was very thankful for this, because after staying in a one bedroom hotel for three days with family ... I was happy to have a door divider between the living room and bedroom :) The place was huge for the price we paid. It was very quiet, and I couldn't even tell we were right next to a freeway.
This hotel also had great amenities. There are some washers and dryers if you need to do laundry, free fresh breakfast, and of course the clean pool. Our suite had a huge kitchen, two TV's, microwave, and fridge.
The Underground Gardens are literally right next door, you just cross the street and your there. If your in town, you should definitely check out the Underground Gardens. The grafted fruit trees that grow up to seven different types of fruit on one tree are pretty amazing. The story behind the place is pretty cool as well.
All in all, this is a great value, and the owners are super friendly. If your ever in Fresno, I would highly suggest this beautiful place to stay.
