“Great Value For Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here while we were in town for the George Strait concert. Our room was huge with a really comfy bed and pillows. The shower was fantastic. Found the staff to be lovely and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I found the hotel staff friendly; great amenities and breakfast. I especially liked the lounge and books and free daily newspaper. the room was large, clean and comfortable. There is a small exercise room. The only downside to the entire stay was a noisy refrigerator and TV remote that didn't work well.

Great shower. Staff very accommodating. The free breakfast was better than most places we have stayed. We had four rooms and everyone agreed that beds were extremely comfortable. Central location is convenient for our weekend.

We were in town on one of the busiest weekends. There was a huge cross country race and a Justin Bieber concert on the same day. Check in took a while with so many people but the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a Marie Calendars next door so dinner was fast. I wish I had known there was a 20% for hotel guests though. The free breakfast area was very crowded but there was plenty of food. The hot breakfast was a nice touch. The hotel is diagonally across the street from CSU Fresno. There was plenty of parking and a mall just down the street. It was a very convenient location.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor to reduce noise from above. Stay away from the stairwells on the...

The place is bad. It smells It has made my asthma flare up!!! They say they have pay preview movies, but not sure how they think that on a tube TV from tr 1970's!!! They have cable if 20 ish channels count???
The shower backs up with 3 inches of water , it takes multiple flushes.... This is the worst hotel ever. I say just be honest and charge the right amount per night and you would not get people mad, this room is worth $39 bucks at best!!!

Stayed here with a Priceline Bid.

The check in was effortless. The older gentleman at the desk was courteous, effefient and friendly. The lobby area and the breakfast area appeared well kept and clean.

Our room was on the first floor. The room was very spacious with a lot of room for our suitcases. The room had to queen sized beds which turned out to be condusive for a good night sleep. The bed linen looked pretty new and the pillows were plentiful.

The furniture and the tv were not new, but we expected that from some of the reviews, but everything was in good shape and worked. The first thing I checked was the cleanliness of the bathroom and everything was to my satisfation. The towels were large and fluffy and the water ran hot.

The hotel is far from the street so our room was very quiet. Maybe we were lucky that it was a Thursday night and the only group there was the regional chamber of commerce. No sports teams, which I suppose, considering the proximity to the university, might present a noise problem.

After a good nights sleep we went to the breakfast room at about 8. There was only one other person there and a lady was assigned to keep the food area clean and stocked. The area was spotless and cleaned the table of the man who finished eating immediately upon his departure.
The food selection was good. There were scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, and an assortment of bagels, sweet rolls, yogart, fruit, etc.

I would not hesitate to revisit if I ever stay in Fresno again.
