Lovely rooms and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Totally comfortable beds and good location for freeway. Really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend this hotel. The girl behind reception was a lovely bubbly young woman who did a great job of making guests feel welcome. Room was spotless and a credit to the housekeeping dept.

Clean and comfortable rooms as well as a great location, with access to the freeway etc. The staff at the Ramada are friendly and eager to help with anything we send their way. We travel weekly for business and anytime we are in the Fresno area they are our hotel of choice.

Really wanted to like this motel, but they made if difficult. I stayed here two nights in late April with a sister while we were attending a family reunion/wedding in Fresno. Another family member had done a motel search for us, even visiting some of them in person. This was the best of the bunch and we were given a ‘special deal’ on the rate.
We did find the hotel staff to be warm and friendly, and seriously trying to be helpful. April was especially nice.
After a long hot drive, we arrived, checked in trying to hurry and shower in order to meet the family for dinner. We couldn’t get into the bathroom! It was full of furniture and the room smelt strongly of carpet cleaner. We raced back to the lobby, asking them to hurry and find us another room as we were already late. It took the girl at the desk forever to find us another room.
We finally got into the new room, to find it filled to the gills with unnecessary furniture. It was two queen sized beds – what we had asked for – but then it had a bunch of other STUFF. Wardrobe, desk and chair, table, a large TV stand, and a loveseat. There was no room for us and our luggage. The furniture was nice, just way too much of it.
The problems seemed to be that management is not paying attention. There were no clear signs on where and how to use the amenities that the motel is supposed to have. Never did find the pool – on the hottest weekend of the year. Gym equipment was not working. The AC cooled, but didn’t filter out the dust and pollens, so our allergies acted up the whole while we stayed here. The third floor hallway had a terrible odor. And the shower curtain was moldy. We had problems with each of the key cards and had to redo them, over and over!
This could be a nice motel; it’s in a very convenient location and has great staff. Someone is not paying attention to the big picture. And there are many other places to stay in Fresno.

The hotel was at a nice location, great parking, and a nice continental breakfast setup. The lady at the front desk that checked us in was a total sweetheart and continued to be very helpful throughout my stay there. My only complaint was that the pool was cold. My son wanted to swim and was able to for a very short period of time. The pool was very private, nice and small but since it was covered under the second floor, the sun was not able to help warm it up. Besides that great place!
