“Good overall choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Overall a nice property. Much better value than some down the street. Simple rooms but had all the standard amenities including continental breakfast. Extra pillows and towels were brought to us within minutes. We will return on a future visit to Fresno.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

This motel is several steps above motel 6 . It is clean and well maintained. When I first checked in, the TV didn't work, so they moved me to another room, no problem. They have everything I'd expect from decent flop. Mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, blow dryer, etc. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is fine. The shower has decent water pressure. All in all, for the money, a nice room. The Continental breakfast was minimal, but acceptable. The staff was very nice. Bottom line is, if I'm on a budget and in Fresno, this is where I'm staying.

Room Tip: As alway, bring a soft towel and ear plugs.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stayed here after reading a couple of reviews and we had a coupon. For $67 a night, it was great value. Not a fantastic location for shops restaurants etc, lots of businesses like tyres, sporting goods, motorcycle shops etc. The room wasn't huge, but it was clean and the bathroom was too. There was a weird smell, as mentioned in another review. I think they may have overdone it with some sort of air freshener.
Complimentary breakfast was basic but good, enough to get you ready for the day. The breakfast room itself was small but clean.
Overall, great value.

My new place when I visit Fresno. The Summerfield inn is an older, but a renovated and very well maintained property. Its an exterior hotel where I can park right in front of my room which I absolutely love. The room was clean and had all the basic amenities a business traveler would need on the go. Continental breakfast was actually much better compared to others. Overall a great place for the price.

I stayed at this place on February 1st for one night. The first thing I noticed when I walked into the room was an odor. It smelled like possibly an air freshner was used in the room. It wasn't a bad smell but annoying none the less. I opened the window for a half an hour and the odor did not go away. Since I was in Fresno for a concert, I did not use the room too much before the concert. The electric out let by the sink was not flush with the wall. What appeared to be a phone jack in the bathroom was warped. The top part of the front door lock (the one that swings over the ball attached to the door and has the long hole in it) was loose. There was no real closet space but does have an iron and ironing board. There are no towel racks.But what really forced me to give this place a low rating was when I used the toilet (after the concert) there was a band-aid floating in the toilet bowl and what looked like scum in the toilet bowl. Possibly soap film or cleaner film? Also when I used the toilet it did not flush. I took off the top of the tank and discovered that the bead chain that attaches to the handle for the plunger in the tank was not attached. I fixed this myself. The bathroom also did not have any face towels, only shower towels and washcloths. The toilet seat was loose. The iron also still had water in it. It appeared that the odor did disapate after I flushed the toilet, so it may have been the product used in the toilet bowl.

We were traveling to Yosemite the following day and stopped here the night before. The staff was very friendly and the place was clean and comfortable. All the basic amenities were provided and everything was quiet and peaceful. The continental breakfast was a little sparse but the great nights stay more than made up for it

This was a great little place. Although its on a busy street it is a courtyard style all one level which makes getting luggage in very easy the rooms were very clean although a little run down. It is also centrally located to lots of restaurants and shopping. The staff was extremely nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel great for the price.
