“Getting worn down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The rooms and hotel are showing signs of their age. Carpets are worn, bathroom looks very dated. When we walked by the TV the TV cabinet doors would rattle. And I am a small person so floors must really be weak/thin? Hallways noise when people go by- talking and a ringing cell phone that we thought was on our room but was in the hallway- so walls are thin. TV reception was horrible. Screen was full of snow like it was in the 70's with rabbit ears. Internet was down for replacement? The air conditioner was set at 72 degrees and it ran almost all night long at a very LOUD noise level. Hard to sleep it was so LOUD.

I didn't expect much as it was a low price but it was even lower than my low espctations. It was ok for a short one night stay. It is very convenient to Highway 180 to Kings Canyon/Sequoias National Park which is why I stayed there

This hotel is listed as a 3*. It is a stretch to call it a 2*. The rooms are musty and dingy. It is in a shady neighborhood. My wife turned on the light at 3 am to scare away the noises she heard in the parking lot outside. The beds are hard and need replacing. There was also no hot water for the shower in the morning. NONE. We spoke to the front desk about it and were told that they'd get maintenance to look at it. WHEN - next week, next month - are we supposed to wait to take a shower until then... TERRIBLE hotel with TERRIBLE customer service.

Room Tip: The only tip I can give is AVOID this hotel at all cost.

Flew in on Sunday night for a Monday meeting. No shuttle in sight at the airport, so I opted for a cab. The hotel is clean but worn. That said, it's in much better shape than the Shaw Piccadilly location. All of the Fresno hotels I have stayed at are lacking in some way. So, for the location and price, I can't complain. Compared to the St. Regis I was at last night in Orange County, you could go on for days about this place. But, we're not in Orange County toto. It's Fresno.

Stayed here on a Saturday evening after attending a wedding in Fresno. Long line at the front desk for check-in. One person working, and she was juggling a lot, all at the same time. I really admired her calm demeanor, but it would have been a better experience for those of us standing in line if she had had some help. After waiting too long, check-in process was quick and easy. We had a pool view room on the ground floor, so access was very easy. The room itself was a little outdated, but generally clean. The only cleaning criticism I really have is that the a/c vent was covered with dust - I don't think it's been vacuumed in months. Bathroom was clean, and the TV worked fine. The noise from other rooms was a little excessive at times, especially from the room above us, but we learned to ignore it. The hotel was ok, as I said in the title.

Room Tip: First floor, pool rooms are great.

There's not a lot to recommend this hotel other than convenience to the airport. Public areas and guest rooms are worn (although clean) and in serious need of refurbishing. There is no guest elevator, so if you are carrying (lugging) a suitcase or are mobility-impaired, you'd better hope for a first-floor room with no one above you. As others have noted, you can forget the Internet - it is unbelievably slow, so if you need access, you'd definitely better stay somewhere else. It may be that business in general is slow in Fresno, but at the Piccadilly, it was essentially non-existent - the bar even closes between 2:00 and 5:00 PM, the restaurant was eerily empty, and there were almost no cars in the parking lot on a Monday night. It is literally about three minutes from hotel to airport terminal - sad that a place with so much potential misses the mark so widely.

I usually stay at one of the Carlson chain hotel first time since it was close to the airport and I was flying out early. Poor guest service looks nice on the outside and lobby area but rooms are not tastefully decorated. Front staff are not welcoming like other places I stay. I've been in Fresno 8 times already this year and first time and last at that hotel even though its close to the airport.

Previous review of "internet is as fast as a glacier" eloquently and accurately describes internet speed. They might as well advertise "no internet" on their website. Right across the street from the airport though so it's very convenient for flying in and out of FAT. Although again, that is of little use if you can't even check in for your flight with their snail-like internet speeds. Older hotel.
