“Convenient and Immaculate.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My husband and I as well went for the mystery hotel at a very good price.
When we learned that is was the Piccadilly Hotel we were curious since it has recently been sold.
Since we always have early morning flights out od Fresno this was very easy to walk or take their shuttle available any time .
We had a room on the second floor with no elevator. No problem. We had nobody above us and
a lovely balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool. Our room was huge and had a new mattress, flat screen TV , fridge and coffee maker. The room was clean but dated and some of the outlets were very loose .
There is a full service restaurant and a great bar. Nice menu in the bar as well and great bartenders. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard. Very quiet and lovely balcony.

I booked this hotel on expedia.com. It was one of their "mystery hotels" where they offer a great rate but do not divulge the name of hotel until after you book. That can be scary but we just needed a one night stay close to the airport for an early morning flight. I took a chance on a room for $57 and was pleasantly surprised. I am picky about cleanliness...and will pick a place apart. Outside was clean, glass doors were sparkling, lobby was spacious and had nice furniture and everything was clean. So far, so good. Hallways were wide, but dark...I started getting worried...but, we opened Room 116 and all was well. Bathroom was cleaner than the Tenaya Lodge we had stayed in at Yosemite....and that is supposed to be a resort. Bed linens smelled fresh and bed was comfortable. Towels were not wafer thin and rough...average for the price we were paying. I saw a fitness room but did not use it. TV worked well, free internet and the AC worked well and hotel was quiet. We had a prompt free shuttle to the Fresno AIrport which is across the street from the hotel. Courteous and friendly staff.

So we took a quick weekend trip to Yosemite, which turn out to be pretty tiring. I book this through price lines bet, so I don't really know how much is the actual price. The check in was, ok I guess. Hotel does not have a elevator, so I suggest you guys get first floor. Ours was second floor, and the hall look dark (kind of creepy from horror movie.) The only new thing we say in the room were the TV, rest is kind of out of date. Clean, but not too clean. I just wish they have new carpet. Rest is ok. Reason I book this because there is no hilton, or hyatt near by, and I'm not driving 3 hours to go to Intercontinental San Francisco and 5 hours back to LA for 1 night trip.

Room Tip: Get first floor, so you can get to the pool from your room.

We live outside Fresno and had to be at the airport at 5am... rather than hassle with the early morning drive, we opted to stay at the Piccadilly Inn and get a good night's sleep. We were able to leave our car in their parking lot (no extra charge) while we were away and were able to make use of their shuttle back and forth to/from the airport. Our room was quiet, comfortable and we will stay again the next time we have an early flight!

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

Room Tip: Get inside courtyard view over looking green area

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.
