Used this hotel as a stop off before going onto yosemite. Very friendly welcome and an upgrade due to status in reward programme. Room was fine with very good wifi. Receptionist was very friendly and gave us information on where to go for dinner. Breakfast next morning was fine and set us up for the rest of the day

Thank you very much for this wonderful and candid review! We do appreciate you stopping in before heading up to Yosemite. We're conveniently located behind the 41 North HWY that zips you right into the park. Also, we're happy to hear you enjoyed the check in service along with the free breakfast. Upgrades are one of the benefits you'll receive...

My husband and I were in Yosmite with friends over the New Years' holiday when we were forced to leave the area due to a medical emergency. My husband was diagnosed with pneumonia at St. Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, was admitted, and stayed for 5 days. I checked into the Holiday Inn Express, less than 2 miles from the...

Was just there last week and found it a little disappointing. Our room was different from the last time we were there and when we asked about it at the front desk they said we must have had a suite before even though I know we never had asked for one. The bath tub looked like a wading pool as...

Rooms are spacious and clean and so are the bathrooms. We were a bit worried about the noise of the freeway since it's very close but it wasn't too bad. Service was quick and friendly for us. Our biggest beef was with the beds, soft mattress, both of us woke up sore.

Business trip to Fresno. This is basically in the best part of town, anything near River Park. However, don't expect much. The lobby area is small, unimpressive, and for the most part, vacant. Guests piled up before the front desk staff showed up to check us in at 5pm. Coffee located in the lobby was sitting there for 5 hours,...

The hotel is close to the freeway but yet the rooms were quiet. They had friendly and helpful staff to help us quickly check in and out. Our room was a nice and clean with comfortable beds. Their hot breakfast had a good variety that adults and kids enjoyed. We will definitely stay here again next time we're in town.
