We stayed here to visit Sequoia National and were perfectly happy. The furniture in the rooms might be a bit outdated but it is very clean and the bed was very comfy. Highlights are the garden, the nice owners and the breakfast with fresh waffles and fruits from the garden. Delicious!

We stayed for two nights prior to going to Yosemite to camp. Visted Kings Canyon on one of the days. Facility is somewhat dated, being built in the 1980's, but the rooms are well kept and clean, though not fancy. The grounds are especially charming. Very sufficient for an overnight stay, considering the price. Proprieters are very enjoyable and their... More

Took my wife to Garden Inn we stayed one night. This Inn has a friendly staff with a very beautiful outside garden. It is full of rose bushes and trees. The only problem we had was with the key to the room. The desk clerk was very nice she went with us to open the room. I ordered roses for... More

The owners are great! They picked fresh fruit off of their trees to give us for our trip. The place was a little hard to find, but with GPS we got there and enjoyed our stay. We were heading to Sequoia National Park and we would stay here again en route.

I am very pleased to write this review for The Garden Inn and Suites in Fresno. We usually stay at the Ramada Inn accross the street, but we wanted to try something different. Going on a recommendation from a family member - I booked one night. When we arrived I was greeted by the most friendly and organized woman. I... More

It is not what the rating says. Built in the 80's more or less. Really shabby. I think I stayed in this same hotel back in the late 80s when it was new, but didn't realize it until I walked in to my room and saw the old old furniture. The garden is nice though.

The Garden Inn is close to the freeway, but is very quiet and peaceful with beautiful gardens all about. The owners take pride in maintaining the gardens and numerous types of citrus trees in them. The owner even likes to give personal tours!

This is a unique motel with some wonderful characteristics. The current owners have landscaped with a wide variety of fruit trees, making for a very attractive exterior. The fruits from those trees are served then served as part of the free breakfast. We had grapefruit, pomegranate seeds, pineapple guava and jujubes. Not many motel breakfasts include those! The rest of... More

We booked based on the 3 star rating and good reviews. Based on our room last night, neither are accurate. This is a 2 star / 6 rating at best. The room (182) was large and sparsely furnished with older worn out furniture. Leather Futon type couch was sagging at both ends. Fridge was unplugged. Bathroom was not clean by... More

The grounds of this hotel are extremely lovely and full of fruit trees. The rooms are clean and well maintained. One of the more interesting facets of a stay here are the owners, an Asian couple who are into Chinese medicine and herbs. They are happy to share some of the more interesting fruits offered and uses in health -... More
