I booked this room last minute and I was very extremely disappointed! The room we got was a double bed, the beds had an old bedspreads over a torn, dirty blanket. The room also has burgundy carpet filled with stains. Most of the light fixtures were broken. The room smelled disgusting, keep out of this place! The place was so... More

I've stayed here twice and each time I was going to a concert at the Save Mart Center. It is literally right across the street from the venue so you don't have to pay for concert parking and can drink in your room beforehand. The rooms are clean and the staff is polite and accommodating - I drive in from... More

There's an old expression that you get what you pay for---well, that's the case here. The University Inn is an OK place if you aren't expecting a great deal. The hideabed which doubled as a couch was damaged and you really couldn't sit on it. The towel rack was damaged and the light in the bathroom was dangling from the... More

The hotel was not far from good places to eat. Syaff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Only problem: I didn't realize how close we'd be to the freeway....a little noisy, but it was nothing my earplugs couldn't fix.

Horrible horrible experience!!! My girlfriend and I spent two nights at University Inn, everything looked promising until we had a complaint. Upon arrival our room was not even ready when we booked in advanced. The clerk offered us a room with two beds, a little unsure at first but we agreed. My girlfriend ended up asking if we could be...

Very conveniently located, right across the street from Fresno State University. The front desk clerk in the evening and also in the morning were very friendly and helpful. The room was shabby. It lacked bed spreads, which I like to turn down so that I know the blankets are cleaner. They forgot shampoo for the bath and the tub was... More

I will probably stay here again because of the price and the cleanliness of the room. The rooms are spartan, but clean. The air conditioning works. My complaint was that I pulled in at 3:00 a.m. after a six hour drive. I was dead tired. The first words from the night clerk was that I'd have to wait until she... More

Clean decent large room and clean bathroom. Comfy kings sized bed. Pool was nice and clean had it all to ourselves, very quiet at night, staff was nice and helpful. Good location near restaurants and a starbucks and a new shopping center soon to open across from the Savemart center. Overall experience was great, I would definitely stay there again.
