We made a mistake with our date but the female checkin staff was so wonderful to accommodate us. We were so relieved to have a clean and convenient place to stay on a busy Saturday night in Fresno. Room is of adequate size with microwave and coffee maker. It is also close to the state university.

We went there with a big group of friends. Rooms were nice, but sleeping quality was unacceptable. Room was very hot, and the AC actually had just two settings: ON and OFF. I mean, there was also the temperature, but it didn't work. It was very noisy, and fans are at the same level as the bed, so air gets... More

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.

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...
