Location of the hotel is great! Close to Fresno State as well as a ton of dining. Rooms are clean, although the beds and pillows leave something to be desired (not all that comfortable). The pool is clean, which is awesome. There is also a hot complimentary breakfast, which was decent but nothing great. Very fast and free Wifi! Overall... More

I had several issues with my stay at this hotel, starting with when I rolled over to turn off the bedside lamp and found a flea sharing sharing my pillow. I killed it, but it was too late, it had already bitten my neck. I convinced myself it was just an unfortunate leftover from a four-legged guest and examined the... More

Thought it was great. Best Jacuzzi I've ever been in!! Not sure why, but the phone in our room rang twice with no one on the line. The second time was at 2am! We visited the Jacuzzi twice but the second time, there were no towels. We had to go back to the room dripping all over.

It is a perfectly fine, clean hotel. However, it does need to be refurbished and little repairs done. If you are at all picky about things being done right then this place will make you unhappy. Details were missed such as, vacuuming the stairwell and badly hung shower curtain. I showed up for late check-in and was informed that the... More

Quite a large establishment with very large rooms. Clean bed and bathroom. Comfortable nights sleep. Free parking and wi-fi. 24 hour reception was handy as we were driving until late in the night. Priced reasonably.

We were a family of 2 adults and 3 older children.We had 1 overnight stay at the University Square hotel and had a OK experience. We always check for bedbugs and found nothing. The beds were very good to sleep. Rooms and bathroom were clean. They offered an American breakfast, which was OK.

Even on a day with full occupancy, front desk staff was nice to answer all my questions related to the gym, pool time, guest laundry. Check in was quick.This hotel is recently remodeled with new laminate flooring. Room nice and clean. Breakfast... More

The rooms were nice but a bit worn. The beds were comfortable. The people were polite. The breakfast was better then others. Marie Callender's is right on the corner and gave us a 20% discount with room key card that was nice. Grounds could use some more care.

With this hotel you get exactly what you paid for. A typical 2.5 star accomodations. I stayed just for one night and skipped breakfast, so cant comment on that (but its a plus that free breakfast is included). The toom was ok, clean and spatious. Furniture was a bit old and worn. Overall - a good experience. In-room coffee was... More
