Aside from not having working heat in my room and it not being fixed after 14 hours I found myself looking over my shoulder as I walked to my room. After changing rooms my tub didn't drain and had no hot water. RUN AWAY.

We really enjoyed our one night stay. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was just right for us! The free hot breakfast was just Ok. You can't beat the price for the room. The hotel was exactly what we needed for our Yosemite trip. It is close enough to drive. There was a nice quiet swimming pool,...

Spacious room with clean and comfortable beds. Hot breakfast with sausage, ham, and egg. We stayed at the University Square Hotel while on our visit to Fresno State University, located adjacent to the University campus. It was located next to Marie Callender's and Black Angus restaurants. The hotel was a basic, older style with European design. I would definitely say...

We always like to look good in anything, but be warned and don't even consider booking at this dirty and unorganized and unhealthy hotel. We took our 90-year-old mother and was told she would have a handicap room a few doors for us and that we would definitely have a king size bed. He ended up at the end of...

Room before taxes: $62.31. Hotel is in what appears to be a good neighborhood and there's a good degree of security measures. Room was decently sized and had a fridge. There's a nice courtyard that made it feel nicer than what it was. The free breakfast, while not gourmet, was satisfying and free. Powdery eggs and french fries were ok,...

it was clean and the bed was ok, the main reason to stay here is that its close to the football stadium. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and even a halfway decent sports bar, Swigs. The game we attended ended at 10:30p and pretty much everything was closed by then. Went back to the room and could...

This conveniently located hotel has a little age on it but is still a very nice place for the amount of the rooms. They offer a hot breakfast buffet every morning, free Wi-Fi, a large swimming pool, a hot tub, and a laundry room for guest. There are many restaurants in the area some within walking distance.

This is a budget hotel ($69) right across from Fresno State, so I'm staying here for the 2nd time. The hotel, once nicer, has been allowed to decay and is now quite shabby, but that's fine with me if the room is clean and comfortable and all the amenities work. The room is very spacious and seems clean, no problems...
