“Ghetto area, ghetto hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2007

I was in Fresno for a friend's wedding so another friend and I went halvers on a room. Found this place through priceline for $50/night for two queen beds.

The room wasn't too bad. Random stains on the carpets and walls. Bathroom door was broken and had no lock, so you couldn't shut it completely and itd slowly open on its own. The beds were somewhat comfortable but the sheets were itchy. The bath towels were like sandpaper and the water in the shower was not very warm. TV remote didn't work and there was something wrong with the TV itself. Mini fridge didn't work. Only got one bar of teeny-tiny soap and a ketchup packet of shampoo.

My friend from Fresno said that the area this Econo Lodge is in is considered the ghetto/bad part of town.

I wouldnt stay here again.

i booked a hotel on econolodge.com in fresno because it was a good stopping point on my road trip and i knew i'd be arriving late and i wanted a clean room in a well-known hotel. i asked for a non-smoking, quiet room on the second floor. i got to the room and it was so disgusting and it overlooks a cemetery!!! the air conditioner is so full of dirt that we were afraid to turn it on and there's a non-smoking sign bolted to the wall. the security lock is broken off the door. it's really a nightmare at this hotel! the staff is friendly enough, but i've never seen such a dirty hotel and I paid FIFTY dollars! The dirtiness and overall decor is what i would expect from a motel that rents rooms by the hour.

  • Liked — i only had to stay for one night, but it was the worst night of my life
  • Disliked — the graveyard i could see from my window.
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple

Had to take my real estate exam in Fresno and this was a perfect location right off the freeway and away from the clusters of other motels in the same area. For the price the bed was fine. Even though the towels were a bit like sandpaper it seemed relatively clean and comfortable. People at check in.out were friendly too. Would recommend for a couple of nights at most. $40.00 - great deal

For the price 40$, it was OK. The room was OK except for that there was an hole in the restroom door. Small breakfast. Fresno doesn't seem to be a town to stay.
