“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

It is good for the price but don't expect anything awesome. The room was tight, it looked like there were a few patched up holes on a few walls, and our door had a hard time opening. The sheets weren't tucked in and I didn't feel comfortable walking with bare feet on the floor. It was fine for a stop during our road trip and the people were nice. There was one guest who was so load and kept coughing outside their door and the sound was so load. Im not sure how the windows hold out sound, or the door.
Breakfast looked small so I didn't eat there and went to a starbucks just a short drive away.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

An older hotel recently updated. Very clean, new bathroom, tile, carpeting and furnishings, although the room was "compact". The day staff (appear to be the owners) were very helpful, even personally making me the best cup of decaf I've ever had when none was on the breakfast bar.
But they missed a few things on the renovation: no outlets at the desk for the computer, no hold bars in the slippery shower and very annoying automatic lights and fans so it was impossible to use the bathroom at night without blaring lights and loud fan automatically coming on. Why there was only a double bed when the room was obviously set up for a queen or king is a mystery. Also, there strangely is a well supplied breakfast bar, but no tables and chairs. This means taking the food out to the pool area or to one's room - a balancing act if there ever was one.
There are no restaurants in the area except an independent burger carry out place. DO NOT GO THERE unless you really love overcooked cardboard and dead, dry, hard fries.
Not the worst place, but it's got a ways to go.....

This Econolodge was very conveniently located, easy access to Hwy 99. I stay in fresno quite often, but never had a opportunity to try this place. I am very glad I did. We checked in to non smoking room and got exactly what we asked for clean and fresh room. Staff was very friendly and courteous and attended all our needs. I would and will recommend this hotel for travelers who are going through Fresno and wants quite and comfortable stay.

Checked in and was given smoking room. Changed to non smoking but first one next to smoking section so it still smelled. Pillows were very worn and thin. Asked 3 times for additional pillows before I got one 1.5 hours later. Beds do not have fitted sheets so after one or two turns we were on the bare mattress. Website says all rooms have iron and board but there was no iron and front desk said they were out of irons. Towels felt like sandpaper. Overall a terrible experience. Never again. A small investment by the owners could improve this property greatly.

Rocked up on the off chance just of the off ramp of the 99. Ended up staying an extra day. Fresno has a lot going for it and this motel is well located, clean, friendly and damn good value for money. Not everyone in life is as upright and honest as a British or American politician and we did see a drug dealer and a prostitute. Their business did not affect me in any way and it did not feel unsafe for a second.

Nice, clean room with all the amenities you'd expect from a budget hotel. We got a queen size and it's a bit small, but it's just fine. Four HBO channels and a homemade waffle for breakfast! The hotel staff was really nice and helpful. The only drawback from some people might be that it is right next to a cemetery (although there was no strange, creepy sound at night or anything). We paid $50 for the night and it was well worth it.
