I'm not sure where these good reviews are coming from, this place is a dump! The front desk staff was very friendly, I will give them that. The outside may look clean and kept up in the daylight, but our room was disgusting! Carpet was filthy and had places where it looked like someone had burned it. Vanity mirror had gang grafitti etched into it. TV was not working properly, had lines along the top. Towels were thin and scratchy. We could hear every move of the people above us, along with every flush of the toilet and shower. We left our room to go get dinner at around 7:30 pm only to be greeted by a group of 5 pot smoking thugs hanging out outside of their room, right in front of our car. Thank god the car was still there! Clearly they were there to handle "business" and we were in the way. The room they were doing this in was right behind the office, no way that they couldn't hear/smell that! I have never felt more unsafe at a hotel than this. I didn't sleep a wink. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Saving a few extra bucks is not worth compromising your safety.

I have stayed in this motel for one night in October 2012. The place is a convienient location for visiting e.g. Yosemite National Park, which is in about a 1 hour drive distance. Rooms offer good value for money but don't expect too much. Cleanliness was average. Next to the motel there is a Freeway which causes considerable noise. However, Krystal from the front desk was very helpful in finding me a room facing at the other side of the building. I very much apprechiated that.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is not facing to the freeway.

I have to be honest, I don't usually choose a Motel 6 but was only looking for a quiet place for the night. I was surprised at how pleasant the stay here was. The desk manager, Krystal, was very helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and quiet. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Access to the second floor rooms can be a little inconvenient if you have a lot to carry up. Also...

Long day and I pulled off the road at Shaw. Seen the sign and I just got a room. The room was big and the pool was just what I needed. The service at the front desk ( Krystal ) was very knowledgeable at the where a bouts of everything around the area. She pointed out some very good places to eat and was it good, thank you...

the hotel room was fine, and the staff very friendly. the problem was the person above me kept walking back and forth in his room-more than likely from smoking dope-with the ceiling constantly creaking all night long was very annoying. on top of that was the group that JUST HAD to stand outside my door and have a conversation around 3am till 6am. then getting ready to leave that morning and finding a pile of towels at my door. i mentioned it to the staff and we concluded they mustve thought i was undercover so the towels were a mark. if there was a way to maybe put all the shifty characters on one end of the hotel and all the normal people everywhere else it would be a better spot to stay at. maybe some armed security guards might scare the riff raff away. like i said it just got very annoying, and i chose not to confront them and then have to worry about my tires on my car mysteriously disappearing.

Room Tip: unless you have headphones or cotton in your ears, stay away from room 108. 117 looks like someone t...

My wife and I stayed here on our trip to Yosemite. This Motel 6 was in a great location, near the Highway, near gas stations, restaurants within walking distance, etc. It seemed to be in a decent part of town as well unlike some of the other bargain priced hotels in Fresno judging by their reviews. The hotel was very nice and clean, plus the pool looked nice as well. We had a King room on the first floor with a desk and a mini fridge and everything was very clean and in good working order. The place was quiet and had nice parking as well. I will definitely stay here again if in Fresno!!
