“Does not compare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Standard, but getting tired two story motel. Comfortable enough but can’t hold a candle to the BW Executive Inn and Suites we stayed in last night in Manteca for $13 less a night. Missing here: a lounge chair with footrest, the larger flat screen, the microwave, the safe, the larger refrigerator, and a much larger room. One tiny bar of soap. If this is a Best Western Plus I would hate to stay in a BW Minus. There is another BW in Fresno might be better? Sorry guys, I’d give this a pass.

After checking in this evening I was unable to connect to any of the hotel's wifi networks. I attempted using both my laptop and my phone. I called the front desk and the clerk said he would reset the router. After several more unsucessful connection attempts, I again called the front desk and was told, "Sorry, the tech people won't be in until the morning."

This is not the first time I have encountered wifi issues at this property and have in fact started staying at the other Best Western in Fresno. I used to stay here monthly and thought I would give them another try. However, based upon this problem, I'd be hard pressed to stay here again. I depend upon reliable wifi for work and the lack thereof is a deal breaker for me.

We arranged a group of 27 on a bus to stay at this Best Western, and what a good choice it turned out to be. The staff had our room keys ready for us, and the rooms were immaculate with comfortable beds. The hot breakfast was a real plus. We would use this Best Western again any time. The price was very reasonable, too.

Fair location but car desirable.

Spacious, comfortable rooms with good facilities (especially in comparison to what we had received in Europe)

Good value for a night's rest on way from A to B.

Staff helpful and polite.

Thank you for your review. We are located in the intersection of main streets and off the interstate. However, there is a public bus stop right in front of the property. We will continue to seek for areas of improvements

Decent place, 2-story building, no elevator but there is a pool, fitness centre, business centre, close to shopping mall, Dennys, McDonalds, Fresno Donut and Kings Buffet. Room is basic with 2-queen beds, tall-boy dresser, 36" LCD, coffee maker, full bath with ample supply of towels and toiletries, free Internet and complimentary breakfast with hot and cold items, but no in-room safe, fridge, or microwave though.

Good value for a good night's rest.

The hotel stands in an unsafe neighbourhood. We arrived late so we decided to have a quick dinner at the Mc Donnalds acroos the street. When we were there the waiter told us it would be better for us to carry the food to our room because we look to much like european tourists and he was afraid for us. It wasn't a joke. He told us he had to call the cops twice the days before because of troubles with some tourists and youns thiefs. except for this, the hotel is average. No lift wich is hard when you have plenty of luggages. The breakfast place is really small and not a lot of choice (no sausages, potatoes, etc..)

Thank you for your review. We have updated our hot breakfast menus which includes scrambled eggs, sausages and hams and biscuits and gravy along with fresh fruits from local farmer's market. As for security in the neighbourhood, unfortunately we have no measures to control what's happening outside but our hotel is located in safer neighbourhood than other hotels in Fresno. We have 35-40 security cameras at the hotel and security guard on property from 9pm to 5am everyday. We hope that you give us chance to show you our improvements on the next trip to Fresno.

I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews on this site, but as soon as I pulled into the parking lot my fears subsided. Honestly, some of the things people complained about were just unwarranted. My husband and I travel quite a bit (as you can see from my many postings) and there simply was nothing to complain about here. We booked on Priceline and got our room last night (Aug 4, 2012) for 60 bucks. The front counter lady was VERY friendly and we checked in quickly and easily. Our room was clean and had all the amenities we needed for an overnight stay. The hotel was booked solid, but not overly noisy. The neighborhood may not have been the best, but we never felt unsafe and there was security at night. We walked across the street to get doughnuts at about 1am and never felt like our lives were in danger. Plus the doughnuts were a goood after midnight snack for under 3 bucks (for four!). This is not a 5 star hotel, but what do people expect? For the price you can't beat it, and we will definitely be back as we have family in the area.

Room Tip: Maybe call the hotel direct to get a good deal if you don't want to take a chance on Priceline
