“DO NOT STAY HERE.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Do not stay here. Definately roach motel status. We stayed here for the FFA Conference because it was close and because there was breakfast. The room was aweful. Things were broken or missing and there were roaches. Breakfast was watered down oj and a stale danish. Everything was really bad!!!!!

You get what you pay for. Clean and comfortable. The air conditioner worked OK. It was close to where I was visiting and the price was right. Easy to get to freeway and in the center of Fresno down town area.

I walk into my room and it smelt really, sour. Not sure if you know what I mean but it wasn't good. The tv was really low quality for a hotel could of expected better. Our hotel didn't have a kitchen, so the coffee maker was in the bathroom. My blankets were very itchy and uncomfortable and had a yellow stain/tint on them (the blankets were white by the way). The lights were really dim. My experience overall was that I was not pleased with the quality.

I have stayed at many Americas Best Value Inn's across the nation and was very, very disappointed in this one. I was booked for 2 nights but after the 1st night that was it! After arguing with the desk clerk, whom finally called the manager I received a credit for the second night.
These are all the things wrong, very scratchy blanket on my bed, the mirror light was a small 10x10 box with a 20 or 30 watt bulb, not bright enough to see anything. Very little hot water both sink and shower. The 2 body towels were dirty (stained) and scratchy enough to take off your skin. I didn't use them.. The heater didn't work, the pool was under construction along with the sidewallk. The breakfast was a cup of coffee or cappuccino and a small danish roll. This motel is the worst that I have ever stayed at!! Do not stay there..

Room Tip: Do not stay there

I stayed here for 2 nights due to a court hearing. Court is only 1 1/2 blocks away, very convenient. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and helpful. WIFI worked well. Will stay there again when traveling through Fresno.

This motel was clean and the staff friendly. Within walking distance to the Convention Center, 5 blocks. Restaurant on site is a Subway which is not open on Sunday. Local fast foods, McDonalds, Carls only a few blocks away, also a clean and friendly Denny's. Staff suggested an Italian Restaurant near McD's, excellent.
