“STAY AWAY!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

STAY AWAY! There are too many other places who value your business and offer a clean, reasonably priced room BUT this is NOT one of them. One of the worst hotels I have been involved with in decades. They are trying to hide from their past by changing their name but it appears to be the same owners who make no effort to improve their property, amenities or staff friendliness.

I am a 48 year old business traveler who pays out of his own pocket on these trips for our family business and I stay in 40-45 hotels a year and this by far is the worst I have experienced. If you choose to stay in this place after reading this review then it is all on you......you have been warned. It would be better to sleep in your car then stay here. By the way I am not a vindictive reviewer ....this is the only hotel I gave a "terrible" review after reviewing about 30 hotels over the past 2+ years. Just find anywhere else....let this one die the way it should have years ago.

Any review that is higher than "poor" is either A: is lying, B: is being paid or is part of the ownership or C: has never staying anywhere else in their life.

Good luck on your travels and make you trip better by staying somewhere else.

Room Tip: Really??? did you read the review??

Hotel is nice and average, they have a pool that is a welcome relief during the summer time, the rooms are about average, although some of rooms are not quite as nice as others. The have a excellent restaurant, that would highly recommend if you stay there.

Room Tip: Stay in room overlooking the pool

This hotels is not The Quality Inn ofr Fresno. The new owners changed the name to The Ashland Inn and you won't know that until ypu arrive at the hotel. We stayed one day out of the two days we booked there. The hotels was dirty and nothing worked. The light over the sink went off and on all night. The maintenance man could not fix until the next day. The room look like it hadn't been cleaned all week. We picked up a pillow and found strands of hair on the sheet. But the last straw was finding roaches running around in the bathroom. We asked and asked to be moved and the hotel staff and front desk manager could not help us. I have never seen a hotel this bad.

Room Tip: Make sure what is pictured on web sight is the attual way the Hotels looks like.

We had a lovely stay here - and were upgraded on arrival which was an added bonus. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was good and the cleanliness was of a very high standard. The hotel is in a perfect location - far enough away from the center of the town to be very peaceful yet near enough to get anywhere easily. The views are unbelievably beautiful and it is well worth taking a ferry trip up / down the lake. The only slight drawback was wi-fi access which was patchy and unpredictable. We did not take advantage of either the fitness center or the swimming pool - given the standard of the meals, we probably should have done!

Room Tip: Service are excellent. Sleep quality are quite good. Excellent clean service. Room location are not...

Air conditioning went out in car and we needed a place to spend the night while it was repaired. This hotel fit that bill. The room was nice and cool and clean, I'm confused about the other reviews I see on here, perhaps they were thinking this is supposed to be a luxury hotel? The wifi did not work so well, but kicking back and relaxing to a movie was great. There is a restaurant next door that is apparently voted best of Fresno and once you visit, you'll see why, it literally made my bad day fabulous. The desk clerk was also super friendly and helpful and tried to reset the wifi for us.
