“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

The Front Desk attendees were nice and the beds were comfortable.
The pool, while it looks nice and the cabanas offer shade, was FREEZING cold even when it was 95 degrees out. Our toddler got the chills.
The location was fine for us, we were visiting friends who lived close by.
The cost is reasonable.
But the carpet was old and stained, not good when you have a crawling 1 year old.
The awning above the entry to the hotel was being repaired because it was old and rotting.

It is 3am and not able to sleep because outside our room is a VERY large gang, having just done research I see why no one is approaching them and no police presence, free WiFi is handy here! Look up gangs in Fresno and you will see what I mean! We came here with an organised tour so not under our control but if you are choosing to stop here I would suggest you give the place a miss altogether.
On the positive side the staff are nice, the restaurant served up some very nice food and the pool area is good.
Hopefully we will make it through the night without a shooting, its great to experience the real US of A !!

Room Tip: Not at the front,side or back!

Thank you for reaching out and writing your review. We are sorry you did not feel safe. We did have a bike club in house over the weekend that stay here a couple times a year. I will discuss this situation with hotel management to make sure this does not happen in the future!

Also I will make sure to pass on to the staff of the wonderful job they did with service and let the restaurant know of the wonderful food you had experienced.

Don't be fooled by the name Radisson because it cannot be compared. The place was generally tired, old and dirty. We arrived around ten minutes before bar closing time (at 8:30!) and after a long, exhausting journey we went to get some drinks and were asked to provide ID for a glass of water for my grandson. The two jobsworths behind the bar were convinced my grandson was having alcohol and when we left we were actually followed by the bartender we felt stalked. The lights in our room weren't working properly, there was no remote to the television and the tea and coffee making facilities were filthy. The pictures above do not represent the true hotel.

Quite nice hotel and well situated. Dark when we arrived and room light did not work which left us floundering for alternative light switches. Toilet flush was continuous as diaphram did not sit properly. Lifted lid to effect seal after each flush. Dinner in restaurant was ok however my wife's meatballs were still cold in the middle. Dish was cooked again fresh without the meatballs which was a plus and was very nice. Very friendly and helpful front of house staff. The bar was advertised as open to 11pm on the Friday night however closed at at 9.50pm which was pretty poor show. Breakfast was fine. There is a pool area with sunloungers which was clean and tidy. Lest to conclude this hotel could do better.

Room Tip: Close to the pool seemed to be the best position.

We stay at Park Inns often while working in Europe and they're always fine. And we've stayed at this hotel when it was a different chain and it was acceptable. But now that Radisson has purchased the property, it seems to have gone down hill.

There was no hair dryer in the room; had to call the front desk for one. There was a tray with coffee and tea and mugs but no coffee maker. Huh?

The shower has quite low water pressure. Shower head is positioned so low on the wall that if you're over 5' tall then you'll need to bend at the knees to get under the stream. Neither comfortable nor safe.

Rooms (especially bathrooms) need a major renovation.

Also, there were 4 pillows in the room, all feather--not great if you're allergic to feathers. Most hotels we go to have both options in the room. Called the front desk again and they said they send some right over. An hour later they rang my room and said they had none, but someone was out buying them and that I'd have them in 20 minutes. An hour later, still no pillows but I had to leave for a work function. When I returned around midnight, there were no pillows in the room. I called the front desk again and they said that the owner had purchased some but he didn't know where they were. I asked if they'd given the non-feather pillows that I'd requested to another room and he said yes. WTH? Staff is very nice but obviously incompetent in this regard.

The title is a lot like me....was traveling thru for an ag show in a nearby town...room was large..king bed,recliner chair,couch,refer,and flat screen tv....but a lot of other reviewers were right...air conditioner didn't work..very noisy..my room over looked a gas station/store that had bright lites on all nite so opening a window,6-8 inches max, was out of the question...morning coffee,very important to me,was very bitter and didn,t show up till after
6 am...I get up a lot earlier...room coffee was not good either...would not stay here again if I ever get thru Fresno again which probably won't happen

Room Tip: No "free" breakfast at this place

Stayed one night for a state band competition. The room was large and spacious but I could hear every foot fall from the room which shared the common wall next to the bed. I could also hear the toilet running all night. In the morning, 4 family members in 2 other rooms plus myself all got locked out of our rooms and had to make the long trek back to reception to get new room cards. The free wifi was spotty at best and the room thermostat temperature display was only in celsius. The carpet in the hallway entering our 2nd floor lobby was torn out and the bare floor was dirty and difficult to maneuver our luggage over. There was no elevator access and it was very hard carrying luggage up 2 flights of stairs. I had stayed here 4 years prior and feel the quality has not been maintained but the price has gone up.
