“New Spot for us in Fresno”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been loyal to another Hotel, but decided to cash in some points for a 2 night stay. The property is tucked away off the road near the Elks Club and some business offices. We found the room to be clean and well appointed. The staff was super helpful and nice. They have a sport court and let you checkout tennis rackets and basketballs, which we took advantage of. The breakfast in the morning was good if you get there early. The crowds are pretty typical around 9:00am, but the food was good as was the selection.
My only complaints were the AC noise in our room. The unti is near the bathroom in the bedroom and was pretty load. Could be that it needs a new filter. Also the pool are was not kept clean. This is always a pet peeve of mine as it doesn't take anytime to hose off the pool deck and wipe down the tables and chairs. They were also always out of towels.
Overall, the family enjoyed this hotel very much and it is close to everything on the North end of town and not far by freeway to downtown.

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn by Marriott Fresno for your recent stay. I was happy to hear you enjoyed the sport court and breakfast options.

I appreciate your feedback on the pool area and AC unit issues and will be sure to pass the information on to my staff. Again thanks for taking the time to “tell it like it was” for it is through comments such as yours that we are able to continuously work to exceed our guests’ expectations. We hope you’ll again give us the privilege to accommodate you on your next visit to Fresno.

We stayed here on our way from Seattle to San Diego & it was perfect. The rooms were very clean & quiet. The staff was very helpful & accommodating. I used the workout room & laundry room. I was very impressed with both. We really enjoyed our stay here!

Incredible value a mile west of Fresno State with quick access to the the highway. Only an hour from the Yosemite Park south entrance and the Mariposa Grove so it was a great place for us to stay the night before a a trip to Yosemite. Standard Residence Inn format building - full kitchen, separate bedroom area - very comfortable for long term or overnight stays. Clean, good service, well maintained. The food seemed much better than most Residence Inns. Full complementary meals on Mon, Wed and Fri. Wednesday night is bar-b-que - ours was hot links with all the fixings and sides. The spinach florentine for breakfast was excellent - fresh and tasty. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 2 nights in the 1 bedroom suite. Main room had a full kitchen, table/2 chairs, Couch with pull-out bed, desk/chair. Separate bedroom had queen size bed. When we went to makeup the sofabed for the kids one of the sheets had several holes in it. I called the front desk and they had replacement sheets sent up to us right away. It wasn't a big deal to me, but I was really impressed with what happened the next morning. The next day I received a message from the hotel manager apologizing for the sheets, reassuring me that this isn't how they run their hotel, and gave me some additional Marriott reward points too. When running a hotel, I'm sure mistakes are made from time-to-time and how the hotel staff/mgmt handles those incidents says alot about the staff/mgmt. It really made an impression on me.

The laundry facility had two washers/dryers ($1.00). Property had pool/spa, basketball court, and BBQ area. Breakfast/sitting area off the lobby was nice with large flat screen TV. Breakfast had a good selection of options (waffles, eggs, breakfast burritos, yogurt, muffins, bagels, oatmeal, etc.)
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

The rooms here are very clean and nicely laid out with all that you'll need. The location is close to the freeway, making getting around very easy. There are many restaurants and stores close-by. I didn't visit the pool or work-out area, but it all looked very clean and secure. The value of this room was very good! Only suggestion - pay attention to the address and directions, because the street it is on isn't marked as clearly as it could be, with a sign for the Residence Inn right off of Barstow.

We booked this hotel last minute. Our original plans were to stay at Yosemite for 3 nights at the Yosemite Lodge. Due to the heat wave and no A/C we decided to cut our stay short and head into Fresno to find a hotel with A/C. What a great choice! Not only was our room in great condition the staff were wonderful to work with! We took advantage of the "nacho bar" they had during the week night, and enjoyed the breakfast the next day.

We also used the pool which was great and played a little tennis on their "mini-court" with our son. I had read another review about the dryers not drying, but we washed 3 loads of clothes and everything worked great!

Location was nice and in good area. Great stay, highly recommend and we would stay here again if in the area.

We just returned from a week long trip around Central California. We chose to stay at the Residence Inn Fresno for two nights as we headed from the coast to Kings Canyon.

The hotel was really conveniently located. Right off a busy commercial district in a quiet neighborhood on a side street. It is surrounded by lots of retail stores and restaurants.

The room was really comfortable. It included a kitchen, which we didn't use, and a bedroom. The bathroom was spacious and the sink was located outside the toilet and shower section. Really convenient when you're traveling with a group.

The breakfast was a little better than what we expected and changed a bit each day. One day they had scrambled eggs mixed with sausage and green pepper and it was delicious.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We would definitely consider staying here again.
