“Nice place”
Reviewed August 7, 2007

We stayed at the Residence Inn for 2 nights. specifically to see some minor league baseball games.

Location- The location was central Fresno close enough to freeways but in a quiet section directly behind The Courtyard by Marriott. It was also close enough to downtown Fresno, Chukchansi Park, Fig Garden, The River shopping ctr. Great location overall.

Check-in- Simple and fast.

Rooms- we stayed in a1 bedroom suite. Clean. Furniture in good condition, Kitchen nice and clean. Beds comfortable.

Daily Breakfast- Very Good and fresh, standard Marriott Residence breakfast . Better than other Residence we've stayed at. Good variety, great for families. Nice lobby area that looks to be remodled ,very pleasant.

I would definetly stay at this location again if your in the area or just passing through.

When I first started traveling to Fresno I was concerned about the lack of a full service hotel such as a full-service Marriott. This was before I discovered this hotel! The Residence Inn Fresno is unquestionably the best Residence Inn I've ever stayed at, and the best hotel in Fresno. The staff are personally invested in making each guest feel welcome, and it really does feel "like home" rather than a hotel. The rooms are very clean, the exercise room is adequate, and the breakfast is superb. The hotel would be above average even without the quality of its staff, but the welcoming nature of all employees makes this a cut above.

The Residence Inn was one of the few hotels in the area that had two room suites. It was perfect for my family who wanted to be together but didn't want to be on top of each other. Each room had its own bathroom, and the rooms were joined by a full kitchen and a living room. The beds in the rooms had extremely soft sheets. We especially liked the breakfast in the morning. It wasn't your standard fare of bagels and croissants. The selection did change on a daily basis. There was always at least one warm dish such as scrambled eggs or pancakes. Making our own waffle was also one of the options. It was pretty conveniently located. We liked the fact that it was 5 minutes away from Trader Joe's.

I was in Fresno on business for a total of seven nights. My first two were spent at the Extended Stay America, which looked fine from the outside, but was awful -- bed and pillows that were brick-like, nasty smell in the room, virtually no amenities, and infrequent maid service. Switched to the Residence Inn for the rest of my trip, and was in seventh heaven! Very spacious, immaculate one-bedroom suite with a great kitchen, super comfortable bed and pillows with superior linens, a roomy bath area and free high-speed internet access. The breakfast buffet was way above average (including make-your-own waffles and other hot food choices), and although I didn't try it, I understand a meal can be made from the munchies provided at the complimentary evening reception. The service was also friendly and quick: When my refrigerator malfunctioned, it was repaired immediately, and my request for a longer ethernet cable was also granted speedily. The government rate was comparable to the Extended Stay America ($12 more per night), and the difference was worth every penny. You can't go wrong staying at the Residence Inn!

The non-smoking rooms we were given had unbreathable smokey air in it. The whole family hardly slept at all. A terrible experience.

It is located in a very convenient location, near lots of shopping, highway 41, and restaurants. While the one bedroom suite which we had could have been a little bigger, it worked for my family of four. Service was excellent and breakfast was fine and varied. Previous posters are correct on thin walls. Our neighbor's alarm clock went off at 4:30 AM and we thought it was in our room. Only disapointment was that website indicated that there is a managers reception and cocktails, but what they really provide on week nights only, is a snack like chips, beef stew or hot dogs. No alcoholic beverages-not really a big deal, since you can walk to Trader Joes from there and buy whatever you want. I sent Marriott some input regarding the site.
