Just wanted to write a quick review for anyone who is contemplating staying at this hotel versus the chains in the area. My sister and I stayed here recently while visiting the National Parks. The owners are absolutely lovely and warmly welcomed us to their hotel. The breakfast was very well done; they even made us belgian waffles in the morning. Fruits picked from their own gardens were also available at breakfast and they introduced us to two fruits we had never had before. I would definitely recommend this to anyone passing through.

So Fresno is labelled the armpit of california however if you are enroute to Yosemite National Park you have to stay somewhere! Dont miss out staying with this wonderful couple at Garden Inn Suites. We were welcomed like we had crossed the desert on foot, taken care of, given great suites, provided with the best seats to watch the sun go down, plied with water melon and given a tour of the wonderful gardens. The owners even booked our takeaway Chinnese food for us which we ate outside in the enjoying a cooler climate than that experienced throughout the day..... Great pool, hot tub, sunbeds. Breakfast was one of the best selections in all our stays on the road trip, fresh waffles! So if you are contemplating a stay in Fresno dont hesitate and book this one you wont be disappointed.

Many thanks to the lady owner who purchased gloves for a member of our group had had lost them whilst crossing the desert to Fresno on a Harley!

We took a slight detour on the way back from visiting San Diego in order to see the Forestiere Underground Garden in Fresno. We stayed one night at the Garden Inn, a very pleasant, quiet, clean motel with an outstanding garden and pleasant pool area. It was right across from the Underground Garden. What really made our stay however was the helpfulness and cheerful attitude of the managerial staff one of who was named Jaime. Jaime was a delight and along with her husband, offered up a substantial breakfast that included peaches,plums and passion fruit from the fruit trees and vines on the premises. Although the breakfast was technically self-serve, Jaime hovered and helped make us all a waffle and we feasted on the fresh fruit, eggs and sausages. It was a tremendous value for the price and nice to see an establishment that lives up to it's name.

This hotel seems to have once been apartments or something, so the rooms are big and spacious. They are also clean and the beds are comfortable. The freeway and a suspect residential neighborhood is mere yards away, but surprisingly it is very quiet and peaceful. In fact, my hubby took his early am stroll around the area and the owner of our property didn't know he was a guest and questioned him about why he was there. At first he was slightly offended, but then he realized they were just keeping the place safe and watching out for security reasons. A plus in Fresno.
The owners are the reason the property is so nice. They are friendly and accommodating and make the best free breakfast we had on the road. There are numerous fruit trees on the property and some end up on the breakfast table. The roses are also beautiful. My son complimented the owner on them and she cut 2 of the most fragrant roses for him. If I ever had to be in Fresno again, I would stay here in a heartbeat.

It was an excellent hotel. We got a suite for $100. The hotel has continentel breackfast with fruit that they grow. You can see the fruit trees growing outside of your room. We asked one of the people who owns the inn a question about lemons, and not only did they answer our questions, they gave us a tour of their garden, which had over 60 types of fruit in it, and gave several pieces of fruit From each tree.
