“A wonderful experience. will be back again”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

We and our friend stayed at this nice place for one night. It was very beautiful with flowers and fruit trees. The grounds and the swimming pool water are clean. The room is large and quite.
Next morning, we walked to visit the underground garden next street. There are Costco and other stores nearby. Fresno is close to three National Parks. We are planning to stay at this nice place as a hub to visit those three NP.

Room Tip: look for breakfast. When available, the owner/manager will make fresh citrus juice for you.

Very nice hotel. Perfect for your trips to seqouia or yosemite park. Very lovely owners, they care a lot. Breakfast is great! The hotel garden is very beautyful, so exotic. Very clean, comfy bed. Restaurants are nearby. Near highway, but very quite.

Definitely a unique spot in Fresno. Super clean, the jacuzzi is refreshing, which is why we took the King bed room that is about $50 more than the regular rooms. The place is clearly converted apartments, which makes them spacious, much more so than a chain hotel. The older man who was at reception we believe was the owner. The grounds are very well kept, and our room for very clean.

With all of this said--the hotel I think would be the perfect romantic get-away for a couple looking for this. The jacuzzi is Fantastic, and on off season--the spaciousness of the hotel allows for quite and privacy. Most romantic couples don't care about the following quirks of the place I will describe.

The owners are SUPER NICE and accommodating, and it is clear they work their tails off to maintain the place. It's beautiful and feels more down-to-home than a big hotel. The breakfast was Fab as well.

Okay, so get ready for the kinks. The TV was not great. Not HD. The channels are few. And you cannot control the air conditioning (without some stealthiness). Also, the bathroom light turns off if you haven't moved for more than 5 seconds. My boyfriend joked that they should advertise the hotel as GREEN because they are trying to cut costs from the strange money-saving practices.

Room Tip: If you are A-Type and expect this to be similar to a Big Name Hotel, you might want to pass. If you...

This inn is located between Yosemite NP and Sequoia NP [ a bit more than an hour's drive from each NP] but it is more than worth it; first of all, although not really cheap, it is much cheaper than in or close to the NPs as you can expect but what you get for your money is more than worth it: excellent, large and very clean rooms with a large bathroom, free coffee and tea, free wifi
and a georgious bfst with fresh fruit from their own garden; plenty of free parking space on the spot and a great number of rest's nearby for the evening; on top of this all, very friendly people at the reception; highly recommended indeed! We stayed 4 nights and did not regret our choice at all !

Room Tip: the ideal place between Yosemite and Sequioa NPs

We stayed in this hotel on our way out of Yosemite park, and were really pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly, and the place is just gorgeous. When you walk in the lobby you feel a sense of calm as it definitely has some Feng-Shui decorating elements, and the classical music playing in the background enhances the atmosphere. You can tell a lot of love and hard work goes into this place. This is rare in today's world of major chain hotels. The pool is sparkling clean, the fruit trees are perfectly pruned with lots of fruit, and the entire place is spotless.

The check-in was quick, and even though we stayed during high tourist season (early August), we were upgraded to a suite for free! I was very thankful for this, because after staying in a one bedroom hotel for three days with family ... I was happy to have a door divider between the living room and bedroom :) The place was huge for the price we paid. It was very quiet, and I couldn't even tell we were right next to a freeway.

This hotel also had great amenities. There are some washers and dryers if you need to do laundry, free fresh breakfast, and of course the clean pool. Our suite had a huge kitchen, two TV's, microwave, and fridge.

The Underground Gardens are literally right next door, you just cross the street and your there. If your in town, you should definitely check out the Underground Gardens. The grafted fruit trees that grow up to seven different types of fruit on one tree are pretty amazing. The story behind the place is pretty cool as well.

All in all, this is a great value, and the owners are super friendly. If your ever in Fresno, I would highly suggest this beautiful place to stay.

Room Tip: My only suggestion, is if your REALLY sensitive to noise is to ask for a top floor room (there are o...

The owners are most friendly people, attentive to their guests' needs. The rooms are simple, but clean, with nice furniture. Bathroom in our room in need of a repaint. Good WiFi signal. Good breakfast; I would say better than similarly positioned motels. However: The hotel is just adjacent to a noisy freeway and the sound isolation is insufficient for this location.

We have stayed here twice now and it is great. The rooms are very clean. The atmosphere is wonderful. You would never know your one block from the freeway. They have fresh fruit from the garden every morning. The whole grounds are planted in various fruits and veggies. This is a small business that deserves support. The only place I will ever stay in Fresno.
