“Awesome stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2011

I previously stayed at this hotel when it was the Picadilly Inn. Along with the new name, it is under new management so disregard old negative comments. After moving my college student into the dorms at Fresno State, I arrived really tired and was pleasantly surprised by all the improvements. Location to the college is the great and surrounded by many good restaurants within walking distance. I will definitely stay here again when I am in Fresno.

I've stayed in this hotel over the last decade for various reasons and have never had any problems and just returned from staying overnight after a trip to Yosemite. Those who post poor reviews are just complainers by nature in my book. Easy check-in, happy hour and breakfast are what you pay for (nothing fancy), and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of places to eat nearby; some within walking distance. I recommend this hotel.

this so called hotel is very outdated, dirty, and unsafe, the staff was very unhelpful and they don't know what the word service means. My room had left over trash and left over food in the refridgerator. I would recomend a cheap motel over this dump any day
