This hotel is close to Fresno State. That's really about all anyone will likely care about.
I spent only a single night there. It hasn't been updated in many many years. The upside of this is that at least my room was large - I think most of them are. It seemed clean and the bed was comfortable.
Beyond that, however, the exercise room was really substandard: well-worn interior with a couple of treadmills and exercise bikes (neither in top shape), and an all-in-one machine in the corner. No free weights, dumbbells, benches, etc. The complimentary breakfast did include some protein in addition to the cereal: about the blandest scrambled eggs I think I've ever had, and sausage that tasted leftover from a fast-food biscuit.
I got a deal online for the room, so the value equation at least was right.
