My wrestling team stayed here while competing at a tournament at the convention center. It is the best value for what you pay for. I am a La Quinta member but the LQ near the convention center wanted to charge me $20/nite for a microwave & fridge. No thanks when I can get it at the Summerfield Inn for free.
The hotel location & the cleanliness of the rooms are very good. The sleep quality was average b/c of the traffic noise coming from the street. In hindsight, I should have requested our rooms to be at the back of the property as it is probably less noisy. But I'm superstitious as whenever we book Rooms 105 & 106, my team does well (booked here the last 3 years). Still, I was able to get a solid nite of sleep.
As far as service is concerned, Rick (owner) made sure our accommodations were EXCELLENT. The few times that I had a minor issue come up, he & his wife promptly resolved it. He also went above & beyond to make sure we were well taken of by opening the continental breakfast an hour early (6am as opposed to 7am) so we could make it to the tournament on time. The breakfast is graded an A-. Sure it's not an expanded continental breakfast, but it has more than your average continental (which consists of just pastries, coffee, & juice). The Summerfield had fruits, an abundance of yogurts, cereal, lots of juices, bagels, toast, & oatmeal. We filled up pretty good w/ this spread.
The only minor things that can be tweaked are more towels in the rooms & the cleanliness of the pool. The pool WASN'T despicable. Just some leaves & stuff on the pool bottom. That's it. The kids & I still took a dip in it for 30 minutes even tho it was ice cold!!
Again, the best value in all of Fresno. We are definitely coming back, but don't count on me telling the other coaches about this hidden gem. I want to make sure they have availability for me for next year!
