“So So, 1 night stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

So we took a quick weekend trip to Yosemite, which turn out to be pretty tiring. I book this through price lines bet, so I don't really know how much is the actual price. The check in was, ok I guess. Hotel does not have a elevator, so I suggest you guys get first floor. Ours was second floor, and the hall look dark (kind of creepy from horror movie.) The only new thing we say in the room were the TV, rest is kind of out of date. Clean, but not too clean. I just wish they have new carpet. Rest is ok. Reason I book this because there is no hilton, or hyatt near by, and I'm not driving 3 hours to go to Intercontinental San Francisco and 5 hours back to LA for 1 night trip.

Room Tip: Get first floor, so you can get to the pool from your room.

We live outside Fresno and had to be at the airport at 5am... rather than hassle with the early morning drive, we opted to stay at the Piccadilly Inn and get a good night's sleep. We were able to leave our car in their parking lot (no extra charge) while we were away and were able to make use of their shuttle back and forth to/from the airport. Our room was quiet, comfortable and we will stay again the next time we have an early flight!

The rooms and hotel are showing signs of their age. Carpets are worn, bathroom looks very dated. When we walked by the TV the TV cabinet doors would rattle. And I am a small person so floors must really be weak/thin? Hallways noise when people go by- talking and a ringing cell phone that we thought was on our room but was in the hallway- so walls are thin. TV reception was horrible. Screen was full of snow like it was in the 70's with rabbit ears. Internet was down for replacement? The air conditioner was set at 72 degrees and it ran almost all night long at a very LOUD noise level. Hard to sleep it was so LOUD.

I didn't expect much as it was a low price but it was even lower than my low espctations. It was ok for a short one night stay. It is very convenient to Highway 180 to Kings Canyon/Sequoias National Park which is why I stayed there

Room Tip: Get inside courtyard view over looking green area

This hotel is listed as a 3*. It is a stretch to call it a 2*. The rooms are musty and dingy. It is in a shady neighborhood. My wife turned on the light at 3 am to scare away the noises she heard in the parking lot outside. The beds are hard and need replacing. There was also no hot water for the shower in the morning. NONE. We spoke to the front desk about it and were told that they'd get maintenance to look at it. WHEN - next week, next month - are we supposed to wait to take a shower until then... TERRIBLE hotel with TERRIBLE customer service.

Room Tip: The only tip I can give is AVOID this hotel at all cost.

Flew in on Sunday night for a Monday meeting. No shuttle in sight at the airport, so I opted for a cab. The hotel is clean but worn. That said, it's in much better shape than the Shaw Piccadilly location. All of the Fresno hotels I have stayed at are lacking in some way. So, for the location and price, I can't complain. Compared to the St. Regis I was at last night in Orange County, you could go on for days about this place. But, we're not in Orange County toto. It's Fresno.

Stayed here on a Saturday evening after attending a wedding in Fresno. Long line at the front desk for check-in. One person working, and she was juggling a lot, all at the same time. I really admired her calm demeanor, but it would have been a better experience for those of us standing in line if she had had some help. After waiting too long, check-in process was quick and easy. We had a pool view room on the ground floor, so access was very easy. The room itself was a little outdated, but generally clean. The only cleaning criticism I really have is that the a/c vent was covered with dust - I don't think it's been vacuumed in months. Bathroom was clean, and the TV worked fine. The noise from other rooms was a little excessive at times, especially from the room above us, but we learned to ignore it. The hotel was ok, as I said in the title.

Room Tip: First floor, pool rooms are great.

There's not a lot to recommend this hotel other than convenience to the airport. Public areas and guest rooms are worn (although clean) and in serious need of refurbishing. There is no guest elevator, so if you are carrying (lugging) a suitcase or are mobility-impaired, you'd better hope for a first-floor room with no one above you. As others have noted, you can forget the Internet - it is unbelievably slow, so if you need access, you'd definitely better stay somewhere else. It may be that business in general is slow in Fresno, but at the Piccadilly, it was essentially non-existent - the bar even closes between 2:00 and 5:00 PM, the restaurant was eerily empty, and there were almost no cars in the parking lot on a Monday night. It is literally about three minutes from hotel to airport terminal - sad that a place with so much potential misses the mark so widely.
