“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here before but don't remember it being so nice. Our room was super clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We had our granddaughter with us and she slept on the sofa bed, which she said wasn't very comfortable at all. The seating area in the lobby is like somebody's living room. Very nice. The price was more than affordable and the staff were pleasant. We make 3 or 4 trips to Tulare each year and will be staying here again.

We have stayed in Tulare many times before but never at this facility. The Charter Inn and Suites was a very convenient location, next to a large mall and just off the interstate 5. Our room was booked on Hotels.com and the price was under $75 for a large room with sleeper couch. From first entering the hotel until we left, everything was very nice. The lobby was large with a fireplace and lounge area. Although we did not participate, there was a "happy hour" with complimentary wine and beer. The lounging area was very attractive. We were warmly greeted at registration and the staff was very friendly all the while we were there. It was very quiet in our third floor room. The breakfast was up to par with most other hotels of this kind. Although there was some delay with an elevator that was stuck on the 3rd floor, that was soom remidied and there was little inconvenience in checking out and getting out luggage down to the first floor. Also, the ice machine on the 3rd floor was not working.

Room Tip: I think most rooms were about the same, not sure there is anything special about any part of the bui...

We went up to Yosemite and back to Huntington Beach, CA. Feb. 2013. We stayed here both Fridays going up and back. The location for this place is just off the fwy on Prosperity. The rooms smell good from the cleaning and the beds are very comfortable. They have a nice breakfast with eggs, bacon and waffles you can make. Lots to eat and fruit to take away. It's quiet and close to a mall where you can catch a movie! We would not hesitate to stay there again...very reasonable price with a small pool (we didn't use as the weather was cool...but great for traveling in summer with kids.) Nice personnel as well. Thank you Charter!

Room Tip: My husband has difficulty walking so we stayed on first floor as per request.

A very clean, friendly stay. Excellent location (shopping mall and cinema just behind). Excellent value and a good breakfast.

We made a last minute (inexpensive) booking on Expedia and, for some reason, although we got an immediate confirmation, it took about 15 minutes for the booking to come through to the hotel. They were happy for us to sit in the lounge and enjoy the complementary cheese and biscuits whilst waiting for the formal confirmation of the booking.

This place was recommended to us when we went to Tulare on a business trip. It was centrally located, safer area in town with a free breakfast. The staff was very polite and professional. I took my whole family on this trip and even took our dog. They charge a very reasonable $10 fee for pets.

The room wad clean although the bed was to hard for me. The breakfast was decent and consisted of breads, cereals, scrambled eggs and sausage. They also had fresh waffles and a variety of drinks.

Overall this was an excellent value and we will stay here again if we ate in Tulare again.

I am really a normally positive person but not this time. Didn't notice till am since we'd spent a long day on the road but...wash cloth on bath was soiled, bath floor was dirty. Bed had been ok but pillows very hard. Breakfast buffet was poor, bananas way past looking good. Location by outlet mall and big theater multi plex was great. Quality Inn is right next door and may be a better choice.
