We visited our son and grandson in Visalia for Christmas and stayed at this location. We've been here before and have been very satisfied with the accomodations.
It is still a great place to stay but the rooms are starting show signs of wear. The wallpaper near the window was starting to bubble up and the blinds have spots where they are so thin the light comes through.
We will stay there again, but if we find a more comfortable place we'll probably swap.
We didn't have the free breakfast in the morning, but they are now requiring a 'coupon' to get the breakfast...so if you are the kind that goes down and grabs a few things to bring back to the room, don't expect entry back in for seconds.
The staff was very nice at checkin/checkout and the FREE parking in an enclosed area was very welcome due to the rain.
One minor issue is the fact that this place is located across the street from a convention center and when there is an event it can get quite noisy. It wasn't too bad the night we were there, but the opportunity does present itself.

My wife and I stayed here one night while heading south for Christmas. The hotel is older and in the middle of downtown Visalia. We've stayed at Comfort Inns and now Comfort Suites before that were okay but call me 'old school' but I like it when the bathroom sink/sinks are actually IN the bathroom and not outside the bathroom door.

When we entered the room it was really cold and dreary. The heater was very noisy but kept us from hearing the street noise outside. The shower curtain rod was broken. The elevator was slow.

Unsavory characters in parking garage upon arrival too.

The staff was nice and the breakfast was okay.

The next time I think we will stay closer to I-5.
If you are going up to see the Giant Sequoias (Which we highly recommend) there are better places to stay in Visalia.
Price was right. $80. You get what you pay for....
Thanks.

We were pleased with our room here--two exceptionally comfortable queen beds, a pleasant sitting room with sofa bed (which wasn't outstanding), and adequate space. They offer a full, cooked breakfast that is excellent. The price was a very reasonable $80. Staff was outstanding, gracious, helpful. A great find, centrally located.

This was one of my favorite motels ever. There were two rooms, and both were large, with a wet bar and the bathroom in the middle. It was only $80 including tax mid-week. The accommodations were top-notch, everything that I wanted. It is on a side street in the middle of the downtown, and so it was really convenient for going out at night. It had a Big City feel, but is in this po-dunk central valley town. It looked like there were nice restaurants nearby. You get a pass to park free in the parking garage. They had fake eggs, potatoes (which were good), and the other continental breakfast stuff. The windows only opened a couple inches. The rooms seemed quiet, but then there was no one else on our entire floor. Smokers are not welcome here.

A very pleasant stay in Comfort Suites located in a downtown Visalia highrise building. It was very comfortable and quiet, regardless of it's location. We had a room facing the back alley that overlooks the hotel lobby entrance /parking area. Parking is in the adjacent downtown public parking garage. We received a dashboard pass so that we weren't charge or ticketed for parking. Dining was steps away on Main Street, just around the corner! The room was spacious and updated. We had a king bed in the main room with a TV. The room also had a sitting area (seperated from the main bedroom by the bathroom) with a pull-out sofa bed that had it's own TV. There was a bar with sink, fridge, and microwave located in the sitting room. Would have been a good suite for family with kids or two couples. It was a great overnight stay before heading into Sequoia National Park. We would stay here again!

We stayed at the Comfort Suites in downtown Visalia while visiting the Sequoia National Park. (The drive was a bit further than I would have liked, but it was a last minute trip and no rooms were available in Three Rivers.) This hotel is located across from the Visalia Convention Center and is within walking distance of a number of restaurants, a theatre and a movie theater.

We found the staff at Comfort Suites to be friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast was a nice surprise; it was more like a limited buffet than continental breakfast. They also offer free parking and free WiFi, plus an ethernet connection in the room. If I was in the area, I'd gladly stay here again.

We ended up in the Comfort Suites in Visialia California quite by accident. Our car was demolished in a collision with another car and the driver of the truck that towed our car recommended Comfort Suites as a good place.
What an understatement THAT was. We were still very traumatized and becomming depressed by the accident. Slowly realizing how complicated it would be to get ourselves out of California and back to Florida. At that moment the only person in California connecting us to the outside world was the manager of the Comfort Suites in Visialia. He told us not to worry that the facilities of the Inn, including fax, phone, and internet were at our disposal and if we had any requests he would take care of the personally. AND HE DID THAT AND MORE! With AJ's help we were reconnected to our insurance company, rental cars, and literally everything we needed to get ourselves underway and to our flight connections 200 plus miles away in San Francisco. We stayed with Comfort Suites of Visalia for two nights. Everything from the food to the maid service and beyond was "five star." It is unlikely we'll ever be back to Visalia California, but if you are passing through, perhaps on your way to Sequoia National Park, and if you need a wonderful place to rest your head, we definitely recommend you stop at Comfort Suites. -Dr Philip A.
