This place was EXCELLENT when it was Picadilly Inn. I enjoyed the first time I stayed in this hotel. NOW???? What the hell happened? I know it has to be new management. I stayed in the room and the accomodations were ok. Some of the fixtures were old. They didn''t change the bed linens after I left. This really shocked...

I had stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and had found it clean and an excellent value, so I was surprised by how much things had gone downhill. The bathroom has black mold around the tub, the doors are scuffed. The fitted sheets on the beds are so small they don't cover the sides of the mattress...

We stayed at this hotel recently while on our business trip to Fresno. I will get straight to the point as we didn't spend too much time here: Pro: Good size and spacious rooms, swimming pool, basic amenities Con: Very noisy, old I would not classify this hotel as family friendly but it is a good place to stay if...

We had our wedding reception 2 weeks ago in the beautiful Grand Ballroom. Seng, Brandi and the rest of the staff are amazing. They created a magical evening for us and our 300 guests. The decor was beautiful, the staff was very helpful, the food (chicken marsala) was delicious and our over all experience was GREAT! We had many out...

I had several issues with my stay at this hotel, starting with when I rolled over to turn off the bedside lamp and found a flea sharing sharing my pillow. I killed it, but it was too late, it had already bitten my neck. I convinced myself it was just an unfortunate leftover from a four-legged guest and examined the...

Thought it was great. Best Jacuzzi I've ever been in!! Not sure why, but the phone in our room rang twice with no one on the line. The second time was at 2am! We visited the Jacuzzi twice but the second time, there were no towels. We had to go back to the room dripping all over.

It is a perfectly fine, clean hotel. However, it does need to be refurbished and little repairs done. If you are at all picky about things being done right then this place will make you unhappy. Details were missed such as, vacuuming the stairwell and badly hung shower curtain. I showed up for late check-in and was informed that the...

Quite a large establishment with very large rooms. Clean bed and bathroom. Comfortable nights sleep. Free parking and wi-fi. 24 hour reception was handy as we were driving until late in the night. Priced reasonably.

We were a family of 2 adults and 3 older children.We had 1 overnight stay at the University Square hotel and had a OK experience. We always check for bedbugs and found nothing. The beds were very good to sleep. Rooms and bathroom were clean. They offered an American breakfast, which was OK.
