This conveniently located hotel has a little age on it but is still a very nice place for the amount of the rooms. They offer a hot breakfast buffet every morning, free Wi-Fi, a large swimming pool, a hot tub, and a laundry room for guest. There are many restaurants in the area some within walking distance. I will stay...

This is a budget hotel ($69) right across from Fresno State, so I'm staying here for the 2nd time. The hotel, once nicer, has been allowed to decay and is now quite shabby, but that's fine with me if the room is clean and comfortable and all the amenities work. The room is very spacious and seems clean, no problems...

Found myself in Fresno unexpectedly and it was getting late so had to find a place to just crash for the night. Looked around and prices were more than expected for the area. Didn't want to crash at the Motel 6 so I gave this place a shot. The outside, hallways and hallways are a bit dingy and dated. The...

This hotel was recommended to me. I was in town on business for one night. After reading reviews, I was skeptical but hopeful. I should have listened to my years of travel experience.....Tips on this hotel are: 1. Do not look under the bed and you won't be grossed out. We did find an old sleeping bag along with unidentifiable...

This was a one night stay between Long Beach and Yosemite. The rooms were large and clean with a spacious bathroom. (Check out the telephone in the bathroom!) We didn't have the opportunity to use the pool but it looked clean. We had a good night's sleep but someone arrived late at night and the noise from their entry did...

This place was average. The continental breakfast was good. It was clean and worth the price. We were on our way back to Yosemite and Fresno was almost half way back to Los Angeles and this place was the most reasonably priced. Secure parking lot also.

It's ok hotel. Location is very good when it is just stop over. Rooms are clean and large. Staff is very friendly. The worst thing about this hotel is a breakfast, which is free but not tasty at all. The hotel have a swiimming pool and jacuzzi, nice and clean.

If you plan on sleeping, find a different hotel. Walls are paper thin and parties in rooms nearby until after midnight kept me and my family awake. Then, the staff started vacuuming the halls at 7:00 a.m. Really? My kids were spooked by the nasty stares from a woman behind the counter when we checked in. Thankfully, the manager helped...

I have stayed here four times and it is consistently one of the best deals for minimal price from booking agency or by calling hotel direct. Right across from Cal State Fresno at Shaw and Cedar.

The staff was very welcoming at checkin and breakfast. The hotels is located next to UC in Fresno. The rooms are a mix of newer and older items. The beds were aging as did the fittings of the bathroom. Air conditioning was getting loud. WiFi Internet works very well. We booked a last minute stay in this motel, yielding a...
