Good up until the last minute

We had to be in Fresno on short notice, and being grad weekend at the Univ., there were not many rooms to be had. Got a great price on this hotel. They accommodated an early check-in, and the facility was nice. Breakfast was good, and the 24 hour coffee/tea is always a welcome touch. However, we somewhat overslept on the morning we were to depart, so I called the desk to confirm check-out time (11 AM) and request a late check-out. On a Sunday, the Fresno hotels seem to empty out, so I thought it would be a no brainer. Unfortunately, their policy is that, unless you are a member of their IHG rewards program, you cannot get a late checkout. As we were packing up and leaving, a staff member was rapping on all the doors with a key to hurry people up. And, to add a touch of sensitivity to an already tense weekend, the front desk called our room at probably 11:01 to ask why we hadn't checked out yet. We stay in enough mid-price hotels to know what is typical, and I feel that running everyone out of your hotel as if we are criminals is not warranted. The woman at the desk saw me taking a load of luggage to the car right around the time she was calling our room. The events of that morning ruined an otherwise pleasant hotel. Give me a break and get over yourselves. Your hotel isn't THAT special.

Tons of shopping around corner. I will suggest to use your car or catch a cab. Drive is about 3 to 5 minutes drive or 15 to 20 min walk to shopping and movie theater.

A good stop off!

We stayed one night on the way to Yosemite. Plan to stay on the side of the hotel facing away from the freeway and you will be happy campers, unless you like a view of the freeway from 100 feet away. Also, watch where you park as the irrigation sprinklers came on overnight and covered our new car with hard water deposits. We actually had to stop the next day to buy a special Windex to be able to wipe the car's windows clean.

Good Place to Stay

Nice, clean and conveniently located near River Park Shopping Center. Complimentary breakfast was very good including eggs & bacon and breakfast room was large (some are quite small & you trip over everyone else). During check in the young woman never looked at me once, just ran through the script and gave me our keys, which was kind of strange. Not sure if I would stay there again only because of the freeway noise, which was a bit loud, but the room was large and a very good value.

Nice Hotel

Nice hotel. Great staff, comfortable room. WiFi was intermittent and the air-conditioner had to be reset each night (The maintenance guy said they were in the process of replacing the air conditioners) but overall a nice stay.

From Rags to a Holiday... Inn

We started a ling trip and a friend just booked a very cheap run down hotel. The worst experience. We decided to cancel and I decided book Holiday Inn express. I have heard of its consistence in good service and clenliness. Sure enough the moment i stepped in to the Holiday Inn express we where able to smell the difference, yes smell. I checked in and went straight to the room, and without a doubt it was a refreshing place to just rest. I will from now on continue to look for Holiday Inn.
