Though the property was not fancy, it was very clean. It had well kept grounds and was easy to access from the Interstate. The pool was clean and the water clear as well. The only negative was needing to ask for towels at the front desk. We traveled with our adult children to see family and all of us used the internet with no lag, which was awesome compared to other locations we have visited. This location was a good choice for the price. We would visit again.

Room was clean but outdated. Location was good. Parking was free. Breakfast was poor but ok.

Well maintained hotel located in a very good location with many stores around within walking distance. Hotel staff is very nice and welcoming too :)

I booked the room online which I had a choice of one queen or king so I request a king bed since I was with my mom. When I got to the hotel I asked if we can have 2 queen beds, first he said I need to pay extra and I said if you have one with the same rate is good otherwise no. He talked to another person and he gave us 2 queen beds. The room was very spacious and the beds very comfortable and everything looked clean and nice the only thing I didn't like was the bathroom, the toilet was very small like kids toilet and everything was old you could tell was an old hotel but breakfast was good. Overall I was happy with my stay and definitely rommend this hotel, by the way the people were in the breakfast area were not friendly.

Comfortable bed & pillow, room was clean, convenient location.

Right on freeway 41, which is good for location- it's safe, centrally located, convenient. But bad since half of the rooms face it(the windows were thick but the sound got through), the pool is right up against the freeway, I can't imagine that would be pleasant to be out there.

The staff was very helpful with directions. The hotel and our room were exceptionally clean. The location was perfect for our needs. Kudos for the girl keeping the breakfast counters full and clean.

The front desk staff was GREAT! Very helpful. I checked in super late and had NO problems. The room was amazing and everything was nicely placed. The only thing that was a bit sad was that the window was so dirty so I couldn't see the freeway lol not a huge problem but clean windows are better:)

It was a good stay for one night. Not much around the area except office buildings or medical park.

Didn't spend much time at the hotel, due to work commitments. But we were satisfied with the overall atmosphere.

You get what you pay for. However, the pool surprisingly lacks lounge chairs.

Hotel is in nice neighborhood and very clean. Unfortunately it built next to the major highway and at night we hear cars. We had good time, hotel and room was clean with friendly staffs. Price was fare.

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.

It has changed since my last stay. Quality has dropped. Had a few cockroaches in the bathroom

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.
