Business trip nice very nice hotel and staff was OK alot of ammenities . overall treat experience

the hotel was taken over and is ran privately, not a part of the chain. when my group arrived our on smoking room smelled strongly of smoke. while we requested a room change (check in had just started) we were told we could get refunded but could not switch rooms. we were finally allowed to look at another room, which was next door and more acceptible. the bathroom only had 2 sets off towels (we paid for 4 people). the room was very no frills. when i went later in the evening to ask for cups (which they did provide) i started at the side door by the pool, and even though the people behind the counter saw me, they ignored me, so i had to walk around to the front of the building. then, in the morning, we, along with other occupants went to the continental breakfast (part of the reason i chose this place). the sign said breakfast at 6am, we were there at 6:30 am, and the door was locked. after ringing the bell we were allowed in but told breakfast was at 7 and it didnt matter what the sign said breakfast was at second. breakfast was coffess (not ready), milk, 2 types of cereal, and white bread. the juice machine was broken and no apologies were given. many of the people there, iincluding my group, were there for the state cross country meet. so im sorry to say overall this place was not a place i would ever go again. it has potential but not with the present management.

Rude check in, no English, locked INSIDE our room, smelled awful, unsafe neighborhood, bugs, terrible outside view, stray cats, proprietor eating and spitting food while "attempting" English, disgusting food offerings, we even refused to stay last night, has to spend extra for safety, homeless surrounding hotel, dog barking next door, picture on website was NOT what it looked like...A/C worked and that's all that was decent. Would really like refund but was on hold over 10 min x2 to speak to someone. Awful!

Good place for a simple night stay. Able to check in with no issues as well check out and great customer service.

I picked the cheapest hotel I could find on Blackstone. I should have spent a little more. The room smelled musty. The shower curtain was too short to reach across the shower. The electrical outlets were loose, and I needed to unplug the microwave in order to plug in the coffee pot. The trim on trhe bathroom mittor was falling off. The room was generally worn and in need of refurbishment.

This hotel has a beautiful pool and a cute breakfast area but seriously lacks in cleanliness. Our shower was dirty, especially the showerhead, and I mean dirt not hard water deposits. There were peanuts left on the floor from previous guests evidently. The carpet was not well vacuumed - there were quite visible specs of lint and food by the window and overall it appeared dirty. The location is good, there are several places to eat if you like fast food and there is a Hometown Buffet. It was also not far from the State track meet which we traveled from Los Angeles to see. Our key had to be scanned four times before it would open the door. We were located at the building farthest from the lobby, so we walked back and forth to have it rescanned each time, no apologies offered by the attendant and no offers from the attendant to come back with a new key, even after the second or even third attempt to unlock the door.

Very uncomfortable in many ways. At check in I would have walked out and gone somewhere else had the room not been previously purchased. Outdated decor as well as worn out beds. I always thought I couldn't go wrong with days inn but now I know better. If my wife would have been with me I would have rather slept in the car.

The front desk people was not friendly, and he received 3 complaining calls during my check in. About the room: amenities are old; tower smells bad; the wireless password is not working; and the phone in our room is not working, so I can't even call the front desk.

I expected "Days Inn" to be something less than a Hilton, but something more than this near flophouse. The clerk's demeanor was diffident at best, if not near surly. I had a hard time seeing the very very small room numbers from the parking spaces, so I had to get out of the car to locate my room before I knew where to park. The walls are paper thin, so the adjacent room's TV noise was unpleasant. The maid did not show up to re-make the room until almost 5pm for my second night (as if I had not learned my lesson from the first night). The second night was intruded by the bump-bump bed noise of the upstairs lovers. I could hear "everything". The bathroom sink looked filthy. It cannot possibly be cleaned properly because the enamel is etched and rough. The bed was hard. On the bright side, the sheets and towels were clean. The best thing about this Days Inn is that I now know which one to avoid in Fresno.

The area this hotel was in, combined with the lack of security (non locking doors to the outside where anyone could enter and dead bolt on room door not locking) left my son and I with a feeling of unease. I would not stay here again.

The bed was not good. The table in the room was positioned on the wrong side. It was difficult to find channels on the TV. Some trash wasn't picked up. Water consistently came out of the shower even though the curtain was pulled as tight as possible. The breakfast could have been better and gone on a little longer. However, it was very easy to get the Wi Fi up and running.

The "continental breakfast" was below standard. The hallway doors to the outside were open at all times, causing cold drafts to blow through the corridors (not to mention the security issues). The bed was excellent; the rest of the room was like a throwback to the 1990s. One end of an old towel bar remained in the shower -- a slip in the tub could have caused a nasty laceration. There are plenty of other hotels on Blackstone (Fresno's main drag); I'd choose any of them over this one next time.

This hotel was bustling with noise all hours of the night nearly every day. There was no security. If I were traveling alone, I would not have stayed there.

price tells you everything, remember where you are

it was great

Was driving to Yosemite from Phoenix.. that's a long drive so took a break and stayed in Days Inn for the night. They charged me 10$ extra for having an extra guest which i felt weird.. Bed was bad.. shaky and noisy.. Not enough towels in the bathroom... No iron box :-(.. Felt little expensive for the service they gave..

I felt deceived first by [...] for giving this hotel a 2star rating. It deserved no stars. We got there at 4pm, the ice machine was not working. I called the front office, they did not know, they said they would fix it. It was a 105 degrees. Then we got into the room, the AC could not handle the heat, never got cool. The Tub was pealing, the chairs had paint over them pealing, the bedspread was ripped. The whole place looked like a getto. They only serve continental breakfast at 6am, we got to it at 5:45AM they would not give us coffee. When we got back to our hotel about 5pm the next day, the AC was off, the Ice Machine was not working still and no bedsheets or towels were changed, I caught the cleaning lady and she said she did not even know that anyone was there, we sat and watched her do our room fro 30 minutes, She suspected the bottom floor was a welfare joint. We had asked for 1st floor when no one was even parked there, they said it was full. I went down stairs and the lights were dim, the carpet stunk of mold. This place was a dirty, filthy hotel. We were to tired and hot to switch and I had already pre-paid. If you like scum and filth (and oh yeah, my son got bed bug bites) go here and enjoy!

IT WAS A BUSINNES TRIP

I had but experience this time with this hotel I gat this hotel because Days Inn Hotel in Sacramento also in San Francisco are very good but in Stockton was a but experience because the building the room look like duty everything was duty including bed I lost money I got this hotel for 4 days I am stayed only one night and I moved to other hotel

When we checked in office smelled, tried to be open minded when we went to room, dirty carpets, lumpy pillows, stuff stuck to sink we went to another hotel after driving gor 6 hours!
