“Small but Comfy”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I have had the opportunity to stay at this location on a fairly regular basis. There are occasions that I have arrived in the morning, and if a room is available the front desk tries to let me check early. The staff is very friendly & they try to accommodate each guests needs within reason. As with the other reviews, the breakfast is nothing to write home about, but on the other hand they do offer a continental breakfast which some motels do not. The location is convenient as it is just off HWY 41(no noise from highway); 2 miles away from good shopping & restaurants, very close to Fresno State Univ., and a short distance from the SaveMart Center. I keep returning for the employees who are great.

Room Tip: If you have a room close to the pool area, sometimes it can get loud if there are a lot of younger p...

Stayed at this hotel due to a detour on a tour, to avoid Yosemite fire. The hotel is weary to say the least. The room was basically furnished with furnishings and decor we'll worn. Breakfast, which was included, was what you might call minimalist and lacked even bread/toast. Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Don't bother

This is a very basic hotel. The beds were clean, but bed spreads were stained. First room didn't have fridge or microwave. They moved us without any issues when we asked for those items. EE's are not happy with owners. They complained owners didn't care about hotel.

The maintenance of the room and hotel in general was poor. The rooms smelled musty and was in poor condition. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The continental breakfast was just ok and did not have healthy options. The staff was friendly, hotel needs some TLC and updating. Would not stay here again for the price, we expected better from a Ramada.

I will never visit this hotel again. Our door was locked from inside, even when there was nobody in the room (staff admitted that this happened more often). Breakfast was the baddest I have ever seen in the USA, even when we were prepared for the worst 'continental' breakfast. Thereby the air-conditioning was so noisy that we woke up every 5 minutes, sleeping without wasn't an option due to the weather conditions that period, it was extremely hot. And were did they buy those TV's which were in the room?!

I really wanted to like this place due to location and the first impression upon checkin was not bad. Once you get to your room that's where the fun begins it's 108 out on a typical fresno evening and the room won't cool down beyond 98 degrees the maintenance man was great but couldn't perform magic on the outdated ac. The room itself needed new carpets, a tv from this decade, and a coffee table. Scary clientele the first place in a long time that I actually felt my car might not be in the parking lot when I checked out. Then comes breakfast this place calls a hot breakfast toast and those $.99 waffles one of the worst breakfast spreads I have seen. There was a German tour group staying at the hotel and I actually felt I should tell them this is not a typical American hotel. This place needs a major overhaul and if I got the room at $50 like some of the others through discount websites I guess it would feel a little better but $100 from Ramada's website feels like a ripoff. I almost forgot about the wifi it's like that internet service you first got on dial up back in the 80's its so slow I couldn't log on to my company's email server or VPN. My suggestion would have all Ramada managers spend the night do all their daily work on hotel wifi, swelter in the room, and finish it off with a toast breakfast.
