I haven't written a Trip Advisor review in a long time (I used to be so good about writing them but for the past year or so I haven't written a single one even though my husband and I still stay at a ton of hotels).
The Hampton Inn & Suites in Fresno (off Herndon) has inspired me to come out of 'review hibernation' and write a review because this hotel truly exceeded my expectations!
We travel to Fresno a few times a year to visit family and since Fresno doesn't have a Hyatt or W/Westin (which are normally our hotels of choice) we normally choose whatever hotel is the least expensive but in a nice area (North Fresno by River Park).
This Hampton Inn & Suites was the least expensive hotel in the area by about $20 a night. It looked ok online and got good Trip Advisor reviews.
When we arrived at the hotel I was impressed at the nice, well lit parking lot.
Check in was a breeze and the lady (Jessica) was extremely nice and helpful.
Even though it was over Labor Day weekend, we still were able to get our ideal room (quiet, high floor, away from elevator - we stayed in room 419).
We were impressed how clean and updated the rooms were! They had comfortable beds, a desk with chair, lounge chair, flat screen tv, microwave and refrigerator complete with a complementary bottle of water.
When we arrived we also helped ourselves to the fresh baked free chocolate chip cookies.
There were nice vending machines in addition to a gift shop (snacks, candies - I was impressed they had a large variety of TV dinners for the in-room microwave, toiletries, etc.) that was located in the lobby and open 24-hours! How convenient!
We were especially impressed with the complimentary breakfast! They had a huge selection and the nicest man (I forget his name) manning the breakfast area. There were plenty of tables and chairs to sit at as well as to store our luggage since we were eating before checking out. The food selection was extraordinary and better than most complementary hotel breakfasts! They had fresh make your own waffle station, oatmeal, bagels, toast, hard-boiled eggs, a large selection of cereals, fresh fruit, 2 different varieties of yogurt, flavored potatoes, sausage, omelets, and many different muffins and pastries. It was an impressive assortment and tasted delicious! The best part was that (unlike other hotels) we didn't have to book an upgraded room rate to get the complimentary breakfast nor be an elite Hilton member: the breakfast is free for everyone staying at the hotel!
Like I mentioned before, I was so impressed with this hotel that it inspired me to write a review on Trip Advisor despite not making the time to do so in over a year. This hotel was truly extraordinary at the best price in the area. When we come to Fresno we will stay here again for sure!
