“Refreshing change from chain hotels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

This hotel was undoubtedly built before property prices escalated. Located on the north side of Fresno, about 2 miles east of Highway 99, it is situated on about 7 acres. There are multiple one and two-story buildings spread out in a garden setting. Rooms are spacious. There is a dressing area as well as a large bathroom. Lighting is good. Windows open for fresh air. The room had a desk with 2 chairs, sofa-chair, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer and full length mirror.
There was an analog t.v. The climate control unit was extremely noisy, so much so that I had to turn it off to sleep. Absent was a refrigerator and microwave, though there was ample space for these items in the room.

The room was clean and well maintained, though the decor was decidedly 1960's.

Breakfast is included in the room rate, but the selection is very basic. The hotel has a restaurant, but it was closed on Sundays when I stayed there. There is an Italian restaurant across the street and some fast food restaurants about a block away.

There is plenty of free parking.

Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Tip: Some rooms at the front of the hotel face Shaw, which is very busy. Rooms toward the center and rear of the hotel have no traffic noise.

The Piccadilly Inn Shaw was a wonderful hotel, in a great area. There were about a dozen rooms in many stand alone buildings around the property and a two story building housing probably 3-4 dozen rooms. The rooms were fantastic! They charge to use the lobby computer????? Free happy hour in the afternoon-early evening was ok if you like spicy chicken, I don't. They also had fruit and cheese. Drinks were half off. Breakfast was nothing special. The scrambled eggs had no flavor and were solid. Juice, coffee, toast and sweet rolls. I've had better. Next time will go out for breakfast. But for the hotel we will certainly stay there again. We did get a great price on the weekend we stayed there.

We chose this place after carefully reviewing on Tripadvisor and other sources places to stay in Fresno. We thought we had chosen the most appealing place to stay but were disappointed. As we were driving back to Canada, it served as an okay stopover for one night.
Check-in was pleasant, friendly and quick.
The place has a pool, vending machines, laundry facilities, on-site restaurant and the “free” continental breakfast included bagels, eggs, muffins, bananas, juice and decent coffee The breakfast was hot, well stocked and area regularly monitored by staff.
Our king room was in the Eastbrook wing which was perfect for the pool, laundry and close to Olivers the on-site pub which we did not try out. We noted the loudly clanging gate of the laundry right next to the pool so it may be a good idea to avoid the Westbrook wing rooms which are opposite or next to this area.
The room was dated, spacious and on the ground floor just along from the pool which we noted needs tile work but was clean. The room had a table and two office type chairs, separate vanity and storage area outside of the bathroom.
Unfortunately, while the room itself was clean, the screen on the window desperately needed a good vacuuming and possible replacement (has it ever been vacuumed?). In addition, I woke in the night to hear dripping which we realized in the morning had been from the noisy air conditioner which we had turned off in order to sleep.
We noted a couple of shady looking folks in and around the inn and the fact that some guy let out a huge loud burp down the hallway from our room convinced us that next time we will skip Fresno and try Madeira, about 15mins drive away which has a Marriott Springhill Suites.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the clanging gate of the laundry area

It's not that the Piccadilly is a bad hotel, far from it; the rooms are spacious, the pool large and well kept. Upon our initial checkin we were given a room at the back of the property that smelled of smoke; when I contacted the office they moved us immediately meeting us at the new room with keys. So the service was polite and responsive, however, the property itself feels a little long in the tooth when compared to newer properties in the same price range.I might stay again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

AC issues, Water issues, lots of excuses. Asked to have management call me, never happened. I guess her list of call backs is that long.

I used to have a job that took me all over California, and I got to know Fresno fairly well. I've stayed at the Piccadilly Inn before, but this was in the early 1990's. I read the recent reviews on Trip Advisor and just want to confirm that the Piccadilly is still the comfortable place in which I used to stay. As the reviews stated, it isn't the newest place with all of the amenities, but that didn't matter to me. It was centrally located,very clean, extremely quiet and the room was just as comfortable as I remembered from my earlier stays. It's also a bargain rate for what you get. Most of all, though, the people who work at the Piccadilly were extremely friendly and eager to make your stay a comfortable one. I might have to return to Fresno again in the next month or so, and I'm ready to make the same reservation at the Piccadilly on West Shaw.

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet room off of the main street.

Clear room, fair price and decent breakfast.
Breakfast contained wafels, bagels, bananas and apples, coffe, orange juice, scramled eggs and some.
The reception was nice and pleasant.
As said room was clean as was the .bathroom. Our room with 2 queen beds was very spacious. The a/c was working very well.

The internet was slow on my iPad but good on the iPods don't know why.
We would stay here again
