“Quaint, relaxing courtyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

A quaint inn with a decent courtyard. Rooms were adequately stocked and clean. The bed, comfortable and clean. Pricing reasonable. The paperwork required on check-in was odd--more signatures and initialing than my tax return!

The pricing on this hotel was very reasonable when compared to other hotels in this region. The rooms were clean and very well kept. The continental breakfast offered had more than enough to choose from. There was only one small major defect: Asking for the credit card when checking out. Reason: the room was paid for in advance, deductions made weeks ahead of time. Unless you over stayed there is no reason for billing you an extra 50.00 on your account. They need to leave my money alone. Because of this I had investigate and inquire about the extra charge on my bank statement. I did get my money put back days later. Why put the customer through this? what happens if you were on a budget and you need gas of food to continue your travel and these guys are holding your last 50.00 up?

Room Tip: Don't give them your credit card when checking out.

The front desk managers were abrupt and rude - two different ones. The others were not knowledgeable.
The rooms had a lot of space, generally clean and comfortable. Often found a dead bug about once/day.
They don't like long term stays - which is odd.
Has small fridge.
All single story - make sure you ask for a room not right on Shaw Avenue.
Pillows were awful - lumpy, inconsistent. Had to go buy new pillows.

The rooms were filthy four cockroaches..dead and alive. Dirty sheets, minimal bedding, red dirty carpet with someone's toenail clippings, toilet overflows. The front desk wasn't shocked by any of the information given..Would not move us. It was truly out of a horror show! I wish I would have stayed at a Holiday Inn or something similar. NEVER STAY HERE!! IT'S DISGUSTING!

Took over an hour to check... My company booked a room for 4 of us and they cover everything.. At check in they requested a personal credit card from each of us... After getting a manager and fighting about it I was finally able to check us using my company card.... Will never stay here again

Ya know what I hate? A hotel that posts hours for a bar or restaurant on the property, which then closes earlier than stated. When a hotel says the bar is open till 10pm. I expect the bar to be open till 10pm even if last call is 15-20 minutes earlier. But being turned away though the posted closing time is still 35 minutes out? Yeah, that sucks. I come to Fresno to visit family and after spending a day with them I need a stiff drink.

But the hotel is cheap. So it has that going for it. The look of it initially is that it is upscale, but lots of details show why they can give a rate so much below $100 when many other hotels are booked solid:
Rooms are musty smelling. Hot water has poor water pressure. Bathroom sink has weird aerator that sprays water on anyone standing in front of it. Very old thermostat took experimentation to get to a setting that suited us. No laundry service so no laundry bag in closet. Ice machines are few and far between. Plastic covered plastic cups. Basically, it's lots of little things. Oh, and only two employees smiled the entire 3 night stay.

A word on the Internet: It's an AT&T wifi hotspot with wildly inconsistent speeds and no password. At first I thought it was just bad (my utility was measuring it in bytes rather than kilobytes per second for two of the nights...felt worse than dialup) but speeds on a third night were more reasonable. I wouldn't call it "high speed" by a long shot. And I'd make sure to use a VPN while using it if I were you.

Honestly I would have given this place a 3 star because the bed was okay, pillows were hypoallergenic, breakfast buffet was free, and the housekeeping staff was very good, but I can't because, well, the bar closes early.

Room Tip: As others have mentioned, rooms facing Shaw Ave are not for light sleepers. 118 in the Sherwood buil...

I was pleasantly surprised at this very nice hotel. Check in was very easy. The room was spacious & very clean. They provided a complimentary breakfast at their on site restaurant which also served food until 9pm during the week. Accessing WiFi service there was very easy. My only complaint was the $50 check in fee to cover any damages etc which they assured me would be reversed off my credit card if there were no problems. I will definitely write another review if this does not occur. I booked through Priceline's special discount option & chose 3 star hotel. I think it was a great value. I would definitely stay here again & do recommend it.
