I stayed here one night last year and at the time this hotel had much better reviews (I believe it was in the top 10 in Fresno, otherwise I would not have stayed based on today's ratings). I needed a basic quiet place to stay and did not want to spend a lot. Booked directly with hotel. Check in was easy, front desk was friendly, and I was assigned a nice quiet room with afternoon sunlight streaming in. Right when I got in, I used the bathroom but it would not flush. I informed the front desk and was glad that instead of making me wait for someone to fix it, they gave me another room. I was greeted every time I left and returned to hotel. Although not terribly cozy, this hotel was sufficient enough (clean enough and VERY quiet, bright room) to meet my needs. Free parking, free continental breakfast. If I want more pampering, I would stay elsewhere but if you only need a place to sleep, this place is sufficient.

2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite. Chelsea at check in was great - friendly and full of useful info. She did mention the problems with cars being broken in to in the area and advised to remove all belongings. I don't see this as a hotel problem the fact there is some crime around. We left nothing in the car and didn't have a problem.
Rooms were fantastic and clean. Roomy and light with a great bathroom. Breakfast was very good as well and the hotel had a great hot tub and indoor pool.
All in all probably the best hotel of our trip through the southwest. I really can't understand some of the reviews on this site.

Have just returned from "The Golden Triangle" in the U.S.A. On our journey, we needed a one night accomodation in Fresno. So glad we chose the Contry Inn and Suites. This must be one of the best value hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with all usual facilities. Also included was a free buffet breakfast with bacon, sausages, eggs, waffles,cereals and many other items. Also, free coffee and home made cookies were available all day from reception. The hotel also had a great indoor swimming pool. Would definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone. What a pity we were only there for one night.

Found this Hotel on hotwire. The room was for two adults and one child and we expected two queen beds or one king bed and a sofa bed as was described on their website. When we arrived the room we were given was next to the elevator and had only a Queen bed. The room was maybe 150 sq feet with a single queen bed and a long narrow hallway that was behind the noisy elevator. When we called the front desk to remind them that we paid for a room with two beds the reply was a well rehearsed "But you have the Hotwire Room" and there is nothing we can do for you. They did send a small roll away up (see the picture). There was no room to open the bed as it nearly touched both adjacent walls and became a safety and a fire hazard... Of course we will never stay at or recommend this hotel. The room was only a little dirty but the bathroom still had someone elses old stinky wash cloth on the shower curtain and their was mold on the tub. The brekfast was every bit as bad as the other reviewers have stated. The rooms are also adjacent to a freeway and are very loud. The front desk employees both morning and day shift seem to be used to giving poor customer service and just don't care. It must me a corporate thing so I will avoid this chain in the future.

The hotel was hard to find. The room was not clean, floors were dirty, bed was not very well made. The air conditioner rattled ALL NIGHT. We went to breakfast room , after not sleeping all night to find watered down coffee. VERY POOR QUALITY food, stale baked goods, undercooked sausage, fresh fruit was NOT fresh. There was only one apple with a fingernail hole in it. Most of the food selection was gone and not replaced at 8 AM. The gym was too small to use, and was NOT AIR CONDITIONED.
The small indoor pool's murky water was not inviting. The whole place needed some fresh air. We travel often, and will never stay at COUNTRY INN & SUITES BY CARLSON AGAIN! HIGH SPEED INTERNET DID NOT WORK . Would not recommend this place to anyone.

This hotel is nice when you walk in. Depending on who is working, your experience at the front desk might be only ok, or it will be fabulous! The room we stayed in (two queen beds) was a decent size and beds were perfect. The internet worked great, no problems with connectivity. Our second night there, we decided to take advantage of the indoor pool. Yuck! It was very dirty and for the next four days, did not get cleaned. Not really sure how often the pool & hot tub get cleaned. The third day we were there, we rode the elevator to the out floor and immediately once we stepped out, smelled somone smoking pot. We informed the front desk, who came up and sprayed air freshener. That was how they took care of the problem. We did ask about doing laundry and were told about the two washing machines & dryers within the building. We got our laundry and started the two washing machines without a problem. Once our clothes were cleaned and wet, we put them into the dryer. No luck! The dryers (yes, both of them!) were out of order. Luckily, a great hostess was working the front desk. She helped us by putting our clothes into one of their huge dryers and we had dry clothes within 45 minutes.

There are other hotels in the area that you can get the same deals for. I would try those first!
