    That we only stayed one night!

    Well my wife and I booked a room which we thought was a king room and the confirmation we got was that it was a king room, but when we got into the room we found out otherwise. As we were checking in the attendant could not find our booking and even questioned if we had the right hotel which we did! So after 5 mins of constant coughing and sniffing by the attendant he finally found my booking, yay! He said everything was in order and gave us directions to the room, sweet we thought. Once we walked into the room we saw that it was a double queen room, hang on a minute that is not what we ordered. So I went back to the reception and asked the dude what was up? He proceeded to tell me that all the kings were booked yes I said I know I booked one. He proceeds to tell me they are over booked. Well I say couldn't you have told me that when I booked it or at the very least when you are checking us in? ah ah ah aaaa, you booked through a third party he tells me. So do I get a discount as I thought I was paying for a king and now we (both of us over 6 feet tall) are in a queen? No he says but you can cancel your booking and find another hotel with a king. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!! We just got into town, we are from out of town and have to be at a concert in an hour what are we supposed to do? Long story short we stayed the night and ate the worst buffet breakfast we had ever had and got the hell out of Fresno.

    The Desk staff at check in and check out were slow, abrupt and seemingly burdened by our presence. 25 min check in process with reservations and 20 minute check out that was not correct and had to be done twice. We were not the exception. I waited in a line of 2 people for 40 minutes just to he helped.

    The desk staff was incompetent and slow... 40 minute wait in the middle of the day to check in. Once helped it took another 20 minutes and we had reservations?

    The location was great. Driving in Fresno seems to just take ages to get anywhere meaningful, and this one is off the freeway far enough that you're close to real stores, real food, etc. This made it really convenient and quick for us to get where we needed to be. Staff was good, helpful, friendly. Bed was VERY comfortable.

    The place was just a bit grubby. There was mold or mildew in the heater, so when it blew, you got the smell. There was, what looked like, a pee stain on the curtain--right where a dog might have lifted its leg. My wife says it was coffee. A stain, nonetheless. Blankets on beds were summer-cotton only. Not super good in the dead of winter. The breakfast is fake eggs, ran out of sausage, and sort of standard hotel bagels. The good was good, but the bad was bad. I'd stay here again if the price point was lower. As it is, they're charging the same price as the Courtyard MArriott, but the courtyard marriott is just better.

    I liked everything except there was a loud noice coming from our bathtub in room #159 i believe our room was might have been 157 other than that it was comfortable and great!

  • Group of friends

    Friendly staff. Large rooms. Very comfortable beds. Nice and quiet. Great shower with double head.

    Well, I don't have anything to complain about. The few things that I would have preferred are a more diverse continental breakfast (but I can say this about most places I stay), and the pillows could have been larger. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to others.

    It was close to the University where our granddaughter was graduating and next door to Marie Callendars.
