    « Comfortable and convenient! »

    I stayed here for five days on business and had a very comfortable stay. The hotel is pet friendly and provided ample area for doggie walks. The location is convenient to many restaurants and shops. My room was spacious and clean with modest decor. My bed was very comfortable and made it a challenge to get out of! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The best part of my stay was the breakfast buffet! Tandra, who I spoke to every morning was a delight! She has such a lovely smile and just made me start off my morning happy! Besides that, she keep the breakfast area stocked with a variety of delicious dishes. When I back in town on business, I will stay here! Hopefully, Tandra will be there to make me smile!

    « Good stay, noise from early morning delivery woke me up »

    May want to reconsider scheduling food delveries, noise woke me up, was woken up at 430 am, staff was helpful sand offered to let me have a late check out. Food selection for Breakfast. Would prefer real eggs over that constituted egg stuff

    « Home away from home. »

    During my transition from my home being sold and trying to find another home, I stayed at the Best Western Village Inn Fresno, This is by far the most cleanest hotel on Blackstone avenue. The entire staff is very friendly and personable. Keep up the Great Job..

    « Comfortable Beds, convenient area »

    We booked this hotel based on the close location to a concert venue we were going to. The hotel was easy to get to, and the surrounding area was convenient with easy access to food and a Starbucks (always a plus). The beds were comfortable and overall the room was clean. The bathroom was a little dingy, but it wasn't anything worth a negative review or not staying at again. The breakfast was good, and there was plenty of food, even towards the time of breakfast ending. We would stay here again.

    « Usual B W Village Inn standards. »

    If you haven't got your own transport this hotel location appears to be in a bit of a run down location near an even more rundown shopping mall. Local restaurants that can be walked too, especially at night are very limited though there was a Denny's next door that was more than satisfactory with very helpful staff. The cooked breakfast at BWVillage Inn was very good with varied choices.

    « Good weekend rate. »

    Very friendly front desk staff. They were accommodating on a special request to be closer to family in another room. Room was clean. Beds were comfy. One complaint, hot tub wouldn't get hot, or even warm. Otherwise, good stay for the money. Not perfection, but I would stay again if in town.

    « Between Average and Very Good »

    The lobby looked very nice, and the room was clean. The neighborhood seems rough, but I imagine that is a factor to the lower cost than the other Best Westerns in town. A helicopter circling overhead and someone (assuming it was someone in the helicopter) talking on a loudspeaker woke me up at midnight. I kept checking the window to make sure my truck was still safe outside (it was). Otherwise, the hotel itself was ok. I stayed in the first building, where the lobby is. No elevator, so be ready and able to carry your own stuff up stairs if you get a 2nd floor room. The walls between the rooms were thick enough and blocked sound well, but the door or wall to the hallway was too thin, so the sounds from the hallway or even the room across the hall were very loud. The breakfast selection is good with hot breakfast items, but they're all crammed in too small a space, making for long wait times to get the food you want.

    Stayed here on 3 different occasions and it has been nice all of them. Friendly service clean and nice rooms, nice pool. Breakfast buffet is very good comparing to other hotels in this price range! Free parking, WiFi is not the best at night. Lots of food round the corner.

    « excellent experience »

    We stayed only two night but had a wonderful experience. The staff were cordial and friendly. The breakfast was pleasant with staff that greeted everyone and made sure food supply was ample, The hotel was clean and easily accessible to highways and many restaurants and shopping.

    « Located in the centeral valley, a good place to stop over. »

    I have been staying at this Best Western at least 30 or more times in the last 4 years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The Breakfast service is always excellent. I would not stay anywhere else in the area. It is an excellent value for your money.

    « pleasantly surprised »

    I haven't been in Fresno in years. When i saw the location of the hotel I was concerned. Not the best neighborhood/a lot of transients. The hotel provided a nice staff, clean-up to date rooms and a security guard. My worries were put to rest. We had a nice quiet stay. Thank you.

    « Their customer service is severely lacking »

    The price was ok, the room was clean (although, I did see a few bugs - YUK). Not a great neighborhood, but you need a key to get into the buildings, so there's that. I didn't expect much for under $100, and that's pretty much what I got. We accidentally left my husband's shirt hanging in the closet. Called as soon as we realized (10:18 pm on the day we checked out). I was told it would be in the lost and found and that was locked up so we needed to call after 8am. My husband called just after 8am and was told to call back later. He called again around noon, and Richard told him he would call him back. Hearing nothing, my husband called again just before 2pm. At that time, Richard told him that they didn't find his shirt. So then I called and asked for the name of the manager and I was told it was Angela. I had Richard on the phone and he said he was just going to call my husband and let him know that he could call Angela and "maybe she can do something". I told him that I didn't understand why it is taking so many phone calls (this was call number FIVE) to locate a shirt. He told me that they didn't find the shirt or our hangers, and I told him that I wasn't concerned with the hangers, it was the over $40 Under Armour polo shirt that I wanted back. He said that it wasn't there and he didn't know what else to tell me. He said, "nobody here steals, I've been here for over 4 years..." and I told him that we didn't THINK we left the shirt, we KNOW we left it (because we both forgot to double check the closet before we left). So it's either still in the closet, or someone took it. He told me that he didn't need my attitude, so I asked him how I was supposed to reach Angela (the manager). He said that I just call the number I had just called (when I got him). I asked when she would be in, and he said that she was there, but she was outside with the pool guy. I asked him to take my number and have her call me back when she gets back in and he again told me that he didn't need my attitude. I told him that I just wanted to speak to the manager, and he said that he didn't have to put up with me. I asked him if I needed to call Best Western corporate and he said to call whoever I wanted, "go ahead!". So I have called Best Western and filed a formal complaint. I am told the manager should be calling me back, but I'm not holding my breath. UPDATE: MIRACULOUSLY, after I got off the phone with Richard (and while I was on the phone with Best Western customer care), Richard called my husband to tell him that they had finally located his shirt. HMMMMMMMM..... where was it that whole time??? When asked, Richard claimed that it wasn't in the room. My husband pointed out to me that not once was he asked what the shirt looked like (color, style etc) - although I did mention (phone call # 5) that it was an Under Armour shirt. We have someone going to pick up the shirt for us (since we obviously don't live there), hopefully we actually get it back. Bottom line is that while you will get a bed here, if you are looking for decent customer service, this place doesn't have it. FIVE phone calls to the hotel, ONE to BW Customer Care to file a complaint and finally ONE call received back from the hotel. I'd still like to speak to the manager, better yet whoever is in charge of this property.

    « Great stay with dog »

    Only stayed one night passing through with dogs, but overall good quality for the price. Clean room, acceptable potty area for the dogs. I did clean up some dog poo that was not from my dogs, so it would be better if it was checked. Check-in and out staff were very nice and welcoming. Would stay again.

    « Nice suprise »

    Front desk Jacob was so professional. My room had every thing we needed. Large room comfy bed and couch. Bath room was clean. Close to everything. Breakfast was great. Nice deal on Groupon! When we come back to Fresno this will be my 1st choice!

    « Great Value »

    This hotel was nice, clean, had a great breakfast, the staff was very friendly. The pool area was very nice, the spa was not heated at the time and that was the only bummer at the time. We had thought about staying with a different Best Western, but the price of the other one was very high so that is why we picked this one, plus it was close to the family we would be visiting.

    « Ok »

    Stayed for a short overnighter. Very helpful receptionist. Room was near to the pool area, small but clean. Pool was small but perfectly formed and busy, even though it's in the car park. It is was quite far out of Fresno city centre.

    « Centrally Located »

    My daughter, granddaughter and I were there to participate in a softball tournament at the Buchanan Softball Complex in Clovis. The hotel staff was excellent, friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast was good and had a wide variety of items each day we were there. The rooms were clean and a good size since we had many pieces of luggage plus softball equipment to share our room with. The pool area was clean and well maintained. The only drawback for us was no elevator and/or laundry facilities. After doing laundry in two other locations, we found a brand new laundromat only three blocks from this facility which did not show up on our GPS. The location was great and only three exits from the softball complex. We enjoyed our stay and the people that work there made it special.

    « Excellent, Pet-Friendly Hotel »

    We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 20 years and have always found it to be one of the best in the chain. The rooms are larger than most, the beds and pillows are very comfortable, the bathroom is large. The location is close to the N & S crosstown freeway. The breakfast menu is amazing! The personnel are the best! The rates were wonderful. We were in town to visit a critically-ill family member; we stayed seven nights. It was very comforting to retreat each night to our excellent room. It is very pet-friendly with a special area for the pets to walk and "do their business."

    « Great hotel »

    We booked this hotel while we were driving - should have booked it directly through Best Western rather then the "site" that came up on my phone - nightly rate would have been less. Will remember for the next time. :) Reception personnel were very helpful with directions to our destination. Rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable.

    « EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS »

    The Best Western Village is got to be the most friendliest staff I have ever seen in a hotel. The breakfast items are better that most continental breakfast at other hotels. I was staying at the hotel for a few weeks due to family emergency. The compassion of everyone that works at the hotel was so helpful to me during this difficult time. keep up the great work.

    « Don't visit if you want a good sleep »

    Let's start with the good points 1. The breakfast is very good, and complimentary which is a plus. There is also a Denny's right next door. 2. Location is good, with the movies, Fair Fashion mall and Starbucks etc nearby. 3. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Bad points 1. Staff, whilst friendly, are not helpful in the slightest. Our room was situated next to the pool, which we initially thought was a bonus. However there was a huge party at the pool during one of our nights, where there was music blaring and people shouting and screaming at one another- the area was packed. We decided to go out to the cinema at night to get a bit of peace and quiet, however when we returned, the party had gotten bigger and more rambunctious. This continued on into the night, until police sirens went off and an ambulance and police car arrived. I thought this would stop the party, however despite police intervention the party continued, with people running and screaming up and down the corridor still. We called reception and complained, who said they would sent security to break up the party, however surprise surprise nobody turned up so the yelling, singing and music continued. The noise level in general is off putting, as we could hear every single person enter and leave the building, even through the night. Will not be back.

    « If you want to feel SAFE, DO NOT STAY HERE. »

    When we arrived, there was a HUGE group at the pool having a party. They literally had table clothes on all of the tables and had so many people in the small area that the children were unable to swim and we did not feel comfortable/safe allowing them to enter the area with so many people. The location we were in felt very unsafe (we went to a Walgreens just up the block and someones car was broken into in broad daylight). I have never seen a hotel barricade in their employees in in order to keep them away from customers, we literally had to speak with the night staff through a glass window similar to that of a bank teller at a drive-thru window. Throughout the hotel there are multiple signs reminding you of safety and every single door requires key access (even in the hallways), although most of them did not work and the doors were left open and unlocked. Prior to booking we were told that the hotel provided roll-away beds upon request to their guests, NOT TRUE. Our family of 5 had to sleep in 2 very small queen 2 beds! The rooms had recently been updated (supposedly), but were extremely outdated and felt like we were in a very low grade motel (I cannot imagine what they were like prior to the 'updates'). I have had good experiences in the past with Best Western hotels and this was so disheartening and disappointing. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone looking for quality, security, and comfort.

    « Very good, clean and reasonably priced hotel. Neighbourhood not so good. »

    Great staff here. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. Good sized room. Very clean. Good selection of items at breakfast and always well replaced. However, they were not the best quality. Good value at this location. Easy on and off the freeway so good location. Internal corridors so felt safe inside the hotel. It's located next door to Denny's and we ate there one evening. When we left Denny's to walk back to the hotel there were 2 men begging for money in the Denny's parking lot. Felt intimidated. The next morning we drove to the petrol station opposite the hotel and as we filled up there were a couple of people rummaging through the dumpster. you had to cross the parking lot to enter the pool. No elevator.

    « Nice place »

    Really good price for a nice motel. Room was nice and clean. Air Conditioner cooled off the room quick ( it was 105 degrees). Blackout curtains were great. Breakfast was really good...omelet, bacon, sausage, waffle, oatmeal and so much more. If you are older you might want to request a downstairs room since there is no elevator but I like being upstairs for the noise issues so it was not a big deal to walk stairs. It was full but did not here noise. Didn't use the pool but saw there were people enjoying it.

    « Great stop over on our roadtrip. »

    Found hotel easily and was warmly greeted at reception by Fernando, swiftly booked in along with advise as to where to find a nice restaurant. I always maintain that the first contact at reception will define the hotels ethos. Room was perfect the air conditioning was spot on as temps were 95f+ We used the small pool which was well maintained and towels were provided by the hotel. The room was clean bed comfortable and everything worked so no complaints there. Breakfast was great, hot food scrambled eggs, bacon etc. a good choice of cold food as well. One member of staff worked like a Trojan cleaning up and replenishing the food, (I believe his name is John) a credit to this establishment and hope management will pass on my comment to him. All in all, an excellent hotel to stay on our road trip, thanks to all involved.

    « Perfect! »

    This was a great location to stay in. Neighborhood wise, not positive about, but close to the airport. The rooms were clean, comfortable, AC was cold, and the internet good. Breakfast was awesome and had a huge selection. I would stay here again for sure.

    « Would stay again...but »

    This place was pretty much everything it says it is and most of the reviews are correct. It is an excellent value and the service was awesome. The breakfast was much better than the cold continental at some places. The rooms were very nice and up to date. The only real issue I had and the reason I could not give more stars was the fact that the hot tub was not working and apparently had not been for some time.

    « My Stay here At Best Western »

    I have had a lot of pressure relief just by staying the nights here at this hotel I was able to have a piece of mind in a long time here alone with my family and I. I hope there are other locations else wher that offer these same services in the near future cause my next stop is yosimite and Miami, Fl.

    « Drinking drugs and parties »

    We stayed only one night and there was a gentleman smoking pot in the parking lot when reported he was still there, nothing was done. Then shortly afterwards the party at the pool started with a lot of people drinking, screaming and the door to the hotel left open so there was no secuirty. I definitely would never recommend this place nor would I ever go there agian, i would sleep in my car in a walmart parking lot first.

    « Always Good »

    Never a bad stay at Best Western. Breakfast a good PLUS. Beds are comfortable. Ice machines should be larger for faster service. Back to Breakfast, It had all the stuff for a real satisfying meal. Eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, fruit, pancakes, waffles, and much more.

    « Business Trip »

    The Hotel is about Avg. The rooms are a little small. Bed is a little firm for me. However , my partner liked it. Walls are thin. You will be able to hear what is going on in the room next door. The air Co works great! I was cool the whole time. It was 104 outside on that day. The showers were nice. Lots of room. There were a couple of spots on the carpet that needs to be either re-places or repaired. The furniture is okay too. There was a lot of kids that were running around on that day. I think this place would be great for families with kids.

    « Good breakfast »

    I stayed for a night on way home from Sequoia. I drove by Motel 6 and Travelodge not far away but it didn't seem too safe. Both motels had people loitering in parking lot who did not look like they were staying in the hotel and seem to be drinking. With no hall ways between room and parking lot, I wasn't about to risk some drunken person trying to crash into my room. Not to mention possible noise from these parking lot party goers. Best Western was bit more tucked in with no one loitering in the parking lot, although there was a gathering in the pool. It was quite with exception of being able to hear people talking as they walked by and very faint train noise. Room was clean. Everything except for one lamp was in working order. Breakfast was great. There were waffle, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, bread, muffin, bagel, scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast sausage, oatmeal, juice, milk, coffee, almond milk, soy milk, tea. I would recommend booking early since on website it was quoted 95ish with tax but from front desk I was charged 124 including tax. Big difference. There are Dennys, MacDonald, Carls Jr, donut shop right in walking vicinity.

    « Cockroaches, smoke, and wrinkled clothes »

    The first room had a strong odor of cigarette smoke, although the hotel was billed as a non-smoking property. We found a cockroach in the second room we were moved to, The iron in the room did not work, so we were forced to go out with wrinkled clothes.

    « Convenient for long drive »

    This Best Western was quick and easy and pet friendly, which was good for us traveling with our dog. However, the neighborhood is depressed and the parking lot a bit shabby and the room had a weird odor. But the housekeeping staff gave us some Fabreeze which fixed that. The beds were fresh and comfortable but the carpet had a spot or two.

    Recently booked three rooms for a wedding and had a wonderful experience . In particular Angela who was a very friendly and helpful woman was very attentive in the breakfast room and as well at the front desk. The housekeeping staff was proficient and accommodating and had each room in a state of cleanliness .The breakfast was very well prepared and well served with hot food, assorted breads and pastries and waffles and yogurt,eggs,sausage, bacon, and cereal to name a few. Every need the breakfast room, the front desk , and housekeeping was superlative and I definitely will revisit this hotel if I am ever in the area again

    « Why does front desk changes every day? Service is patchy ! »

    Overall a satisfactory stay particularly comfortable bed and hearty breakfast but certain areas can be improved? 1. parking - the hotel has 2 blocks and if you are wanting to check in at front desk you might not find a 5 min zone to attend to initially check in. This is inconvenient as the car park could be near full 2. daily change of front desk . I stayed a couple of nights and met at least 4 receptionists and quality of attendance is inconsistent. GM did not bother to reply to my complaint of not being charged a concessionary rate (AAA) despite offered by front desk at request. 3. security door on 2nd block was left unlocked a couple of occasion. guess they cannot afford a security officer patrolling the premises. if you have family with young daughters, the lapses might give you a chill 4. wifi is erratic Other than above, the other hotels in same class elsewhere in Fresco could be more pricey.

    « Did Not Plan It »

    We left the National Park a bit late and ended up here. I searched for A BW before our trip started, so we called on route. Everything worked out- we had time for wine and cheese--refreshed ourselves--asked staff for dinner places. They did not have much to offer. So we left on our own. The night was comfy. The breakfast adequate and checkout smooth. The new renovations are progressing and really are improving the property.

    Great place with decent price and it has great service and decent rooms compared to some other Best Western hotels and other similar star rating hotels. Breakfast, however, is not as great.

    The room is clean and the beds were comfortable. The highlights were friendly staff and the wonderful selection for breakfast. The bacon strips were crispy, thin, and light on grease. The breakfast staff were helpful, friendly, and efficient. They worked hard and I really appreciate their kindness. I wished I could have left a large amount for tips.

    « In Fresno, we got that indo »

    What do you expect from staying in a place like Fresno? I did not like NOT having a gym on grounds. There are no In-Shape nor 24-Hour Fitness gyms nearby so I risked my life by running laps around a nearby park. There is a pool, but swimming in a cold outdoor pool when it is 70F outside is not appealing. Blackstone Avenue is a strip of restaurants, stores, malls, and various commercial centers. There is plenty to do, but I am hesitant to experience the nightlife in that environment (and I used to enjoy going to El Flamingo de Stockton).

    « Expected more for the money »

    Stayed two nights in February for business. Good: Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and an ok size. Buildings are secure and staff is friendly. Fine continental breakfast. Bad: Hallway smelled like smoke. Lighting was poor. TV was grainy. Sagging sinking chairs and lack of electrical outlets made it hard to work on laptop. Hot water in room wouldn't get hot enough. Pool was cold and hot tub was broken. My room (#21) was across from a parking lot that was a party hangout for local kids. Lots of noise. I'm sure there are worse places, but it's been a while since I've had an experience like this for over $200.

    Bacon, Sausage, Taco's and waffles, need better gluten free options like cereal and the ingredient of potatoes, best selection I've ever seen. Pool was clean and rooms are new, great hotel. Hotel staff went out of the way to accommodate us, Joe Boike.

    The place is located on the east side of town. Easy access to food, entertainment, and close to the airport. It has a swimming pool, and a continental breakfast. If you don't like that then theirs a Denny's right next door. The room was very clean, had a refrig and coffee pot. Bathroom was spacious.

    « Clean, Nice Staff »

    We had two rooms while visiting family, one with a king and one with two queens. The two queen room was much larger and faced a small grassy area, while the king faced the parking lot. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was coffee and oranges and apples in the office for guests. Breakfast was included and was surprisingly good, served from 6 to 10 am. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows, although plentiful, were lumpy and unsatisfactory. We were both cold during the night, and there was no extra blanket. There was shampoo and conditioner, but no lotion, which is what I really needed the most. The rooms were clean and in good shape, but appeared to have been decorated in the 1970s. The best thing about the room was the bathroom. It was modern, large, and the tub/shower was delightful.

    « Couldn't check in »

    When I got there, no place to park! When i finally parked I was trying to check in but no one opened the night registration window. I waited for about 15 min when a security guard showed up and informed me the night auditor was gone for lunch. The guard said the auditor would be back in about 15 more minutes but never showed up! I was very tired and just trying to sleep. So I left but worse case scenario all the hotels in the city are sold out because of the AG expo. I went back to the hotel and the auditor wasn't there yet!!!! WHAT A LONG LUNCH. Now I'm stuck here sleeping in my truck! Very mad, I wouldn't recommend this place especially if you're trying to check in at night.

    No hot water for my 2 day visit , room smelled like sewage , killed 2 roaches in the bathroom , curtains had cat claw holes in them , internet was spotty and choppy in and out ... I was offered $20 off the room price for the lack of hot water ... Still wasnt worth the price ...

    « Poorly maintained room and difficult amenities »

    January 2016 traveling with pets, I'd made a reservation at a budget friendly motel which was awful, so using a map I found this Best Western. The area was much better and the grounds looked promising. I drove through the parking lot to scope out the buildings, it looked just fine. I parked and went to the night window. I asked for a room in a specific wing, I think there were 3. Understandably, there was only one wing set aside for pet friendly rooms. So I asked if I could see a room prior to checking in. A kind security guard escorted me to two different rooms, they both looked clean, well-appointed and well kept. I wanted a room with a single queen bed, but there was only one available on the side of the building flanking a busy street and there were several tour buses parked adjacent to the room's windows. I opted to pay extra for 2 beds to get a room on an interior hallway away from the street noise and buses. After inspecting the room, I went back to the night window to register & pay. I asked if there was a room closer to the exit, the clerk said I could have the room nearest the exit available. I had not previewed the room I was given 2 doors down from the room I previewed. When I entered the room and shut the door, I could see light from the hallway through a 1/2 inch wide gap in the closed door. I had passed a room a few doors down with a group of people who were making enough noise to notice after midnight and from previous experience know any place air can get through, so can noise. i didn't like the lack of privacy either, so i called the front desk to get a different room. My request was courteously granted and I waited for the patient security guard to return with a different key. We returned to the first room I'd previewed and the door seemed fine so I accepted. The room was warm from being closed, so I went to open the window. There was a sliding horizontal window about 12 in high by 3 feet wide below a fixed window above. The sliding panel of the window was designed to only be opened half way, the opening was about 12 h x 9 wide, not going to cool off the room, but appreciated for a little security. I went to the thermostat to turn on the air conditioning. It was a very simple automatic digital thermostat with up and down arrows. I adjusted the temperature all the way down. The readout was 64, but the room was stifling. The thermostat would only go down to 66 and instead of the air conditioner coming on, the HEATER came on. I again called the front desk to ask if there were instructions to override the unwanted behavior. The clerk was a little less friendly this time and volunteered she didn't know how to operate the thermostat, but would send the security guard to help. He arrived quickly and did everything he could to help but it was no use that was how it was going to be. So I gave him the key and returned to the front desk to cancel my registration. The clerk didn't know how to void the transaction, but eventually figured out how to print a paper which clarified I didn't owe anything. I returned home and although I have not been charged for anything, the pending charge remains 12 days later. The whole ordeal took approximately an hour. Despite my difficulties I wouldn't discourage a visitor from staying here, it seemed to be near the top of what Fresno had to offer for pet friendly accommodations. I would not stay there again as I couldn't be comfortable,

    Bed was too firm, WiFi was too slow and clunky, breakfast was decent, room is smallish and heat/cooling wasn't able to set to just fan with outside air. There is a small fridge that froze my sandwich, but I was unable to get it to turn down. No microwave.

    « Best Western Village Inn - Fresno »

    Overall rating for the Best Western in Fresno is GOOD! My wife & I stayed two nights while doing business in the area. Since I was unfamiliar with Fresno, I spent a LOT of time sifting through reviews & prices. Conclusion? Fresno does not appear to offer the greatest amenities. Cockroaches rule! Fortunately, the Best Western I chose was a great place to stay. Let me count the ways: 1) No cockroaches; 2) Great complimentary breakfast; 3) Clean room (queen studio); 4) Shower & toilet work great. For me, a good complimentary breakfast is a bonus! Lots of bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, juices, fruit, bagels, and cereal available. One morning, the breakfast room was very crowded; I was impressed with staff keeping the breakfast foods well stocked.

    « Staff gave excellent road directions and condition »

    We were not familiar with the area and the staff pointed out places of interest and gave directions and road conditions. We were able to stop at a clothing store, gift shop, and buy gasoline at the most fair price in town thanks to the staff of B.W. We are most appreciative of the quality and variety of food provided for our breakfast. A great restaurant was recommended for our evening meal. The staff also suggested entertainment after dinner. The dinner was everything promised. The entertainment also was good, it featured local entertainers with whom my husband enjoyed music conversations, as he was a part-time musician.

    « Family Christmas get together »

    My husband and I booked this hotel thinking it was closer to our family. It really wasn't. However, the room was clean, comfortable, and pretty. There was problems, the water main broke, twice, and the heater/ air conditioner didn't work very well. But. the room was perfect, you didn't need the heater or air conditioner. There was even a freeze warning and the room stayed at a perfect temps. We really enjoyed every bit of our time with this hotel. The breakfast was very yummy and the employees are very sweet, helpful and just very nice to talk to. The main water break was really not anyone's fault. We always carry a cpac machine with extra water. We were not affected because we showered at night before and of course the water we always have. The price was really wonderful too. Thank you for making our stay very welcoming and enjoyable. We will be back.

    « Clean and easy location to find »

    As a pet-friendly hotel, I expected a lot worse, but the room was very clean and the location was easy to find. Of course, it's Fresno, so the location is what it is, but if you need to stay in the area it's more than serviceable and the buildings are secure. The staff was helpful and friendly too, and the rates were reasonable with a nominal pet fee of $20. The in-room heater was noisy, but it worked, and I've encountered too many noisy non-functioning heaters not to appreciate the distinction.

    « Good stop »

    A good place to make an overnight stop. Easy to get to. Clean and comfy room with open-able window. Fine breakfast. No lift to the upper floor rooms which was a bit of a surprise for a US hotel! Would happily stay there again on a late arrival, early departure trip.

    Our accommodations were comfortable, clean and quiet. Having been a holiday time, there were a lot of people coming and going. The staff kept up and made everyone, in our observation, feel welcome. This is a part of town where there are some street people. The staff was observant of this situation and made every effort to see that we felt safe.

    « 109 degrees Farenheit and the had a pool! »

    We flew into Fresno early September with 109 degrees F and had bad jet lag. Picked up our rental car totally zonked and just started driving out of the airport around and around. Stopped in at the local gas station wanting a not so expensive motel. All the ones at the airport looked expensive. Best Western up E.Blackstone was recommended. We finally found it on the map provided and collapsed into airconditioned heaven. Spent the next day in the pool. The stay included breakfast ranging from pancakes, toast, cereals to yoghurt and juice. Pinch a muffen for morning tea. Coffee maker in room can do hot water for tea. No toaster as they set off the smoke alarms. Bath/shower. Very neat and clean and quiet. Make sure you get out the back, upstairs if you dont have too much to carry. We managed with four packs, box of food and esky. All Best Westerns are so similiar that you know what you are getting. They give you a map of California with the motels starred on it. Very handy!

    « DONT STAY HERE!!!! »

    The area this hotel was in was BAD!!! I was afraid to go out after dark! The exterior door did not lock so anyone off the street could enter the building, I kept my room double locked when I was in it. My room key never worked and had to call the front desk several times to let me back in my room. Great place to stay if you are a escort or crack head. My second night a couple were arguing so loud they woke me up out of dead sleep at 3:30 AM!!!!

    This Best Western was closest to where I needed to be, and the price was about expected, though I preferred something the $59 range (plus tax). It was very clean, nice room, and service was great. Breakfast was plenty, but not always tasty. They had no microwave in the room to warm up muffins (I didm;t ask to use kitchen). The toilet ran, but they fixed it promptly. I didn't report that I almost couldn't turn on the water in the tub/shower; eventually managed, but a less strong, elderly person would not have managed. If you aren't getting up early, don't stay in Rm. 104 across from breakfast room. Noisy. I was satisfies with air-conditioning, though had to set it lower than 72 in order to have it be that; my other relatives had trouble with temperature in Rms. 122 and 124. Overall, a good place to stay.

    I was here on pleasure, in town for the Climb to Kaiser event. I was given a spacious room and needed a good night sleep as I needed to get up early Saturday morning. Bed, pillows, and all were great. Clean room with no complaints. No problems checking in or checking out. Friendly staff. 2nd night had an even better sleep than the first night, maybe it was because of the all the cycling that day. Either way it was a good night sleep. They have a pool in the middle of the complex a number of people were enjoying it. Breakfast was typical for Best Western, still good. I was on the first floor and no noise. Good price for a nights stay, I was there two nights. I would go back to this one again. Not too far from the mall and other shops in the area.
