    « Clean and Comfortable »

    I arrived late at night and was met by a cheerful staff member. This was a preview of my entire stay. My room was clean and well appointed. There were products for use. There were plenty of pillows. I appreciated the little fridge to keep my beverages cold. The included breakfast had eggs, all types of bread items, cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, waffles, and all the fixings. So much easier than having to time out eating at a café someplace before a meeting. Check out was easy and I received printed directions to my next destination. I will be using this as my regular stopping place when in the Fresno area.

    « Comfortable suite, clean, friendly staff, great value »

    Love the layout of this Best Western property in general, in particular the king-bed suite. Superior to the typical hotel/motel room. We needed only a one-night stay, but I can easily visualize being very comfortable for a longer term for business or leisure. The 2-room design with separate bedroom is practical and feels roomy. Would definitely recommend this property and will be back!

    « Lesure »

    I have stayed at this hotel many times and each time I stay I find it better. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, they know the area and will assist in whatever you need. Each time I travel to Fresno this is the only place that I stay (nine times so for). Close to shopping, restaurant's and transport

    « Highly Recommend »

    Trip to Fresno to attend 80th birthday dinner. Called to make reservations and spoke with Jocelyn. She was so patient and helpful answering my questions that I felt confident to recommend 3 other couples to stay here too. It was easy to check in and out. The king suite was clean. quite, roomy- 2 TVs, 1 in bedroom,1 in sitting area. Appreciate the bathroom is separated from the wash area. Bed was comfortable, wifi was good. Lobby had coffee/tea, lemon ice water and cookie. Although we did not have breakfast, it had a good variety to please adults and children. Great location, close by to mall. We felt safe and made our morning walk. The staff is accommodating and friendly. We were all happy.

    « One night stay »

    We slept there for one night. The room was nice. But the wi-fi was really bad. Some times there was no wifi at al. The pool was lovely and open to midnight but very cold. Our Norwegian Viking children did not care and swam anyway.

    « Disappointed »

    I stayed here for one night on business and since it was on Valentine's Day, I paid an extortionate rate of $243 for my very short stay. Disappointingly, I checked out the following morning feeling like I had just completely wasted every single penny of what I paid. I was assigned a room on the ground floor which was okay, to begin with. Unfortunately, at 6 AM, some of the staff who had just turned up for work decided to chitter chatter LOUDLY right outside my room without any regard for the guest(s) within earshot. So I guess it was a free wake-up call that I never asked for. The room itself was VERY dark and poorly lit. The layout was pretty unusual too. The room was enormous but there were lots of wasted space that served no purpose. The bathroom was the same way too. The distance between the shower and the sink was just unusually large: it just felt weird. What really annoyed me was the A/C unit that sounded like the now-defunct Concorde releasing a sonic boom every time I turned it on. And once it's turned on, the sound did NOT fade away at all. The A/C remained noisy and obstructive. I found it difficult to get my daily dose of forty winks. Breakfast was okay and only offered a limited amount of choices but at least there was a Starbucks next door.

    « Personal »

    I had a great experience room was clean upon arrival. Polite staff at front desk. My only complaint is that cleaning staff did not do a good job cleaning my room. Just came in an made the bed. Please do not let that discourage your decision. I will be coming back when I come visit my family. Also location is great right by mall and restaurants.

    « Nice people, poor service »

    I had a problem in my room: the bathroom was very dark, and the wand in the shower did not work. Reported to the front desk on my way out in the morning ... nothing. Did it again the next day ... nothing. On the 3rd day, as I was checking out, the clerk, same as on the 2nd day, apologized. She said she thought the manager would handle, but nothing had happened. I have no clue who was supposed to do what ... but 3 days, no follow up from anyone? No fix, no solution, nothing? Not good service.

    « Comfortable/clean stay. »

    Clean rooms. Very comfortable beds. Pretty good breakfast. Very friendly staff. Water pressure in the shower was terrible. Area just outside the hotel was a little sketchy. Homeless people living at the vacant bank next door and groups just hanging out on sidewalks after dark.

    « Perfect location for my visit »

    Receptionist were friendly, helpful ,joking and laughing with us during checkin , also a plus upgraded us to suite bc were Gold members stayed in 310 everything worked as it should had no issues with the WiFi. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Plenty of places to eat up and down Shaw. We been staying at this location for some years when visiting Fresno always happy with my stay.

    « First Time in Fresno »

    Bed was comfortable, but the Pillows were small. The faucet in the sink would not get any cold water. No matter where you turned the handle, all you got was hot water. There were two lights in the shower room. Both white. One was supposed to be a heat lamp. The heater/AC unit would not stop blowing al night. The hotel was not expensive though.

    « Great Service! »

    I needed an extra day and the hotel was full. The manager rearranged rooms so I could keep my room and accommodate all guests! She is the best!! The rooms are clean. Plenty of electrical outlets! Very well lit,

    « Nice hotel with simple and modern designs. »

    I arrived around 2:00pm, and there was no-one at the desk for 10 minutes. After a while a young lady who was General Manager came and checked me in. She was great explaining about the local activities in the area. I got a nice room on 3rd floor 319. The only drawside was a squeak at the door which I reported at check out. One of the business Center Chairs will need to be changed as it has a tear and does not match with the other. Aside from that it is a great hotel located near the Mall and feels safe.

    « Would stay again! »

    « Stay at the best western in fresno ca »

    This was a very good motel and i will stay there again. The motel is very clean and the staff is very helpful.The only bad thing is the homeless that are on the next block so it is not safe to walk after dark.

    « Great night's sleep »

    In town for one night to see a concert. Clean, comfortable room. Staff was great. Breakfast was hot and tons of options, not a typical "continental" breakfast. Definitely would stay here again. Very comfy!

    « Good choice for Fresno »

    We had a large room with good lighting, except that one lamp was broken. Beds and furniture were comfortable. There was a mini-fridge with freezer, a small microwave and good air conditioning. There was also an odd odor that I couldn't identify. The night was very quiet. We used the small but adequate gym. Breakfast was decent, including processed scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and toppings.

    « Fresno Inn - Clean & Hospital »

    The staff is truly willing to serve and meet your every need. The rooms were probably the cleanest I've stayed in, in any hotel. Conveniently located near the mall, other shopping & eateries, freeways and Fresno City College.

    « Very nice »

    Stayed at this hotel for a concert at the Save Mart Center. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. Bed was comfortable and I really liked their soap (some hotels have terrible soap). I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again for future concerts!

    « Very Nice Room »

    The motel was very nice and upscale.It was near my destination.The room was excellent and bigger than expected.The staff was very professional and seemed as if we had known them.The best part I was able to receive two nights FREE with my points.

    « It Worked »

    This place worked OK but it's nothing special. My major complaint was my window wouldn't open at all. It sure would have been nice to get some fresh air in room #309. The house keeping was good, breakfast was OK.

    4
    « Good but beginning to decline »

    Compared to just a few years ago, things at BW Fresno Inn are starting to slip. Breakfast is passable -- often same eggs & bacon two days in a row, or biscuits & gravy with no other hot item because they have only one hot plate (hint: leave the biscuits in the bread box and put egss in their place). Carpets need cleaning. Rooms no longer smell "fresh" upon check in.

    5
    « Nice hotel »

    The location of the hotel was in close proximity to the Bulldog stadium where our tournament was held. There are many restaurants to choose from. Shaw street is a bit noisy. Overall, it was a good stay for the reasonable price.

    « A Good Nights Stay »

    We do not travel to Fresno very often and this was a very nice place to stay. The breakfast had a great variety and was extremely good. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and courteous. I would recommend this location for a goods nights stay.

    5
    « Convenient Location »

    We used this hotel for a base location. We visited Yosemite NP and Sequoia-Kings Canyon. We were able to have a decent breakfast before starting the day. The breakfast was good for a hotel and the menu varied the 4 days we were there. We were able to get fresh fruit and bottled water to take with us. The room was nice because we had a couch and a chair to relax after the long day of hiking in the parks. It was a clean hotel and the staff were very friendly and always willing to help in any way.

    « A pleasant facility in close proximity to several things. »

    Very clean rooms, good daily room cleaning, towels, and very cordial staff, and excellent breakfast in this price point hotel. There was nice variety in the breakfast options, very friendly kitchen attendant. Breakfast area too compact, but excellent otherwise.

    « Best Western Plus Fresno Inn »

    We had such a nice time in Fresno, there's plenty to do and many places to eat as the hotel is directly opposite a large mall and a Cheesecake Factory which was great! The room was very clean with a wet room inc rain shower which was very nice when it worked, air con not to noisy and worked well. Didn't use the pool but the gym has more than enough equipment and inc. with room. Free breakfast was the best we've had with lots of options inc. a hot one which was different daily. We travelled to the Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs from here and the journey was bearable for a day trip. Would highly recommend

    « Good hotel »

    Most comfortable bed in California! The bed was King size. Very clean room. Breakfast next morning was excellent. Great service for tired travellers on a budget. Welcoming staff at the desk who were very happy to share information all about California which helped considerably. I'd stay here again.

    « Does the job »

    The hotel and room were clean, staff were friendly, and breakfast OK for hotel of this level. The lighting in the bathroom was a little dim. Also, I was surprised it didn't have ABC, NBC, or CBS channels on the cable TV. I wasn't too impressed with the pillows, but the bed was OK.

    « Good Solid Accomodation »

    Room was very satisfactory. Only reason for not giving five stars is I thought the breakfast could have been a little better. Close to a few choices for meals and close to major freeway. We would definitely return.

    « Excellent Staff! »

    Exceptional staff at this location in Fresno. Everyone from the front desk, breakfast staff, housekeeping and Manager went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Very good location to shop across from the mall and a pharmacy also. Felt safe walking to everything.

    « Good but not great »

    The location is excellent for highway convenience but lousy for ambiance. The staff can't be faulted, they are friendly and accommodating. My room was nicer than I might have expected given the hotel's exterior, and quiet, considering the very busy road outside. Still there are issues: the bathrooms are almost unbelievably dark for a "newly remodeled" claim, as if it hasn't occurred to anyone that a woman might want to use that room to apply makeup. The rooms are oddly lit as well, with very bright entries but dim and badly placed lights in the room itself. Don't plan on reading.

    « Fantastic location »

    Location and staff were GREAT. Even got a quieter room than expected. Usually do not sleep well first night...Slept wonderfully. Location was excellent for a variety of restaurants and the Savemart Center. Felt like it was in a safe location as well.

    I enjoyed my stay here, but the layout of the room I stayed in was very odd. The bathroom was very small and the sink and mirror was outside the restroom. It was fine, just odd to me. Also staff was very professional and the room was very clean. Internet works great as well!

    Great beds, great breakfast, easy to get to off the freeway and very close to the malls and shopping centers in Fresno. I love staying here because it is not a huge hotel, easy to get checked in and out so you can go about your business. The rooms are comfortable and large and I love it.

    « Pleasant experience! Would stay again. »

    Quiet location, but convenient to many areas of Fresno. It's not a fancy place, but our room was clean and large, beds comfortable with a choice of pillows. The staff was efficient and friendly, with Susan at the front desk. We didn't use the pool; but the pool and pool area looked clean. The pool is kind of small. Breakfast included scrambled eggs and a breakfast meat. Make-your-own waffles were also available (you can add strawberries and whipped cream), along with cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, breads, fresh fruit. Marti kept the breakfast room clean and well-stocked. My sister said the coffee was excellent. We come to Fresno several times a year to visit family and we would definitely stay here again.

    « A Plus to Our Trip »

    Arrived early afternoon and was accommodated with an upgrade on request. The room was roomy and clean with a separate sitting room and couch. The bathroom was simple with the sink outside the door. Bed was comfortable and enjoyable. The breakfast seemed standard for this chain with the basics. Location was great near a mall with many restaurants. The pool was outside but could not try due to a rain storm. A pleasant stay.

    « perfect EXCEPT »

    this is a very good Best Western Plus hotel and a very nice place to stay, clean, safe, well-run, nice rooms, well-furnished. BUT never ever accept room 102, it is a nightmare. directly thru the wall from the headboard of the nice comfy bed is a fire door at the bottom of the stairs coming down from the 2nd floor into the lobby. the fire door must always be closed. and it is closed by a VERY strong auto-closer which SLAMS the door closed behind guests going up or down the stairs, and it SLAMS every few minutes until 12 midnight or later, and then starts slamming again at 06:00 AM in the morning. good luck trying to sleep!!!!!!

    « Older Inn but OK »

    When we arrived, staff was very helpful. After we settled in, we tried to call for food from recommended restaurant, but got no dial tone. when I went to front desk to report, they asked if I was in room ?? When I said yes they said phone on front desk kept ringing from our room, but we kept hanging up. When they came to our room to check phone, they found that it worked if we pressed speaker, but not otherwise. Breakfast was not very good. They had eggs and some kind of mush, cereal and coffee.

    It is a nice clean hotel and reasonably priced. The room was a decent size and the bed comfortable. The staff were friendly too. It was perfect for my husband and I because what we wanted after a long trip was a quiet room with a great bed in which to sleep. Thankfully, that is exactly what we got! We will stay there if we go to Fresno again.

    « Best place in the area. »

    We were on a road trip down the 99 heading to southern CA and planned to stop in the area for the night. Due to the fires, many of the motels were reserved for firefighters, so we had to keep going until we found one. Our GPS told us there was a Comfort Inn right off the fwy in Fresno, so we were going to try there - and then did not like the look of the area so we looked up any Best Westerns nearby. There was one, 6 miles down that same road, so what the heck, we gave it a shot. Thank goodness we did! So much nicer area, and very upscale looking hotel - for a very reasonable price! And they had vacancies! Whew. Beautiful furnishings, comfy beds, clean and modern bathroom. Never tried the pool, but I got a pic of it. It was cute but super small, and a tiny hot tub nearby. Tasty full breakfast offerings, I loved the scrambled eggs and my husband, very picky about his coffee, said it was the best hotel coffee he's ever had. Would love to stay there again.

    « Modern Comfortable Room »

    We stayed here as part of our road trip round California and chose Fresno as it is sort of between Yosemite and Sequoia Park. We really liked this hotel, the room was clean and modern, not the usual beige and dark green decor found in a number of USA hotel chains. The bed was very comfortable and there was a big television plus a microwave in the room. Check-in was a bit slow as myself and a couple of other guests had to hang around for a few minutes as there was no sign of anyone at reception and when the receptionist arrived she wasn't particularly friendly and did her job without conversing or smiling. Breakfast was pretty average, the usual stuff out of packets and not very tasty bread. However there was lots of hot drinks and fresh juice and it filled a gap. The hotel is in a very good location opposite a shopping mall with a comic book/game store, Forever 21 and J C Penney. There's a CVS and a Cheesecake Factory nearby as well. After we checked out, we drove straight along the road to West Shaw Avenue and the Forestiere underground gardens, which are well worth a visit. Would recommend this hotel as the room was so clean. modern and comfortable.

    Front desk staff at check-in very friendly. At checkout average. Hotel is up to date and offers nice modern rooms. Exterior Grounds were kept up fine. Breakfast was free and offered hot items as well as the make your own waffles. Very pleased with the breakfast and items offered and they were hot and fresh. Rooms were clean just noticed the arms of the couch were dirty and needed to be cleaned. Also hallway carpets were very dirty and needed to be cleaned. Room carpets were clean. Notified front desk agent at checkout. She did not really have an answer for me and did not apologize. I hope the hotels takes care of this issue. This is why I mentioned average as the staff agent at checkout. The area is near the Fashion Fair Mall and several eateries basically across the street walking distance. The area is fine on the side of the freeway the hotel is located. A female should not walk alone in this area even across to the mall and eateries after dark.

    This hotel is great. Everything was great except a light noise that came probably from the in-room refrigerator. For most people, this wouldn't pose a problem, but I'm a sensitive insomniac. It's located on Shaw Ave. within easy reach of services (restaurants, banks, malls and freeways)

    « Another great Best Western »

    I have to say, this is what Best Western Inns are all about. I stayed there this past Saturday May 20, 2017. I was greeted by April who is a doll and was told I was too early to check in. No problem, while I was at the counter Chris, asked which room I was waiting for, April answered and the Chris went above and beyond to inspect the room and make sure all was well. I did a couple of errands and returned to the hotel where I met Susan. Another doll. I have to say my experience with this hotel was wonderful, I really wish there were other words in the English language to say just how wonderful these 3 individuals made my stay. I loved the room, the hot tub was awesome and for a Saturday night the hotel was quiet. I just loved my stay. I have a theory, if I stay in enough of Best Western hotels it will help me forget the awful stay I experienced in New Mexico when I stayed at the Best Western Rio Grande. This Best Western was so much better than that one. From the staff to the rooms to the breakfast buffet. So So much better. I think the staff from New Mexico could take lessons on how to run a hotel and deal with the guests from the 3 wonderful people I encountered in Fresno. Keep up the great work Chris, April and Susan, you made this Veteran very very happy. I can not say thank you enuogh.

    « Our Stay at Best Western Plus Fresno »

    My husband and I were greeted at the reception desk by Nicole who is warm and friendly. She is a real gem!! Our room which was a good size had a queen bed and a large sofa. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were too large for me and I ended up not using one at all. My husband had no problem with the pillows. We really liked the fact that the sink area with a large counter on which to spread our toiletries was separate from the toilet and shower/bathtub. There were many choices at the breakfast buffet and the person serving made sure it was adequately supplied throughout breakfast. Susan who checked us out was also friendly and hardworking. We definitely would stay at this Best Western if we ever find ourselves traveling to Fresno.

    « Clean, nice rooms but some airport noise »

    Property is fairly new, very clean and well-maintained with helpful staff; the breakfast was better than expected! The location is convenient, if a bit too close to highway 41 noise... however what I hadn't realized is it's in the flight path of the Fresno airport, which isn't super-busy but still has flights in & out late at night and early in the morning, so we didn't sleep all that well. The A/C unit is strong and quiet, however it lets outside noise in and was right beside the bed in our room. If you can sleep with earplugs you'll do fine.

    « Go elsewhere »

    There was loud parting in the pool with music and alcohol past 10 pm. The hallway smelled like pot and the room was musty. I was checked into an occupied room which was very awkward and uncomfortable and had to wait 25 minutes while she tried to find me a room that wasn't occupied and she didn't seem confident this kept my child up way past her bedtime. Really awkward stay. Never again.

    « Just Awesome! »

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 12 nights and the stay at the hotel was just fabulous. The room was large well equipped and fitted with all amenities. The bathroom was spacious, clean and had lots of towels. There was a microwave, refrigerator, adeuate hangers for clothes in the cupboard, free and excellent wifi with high speeds, a large desk for study, pleanty of lights, air conditioning, tea/coffee maker in room, and so much more. The delights of a 5-star hotel at an affordable price. The highlight was the free breakfast which had eggs, bacon, sausages, yoghurt, waffles, breads/muffins, various juices, fresh fruits, etc. The lady in charge of breakfast was very helpful, spreading joy and laughter and going out of her way to make the day a happy one. The reception was also very helpful. They supported us when we expected a parcel by post, helped get hot water for tea in the lobby, and made us feel at home. There is very little that went wrong over such a long stay and will definitely stay here if we visit Fresno again.

    « Meeeh »

    The CHECKIN was mediocre at best, no acknowledgement of being a diamond member, had to inquire about my free upgrade; April didn't have a clue about it. The hotel rooms are nice, smaller them most BW's. It's across from the mall so location is strategic. Just off the 42 so location is key. The elder lady that took care of the breakfast was to busy talking to coworkers and guests to stock the bacon, eggs and sausage. When she did restock the bacon; it was burnt to a crisp. At least I had cold eggs to eat (me rolling my eyes)! The manager was walking around chatting with the breakfast lady; here's a thought, stop by your paying customers table and ask how their stay is. I woulda told you first hand about it. Will I be back; I doubt it.

    I love this hotel. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Great location across the mall. Everything in the room is spotless, even the remote control. There's a sitting area to read a book or kick back and watch TV. A desk to get some work done. The usual microwave, refrigerator, iron/ironing board, hair dryer. I pack light so I usually use the washer and dryer on the premises ($1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry). I love the bed with all the pillows and comfy bedcovers. The whole room is warm, inviting and relaxing, and quiet when I want to sleep. I always stay here when I'm in Fresno. Parking is free. I just love this hotel.

    I have stayed at this hotel a few times before & been quiet happy , but I think last night may be my last stay here . The receptionist while she did her job , had as much charm as a robot , not a good first impression . When we went to our room we found it had a connecting door to next guest room . Usually I ask on booking not to be given such a room. I phoned down & requested a different room , but was told this was not at all possible as hotel was fully booked . When I explained that due to medical condition my husband was prone to noisy nightmares & I was concerned for other guests hearing this , she suddenly had a room available !! I,m not sure how good housekeeping was in second room , as on the floor was a metal dry cleaners type clothes hanger ! So obviously not vacuumed ! When I went down later & commented that the room can not have been vacuumed due to this hanger on the floor , which I gave to her , she replied " Oh thank you " Was she even listening to what I said ? The fan in the bathroom was unusable as it made so much noise -- I,m not sure it was even working . We did forget to tell them this on leaving. Breakfast room was so full many people could not find seats , we in fact sat in reception area with our coffee & cereals . Which also brings me to the question , if non - dairy milk is available , why is it not put out with the dairy milk ? Many people would assume it is not available or do not like to ask . So sorry , its been a good friendship till now , but I will be moving on

    « Quieter than first impression »

    We stayed one night at Best Western Plus Fresno Inn, on our trip to see the bald eagles at Millerton Lake. East Shaw Avenue is a major street, close to Cal State Fresno, and when we got there, we worried that traffic noise would bother us. But it did not. The hotel is set back from the street, and all rooms are interior access. Our room was perfectly adequate and clean, and our bed was comfortable. The woman at the front desk was friendly and helped us by answering some questions with good advice. The included breakfast was good, with hot eggs, bacon and sausage. The woman who maintained the breakfast cooked waffles, and offered them around in a friendly manner. There were also the usual cold items, such as yogurt and cereal. The breakfast was better than average.

    « Quiet, friendly, and clean with small issues »

    This was our first time staying here. Pros: The room was very quiet, even though the property is in close proximity to a lot of traffic; the refrigerator and AC fan (w/out heat or AC running) were extraordinarily quiet--the best we've ever had at any property with window units; the breakfast food was not over-salted, was well-stocked, and very fresh; all staff were very attentive, helpful, and friendly and, in particular, the woman responsible for the breakfast buffet was awesome. Cons: there was no coffee carafe for the in-room coffee maker (note: we did not bother to tell management, since our stay was short); bathtub was worn; small housekeeping issues (bath fan and lampshades dusty; furniture had not been moved to vacuum, so remnant of crackers on floor next to bed); doors in room were VERY squeaky (again, we did not tell management and forgot to mention it at checkout). Overall, the experience was excellent and we plan to stay there, again. The pros absolutely outweighed the very small housekeeping oversights.

    We're here for Thanksgiving to visit Family and we always look for BW-Plus. This place did not disappoint. Everything about it was perfect. The only (barely) concern was maybe it's time for new mattresses, but it could have been much worse. Staff was excellent, location was premium, and everything else, we loved. I really, REALLY, appreciate the hot breakfast and good coffee. This is a deal-breaker for me and it did not disappoint. Even the Hot-Tub was HOT! I thank the staff for making the stay enjoyable, and will definitely be back

    Overall, a very smart choice if you need accommodations in Fresno near the university and to numerous restaurants and shopping.

    This was our first visit to Fresno and to this hotel. It is located right in the middle of malls and shopping. At first we thought this would be a problem, pleasantly surprised that it was very convenient and did not have problems with noise etc. Very nice hotel, efficient staff, very pleased with the room, exceptional breakfast for a quick meal. The hotel was very clean, staff were always available and either cleaning, tending to visitor needs, manager onsite was exceptional. They had decorated for Halloween and worked hard to keep everything clean and pleasant. Definitely would stay at this hotel again if passing through the area.

    When you stay at a Best Western, you know that you are going to get a clean, comfortable room with a framily staff. They are not luxury hotels but serve my needs when I need a hotel for business or short stays. The BW Plus Fresno Inn was close to where my business meeting was, close to the freeway, close to restaurants and I received a quiet, clean, comfortable spacious room with breakfast. It was perfect for my needs. It had a couch and work table and the limite buffet breakfast was very good.

    « Excellent Facilities & Excellent Value »

    What a pleasant surprise. On this three week road trip we have only stayed in few hotels that deserve 5 stars and this is one. This location has very well furnished rooms with upscale everything. This place has plaques on the wall that indicate they have been on the top of their game for several years and I believe it. This is also the least expensive hotel we have stayed in on our west coast trip making this the best value by far.

    « Comfortable stay »

    Our room was spacious and comfortable. The beds could have been a better quality but overall the room was quite nice for the price. There were 4 pillows for each bed. The room was clean and had nice amenities. Breakfast was quite good with a large variety of options from cold cereals and breads to hot items including eggs, bacon and sausage. You could also make waffles with all sorts of tasty toppings. You definitely get a good value for your money.

    « Fine Place for a night's stay »

    Best Western Plus in Fresno was a perfectly nice place to stay. The room was large. Plenty of pillows on the bed, although they were lumpy. I liked the arrangement of the big vanity and sink outside a separate shower and toilet. The receptionist was not particularly friendly, and failed to mention that there was a complimentary breakfast in the morning which we had forgotten about. It was quite good, with eggs, bacon, bread of various sorts, waffles, etc. We asked about whether there were movies on TV, and she didn't know. There weren't, at least we weren't able to find them. It was close to the good restaurant we had chosen, the Lime Lite, which was nice!

    « Good place for a quick stop »

    Nice rooms for a quick stay, a bit noisy so don't expect to have best night of sleep but good for price/quality. The swimming pool was also a nice resting spot. One strong comment: DO NOT ASK RECEPTIONIST FOR ADVICE ON TOURS!! I asked how long it was to Yosemite and Sequoia and almost lost my trips because of the horrible information I was given

    « Quick trip. TESLA CHARGING AVAILABLE! »

    Wish we had more time to actually enjoy this property. We were in Fresno on the weekend for the Garth Brooks concert. The check-in was efficient, the room clean and very well-appointed (including a small fridge), AND...AND the property has a Tesla HPWC with 80 am charging right near the front door. YEA! Rather than wait in the heat and sun at the Fresno Tesla Supercharger location, my car was simply FULLY CHARGED and ready to make the return drive to Sacramento while we slept. I did sample quickly the breakfast room, and the coffee was good, the OJ was actually quite good, and my half-waffle a wonderful starter for the morning. Would return for sure.

    I love to stay here when I am in town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, lots of room and plug recepticals for charging all of your phones and computers, very comfortable bed, good lighting and clean. I usually get a quiet room since I usually have work to do when I am done with my appointments but on this trip on my last night, it was different. After midnight, a white extended cab truck with a black star on the hood pulled up on the back side of the hotel with the windows down and music turned up really loud. Three very drunk men were in the truck and they were talking louder than the music. They got out and were talking loudly and staggering around, leaning on other cars. I called the desk to let them know. I was told the men had just checked in (as smashed as they were, I am surprised they were given a room) and that security would be notified. I didn't see security come and as time passed one of the men staggered to the wall and proceeded to urinate. I called down again and was told the night desk clerk had not had time to call security but would. I still didn't see security. The men were staggering all over the back parking lot talking. A car pulled in and parked but nobody got out. Finally the men walked off and the person, a woman, finally got out of the car and came into the back door. First time this place didn't seem safe. I will stay here again but I was disappointed hat security didn't deal with this issue quickly.

    « Could have been better »

    We came on a Tuesday and stayed until Friday morning - 3 nights. When we got there the elevator was broken and we had to carry all of our heavy suitcases up the stairs. When we left on Friday the elevator was still out of service and they told us it was being fixed on Monday. I don't know how long it was out before we came but it was broken for at least 6 days. For a hotel with 3 floors this is unacceptable to make 2/3 of your guests carry luggage up the stairs We had some cases of drinks in the car that we would have brought inside so they would not get really hot (it was 106 degrees). Since we didn't want to carry them up the stairs we left them in the car and had to drink them hot. Also, the room smelled like smoke and still smelled that way for all 3 nights we were there. We propped the door open when we left at the end of our stay to hopefully air it out a bit for the next guest. I think it was room 216 in case anyone is wondering. One of the days that we were there the swimming pool was out of service as well. We chose this hotel based on the great reviews it had on tripadvisor but it wasn't what we expected. On the plus side, other than the smoke smell, the room and bathroom were clean and the parking lot was good. The AC was good which was important in the Fresno summers

    « Nice hotel »

    This is the last night of our 11 day vacation to California. We spent every single day on the run going to Kings Canyon, Sequoia, Yosemite and the coast all the way from Monterey to Moro Bay. It was nice to come home each night to a nice clean room and a comfy made bed, especially after miles of hiking in the 80 to nearly 100 degree temperatures. The noise was low, the area well lit, very close to Highway 41, and just a short drive from the airport. The staff were very friendly, and on one occasion we got to breakfast a little late and the nice lady in charge of breakfast offered to cook something for us anyways! There is even a business center where we were able to check in online and print our boarding passes for tomorrow morning. There is only one reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5 and that is bathtub safety. The floors of the bathtub were very slippery in our room. My wife and I nearly fell a few times. This is something I definitely think needs to be fixed! Other than that, great hotel!

    As Hotels go in Fresno, this was a decent stay. As anyone with knowledge of the area knows, there are no luxury places to stay in Fresno, but the Best Western was clean, comfortable, and the room actually quite spacious for the suite. The staff was friendly and accommodating. 3 stars is the maximum I can give to a hotel with no luxury amenities like room service, or top-tier restaurant, additionally, the pool is no frills. However, again, this is one of our better stays in Fresno, as we come here frequently to visit my Son, and we've had some horrible stays at other Hotels.

    « Breakfast here has become a disappointment »

    Claiming that all BWs are required to serve the same breakfast items, the quality of breakfast has gone way downhill here. A year ago, the hot breakfast was different daily, included items such as biscuits and gravy, hash, potatoes, non-frozen scrambled eggs, sausage links and patties, bacon, oatmeal, and a variety of fresh fruit. Now, just the same three "hot" items every day, seven days a week: frozen "scrambled" eggs that come out like looking like cottage cheese or worse (and were served cold at 6:30am one day this past week), the same undercooked, barely warm sausage patties every day, precooked bacon that is either heated to cinders or underheated and greasy. I suppose I could have a waffle some days, but the batter isn't even good any more. Normally, I go to breakfast first thing at 6:30am. One day this stay, I went at 8am. No eggs, no bacon, two sausages, a few slices of bread, no bagels, a few english muffins, and no attendant. Went back at 8:30am, and nothing had changed. So breakfast was a couple of cold sausages on stale bread and a couple of cups of OJ -- no milk for dry cereal available. They don't even put out any bananas any more. I don't know if there really is a chain-wide mandate to serve the same food every day, but if that's true, they might as well just drop breakfast altogether and lower the room rate $10, and I'll drive to Denny's or somewhere for a real breakfast. Personally, I think the management at this location is cutting corners. There has been a complete turnover of FOH staff, and that says a lot. Very sad to see these changes for the worse take place. My company books 30+ rooms here for one-two days three times a year, and I stay here 3-4 nights one week per month plus an occasional additional day or two per month.

    « Excellent front staff, clean comfortable room »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western in Fresno on Shaw Ave in June 2016. I would rate my overall stay experience as an 8 out of 10 (10 being the best). The staff at the front desk where extremely friendly. We actually reserved a double occupancy room and got a room with a standard size bed (hence, one of the reason I only rate it an 8). It was addressed and we left satisfied. Our bed was small bed, but comfortable enough for one night. If we stayed more than one, I might have requested another room the 2nd night. My husband is a big guy, but for me, it was just fine. The room was not overly fancy, but clean and had simple modern décor. The pillows were above average. The room temperature was good. The breakfast bar was above average as far as a continental breakfast goes. They had sausage and eggs (not always a given for a continental breakfast), waffles, bagels, apples, bananas, cold cereal, and the usual. The employee working at the breakfast bar was very friendly (happy with life kind of guy :) The breakfast bar was very clean too. Unfortunately, we did not get an opportunity to get in the pool or hot tub, but it looked clean and well maintained The price was competitive ($99 night). The part of town the hotels was placed seemed safe. My husband and I would stay here again if we were able to book at room with a larger bed.

    « No Cable Service. »

    The Cable was out and we were told that "Supposedly" someone was working on it but they didn't know if or when it would be fixed. I asked to speak to the Manager and was told that the Manager wouldn't be in until Monday. ( After we would be gone...)

    « Great location in Fresno »

    This place is in a great location just off the main street but very close to major shopping centres and the freeways that cut through Fresno going both north and southbound as well as to the east and west. The place itself is nice with good front desk service and plenty of parking. The room is quite large although it was a bit strange having the vanity area in the hallway by the room door with the shower and toilet in a room opposite. A couple other small queries - there is only one washing machine so we had to go to a laundromat as it was already in use and we had a lot of washing to do that day. The pool is also located in a strange position right by the front entrance doors to the hotel. It felt a bit strange having to walk through the main foyer outside and also it wasn't very private. A side door entry would be better and some screening or fencing could make it a more pleasant experience. Finally the breakfast room each day didn't have butter for the toast, the first time I've ever seen that in a hotel. Overall though a nice stay.

    « Exceptional Staff Ensured Quiet Room for Extended Stay »

    Exceptionally capable and friendly staff ensured a quiet room with an outstanding bed for an extended stay. Outlets built into bed frame nice plus for phone charging and computer use. Everything very clean. Couple of problems for those using this for work. Internet connection intermittent; kept having to reconnect. Lighting was not at its best for productive business trip; lots lamps, but none with 3-way bulbs or higher wattage made it difficult to work. BIggest problem was the carb-heavy breakfast. "Eggs" are some kind of "egg product" and sometimes weren't even hot. Lots of greasy sausage and bacon-type product. American bread, pasty bagels, and too-sweet muffins. Had yoghurt, juices, apples, and oranges, but other fruits (like blackberries) available to the early eaters were not replenished. Noting this for those who count on the breakfast to offset some of the expense of the motel. OK location behind stores fronting major street in Fresno, but those traveling alone early might want to get there for most secure parking spot.

    « Good first night of my Vacation »

    The Best Western Fresno Inn was in a very good location for my needs. Close to the 41 Hwy, near shopping and not far from Blackstone for dining. The room was well appointed and had extra pillows and blankets (which were not needed). Breakfast was a nice touch. The pool and spa area was very small and did not leave much room for doing laps in the pool. The spa was comfortable for up to 4 people.

    « Hidden away and quiet »

    This place is hidden away and very quiet, but close to everything. My only complaint is that the ice machine is on the second floor and the vending machine on the second floor would not take paper money and I had to go to the third floor. We had a room on the first floor. The rooms are nice and clean.

    Everything was excellent the only down side was this was CSU FRESNO graduation, the hotel was booked but the poor lady in the breakfast room had no help!! We went down stair and everything was empty, no breakfast left this was approximately 8:15 am and the lady was running her tail off trying to get caught up and people were very rude to her:(:( Maybe next time you have a large event in the area with a hotel sell out you could schedule one extra person to help in the breakfast room.

    « Clean rooms - friendly staff »

    I chose this hotel because of the high ratings here on Trip Advisor - as well as the fact that the hotel offers a hot breakfast. I was not disappointed. Check-in when we arrived was smooth. The rooms are clean and a great value. The bathroom was a bit small - but the sink area is outside the room with the shower/toilet, so that was helpful. WiFi is strong throughout the hotel. The breakfast - and woman who replenishes the breakfast items and maintains the breakfast area is very friendly and dedicated to her work. She really brightens the start of the day. The scrambled eggs and breakfast sausage patties are very good. When booking your reservation, you'll get a discount if you are a AAA member.

    Called front desk (SUSAN) to reserve two rooms. Susan did two separate reservations each with it's own reservation #. On day checked in only one room showed in system- said they couldn't find 2nd conf. # & no other room available because hotel "overbooked" because of a concert in the area.

    « Best Western PLUS should be rated PREMIER »

    Completely remodeled a few years ago, the hotel is probably the best in Fresno, CA. It is not too large so sometimes difficult to get in. Offers excellent internet and breakfast, both included in price. Security cameras monitor inside and parking areas. Lobby is very large; offers business center. All rooms are inside along lighted hallways. Nice staff. Rooms are set up as suites with work areas, refrigerator, ironing boards, hair dryer, and great lighting. New lights have 110v outlets so there are ample outlets, including on wall, available for charging electronic devices.

    « Pretty Suite Deal »

    I have enjoyed staying here before and was surprised to find there is a new Manager. Lonnie was on the phone with a customer when I came in to see if I could check in early. As soon as she was able to finish up with the other customer, she set me up right away. I usually get a regular room but decided to treat myself to a suite since the rate was so reasonable. When you walk into the lobby everything is right. It is stylish and comfortable. My suite was very comfortable. The living area had a couch, chair, end table and coffee table a desk with a work chair, microwave, small flat screen TV and fridge. There was a set of French doors to the bedroom and inside was a bed, chair, dresser, two end tables and a larger flat screen TV. The vanity with one sink and a lot of counter space is right inside the door. The room was very clean and very comfortable. There is a lot of choices of meals close by as well as a mall for shopping. I look forward to staying here again.

    « For the price, a reasonable place »

    We were working an all-day meeting at the neighboring Ramada, and since we do not like Ramadas for sleeping rooms, we stayed here. Our room was spacious and the king bed fairly comfortable. The window looked into a "channel" between two wings of the hotel, so it was dark even with bright daylight outside. Lighting in the bath was fairly dim--likely designed by a guy who doesn't consider what it's like to put on makeup in dim light. Breakfast was the usual: powdered eggs, [greasy] bacon, a selection of Kellogg cereals, some fruit. Service, though, was great. Very friendly staff.

    We have been on a multi stop vacation through the US. We decided on this hotel after visiting Yosemite and before the long drive to Vegas. The hotel is really easy to find right off the freeway. The hotel has a good sized car park, check in was quick, reception explained they had all night security checking the cars so we were reassured from the off. The room is a good size, it was clean, modern and air conditioned. We took dinner that evening almost opposite the hotel at the Cheesecake Factory, there are other choices as well, then walked back to the hotel. In the morning they have a free hot breakfast which is self service, perfectly adequate for us. Overall we thought the hotel was exceptional value for money for the standard you get. We have no complaints at all

    « Great value for an overnight stay. »

    This Best Western Plus, was a true "Plus" - from check-in to check-out. The King bed was very comfortable, the room and bathroom/shower were very clean, and the room temperature was easily adjustable, The lobby was uncluttered, the check-in Clerk was efficient and friendly. Just an FYI: I was in Fresno to attend a concert at the SaveMart Center on the Fresno State campus, and it was very easy to get to (via Uber for $6.37), but arranging a ride back was more difficult - there is no "entry" once the concert is over, and the traffic congestion made a meeting point more complicated. However, once in the car, the ride back to the Hotel was short, though a little more expensive. The breakfast provided many choices: a variety of breakfast cereals, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, sausage gravy, white and wheat bread, English muffins, bagels, and batter for waffles, plus all the usual condiments and juices, as well as coffee and tea (bags). The Hostess was very attentive and kept items replenished. A plus: the toaster actually toasted the muffin rather than merely warming it. A minus: the fresh fruit stand had two very tired looking apples, and nothing else.

    « Steady Dependable Place »

    We had stayed at the BW Fresno Inn before, a few years back. Based on that stay, we decided to try it this past week as we were traveling to Fresno. We were again, not disappointed. check in was easy, we were upgraded to a larger, king suite which gives you a separate sitting area which is always nice. The room was very clean and in good shape. The pool area, while small, is kept up well. They could offer larger towels though. The breakfast was well stocked. Also, the hotel is close to Fresno State and also across the street from a shopping mall with some very good restaurants, so the location is ideal. This Best Western doesn't have a lot of "bells and whistles", but it is solid and dependable and will be our hotel of choice whenever we go to Fresno.

    Stayed a night on our way to Vancouver from Palm Springs , excellent stopover . Loni was a pleasure to deal with at check in . Great location , opposite Fashion Mall & restaurants , particularly recommend Cheesecake Factory . Good freeway access.Nice touch having coffee, cookies, & iced water available all the time . Complimentary breakfast was ok , but would suggest that they consider offering non dairy milk also , as many have dairy allergies -- almond milk or soya would be appropriate . The ceiling in bathroom could do with having the water stain seen to !

The hotel offered shuttle service free to take us to a restaurant, although theres a sub sandwich shop and a pizza place next door. They also picked me up from turning in my rental car, then back out to the airport the next day. Being so close to the airport was an advantage, but I worried if it would be quiet enough. It was excellent! My room was also near an elevator and I never heard it. Very well soundproofed room!

    We were in town for three nights for a college softball tournament. We try to stay at reasonably priced hotels and appreciate cleanliness as well as friendly staff. This place had that. All of the front desk people were great and the breakfast attendant was very pleasant and took pride in her job. The food was basic, I always get eggs and bacon, my husband made waffles. The coffee was not the greatest. For some reason we got the handicap room with a double bed so we used the sofa pull out bed as well. I would not recommend that. The mattress on that thing was terrible. The pool is not as big as it shows in the photo, but that is not why we stayed here. It was a good stay. I would go back.

    « Best Best Western in Fresno Area »

    I am in Fresno several times each year, and this is my preferred place to stay when available. Because of its reputation and location, this property frequently is booked to capacity and is not always available. There are other BW properties in the Fresno/Clovis area, but this is, by far, the superior unit. From guest services to room to breakfast to location, you will not be disappointed at this location just east of Fresno Avenue at Shaw Avenue off Hwy 41 -- and just 6 miles east of Hwy 99. Best access to the hotel for east-bound travelers is to turn north on Fresno Avenue and right at the first street, entering the hotel parking lot from the driveway at the end of the cul-de-sac. Rooms here are always fresh smelling and spotlessly clean on check-in. Some reviewers comment on the street noise if occupying one of the even numbered rooms parallel to Shaw Avenue. My only "complaint" concerns the increasingly common use of half-size bed pillow at hotels of all types. I personally find them annoying and not conducive to a good night's sleep. Having one or two full-size pillows in the room would be helpful.

    « OK, but could be so much better »

    We were in the mobility accessible room with 1 king and a sofa bed. Bathroom was very good and wheelchair accessible, however, the tiled shower floor was slippery and we could have used a rubber mat. We had two problems with the beds. 1) Sofa bed was bad. My husband could feel every spring in the very thin mattress. He had to put a blanket down to try to cushion it more, but it was still very uncomfortable. One of those memory foam mattress pads would have been helpful. I wish you had offered it upon check in, especially if you already know the problem with the sofa beds. Better yet, it would be nice to have a different configuration for your mobility accessible room---offer two queen beds instead of just a king + sofa bed. 2) The king sized bed was too tall. It's nice for an able bodied person, but for a person in a wheelchair, it is next to impossible to get into the bed without help. You need the height of the bed to be the same as the height of the wheelchair seat in order for a person to be able to transfer to the bed independently. As it was, the height of the king sized bed was way too high and it took two of us to lift and "flop" our adult daughter onto the bed. Then we had to move her body into the correct sleeping position. Two people assisting can do it, but a wheelchair- bound person, traveling independently, would find it very difficult, if not impossible, to use your bed. Best Western needs to go a step further and not just simply comply with what the law says about square feet, door width etc. As management personnel you need to actually put yourself in the place of a wheelchair bound person and try to use your facility. We've stayed in many hotels and you aren't the only ones with the bed problem, but you would be the first to actually do something about it.

We had a king suite well worth the small extra cost as it provided more space and allowed one to sleep even if the other stayed up to read. The suite has an extra small room and a second TV. Breakfast was rather poor and we even skipped it the second morning.

    « Nice staff, hard beds »

    Staff was super nice, friendly and helpful. Location was good for me. Rooms are a decent size, clean. Breakfast was eggs and potato and coffee for me, it is included in the hotel. Wifi worked really well. Arrived in the afternoon and all seemed quiet, when I got back later that night whoever was upstairs was so noisy for hours till after midnight. Same thing in the am, sounded like a pile of monkeys. Hallway you can hear every thing. I slept with ear plugs so that helped. Beds are very hard and not comfortable for me and mine seemed to sag on one side.

    « Friendly service & spacious rooms »

    The customer service was great. The breakfast had many choices and everything was fresh. Our room (king suite) was tastefully decorated, comfortable, and up-to-date. This hotel is conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, and highway for travel. The value was good!

    « Great deal and nice rooms »

    It was the nicest Best Western that I have stayed in hence the plus. But the area is not the newest or nicest location, however it is easy access to the highway and a few exits away from the newer area of Fresno and close to downtown. I will be back again if my usual downtown location is not available. The breakfast had more than most continental breakfasts do.

    « Very Relaxing Time »

    My husband and I stopped at the Best Western Plus Fresno Inn to relax for an evening. We liked it so much we stayed an extra day. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Fine in Fresno. »

    Actual rating = 3.25 The Best Western Plus in Fresno is notch above the usual Best Western accommodations. Our room with two queen beds was a bit larger than average. The bathroom though, was very small, and the single sink vanity was in the entrance-way. All areas of the room, lobby, and pool were extra clean. The pool area feels like a last minute addition the hotel, situated at the front of the building and very tiny. There might be enough space for 15 people, but no more. Check in was quick, efficient, and professional. We asked for, and received, a room on the top floor. The beds were comfortable and the A/C was surprisingly quiet. We heard no traffic noise. The complimentary breakfast was as good as any, but the breakfast room is too small to be comfortable. We returned to our room with breakfast in hand. There are 3 or 4 good restaurants within easy walking distance, located street side at the decent mall directly across the street.

    « Friendly and responsive staff, without exception »

    I ended up staying for 11 days - much longer than planned - while in town on an energy efficient buildings research project. The entire staff was great - friendly, welcoming, and willing to go out of their way to help. Thank you to Randy, John, Mike, Christi, Julie, and others I may not have meet, but who all work together to create such a welcoming atmosphere.

    « Right in the middle of town »

    Stayed here for one night on a trip from Tahoe to Los Angeles. Hotel was very near the highway and across the street from a mall. So... that made it a little noisy from road traffic, but very convenient to restaurants and shopping. As with most Best Westerns, the room was very comfortable and clean. The free breakfast was very good but the breakfast room was too small to accommodate all the guests staying there. We heard from one of the servers that they were going to expand that area to include some outside patio seating. A great place for one night stop.

    « Great sleep »

    We stayed in Fresno on our way out of California and had the best night's sleep at this hotel. It was clean, quiet, easy to get in and out of and had a friendly staff, thanks Randy! The only thing is the pool is very small as well as the hot tub and is located at the very front of the building.

    « Passing through Fresna area. »

    We were driving from LA to Yosemite and decided to break our journey here. Pleasant hotel with old fashioned looking furnishings. Our king bed room was large with a smallish bathroom with the shower over the bath. Friendly and helpful staff at front desk. They suggested a restaurant for dinner with a courtesy bus so you could have a drink if you wanted. Numerous shopping possibilities near by. Free parking
