Guest Recommendations
"I booked a double bed suite over the internet and when I got there all they had was a queen w/ a pull out bed. I ended up having to sleep on the poll-out because my kids had to take the bed. I did not rest at all. I told the clerk when I arrived that we had requested a double bed room but he just told me that he would give my money back if I was not happy. Every hotel in the area was sold out because of the homecoming game and he knew that. I will not be booking another room there again."
Cathy from Moorpark, CA US rated Best Western Plus Fresno Inn 2 out of 10 on October 16, 2005
"Our hotel stay could have been better our neighbors above us were very very noisey teenagers who were staying at the hotel for a tennis tournament, there were 3 or 4 of them above us and they were dropping things on the floor stomping. We were there only one night and the hotel met our expectations but will stay on a top floor next time"
Peggy from Orangevale, CA US rated Best Western Plus Fresno Inn 8 out of 10 on September 11, 2004
