We and our friend stayed at this nice place for one night. It was very beautiful with flowers and fruit trees. The grounds and the swimming pool water are clean. The room is large and quite. Next morning, we walked to visit the underground garden next street. There are Costco and other stores nearby. Fresno is close to three National... More

Very nice hotel. Perfect for your trips to seqouia or yosemite park. Very lovely owners, they care a lot. Breakfast is great! The hotel garden is very beautyful, so exotic. Very clean, comfy bed. Restaurants are nearby. Near highway, but very quite.

Definitely a unique spot in Fresno. Super clean, the jacuzzi is refreshing, which is why we took the King bed room that is about $50 more than the regular rooms. The place is clearly converted apartments, which makes them spacious, much more so than a chain hotel. The older man who was at reception we believe was the owner. The... More

This inn is located between Yosemite NP and Sequoia NP [ a bit more than an hour's drive from each NP] but it is more than worth it; first of all, although not really cheap, it is much cheaper than in or close to the NPs as you can expect but what you get for your money is more than... More

We stayed in this hotel on our way out of Yosemite park, and were really pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly, and the place is just gorgeous. When you walk in the lobby you feel a sense of calm as it definitely has some Feng-Shui decorating elements, and the classical music playing in the background enhances the atmosphere.... More

The owners are most friendly people, attentive to their guests' needs. The rooms are simple, but clean, with nice furniture. Bathroom in our room in need of a repaint. Good WiFi signal. Good breakfast; I would say better than similarly positioned motels. However: The hotel is just adjacent to a noisy freeway and the sound isolation is insufficient for this... More

We have stayed here twice now and it is great. The rooms are very clean. The atmosphere is wonderful. You would never know your one block from the freeway. They have fresh fruit from the garden every morning. The whole grounds are planted in various fruits and veggies. This is a small business that deserves support. The only place I... More

Stayed for 4 nights in July. The rooms are very basic and bathrooms not great. AC was not very soft, but could not switch it off with the heat in July. Free wifi was good and reliable. Breakfast was very basic with little variety. Fruit from the hotel's garden was a nice touch. Staff is friendly and helpful. But for... More

Selected this hotel based on rating with booking.com and trip advisor. Based on the rate I was expecting a three star hotel which this is not. Very dated room in need of repair. Noisy AC made it hard to sleep. Wierd breakfast selection with no freshfruit. The parking was good and I could walk right from my motorcycle into the... More
