This is a bare essentials hotel and is not upscale. The rooms are extremely large. The bathroom could definitely use an update. We got new wood floor rooms with USB charging stations, awesome! It was rough around the edges, but I felt it gave it character and the location is excellent. That being said, the hotel was relatively clean and...

Aside from not having working heat in my room and it not being fixed after 14 hours I found myself looking over my shoulder as I walked to my room. After changing rooms my tub didn't drain and had no hot water. RUN AWAY.

We really enjoyed our one night stay. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was just right for us! The free hot breakfast was just Ok. You can't beat the price for the room. The hotel was exactly what we needed for our Yosemite trip. It is close enough to drive. There was a nice quiet swimming pool,...

Spacious room with clean and comfortable beds. Hot breakfast with sausage, ham, and egg. We stayed at the University Square Hotel while on our visit to Fresno State University, located adjacent to the University campus. It was located next to Marie Callender's and Black Angus restaurants. The hotel was a basic, older style with European design. I would definitely say...

We always like to look good in anything, but be warned and don't even consider booking at this dirty and unorganized and unhealthy hotel.

Room before taxes: $62.31. Hotel is in what appears to be a good neighborhood and there's a good degree of security measures. Room was decently sized and had a fridge. There's a nice courtyard that made it feel nicer than what it was. The free breakfast, while not gourmet, was satisfying and free. Powdery eggs and french fries were ok,...

it was clean and the bed was ok, the main reason to stay here is that its close to the football stadium. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and even a halfway decent sports bar, Swigs. The game we attended ended at 10:30p and pretty much everything was closed by then. Went back to the room and could...
