I know, you get what you pay for but really, this was bad. I refused to walk on the carpet in my bare feet and put shoes on even to walk to the bathroom. I don't know how old the tub was but there were spots on the tub floor that were worn bare. I wouldn't even use the shower... More

We made a mistake with our date but the female checkin staff was so wonderful to accommodate us. We were so relieved to have a clean and convenient place to stay on a busy Saturday night in Fresno. Room is of adequate size with microwave and coffee maker. It is also close to the state university.

We went there with a big group of friends. Rooms were nice, but sleeping quality was unacceptable. Room was very hot, and the AC actually had just two settings: ON and OFF. I mean, there was also the temperature, but it didn't work. It was very noisy, and fans are at the same level as the bed, so air gets... More

I booked this room last minute and I was very extremely disappointed! The room we got was a double bed, the beds had an old bedspreads over a torn, dirty blanket. The room also has burgundy carpet filled with stains. Most of the light fixtures were broken. The room smelled disgusting, keep out of this place! The place was so... More

I've stayed here twice and each time I was going to a concert at the Save Mart Center. It is literally right across the street from the venue so you don't have to pay for concert parking and can drink in your room beforehand.

There's an old expression that you get what you pay for---well, that's the case here. The University Inn is an OK place if you aren't expecting a great deal.

The hotel was not far from good places to eat. Syaff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Only problem: I didn't realize how close we'd be to the freeway....a little noisy, but it was nothing my earplugs couldn't fix.

Horrible horrible experience!!! My girlfriend and I spent two nights at University Inn, everything looked promising until we had a complaint. Upon arrival our room was not even ready when we booked in advanced. The clerk offered us a room with two beds, a little unsure at first but we agreed. My girlfriend ended up asking if we could be...
