Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by quack, quack Loved the happy hour...rooms were great
The happy hour was a great plus (wine and beer) after a day of driving. Rooms are very clean and up-dated; beds are comfortable.
Trains can be a little disturbing in the middle of the night but not enough to keep me from staying here again. Staff was great from the front desk, to happy hour to breakfast to the cleaning service. Easy to find off the 99 and a couple of restaurants within a short walk.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 0ber0n Noisy air conditioner
Very disappointed in this property. The room air conditioner had a very noisy fan whose fan speed could not be adjusted - it was always on high. It was very hot and the A/C had to be run almost continuously; the noise made it difficult to get good sleep.
This HIE also didn't offer traditional amentities that we were used to - e.g. cookies in the late afternoon/evening.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by eric502 Not what I expect from HI Express
Front desk staff was inattentive. Did not acknowledge us as Priority Club Members. I had to ask to make sure we were listed as members. The next time we stopped by the desk, she was missing and the desk was unattended for several minutes so we left. The following time, she was sitting in the common area watching TV and did not get up to see what we needed. The AC unit was noisy and did not keep the temp even in the room. We got a room on the freeway side of the hotel and the traffic noise was fairly significant. If you stay, ask for a room away from the freeway. This stay was completely out of character for HI Express and was probably an anomaly. I would give it a second chance if I need a hotel in Fresno.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Sandersons Two problems: (1) Air conditioner...(2) Elevator
Not unexpected, but the A/C was extremely noisy, and in fact, we
turned it off during the night.
As for elevator, it was extremely slow. Perhaps it was the tour that
also was staying with you on the night we did.

New property, handicap rooms are compliant (including toilet height of which is not listed on website). Room amenities are comfortable (including wireless internet). Included breakfast has a good selection and food is great. The staff are courteous, friendly and helpful. Had a great night stay. I recommend this property to all.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vagabond welder Nasty microwave
The inside of the microwave was nasty looked like it had never been cleaned . The outside of the hotel looked nice , but for a newer hotel the rooms were pretty beat up . Maybe I got a bad room , I would stay there again to give it a second chance .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CierraDH Should have informed me
I would think with the amount of construction going on they would have tried to book me in a room not on the side of the freeway as all the construction was during the night. When I checked in at 330pm, as check in is 3pm, they made me wait 5-10 minutes because they were "Trying to find a room ready". I said did I read something wrong check in is at 3 correct? Then they gave me a room, it was very loud outside allllllllllll night long.
My room was not extremely clean, the bathroom shower had hair in it definitely not mine, very dark course hair if you know what I mean. I cleaned it out myself.
The cleaning ladies were knocking on my door around 930AM to clean when check out was not until 11AM and I was still sleeping. This was very disruptive as I hadn't slept well with the construction and needed to drive/travel the next day 6 hours.
I just feel the staff lacked some communication and should be trained better then that. I will be looking into other places to stay when I come to Fresno for work.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Platinum member Staff??? What staff???
To fund staff members was difficult and for them to actually carry through with what try said they wouldndo was even more difficult. We found a long dark hair in the shower. Pillows we were given from the front desk were stained and souled- given to us that way for us to put the cases on after being told that would be done and waiting for us when we returned for the evening. Service was lousy! Staff Definately needs training!! Hotel is situated between a busy freeway and train tracks. Fairly quiet though. The worse part was the checkout. First we had to find the clerk as it seems she was always in the kitchen in the morning. Then our free night stay bill did not show that it was free. Just was not what we expected from a newer holiday inn property!!!!

Very happy with our overnight stay. Although a small property, it was very comfortable, well maintained and the staff accommodating to our youth hockey group. Free breakfast in the morning a big plus for hungry hockey players.
Easy on, easy off to HWY 99.
Only downside to our stay (and a minor one) was the freight train noise at zero-dark-thirty in the morning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by visitor456 Only as a last resort!
The weather had been frigid for days, and the bed was still made with the summer weight comforter; there no additional blankets in the room. The heater/ac unit sounds like a jet engine, and since it was very cold, it ran often during the night. Try sleeping thru that! The bathroom floor is tile (yes, easy to keep clean), but apparently it is also unnecessary to expect to be warm after showering. There is no ventilation of any kind in the bathroom, including heat for the winter months. The mirror is a foggy mess, and my feet are blocks of ice. This is the second visit to this hotel, and again, the alarm clock was showing the incorrect time. One would think a clock would be stupid-proof to set, yet the models used by H.I.E. apparently require a member of Mensa to adjust to the correct time. It was incredibly frustrating.
This IS NOT a 4 star hotel, by any stretch of the imagination.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 56Sharon not up to previous stays
We've stayed here four or five times; our last visit we were somewhat disappointed. After this stay, we will be trying another place to stay. No one was rude but no one was particularly welcoming either. And it was disappointing to be told that since it was a busy weekend they weren't honoring any discounts (such as AAA).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by laaurabeth dirty bathroom and poor service
The bathroom was dirty. There was toothpaste on the door jam, splatters of toothpaste and white stuff on the sink faucet and the bath tub faucet was gunky. The tub was quite dingy too. My daughter-in-law and I had spent the day hiking and climbing stairs in Sequoia National Park and would have asked for a different room if we hadn't already unloaded the dolly and weren't too exhausted to move.
However, the next morning as I checked out I let the front desk clerk, Jasmine, know how disappointed I was with the room. I explained that I was a Priority Club Platinum Elite member who traveled regularly and stayed with this brand because of my desire for cleanliness. We stayed at 5 different properties this trip and this was the only one that was dirty like this. I asked her to pass on my complaints to the manager and told her I would be writing a review on my stay, but she seemed very nonchalant and unapologetic about it all. I highly recommend picking another property in Fresno if you are in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Miraj23 Terrible customer service
I had no problem with the hotel except the fact that they ran out of bacon or sausage when I can down for breakfast at 8:30. The worst part was when I came in and was not greeted, no ihg thanks, no nothing..he just said id, credit card, 3rd floor, you are done...that was it..what terrible service and it felt like he was mad or something.Gotta get a better service guy.I plan not to come here anytime.worst part is I have been here before and that was the worst service from a hotel employee ever.

The cleaning staff are great! Very responsive. Front Desk Staff are very professional and courteous.
Overall the Fresno Northwest Herndon Holiday Inn Express is clean and comfortable.
A more varied egg and meat breakfast would be nice for those who are staying more than one or two days.
Rooms are very clean and comfortable.
