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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 59Traveler Pool and breakfast choices
The pool area was very small. It was overtaken by one large group which made it very difficult for anyone to use the facility. There were some undesirable activity going on, which was brought to the attention of the front staff however I am not sure whether it was dealt with or not. I did not pursue it further as I was checking out the next day.
The food choices for breakfast was fair. I have stayed there before and it was much better.
Overall it was good.

The hotel is in close proxicimity to our family; and we always stay here even during the holidays, which is always festive and most enjoyable. The staff is very accommodating and professional. Breakfast and pool most enjoyable - in fact our grand children think we own it cause we stay there so much!

Of all the Holiday Inn's and Inn Express's we stayed at on our 10 day trek to Northern California this was -by far- the nicest friendliest place we stayed at.Not only was the room neat and clean ,and the service excellent - but they surprised the guests with a little free happy hour that night . What a treat after a long day on the road.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sammysmom No worry!
Recently stayed for one night at this hotel and on the way home we realized that we had left our clothes hanging in the closet in our room. I called the hotel from the car as we were too far away to return. The clerk was very helpful and said they would send them back. When I got home I called them again. She had the clothes right there at the desk and said she was just going to call me to confirm the mailing address. She was delightful and I received the clothes the next day. No hassle at all. We have stayed here before and would definitely stay here again. I wish I had gotten the clerk's name - she definitely deserves a gold star for her efforts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DeadMouse122 Dead Mouse in trap!
This is our first stay at a Holiday Inn Express in quite a while. As soon as we walked into what seemed a clean room, we noticed a really unpleasant smell. We went to the front desk and ask for some air freshener. The lady said she would be to our room in a few minutes. She showed up with some spray from housekeeping. She said to try it and see if it helped. It didn't. Upon further investigation,( pulling out refrigerator and removing mouse trap complete with decomposing mouse inside) we took it to the front desk, showed it to the lady, and said we thought this would help more than the spray. She really didn't want to see it , and ask me to put it in the trash outside.
This mouse didn't just start stinking when we walked into the room, housekeeping had to have smelled earlier in the day. Where's the communication? where's the manager?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DebMD This is top value and close to freeway for on and off trips.
With relatives in Fresno, we have stayed in this hotel several times and we have always been very pleased with everything. The people are very helpful, we work out, enjoy the pool and spa, think breakfast was nice, and the rooms have everything we need. The beds are just a little hard, my husband said. One night wasn't bad but the second night, he got out the hid-a-bed. I use lots of pillows anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoboticsWizard Great stay - staff went over and above
Stayed there with my daughter on a school outing. Room was comfortable and quiet (we were on he highway side, you can hear the road noise but that sort of thing does not bother me).
Breakfast was great, and included warm food. Liked all the juices and milk available.
They staff was friendly and helpful. I left a nice leather jacket behind when I left, then called them a day or so later. They found it, and mailed it to me. Speaks a lot for their staff when something like that does not just "disappear", so I am giving this place 5 stars.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TEG6 Great staff noisy air/heater
The property was very convient for our Christmas visit.
However the wall heater/air conditioner which was controlled by a wall unit was VERY noisy we turned it off when got to the room. The staff apologized and gave us a couple of suggestions to no avail.
Also, the elevator shuddered upon arriving at the third floor, a little unnerving. Again the front desk was apologetic and said they were aware of the issue and that a repair person was scheduled to take care of it.
