US Hotel Review – Holiday Inn Express & Suites Fresno South

We stopped at Fresno for a night because we are going to Yosemite the following day.

I have stayed in few hotels in Holiday Inn Express in UK and find the setting and arrangement are the similar to the one in US too. Since it is an “express” hotel, you will find the services are pretty standard and with reasonable price. The hotel target for business travelers with short-term stay.

You will find Holiday Inn Express usually found in suburbs and besides freeways.  Even though the hotel is just next to the highway I did not experience any noise from my hotel room because my room is not facing the highway.

There are few restaurants beside the hotel within walking distance 5 mins. Fast food chain such as In-N-Out Burger, Taco Bell and Dennys.

Final thoughts :

 Holiday Inn Express Fresno South  has an easy access off Highway 99, easy for travelers who are on the road, rushing from one place to another.

Good thing about this hotel is there are many fast foods restaurant within walking distance.  We were so tired after a long day on the road so we just  walk few out 2 mins to reach out for our favourite In-N-Out Burger.

  1. That sounds like a nice over night stay. Everything important was there, it was decorated nicely, clean and love the small kitchenette in the room. Then breakfast and be on your way. Sounds pleasant enough.

  2. This hotel looks comfy. I wish all hotels had microwaves. Every time I travel we go eat and then I have to eat cold leftovers not the worst thing in the word but a microwave would be great lol

  3. This looks like a lovely place to stay. It has all the things you need included too so thats really handy.

  4. It is nice to know that there is a clean, safe and convenient place to ‘hang our hat’ before heading off to Yosemite. I love the standard of Holiday Inn express, giving visitors a familiar experience no matter where you are in the world.

  5. Looks like a very decent affordable hotel, and convenient for those headed to Yosemite. It’s always good to see objective reviews from someone who has stayed there, hotel websites can be misleading.

  6. Looks like a very nice hotel to stay. Rooms, beds everything looks good. And what to say about breakfast. I liked the breakfast area. Thanks for traveling and providing such amazing reviews on hotels

    1. Dear Lucy,

      You are right, I have stayed in few Holiday Inn Express when I travel around UK. It is pretty standard that comes with a small workout gym, a business center and “complimentary” breakfast. It has all the basic thing a traveler needs.

  7. Thank you for sharing this! Looks like the right place to stop in for a little bit. I’m glad you had a great stay!

    1. Dear Megan,

      You are right, this is certainly a good place to stop for a while – to break your journey from Las Vegas to San Francisco. From LV to Fresno already cost me 6-7 hours of driving not including any stopping. I can’t complain Holiday Inn Express Fresno South is good enough for a short stay.
