On our way south this year, my wife and I stayed at the Big Country Inn. It had a really nicely kept property and the rooms were big, modern and spacious. Breakfast was the usual for Best Westerns. The A/C unit was quiet and modern. You are off the highway just enough so that it is quiet. The pool area... More

Best Western Big Country Inn, is a nice place to stay. It's conveniently located right off I-5. I stay here when I travel from Northern Ca. to Southern Ca. The Motel staff is friendly, helpful & professional...and truly care about making the guest feel welcome & comfortable. The rooms are clean and comfortable...Internet isn't always good, but I think that's... More

Easy on/off; wide range of food nearby; clean; moderately priced; better than average breakfast. Also, a good break-point for a PHX-SFO trip. Feed lots nearby. This is my preferred stop-over for 22 years. Always reliable with continuing improvements to the basic plant. Reservations suggested.

Travel to Coalinga intended for sleep after a long travel day. The hotel was easy to drive to but the room was older and smelly. The staff was nice and friendly and the breakfast was adequate. The hotel is located next to a Dennys restaurant and gas stations and fast foods allow the traveler options.

We travel up and down the I-5 frequently, and have tried many of the motels and inns in the area already, looking for the best price. This time, we wanted a little more space. While the room cost more than the average I-5 motel, it was still overall worth it. The room had two double beds, and a sofa bed.... More

Good location to spend the night. gas stations and a Denny's two minutes away. we were assigned a 'handicap' room, although we are not handicap. As we were a 'walk in' I assume the other rooms were booked. Dinner at Denny's....so what can I say about that? The food was bland and totally tasteless, long waits due to few waitresses.... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience. We are a small hotel with only 48 units and tend to sell out quickly, which is probably why you ended up with an ADA room. I am sorry to hear that the breakfast food was no up to par, due to our small kitchen space we... More

i have been staying at this hotel for many many years. It has kept with the times with respect to maintenance and some upgrades. It is always clean and tidy. The breakfast is decent although in a very small room which makes for overcrowding very quickly. For first time travelers be prepared for the unkind aroma of the animal feed... More

A nice clean Best Western along I-5. Just a highway stop so don't expect any fine dining. Denny's is about all you can expect. Clean rooms, however hot water for shower was difficult to control. Big cattle ranch nearby, so expect a bit of farm odor.
