I stayed here coming home a trip from NorCal. Clean, basic motel to break up that awful boring drive down the 5. Thank goodness the ac worked well as it is very hot in summer. The only downside was the free breakfast. The hard boiled eggs seemed to be several days old and were hard and rubberey. Room was large... More

My wife and I were in the wine country for 3 days at a family reunion. We left for home in Southern California on Sunday at 11AM. Traffic was bad, so we decided to call ahead. I found this new BW on my cell phone and called for a reservation. All the ADA rooms were taken, so we settled for... More

This property is attractive and clean and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. If they upgraded their toiletries and added a small workout room this could easily be a Best Western Plus. A note to frequent BW travelers, this property stops serving the complimentary breakfast at 9:00 a.m. rather than the customary 10:00 a.m.

Great place for an overnight pit-stop to break up the long journey between San Francisco and Los Angeles on Highway 5. Reasonably priced, rooms were clean, quiet, good sized with air conditioning, free wifi and breakfast (a good shower too)!

Although I did not expect much from this desolate-seeming stopover off the 5, I actually enjoyed my brief stay. I slept very well, and had an easy time checking in and out. The staff seemed a little fatigued--not a surprise in the 100-degree heat. I was completely beat. But the young woman behind the desk used positive techniques to connect... More

This is an OK place to stay if you need a place to crash for the night. Other than Harris Ranch, there's nothing around except gas stations, fast food joints, and Denny's. My room wasn't fancy, but it was surprisingly free of road noise (maybe that's because the air conditioner drowned it out) and it had the essentials. It was... More

I hate give this place a great review, it is hard enough to get a room here when you want one. The place is like being at home. The rooms are always quiet and very clean. The staff is always on the ball for anything you need. Please don't stay here, I might need the room for myself at the... More

The Best Western, Coalinga is conveniently located close to Interstate 5 and excellent dining. The rooms are clean, roomy, and conformable. We have stayed at this hotel several times when traveling through this part of California. It is good value for the area.

We enjoy stopping at this convenient location right off I-5; it's one of our favorite stops. We had a nice clean, large room and good breakfast, too. There are places to eat nearby, but we arrived late and had eaten dinner earlier...but glad to have a nice breakfast in the morning.
