Oh my word. The smell. How is it the last 10 reviews on trip advisor (which I hurriedly scanned while we were on the highway) did not mention the cow country smell? Maybe because it's taken as a given. But friends, this is not trivial passing whiff. We ran from our car to our room. And even so, throughout the... More

This was a very convenient place to stop while driving between SF and LA. Normally, we'd just drive the entire distance in one go, but since we had a very late start, we decided to stop midway rather than drive all night, and we're glad that we did. The room was very clean and quiet, and the staff was friendly.... More

This property is fine for a one night passing through town stop which is what I did. It's a step up from a motel 6 but it is somewhat dated and the bathroom in our room had obviously had some poor quality repair work done and was a bit dirty. Would I stay here again only if I was passing... More

We have stayed at the Big Country Inn before and always return on our drives down I-5 because it is convenient, clean, with easy access to the rooms near the parking area. And the breakfast is excellent.

The rooms were very clean and had a lovely smell! Staff was also good. I would stay again if we were driving from L.A. to Napa Valley, as it's just about 1/2 of the way up the 5. Just outside of our room was a large patch of grass. This was good, as we had our dog with us.

Really liked the appearance and layout of this hotel. The rooms were situated in a number of rows with a winding walkway in between, more like a southern resort. Also the recommendation to the Harris Ranch Restaurant across I5. Ended up there on New Years Eve (among many others experiencing quality dining). A 5 o'clock breakfast opening was great for...

The outside doesn't look like your typical Best Western Inn, but considering it was close to HWY 5 and across the highway from Harris Ranch where we were having xmas dinner, it was quiet and the size of the room made our stay very comfortable. I won't go back to Harris Ranch for dinner but I would stay in this... More

We use this hotel when traveling between No. & So. CA. It's a good mid-way point. It's always clean, and comfortable. The staff are friendly and professional. The breakfast is general fare for this type of hotel.

If your staying over night its a nice place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff. If you need to stay on Coalinga for a day this isn't a bad option. Easy access to and from freeway and plenty of gas stations near by. If you want a quality dinner you can go to Harris Ranch.

First of all, this motel is laid out so that all rooms are good ones. It is one level, making it very easy to arrive late at night and get your belongings installed in the room. Also, the breakfast room is very well maintained, with a fair variety of offerings. You may need to book early, as this is a... More
