Honestly I couldn't understand the overwhelming air freshener in the room when we walked in ... until the wind shifted our way from Harris Ranch. Yuck. Would I stay here again? Possibly. Would I stay here again if I had a choice? No. Room was clean; no shampoo in the built in dispenser in the shower.

We've stayed here a few times in the past 7 years. Now find that's its a little shabby and the beds are past their due date and the bed and bath linens are worn. Wouldn't stay here next time through. The locations is convenient and there's lots to do in the area -- but its time for a makeover

Interstate 5 sometimes seems very long, and a good break point in a very long stretch can be found near Coalinga, CA. The Best Western at exit 334 (junction of CA 198) is very comfortable, with a campus-style layout well protected from freeway noise. It is just across the freeway from Harris Ranch, which permits a very nice dinner and... More

Nice that there was plenty of room for our UHaul moving truck. We noticed even semi trucks had room to park. The breakfast was the usual great for Best Western. In the morning the wind shifted and the cattle feedlot odors became quite a problem.

We stay in Best Westerns often. This is a fine little hotel, with clean rooms. Located right beside a Denny's (which is nice) and just off the I-5, making it a Decent Location. Pros. Location Cleanliness Cons No workout area. BRUTAL wifi.

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

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.
