Hotel Overview

The beauty of Mother Nature is right in your back yard when you select this Coalinga hotel nestled in the heart of the real California.

A couple of things define the region around this Coalinga hotel. The Annual Horned Toad Derby Carnival and WHAMOBASS Hot Air Balloon Festival draw crowds from around the country. There's something to be said about the kind of excitement that surrounds traditional fun.

These unique events aren't the only thing happening near our Coalinga hotel. The Lemoore Naval Air Station hosts a few must-see events, while the Harris Ranch Restaurant dishes up fine dining with local ingredients. If you're searching for the best all-American meal of your life, there's no reason to search any further.

Fun and games are endless at the local Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino. However, you've already won the jackpot by discovering a Coalinga hotel that treats every guest like family. Whether you're in town for the Coalinga State Hospital or West Hills Community College, a touch of home is the trick for a relaxing, revitalizing stay.

Many business travelers call our Coalinga hotel their home away from home. We are proud to host employees of the State Department of Corrections at Pleasant Valley as well as local colleges and hospitals. Our service men and women are special, regular guests. Nothing gets you ready for the work day better than a complimentary full breakfast featuring piping hot eggs, stacks of fresh fruits and sweet pastries, a selection of cereal and yogurt, and gourmet coffee.

Don't forget to dedicate some time to exploring and recreation. The Tulare County Fair is an absolute must. The R.C. Baker Museum, Benitoite California State Gem Mine, Coalinga Cinema Reel Time Entertainment, and rodeos and bike races are all popular. There's no end to the options near this comfortable Coalinga hotel. What's on your agenda?

Reserve your spacious accommodations at Best Western Big Country Inn and prepare to be pampered! Enjoy your stay.
