This is the third time we have stayed at the Best Western Orchard Inn. When we arrived and went to check in, however at first they couldn't find our reservation despite handing the person at the desk the booking.com print out. Finally it was found. Went to our room to find there was no shower chair in the shower (We had called in advance and requested an ADA room - same room as we had had before, room 111 ) there were no tissues in the Kleenex space and not even an empty box, lastly there was no hair dryer. So I went to the front desk and they handed me a box of Kleenex, said they would go and look for a shower chair but were quite puzzled there wasn't one. Lastly argued with me regarding a hair dryer, said it was hanging on the wall. It wasn't and when a hair dryer and the shower chair were delivered it was obvious the hair dryer was brand new. Lastly there were no little facial wipes. Went to the front desk and was given ONE. Then we tried to turn on the floor lamp. It didn't work. We finally figured that out, it was unplugged. Then we tried to call the front desk and the phone didn't work, it too was unplugged. Does no one check the room????? When I reported this to the front desk they brushed me off with oh well," is it working now? Maybe the painter forgot to plug it back in". The TV was plugged in and it was in the same area. The next day again there were no little facial wipes, no shampoo, no soap, no conditioner, no coffee, no tea all of which are listed as items in the room on the website for amenities. The ONLY positive mention we are able to make is Mariah in the breakfast area. Always greeted us with a smile and kept everything well stocked and clean. If the rest of the personnel were even half as attentive and caring as Mariah, we would not feel so compelled to write such a bad review. Don't think we will ever go back unless we are contacted by the manager with an apology.
Checked in for a few days to work on a nearby Cell facility. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable of the area. Check in was quick and painless and afforded our party two rooms needed for the remainder of our stay.
Hotel is nice and clean.rooms are up to date friendly staff. showed up and they offered me free wine and told me that I also get free breakfast in the morning!!! So like I said I'm happy with my purchase
Best hotel around stay at other hotels and this one by far as the best for handicapped the staff here at the hotel was really nice and able to help with what we needed breakfast included for the mornings
I called to reserve a room for 1 week. Best Western Orchard Inn offered free parking, full breakfast, Internet (2.92 Mbps download, 0.5 Mbps upload), pool, and hot tub, refrigerator and microwave. The prices were reasonable so I went ahead and booked the room. Not having received a confirmation of the booking, I contacted the hotel directly again and a young man, rather rude and obnoxious, promised to send me a confirmation, and did so … the next day. I found the room to be clean, the bed and pillows to be really nice, and the balance of the staff to be very pleasant, cheerful and helpful. Though the room was clean and comfortable, the door had a fair sized gap on the side and underneath allowing light and some draft into the room but a quite a/c + heater more than maintained the room temperature. The walls were on the thin side so some road noise could be heard day and night but not horrible. I was on the street side, the freeway side may have been noisier. Most neighborly noise was not heard but an amorous couple left little to the imagination one morning. Room construction was mostly okay but I'm not sure the wall-plug cover, that did not cover the electric box hole would pass fire inspection. The breakfast bar offered a pretty nice selection of things to start your day and the waffles were quite nice. Some of the other selections were not the highest quality, but they weren't bad and you really can't complain, after all, it is a free breakfast.
Service was great, room is clean and updated, bed is comfortable. Nice size TV, bath tub is spacious, staff is efficient. Some freeway noise, but otherwise no complaints. I'd recommend staying here if you're in the area.
The front desk worker was welcoming, courteous, & informative. The pool was clean and easily located from our room. Hot breakfast available until 9:30. Room smells slightly stale. Free Wi-Fi with password and login readily available.
I am a long time member of BW so expect all to be equal. This was way below my expectation. I now think one needs to find BW Plus to have a nice experience. Sacramento is great this one is tight and smells of toxic cleaning supplies. Front desk was indifferent to our needs
This is my second stay here and as always the staff is excellent ??the room clean and the bed's comfortable. It's also in a good location that's not to far from everything! It's a great value for the money.
Checked in after a long day of work. The front desk bummed us up to a suite out of no where. Super nice treat for us! Nice, big and clean room! Thank you for a pleasant stay. Close to a shopping center with great selection of restaurants.
Control to the television was very easy to find. Sink water works. Big mirror for my wife to do her makeup and me my hair. A tub is very convenient to shower my son. Clean for my son to run around. Door opens reverse so be careful with the kids fingers and anyone behind the mirror. Great overall stay
We got here at our scheduled time we requested online, but 1 of our 2 rooms were ready. Very pleased with the room area. Very spacious amd comfortable. Appliances are baby friendy. Beds are spacious. Iron bed very useful
Good rates, clean room. Very friendly staff :) They had a very nice selection for breakfast. The air conditioner in the room worked fantastically, kept us nice and cool all night. Water was nice and hot.
This is an awesome place. They have a pool you can swim in and cool down after a long day. Breakfast in bed is always the best at best western. Lots of comfy chairs in the room you can just stop back and relax and call it a day.
Front desk staff was friendly, but didn't take pride in their job. The quality of the rooms left something to be desired... The decor and plumbing have not been updated for a while. The pillows were small and uncomfortable, and the bed was too firm. Breakfast choices were limited, and the same thing was served every day.
Very pleasant stay. Clean rooms, breakfast was above average and very nice staff. This was very close to call fields and restaurants. Older hotel, could use some updates outside but rooms were very nice and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again...

thank you so much for the comments. we really appreciate it. also the update is coming very soon, next month or so.
Easy online booking. Easy check-in. Excited that the hot tub is working in this chilly rain! Happy to have a hot breakfast right here on sight! Rooms were clean and comfortable! Easy access from from freeway. Love having coffee, tea, fridge and micro in room.

Hi Jennifer, thank you so much for taking the time and writing such wonderful review. we really appreciate it.
We used Expedia and upon arrival we had Fast check in, clean room. Fridge and microwave in room. Great parking. Breakfast and WiFi included. What more can you ask for. We had a great time on our trip.
I travel a lot for work and see a lot of bad places. This location was kept very clean and all of the staff were very helpful with all of our requests. It is also really close to some good places for dinner.
My stay at the best western was great the staff was polite and friendly and the rooms were nice with comfortable beds and spacious the cafe next door is really good and a fun place to get a drink ! ..
Another great BW location. Came on a last minute business trip. The front desk clerk was very patient and understanding with check in. The rooms are decent and clean; Best Western standard. No complaints.
Very nice and clean hotel. The Front desk manager was extremely helpful for a last minute reservation of our large group. There is a big mall right next to the hotel which is very convenient. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back for sure!!!
Easy to find, nice quit spot. Clean rooms! The front desk was really helpful with our travel booking problem. Been to many best westerns and this one is one of the better ones I stayed at. I recommend staying!
Hotel has a welcoming feel to it and it is minutes from the outlet mall. Plenty of parking spaces...the front desk guy is friendly and helpful as well. About an hour and a half from the beach in santa cruz and three hours from LA
Very nice, friendly staff good location, will only be here one night but would definitely stay here again Grizzley Rock Grill next door good food, Breakfast bar at hotel, Very nice rooms close to 99 hwy
Overall the place was nice but I'm not much on not having some sort of rug in the room. I fixed the table light. It looked like it hadn't work in sometime. People were nice. Check in was easy. Check out was easy.
I came here for a business trip and the place is wonderful and the staff is very friendly to me. This was a last minute pick and what a great pick it was . I will have a wonderful night and get plenty of rest ????????
We had a crew of 6 people for a few weeks beekeeping and the rooms were great. It was definitely a very welcoming experience staying here; when we left for the day the rooms were already cared for and we've never had problems not having enough towels or toilet paper lol. We've stayed at nearby hotels in the past and we've had problems with having our rooms not being cleaned or not having toilet paper replaced. We've stayed here before and we'll be staying here again for sure. If you're looking for a reliable, reasonably priced hotel that gives you the privacy your looking for this is definitely the place to stay at.
Another great BW property. Staying on our way to Arizona. The Orchard Inn is convenient to the freeway and a 2-minute drive to a huge mall with all the shopping and dining options you could hope for. Clean room and friendly staff. Easy to recommend.
Great stay, second floor view of blossoming almond orchard across the street. Also friendly breakfast staff in free hot breakfast. Clean fresh room comfy bed and overall welcoming stay. Easy access to hwy 99 and Monte vista rd.
Me and another coworker have been here for 10 nights. The hotel staff is very friendly and the cleaning staff does an amazing job every day. We will definitely recommend this place to others traveling ????
Overall the cleanliness of the room was up to par and well kept. They were welcoming to me and my pet, so if you don't wanna leave your fur babies behind...this is the place to bring them with! Plenty of parking as well
I have stayed at this Best Western in the past. My experience this weekend was so bad I don't know if I would go back. I was on the back side of the hotel (facing the freeway) and the noise of the traffic made you feel like you were sleeping on the freeway. I had always stayed on the front side before and it is definitely quieter. However, the biggest problem was very loud music playing until 3:30 am. When I tried to contact the front desk they never answered the phone. The following night the music was turned down a bit but still continued until 3 am. The front desk person could have cared less when he was asked about the noise level in the building. His answer was that he never heard any music. When asked why he didn't answer the phone he said he never heard it. Think they could use a little work on training their desk people.
I recently had the occasion to stay in this Best Western for a nearby dog show. I experienced a lot of VERY loud music starting about 2:00 am. I called down to the front desk for over a half hour at 2:30 without anyone ever answering the phone. In the morning the gentleman that was still on duty from his overnight shift said he never heard the music or the phone ringing for 30 minutes! I asked for the managers name, Edwin, who I called that next day. I was told he was busy and could he call me back. After not hearing form him , I called him back only to be told he had left sick for the day! Not a place I would stay ever again! I will also spread the word to all who show in the area!
This place is dirty and old. Woke up to no water or power caused by their faulty equipment. They were rude and offered no refund. I had to drive an hour out of the way to shower and had to buy coffee and breakfast elsewhere. Avoid at all cost!!
Very friendly staff and great breakfast !! Nice pool and hot tub...Comfortable rooms and great value!! Easy on and off of Hwy 99. Great restaurant and lounge right next door with great food and service!!
I stay here at least once a year for work nearby. The front desk guy, Derek, was awesome! Respectful, helpful and quick. There was a very large swap meet going on in town and it was nuts getting rooms anywhere. I'm glad I made reservations when in advance and chose to stay here! Thanks guys!
The location is in a great place right off the freeway and near gas stations and food. The front desk employee was very friendly and the whole place, even though older, is very well kept and clean. I woukd definitely recommend to family and friends.
The outdoor pool and hot tub are open in winter and very enjoyable. Room was clean and spacious. Very convenient from the highway 99 with minimal noise. Works great for us! Being from out of town, finding a place so nice was really a pleasure and let's face it, any time you have a pool and hot tub after a long day on the road, it is best to take full advantage of opportunity. I really appreciate the complimentary bottle of wine also. That is such s great gesture and will be sure to keep us coming back year after year. We will tell all our fiends and family about the great opportunity
Just as described clean hotel it was a one day visit. The room had a microwave and refrigerator and I like it. Everything was just as described!!!! We walked in we were told of the rules and everything
I often travel through California on highway 99. I really enjoy staying at best western hotels, since I was delivering local I decided to stop at this best western. Plenty of truck parking, safe and convenient. The front desk LADY was very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable of the area. I will definitely stay here again!
Nice comfortable, place. Friendly, helpful front desk staff. Convient location. No laundry facilities, but directed to one near by.. Many stores and restaurants close. Doing a 3 month contract in area and worked well while waiting to get in apartment.
Nice clean comfortable room. It was nice to have plenty of outlets and usb plugs next to the bed. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Coleen at the front desk was very knowledgeable about the area and was helpful at check in.
The Hotel was in a sketchy part of town, with no security patrolling parking lots. You need to use two different remotes to watch a program. No information on the Channel breakdown (nbc, abc etc…) The shower head was low pressure w/only luke warm at best.
I loved how close this hotel was to the event I was attending. It was a little off the beaten path but still close to restaurants, target, and other amenities, but not so close as to hear lots of traffic or have other issues. It was clean, comfortable and easy.
I checked in at approx. 6:00pm just to get some sleep before heading to SoCal checked out around 3:00am but the room was clean and orderly. Seemed fairly old. Hotel rooms near Modesto tend to be high. This was very reasonable. But overall I would stay again.
Great desk people, great freeway access. Quick, easy, and clean. Away from the riff raff and safe from city roaming tweakers. Careful where you stay in central .ca, this location is out of the way and in a good spot.
Great staff! Good breakfast..the smell outside was kind of funky but the restrooms were ok. Location is great and right off the freeway. Every time I stay in Turlock I stay here most definitely without a doubt..
Cockroaches in the room what else can I say I was very disappointed they where pretty big too they where just there crawling on the wall it was pretty gross me and my fiancé where grossed out about that that is the only complain I have
I have to say this is by far one of the best central valleys stays I've ever felt comfortable staying in. From the Elegance to housekeeping to the front desk being polite and outstanding excellency.!! Love it thanks Best Western I Will Be Staying Here again.!!
Great place for the money. The breakfast was filling and good. The staff was excellent and resolved a problem I had immediately. There weren't any drawbacks to staying here - close to freeway access and a mall.
I looked this place up online and was in need of a room for an overnight trip. Spoke to a polite front desk gentleman and his service was quick and easy. Place is clean and nice. Has a flat screen tv and bathroom with coffee and clean towels.
Great stop for the night, large parking for Trucks and great service checking in. There's a restaurant next door so support a family owned business with great take out and full bar. Will definitely stop again on future trips.
This hotel was amazing for the price. Great rooms great service great breakfast with the cutest waffle maker. Its a very convenient location with an awesome bar and grill and an arco within walking distance.
Comfortable and clean. Good breakfast ,clean room and fresh food. Easy access to freeway and quiet sleeping. Good area to stop on your way.There is a pool and hot tub also dog friendly. Dust Bowl Brewery is close by and a good choice for dinner.
I would recommend the hotel to all my contacts. I felt safe and the rooms were well furnished, internet worked fine. I would of like more fresh fruit but other than that breakfast was filling and tasty. Front desk clerks were very helpful and informative about the area.
Good staff, clean rooms, decent breakfast. Use it as a base for business. Next to freeway which is both advantage and disadvantage because of noise. Is pet-friendly and my dog likes the lawn landscape area. Is more of a business stay motel although families would do ok
So I went to this hotel a couple nights ago and I have to say this was the best hotel around, I have been here a couple times and I'm never going to another hotel in the area again! Derek was the nice gentleman at the front desk and he went OUT OF HIS WAY to give us excellent service, he honestly made our entire night! I love every single thing about this hotel! Super clean, right next to the freeway, amazing staff (especially Derek) and there is a CEILING FAN!!! What?! If you are honestly trying to find a place to stay at for a few nights or even over night I highly recommend this place and the beds are suuuper comfortable! THANK YOU BEST WESTERN IN TURLOCK I WILL BE BACK SOON!
Nothing fancy, but fine if all you need is a place to sleep. Room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Could've used some more dusting but wasn't gross. Access to the rooms are from the outside but I felt safe even though the hotel is right off the highway and I was traveling as a single female. Breakfast was great, quite a bit of variety. Not much in the area immediately around the hotel, but there is a gas station / convenience store down the street. Overall, a fine stay.
So happy with this hotel!! Thank you so much for all the help and beautiful suite!! Derek at the front desk was such a great help!! You guys have truly made my wedding weekend if successful one! This place os perfect for a bride to get ready with bridal party!
All the interior rooms and common rooms have been upgraded and are very nice. Staff is wonderful, especially the lady that takes care of the breakfast bar. But it is an older motel on the freeway with cement stairs and outside cement walkways. So it helps to wear earplugs. The breakfast is excellent.
We were a bit disappointed in this hotel. We arrived after a long drive and we're greeted by no one at the front desk. The evening reception clerk was in the room behind the lobby desk. He made no effort in trying to place our rooms together or even nearby, instead putting them on opposite sides of the building. Also, he didn't inform us that the wifi was not working, which is very important for one of my relatives to maintain contact with her family and business in Thailand. We made a second visit to the lobby to ask what the network was called, only to be told the wifi was out in parts of the building, he had supposedly rebooted the router already and they would call their provider two days later on Monday. On the positive side, the rooms were clean and comfortable, while the breakfast was plentiful and tasty with a very hard-working and helpful attendant. Once again, when we went to check out, the day receptionist was nowhere to be seen and again in the back room.
We are regular guests at BW Orchard Inn in Turlock. We stay several times during the year and always have a good experience and are treated very well. Always a very clean room and good breakfast and wonderful staff - friendly and very helpful. Would recommend to fellow travelers and we are always extremely pleased.
No elevator; lots of street noise. No closet. Be careful exiting the bathroom, the eye-level shelf is just beyond the door swing, ready to crack you in the face. Overpriced for what you get. I was expecting something like a Hampton for the price. But this is more like a motel.
It was nice to be greeted by a friendly and helpful Front Desk staff (Derek) when we arrived late after a long drive. The hotel room is clean and spacious. It provides the modern amenities - flat screen tv, multi port charger, fridge, microwave plus a hot breakfast- at a budget-friendly price! Will definitely stay here again when we are in this area!
We were very satisfied with our stay. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Each staff member we met was pleasant and seemed to care about our satisfaction with our room and stay. We appreciated the hot breakfast, since we do not eat carbs. The eggs and sausage and coffee were all great. We will always return to this Best Western when in the Turlock area. Thanks especially to the manager who was very accommodating. We have already recommended this hotel to our family who plan to stay in the area.
Excellent service easy check in. Great room close to freeway quiet area local shopping great rates...i travel alot for work and for the money this is one of the best rooms ive stayed in and its pet friendly always a plus for our little family
This Motel is not downtown, but is close to everything in Turlock or Keyes, Calif. Well maintained and priced right. The Motel is just off the "99" highway and has a several restaurants near buy, including one within easy walking distance..
Great service, friendly staff, great hot tub and pool, and a cozy room. They have free Wi-Fi, the towels were folded into awesome fans. This place is comfortable and affordable. The area is beautiful.
The room was ok, nothing special. It appeared clean, but the beds were so uncomfortable and the bedspreads were wrinkled which made me feel like they were used. The staff members were not the most accommodating. If it were up to me, I would send them to some serious customer service training. Breakfast was more impressive than the room, and had a a variety of choices..the fast food basics, cereal, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, bread and coffee. For the price I might stay here again if I didn't have any other options, but I would rather not.
Very clean rooms, hotel staff very polite and hospitable. Came in to town for 1 night, very good product for the price. Location is near freeway but cannot hear freeway noise from room. Not much food near by but luckily they have a full hot breakfast.
We attended a wedding in Turlock and just needed a room for one night. Based on other reviews we chose this hotel. In comparison to other accommodations, the cost was about 50% less. The room was extremely quiet, the location was excellent (right off the freeway and close to everything), the bed was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious! What more could you ask for? If we ever need to stay in the area again, we will definitely go back!
I stay in hotels up and down Central California. The Best Western in Turlock is one of my favorite. Great staff, hot breakfast and comfortable clean rooms. I highly recommend! And small business owners sign up for automatic upgrade to Diamond status.
Wine is free with this app or whatever great place love lots hugs kisses and the front desk worker great person food good pool is there they have only outside bugs no inside woooo fun fun. There was no ghosts grizzly rock is a place in a lot that has dirt near this place I eat the yogurt in morning I did not sleep bed shower get it
Clean and quiet. Also good customer service! Love the the room have all amenities and the sheets are clean so as the room and no bugs :) in a nice quiet area also you will enjoy your stay as I always come here and get the best customer service avalible
This Inn had high quality service and a professional staff. Good sized room, very comfortable. Great breakfast and good amenities. A small outdoor pool that I unfortunately didn't get to try out. I would recommend this inn for the price if you are looking to stay in the area.
The person that checked us in was so friendly helpful, hotel clean, room great Great parking for trucks with trailers Restaurant is within walking distance .Turn lots of friendly town nice people pleasure doing business with them they're all very caring
The hotel was very clean. The room was very comfortable. I did have a problem with the ceiling fan, but the front desk guy Derrek, took care of it right away. Nice Jacuzzi. It really helped my back after an excruciating long car ride.
I would have to say out of the best westerns this is probably one of the best I've stayed in. Staff at the front desk was polite. The sheets were clean in the pillows were fluffy. Nothing super special, but comfortable enough.
Right off freeway and close to town. Turlock is quaint with good restaurants.Hotel Smells good with newly renovated rooms. And efficient air conditioning and nice bedding. Very nice check in services. Would recommend. Bryan woods San Diego
We stayed at this location last minute for business. The area is more industrial than central Turlock...but I must say, the service was great, the hotel was clean and well kept and one of the best rests ever! The breakfast was delicious and we even enjoyed the pool and hot tub! If we need to come back to Turlock for business, this will be our home away from home for sure!
Awesome staff, and the rooms were cozy and clean. Very close to shopping and restaurants yet not right there next to them which was nice. The only bad thing was the person in the room next to us kept slamming their door and waking my baby up. The kids were also loud.
I really enjoyed my stay here!! I'm very impressed!! I paid the pet fee and brought my dog who lived it! They also have free wine, and absolutely free wifi and a free continental breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay and for the price it was well worth it.
This hotel was wonderful. Service was great. Hbbbjjkkldlnskskhgvdggucivkcufjdififvovovifudifkglvbududifovogidkfogifkvogiduqispfovlviwkskvirheifuwkgkfguekvofuflgysivkvusjglgueovifywkvifwidydivkigogovue
They have free wine. The rooms are clean stayed here before we'll stay here again great parking friendly service all around great Hotel. Close to food close to attractions close to my work site great area nice pool nice hot tub rooms are very nice.
Great hotel.the service was good very respectful the room was excellent I would stay here and recommended two other people the bed was extra soft breakfast was good the scenery was beautiful after a very hard day of work and looking for a room I was very satisfied I took a warm shower late on a nice soft bed was very relaxed
I thought this hotel was very clean and updated though out . I enjoyed the room and the buffet , plus a great staff. It is right off highway 99 , great for trips to Yosemite ,or the Bay area , which ever way you are going .
everyone at Orchard Inn is friendly, smiling, welcoming and helpful. Best second family I could ask for. Great rooms, great pool, quiet location, great parking easy freeway access, highly visible from freeway north and south bound (good signage). I wouldn't stay anywhere else for my weekly business trips to the central CA area.
Lots of parking for trucks, just off the freeway, nice soft newer beds, very clean well maintained and modern. It is really close to a restaurant and bar. Very nice staff too. I would recommend this best western over many I have stayed at
Outdoor swimming pool and free hot breakfast. It's a good deal for the low price! Location is a few miles north of downtown Turlock so that may be a factor, but it's right off Hwy 99 and not far from CSU. Only a mile or two to a huge shopping center with lots of restaurant options.
Good location, easy access to freeway and in town shopping, and college. Freeway noise wasn't bad, even in room we stayed in which was facing freeway. I would ask for room facing away from freeway if it's available.
We've stayed here for many years every time we visit Turlock and have never been disappointed. The room was spacious and very comfortable. When checking in, request the rooms away from the highway. Much quieter. The breakfast buffet is very nice. When we first started staying there, it was in a converted room. They remodeled and now it is in a big room with lots of seating. We look forward to our next trip.
This little outdoor hall hotel is quiet, but close to plenty shopping/food. It has a nice, moderatetly big pool, soothong spa, and comfortable beds. AC a bit noisy, but works very well on a hot day. The room was clean and stocked well. There is a nice little dorm fridge and clear LCD TV.
The people were nice and the service was great and the free bottle of wine with check in, what more can u ask for. I enjoyed the stay for business and plan on returning in the future. I told my supervisor this was one of the best hotel stats ever
We are two brother's who have been traveling down the West coast along the 101, we have been guests at a lot of hotels/motels but this is by far the best and nicest! Great service and very clean and a great pool.
Room was just sort of ok not up to the standards I would expect from BW. On way to Yosemite stayed for one night. Room had a jacuzzi that did not work, a desk chair with a broken/missing wheel and nonexistent internet.
I had checked in on July 8th and checked out on the 10th and one of the first thing I noticed was how beautiful the property was palm trees,pine trees, alot of life around the hotel the man at the front desk was very nice and made me feel very welcome going to my room I noticed the hallways were kind of sticky and there was alot of trash on the plant beds. The room was nice I didn't look it around to much I went straight to bed after a long drive bed was nice good tv nice air conditioner when I woke up to go check out the breakfast I noticed that there was a young man (More on him later) hand picking all the trash in the plant beds and was wiping down the stairs and the stickiness that had been there the night before. The lady in the breakfast room (more on her later) was great good breakfast the man at the front desk was very helpful on things to do around turlock. After getting back to my room I started noticing things that were broken or not working door latch,lights, tub and toilet wasn't draining after calling the desk a young man who honestly looked like he was just released from prison (alot of tattoos didn't really smile in street clothes) came in and started fixing things don't judge a book by its cover he was one of the few things that made this stay bearable very nice and apologetic about things fixed everything in 20 minutes! Over the next few days the maids didn't clean my room good at all and when I tried to bring this to the attention of the front desk man on Saturday morning he seemed more occupied with talking on his cell phone than helping the 3 people waiting in the lobby finally the other thing that made this stay bearable was a lady named tanisha very very nice and professional she had the maids clean my room right away and and even had a lady come double check my room! One thing that really caught my attention is that it seemed as if the young man was the only maintainence guy on the whole property which is pretty big I was told by one of the maids that there was two maintainence workers but he was the only one I saw the whole stay. When I checked out Sunday morning talking to the lady at the front desk was a nightmare. So after putting all this together the verdict is I met a few very nice workers Tanshia and the Young man. Front desk service is not great, the maids are ok but do not clean very well the property looks nice but it's to close to the freeway the pool looked ok but I didn't swim all this for about 100 bucks is the best you get I guess I would probably stay again if I had too because of the nice people that I did deal with but not my first choice next time time to have some costumer service meetings!
Went to Turlock for a college tour and camp with my daughter the hotel is very conveniently located. The staff was kind and helpful and the room was clean and comfirtable. Perfect for what we needed. Inexpensive and close. We would stay again
I like staying at Best Western, however this one had some flies in the room that were annoying...I had to kill about four or five little ones,,, it was a nuisance....otherwise room was ok...didn't call front desk because problem was minor..didn't want to change rooms and all that...so I took take of rthe flies...breakfast was your basic continental which was fine..pool was refreshing. so it was okay. Would I go back..? hmmm Yes, but if the same problem occured I would request a change of room next time. Maybe I just had bad luck with this room, all other BWs I've stayed at have been fantastic.
The room was spacious and tastefully furnished. It was also clean. A nice size television with plenty of channels. It had a refrigerator and microwave which is always welcomed. the breakfast had plenty of choices.
We had a great time at this hotel. We had the family suite and my family just loved it so much. The breakfast was great, the breakfast lady helped me with my little ones by making their waffles for me. Pool was great as well. We will make sure to stop in as our stop to anywhere.
Even just checking in, the man checking us in was so great! We were running late to get ready for a wedding and he got us in as fast as possible. The room was great for the price! Thank you so much for the help!
Our stay was average at this place. Odor in room was the only problem. Professional and friendly staff. Eating places just down the road. Easy on and off access to freeway. Had a nice pool, excellent for families with kids. It was a quiet stay for us, which we needed.
i feel that the stay is very refreshing iam always traveling and the Jacuzzi and the pool is very therapeutic. They make sure that every one has respect and also monitor the noise i feel the price is worth it
I would recommend this Motel to anyone in this area friendly staff and great service located just off the interstate and they have truck parking for CDL drivers the room has a microwave refrigerator and a desk for business purposes
This was one of the best stay at the BW Orchard Inn in Turlock, CA. The staffs are very nice and customer friendly. I was upgraded to family suite with my BW premium rewards card at no extra cost and I wish all the best to keep up their excellence and quality of service!
It is Close to San Joaquin NWR for birding. Just off highway 99. This place is Reasonably priced. Our room had a king sized bed. You can hear some road noise. Comes equipped with a microwave and refrigerator.
I only stayed at the Best Western Orchard Inn 1 night. I got in late and hit the road in the morning. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. There was quite a variety of foods for breakfast. Most of them are not able to be eaten by those who cannot eat gluten. I left in a review on the Best Western site that they get some more options for those of us who must eat gluten free. There is 1 side of the motel that gets traffic noise. I asked for a quiet room and was put on the other side.
I was on the and really needed a break. Extremely clan and we'll run. Big rooms too. Nice shower heads and bar and grill to boot. Breakfast was hot and delicious. The cost was minimal. And it is right off the highway 99 in Turlock, CA. I enjoyed a short three days here and got the rest I so badly wanted. Best in show!
Not a bad place for the price. Right off the freeway, easy check-in, friendly staff. The property is lovely, the room is spacious and the pool area is inviting! The freeway noise isn't noticeable, some of the other reviews said it's really loud? I'd stay here again!
The staff was very efficient but one didn't get that warm and fuzzy feeling from them, The hotel itself was clean and roomy and comfortable and moderately priced. We lost wifi just before leaving and the hot tub was under repair but other than these two minor probs we would definitely stay here if ever in the area again
We were passing through and needed an inexpensive place to stay. This fit the bill. Nothing fancy but does have a continental breakfast. The AC worked and the place was pretty clean. We would stay here again.
The area from outside made my expectation low, but once checked in I was pleasantly surprised how clean and nice this inexpensive hotel was. Air conditioned, very large room with two queen beds with all amenities such as ironing board and hair dryer, desk and sofa. The staff were all happy group of people and friendly even though it was a memorial weekend and they would have been happier with friends and relatives.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of Turlock. Recently upgraded breakfast room is a plus. Rooms have some satisfactory touches, like better bedding. Our room was clean, and well appointed for the cost. Fine for a one-night stay. Ants in the bathroom was a negative.
Perfect place to stay if in the Merced area, since Merced has no Best Western. Hotel location is easy-off/easy-on Highway 99, and is close to many major stores in Turlock. The rooms are quiet, and both times I have stayed here I have been pleased overall with the experience.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was very good and well maintained. Comfortable rooms. Close to where we were meeting family. Close to freeway, but no issues with noise. A very pleasant stay overall.
staff are very nice very accommodating makes you feel at home with your family and you are always greeted with a smile especially by front desk worker derick he always has a smile on his face and is always welcoming and gives you that immediate comfort feeling and the breakfast staff and just having that is great
Definitely one of the cleaner, quieter Best Westerns I've stayed at. Room was like new. Tub was clean and worked fine. No issues with the room and the staff was friendly. Convenient right off the highway with shopping nearby. Definitely would stay at again.
This is an amazing motel a oasis in the desert of a long and weary trip.You can just tell from your first glance at the outside up keep of the trees and plants that this business really cares about the details of guest accommodation. The service was great the room was exceptional, even the towels were soft something you don't find except at higher end hotels. This Best Western gets 5 stars from me. I would highly recommend anyone traveling up California 99 stop off and plan to stay the night here. I have book marked this Best Western at one I will certainly plan my business trip down time at.
We stayed in room 116. There is about a 1 inch difference between the tile floors at bathroom entry with no transition. The tile is the same color so the difference is hard to see. I stubbed my toe going in to the bathroom bad enough to draw blood. My wife hurt her foot coming out because she stepped on the two different height floors. Also the clothes rack is in a very bad location for short people and my wife hit her head on that.
Although this was an older property it was well maintained and fairly clear. The staff was very friendly upon checkin. Entrance to your room is open to the public. Room equipped with TV, air con, plenty of plugs. Places to eat and shop about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Good for a business traveler.
Although this was an older property it was well maintained and clean. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The breakfast area was attended by a young woman who kept it well stocked and was there to help and offer suggestions. One of the more pleasant places I have stayed.
we really loved this place. they had a great breakfast. the staff were friendly and everything went well. the room did need some upgrades maybe but overall we didn't have any issues. there is also a restaurant next door so if you want to walk over there and have something to eat. we will come back next year for sure
Loved it clean room hot showers homely feel! Help full staff easy access an departure to the interstate an semi truck parking next to building with a restaurant next door an gas station across the street
Great staff, very friendly! Rooms are comfortable and spacious. A good amount of cable channels on room TV. Continental Breakfast in the morning is good, a lot better then other comparable lodging places out there. And best of all they have Tractor Trailer parking.
A nice Best Western in Turlock. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and breakfast is always great! In the area for a wedding and this was a perfect one night stay from Bay Area. It was easy access to the highway
Its decent. A fine place to sleep. Bathroom walls were kinda grody, but over all no real problems. The staff is nice and the room was comfortable. I would recommend this place to people traveling who just need sleep.
This property is dire need of an overhaul. The bed was terribly hard, the shower needed some help with the spray pattern of the head. There were issues with everything needing some sort of repair or paint, or refresh. Just about passable. The tv changed channels on its own. Free wi-fi helped. The breakfast was ok. Found a bug in the bed which was a bit off-putting.

thank you so much for your feedback. sorry you experienced all these issues. i have forwarded your comments to our housekeeping and maintanance department so they can fix the issues. thanks again for letting us know about your experience.
First time staying at this hotel. We were. Pleasantly surprised. Nice room, very comfortable bed. Roon had a fridge, sitting area and pkeanty of parking. Will stay here again next year. Great value for the price. Front desk was helpful in finding places to eat.
Stayed here Thanksgiving weekend. Friendly staff, convenient location. Microwave and refrigerator in room. Breakfast with waffles, pretty standard. Fairly clean but rooms are pretty small. Near the highway, so expect a little noise at night.
Location is good. Quiet night, no road noise at all. Dog friendly, nice pool and hot tub area and close to gas and food. We ate at the Dust Bowl Brewery, food and atmosphere were very good. I would stay here again
Stayed at this hotel with my daughters for a softball tournament. The room smelled of smoke, the power outlets did not work, the shower head sprayed everywhere. Staircase to 2nd floor smelled like a dump. Looked like there was days worth of trash piled up and was not clean.
Stayed here on our way back north. Skip Expedia. Call direct and save, expecially if you are a BW member. Check in was fast and easy. Room was clean and neat with quality soap and shampoo. I think they use rubber sheets or mattress as the beds squeak every time you move (don't get frisky with others in the room, they'll know) LOL. Breakfast was better than average, with sausage and eggs, biscuits,and waffles. Coffee was good. If I'm in the area again, I'll go stay here.
We came here for softball tournament. Hospitality and eagerness to provide good customer service was apparent. Would recommend for a good price. A little out of the way to get there. Sign is to show freeway drivers where hotel is, but you have to drive a bit to get there. Rooms are clean.
There were issues with the room but it might have actually been me being picky. Some corners were a bit dirty. Light through the door frame. Old tooth placker on the floor. Syringe cap on the chair. Over all I would say tighten up the cleaning and more could be charged. Breakfast is plentiful and hot.
Great service! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The people who work here are friendly and attentive. It's in a nice quiet and convenient location. It's right next to local shopping, gas stations, and food.
The room appeared quite nice at first view however when the HVAC kicked in it had a cycle that ran that was horrendously loud and kept us awake. The front desk told us that they had not had other complaints so we assume it was a problem with that specific room and will be repaired. Beds not as comfortable as some and the train runs right behind it but that's Turlock - you have trains. Would consider staying there again as it was a good value for the money. Breakfast was more than adequate. Staff was helpful and friendly
The Inn is conveniently located right off of 99. Derrek checked me in and was friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and clean. I like that there is a refrigerator and a microwave, along with a coffee pot. Very comfortable.
I stayed here 3-4 days on a temporary work assignment. The rooms are clean enough, sheets and towels smell heavily of bleach. I noticed a few maintenance issues: moldy shower grout, rust stains on shower head, loose safety lock. Highway noise is very noticeable until 11pm at night and it starts again around 6am. Thankfully, you don't hear noise coming from other guests. The continental breakfast is decent.
Comfortable room with microwave and refer. Comfy bed, nice hot breakfast items. Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy along with coffee, juice, milk, cereal, toast, the usual.. Lady even offered to make my waffle for me. Will stay again.
Microwave frig..nice beds ...roomy...comfortable. ..big screen tv..easy to find...safe...well lite ...fully furnished ..plenty of parking .right off of the freeway ...in Turlock down the street from Stanislaus state ..wonderful breakfast ..waffles waffles waffles it is a full breakfast not just muffins but they do have those two
Love all the amenities, including the pool, fridge, microwave, free internet and free parking. King size bed and flat screen tv. Plus quiet location and free hot breakfast at a reasonable rate! Also friendly and helpful staff to answer your questions.
Room was clean, well equipped, convenient and ready when I arrived. Reserved on Best Western website same day as stay. No problems checking in, no issues with room, staff highly efficient and pleasant. Great breakfast, No complaints at all!
The location is great. Somehow it's secluded and very close to any food/services you could want at the same time. The room was clean and big enough to be comfortable. The tub was HUGE! I will definitely be staying here again.
There are not many choices for lodging in the north Turlock area, and since I like to stay at Best Western, I selected to stay here because it is close to family. Was slightly disappointed in trying to locate the facility. There are no signs out front or on the building. The building is older and the room doors face an outdoor walkway. There is no elevator only stairs. The front staff on checking in and out had no expression at all. I expect more interaction from front staff. At first glance, the room looked nice. On closer "use" there were a few things... The bathroom sink isn't the standard built-in. It looked like one of my husbands work benches and was to high. The bathroom floor had hair from the previous traveler, also on the bath mat. The door jam on both sides in the bathroom at floor level was trashed. The "lounge" chair was leather-like, but definitely not for lounging. The seat was at an angle was wanted to propel you forward. The TV remote didn't work half the time. The bed as comfortable. Would I return and stay here? There are not many choices at the north end of town, so I most likely would stay else where even though it would be a longer drive to see family.
Good Best Western value. Ask for the non-freeway side. Internet is ok. But would stay here again. Check in was the easiest I've ever experienced in my business travels. Breakfast was good. Not a lot nearby, a cafe that we did not visit.
The staff here is friendly and paid attention to my request. Even though this motel is close to Hwy 99, restaurants and gas stations as well as shopping, my room was on the front side of the motel and fairly quiet. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a large screen TV, larger fridge, a microwave, and a nice size tub. I don't know if every room has a difference from the vanity floor tile and the bathroom floor tile but if you aren't paying attention, it is easy to trip on or stub a toe. The plug receptacles on the lamps in my room didn't work. I didn't realize that until I had my Ipad plugged in for a while but it hadn't charged. The pool is across from the lobby entrance. The breakfast area is large and inviting.
Positives for this hotel, quiet air-conditioner, actually had a ceiling fan-Great plus, the bed was comply, good am coffee at breakfast and quieter on opposite side from freeway. On the wish list for this location, clean out the cobwebs and spiders, keep out the pesky flies, reverse both the bathroom door and fridge door hinges-the bathroom had a weird setup.
Overall a clean place to stay spacious and modern rooms, convienent to highway 99. Mini refrigerator, microwave, and coffe maker all in room. Nice staff very helpfull.Close to restaurants and gas stations
clean, secure, affordable, great amenities, quiet location, pleasant staff. I love Orchard Inn I haven't even looked at another motel in the area since I started staying here 7 years ago. This is the place to swim, walk, enjoy the area and a great starting place for Yosemite visits and water sports on the many lakes and rivers.
This was a nice stop on our way back from Reno on our way south to home. Our room has AC, ceiling fan, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. They are decent rooms and the staff are friendly. There's a nice little restaurant near by too.
Best Western is right off the freeway if you ask for a room in front of hotel you will be shelter from freeway noise. Front Desk good customer service, room is clean and stacious, will be taking advantage of their free breakfast in the morning in large seating area. Pool area super clean.
Not being familiar with the area I chose this hotel. The entire facility is dated. My room was tucked behind the lobby. Breakfast was acceptable with hot foods. The staff at check in was rather surly and not very helpful.
Slept, ate, was on my way. I was so happy that breakfast had almond milk for me. That is why 5 stars in my book. Rooms were clean though older. It is still local, 2 min away from malls and restaurants.
We are truck drivers stuck in turlock having the truck repaired. Hotel was conveniently less than a mile away from peterbilt service center. Staff was friendly, decent hot breakfast, room was clean. Even accomodated a late check out for us. Would stay here again.
see title. was given keys to all ready occupied room. When returning to front desk to complain, was told to "chill out" by the desk clerk. Then received a room on the side of Heavy traffic and sleep was terrible.
Room is spacious and handicap was great shower was spacious enough room for myself who is disabled great Wi-Fi great task well really peaceful quiet by pool area and Jacuzzi as well really quiet and pecful
The room décor appears old and stale. The room smelled as though someone had smoked in the room at some time. The breakfast was fresh and tasty. The grounds around the hotel were not that tidy. In the morning there was a broken sprinkler shooting water on a near by tree.
This Hotel I would give a 10 on everything This Hotels staff was very helpful the breakfast was one of the best. The price isn't bad. This Hotel is clean and safe I would recommend this hotel. The bed were comfortable.
Worst hotel experience we have ever experienced. The staff that checked us in was rude. People smoking outside of our room. (I have Emphysema) TV remote didn't work. Room was not all that clean. Too close to freeway making it noisy. Won't stay here again
Service is fantastic. We had a great experience. The rooms were clean and it smelled clean I recommend this hotel when you are in Turlock Easy freeway access. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. I will return when I'm in Turlock
The waffles were hot and excellent . Prepared to order. Very helpful hostess, great attitude, very friendly staff. I would recommend staying here whenever your in the area. The rooms are very modern, recent remodel. The beds are very comfortable.
Always friendly staff, clean rooms, and wonderful breakfast. I came here with my boyfriend for a romantic getaway but we always stop here when we visit turlock. Wonderful service and wonderful rooms to stay in. Will definitely come back.
Very nice, clean, and organized hotel. Nice staff and the rooms are amazing. We came here late at night and they took us right in very fast service. The rooms were clean and also the shower which usually is dirty( and I would know since I sleep in hotel 24/7 do to work) all in all I recommend this hotel for stay!!
Hey, I love the hotel. Great price & friendly staff. Slept like a baby cause the beds are comfy. The rooms are very clean and I love the decorations and blankets are uniquely designed. The pool is a great place for the family because you have 3ft for the little ones and 8ft deep for the big dogs.
What a great hotel! I will be back, the pool was refreshing and clean it was also 8ft deep great for the family. The rooms were very clean and spacious, nice walk in showers with a heating lamp. Also you cannot forget the free continental breakfast.
Great service, very helpful with any questions, free complimentary breakfast, will be a returning customer. Lots of parking room, area is well kept and the landscape is beautiful. The premises is clean and the staff is prompt to ensure the cleanliness of the rooms. Upon entering the facility you can expect helpful clerks and a calming atmosphere accompanied by satisfying rates and free wifi.
No soap holder in the shower-bathtub, the WI FI username “guest” and password “sunset” were not in the room and the front desk did not answer their phone so I had to go and get it at the front desk. The knob is missing to control the temperature of the little refrigerator. There were many mosquitoes on the room. The guy never had me sign anything when I checked in. Rather a bare room but they did have nice towels.
A good deal for the cost, good breakfast, excellent internet speed. Rooms were quiet, a restaurant next door, many many places to eat a few miles down the road. Close to the freeway for easy access. I will stay here again.
The rooms were old but have been remodeled with granite counters in the bathroom area. They are very spacious with comfortable beds. The lobby area and breakfast area were spotless, welcoming and again spacious. My husband and I were surprised by the personal assistance given in the breakfast room. There was a lovely young lady preparing waffles in the waffle machine for the guests. We would definitely return to this gem of a hotel.
The room is updated, quite and clean. Based off the other reviewers I booked this hotel. I travel often for work and well usually choose a Best Western. Located close to the freeway. Front desk attendant was very nice and courteous. This is a good one!
Everything was great, staff is great, Need to fix the lights in the swimming pool and some outlets in the rooms did not work. Other than that, its worth the price we paid! Great time with family and did some school shopping.
After coming from the Fairfield Inn and Suite with Marriott, this place was a disappointment. Both methods of cooling the room—a ceiling fan and cooler near the window—are annoyingly loud. The rooms all face the outdoors, motel style, which gives the place a shady feel. One front desk worker was extremely cordial (working Friday evening) while the other was quite terse—borderline rude (Saturday evening).
Great hotel and conveniently located off the freeway with some restaurants near by. Front desk was very helpful. They also have truck parking next to it. Clean rooms, great breakfast and worth the stay. I will be back.

wow thanks for the 5 start review, really appreciate it. glad you had a good stay and everything was great. thanks again for taking time to write a review.
My son needed to get from SFO airport to Turlock and Edwin went out of his way to organise transport for my son, collecting him from SFO airport and returning him back a couple of days later. This was so beyond my expectations and what a lovely man. Thank you Edwin.

hi Elaine, thank you so much for the compliment . it was wonderful meeting your son. leaned a lot from him about Australia . he was telling me how the kangaroos box each other. lol . it was funny conversation. thanks again for give us review.
The hotel is a no frills one. It is modest but clean. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was acceptable (all the oranges were spoiled. We brought it to the attention of the hostess and she had to throw them all out). Don't expect to use the pool as there was a huge latino party every night there. Happy, lovely people but just so many of them there was no room at the pool, hot tub or even poolside. If all you want to do is sleep, shower and eat then this should fit the bill.
BWManagement05494, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Orchard Inn, responded to this review
hi anthony, thanks for letting us know about your experience, sorry about the oranges. we will look more careful in that department make sure this doesn't happen. also i am sorry you weren't able to use the pool. once in a blue moon we get a lot of sporting teams that love to gather in pull and swim. but i hope you stay again and this doesn't happen.
This was a great place for the price. The rooms were large and very clean. Rooms were comfortable with large TV. WI fi was great and the location was great. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall a great place. Breakfast was good as well. You won't be sorry with this place.
now they cannot accept all caps, I don't have any love for trip advisor. I want to say what I want to say and not be commanded to use more words or lower case letters. that's my feed back for TRIP ADVISOR as for Orchard Inn it is the best place to stay in central CA it is reasonable, clean, comfortable, people are friendly and it is close to everything you might ever need and far enough away to have a peace filled restful stay whether you are on business or pleasure, it is a pleasure to stay here. I stay here 144 days a year and that's recommendation enough. now, TRIP ADVISOR is that enough for you? I sure hope so because I won't post again to your site with all your restrictions
BWManagement05494, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Orchard Inn, responded to this review
hiiiiiii joy, glad to see you here on trip advisor. i wonder if trip advisor has a ling for their own review, go there and let them have a peace of your mind lol . thanks as usual for being so amazing in rating us high. you have become a family to us and you always put a mile on our faces. see you next week lol. -edwin
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable. Nice air conditioning. The staff was friendly and helpful- I saw them assist a customer to jump start the dead battery in her car. The breakfast included eggs and sausages! Also close to many shops and restaurants. When I visit Turlock again, I will book here.
The place is pretty close tho the highway so road noise is unavoidable. That being said the road noise isn't that bad. It's a basic hotel with basic services. The breakfast is what it is. Free. The waffles are made to order and there are some fruit options but don't expect anything close to real food. The biscuits and gravy looked edible but we didn't dare.The coffee was horrible, absolutely horrible. The pool looked frightening for a late night swim but we braved it and I believe we are disease free. It is a hotel right outside of Turlock if thats what you need.
This by far is the greatest stay in Turlock! Clean rooms, friendly staff and service, very nice breakfast, and a dream envoking bed! Aroom with a hot tub surpassed all my expectations! Thanks Best Western!

Comfortable motel off of the 99 freeway in Turlock, CA - Best Western Orchard Inn. We needed to stop for the night, I checked google maps for motels, the Best Western Orchard Inn was one of the choices, and we checked in to this charming, clean, quiet motel!!! The beds were so comfortable, the a/c was super cold (outside was 95 degree's at 5:30pm), staff were friendly & helpful for us - two older women with disabilities!! We were given an accessible room with a shower chair in the bathroom - so nice to sit down in the shower and be safe after a long day. This is a dog friendly motel!! The grounds were very nice, landscape was so nice and clean!!! The room was perfect for us & our golden retriever!!!! Thank You Orchard Inn for a great night sleep, breakfast, and excellent staff!!!!

hi katie, wow what a nice comments , i love seeing these reviews and come across someone who takes their time to review our hotel, it makes such a big difference in our operation when we know we are doing good, we always share these reviews with our staff at the front desk and housekeeping and outside staff to let them know they are doing a good job, of course we share the sad faces as well hehehe, but thanks again for taking the time out of your day to write a review. have a great day -edwin
Very nice. Staff was friendly and very helpful! They answered all my questions in detail. The cleaning crew was equally as nice. The room was very clean and comfortable. I have stayed at this hotel doing an out of town job and will use it in the future as well.

Pictures hun crooked ,plug in sockets loose in wall. Pl ug in lamp quit working in middle of the night. Dining area dirty. Landscaping need attention. Signage on property showing Best Western was non existant
Bed was terrible to sleep on. There many flies in the room. Room too pricey for condition of hotel. Front Desk clerk was rude when I explained the situation to her. Stayed at Comfort Suites in Turlock, CA. Hotel, room and service at Comfort Suites were much, much better, more comfortable, not to mention that price for room was less expensive that Orchard Inn. Pricing should be similar to Days Inn in Turlock, CA. At least Days Inn pricing is appropriate, not over priced like Orchard Inn. Recently stayed at BW Legacy Inn in Mesa, AZ. Experience and service there was 5 times better than Orchard Inn. Need to send undercover boss to inspect and investigate ongoing issues with the property at Orchard Inn.
I had planned to stay 6 nights but left early. I've stayed at many BW's and this was the worst. While the room was fairly clean, the beds, bedding, etc are very old and uncomfortable. The noise in the parking lot was very bothersome...seems folks like to rent rooms and hang out in the parking lot and party. They also let their small children run around after dark. Tried to complain but no one answered the phone in the hotel lobby. As a solo guest I did not feel secure staying here so I checked out. Forgot my sweater and when I called the next day, they said they hadn't seen it. I cannot honestly give this particular BW anything higher than one star.
This hotel should not be a 3 star, I would give it 2 1/2 at best. First the good stuff. The check in check out was quick and efficient. The hotel is next to a freeway but in the room you can not hear any noise. Now the negatives which are just me being picky. The room only had one tiny trash can, no can in the bathroom. When you have children the trash was filled in 15 minutes. We stayed in room 232 and one of the electrical plugs was broke. We had to take turns using the plugs we did have. The pool/hot tub was full of leaves(It is spring not fall). There was a beer can in the top of a tree. The beds are comfy except the top cover that felt like it was made from rubber. The breakfast was standard, the timer on the waffle maker was broken so you had to keep checking the waffle. I was a walking to my room when a bag of wet towels came flying off the second floor balcony and almost hit me. I presume it came from a maid working in an upstairs room. Would I stay here again? Maybe knowing it is a two star.
This hotel is gem in the middle of California. I thoroughly enjoy my stays every week. All the staff and all the facilities are magnificent, friendly, clean and well tended. I highly recommend this facility for your stay. They have a lovely dining area and also host private parties and meetings. Don't miss it!!
We stayed one night and would stay again. The hotel reception clerk was efficient, courteous and helpful. The room was clean and everything worked. Wi-fi, beds, and shower were outstanding, with a selection of pillows and sufficient towels. We had a great dinner across the parking lot at Grizzlys. We left before breakfast, so no thoughts there. Overall, a great Best Western and deserving of five stars as such. (I'm not comparing to a luxury suite because I did not pay for a luxury suite.)
My stay was very relaxing the room is clean, the place quiet and the staff is very accommodating and hospitable. Especially Maria at the front desk. I am area looking for real estate and the first night everything was booked out and I ended up at Motel6 which was a real roach motel I had to leave and ended up at this Best Western that was really the best, I had a great dinner at pub and grill there and I slept like a baby.
Miss Collen at the front desk was cheery and helpful took care of our ck in with respect and courtesy as well as our reservations taken by Maria over the phone . We're of to a peaceful nite. Thank-you
The hotel is obviously older, but the owners have maintained the grounds and rooms very well. Our room was clearly refurbished fairly recently. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only drawback was the road noise and some moderate noise from the adjoining room. It wasn't awful, but it was there. I'd stay here again, though.
I have stayed at the Orchard Inn at least once a month for at least 2 nights for 7 years and even when my territory expanded further south I still stay there because of the friendly people, the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms and the affordable rates, the lovely pool and spa are just a bonus.
I arrived late at night but had called to make sure that they knew I would be arriving late. I rang the bell and the guy who came to the door greeted me by saying, "What do you want?" The room reeked of tobacco. The fridge didn't work properly. There was no screen on the window. The pillows were like rocks. I stayed here three years ago and the place has gone down hill since then.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else on my travels to central California. this is the very best place in so many ways; centrally located, clean, comfortable, lovely upgrades to the rooms, caring staff and management. I am looking forward to swimming in their great pool this summer!
The staff was great and my room was nice. Everything would have been fine if it wasn't the guys in the room next to me. At first I thought two guys were fighting because there was loud talking and a lot of cussing. Then more guys joined in and I thought maybe they were watching a ballgame but none was on so maybe they were playing poker. I am guessing they were guys from one of the crews that stay here. It would be nice if they realized they aren't at home and they are annoying to other guests. If I am in the area, I will stay here again and hope I don't get a room by any crew member working in the area.
There is nothing special about this hotel. It is average in every way from the room set-up, comfort of beds and breakfast available. If this is by far the least expensive option it is not bad but I did not feel good about the value for money.
Great customer service and friendly at the desk, very helpful too. The breakfast was very good nice and hot. The room was big and clean upon my arrival. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very clean.
i really enjoyed the breakfast. lots of room to park. we parked our RV there. there was a RV parking next door which belong to the hotel. so you can use that. everyone was nice and helpful i will come back and stay with these people again.
The location is a little out of the way for central Turlock, The room was very clean and I liked that it offered a shower. Coffee in the morning was good and hot. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Good parking for trailers and trucks.
Room was a basic 2 queen non smoking room. Nice working refrigerator and micro. Bed was very comfortable. Just soft enough. Nice pillows. Great size bathtub. Longer and deeper than the vast majority of hotels. You could easily enjoy and nice soaking if so desired. Only complaint was the heater/ac unit had a noisy rattle from the grill rubbing against the frame when the fan motor was on. I could not get it to stop. Breakfast was good, they make your pancakes for you. Bottom line the next morning I felt rested and my back didn't hurt. And I did enjoy their restaurant recommendation next door the Grizzly bar n grill, I would return if ever a need arises.
This hotel is well maintained, rooms are always spotless, the people are welcoming and helpful. I choose to stay at Orchard Inn even when my destination is 67 miles further south. I found the best why stay anywhere else.
I had a smoking room, so there was an odor to the room. While understandable, some febreeze would be a good idea. The rooms were average in terms of cleanliness. There were some stains on the chair, and I didn't want to think about what it could be.. I will just say it was white, so I just steered clear of it. They offered a free breakfast but I had bought in store bought items. There was a fridge and microwave, which was a plus and they were clean as were the shower and toilet. I had one complaint and that was the noise. I was on the highway side, and you can hear them whizzing by. That noise was bearable. The noise that was annoying beyond belief was, out of town workers, who stayed there. They were obnoxiously loud, cracking jokes and just being plain inconsiderate and rude. They spoke no English, which is nonsense. I am a foreigner and it is easy to get across with gestures that you are LOUD! Dogs in the upstairs room were running around all night, playing with a ball or something. Management needs to address this and not have it where a guest should complain. Make some rounds and post rules in different languages. For a hotel over $100 a room, in Turlock and having the issues aforementioned. I would skip this hotel all together. The only reason I got a room here is because of the smoking as it would have been too cold for my female guest to step outside. I have been at much nicer hotels for less in major cities than the ones in Turlock. I honestly say stay away from hotels in general here, if possible.
i enjoy this place, they have good breakfast, nice staff, jacuzzi was heated and ready to go. it is close to the free way i guess if you get east side then probably better. but overall it was a nice place.
clean, well decorated and spacious rooms, complimentary full breakfast, early check in option. Staff pleasant and cooperative. No issues of any kind, enjoyable relaxing stay! Easy reservation, easy checkout procedures. Really good value in my opinion.
Night staff was very helpful and was able to get me in the room I needed. Thxs for the help I would have really hated hauling 4 tool boxes and luggage upstairs after a long days work. Rooms are clean and tidy so all in all it was a good stay once again thanks for the help
Rooms clean staff nice an very helpful with surrounding area. Will definitely stay here again when I'm back in Turlock ca. Restaurants in area that deliver an within driving distance an enjoyable fun town nice place good people
I have had better experience with my stays at previous bestwestern stays. I asked for roll away bed there wast not one in room there way more then one room avaliable upon check in then I was told when booking.
When I told my family (who live in Turlock) where I was planning to stay they said "oh that's so far, all the way at the end of town" which I guess it is but I'm from Los Angeles so a 5 minute drive is not far for me! Very nice staff, room was quiet, clean & comfortable and if your traveling with a dog as I was it was perfect. Unfortunately, I was in town for a funeral but the hotel was centrally enough located and they accommodated my need for a much later checkout happily. Also, a really great breakfast buffet was included in the price of the room and nice "perk" these days.
Nice room. Friendly staff. Felt safe. Second visit here and will book next time event in the area. Tried another hotel last time and disappointed . Came back to best western and will come again and tell friends about. Desk reservationists was very helpful and pleasant.
Would have liked a room that did not have any odors, but everything else was excellent.. The staff was very helpful and our room was in a convenient location. No noise. Breakfast was nice and plentiful. There was easy access on and off freeway and did not hear freeway noise.
Very Good hotel. Rooms are clean. Staff very friendly. Only bad thing is exterior rooms. When I come to this area this is where I stay. Has large truck lot and RV lot. Right off the freeway with restraunt next door.
This is our yearly visit. Last year we were dissapointed at the cleanliness of the rooms. This year way better! I still have email from owner from last year. I will let him know the rooms are way better.
Warm and comfortable. Easy in and out. Room ready, appointed well, friendly staff. We'll be back. We showed up after heavy rains prevailed but no problem, large covered arch for drive up to the office ease...
The Staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is about a five minute drive from CSU Stanislaus. Free wifi. Free breakfast buffet has a reasonable amount of options and staff is readily available to help.
Just passing through. Good shower, queen beds were harder than I would have liked. No extra blanket so I was cold. Free hot breakfast, great coffee. Nice ladies working desk and breakfast area. $89 with AAA discount so definitely not a BW Plus. Outside entrance to rooms.
We have stayed here several times while visiting our son at college. This property is well kept and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. it is well located, convenient to town and stores, and the 99 freeway. The only drawback is that the back of the motel is closest to the freeway and quite noisy, though once in the room we found it much quieter and not a problem at all.
I was amazed at how professional this hotel is. Fast check in, good advice on local restaurants from the desk staff, clean rooms and clean parking area. Tanisha manages the breakfast and has everything clean and fully stocked. Derek runs the evening shift at the front desk and is quick and professional. I am always happy to be here.
This is an older property but has been well maintained. At first glance, room appeared clean. However, later noticed dirt on walls above bed, at sink, in toilet room, and mildew in shower. Bed is not the most comfortable. For some reason, a number of flies were in the room (at least 5) which seemed odd for late November. The staff cleaned shower and replaced shower head, which had a lot of hard water deposits, when we brought it to their attention. Breakfast area was spacious, clean, and well kept. Attendant was very good. WIFI worked very well. If the room was cleaned better, this would be an excellent property for the reasonable price.
I am not sure anyone goes to Stockton to vacation...and I was there for a dog show. This was the host hotel so everyone stayed there. Even though it is a hotel "on the freeway" you have a choice of a room not facing the freeway (facing an open field) or the freeway. I try to pick hotels that at least have a good working Jacuzzi after a day of sitting watching dogs all day. This hotel had a pool outside but I did not see a Jacuzzi. They did have a good selection of breakfast, and even someone there offering to make waffles. I felt safe, the bed was good and the bathroom was clean. Enough said!
The Orchard Inn in Turlock is the best place to stay in central CA. I have been staying there for over 5 years and love everything about it. They are constantly upgrading for the comfort of the guests. That they have had the same staff through the years is a sure sign of how great a place this is. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
these people are so friendly, the price was decent , breakfast was great. tannish was awesome. she made us waffle in the morning. room was comfortable . i always stay here and i recommend it to everyone.
We stayed for one night during a four-day driving trip northward. The Turlock Best Western has easy access to the highway, and has all the usual comforts we have got used to with Best Western, as well as having somewhere to eat close by. Definitely a great over-night location. There is also a bonus - a really attractive pool.
We have been coming here at least once a year for the last five years. While the rooms and the front desk staff are average to above average, Tenisha, the breakfast room host is excellent. She has been on duty during most of our stays. Tenisha is cheerful, friendly, efficient and keeps the breakfast room tidy and full of fresh food. Be sure to swing by the breakfast room when you're there!
Visiting my sister in poor health a bright beacon is always breakfast attendant Tenisha! Give her a raise! Only choice in Turlock. Easy access from 99 and shopping mall down the block. Costco a short drive away. Great visit with extended family. Upon checkout the counter attendant tried to charge us for 2 nights when we reserved to use points for one night. He was not professional about it but we later resolved it with a phone call but no apology.
I travel to Turlock weekly for business and the Best Western Orchard Inn is my place. The people, the cleanliness, the wonderful Breakfast that Tanisha prepares, no other property performs at this level!
i recommend this place to everyone. its a nice place . worth the money. staff are helpful and friendly. the pool was the best part of our stay. we have stayed here before and enjoy coming here and visiting this hotel.
Great hotel to stay in while visiting California State University, Stanislaus or friends in the area ! Easy to get to hotel and the hotel has comfortable beds, small pool and hot tub. Easy parking, refrigerator and microwave !
I love this hotel. They take excellent care of the property, they keep everything in working order and up to date. The rooms are spacious and the bed is ultra comfy and the amenities are up to date. the wireless works better and better. the staff are friendly, caring and fun. The outdoor pool is large with a lovely patio with grill and outdoor dining and hot tub to enjoy
overall a nice place with a convenient restaurant/bar next door. A little freeway noise but it was pretty minimal and did not bother me. Turlock does smell like a dairy farm but that's where we are. Great staff - efficient and friendly!
Second time staying here. Very accommodating and nice. Derek was very friendly and helped us with our last minute reservation. The place is much nicer than the days inn across the city. Do not stay there.
I just needed a place where my boyfriend and I could go, sit by a pool, read, and relax. Orchard Inn was EXACTLY what I wanted! Turlock has a cute little Farmer's Market on Saturdays and we loaded up on provisions because the hotel had a grill in the pool area. The breakfast in the morning was pretty good too, considering it was free. Room was a little outdated but served us just fine, bar/restaurant next door was okay, and (for me) it's only an hour and fifteen minutes from home. Just Perfect!!!!
We have stayed here consistently for work and I cannot say how amazed I am with their service great job!! Rooms are always on point as well as breakfast really recommend you guys trying this hotel out.another plus is that it's close to the university so that's another good thing if your visiting the university.
The rooms were nice! Typical Best Western Style. Relaxing in the spa after a long day of baseball tournaments was priceless! There was even a nice couple who were taking advantage of the BBQ area! The gentleman at the front desk was really nice an professional. The complimentary Breakfast was good! Lots to choose from Waffles, cereal, eggs, sausage, muffins and other assorted pastries to choose from.
All staff I had contact with were friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a great variety of hot food and a friendly person to help and answer questions. The room was very clean and provided all the extras you look forward to. It was a quiet spot off the highway as well. There was also a great shopping experience just down the highway. I would recommend this location for any weary traveler.
