We found Apricot Inn by accident when we pulled off for fuel and were pleasantly surprised. Nice facility and rural surroundings. Good midway stop when driving the I5 freeway. There is only fast food near by but that was better than nothing.

We stayed here last minute while driving through the middle of California on our way back to AZ after visiting family for Thanksgiving. We normally try to make it to one of the bigger cities, but we were tired and ready to be done driving. This hotel was a nice little surprise. It had obviously been recently updated. The rooms...

We stopped here mid-way on our Thanksgiving drive. It was a nice hotel - looked like our room had recently been remodeled. The breakfast was a standard BW breakfast - I LOVE the waffles. :) I would stay here again.

This is a good stay while traveling I-5. It is in a good location for our travel plans and we have stayed here multiple times. All the hotels along this I-5 corridor are single night stays and this is a good one to get some sleep. not a lot of food options but doable

Very clean and well maintained property . The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast had eggs and sausage and not just cold items. Plenty of parking which can be a problem for us as we drive a large pick-up truck. As the hotel is just off the I 5 freeway and tucked behind some gas stations the signage...

I was there in Sept. The room was very clean and comfortable. The woman at the desk when I checked in was very nice and helpful. She looked up an address for me and printed out the directions. The woman that was there later was also very helpful. I am staying there again later this month.

During our road trip, this was the place that made the most sense, distance-wise. For that, it was okay. There is a small outdoor pool that we didn't use, no jacuzzi and no exercise room. Our unit had a small microwave that was useful, but not all the rooms have one, so ask about it if that's important to you....

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay. Just to let you know we have microwave & refrigerators in all the rooms now. As for the furniture being worn we just remodeled last year, we are going to start replacing mattresses this month in increments throughout this year and next. Have happy traveling!

We discovered this hotel and location years ago when we got lost on the wrong freeway. We have not stayed here for quite a few years, and were pleasantly surprised by the room upgrades. For being in the middle of nowhere, the rooms are decorated very nicely and luxurious, with modern décor. They included a microwave, fridge and free wi-fi....

Good folk's and nice place, very accommodating. Guest laundry and mini refrigerator a big plus and breakfast was ready at 6am. Location was excellent for where we were working, but dining out was limited. Parking was not an issue.

It was the name of the Best Western that drew us in. Apricot is my husband favorite fruit. We had stopped at one Best Western in another little town, not good, no vacancy, no cars in the lot. So I looked up the closest BW and saw this one "Best Western Apricot Inn" We called and they were friendly and...

“Avoid the rooms on the highway side; they're noisy. If you need a microwave, ask for a room that includes one. Not all of them do.”
  • Strangely (and dangerously) slick floor.
  • Visibly worn furniture.
