Best Western Orchard Inn
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Ukiah
Reviewed 23 August 2011

At first glance, one would note that this hotel has been updated and is relatively well kept.

However, if you were to stay more than one night, you will quickly discover many items that are not functioning and are in ill repair.

The swimming pool is way too cold to enjoy even with the heat of Ukiah. The hot tub is so dirty you will choose to avoid it. The plant that surround the pool are brown and dead. The gym has alot of great equipment but does not work, and way too hot to enjoy your workout as the air conditioner is broken.

The management clearly is lack in keeping up the property and its features, too bad as it is one of the nicer hotels in Ukiah.

On long vacations we try to weave in some less expensive lodgings. The Orchard Inn was not pricey--but they provided a lot of comfort.

Pluses: Uniformly spacious rooms, fridge and microwave in each room, 24 hour coffee downstairs, recent renovations so things are freshly painted and the AC worked well on hot days, flat screen TV, nice array of free breakfast items, new beds and basically quiet (at least in our room) so we got good sleep.

Minus: It was in Ukiah, not Mendocino. But we drove to Mendocino yesterday and saw some inns that looked a bit run down (but were no doubt a lot more expensive), so we were happy to come back here for the second night.

Rooms are large but have very poor soundproofing we could hear the guests in the next room talking. The pool is not clean and neither is the jacuzzi. This is probably because the filter is turned off when guests are not around. The filter should run all the time!

We were on a pretty tight budget for our last vacation, spending 8 nights in different locations. This was our best stop.

Upon arrival, there is a massage chair in the lobby where you can receive 5 minutes of relief for a mere dollar. What a fabulous welcome after a long drive!

The inside and outside appearance of this hotel was clean and neat, and the greeting quite pleasant. Our room was spacious and clean, with no odd smells.

We truly enjoyed our stop at the Orchard Inn, and hope you find this a welcome stop on your next trip.

The room is nice and big, unfortunatley it was not very clean. Breakfast was okay but when we tried to get juice for the kids the machine didn't seem to be working properly. When a staff member finally appeared he took a look and said "your right it isn't working". No juice or other beverage was offered for the children (they must have had milk!). He also didn't put up a notice to inform other guests in the hotel. We also choose this hotel because it had a pool - the outdoor pool was closed due to rain earlier in the day! Never heard that one before.

Had planned on heading to Humbolt, but road was closed due to a mudslide, so had to change plans. Ended up in Ukiah since it was a decent size town on our way to Napa. Hotel was clean, decent room & rate. Breakfast ended 1 hr earlier than other Best Western's so missed it.

Everything was fine although signage and location was a bit strange. Kind of out of the way and drove right past it as it is off one of main streets parallel to freeway and no large pole sign.....like most have.
