Have stayed here several times when driving the Interstate 40. Easy on/off access to all highways. Variety of restaurants close by and Starbucks! Ask for upper rooms near back of hotel for minimum noise. Staff very friendly and helpful, plus nice breakfast with hot and cold options.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 November 2016

I needed a place to crash for the night as I headed though California headed east towards Arizona, and decided on Barstow. As it was rather late when I stopped, the Best Western was one of the few places in town that still had occupancy. I've always loved Best Westerns, and this one lived up to the chain's quality standards....

We are glad you found us during your late travels! As you mentioned, our location near the train can sometimes be cause for unprecedented noise and therefore, we accommodate the needs of our guests as best we can with earplugs. We appreciate your recognition of our attention to this detail. Thank you for trusting the Best Western brand to deliver...

Staff pleasant. Facility, in and out, very clean. Quiet. Reasonable prices. Only disappointment: restaurant recommendation they made that came with a 10% discount. I have to wonder if there was some revenue-sharing agreement between the two places because meal was very disappointing. I recommend you pass up the recommended, discounted meal at "Los Domingos" at the Quality Inn down the...

It's too hard to earn points, stayed there because I thought we could accumulate enough for at least one free stay, so I wasted nights there when I could have stayed somewhere nicer for the same price. I didn't realize Best Western aloud people not paying to stay to have full run of the swimming pool.

We have had some satisfactory stays at Best Western motels/hotels but this wasn't one of them. When we checked in we got the typical "we are a no smoking" facility. Then we went to our room and it reeked of smoke. We were given another room. Housekeeping had to know of the cigarette smoke and either didn't say anything to...

Not new but comfortable. If you looking to impress someone, this is not the place. If you want to have a decent place to sleep in Barstow this is a very good choice. Pet friendly rooms that are clean and don't smell. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Beds are nice and rooms are quiet enough. Stay here on my way...

Stayed here for a night and had a wonderful experience with the staff. I always ask the staff for a restaurant recommendation when we check in and the gentleman had a sheet listing all of the local (close to the motel) restaurants. Then he recommended three of them as favorites of his and why! This rarely happens, if at all,...
