Convenient to the 40 freeway. Easy parking and reasonably good buffet breakfast. Check in was a little slow but check out was efficient. Rooms are big enough for an overnight and are clean. TV was better than a Hyatt we stay at!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 February 2017 via mobile

This was an oasis after travelling quite a distance with no hotels. I've not stayed at a Best Western in many years but was pleasantly surprised. It's an older property but clean and comfortable. The doors are on the outside of the building which was actually really convenient. The breakfast was delicious and well maintained by kindly staff members. The...

We arrived in Barstow, CA on our last day of vacation, after camping, with no reservation and with a dog. We really liked the hotel and the pet fee was reasonable (less than a night at the kennel at home). The staff was very helpful and even had written directions to the attractions we wanted to see in town.

Not in an area you'd expect but the Main Street is just around the corner. Clean room, nice service but curb appeal is a little less inviting. Close to I40, easy to get to. Swimming pool onsite. Staff offers restaurant recommendations and are nice and helpful.

I got charged almost $140 for a $70 room in a complex that was under construction. Work trucks taking up parking, hookers strolling the parking lot, it was an interesting stay. I suggest going to the next two exits and looking for a better place.
