I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights, it was nice and comfortable and affordable. I would recommend staying here if your driving through. Room is quite large with a big King sized bed. The view from our room great looking out into the town.

We took a day trip to Anaheim from Las Vegas and thought it would be a nice stop on the way back home. This was such a pleasant surprise. The room was a tad small but it was nicely decorated, bed was comfortable, amazing TV channel selection, small fridge and microwave. No view out the window but that was ok...

Nice hotel, convenient location. Excellent value for money. You get what you pay for and all of that is clean and in good shape. Nothing fancy but I would be back any time traveling through Barstow, CA.

This is a roadside inn that offers nice, average accommodation and is probably so popular as it is the road between Grand Canyon and LA, but it is certainly popular. The rooms were a good size, beds comfortable, showers good, and there was a balcony to catch breezes. Breakfast was overrated and gone by the time we god there at...

Excellent value for the price. Clean and quiet room with amenities - I needed a fridge/freezer and the room had one. Definitely not available at all motels! Pet friendly. Decent breakfast. I will stay there again when traveling to California.

Colorado Springs, Colorado
Reviewed 5 May 2016

D hall very stinky of old and new cigarettes everywhere, shower curtain, bedspreads, hallways, room itself,. Was pretty awful, I like the sliding glass door and little balcony, that was nice, so we were able to keep the door open to get some fresh air in the room. Breakfast was pretty good. Nice and efficient front desk.

We chose this hotel because Barstow lacks proper hotels. We stayed one night and since we often travel on the same route we thought for the future it would be an option. Immediately after we check out and left town my wife found out she forgot her pants, they were left in the room. I told her no problem we...

Very comfortable bed. Very clean room. Very nice staff. Unbelievable value. Easy to find location. Convenient to I15.

Once inside my room, open sliding glass door and unpack my car....
