My room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The housekeeping lady on my floor was very nice and did a great job, her name is Estella. The people at the front desk were nice. The hot breakfast was good and helps save some money. I will stay here the next time I am in Barstow.

This hotel is located in a good area, with plenty of shops and eating places nearby. All rooms had WiFi, but was not the best. The 'Free Deluxe Continental Breakfast' that was advertised was of average quality. The breakfast room was located in the lobby, and anybody could have come in and eaten, as the doors were unlocked and no...

The California Inn was clean, spacious and fantastic value. Nice pool area and friendly staff at check-in. The breakfast is basic but a very nice touch given that most motels don't offer it. There are supermarkets etc close by and the motel has a guest laundry.

We stayed here last night on the way to California from Utah. It was clean the beds are comfortable nothing fancy and would definitely come here again. Breakfast is included and again it's nothing fancy but what would you expect for the price. I stayed here because they were good reviews and I'd like to add my own

I will not stay there again. I chose this with the thought it had a patio and sounded very comfortable. the beds and pillows were very hard, the AC would not stay on. When I stop in Barstow it is for a good night sleep. That DID NOT happen.

Inexpensive room at an affordable rate. I have stayed twice here now. Second room had a headboard that was nailed into the wall and fell off. Very unimportant. Clean and safe. Friendly staff. Only downside is the lack of toiletries that they offer.

Nice basic clean rooms. Near many fast food restaurants. Easy access to freeways. Nice large pool. Extremely good value for price. It had better amenity than pricier hotels. Excellent free breakfast in morning.

The room was clean and comfortable. There are not enough outlets to run everything though. To use the microwave, you had to unplug something else. It was nice to have a coffee maker, microwave and a small refrig with freezer in the room. The lights are on a timer, but they stay on for 30 minutes, so plenty of time...

This is probably one of the cheaper motels but it's pretty good. They have a weekly rates. They have breakfast in lobby area. Pool area is nice it's a pretty decent size you will need this in the summers triple digits for temps. Close to highways and food places

Had I based my review just on the first night, considering the price, I'd have given it 5 stars. The single most important thing for me in a room is bed comfort. The single queen bed was fantastic. And the room overall was very clean as were the linens. The internet is pretty much useless and I had to use...
