Gila Bend is a small town (Pop. 2000). There is only one chain hotel in town, this one, and it's older. It's unfortunate that the pool was not open (for 3 days) owing to work during "cool" weather (in the 70s) in line with our time there. I would have given it 3 stars, but based on the poor customer...

My wife and I stayed here while driving from San Diego to Eastern Arizona--we arrived around 9 PM and found the check-in process to be complicated by unnecessary paper work. That is, we made a reservation online and provided all the information they needed to enable us to check in quickly as we were tired from driving. Nonetheless, they requested... More

Don't be fooled by fools stating train whistles blow prior to 06:00. Doesn't happen. Yes, 06:00 IS early, but windows closed and they are no louder than your wife's early morning snoring. Ample parking and clean rooms. Hotel staff is out of this world great.

Stopped at the BW Lodge on a recent AZ-CA trip. It was conveniently located between Tuscon and San Diego--and allowed for a relatively short 4.5 drive into SD the next morning. The options in Gila Bend are few--and while the Space Age Lodge is probably the best of all of them, one needs to be forewarned of two things--there is... More

The room was nice to sleep in. The pillows were thick and comfy. My family and I enjoyed the breakfast although their Huevos Ranchero was no good. I think this is a nice middle place to stay in before getting to California.

Nice looking hotel compared to others in Gila Bend, chose this one for its familarity (brand) and it's location. I'll try others on my return trip to compare. For a small town hotel, this one fits the bill nicely. Staff are accomodating and friendly. Sleep quality was just fine, hit the pillow and didn't wake up until the next morning... More

It's kitschy, it's cold, it's clean and the staff is very friendly. I've been here twice and each time found it a welcome respite on an overbearingly hot day. There aren't many lodging options in town, but this one seems the best and even has a restaurant with nice diner fare. My only tip is to be careful to close... More

We were headed into Mexico and stayed the night at the Best Western in Gila Bend. We pulled in at about 2 in the morning and we had a quick check in and a welcome room. It was an awesome stay. Breakfast was the best. Would stay there anytime!!

It met our ‘experience some American cheesiness’ expectations but not overly impressed really. The space age theme is neat but at the price of nearly a $100 a night for a location like this you would expect the facilities to work properly. Nicely appointed room but the shower is pitiful and internet access reminded me of the dial-up days. Some... More

Very satisfactory overnight stay. Lots of flies outside, and a fly swatter in the room, but didn't have to use it. Breakfast next door at the Space Age Cafe was very good. Passing trains were a bit of an annoyance, but other than that our stay was fine.
