I am super grateful for the honest folks at the Best Western Space Age Lodge in Gila Bend, Arizona. When I stopped there for the night last night, I was exhausted. I was really glad to be able to rest before continuing on to Tucson and Sierra Vista. The bed was comfortable, and the room clean with everything I needed... More

Hotel room was clean, all staff members at the hotel were friendly. Very easy to make changes to your reservation, if need be. Restaurant "morning" staff was ok, could be a bit more friendlier though. Food in the restaurant was great.

The eclectic theme of this otherwise standard Best Western motel has proven memorable. Clean, efficient service, and good location. The attached restaurant is cute as it is also space themed, but the food is barely mediocre... stick to diner basics when ordering.

The Space Age Lodge is an older but clean motel facing Route 8. Railroad tracks run behind the property. Our room was closer to the street, which I suspect made it less noisier than the track side. As the name suggests, the motel has a space theme--the lobby had space age murals, and our room had photos of the space... More

Between Casa Grande and Yuma you'll come across Gila Bend, just off the IH8 Retro Motel/Restaurant - originally built in the 60's Superb staff (Isaac in the restaurant in particular is one of the most honest, attentive and considerate employee you'll ever meet) Rooms are modern and plush, feeling more like a hotel than a motel. Extremely comfy bed, lots... More

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.
