We recently drove Route 66 from Santa Monica to Chicago and our first night stop was Needles. We stayed at this lovely motel. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. We were extremely tired as we had started out in Anaheim early that morning drove to Santa Monica to start Route 66. Our room was on the ground... More

We decided to stay here for the night on our Route 66 travel. The front desk staff were very friendly. We were on the second floor and there were no elevators so it was a pain getting the luggage up the stairs. The room was clean. There are no shampoo bottles. The soap and shampoo are in dispensers.

Phillip Crouch takes very good care of his guests. The rooms are clean and neat and the pool is very clean. His staff is very gracious and helpful. Do not miss it when you spend time in Needles. We had a blast here and it is right next to 'Juicy's' restaurant and bar. We will stay here again in 2013.

Desk staff were very helpful except for one middle aged crab who snapped when we asked for pool towels. Very rude. The pool area is lovely with ferns and palm trees towerin over - espicially nice at night when it is beautifully lit up. good size pool and nice jacuzzi. the rooms are big and everything is fine in them....

Needles these days is not known for much. There are not really very many good hotel choices there. This hotel has a hot-tub and a swimming pool and also offers a good breakfast in the joint next door. Until the Harvey House gets renovated, this is the place to stay.

Not much choice in Needles as far as food and lodging goes. This is an adequate hotel for one night - nothing fancy. It has an adjoining Restaurant - Juicie's - which you get a discounted breakfast that is included in the room price. Popular with truck drivers.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Breakfast is served in the restaurant Juicys Famous River Cafe. We provide several options for breakfast. If our travelers opt for something other than the FREE options they can use there voucher for a 20% discount off their extensive menu. More

The staff at check-in and check-out were friendly and very efficient. The room was clean and quiet. Although Juicy's is convenient for dinner, we would prefer to have the standard BW continental breakfast in the BW facility for convenience and to save time in the morning.

This is not a new, modern motel with inside doors....the doors open to the parking lot (which made me hesitant to stay there with my grand-daughter for security reasons). The appointments are new and sparkling clean. Beds are comfortable, the coffee maker is not in the bathroom, there were electric plugs near the beds for charging phones....and breakfast was in...

It is a neat, clean, and tidy property. The front desk clerk was very nice and helpful. Our $89 for a King for the night included breakfast coupons for the restaurant next door and breakfast was really great! We were just passing through the area, but we would stay here again. I don't think there are tons of options in... More
