Tina at the front desk and Sandy for breakfast were just super, super, super. Can't say enough about them. The hotel is comfortable and extremely clean. The AC worked and the included breakfast was perfect.

Been a great experience! We will return - both with clients and staff for our tours and training. Accommodating, ease of transportation within and excellent services, pool and breakfast. Definitely recommend the Best Western for your trip stay whether 1 day or 10 like we do once per month and even more often

The receptionist was very pleasant upon pur checking-in and processed quickly. She also notified us of a bug infestation that was occuring in the region and pointed to a placard explaining the infestation. She was helpful in directing us to a wonderful restaurant within walking distance. Our room was quite adequate, clean, comfortable beds, and quiet. We didn't hear the... More

Our 20th hotel since being in America (8th Best Western), and was a really enjoyable stay, made particular by all the staff, esp front desk who helped re airline booking. Nice clean room, absolutely no issues. Breakfast is from 5:00 am allowing you an early start if visiting Death Valley. Breakfast there was: cereals, yogurt, Danish, bagels, muffins, juice, coffee,...

The hotel was suffering from a beetle infestation (natural to the area), but they were very diligent in clearing them from the property. They were small beetles that didn't bite and didn't cause harm. I appreciated the communication about the issue and the effort to clear them from the property. Clean rooms too.

We stayed here after spending the day travelling through Death Valley. The small pool was therefore a welcome relief for the kids after temperatures of up to 117 degrees. The lady on reception was welcoming and explained the bug problem. Whilst being a little alarmed initially we didn't really have much choice as the issue is the same over several... More

This is a older motel, but it is clean and the rooms are in good shape. There is a small fridge in each room. If you are stuck on using the government per Diem rate, this is a great place to stay. They have a good hot breakfast and they will let you in at about 5AM. This is earlier... More

Not a bad hotel. Clearly a remodeled, older building. Cleaned up nice. Room had all the goodies, but was very small. Feels like they crammed them full of stuff to meet the Best Western "Plus" requirements. Clean facility, friendly, helpful staff. I'd stay here again for business travel, but the rooms are too small for family travel.

Tina at the front desk was super! she explained the beetle problem patiently, with all great remedies. she probably is the reason most people stayed--and will stay again. Property is nice, clean, pleasant. Restaurant next door is really good--hamburgers and much more!
