Read other reviews, both excellent and terrible. The husband/wife team that ran the motel were very helpful. She said they had done it for 14/15 yrs. Yes the bkfst was limited, but very much in line with price paid. Much better than other comparable motels I've stayed. They obviously are making an effort to do the best they can with... More

Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. Our room opened to the pool area and a few chairs were provided so I could sit outside. The rooms simply open to the pool area. No fence around it. If I had young kids with me who could reach the lock on the sliding glass door I would have been concerned.... More

I am not a very picky traveler but this room was old and showing its age. It was clean enough, and the beds were ok, which are the most important things to me, but from a visual perspective it is old and tired. If they simply removed the bedspread cover and changed the top covering to the modern style of... More

Bed bugs, flies, and dust. That sums up my trip to this "exceptionally" rated hotel. I had to move rooms because of bed bugs. Flies were everywhere in the rooms. Dirty sheets and a management that wasnt doing anything to fix it.

Never got so much for my money! Really large room; table with two big comfy office-like chairs, microwave and refrigerator, flat-screen TV with good channel choices. From our room we could have taken six steps and been in the swimming pool; it was like having our own cabana. Pleasantly tiled shower. Microwave in room was a bit inconveniently placed over... More

This hotel does not impress you at first. There are signs in the parking lot warning you to lock your car and not to leave anything inside. There were two locks on the entry and exit doors to our room with warning signs about theft. It felt like being in a crime ridden area. Outside our room above the parking... More

I had been driving for 12 hours and needed to stop. Went on-line to Hotels.com and America's Best Value Inn came up at a great price. I was thinking it would be like a Holiday Inn. At first I was disappointed because the area was run down, hotel old, but one should NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER! The... More

I had stayed at a number of other America's Best Value Inns before but never at this one in Barstow, CA. I was hoping it would measure up to the others and I wasn't disappointed. The room was quite large and appeared to be recently painted. It had a flat-screen TV, mini-fridge, microwave, and a decently strong wi-fi signal. We... More
