If you choose to overnight here bring an alarm clock. Maybe some extra toiletries, too. This is a route 66 motel off of the 40, 44 miles from Barstow. It's part of the Chevron property along with the storied café, an original part of which still exists from when it was moved here from down the road a piece. Offers... More

Drove from Grand Canyon at 6pm and thought I'd drive for as long as I could stay awake for. At 1am I was struggling to stay awake so this motel was our only option. You check in at the petrol station across the road. The person working there told us all rooms were smoking rooms. We didn't have much choice... More

We drove through the desert for hours and really had to sleep. This motel was the only option. It gave us the real old-school route 66 feeling. Everyone should sleep in a motel like this just once in his life. Nice staff, clean bed, clean bathroom: we had a nice stay for only 50 dollars for 1 night! No Wifi,... More

The hotel is located across the street from the Chevron station. Checkin was easy and cordial enough. But the room was horrible. Dark. Outdated. Smelled of cigarette smoke. Stains in bath sink and toilet. Stains on carpet and really bad stuff on two chairs in the room. We rented two room for two couples. Our air and tv worked. Theirs... More

We were driving Route 66 and were behind schedule. I checked the guidebook and this was located at the next exit (about 25 miles away). I called the Chevron station, they said they had a room and when she said there was no phone or Wifi - I laughed and said it was ok. I wasn't going there for wifi... More

we were driving all day and on the way from arizona it was the first motel after 2 hours. If we hadn't been that tired, we would have better driven further. And I suggest you do the same. No fridge, no breakfast, a really old TV, not really clean, not really safe, lies between rail- and highway

We stayed here, intentionally, on the first night of our Route 66 trip from California to Chicago. No wifi, but the room was clean, if old. We got free coffee and soft drinks from the gas station when we checked in and again when we checked out. Also got 10% off at the Ludlow Cafe next door by showing our... More

This was great value for the money. We were informed that there was no WiFi, so accepted that. Free coffee at the Chevron service station for guests was good. Clean bathroom, comfortable bed. Great for a stopover. Glad to have somewhere to stay.
