What a surprise! Not looking for quality in Barstow (a necessary overnight stay) en route to Yosemite. Room was clean and staff wonderful. Pool clean and full breakfast adequate. We would recommend this place to others.

It is a very good hotel, rooms are very large, bathroom either. It is near the highway (thus a little noisy outside),easy to find. The swimming pool is pleasant. We enjoyed staying there. The breakfast offers various food.

Its a motel but its very clean and the staff are tremendously helpful as if you were in an expensive hotel! We were given a list of local 'recommended' restaurants and the rooms were very clean. This town is also very interesting and there is a McDonalds in an old train carriage! never seen this anywhere before.

The staff at this Best Western were wonderful. Everything was clean and neat, the internet was the best I've had in a hotel. It was fast and efficient . Breakfast was of good quality, not an elaborate one but nicely laid out and fresh.

Wasn't really expecting much. But a very comfortable and clean place. Plus the room was cool when I walked in on a day that was 108 degrees. The breakfast bar was good with plenty of choices and well maintained. The only negative was the towels. Although clean, they were a bit dingy and need to be replaced. Overall a good... More

While this hotel is located near the highway and railroad tracks, it was still a pleasant stay and met all of our needs. For this trip we brought our dog so we appreciate decent accommodations that are pet friendly. This facility had a small Route 66 gift shop which I thought was a nice touch, and the town of Barstow... More

I travel frequently to Barstow Ca. I always look forward to my stay at the Desert Villa, the Staff is a fantastic group of people. the rooms are always immaculate and quiet. The location provides for easy access to either I40 (east or west) or I15 (north or south). don't miss a chance to stay here.
