Big room, very comfortable bed and pillows. Nice flat screen TV that got great reception. Nearby train but it did not keep us awake. We liked the fact that the room was close to gas stations and restaurants. Breakfast is limited choice but sufficient, staff are lovely and nothing seemed too much trouble, friendly and smiling at check in and... More

All night the trains were passing and the road were also just next to our rooms. Not very clean. Breakfast was fine. Rooms were big and the beds ok but the motel seem old and used. The pool wasn't nice. Easy place to stop by but the tow is not very charming especially not if its raining and it's dark.

We were very pleased with the motel. Price was reasonable and it was clean and comfortable. Much better price that the Best Western off I-15. We will be back to stay at this location. I guess I have to fill out more characters so I am writing nothing else.

Comfortable, clean and easy to get to. Biker friendly. Breakfast was good and though they were slow to restock food, it was good quality. Red Baron pizza is good for delivery if you just can't get back on the bike. Internet is the worst we have encountered on Route 66. They need to fix it.

Rooms were clean & bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly, helpful & professional. Hotel was reasonably priced & convenient to I-40.. Breakfast was good except eggs are premade, omelette shaped & barely warm.

I travel extensively for business, staying at this facility is not only convenient to I-40 and I-15, it is the quality of the people that make the difference. My company always considered other properties, but after 1 stay I was able to switch our corporate account here, and we've never looked back.

Perfect location for military person and busy person. Great location right off the highway. Quiet area and easy access to food and shopping. Lots of family stay here while passing thru on their road trip.

This Best Western is clean, close to good eating and easy off and on to the freeway. The breakfast stall is wonderful and friendly. The office is inviting and the front desk staff are friendly and took the time to give us good area information.

Stayed here on a cross-country trip to the coast of California. Nice motel in Barstow. Only complaints were that the parking lot exit to the main road is in a blind spot and that our room smelled strongly of "ben gay" or something to that effect.

So you walk in and they literally have ear plugs on the night stand for you. Turns out there is a train right across the street. And it's a very...active train. Could be updated. More of a motel than a hotel but the breakfast wasn't bad. Actually had bacon and omelettes.
