Staff were very attentive; room was clean; all amenities worked as advertised. Breakfast was the normal BW fare: prepared eggs, prepared sausage, cereals, yogurt, waffles, and fruit. A very good stay after sitting in a truck for eleven hours. Good recommendations from staff for dinner, too.

This motel was very nice, clean and conviently located at the end of Main Street. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Like most motels in town, there was the occassional train passing through. The breakfast was better than the average motel breakfast and there was more than enough seating, not the normal 5 or 6 tables every one is... More

In an area of town that could have easily been dismissed, I was pleasantly surprised that the Best Western Hotel was not as its appearance would suggest. I found an upgraded hotel room with new furniture and clean carpet. My overall experience was very good.

The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is the noise level -- the hotel is very close to the railroad tracks and the trains are noisy. However, every other hotel in town is also off this main strip alongside the railroad, so there are likely not many quieter choices if you want convenience! The check-in staff were... More

Clean, good beds; coffee maker, micro and refrigerator; ear plugs to drown out freeway noise - lol The staff pushed it over the top, though. They were just so nice and helpful. They replaced a bad key right away; they put my sister and I next to each other, on the ground floor. Can't say enough good things about those... More

The rooms were old, worn, and could use a thorough cleaning, but the staff was wonderful, very helpful, and pleasant. I was 1/2 hour late for breakfast, but they let me in the breakfast room to grab whatever I needed. Oh, there is a set of train tracks next to this location, and it can be LOUD. All said, I'd...

Room was average or a little above. check-in staff was courteous there was some confusion regarding the pet fee understood it to be included in room rate quoted, discovered it was in addition to. Didn't realize the train tracks were as close or how often they ran. Freeway access was close and convenient.

We decided to drive to this business trip to Las Vegas. Barstow was the logical stop. We were surprised about the limited lodging options but discovered the Best Western Desert Villa Inn located close to freeway, the town center and in the direction of our destination. The service at the front desk was exceptional. The room was spotless and very... More

This is your average Best Western Motel and the least expensive we found in the area. It was, however also very noisy. There were a group of workers who were drinking heavily and barbecuing out of the back of their trucks in front of our room. There is also a train which runs in back of the motel. There is... More

We stayed here for one night. The room was nice and comfortable but it was also noisy. The hotel is right between Hwy 40 and train tracks. You know it's loud when they provide you with ear plugs. I'm a pretty sound sleeper so the noise wasn't a problem for me. They have a very nice buffet breakfast and the... More
