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

I have been in this hotels two times in a few days. I stopped there with friends for visiting the Mojave National Preserve and this worked perfectly to have a full day visiting this park as well as - on the following day - the Rainbow Basin Natural Area that was a really nice surprise. The hotel is an average... More

Arrived at 330pm to find the place empty. Had great laundry facilities although I returned to the laundry room to find a religious leaflet on top of my laundry basket. I sincerely hope this isn't the owners pushing their agenda on others. Didn't notice the train noise but from 10pm-2am there was a steady stream of arrivals that if you... More

The hotel was clean and conveniently located near the freeway. It was surprisingly quiet given it's location. The breakfast was adequate. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. The mattress was not as comfortable as it could have been and probably needs to be replaced.

We pulled into this Best Western during a post Christmas road trip. It was the first place we saw when getting off the freeway. We generally pick BWs because they are known commodities. Front desk staff was friendly, so it was a good start. Unfortunately, this place was not up to the general standard. It seems like a typical roadside... More

Perfect environment. Dogs are welcomed and it is assumed that the owner know the proper protocol. No warnings for proper behavior are given and respect is treated accordingly and appreciated. The rooms are large and parking is just outside your door as requested. Unlike other two story motels, this one was very quiet and upstairs footsteps were heard only once.... More

We arrived to LA on a super early flight, so we knew the drive (on different side of road) to vegas would be just too far. I had pre booked the room through booking.com (noted multiple times by the reception staff -not sure they were keen in this) as it was a better rate than direct. The motel was easy... More

The room was very clean, comfortable and well furnished. There are nice restaurants not far from here, and they even give us 10 % off. However, it is located right next to Highway I-40. You can hear the highway noise during the night. The walls are thin and we heard lots of noise coming from next room.

Bed odor, Towels positively awful. Should be thrown away. Excessive noise all night. Trains every 15 minutes. This hotel desperately needs a sound wall between the railroad tracks and the hotel. Anyone staying here should definitely pack ear plugs. If the hotel spent some money and installed double pane windows this would be a big improvement. And insulate the door.
