We often travel between our home in Nipomo, Ca, and Cottonwood, Az. We usually take hwys 58 and 40, which is about a 10 - 12 hour drive, and the Desert Villa provides a welcome oasis in the sea of sand between the two locales. The rooms are adequately large, well appointed, clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Excellent service from check-in to check-out. Fresh baked cookies and coffee on arrival. Nice hot breakfast in the a.m. Our room had just been completely renovated and it was just wonderful. Had a problem with barking dog next door as the owner had left him in the room alone. Reported it to the front desk and they advised they would... More

Very nice hotel loved the location easy on/ off the freeway. Breakfast was plenty and clean areas, not a lot of craziness or lack of food if you came at the lat minute, Im a late sleeper. My husband like the easy access of the internet and the lobbies coffee bar and snacks.

Zombies go through the trash at night for bottles, if your room is next to a trash can outside, you will hear them. Trains run at night, but not a bother for me. Thick... More

Motel is ok for area. Expect train noise. If you put a pillow on your head, you will sleep. One pair of earplugs are provided. At edge of desert town so don't expect much. Barstow is a 'passing through' town. It is way better than it was 20 years ago. Numerous restaurants. Drive a few blocks from McDonalds to get... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our way back to Southern California following our Route 66 Road Trip. We were lucky to find this comfortable place with great "People Service". We made our reservation from the road with Jordan who was very friendly and had great phone presence. When we checked in rather late, we met Ronald... More

Very nice rooms, clean, reasonably priced. We did not have hot water, but didn't wait for the maintenance crew to check it out. Reported it to the desk clerk and she said she would have it checked out

Staff was very friendly and I was upgraded to a room with a jacuzzi which was a nice touch after a day of driving. Room was very nice and large with a flat screen tv, microwave and refrigerator. Bed very comfortable.
