Always look forward to staying overnite at the Best Western Desert Villa Inn, Barstow. Comfortable, convenient and reasonably priced. Rooms are quiet and A/C works very well. The room was cooled to 70 degrees when we walked in even though it was well over 100 degrees outside. Very comfortable in desert travel. Breakfast was quite good, but cozy.

Room is big & clean. Bed comfy. Air conditioner was amazing as it was triple digit temps that day. Pool was cool & refreshing. I brought my 2 dogs & they seemed to enjoy their stay as well! Breakfast room with complimentary breakfast was awesome!! It's more of a restaurant environment as one of the staff was very attentive. Clean... More

Clean and large room, very friendly staff, more than adequate breakfast and decent WiFi - made our stay much better than i expected. Convenient to I-15 and I-40 but not near the Tanger Outlet cluster so if you're looking to spend time there, choose a different option. But, if you're needing to be near Barstow, Marine Corps Base Yermo or... More

We found the service to be excellent as well as friendly and the room clean and inviting. There is a large pool and patio area. This Best Western is on old Route 66 in the heart of Barstow right off the freeway/interstate. When you stay here be sure to visit the old mining town/state park in Yermo, CA on Ghost... More

Husband and I stayed here for one night in the early part of June. It was a welcome respite after a long, hot day of travel. Both ladies working at the front desk were kind and cheerful. Our room on the first floor had everything we needed, plus the happy surprise of earplugs. Now, that's thoughtful. By nightfall the place... More

The towels looks like rugs and I'm afraid to used them. The towels need to be replace or wash them with bleach. They're not enough number of towels in the room only have a few. The bed sheets also need a good washing they're not white sheets.

My wife and me stopped here as part of our route 66 trip. It wasn't as good as we had hoped, but the location makes it a good place to stop. I felt the rooms were a little tired and less spacious than others on our trip. When I went to iron a pair of cream trousers I then found... More
