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.

My family lived in Barstow just up the street from the hotel so I stayed/stay here as it is quiet, clean, great breakfast and mostly because of the Front Desk staff!

Stayed at this hotel driving from Santa Cruz, CA to Albuquerque, NM. Only one night, but it was a great location for an absolutely great value. Right off of I-40, super easy access. Clean, large room with refrigerator and microwave. Staff upon check-in were very friendly and informative about the area. Breakfast was great; however, it was VERY tight -... More

Very nice hotel. The only complaint I have is the towels and wash clothes were rather dingy. Bed was very comfy. Breakfast was a hot buffet of scrambled eggs, sausage, fruit, bagels, muffin. .This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, and I do believe it's been upgraded since the last trip.

Great place to stay traveling from AZ to CA easy access off and on to the freeway. Clean room, not bad breakfast. Rooms are clean, bed not bad. Plenty of places to eat and get gas. Good location, a bit noisy from the freeway and train that passes by but not a problem for me.

Very satisfy with the service, staff and my stay at this hotel. Went to party for the weekend, so it was very nice to come to a nice quiet room to rest after. Would recommend to friend and would stay here again.

Did not plan on stopping here, but our drive took longer than expected. We found the Best Western Desert Villa Inn online. It was easy to find off the interstate. The night clerk was very helpful and pleasant at 11:00 pm. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a good night's sleep and complimentary breakfast in the morning. I... More
