Had an unfortunate circumstance whereas my father had a hospitalization in the high desert. Stayed at the Econolodge for 5 days this past week. The manager, Raju made it simple, and as we did not know from day to day what our circumstances were, he basically gave us the room indefinitely. This was more than accommodating as we were there...

I recently stayed on January the 6th with my husband and brother after breaking down in Bakers on our way back from Las Vegas to San Diego. Being stuck in the middle of no where was scary and with no car that was even worse. The owners were amazing, they were more than accommodating! They even gave us a ride... More

Why we chose this place I don't know - went brain dead for a moment. The room was musty, we struggled to get hot water in the morning and the continental breakfast was barely worth eating. Barstow itself is dying - absolutely nothing downtown. Next time we will pay closer attention to the tripadvisor reviews and ratings - there are... More

This facility was average all the way around! Accommodations were average, price was average, service was average and the location, to me, was somewhat off the freeways. What more can I say. I'd probably look for other options in the future.

This place looked really boring at first sight, but it soon grew on me since it turned out to be hosted by one of the friendliest motel owners I've ever met. I stayed here just one night, as me and my dad were passing through on our way from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. The room was nice overall, a... More

Reasonably priced, very friendly staff and the room was clean and well maintained. Good value for money. Pool was clean and the simple lobby breakfast was okay. We had a problem with the hotel WiFi which staff took care of instantly. Overall the management made a very friendly impression.

I guess we were more tired than I figured as I think we were hallucinating when we chose this motel. Not only was it on the edge of the seedier part of town but the motel must have had much much better days. A little more attention to maintenance would go a long way here. One thing I have no...

We were in this motel for 1 night and it was more than enough. We arrived at the reception and there was a dead insect on the floor.Ok the hotel was cheap but this doesn't justify the dust, rubbish under the bed and the rust under the sink..there was some object forgotten under the bed!

After a very long day of travel my teen daughter and I decided to call it a night at the Econolodge. Although it was after 11 pm, the front desk was friendly at check in, but the assigned room was a total disappointment. It was still 90 degrees outside and the room had been closed up and the a/c completely... More
