Sandra, JoAnne and Bibi were generally friendly and accommodating during our stay at the hotel. They always acknowledged us as we were entering and leaving the hotel. We had two golden retrievers and they were loved by all staff. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was great. What we liked best was the friendly staff and cleanliness of the... More

Flies everywhere including inside lobby, dead on lobby floor and in our room. Outdated room decor. Cloudy, slimy bottom and cold outdoor pool. Loud squealing train yard kind of neat - if you like trains. Very crammed room.

We were given directions to this hotel after the major hotels on the freeway were completely full. I am so glad. Really friendly staff. Nice room, clean and excellent breakfast. If we pass this way again this will be the first choice.

The staff was excellent, helpful, and friendly. The room was clean and nice. The reason I gave a middle of the road rating is because there is a railroad yard right behind the hotel. All night long, every few minutes, there was a very loud squeak sound coming from the railroad yard. you could hear the sound throughout the hotel.... More

This was our start on route 66. The motel was clean and friendly service. We loved Barstow and the view of the railway marshalling yards from the motel. Recommend going to the beautiful Harvey House railway station and visitor centre and seeing the architecture of Mary Colter.

The room was clean and comfortable, bed had the firmness I like. One of the biggest factors of getting a good night's sleep, in my experience, is how the a/c works. Happily, the fan stayed on all the time, even when the compressor turned off. This provided a more consistent background noise rather the wake-you-up on-off characteristics of some a/c... More

Older property, well maintained. Employees are friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast with the usual yogurt, muffin, bagel, cereal, fruit options. Ask for a quiet room . . . there is a rail line nearby and the trains squeal. Didn't cause us any trouble but you can still hear them. This is off the beaten track a bit. It isn't near... More
