Great night sleep on great beds! Excellent choices at breakfast- eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits & gravy, muffins, cereal, fresh fruit and more!! Staff was very friendly. Very cost friendly! Interesting group from Europe on motor bikes traveling Route 66.

Staff was helpful. Grounds were not up to par. Room and bathroom were in desperate need of renovation. Bedspread was warn and tired looking. Locks on glass sliding doors had been broken several times and pieces of old, partially removed locks were still in place. Bathroom had crumbling walls although very clean. All in all the place had a tired,... More

Good stop on the way to Vegas in a calm area. Is it more an hotel than a classical motel but the free wifi and the breakfast included make the difference. There is a lot of offers in Barstow but it seems that the California Inn is a good opportunity. You will find a good cantina very close the motel... More

Simple, but tastefully decorated, clean rooms , included plentiful breakfast ( not just a stale muffin, but choice of eggs, sausages, gravy, different breads, fruit and cereal, cream cheese ) for a low price.

Very clean hotel. Big room with tv working fine. Fridge and microwave inside. Also staff to prepare cofee and tea in the room. Breakfast include. A serious breakfast, not just a cup of cofee. Swiming pool in a nice internal area. Pool Open from 9am to 10pm. Nice place to stay in our trip to Grand Canyon. In the town... More

Clean, tidy but showing its age but they made up for it with the price ($63 US+ tax), quiet, helpful staff, nice pool area and good breakfast - at no extra charge. Wifi included and went well most of the time. Good place to book.

Well equiped with refrigerator and microwave, clean, courteous reception. Our room was fine except for the noise of a leaky toilet in thenext room that kicked on every minute throughout the night. That was the only complaint we had.

Having stayed at four different places prior, it's easy to say that this is by far the best motel that I've seen in Barstow at a reasonable price point. Everyone who works here is friendly and helpful, from front desk to housekeeping, the rooms are large and modern, and the bed and pillows are outstanding! Stayed on the second floor,... More
