Nice motel, prefect location close to the interstate, for a stopover on the road to San Diego / Los Angeles. Everything worked as it should. The room was spacious, comfortable and quite secure. There were plenty of stores and food outlets nearby.

Good, clean friendly place to stay. Breakfast sufficient to start the day. Location moderate. Friendly staff. Small pool with BBQ. Small shops and restaurants on walking distance. Good for 1 or 2 nights.

The CA Inn is perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay- not the best of Barstow but fine at the price. Friendly local staff, reasonable breakfast, halls & public areas a little rough around the edges!

Pleasant and helpful receptionist. Hôtel very clean and quiet, with good beds. Bastow is a good place if you want to rest between LA, Las Vegas and death valley, or rd 66, with good restaurants . I don't hesitate to recommend it.

What do we look for an a hotel? A good night's sleep. So being woken at 4:40 in the morning by an automated phone call made it a fail. The genius behind the desk had no explanation, the best he could do was blame it on the naughty telephone. But some idiot had programmed it into the system. He eventually... More
