Great last minute reservation. Staff was friendly and prompt, rooms were clean, quiet, and appointed well. Also, close to a good choice of eateries, and one interesting gas station mini mart! All in all, a great place to lay your weary head to rest!

Nice Motel. Arrived early evening to a pleasant receptionist, nice room comfortable bed and quiet. The room had a fridge and micro, and the shower was hot. Had some issues with the WiFi, but logged into IHOP right next door. There was a hot breakfast in the morning and we were on our way

Not a bad place for the price when you need a quick break from the road. Great continental breakfast, but if that doesn't work for you there's always an IHOP next door. Wifi is reliable although if a lot of people are on it will slow down; naturally.

Pleasant stay on a hot night. Hallways were apparently not air-conditioned, but the room was fine. Generous offerings for the free breakfast, and we appreciated the 5:00am hour at which breakfast opens.

You can brag how much money you saved after staying here. For the price of it, you can't beat it. Very nice front dest, not great, but okay FREE breakfast, room is old, but safe and very clean. Starbucks nearby, that's always a plus. I will be back on my next California trip.

I specifically booked here for two reasons, the high reviews from Trip Advisor and the price. Big mistake! From the moment we arrived, it was a combination of errors! We drove up, and checked in (no problem), and were given the key to our room. I noticed a couple of things - first off, there were hundreds of bikers at... More

Petrol station is nearby and downtown Barstow is a short walk away

The housekeeping was poor. There was one washcloth and one single serve cup of coffee for the coffeemaker There was a used dirty towel hanging on back of bathroom door. Breakfast service was not up to dept of health standards. There was a jar of peanut butter that everyone just used as they wanted, as was the container of cream... More

Reasons for staying 1. Cheap and Location 2. Pretty decent hot breakfast Reasons for not staying 3. Friendly staff 1.

The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was good. The toilet in the room was making a flushing sound every 5 minutes so that was really anoying, the lady at the front desk didn't look very interested when i told it to here at check out. But it was a good hotel.
