We decided to stop in Barstow on our way to visit our son in Las Vegas. This looks like a brand-new motel, but the young man at the registration desk told us that in fact it's 13 years old and has recently undergone a facelift and remodel. We asked for a quiet location, since so many big rigs were also stopping for the night, and were given possibly the quietest room we've ever had, on the 3rd floor facing away from the front of the motel and the street. There are elevators here, so we didn't have to lug our suitcases up 3 flights of stairs. The pool area looked beautiful and inviting, although we didn't use it this time. There are lots of fast-food places nearby, and for breakfast there are a few restaurants, including Denny's, just across the overpass. The Pilot station right next to the motel not only had a Dairy Queen inside, but also had gas for 40¢ per gallon cheaper than the gas station just on the other side of the freeway.
The room itself was a good size, not huge but not crowded. It had a desk, combo fridge/microwave, an interesting headboard with built-in nightstands on both sides, a granite countertop on the vanity, and one of those wonderful bowed shower-curtain rods. The mattress was very comfortable and we got a great night's sleep. I didn't find the Kleenex (looking for a box or a built-in holder) until the next morning - it's a little travel packet, placed in a corner of the vanity. There were no little bottles of shampoo, etc. and no hair dryer, but at this price, who's complaining?! This is by far the nicest budget motel we've ever stayed in, and possibly also the cheapest - $55 total!
If we ever need to stop in Barstow again, this is definitely where we'll stay!
