“Nice room good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Clean spacious and with a fairly substantial range of items for the included breakfast. This hotel was a great stop for us on the road-we did not use all the facilities. It was a little tricky to get to from the freeway as its not directly on Lenwood Rd (you can see it!) stopped by Chillis right next door for dinner. Would stop here again.

Room Tip: Our room (328 I think) was a little noisy-in the bathroom you could hear the people next door talkin...

First, thank you for writing a review. I appreciate you took the time to let people know about us.

I think we have a pretty nice size breakfast selection as well, I love the fresh fruit. And having the Chili's right across the parking lot is very convenient.

Now that you know exactly where we're located, it won't be hard to find us on your next visit.

In the middle of nowhere you don't have much choice of where to stay. We were pleasantly surprised with our stay here. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff and felt very welcomed. They offer dinner to their guests. We had just missed it. There was only dessert left. They made sure each of my kids got their fill. Make the kids happy ... you make mom happy!
The room was clean and was good size. Beds were comfy. Internet worked great. No problems with the AC. Had coffee available 24/7. Breakfast was nice. In the breakfast area they had a cappucino machine like you see in the gas stations. Kids loved the hot chocolate. Nice, spacious eating area. They had omlets, bacon, potatoes, waffles, cereal, yogurt, granola, and fruit.
There is a Chili's on the other side of the parking lot, easy to walk to.
If we ever travel thru Barstow again we would definitely return.

Thank you for writing such a great review. I'm glad there was still dessert left from our Tuesday night dinners that your kids were able to get some. I hope you enjoyed some as well. I love the cappucino machine too! I get a cup of French Vanilla every morning. I look forward to seeing you again when you travel through the Barstow area.

We had to stop somewhere between San Francisco and a Death Valley camping adventure, and this place fit the bill. They were open late, and right off the freeway, as long as you figured out that coming from Bakersfield you had to head towards LA instead of Las Vegas when you got to Barstow... we didn't and it took us an additional 5 miles and 10 minutes to get there.

It was clean, sparse, with the typical loud air conditioning. Breakfast was normal pedestrian fare with no surprises.

The people at the desk were all pleasant and friendly.

This hotel is on the south side of Barstow, along I15 and far from the railroad. It is close to the freeway and in desert country there is going to be no way to get away from the noise, and that freeway is active all night. Still this is a beautiful property; spotless, great staff, good breakfast, and a five star value.

On the road from Vegas to the coast, this hotel is ideal for a stopover. The Tripadvisor reviews are spot on. It's clean, friendly and great value. Easy to find, it offered all we were looking for. It even has an indoor swimming pool. 'Chilis' restaurant next door was also ideal for a meal after a drive down the I15. Breakfast was perfect and the whole experience made great by the very friendly ladies on the reception (and the complimentary cookies!)

Room Tip: It's next to the highway so don't expect silence, however I didn't notice the road noise...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review yourself on TrpAdvisor about us. Our indoor swimming pool and the Chili's location are two of the things we get comments about the most. The Chili's is so convenient and you can swim year-round in the pool. And our staff works hard to ensure your stay is a comfortable and care-free one. Thank you again for your wonderful comments.

What a great hotel to stay at when you need a break from the drive to Vegas. Clean rooms, great staff and a really helpful GM. Everyone is really professional and the rooms are very clean. I travel for business quite a bit and I appreciate a good hotel that makes me feel at home.

I love when I hear seasoned travelers say our hotel and staff made them "feel at home". It lets me know that we are doing things right. I hope the next time you're on your way to Vegas, you stop and stay with us again.

My brother-in-law recommended this hotel on his first visit to our new home in AZ. It turns out it's just about half way between Prescott and the SF Bay area. It also accepts pets which is important to us. We travel frequently between AZ and CA to visit our children and always bring our little dog.
The facility is always clean. The breakfast has good variety. The staff has always been friendly and professional. One of the best additions to the staff is the young woman at the desk in the evening, Zenika. She has the most pleasant personality, efficient and helpful.This is our go to
stop on our somewhat frequent trips to and from the bay area.

Word of mouth is so important when picking somewhere to stay. I'm pleased to know we impressed someone enough that he recommended us and we were able to give you the same experience. Zenika is a wonderful addition to our family here, she gets compliments all the time. I hope the next time your visting the Bay area you stay at with us.
