“One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I was happily surprised by my very positive experience at the Country Inn in Barstow. The price was very reasonable and I wasn't expecting such great service and amenities.

Everyone I encountered was cheerful and helpful, from the man who took my reservations over the phone to the staff at the hotel. Check in was a breeze. My room was very clean and had a large screen tv, a small refrigerator, microwave, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, and a computer outlet above the desk. The bathroom was spotless and the water pressure and water temperature in the shower were perfect. This was also the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel, and the pillows appeared to be brand new.

This hotel also has a beautiful lobby, a computer room, a spa and a pool. There is a full buffet breakfast served in the morning, fresh baked cookies available all day, and snacks put out in the afternoon.

I was only there for one night so I didn't get a chance to use the spa or pool, but if I ever find myself back in Barstow, this is the only hotel I would choose.

I'm usually very critical in my reviews but I really don't have anything negative to say about this hotel. If you are traveling to Barstow don't look further. Stay here!

I have stayed at Country Inns twice and both times they have exceeded my expectations. Clean, updated with a homey, better than budget/mid priced feel. Cookies at check in and adequate hot breakfast. I have a close family member who works for one of the better competing large hotel groups and Country Inns is now in my top two choices when travelling. The Barstow property is top notch.

Although I would love to know what "better competing large hotel" your family member works for, I'll gladly accept being in your top 2. Hopefully when you stay with us again we can take the #1 spot.

Thank you for writing this great review!

I think we have a beautiful property also. And when the cookies are baking it smells good too! I'm glad you had a "wonderful time".

We stayed here for one night on our way back from the coast to Las Vegas and found it to be an excellent hotel. We were greeted in a very friendly way and the cookies at reception were very welcome after a long journey. Bedroom was good with all the facilities that you could ask for and the included breakfast was one of the best that we had whilst in the USA. We would recommend this hotel over many that we stayed at during our trip. It was convenient for the interstate but quiet. The pool looked clean and the hot tub was certainly hot! All in all, a good place to stay.

I hope you enjoyed your vacation in the U.S. I'm sure Barstow is small compared to some of the cities you visited, and yet we're the ones you would recommend. That puts a smile on my face. Whenever you come back, make sure you stay with us again.

I have stayed at this hotel four times so far this year for various lengths of stays. From the first time I stayed until this last visit the staff has been wonderful. The staff is always smiling and cheerful and ready to complete your every request. Tiffany always goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay and her and Roses smiles and attitude put you in a good mood even it your having a bad day. They have a great breakfast and the rooms are nice and always clean. This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in very some nice hotels, but the staff in this hotel puts all others to shame.

Thank you for speaking so highly of our staff. I think if you have the right people working for you, everything else will fall into place. Customer service is one of the big things we look for in employees. It seems we've nailed it! The staff and I look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Barstow.

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff was super friendly. The rooms were very clean, the bed was comfortable. I will be staying here again. Chilis restaurant is right next door I loved this as I didnt have to go find a restaurant after a long day of driving with my family.

I believe I have the best staff, which makes Country Inn & Suites Barstow the "best hotel ever". A clean room, comfy bed and smiling face can make all the difference when you've been traveling. And the Chili's right outside is the icing on the cake. If you're ever in the Barstow area again, make sure to come in and say hi!

This is the hotel I stay at whenever I'm down at Outlet Center in Barstow. The location is perfect, the staff is friendly, the complimentary breakfast is good and the prices are always the best compared to similar hotels there.

The last time I stayed, I had booked through Priceline for the first time, unfortunately I messed up and selected the wrong weekend. When I arrived the person working helped me out immensely, I got a nicer room for not much more than the Priceline rate, and the next morning the assistant manager helped me cancel my Priceline mistake without a penalty.

Whenever I stay there, the rooms are clean and smell clean, the beds are comfortable and clean, and complimentary internet is a plus. Can't say enough good things about this one, and I'm not a fan of Barstow so you know it's a great place.

Even though you aren't a fan of the area, I'm glad you like our hotel. Hopefully it'll help with your outlook on our small town.

Booking through a 3rd party website can be confusing sometimes, so I'm glad our staff was able to help you get in on the correct dates. And that you weren't charged a penalty is even better.

We appreciate the review and the great scores. Make sure you come back the next time you're in town.
