“Happily stay there again...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

This is pretty good budget accommodation. You definitely get what you pay for. For less than $50 it was worth it. The room was clean, the bed (and sheets) were clean and comfortable. Towels and bathroom were clean. An interesting array of items such as toothpaste, body lotion, craisins and drink flavourings were provided, however no shampoo or conditioner. The aircon was noisy, but efficient. The swimming pool was spotlessly clean and sparkling with a secure gate. Free wifi worked well. My only real negative - no hot water. However, being Barstow in the summertime, the cold water was warm, so I was still able to enjoy a warm shower....but I wouldn't like to be stuck with no hot water in winter. Upon check-out at 8.40am the following morning, I was going to drop the key back to reception and inform them of the hot water issue, however the door was locked. There's a great diner right next door called Jenny's - they do an awesome $2.99 breakfast and good coffee. All up, a good night's sleep AND breakfast for less than $60 :)

The room was clean and the bed was good but the shower didn't work properly and the Internet kept coming and going. The room door didn't shut properly and the handle looked like it had seen better days. But it was close to lots of restaurants and grocery stores.

The office door is open for you. The owner walks the property. For the price, it offers the best for your money on a one night stay.
