If you are looking for a place to lay your head then this place is for you. Rooms are simple and the Wifi actually works.

Likes: Good Wifi, hot water, and clean room.

Dislikes: You can smell smoke and continental breakfast was gone by the time we checked out.

Conveniently located & a good value. Staff may want to learn more about the city's attractions other than the outlet stores (i.e., historical sites like Harvey House, Route 66) to enhance tourist experience. Not everyone visits Barstow to shop (our group was from Holland & Texas).

The upaide is, everything worked okay. The staff is trying to do a good job. The place was clean and in order. However, there was a bit of a downside. Management seemed just a tad in disarray; the room was not ready for check-in at 5:30 pm, and it had been reserved quite a bit in advance. Still, they had it ready in short order with the A/C already on and the room at a decent temperature when we occupied.

The door was sticky (hard to open; the Mrs needed a little help sometimes). The water flow and temperature control in the bathroom was difficult to adjust. And weirdly, the A/C unit caused a weird and very loud resonance where your head would normally be in the bed ... but it was fine everywhere else in the room! The simple solution was to sleep with feet at the head of the bed.

So, four stars because (a) most rooms won't have some or all of the problems and (b) even so it was a large, well cleaned room at a very good price. Breakfast was adequate and well attended.

Room Tip: No restaurant and no fitness center that we saw. Walk over to the Italian restaurant anti-freeway on...

Stayed here as a stopover en route to Las Vegas. Motel is well away from main road so sleep was not disturbed. Large room, very clean. Great Pool and well tended grounds. Good complimentary breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again.

I had no choice but to stay here. I was visiting my mother and I am from east coast. I wasn't expecting such a clean room with toiletries. I was told they renovated the staying grounds which it was obvious.

This hotel is nice and not expensive. There are some fastfood restaurants nearby. Have free wifi and free coffee in the office. Staff is OK and the room is also good. Have a small swimming pool and free to use. It's my first time to live in the Super8 hotel and it give me pretty good impression.
