“OK for a night as fairly central”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Stayed 2 nights at this motel. Family run and somewhat disorganised, but everyone well meaning and helpful where able. Motel is more budget than expected, but room was sufficient to cater for overnight needs. Basically furnished and went off cool at night, although did not mention that no response from room heater. Slept well though, albeit frustrating that no plugs in sink nor bath. Maintenance was obviously a problem, despite being quite small motel. Location wise it is located fairly centrally which gave easy access to freeway and there was a Dennys restaurant a few minutes walk away, being ideal for breakfast and dinner. Price wise this motel was cheap, but there are many other options close by to consider if higher standard sought. Would not recommend this motel, but similarly if on tight budget still worth considering.

I stayed only one night and it was ok, except the staff member who doesn't speak very well english. The place is not very pretty (office doesn't looks like an office, empty pool, etc.) but the room was clean and well equiped (microwave and fridge). For the price, you have a clean room and that is what I was looking for.

Great value for 29 bucks! The people are really nice and helpful. while the place isn't fancy it's clean and comfy. Tile floors, newish mattress. The outside needs a little up dating but who cares when you're spending your time indoors. The neighborhood is what you expect in Barstow i guess. There's nothing the hotel owner can do about that after all.

Room Tip: We rode our bicycles from Washington, D.C. And needed a place to stay. The people here are so nice...

While driving to Morro Bay I decided I had to stop for a rest in Barstow, CA. Did I get lucky. Not knowing anything about the town I was in the dark as to finding a hotel. I just picked one not knowing how it would be. I happen to pick Route 66 Barstow Hotel. Very nice clean place to lay my head. Best of all the service was great. Mr Khan was the best host I have ever had. He was the best. Thanks Mr Khan.

This is a very average room but, very clean. The beds were comfortable and Kahn is very nice. You can't beat the rates. If you are looking for a great deal but no frills, this is the place. I left my pillows and Kahn is holding them for me when I return next week.

We had lost our bank card and cell phone when we checked into the Route 66 Barstow Hotel on 921 E Main St in Barstow, CA. Despite this lack of obvious credit, the owner and staff treated us with great kindness and consideration, letting us borrow their phones, advancing even cash to us, until the time (a few days later) when our new bank card and cell phone was promised to arrive. This is a kind of traditional hospitality one only reads about in ancient books. An unbelievable expression of great humanity and generosity from another age! Mr. Khan and staff will take care of you as if you were part of their family.
