I booked this stay online because it was cheap, 2 hours away from pricey Vegas, a one night stay and the reviews all said it was clean. It was only $36.00 and when I got there around 6:30PM, I had my doubts because the outside walls needed paint and office looked like something out of the 1950's. They still use the hand swipe machine for the credit card and that made me more skeptical. When the old, friendly owner of the motel show me the room, I was quite surprise to see the room was very clean. They even had plenty of towels, soap and a box of Kleenex. There was a micro wave oven and a refrigerator to my surprise. The other reason for choosing this motel was because all the other reviews for Barstow hotels complained about the noisy train that ran all night. This motel is away from the railroad track and to be quite frank, I had one of my best night sleep at this charming, funky motel. I'll certainly be back if I pass through Barstow again.
