We planned a trip to Barstow to go geocaching on Route 66 and our requirements were a nice clean hotel, conveniently located and with free wi-fi.
This place fit the bill perfectly. Upon arriving, we asked the manager for a good place to eat and his suggestion was also exactly what we were looking for.
The original plan was to stay for one night and see if we wanted to go elsewhere for the rest of the trip but the friendly service, the affordable rooms (less than $50 per night) and nice clean rooms (we stayed in 114 and 115) convinced us to stay 2 extra nights.
My room (114) had a shower only which was quite all right with me and my friend's room had both a shower and bathtub. So if you want a bathtub, make sure you ask for a room with one.
There were the occasional trains going by at night but we were so tired at night after hiking all day that it didn't bother me at all. I also think that since Barstow is located at the junction of several busy railways, train traffic noise is probably unavoidable.
The breakfast was decent, with 2 choices of cereals, fresh fruits and some pastries every morning. We did skip it one day to get our fill of eggs and bacon but other than that it was quite all right. There's also a mini fridge and microwave oven in the room as well as a safe.
I would definitely stay again at this hotel. There was a promotion going on at the time we stayed there. If you booked 2 nights you get 20% off and if you booked 3 nights you ger 25% off. Very good value.
