“Good stop over with pet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

This motel was just what we needed on our quick stop on our way thru Barstow. The pet room was a little crowded but served the purpose and was clean and dry. There was a terrific rainstorm that evening and the power went out for a short time but the staff did the best they could. Ear plugs were provided on the bedside table since we faced the highway but they were not needed.

Room Tip: Good for a quick trip thru town but not for a longer stay. Request a pet room a little away from the...

The room smelled like roach spray. The boxes outside have rat poison, please watch your children and pets . The hotel doesn't want you to know they have a problem. The rooms need to be updates, the sofa was stained.

Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Bring air freshness and your own sheets

While it's an older hotel, it has been well maintained. Beds are comfortable and the breakfast is good. The staff is friendly and helpful. Parking is adequate for larger vehicles. Overall a good place to stop.

The room was very clean, the breakfast was much better than most motels of this type. Hot coffee, cookies and fresh fruit at check in. Plenty of safe lighted parking that can be seen from every room for your truck and trailer or car. I will use this motel again cleanness is very important to me.

We stayed here overnight February 14 on the way to Las Vegas. We find Best Western to be consistent mid-level accommodations offering decent value and have stayed at both this particular property as well as the one in Mojave. The room in Barstow was very clean and well-presented (getting close to needing a "refresh" upgrade, though) and the microwave, refrigerator, and free internet are always appreciated by those of us that are road-tripping. Also, the breakfast buffet was as-advertised and the items were all fresh and tasty. No problems at all. The front desk was helpful and prompt and gave us great directions to Rainbow Basin. We read the warnings about noise from the road the the railroad tracks, but we were not bothered at all. There are earplugs provided in the room; we did not use them. Thank you for another good stay at Best Western.

Had a bit of trouble with a drunk coming in off of the street and threatening the front desk and I while I was checking in. The front desk calmly called 911 and asked the man to leave the lobby. Called me later in my room to make certain I was ok.

The fitness room was a plus. The equipment was in good shape and worked. The option of free weights with the bench was an added bonus. The breakfast area was small and it was difficult to negotiate around the food items as there were several guests there at the same time. There was only one working toaster so there was always a wait to have toast. Otherwise, the selection and quality of food was good.
