“Very noisy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Rooms were fine, some remodeling already done, more to do. Good air/heat unit, constant fan. No sleep timer on tv! Noise is big problem, both from trains and very creaky floors. Never had anything like this before. Sounded as if all the wood beams were coming apart, you must have top floor room! Sleep and quite hard to come by when person above you walks till 10pm and gets up at 5pm!

This is the best hotel we have found in Barstow. My husband is working in the area, he stayed at some of the other hotels for weeks at a time. We read the reviews and decided to try the Sleep Inn. The room was just right for us, nice beds, very clean, quiet area. The staff was excellent especially BiBi, Leslie and JoAnn. The breakfast was very good, clean and we'll stocked, JoAnn was very nice she keeps everything in order and is very helpful. Fresh made cookies and coffee everyday is a plus. Wi-fi worked well. Cleaning staff friendly
The hotel can use another washer and dryer.

The employees were nice here and the rooms are OK for 2 people, but definitely not for a family of 5. The rooms were tiny and the bathroom was also small with only a shower, no bathtub. Also there was a stain on the chair in the room which was gross. We won this hotel on priceline and were unhappy we just didn't pay more for a better place.

Great little hotel in the desert which they call Barstow. I was out her eon business for a few days and this hotel has everything you could need. They have free wifi and hot breakfast in the morning. They are also going through some renovations and the hotel is beginning to look very modern. Cant wait to come back and see the finished product. The staff is the best part. Art the engineer was all over the place and always had a smile. The ladies at the front desk were great too. One of them was cleaning rooms and checking in people. You dont see that at most hotels.
Only downside, there are some trains in the back that make a lot of noise. So its not the hotel's fault, but I'm sure its hard for a light sleeper. Great job team!

Have stayed in this place several times over the years as Barstow is a good midway stop for me. The last time there, I'd said "never again" and then was just too tired to look for something new this trip. Bad choice. Carpet is torn and taped at most thresholds, almost every wall is banged up, lobby [and all other] furniture is tireder than I was. General disrepair is evident everywhere. And WHAT was going on behind the place all night?!

We've stayed here three times now and each time has been good. The rooms have always been clean, a great free breakfast that was filling. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. My only complaint is on one stay our sleep was disturbed by the squeal of railcar wheels running through the railroad classification yards braking system. There has never been anything happen to put us off staying there again.

Thank you for your comments!
We value reviews from all guests and it makes us all happy to know when someone enjoys their stay. I will be sure to let my staff know of the great job they are doing. Even with triple pane windows, the train depot behind us can make some noise. We will soon be undergoing some improvements to the property and that will be one of our main priorities.
We hope to see you again the next time your travels bring you this way. Thanks again!
