We've stayed at the Wills Fargo several times because we like exploring the Mojave desert and it's the only hotel close to it. In the past, it has been a fugly place to stay, like most of the other reviews indicate. The old owners told me the furniture and TVs in the rooms are old because people steal anything that...

I stayed here and it was not worth the $89.00 a night. The new management is ripping you off and taking advantage since its the only hotel in Baker. The Internet was terrible, the service horrible, Rooms dirty, and lots of noise. And the hot water not there, only luke warm at best, and it took 6 minutes of running...

No water pressure. No shade on the lamp. Stains on the comforter. Crumbling paint in the bathroom. Worst dump i have stayed in. Now called the Santa Fe. Ugh. Wish we had spent the money to stay in a Casino.

The *only* reason to stay here is if like me, you had business in Baker that was going to keep you overnight and didn't want to drive :40 minutes each way to a nicer and cheaper motel. The new owners have raised the already high (for the area) rates. The new tile looks nice, but exacerbates the noise in the...

The manager knew the room had no hot water but rented it to us anyway. This morning i couldn't shave or take a bath. The manager told me to run the water for 10 minutes. It didn't work, still No hot water. Then she told me to try another room. No hot water there. When we asked for a partial...

The only option for miles around, it's expensive for what you get, but it's better than sleeping in the car, and actually better than it has to be. The building has good bones and it's clean, quiet and safe, no weird smells. The couple running the front desk told us it had just been sold to the Alien Jerky guy...

This evening I stopped at the Wills Fargo Motel for a room. It appeared as if I was the only guest, and the hotel rooms had little outside lighting. A room, with only coffee available in the morning, was $80. The dog fee was $50. I thought that was far to much, both for what the $80 gave the guest,...

On our way home to San Diego from Utah. No places available in Las Vegas probably because of Labor Day weekend so stopped at Baker and a room was available. It was average, clean but needed maintenance such as replacement of worn fixtures.

We were aiming for Barstow, but traffic was horrible- 2.5 hrs to travel 40 miles- it was late and at this rate we wouldn't reach Barstow until 2 in the morning (that's what happens when you leave LV late on a sunday night- don't do it, just don't do it.) So, desparately hoping we would find a hotel in Baker...

“They used to have vertical blinds that don't give total privacy. Hopefully that has changed. The further from the road, the quieter it is.”
