While travelling Route 66, I came across a town called Barstow and a place called Best Motel.... or that is what the sign said ! The room was adequate for my needs but there was serious problems locking the door when I went out. The manager was called for this purpose and after a lot of fiddling, actually managed it....

Lots of motels along this strip. I chose this for price, quiet, and a first floor room. My room was fine for this kind of motel. Small traffic noise.

I have never...

I was in Barstow just under 2 years ago, and stayed here. I was a disappointing experience. Well, because the management, (who I believe were not here then) has sent me a postcard twice in the past year asking me to give the best motel another try. I arrived in Barstow 3 days ago, and could not believe this was...
