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.... More

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. Walks/floors are thin so I could hear some other folk but really, no problem. King size bed. Clean, Loved reading lights beside each side of the bed, complete with two plug... More

The room clean and large and I felt very secure there. The gentleman that runs it a real nice man. The question I always ask myself... More

Tried to stay here in middle of July.... Was hotter than the gates of hell.... pool was nice, however the air-con just couldn't cope with the heat the desert had to throw at this pokey-naff motel, excellent prices per room, but you'd probably prefer to sleep in a rattlesnake infested sleeping bag on top of hot coals. I have never... More

We were driving from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles and got a late start in the afternoon so needed a place to stop for rest around midnight. The clerk was friendly and quick. The room was right next to our car so we felt it was safe. The room was large, clean and had a microwave and fridge all... More

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... More
