Very uncomfortable beds!!! I woke up with my back hurting!! Not much breakfast so we went across the road to Mcdonalds. It was ok, I guess for a night. Pool closed and shady people walking by. If you are traveling with children like we were i would pick somewhere else.

I stayed here for a night driving through. I booked on Hotwire and was not sure what to expect. Overall a good experience and price for a safe place to sleep. The room seems to be in a slow update process. Good water pressure, great internet connection. Clean. Relatively comfortable bed. A microwave and fridge are provided. Looks dated but...

Stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it, the manager was very helpful and welcoming to us and without hesitation. Came to realize that hot breakfast was included which was absolutely delicious. When I have the opportunity to come back, I absolutely will.

Outside of the hotel look nice and is quiet. Across the street there is a Denny's which is very conveniently located. Good rooms with an average rate in Barstow. I was disappointed that the ice machine was broken. Manager didn't seem too convinced that this was a huge issue. Please fix your ice machine and didn't noticea vending machine but...

Excellent choice by my wife when booking at this hotel. I felt very safe as the parking lot at night is illuminated throughout the entrance and entire hotel. The rooms are outdated but our overall experience was fantastic. WiFi was fast and reliable. Could not ask for anything better than a room for $60 with free WiFi and a microwave/refrigerator.

Third or fourth time this place has come up in an independent google search. Saw a new person on check in and still as friendly as others in previous years. Room clean and tidy with all we need shame others think they are buying the place to live in rather than a room to sleep the night in.

Like other reviewers, this is an ok place to stay, for a stopover. I found the guy who checked us in a bit surly, and not helpful. The fridge did work, and the A/C worked, but on noisy side. Furnishings and decor were worn and room not really clean, but adequate (use flip flops to walk around in!) Had to...

We were traveling from LA to Vegas and this was a good place for a short break. I booked the room through Hotels.com. When I arrived, we realized I accidentally booked for the following night. The staff was very accommodating and made a quick change and adding an additional $15 to the total. We were tired and just needed a...
