Great location, great beds, no noise. King bed was very comfortable. Our pet had lots of room to walk. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast was very tasty. It is a hot breakfast plus they have the best granola.

We expect Best Western to be a good experience, not glamorous but clean and up to date with a very good breakfast.

You know when they provide you with earplugs, that you're in for some noise. Such was the case. It wasn't dreadful, but it was there. The room I had was dark and OK, but not that inviting. The staff were nice enough, but not particularly polished.

Stayed there several times; not plush but comfortable & supplies all you need at a good price. Good breakfast but don't expect it to be up to the standard of a high quality British B&B.

I needed a place to crash for the night as I headed though California headed east towards Arizona, and decided on Barstow. As it was rather late when I stopped, the Best Western was one of the few places in town that still had occupancy. I've always loved Best Westerns, and this one lived up to the chain's quality standards.... More
