Staff from check-in to breakfast room always smiling and asking if we needed anything. Room was clean and tidy. We stayed in Room 123 across from office. Didn't notice any loud noises. The rooms across parking lot are right next to freeway. Thank goodness for the large Billboard that had the exit number and address to the motel. This motel... More

This place is located on the eastern side of the city as you are leaving to go east on Hwy. 40; actually located at the end of E. Main Street. Great on and off highway. Near an AM/PM gas station and a Walmart. Away from the bustle of "downtown" Barstow. Pool. (They will give you extra pool towels) Breakfast is... More

Usually stay near the outlet stores but they were sold out, this was an excellent find for a very reasonable price. Plus the donut store around the corner is awesome. Barstow isn't the prettiest town but this hotel makes it worth the stop.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facility itself was in excellent condition. The room was large with all the necessary items you would need. The price was fair for the quality you received. Breakfast was basic but it was food and started the day. The only negative was the mobile home park connected to the parking lot. People... More

This hotel is convenient, clean and comfortable, It is located just off the interstate road, we got a room late in the evening at the hotel reception. The room was big enough for all of us (2 adults 2 kids). And they provided breakfast the next morning. It was well worth the cost.

Stopped at this location for a night. Parking is pretty small and there are mobile houses upfront the motel. No Wi-Fi. But very friendly stuff. Breakfast was lower than average and breakfast room area is not big at all. Room smelled like there was smoking before. Really strong smell which you can smell even after a night. I'm a big... More

Room was immaculate and very comfortable for a one night stay. Customer service was also outstanding. As a single female travelling solo this was especially appreciated. Clean room, comfortable bed. Some have commented on the noise of the train, however I was in room 107 and even being a light sleeper I was not bothered by any noise at all.... More
