The location is right off the highway so some light sleepers may need the ear plugs that were conveniently left on the night stand. However, I slept well. The bed was comfortable and the room was large. It had a microwave oven, refrigerator, table, chairs, sofa, good shower, even a wet bar and closet. The staff was welcoming and helpful... More

The hotel had good internet and the AC was on when I entered the room. Nice that was on because of the heat. Staff was helpful and this was a good place to stay. Easy access to freeway and decent places to eat wthin walking, or a few minutes of driving.

Great little place and location. Amazing breakfast with great variety of fresh quality food. Rooms could use some updating but very clean otherwise. Now the staff is 5 star all the way around. Keep up the friendliness! Will definitely stay there again.

This property is freeway/railroad adjacent, but, believe it or not, one pair of earplugs is provided for guests less dog-tired than us. Fairly close to a variety of dining options and a gas station, with easy freeway access. The fridge has a freezer, but there's no in-room safe. The breakfast is better than the Placerville, CA BW, not quite as... More

When we rolled into the parking lot of the BW Desert Inn, the first thing I noticed was four or five construction type vehicles. Not a bad thing but an observation that the property caters to people who work outdoors. I was once one of those people. The next thing I noticed was a young male (late teens/early 20s) in... More

I wouldn't recommend this place unless you have a love for trains and people coming in all hours of the night and early morning. The morning air is odiferous. It wasn't a good experience...Unless you need a place to crash, keep going down the road. #nevergothere

I visited and reviewed the BW Desert Villa a year ago. I just returned 3 days ago and I am happy to report that the property is freshly renovated! The rooms now all feature clean, disinfected wrapped remote controls, brand new bathroom fixtures, new bedding, etc. Most importantly: better noise insulation! My room was A+ and quiet!

My husband is mildly disabled and has a hard time with stairs. Knowing this place doesn't have an elevator, we requested a ground floor room. It was not honored. No thanks to them our 33 day road trip is off to a lousy start. :'(

This hotel is absolutely perfect as long as you are literally on a stop over. The pictures on the web are a little fanciful but the hotel does its job well.
