Was happy to find a Best Western in Barstow. You pay a little more than you would at a Motel 6, but it's definitely worth it if you take advantage of the complimentary breakfast. They do need to extend the hours for breakfast though, but other than that, we had a great stay!

If you are looking for a quiet motel this is not the place to stay. The walls are so thin when other rooms take their showers it sounds as if they are in your room. There are trains passing by at all hours seemingly just across the street as well (the motel does provide ear plugs in each room due... More

Great staff and rooms were decent. However paying over $100 to share the pool with gang members who live in the mobile home park which is accessed through the hotel. They bring their gaggle of kids too. The added bonus is that the hotel sits adjacent to the freeway and a train track.

We, like most other visitors to Barstow, were on our way elsewhere and were looking for an acceptable motel for an overnight stay. The Best Western Desert Villa Inn fit the bill almost perfectly. Its location is ideal, right at the junction of I-15, I-40. It is a fairly large establishment with quite a few rooms. It has a pool.... More

I'm concerned about the local kids who break in to the UNLIGHTED pool area at night. They plan to jump off the roof and could get seriously injured. Management needs to secure the pool. I told them about this and they didn't take it seriously.

We stopped in last-miute without a reservation and they were very accommodating. I like Best Western because they seem consistent and adhere to some minimum standards. This property was well run and nice to stay in.

Extremely quiet, very clean, large spacious room with settee and kitchenette facilities. Very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was very good with plenty of food and a good selection, . Breakfast area was very crowded but this could have been due to the time of day, we didn't go until about 9.00am. Location was handy for everything we needed, would certainly... More
