Inexpensive room at an affordable rate. I have stayed twice here now. Second room had a headboard that was nailed into the wall and fell off. Very unimportant. Clean and safe. Friendly staff. Only downside is the lack of toiletries that they offer.

Nice basic clean rooms. Near many fast food restaurants. Easy access to freeways. Nice large pool. Extremely good value for price. It had better amenity than pricier hotels. Excellent free breakfast in morning.

The room was clean and comfortable. There are not enough outlets to run everything though. To use the microwave, you had to unplug something else. It was nice to have a coffee maker, microwave and a small refrig with freezer in the room. The lights are on a timer, but they stay on for 30 minutes, so plenty of time... More

This is probably one of the cheaper motels but it's pretty good. They have a weekly rates. They have breakfast in lobby area. Pool area is nice it's a pretty decent size you will need this in the summers triple digits for temps. Close to highways and food places

Had I based my review just on the first night, considering the price, I'd have given it 5 stars. The single most important thing for me in a room is bed comfort. The single queen bed was fantastic. And the room overall was very clean as were the linens. The internet is pretty much useless and I had to use... More

The bathroom mirror was old and worn so there were spots that didn't have a reflection. There was open lotion in the bathrrim. Hotel states newly refurbished, I think they just got new refrigerator and TV'S... More

an injury during our vacation prompted an unexpected stay in Barstow. This unassuming hotel turned out to be a real gem. the front desk was open late and the staff accomodated us without a reservation even though they seemed quite busy. Room was spacious and nice, price reasonable and in the morning the nice pool was a plesant surprise. The... More

Consider this a hotel of last resort. The room was generally dirty, the bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom was gross, not well cleaned. There was a crummy breakfast offering. It is an all around shabby hotel. On the bright side, no fleas!

We had something reserved (and paid for) down the street, but there was no one there to check us in! We were hot, tired, and needed a clean, decent place to rest our heads on the way back to LA from a road trip. The place was clean, comfortable, my son enjoyed the pool, the free breakfast was decent--and we... More
