We had read the reviews for the California Inn and booked to stop here on our way to Las Vegas. We booked 2 rooms and were pleasantly surprised by the good size of the rooms. 1 room was ready when we arrived at 1.00pm, so we could check in straight away. The beds were large and very comfortable which was...

Excellent hotel just off the highway in Barstow on our way to the Grand Canyon. Great value for money. A number of restaurants around. We were so pleased with it that we decided to stay there again on our way back to San Francisco.

My wife does not like anything near sketchy and she is always wary of lower priced hotels. We had 8 people in 2 rooms. In this care, she was pleasantly surprised. Room was great. Clean, comfy and it felt secure. Carpets were clean. Overall, it was a good sleeping experience. The food was decent in the morning. Staff was helpful...

A good place to stay as a stop over to Utah National Parks. Very reasonably priced which included a breakfast. Bed was super king sized. Barstow is in the middle of nowhere and did not appear to have much to do in the local area - but a good place to break a journey.

This is a two-story motel on Barstow's Main Street (rte 66) that's close to dollar stores, auto repair businesses, fast-food places, etc. My motel room smelled of smoke even thought it was a non-smoking room. The furnishings are outdated & dinged up. The rooms are small but everything is functional. The beddings looked clean but by no means were the...

Good value. Breakfast was not non dairy friendly or health food friendly. The owners could do so much better with breakfast. Advertise was full continental but there were few choices. I came down after a large group and there was nothing left.
