“A truckers motel, and none the worse for that”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Had an issue at check-in, as we had a Travelocity voucher, and they'd not notified the hotel (Americas Best Value Inns are individually franchised, so the manger was particularly concerned). However, he didn't make a big issue out of it, just emailed Travelocity. He was apologetic, but explained if he hadn't heard back from them by the morning he'd have to charge us. Glad I always take all relevant emails/web printouts with me as evidence of bookings, as the paperwork helped. We didn't hear from him, so assume it was all sorted.

Room more than adequate for our overnight needs; drinks available in the breakfast room 24/7. The breakfast was fine, filled a hole and got you on your way, and I love peanut butter and jelly. Try the pastries wrapped in cellophane in the fridge. Look unappetising, obviously preserved, but they're surprisingly tasty.

The manager provided a list of restaurants, mostly a drive away, so all in it was a good motel experience. There is even a pool, but not tested being mid-November.

One last tip; if approaching from Arizona (possibly Oatman & Route 66) you'll be on Route 95. Fill up at the Arco station a mile or two from the border (at junction with Co Hwy 351), and the 2nd last in Arizona. The last one, just before the border, is $0.80/gal more, and in California it's $1.50/gal more.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Needles. I stayed several weeks at the hotel for seasonal work around Needles and never had any issues. The place was clean. The room was llarge, bathroom was big, shower was nice, had a refrigerator, microwave, and a tv with direcTV. Laundry was available at the site. The staff was fantastic and very personable. They were always concerned with how well I was enjoying the place, and were always willing to make the extra effort to make it better. The rate was very reasonable.

We were a bit apprehensive when we stopped at this motel, but we had missed the larger choice of community and motel selections in Barstow (heading west to California). The motel offered a coupon for a $35.00 stay and usually this low a rate indicates some concern.

The manager was at the front desk and he welcomed us. We asked to see a room. They looked just fine. Not a 5 star, or even a 4 star hotel, but what can one expect for $35.00? It was clean, neat and the rooms were very sufficient for an overnight stay.

Breakfast was not available but this proved to be to our value, as we found the Wagon Wheel Restaurant. That was also a great choice, but that's another review.

Basic and cheap, ok for a one night stay.
Noise from the freeway nearby, use earplugs.
Not in town, nowhere to walk around.
Signs of past troubles on the doors.
Bathroom is basic.
Friendly operator.

I have been staying here for 8 months while working a large construction project. It has been a nice place to stay. During the summer months the pool was a welcome relief. The staff keeps it clean and provides rafts for lounging. There is a nice patio around the pool that offers the choice of a gas BBQ or Weber Kettle. There's only so many nights you can eat in a restaurant and being able to go to the store up the street and eat like you would at home is very nice. The rooms have a mini fridge and microwave as well as a full size coffee pot if you want it (just ask). My room has 2 queen beds, a new flat screen tv. with Directv, plenty of outlets, and WiFi. The kitchen style table is perfect for my printer and laptop and I don't feel cramped at all. The bathroom has a full size bath tub/shower and not one of the narrow ones I have found in other hotels. My room is always clean and have plenty of towels. There is a coin opp laundry on site, large freezer, and brand new ice machine. I can't say enough about the staff. They are so nice and have really taken great care of me and my crew. If we have ever needed something they have made it happen for us. Their kindness more than makes up for any of the frills you may find in a more expensive motel in town, but for me I wouldn't stay any where else.

Normally I don't expect much from the low end of the budget motel chains but this one surprised me. At $40 a night I got a good sized room that was clean and well kept, two queen beds (a little hard for my liking but otherwise comfortable), a small refrigerator and microwave and a TV with lots of DirecTV channels. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. No frills but well worth the money.

Room Tip: Only a block or so off Interstate 40 on the east side of town.

The hotel staff are exceptionally nice and very accommodating. The manager, David, makes you feel at home and is very knowledgeable. Neighbors were peaceful and friendly.

This is the place to stay for a great low price while still fulfilling the basic requirements for a good hotel room. The room had a comfortable, clean bed, clean bathroom, and appliances that worked. Internet is free and stable. The pool is big and clean. There are gas stations close by, and there is a picnic area near the Colorado River about 5 minutes drive down the road.

Overall, a very positive experience.
