No frills but all the basics. Clean room. No issue with noise. Heat worked perfectly. Prefect for visiting Calico Ghost Town. 3 miles away. Nice Diner next door. Pool. Wifi wasn't working :( Could have used more towels. Overall I would stay there again. Worked well for Calico 50k trail race. Staff was great with Late check out, no problems what so ever. I was running the Calico race and needed a late checkout. They allowed me to stay until 2:30pm so that I could get back from the race in plenty of time and relax and shower after the race. Great policy. Also allowed me to hold the room without a deposit. Frig and Microwave in room.

This motel is fairly literally in the middle of nowhere - we rolled in tired from a long day's trip and were very grateful to find this property. Awesome diner next door, and a great little ghost town called Calico nearby - highly recommend a visit! This place really saved us, thank you. And thanks once again to Tripadvisor for helping us find it.

Room Tip: We were close to the freeway, but thanks to the thick windows and blackout shades, we slept very com...

Unfortunately we had a room on the freeway side and it is very noisy BUT they provide you with a noise canceling radio. Not able to say if it works as we didn't realize until next morning that radio had this feature. For the price room was fine. Bed comfy. Didn't meet any friendly staff. When we checked in they ignored us for several minutes. Diner food is as good as any. We would stay here again. Visit the Callico Mine. Takes about an hour to see it all. Very nice view of the area from there. Be warned that employees there smoke in the doorway of their shop.

Room Tip: Request one away from traffic. You are only 30 or 40 feet from highway!

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights while we visited the Calico Ghost Town at Halloween. We loved this Inn! The room was very comfortable and we slept in past sunrise because the blackout curtains made the room so dark. The free breakfast next door was excellent and the people working there were also very friendly. Most of all I appreciated the General Manager Sandy who found my wedding ring which I lost under the bed and mailed it to me!

This was the best place to stay while visiting Calico Ghost Town - The room was very clean, quiet, the beds superb, the price was right.and above all the friendliest staff. We asked for a room facing the parking lot and on the ground floor, so it was very convenient for us. The room had a Coffee Maker, Fridge, Microwave, Cable TV, even a hair-dryer . Overall a great experience. Will stay there again.

Compared to other alternatives in the Barstow area, we found the Oak Tree Inn to be much better. Our room was clean and well appointed. We were on the non-highway side of the building, so traffic noise was not a problem. The diner next door is fun and the free breakfast was good. We'll stay here again when passing through this area.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the parking lot to avoid traffic noise.

It's a basic motel, granted. But, for what you get at a 'basic' rate, you get a fridge, coffee maker... etc. Also, it's dark (blank out curtains) and quiet (I was on the parking lot, but heard nothing from cars).

The pool area is nice, and the Penny's Diner is a place you must eat!
