“This is a nice place and a real bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

My wife and I stayed here on 13 Aug 2011. We were in Barstow to attend an all day function just outside of town and we did not want to drive the 3 hours late at night that would be required to return home the same day.

The hotel is clean, quiet, bargain priced and the beds are comfortable. While the rooms are small, they are adequate, and we were not going to stay several days, The air conditioner in the room was rather loud and of course ran regularly, because it is summer in the desert. I finally turned the thermostat up to a higher (78 degrees), but still comfortable temperature and the air conditioner didn't cycle so often.

The included breakfast was nice. It was nothing fancy, waffles cooked on order (not toaster waffles), a selection of fresh fruit, juice, coffee, tea, etc.. Cereal, hard boiled eggs, toast and rolls were available also.

All things considered, a nice place for a nights rest at an affordable price. The manager and his wife are friendly and want to please their guests.

The room was wide and clean. The breakfast was very good and with great variety of choices. The owners were very nice and careful. It's a very good choice for an intermediate stop on the way to nevada or arizona, although the city of Barstow has little to offer.

We enjoyed a wonderfully clean and well appointed room with free wifi and a hot breakfast prepared by a warm and friendly host, Roger. the customer service and hospitality was fabulous, like the best of family. I will always stay here when traveling through Barstow. Great stay! Gregory C. Du Bois

If you are ever in Barstow, make sure you stay at Rodeway Inn, I beliieve it is one of the better Rodeway Inn's I have ever stayed at. The rooms were beautifully decorated, homey, and comfortable. The bed was so comfortable. The view of the moon and palm tree from our room was so relaxing. The owners were so friendly and helpful. I will give this place and A++++++ rating.

We stayed in the Rodeway Inn after reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. While I agree with other reviewers that it is a decent, clean, reliable motel for a reasonable price I spent a really bad night here because the air con in our room was so noisy. As the temperatures were high in July we couldn´t really go without it but it certainly was the loudest aircon I experienced on our trip to the US. So for those with light sleep this is a warning, for the rest: it is a good motel with very friendly staff. The only other complaint: when we were late for breakfast (5 minutes!!) we were sent away, we found that rather disappointing considering this is such a small place and staff (and food) was still around.

We had been traveling for a whole week visiting national parks in the Grand circle (Utah canyons) and wanted to break journey before driving back to San Jose, CA. We chose this inn after reading reviews here and since it was half way back, and were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable and well appointed for a one night stay, with coffee maker, microwave, micro-refrigerator and hair dryer. The bed was also very comfortable. After spending 7 nights in different hotels, where we could feel the springs in the mattress and waking up tired after a night's rest, this place felt almost like home. In the morning, we were greeted by the owner personally when we went for breakfast (free continental). He gave every guest individual attention, even to the extent of making them waffles, getting napkins, juice, etc. There was also more choice of food items than what we had seen before. For being a budget hotel, the owners made us feel very special. This is also a pet friendly hotel from what we saw even though we didn't have a pet of our own. That didnt bother us and in fact gave the whole experience a homely touch.

If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. And if ever I have to journey that way again, I will definitely try and stay here.
