Good selection for beakfast.
No complaints.

With the addition of the wonderful breakfast ~ waffles, eggs, sausage, cereals, yogurts, fruit, juice, coffee, oatmeal and raisins, peanut butter, boiled eggs, etc. the hotel adds up to great value (i even had 2 eggs & a mini muffin for my lunch.. and one BW even had a breakfast to go at checkout with water, etc. Very Very good. slept soundly and always great service.

A good Best Western Inn for a good value. The room was very nice, clean. The staff was quite friendly. They even provide ear plugs for people with sensitive ears. There was a train track behind the motel "BUT" the train noise was unnoticeable by this customer

This is an older but renovated hotel. Very clean, with all necessary ammenities for a stopover. There are plenty of electrical outlets and lights have enough wattage to actually SEE by (often a rarity in hotels) ! The staff is very friendly and helpful. A small initial difficulty with the door lock was handled quickly and efficiently and Yvette at the desk called my room 20 minutes after check-in to be sure everything met with my OK.
At checkout, Patty was very helpful with my next reservation, even after she had been dealing with a gentleman who only spoke French!! (Whom she handled with utmost patience and courtesy and I hope HE writes her a good review!)
The only downside: the room had a connecting door to the adjacent room and door wasn't soundproof so I could hear voices next door easily unless the fan was on. (Perhaps that's the reason they provide earplugs, rather than for traffic noise, which wasn't a bother)
The old-fashioned convenience of parking in front of your door is also handy for quickly arriving and departing when travelling.

We were very pleased with our stay. Every employee at this hotel was very nice, helpful and courteous. The breakfast was very good and a nice way to start our day. I don't understand why they are not rated the #1 choice in Barstow.

Stopped for one night here en route to Vegas. This place was certainly clean, well equipped and maintained. The receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. Don't spend more than one night though as there is nothing really in Barstow. The free breakfast was basic but agreeable. Really can't complain as it was complimentary.

The hotel is located withing walking distance from a WalMart and a donut shop and a gas station is about a block away. The hot breakfast was good, however if you do not like sausage but prefer bacon, be careful, the bacon and sausage share the same hot tray, and the bacon has a slight sasuage taste. The room was clean.
