Barstow is one of those cross roads towns that does not have much to offer - its hot and there is not a lot going on. It is located however where we hit 9 hours driving and need to stop.
We have gone through Barstow many times and have tried a few of the hotels on this end of town - East Main St. and this is our favorite: quiet, clean (if a bit dated but, who cares!), large rooms with refrigerator and microwave. A basic breakfast is provided too - coffee, tea, breads, cereal, fruit etc. though we bring our own provisions.
Front desk is always cheerful and helpful.
They recently redid the pool pool out back and I took a lovely early evening swim as the sun was going down, nice and refreshing.
Best feature is the giant cactus!
