My boyfriend, our small dog, and I stayed at this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and respectful. The breakfast was really tasty. The room was clean and the shower was nice. Also the view was beautiful!

This is a typical older style motel versus hotel. All the rooms have driveway facing doors where you drive your vehicle up. It is also historically located near the start point of the Old Route 66. So, the hotel is dated and the room we stayed in still had the musty smell of years of painted over cigarette smoke. The...

This was our second visit. Getting into there driveway is a little interesting - it looks like you are getting on the freeway, but you have time to turn into the property. Staff was terrific!! Gave excellent restaurant recommendations!

Beautifully maintained gardens with many seating spots. Grills. Fenced in dog exercise area. Fish cleaning set up out back with an outdoor shower. Sort of secluded location. Retro decor. Older, well maintained motel. Pleasant place to relax.

We were passing through on our way to Tucson and stopped here. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the standard free offering. There are train tracks across the highway. The trains did not bother us but they do run constantly. We would use this hotel again.

Clean, quiet, comfortable. Just off Hwy 40 in Barstow, this is the place to stay. Everyone is friendly, courteous and eager to help. I stayed in the King Deluxe, everything was clean and neat, bed was extremely comfortable with 5 pillows, a sofa, 40"flat screen, all the amenities. Full delicious breakfast too.

The location is horrible, next to a loud train and I-40. Plus there is a near blind left turn towards all the restaurants which is a bit dangerous.

We had great service and free breakfast. The location and room were a little to be desired. I would recommend to get a hotel near the outlet mall so you can walk to restaurants. The pool was not great. And the location was near the railroad tracks with an rv park in the back.
