“Nice place to stay for a night”
Reviewed 16 April 2012 via mobile

Right off the freeway but the noise was not a bother. We had a nice clean comfortable room at a reasonable price. The breakfast was good, they have waffles, sausage and biscuits. Coffee was weak and the OJ watery. the staff was friendly and helpful. This is a good place to spend the night in Barstow.

Dear Traveler,

We're so glad you enjoyed your comfortable stay and the extensive breakfast that we offer. I apologize for the coffee and OJ situtation. We'll look into that and see if it was an off day or if it's time to switch products. We appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback. Please stay again.

Safe travels!

This hotel is RIGHT off the highway and I mean right off exit ramp. This hotel is also attached to a trailer park and the people who live there share the pool. The trailer park people must drive through hotel parking lot to get to trailer park.The room was very smelly. Room was dark and dingy. Really didn't want to sit on the couch...very old dirty looking. Not to mention the noise of the highway and train all night long. Not up at par with other Best Western Plus hotels at all! . On the way back through this town we stayed at the Hampton Inn Barstow, Ca and it was new clean, quiet , had a nice view and VERY WORTH the extra $$$$. Stay there instead!

Room Tip: go somewhere else

After I realized that the hotel is co-located with a trailer park, my expectations got pretty low and I was easy to impress. We stayed for one night on the way from San Franscisco. The location is pretty noisy, but we were too tired to notice the trains after we went to sleep. The room was clean and up-to-date. The staff was helpful, the breakfast was good. As we were packing the car to get on the road, a car from the trailer park stopped and the lady asked if we had any cash to spare for gas. Not sure why the hotel can't put up the fence to prevent trailer park traffic. There must be some type of fire marshal reason or something. As a snob, I would not have booked this hotel if I knew the trailer park was almost on the same property, but I really can't advise against staying here except if you are very sensitive to occasional train going by.

We also love the BW Plus line of hotels/motels. We felt this one fell short of that status. The rooms were okay with a microwave and fridge. Wifi was included and worked well. The motel was located just off the freeway, but you had to drive to restaurants and grocery stores. The continental breakfast was very good. It included waffles, sausages, and eggs. The AAA rate, with an additional 5% off, was $95. We question this as an off-season rate. Smokers were continually outside their rooms smoking with their doors open.

Dear Traveler,

We're sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. As you mentioned, we are a PLUS hotel, which is in reference to the many complimentary amenities that we offer (a substantial breakfast, wifi, all rooms with microwaves and refrigerators etc.)The rate you paid was standard for the area (lower than many, especially those that are closest to retail and restaurants) and due, in part, to the large number of travelers to the military base. Guests can usually find more discounts available by booking early and checking the hotel website for specials. From your comments it sounds like you were satisfied with the room quality and the breakfast, but the smokers disturbed you. We're so sorry this brought down your overall opinion of the hotel.

Safe travels!
