“Large clean room and friendly staff”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is one of the older motels that made Route 66 so famous. The owners are working on fixing it up and that is encouraging to see. The rooms are huge and and even though they show some wear they are every clean and comfortable. Some rooms are quieter than others on weekends, the smokers from the Pub on the west side can get loud. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast has batter to make waffles along with the regular continental breakfast items. I've stayed at other motels in Barstow and this is my new favorite.

We were traveling with 21 month old twins, when we arrived the cribs were already set up in the room. First place we've not had to wait for them. The check in staff were friendly, polite & very helpful.

The room was spotless, with a sliding door out to the clean pool area, equipped with a BBQ and plenty of pool furniture. The breakfast the next day was plenty, and upon check out the staff were great. It's close to the I15 and is easy to find. The room was quiet, very clean and very comfortable. With a fridge & microwave too, bonus!

Couldn't ask for more

This is a great hotel for the price ($45.00/night for one bed) but you can get the same quality or better for cheaper right down the road. That is the only negative with this hotel. Staff is friendly and will work with your needs. Located on Route 66!

Stayed Sunday night on my way to Henderson NV. Arrived about 10:45 and was warmly greeted. Room was as requested on the back side of the hotel, second floor, in a quiet area. While steps going to the second floor were a little dirty, the room was clean...really spotless. The bed was fine, the room was quiet, there was a clear sparkling pool outside my room. The shower and bathroom were also very clean, and the breakfast was decent....for $50 a night, it was everything I hoped for and I'd go back in a minute.

We had a long drive and we stopped there for the night. The room was big and well equipped. The beds were comfortable.
We had a good night sleep.
And the breakfast in the morning was good and fresh.
The staff was very helpful and it was really value for money. The price was good.
