Half way from our home in CA to our home in AZ, we spent the night in Barstow. This was a comfortable, clean, relaxing place which also accepted our four legged travelers. Will make this our stopping point from now on. Too add frosting to the cake, rates were more than acceptable.

When traveling to California for a quick weekend trip to Six Flags, we find it good to leave Friday after work and drive most of the way in. The Best Western in Barstow is a great place to stop. The price is great for a short stay and they are always ready for us when we roll in at 2:00...

Everything was nice. Comfortable bed, extra nice towels, good selection of TV channels, good internet service, great housekeeping, and freshly baked cookies (and fruit) at the front desk. My king room had a sofa and a coffee table so was really comfortable for working on my laptop. Breakfast for me had everything I would want, with eggs, sausage, fruit, waffles,...

We were overall disappointed, but in all fairness the room was clean and nicely furnished, and the staff at reception were very efficient and friendly. The negatives - too close to the freeway and the trains tracks. If the toilet were any lower, it might as well be a hole in the floor. The live cockroach in the bathroom was...

Livermore, California
Reviewed 5 September 2015

The room was clean and everything worked. A hot breakfast buffet is provided. The hotel is right next to the train tracks and there is constant train traffic. Fortunately their soundproofing is pretty good so the noise was bearable (and the hotel provides earplugs for those who find it unbearable). The noise level was far better than the Best Western...

What a surprise! Not looking for quality in Barstow (a necessary overnight stay) en route to Yosemite. Room was clean and staff wonderful. Pool clean and full breakfast adequate. We would recommend this place to others.

It is a very good hotel, rooms are very large, bathroom either. It is near the highway (thus a little noisy outside),easy to find. The swimming pool is pleasant. We enjoyed staying there. The breakfast offers various food.

Its a motel but its very clean and the staff are tremendously helpful as if you were in an expensive hotel! We were given a list of local 'recommended' restaurants and the rooms were very clean. This town is also very interesting and there is a McDonalds in an old train carriage! never seen this anywhere before.
