Very nice place, rooms are very clean and the owner it's a extremely nice person, he helped us a lot and suggest many interesting places to visit! I totally recommend this place when you are visiting the Route 66

The exterior is really charming in that old-fashion route-66 style, funky old cars in the lot and some quaint landscaping. The staff is friendly and tries to be helpful. Sadly, the interior was really dingy, from the threadbare towels to the smelly carpet, it's really hard to be comfortable. The curtains aren't nearly enough to darken the room but the...

Very friendly owner. Rooms are small and a very loud, but great choice of channels on the flat screen. The area is a bit run down, I wouldn't walk around there at night but the motel has plenty of security cameras.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a couple of nights. I met the owner who was super sweet, friendly and loves dogs! I booked this spot because it is pet friendly. My room had a king size round bed. For some reason I was excited about that. The room was clean and comfy. It had a microwave and...

I give this hotel a 4 today, not because of anything wrong at the hotel. The corporate offices have decided to take two things I expect to see out of the rooms. 1 hair dryers and 2 shampoo. These are small things but they definitely affect my choice of hotel. I will probably look at other options within the same...

Stayed one night in this small motel, and found it clean yet spartan in amenities. No in-room coffeemaker and a loud fan on the heater were the only downside. Hey, for about $50. + tax, this is a great bargain--and a little trip down memory lane! Friendly manager can recommend local restaurants, etc.

My girlfriend decided to stay in Barstow before heading to Vegas for New Years, and chose to stay at the Route 66 Motel. The Motel well kept, especially for a building upwards to 60+ years old. The rate was fair, and we felt comfortable. Definitely felt like the best hotel for the value in the area, and great for staging...

This is the Best place we stayed on our roadtrip. The rooms are at little worn out, but there are so much charm that it doesnt matter. Owners are very friendly and helpsom. If you have the time to talk, you can get a lot of the history about Route 66 and good tips for restaurants. The decor with the...

The room we stayed in was clean and had a large modern bathroom with a great shower.. The owner was very informative. The room was very reasonably priced and has restaurants within walking distance of the motel.

Truly a trip back to the 50's. Clean, comfortable and pleasant. Ours had a refrigerator and a microwave, large bathroom and very large king size bed that was firm, just right for my back. Very quiet place to stay. Lots of neat neon signs, old cars mainly rusted out. One 1940's Cadillac as well as a 40's LaSalle, pretty rare...
