Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel was clean and quiet. No breakfast at the hotel, breakfast is next door at the restaurant, we decided to visit a different restaurant. Staff was very friendly and attentive. I would stay there again.

We drove from Santa Fe NM to Oakland CA and back, to see my parents. First time since pandemic. We slept in Needles for a night, both ways. No bed bugs, clean sheets and towels, but the room was dingy and if you have a sensitivity to fragrances you will not do well here. It stunk like cheap air freshener in both rooms. For the rates charged, they should clean their AC units and slap some fresh pint on the walls. The rooms are depressing!

Clean as ususal, but also a great handicapped room. Not all handicapped rooms are any good. This one had great grab bars all over and a sink you can roll up to if in a wheel chair. They provide a shower chair. The room was spacious enough to get around easily.

The front desk and check in area is nice. The front desk employees are professional and nice. The property in a whole needs to be gutted and build from the ground up. The rooms are fully carpeted with the exception of the bathroom. You walk into the room and get hit with an unclean smell automatically. The room is uninviting. It does it's purpose by being able to sleep on a bed and shower. I would not recommend walking on the carpet barefoot as it feels like you'll catch something. There is plenty of parking which is nice. You're also able to park if you have a trailer and boat. They do have a dog park which is basically a small gated area for your pet to handle business. The pool and hot tub needs to be resurfaced.

Despite being in a pandemic, apparently cleanliness was not important to the proprietor of this establishment.
Upon arrival and check-in, to our dismay, the room we were rented did not have ANY soap! No hand soap, no body wash, no shampoo, no conditioner. We called the front desk to advise them and the clerk told us he would let housekeeping know to bring us some. We waited and waited but noone ever showed.
After using the toilet, one should be able to wash their hands with water AND soap!

A good night sleep would help after the day's soapless adventures, that is if you could get use to sleeping on a hard, lumpy mattress!

I would say that this trip was more like Worst Western. This is not the first time I was disappointed by a Best Western property. I think they need to control their franchisees quality better. I won't stay at one again.

This was a nice clean place. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially considering the COVID-19 pandemic fatigue. There was a patio and pool, but that was not open from what I could tell. There is not much to say about the location, other than it is a place to stop on Interstate 40. The BNSF southern Transcon goes by 50-100 trains a day, as well as nearby trucks. Best advice for location is to go to Laughlin or Bullhead city for accommodations in this area. Also, gas in Needles was $1 more per gallon than the rest of California, even Victorville. Gas up there or Kingman, AZ.

We stopped here on our way to New Mexico. We chose this hotel for its location, the pool, and its outdoor hallways (we wanted to bring everything inside because of the heat, and rooms opening directly outdoors seems more COVID safe).

We were the only ones in the pool at 8 p.m., when it was still 102 degrees outside. The water was so cool and refreshing! The room was quiet, even with the AC on all night.

Best of all, masks were required and everyone seemed to be complying.

Traveling from TX to CA and stayed overnight. This appeared to be the best option available but it was filthy, tub/shower surround was badly damaged and harboring obvious mold ( unusable) , internet was unable to support any mapping applications and frustratingly slow otherwise and price was higher than any other hotel we stayed at on this trip. ( average price at 3 other locations w/AAA discount and tax was $120)

We decided to leave the Grand Canyon and come home but we could not make the drive in one day so we decided to find a hotel for the night. We found a room in Needles, CA. There was a trainee in the lobby and she was helpful but she knew she was slow because she was new so she apologized a lot. We got a downstairs room which was great but we the got the side of the motel that faces the train tracks and trains run all night long so bring earplugs if you’re sensitive to sound. The breakfast was good and had a wide variety. I would say the bed I slept in was not comfortable and the mattress should be replaced.

This has been our “GoTo” Hotel while we spent 6 months moving across country. We know we can rely on having a clean room with a comfortable bed, hot water for showers or cool in the hot summer. A/C worked well to keep cool in summer and heat in winter, Internet is reliable and overall a quiet hotel for sleeping. The hot breakfast in the morning is a nice bonus. The TV has Motor Trend and that’s all we need. If you want something good to eat, you will want to drive up the road to Arizona, BullHead City has real food options. (Plus Gas is a whole lot cheaper over the River) Nothing good in Needles except the hot breakfast in the morning at the Hotel.

The rooms all face the exterior with covered walkways to separate private doors. There are exterior stairs in a couple locations on each side. You don't go indoors to get to your room.
