The price was great and the staff was friendly enough. The room smelled when we first walked in. The bed was comfortable enough. The carpet is dirty. There is mold in the shower. The water pressure is very good though. The a/c sucks! We were both so hot and there was no air movement to help out. Finally just kept... More

Since we were only there about 4 hrs, we figured it wasn't too bad for the price. But after staying one night we decided to pay a little more and go somewhere else for our second night. The pillows were about 2 inches thick and the blanket was terrible. Big holes and very very worn, my dogs have better blankets!... More

We stayed here this week, recommended by a gentleman who ran a RV place, where we stopped for directions. It was a good choice, it was clean, spacious with good facilities and a light breakfast included. The Manager was extremely helpful with guidance for our ongoing trip to Death Valley and was even kind enough to assist us on I.T.... More

We stopped at the Econo Lodge in Barstow, CA., thinking that since it was AAA recommended it had to be all right. It wasn't! We asked for a room downstairs with a king sized bed and were told that the owner/manager? (we don't know which) hadn't called the maid in and all he had was upstairs. We were told that... More

We have never been treated with such a terrible attitude then we were when requesting a room at this location. The hotel clerk had a very negative attitude and when I asked him why he became aggressive and wanted to argue with me. At that point I asked for my card back and he used profanity and told us to...
