Really nice traditional California motel in heart of Barstow near excellent Mexican and Italian restaurants with good bars. Big pool in spacious courtyard with view toward mountains. Very good breakfast buffet. Nice desk staff.

Passing through Barstow I have never really wanted to stay there unless shelling out the $160/ni the Hampton in at the outlet mall wanted. WAAAYYY over priced. The California Inn however was very reasonable, the front desk staff were helpful and professional and the room was much better than expected. I was concerned about the train right behind the property...

Good price for good value, clean room, stayed both directions on last trip to California - easy overnight local. The pool isn't heated, but it is a good size for people staying longer or later in the season when the sun is up longer. Lots of cats - which made my daughter very happy.

The room was clean. The staff was accommodating and extremely nice. The beds were comfortable and the continental breakfast was pretty good. We arrived late in the evening (11p) and were greeted with a welcoming smile and good directions about how to get to the room and when and where the continental breakfast would be. We received a call from...

We were looking for somewhere on a budget to overrnight on a drive from Arizona to LA and this place fitted the bill perfectly.

Close to the interstate and easy to find. Amenities close by such as gas stations and eateries. Eateries are within walking distance. Had good choice of foods for breakfast. A good value for traveling through the area.

The breakfast was pretty good with scrambled eggs and sausage, hotel has a washer and dryer on 2nd floor, rooms are decent and quiet off the highway. It was a nice hotel for the price. Clean and comfortable!

This was a solid pick for only $66 (ex tax) per night. Outdated deco (yellow wallpaper, old lamps, those old-fashioned flowery bed throws...) but otherwise all fine: spacious rooms, very comfortable beds, clean rooms. Fridge, microwave and coffee machine included.

Front desk lady was friendly, check in was a breeze, clean rooms and safe environment. Bed was comfortable, big rooms, new appliances, entire building is clean and felt secured. Close to the freeway and to restaurants

We just needed a cheap room half way between Vegas and LA and this hotel met our needs and provided a decent cooked breakfast for free. Room was clean and well kept and it wasn't noisy or full of drama like other affordable hotels. Would recommend it to anyone.
