Comfortable bed

Pros: Pets allowed.
Walls are thin, manager wasn't around much, waited for him to come back 20 minutes from getting a pizza before checking in. No note on door.

Not for families or women traveling alone

Pros: cheap
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, bad area
We never checked in because when we arrived, there was a group of construction workers having a party on the balcony. The hotel is in an iffy part of town and we did not feel safe at the hotel. The reviews say that it is newly renovated, but the outside of the facility did not look well taken care of.

The room was furnished well and very comfortable. The laoction was good, you didn't need to move your vehicle to find a place to eat.

the lobby was being remodeled at the time, but staff worked well around the construction. Our reservation was right and our check in was done quickly without any problems.

Nice people and quality rooms-- Nathan from Santa Rosa, CA

Stopped in en route from Sedona to coastal Cali, amd found that this motel, although in the midst of a remodel, was run by a very nice family and had great quality accomodations for the price. It looks a little narrower from the street than other hotels nearby, but don't let that fool you! All non-smoking and well equipped rooms :)

Best Motel We've Ever Encountered

Got caught in Thanksgiving Holiday traffic on the 58. Decided to return to Barstow and stay the night. Via cell phone, I had a friend research Barstow Motels on the Internet. He found about 6 for us to look at. Some looked great from outside, but rooms were less than promised. However, here at the Roadway Inn, starting from the front desk, with the tremendous customer service from a 16 year old local girl, through the clean and safe rooms, we found the most superb motel to stay at for the night. This is a little secret in Barstow. Price was right for Seniors at $55 + tax, and like others before us, we rec'd discount coupons for near-by Carrows and other places. What a darling motel, and great customer service.
