TravelPod Member ReviewsRoute 66 Motel Barstow
I highly recommend this motel; at $49.50 + tax for three of us the 1920's stucco-style cabin was simple and comfortable and included a breakfast nook and a well-appointed separate bathroom. Then of course, there's the old cars and memorabilia to peruse out in the courtyard.....great photo ops! If you aren't too attached to all the trimmings and associated costs, this is the hotel for you.

I'm not sure what Barstow is known for, other than being a pit stop on the legendary Route 66 (which evokes more "road" movies, and even a TV show). In fact, on the first night of our journey, we stayed at the Quality Inn ...

... and hills look brown and bare without much else but sandy rocks. We can see narrow dirt tracks zigzagging up into the brown hills. We suppose they're ATV roads or hunting roads. No one else in their right mind would drive up them.
We passed the turn off to Death Valley and kept going. We’re not going there. But we are going into the Mohave Desert to Barstow, CA. Along the way we passed a solar farm with acres and ...
