    This is an Oasis along a dusty long drive! Coming from Oregon for a family birthday celebration! Love this motel: clean, fresh, excellent amenities, breakfast provided at a restaurant and beautiful grounds.

    Hotel is easy to access, clean and very quiet. A voucher is given for breakfast at cafe across parking lot. Room was quiet and well maintained. Internet was quick. Hotel staff friendly and very professional

    I hate writing two hundred words. That is ridiculous! I like the motel, easy off and on to the highway. Blah, blah,blah,blah,blah blah blah blah blah blah ablah blah blah double blah triple blah, quadruple blah quintuple blah. That is all.

    « A notch below a typical BW »

    This hotel is more like a 1970s motel. Two floors and stairs. Grounds and the building are a bit dingy. We drove cross country and stayed in six hotels of several brands and this hotel was not only the worst but the most expensive. However, there is not much to choose from in Needles.

    « Beg Bugs Came Home with Us!!! »

    We stayed at two Best Westerns in a row, one night each. We arrived home with bed bugs for the first time in our life!!! The time, money,energy, medical bills, physical suffering to combat these pests gives me great pause as to why any chain such as this would allow these creatures.

    « Great stopover »

    This was the third destination on my trip across the US, where I stayed for one night ? please see my other reviews: The Mirage, Las Vegas, and the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn, Tusayan. I flew out to Las Vegas with Virgin Atlantic from Manchester, UK and then picked up a rental car after four nights in Vegas. My party consisted of two adults and one teenager aged 17. On arrival at this hotel, we were greeted by a very nice and helpful man who explained everything to us and gave us vouchers for complimentary breakfasts at the café next door. The hotel rooms here are set in a motel style and our room was a good size with two large double beds. There was a wash basin at the far end of the room and a separate room with a shower and toilet. There was also a coffee machine, microwave and fridge in the room. Everything was clean and appeared to be well maintained. There was a train line nearby, and when a train first came by it sounded quite loud. However, we never heard any more noise after that and it was nice and quiet during the night. There was also plenty of free parking. There was also a coffee machine in reception and a small, but lovely little pool area, which looked great when it was lit up at night! It all looked very clean and we sat out there for a little while in the evening and early in the morning before we left. Complimentary pool towels are also available at reception. It was very hot in Needles while we were there. We had both our evening meal and breakfast at the café next door (Juicy's River Cafe). Both the food and staff were great! We enjoyed our overnight stop in the desert and would use this hotel again if we were visiting the area in the future ? would recommend!

    « Great value, clean, super friendly, convenient »

    Very friendly staff. Nice beds, linens and clean room. Nice flat screen. Super convenient for our trek across AZ on i40. Free bfast too at next door homey diner. Absolutely recommended! Tesla charger very close.

    « Clean and well appointed »

    A nice clean room, with all the amenities you'd expect from a mid-range hotel, at a mid-range price. Nice sized flat screen TV with DirecTV service, wifi that works well, lots of towels and tissues, and comfortable beds. Ice and snack machines in the lobby. An outdoor pool, jacuzzi, and sauna were nice additions to this hotel. By the pool there are padded lounging chairs and tables, set up near fire pits and flames for warmth in the evenings. Nice touch! No breakfast here (coffee avail. in the lobby), but discount coupons are available for Juicy's River Cafe next door where we had a nice dinner and breakfast.

    « Pet Friendly, Clean & Comfortable »

    We stayed 1 night in this hotel with our large dog. There was a small fenced-in pet area where our dog could be off leash. Staff was friendly, room was clean and the 2 Queen beds were comfortable. The hotel partners with the restaurant next door; Juicy's Famous River Cafe, for discounts on dinner and complimentary breakfast vouchers. The food was adequate and did the job. The temperature was in the high 90s so we stayed inside and kept the air conditioner on in our room. Our room faced the nearby railroad tracks but the noise from the trains was not too loud, especially with the air conditioner going. We would stay here again as a stopover place for future travels.

    « The Best Western that is certainly NOT the best... »

    Stayed here one night during a 23 days Route 66 trip through 9 states...and this was the worst hotel of the tour. There were 2 towels each, both thin, rough and smelling of chlorine (clearly "fresh" from the pool). Very small, lumpy pillows. Staff peremptory/brusque/curt at check-in. Worst breakfast arrangement of our trip - you have to go to the restaurant next door with your paper slip which allows you about a quarter of a normal breakfast. You can have a coffee OR a tea OR a juice (no refills). You can have oatmeal OR toast OR eggs. The restaurant has a full selection that you can choose from and pay more for but even Days Inn/Sleep Inn/Econo Lodge breakfasts are FAR better than this. AVOID this hotel - there's got to be better in Needles!

    « decent but overpriced »

    decent place,clean,everything works,ample parking, "free" breakfast at moderately overpriced restaurant next door. could be $20 cheaper if you didn't have to pay for the "free" breakfast. HINT: if you haven't reserved in advance, sit in the parking lot and reserve a room through the best western website and save $30.

    « Schoon hotel »

    We werden vriendelijk ontvangen en de kamer was heerlijk koel bij aankomst. Het was die dat extreem warm volgens het personeel. De kamer was fris schoon en ruim, met prima bedden. Gratis wifi.De was wasmachine en droger waren aanwezig om de hoek in de gang. Avond eten was prima in het restaurant verder op. Het ontbijt was inbegrepen, lekker en goed, maar erg weinig. We were friendly and the room was lovely and cool upon arrival. It was that that extremely hot according to the staff. The room was clean and spacious, fresh. Free Wi-Fi Internet access included The Laundry washer and dryer were present around the corner in the hallway. Dinner was fine in the restaurant The breakfast was included, further on. tasty and good, but very little. Also on advice from our travel company Amerika2go.

    « Beds are worn out »

    Beds need to be replaced. The staff were very nice. Location for my purpose was good and Juice's restaurant was very good. If I would have slept better I think this would have been a great place to stay. The mattresses are extremely worn out.

    « Best Western Needles »

    I travel between San Diego and Cortez, Colorado. I break up the trip home by staying at this Best Western in Needles, CA. I feel safe here as I am traveling alone. The rooms are clean, neat and roomy, and for me the bed is just right. The people are always friendly and accommodating. I will continue to stay here when I travel between San Diego and Cortez.

    « Good Clean Rooms »

    A very good motel for a stopover on Route 66. Good Breakfast on offer with clean good sized rooms. Parking close by room and walking distance to restaurant. Friendly staff only to happy to help, wifi good. Pool was clean and refreshing after a hot day on the bike.

    « Great place to stay in Needles, CA when you are traveling on interstate 40 »

    We stayed here coming and going from our trip to Sedona. The rooms are adequate, very clean, and not a lot of noise from outside. We liked the fact that breakfast was provided at a small restaurant next door. Also, they welcome our pet poodle.

    « Adequate for a stopover »

    I selected the hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews, which I found pretty accurate. The hotel is basic and clean (although the lobby DOES pong of cigarette smoke). It is good for the price range. The breakfast at Juicys was OK.

    « Stop for the night on our way to Sedona »

    The checkin was fast and the desk personnel very courteous. The room was very clean. The pool area looked good but we didn't use it. There is a restaurant next door that will give you a 10% discount with your room key. It has very good food and a full service bar. The free breakfast is at this restaurant. Very close to I40 with easy on-off ramps.

    « Fall 2016 »

    This hotel is by far the best value for the money. The staff is outstanding and professional. We stay at this same hotel each time we go to Needles, CA during our summer river trips. The set up with the complimentary breakfasts can't be beat. A very nice place to stay.

    « Good stopover »

    We had a large executive room which was great, the bed was really comfortable and the air con worked well. Having Juicy's Famous River Cafe next door is brilliant - we had dinner and breakfast and both were delicious and the service was great. We did not have time to get to the pool but it looked great.

    « Standard room, awesome pool »

    The room is what you'd expect. It was clean and the bed was big. They must have recently updated the pool because it was awesome. We walked next door to the gas station a got a beer and then soaked in the pool and hot tub as the sun went down. It was very enjoyable. Only issue we had was with booking. We booked through a third party and they said they had two queens which is what we needed and booked and then when we got there they refused us that room and made 3 of us stay in a king bed room. Other than that great stay in Needles, ca.

    « quiet, comfortable, convenient »

    Spent the night here without advanced reservations, since our schedule was unpredictable. The only room left was a "luxury suite" on the second floor. the room was VERY nice and quiet. HOWEVER, there is no elevator and no one to help with luggage so hauling it up to the second floor was exhausting at the end of a long day of driving. We were on a longer road trip, so we had heavy bags. The parking available to us was convenient to the room, but not where we felt good about leaving our valuables in the car overnight...backside in the dark. On the positive note, the desk staff were quite pleasant, and the lobby was cute and had things for people who are tourists to buy, or browse. Not a place to sit...more like a gift shop lobby. And, the breakfast is a voucher to the restaurant next door. We opted to eat one of the free meals rather than take the 20% discount, and it was delicious. The wait staff were all friendly.

    « One of the better BWs »

    After a while you can pick a good hotel quite quickly. The lobby is clean and interesting. The check-in staff are helpful and friendly and the room is everything you expect and more. What is more there is a restaurant on-site where breakfast is served and it is delicious scrambled eggs. Laundry and pool both good. You only downside those stupid square pillows.

    « Not A Winner, But It Will Do »

    We passed through Needles on our way home from Arizona to Northern California. You usually can't go wrong staying at a Best Western, but this was not one of those times. We feared the other options might be worse, so we stayed. The lobby smelled like smoke from people who smoke near the lobby entrance, I suppose. It is supposed to be a 100% non-smoking hotel, but upon entering our room, it was obvious that someone had smoked in the room at some point. The rooms are beginning to show their age. On the plus side, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the AC worked great. The free breakfast is at the restaurant across the parking lot. You get one of two breakfast options. Neither the breakfast nor the coffee is very good. Option 1 was scrambled eggs w/diced ham in it (overcooked), hashbrowns (just OK), and a biscuit (awful).

    « A nice place to be.... »

    Stopped here on our travels along route 66 Friendly staff Nice room but could do with updating Breakfast in the restaurant next door. Scrambled egg , hash brown and beverage was just OK. Overall it was clean and generally a nice place to stay.

    « A/C was not on but other than that thumbs up »

    I've stayed at this hotel several times on my way into Pirate's Cove. It's very convenient and I like being able to eat at the restaurant for breakfast. The pool is also nice. My only complaint was that the air condition was not turned on when we arrived and it was HOT! It also took a long time for the room to cool off once we turned it on. Other than that, I've never had a problem and I'm sure I'll be back.

    « Great Stay! »

    The room was very clean and pleasant; bed was comfy, too! The staff was so nice and helpful and assisted us with our travel needs. I especially liked the breakfast amenities; not the usual continential fare.

    « Family trip »

    We enjoyed our stay at Best Western on the Co River. Two adults, 2 kids & one dog. While a lot of places state they are 'dog friendly' this is the first time that I actually think they meant it! We were able to walk our dog anywhere without any issues. Nice little dog run area is fenced off with dog baggies for clean up. Very nice pool area enjoyed by the kids & adults. Staff was very friendly. Cute gift shop with a variety of things to look over. Will most likely return here again.

    « Best Option in Needles »

    Clean hotel, friendly staff, and free breakfast at the restaurant next door. A/C worked great, which is a MUST for this hot city. The room was spacious and had a fridge and microwave, along with free internet. I would stay here again if I HAD to visit Needles. (Not my city of choice, lol)

    « Could do better »

    Staff was awesome and Hotel overall was very clean. The mattress was horrible and needed replacement. I even switched rooms in an attempt to find a better one but the next one was worse. I barely slept due to being uncomfortable.

    « Great place for a last minute stay »

    Hotel was nice. Exterior looked like any typical exterior-hallway hotel. However, I believe the interior walls are of higher quality as we experienced no extraneous noises or sounds, despite being in an adjoining room. Reviews complained of train sounds. We chose the side away from the train tracks. Breakfast was offered at the restaurant next door. You only get 3 options, so breakfast could be better. It appears all the hotel/motels in this area offer breakfast at a diner next door. Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. Wi-Fi was great. It was a bit pricey at $119/night at a last minute booking...considering Red Roof Inn's newly renovated rooms were going for $65...and they were just down the street...

    « Lovely oasis in the desert »

    We stayed overnight here on a road trip from Phoenix to SF in August (yes, we are insane, drove Mohave in August.) I was a little hesitant about Needles overall, but this hotel was lovely. Pool was great, front desk staff was friendly, and I really felt like I was on vacation. In the middle of nowhere. Great safe hotel.

    « help in Needles »

    We came in late and got the lasts room we were very grateful for all the help from everyone there. It was very hot we were rushing to get home and they helped us in every way. Keith was helpful with us on the phone and also helped us get a extension cord for our Cpak machine.

    « This is the "best" in town? »

    This hotel was suggested to me as the best place to stay in Needles. I don't want to see the worst. My room was smelly, (stale smoke smell, but a non-smoking room, smelled like urine in places, too) dated, very uncomfortable bed, way over-priced--Suggest staying in Kingman instead, even though about an hour away.

    « Great Access to all Directions »

    I am a bi-yearly visitor at this Best Western. It was recently remodeled and has a really nice pool area and BBQ setup I did not see one person using in the 111* F heat. Let's go over the whole experience. Reservations were made through the Best Western reservation number and not directly with the hotel. The rate was considerably cheaper. During checkout after 4 nights the desk wanted to know how we got that rate and we told them. They said they don't honor those reservation rates, but took them anyway. That was odd. We had arrived a little early in the day. Rooms were not ready which is not uncommon. The lounge area was very comfortable and the desk help was very accommodating and pleasant. We eventually checked in but were not able to get the room area we had requested (which is not guaranteed). The room was fine, but on the "back-side". Now if you make a reservation at this hotel, try to get a room on the west side away from the train tracks. The train noise was not hideous but clearly very loud at 2:30 AM, 3:00 AM, 3:30 AM , etc. through the morning as they prepared to depart on there cross country travel. Housekeeping was interesting. Rooms were very nice and prepared for us. We had one day where we just needed towels and had to go get them ourselves, and another day we wanted the room made up and didn't get that upon our return. We inquired and got some story about "we had a do not disturb sign on the door". Well, couldn't be because when we left someone had taken it off and we actually had to get another one. We were told there were a lot of complaints like this and that the two regular girls were off and this was temp help. OK. Enough excuses. Its easy to get a better system in place and some quality control here. The Direct TV channels available were LA feed which surprised me and were very good. A plus. This hotel provides a free breakfast with a card you pick up at "Juicy's River Café" next door. Super nice folks in there. Choice of 3 items--typical scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, toast or yogurt and granola, or a couple of boxes of cereal and a carafe of milk. We were also offered a 20% discount on any item we ordered from the menu. We were very happy with the standard offering which were plentiful and tasty. There is also a number of fast food places nearby and gas stations with service and a Circle K next to the hotel for some quick snacks. So to wrap this up, I do recommend the stay here but remember it is in Needles with a lot of river boaters there for the good freeway access to travel to your destinations.

    « Great stop for rail fans »

    I am a rail-fan and visit the Mojave desert on a regular base for watching trains. This hotel is a favorite of mine for those trips. I appreciate that the staff gave me rooms that faced the track as requested. Seems they did some upgrades to the rooms. Still basic but I like it! The breakfast arrangement is good as well. Way better than the usual offer with continental bf on site.

    « Best in Needles »

    This is the best lodging in Needles Ca. For the area, I think the cost is a little high. We have stayed several times with our two little dogs as well as family. The place is very clean and beds are comfortable. The pool area is nice, has a fire pit (not needed during our trip being that it was 108 degrees). You get a free breakfast at the restaurant next door (We did not use) however we did get dinners to go and ate in the room. The hotel is very convenient to the river and freeway access. Two launch ramps within 1 mile. Don't get gas until you cross the river and AZ about a mile (You save on avg. $1.30 per gallon)

    Great stay!!! have stayed there before. In fact our day was spend outside Kingman and we traveled back every night just to stay here. The rooms are extremely clean and spacious. The service is great with a darling lobby and Route 66 goodies to purchase, Next door was 7-eleven which was super convenient. Will definitely stay again!

    « Good Location »

    Very good place to stay on those hot desert days in that area. It was 118° the day I stayed there and it was nice haveing a pool and a local resturaunt with lounge in the same parking lot. Not having to stay out in the heat too long.

    « A clean, well run Inn with a bit of local flavor... »

    A good roadtrip rest point if you are heading east and south from California (or returning). This is a good jumping off location to explore the old Route 66. The restaurant next door, which serves breakfast for the Inn friendly and economical. The AC works well in the rooms (which is important).

    « Hot! Not a hit! »

    It was 116 degrees but our room was still hot. The AC didn't keep up. The room was clean but the lobby smelled of smoke. The breakfast was included but at the restaurant across lot, it was good, 3 choices of plates. The shampoo and conditioner were in wall mounted dispensers

    « Great stay on our Route66 trip »

    Arrived to the motel after long drive expecting very little, but this turned out to be a great stop! They had very nice service staff, good clean rooms and especially beautiful outdoor pool (live fires and palms as decoration) which our kids enjoyed a lot. Added plus for a breakfast which was served in a restaurant next door, not typical lobby coffee and cereals. Just get your fueltank filled before Needles, fuel prices are horrible!

    « Last Minute Decision »

    We had booked a hotel in Laughlin and it was NOT what we were led to believe from their website. Too tired to drive home, we went to Needles in search of an affordable overnight stay. Excellent service, only 2 rooms left, both handicapped King. The gal that checked us in was patient, professional, kind and efficient. The best! The lobby was pretty chaotic with lots of folks moving about. Room met our needs and budget. Great breakfast included in restaurant next door.

    « Has an enclosed, graveled dog bathroom area with baggies and garbage!!! »

    This hotel is fine for traveling across country. Clean, bed was decent, had nice soap, shampoo, conditioner dispensers etc. Includes a small fridge and microwave, and coffee maker - but what I have to tell all my fellow "traveling with dogs" friends - OMG!!! The nicest doggie doodoo area I've seen!! They put in a nice sized, fenced gravel area with a lovely bench and a doggie doodoo pick up station with baggies and a garbage. I was VERY impressed. Wonderful wonderful thing to see! There weren't giant piles of poo in little areas of grass like other hotels, that claim to be dog friendly. Why can't all dog friendly hotels do this? Loved it!!

    « Wonderful hotel »

    This is our favorite Best Western Hotel, and we have stayed at many. They even have a dog area that is fenced in so you can have your dog off-leash. It is very clean and comfortable. There are two restaurants within walking distance and one (Juicys) has an area where you can have your dog with you.

    « Top local management does make a difference! »

    This is a fine example of how local management can make a difference! This is a well run BW franchise. Very friendly staff. Very helpful. What stands out is how tidy, clean and well maintenanced this place is. Pool area is very very clean. We stayed in room 202 which seemed to have a refurbished bathroom. Excellent stay and my congratulations to the local management and staff.

    « Great Customer Service »

    We recently stayed here to and from our visit to the Grand Canyon. We asked for a suite, so we had two queen beds and a pull-out couch. The space was large, and had all the comforts: mini fridge, microwave, FREE internet, Cable, etc. One of the rooms we had was a little more updated, like a fancier shower, etc. But overall the place was clean and comfortable. On our return trip, our room was very warm. After calling maintenance and still not cooling down, we were given a new room with no hassle. I think they handled that situation professionally and it was appreciated. The lobby has some drinks and a popcorn machine, which was nice, and my family really enjoyed the pool and fire pit areas. Oh, and breakfast next door was good - and if you don't want what the hotel choices are, you get 20% off your order. I would definitely stay here again.

    Convenient off the freeway, reasonably clean, standard amentities (microwave, refrig, cable TV, AC, tub/shower and GREAT/working showerhead). Nice pool. Price was a bit high, but there are not many choices in Needles. Definitely looked the best out of the other options we saw in town.

    This hotel is wonderful. The staff are polite and the place is very clean. Would highly recommend if you are going through Needles! On a side note: Not sure why the Review "requires" 200 or more characters...what's with that? Must not know about quality vs. quantity.

    « Very Good, Comfortable and Well priced »

    We stayed in a few Best Westerns on our trip and this was probably the best. Good sized rooms, comfortable bed and hot showers. We arrived late and it was an easy check in. Not the most picturesque you will go to by surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the freeway and railway line. Breakfast at Juicys over the road.

    « Nice stay »

    This was a planned stop on our way to Florida. The temperature was 120 degrees as we got to the hotel. Fortunately the air conditioner worked extremely well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable as were the beds. The internet worked well enough.The hotel offered vouchers for a free breakfast next door which was good. For a discount you could choose something other than the free offerings. There was a train that would roll by occasionally but it did not keep us awake so it was not a problem. We would stay here again.

    This place was wonderful...from the staff to the room to the pool area. The rooms are updated, and really nice.. The staff is absolutely great...super helpful and very, very nice... The pool area was extra perfect.. They have a nice fire pit at night, and it is very welcoming. Loved it.. We did not have any complaints about the breakfast..It is free..you really can't complain.. Am at BW now in Barstow, and this one DOES NOT compare to the Needles facility. Don't get me wrong...just loved the Needles one..... Highly recommend staying here. I accidently posted this on the Del Sol Inn, but TA hasn't changed it to this facility. This is where I stayed - not the Del Sol.

Very comfortable beds, I was able to take a bath without the water draining out and the air conditioner worked very good in extremely hot weather. The pool and Jacuzzi were very relaxing. The room had more than enough towels for my liking. The complementary breakfast exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this and any best western to all my friends and relatives, I also spread the word at my place of employment.

    « Great stay! »

    Our stay here was very brief, however is pleasant. All the Best Western employees that I had dealings with were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant next door is where they send you the next morning for your free breakfast, your choice of three different items. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Best hotel on the river or anywhere. »

    This place was surprisingly very nice. The staff was awesome and very friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The beds were so comfortable we slept like babies. And the free breakfast was so awesome with generous portions, did not expect that. Pool and spa was really nice, and the water was crystal clear, no fears for sanitation. We have a new faith for Best Western hotels.

    « Well run hotel »

    The outdoor pool and hot tub area was a big hit with the kids. Loved the decor with gas flames. Beds were the most comfy ever. Everything was clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast at the adjacent Juicy's restaurant was good. Note, the gratuity is not included, so I had to ask them to charge me 3 cents to leave a tip on my credit card. I guess that's the only weird thing about this hotel is that breakfast is slightly off site.

    « Convenient location, A/C and Tesla Supercharger »

    Tesla supercharger, 24x7 convenience store (with both a Subway and DQ ) located 200 yards away. Basic rooms - A/C Working fine - it was 117 when we arrived! Plenty of room for parking cars, trailers, and mobile homes. Breakfast coupons for Juicys river cafe in the adjacent parking lot.

    « Needles »

    I can't say enough good about this place. While traveling with my 2 brothers we had a minor accident at 2:00 a.m. finally towed to Needles (5:30) where we chose to go to the Best Western. This is the only point of complaint-where we were repeatedly told we should have called ahead. Luckily they had one room left (handicapped). We took it. Not sorry. Every other employee we have encountered has been more than friendly.helpful, accommodating, and courteous, even with all of the changes we went through with the car repairs. The room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed our unplanned stay very much. The bed was comfortable, A.C.worked very well, thank goodness! WIFI also worked very well. Thank you.

    Despite 12:30 am arrival, front desk staff were cheerful and very friendly. Room was well kept, neat and tidy. Did not have unpleasant smell to room that you sometimes encounter. Sleeping was easy. Bed very comfortable. Direct TV ? Cool. Coffee in lobby in morning was not weak although real creamer would be preferred. Overall, best choice for stay in Needles California. Will definitely be going there again.

    « Hot? They've got great AC! And it's too far to Barstow tonight... »

    And average BW property, with a breakfast deal that includes freebie base meal at Juicy's next door--a family run diner-esque joint with basic American--, where the rest of the menu will entice you more than the freebie proferred. It was 108 at 9:30 at night when I crossed the Colorado River coming to Needles, but also well past my time to get off the road; I was grateful for the AC, the clean room, the pool, the welcoming management, and the primarily English-speaking staff. If you can make it to Barstow,there's a better BW there, with less costly rooms for Rewards members.

    Convenient location for a short stop, but not for a longer vocational stay. The surroundings is dominated by business and commercial units. Pool area nicely updated, clean and modern.

    « Good hotel, very poor breakfast »

    We went on a road trip (june 2016) and booked all our hotels via Best Western: Inglewood (LA) -> Palm Springs -> Needles -> Grand Canyon -> Page -> Bryce Canyon -> Zion -> Las Vegas -> Mammoth Lakes -> Yosemite -> San Fransisco -> Santa Maria -> Inglewood. We were very friendly welcomed by the receptionist. We had a large room with a very comfortable bed and pillows, bathroom was rather basic (so far in every hotel, seems to be a trademark of BW). There was a good airconditioning system and a refrigerator with little freezer, what is interesting because of the high temperatures. There is a nice swimming pool with extra cool drinks and popcorn for guests. Free wifi with good connection was available and there was no extra charge for parking space. We choose for breakfast with the reservation. We received a voucher that we could use in the restaurant next to the hotel (Juicy's Famous River Cafe). Although we also went there for diner (this was fine), we were very disappointed in the breakfast. With our voucher we could choose between a scrambled egg OR cereals OR some fruit with yoghurt -> apart from the limited choice, the portions where too small. We were told that we could choose something else from the menu with 20% discount, but in my opinion that's not what you expect when you reserve breakfast in a 3-star BW hotel.

    We stayed one night here. The rooms are nice and clean, with the sink and mirror in the main room and toilet and shower separate. The AC is very noisy. Staff is very kind.

    « Not bad at all, clean and good pool area »

    Route 66 stopover A very good stop over considering it was basically the middle of nowhere, this is the #1 in Needles as there are approx 6 hotels! Room ok, train is EXTREMELY noisy. When we first heard it we thought a Lear jet was flying over, no joke! We asked for a room on the non-train side but he said there were not any and the train was not that noisy anyway. He has clearly got used to it. Having said that we slept well and we heard nothing in the nght which is the important point. The pool and jacuzzi are a great addition, pool was freezing, jacuzzi was boiling! Breakfast next door was bland and horrid but hubby ate it all. You can buy of the menu for 20% reduction. Just note that when it states bacon and egg free this is scrambled egg with a few tiny pieces of bacon in it.

    « Extremely comfortable »

    We stayed at this hotel during our Route 66 trip and this was almost the last hotel we stayed at. We were really pleased with its location as we liked the quiet atmosphere around it, super big and comfortable bed, fast wireless and discreet staff. Very goood food and drinks at a Juicy's restaurant next door, where we also had breakfast, which was complimentary from the hotel. We enjoyed our stay there.

    The Best Western Colorado River Inn was is new condition, very clean and has easy access to Hwy. 40. The employees were very friendly and efficient.

    « $130 room total rip »

    We've stayed here at least four tmes previously and payed less than $100. We were tired and paid anyway. The manager was insistant that rigfht across the Colorado River from Needles, where the Colorado is located, not five miles away in Arizona, the prices were the same as "THE SEASON" was underway and prices are high everywhere. BUT, next morning we went for gas across the river in AZ and NO, the prices were much lower for gas AND motels. Gas went from $3.79 a gallon to $2.13 and motel prices were similarly lower. Do not be tricked by such sleezy (manager w/ British accent) salesmen. When in Needles, find your wauy across the river toward Bullhead City AZ. You don't have to go far, not all the way to Bullhead (20 miles), to get way better prices.

    « Not the best value for your dollar »

    I'm not saying this is not a good hotel, it is. However, for the price I paid, I think it was only average. The best thing about the hotel is that it is pet-friendly, and I needed that, so I paid the room rate. If I hadn't had pets with me, I would have shopped around a bit more. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. They have a nice program set up with the next door restaurant (not a Denny's) where you can get a percentage off the tab if you are a guest. I would be likely to recommend this hotel if I felt money were not a concern for the potential guest.

    Stayed here 3 nights and did not have any issues. I prefer staying on ground level floor related to my age and hauling stuff up the stairs. Internet is awesome. Breakfast at Juicy's (included) is great. No complaints. Train tracks are close by, but did not keep us up at night. Great Chinese restraunt down the road as well as Juicy's next door.

Didn't have a very restful night due to hard bed and train close by.

    I loved the breakfast at Juicy's (next door cafe) I had the eggs benedict and the eggs was cooked to perfection. The hotel was clean and very comfortable, the decor was was a little dated and the train noise woke me up during the night...If I ever stay there again I will put on some "white noise" to keep it a non issue. Perfect for staying close to Laughlin without staying in a casino hotel. Not something that I would have taken my wife tho!

Absolutely beautiful at night with the gas fire pits. When I inquired about if alcohol was allowed at the pool they indicate why sure and that there was a party store in the gas station next door. Great gift shop for Route 66 stuff and other Southwest collectibles. I will definitely stay there the next trip to Needles.

    The staff at this Best Western are the best of any hotel chain, and resort hotel, I have ever visited, and an asset to the company. I cannot say enough good about Keith, Aidee and Ty. They were all professional, helpful, and made me feel like a treasured guest. So I can assume that they treat everyone the same. All were knowledgeable of the history of the area and gave me directions to historic and interesting sites. I loved how the lobby was set up and the garden out front too. I spent some time in the garden to unwind after flight and drive down. If at all possible, aside from business travel, I intend to return and stay at the BW Colorado River Inn for a vacation. Thank you BW Colorado River Inn for such a great stay, though short. Ty, Keith and Aidee are great assets to your company!

    « I enjoyed it so much, I added another night! »

    The Best Western Colorado River Inn is an excellent stop after a long journey across the desert. This hotel and adjacent restaurant (Juicy's) has completely changed my opinion of Needles. I was on a solo trip following Route 66 and the old Santa Fe Railroad and wanted to stay in a hotel with a view of the railroad tracks. Although you can see the tracks from the back of the hotel, the noise is not too bad. Full Disclosure: I wanted the view and the noise so I may be a bit biased. If in doubt, stay on the front (North) side of the hotel. They say "First Impressions are the best impressions" and the lobby of this hotel proves that out. The front desk staff are very friendly and welcoming. The lobby has displays of Route 66 memorabilia and Route 66 items for sale. There is a popcorn maker, TV and comfortable couch if you just want to relax and listen to the parakeets . Thats's right, they have parakeets in the lobby! Very soothing after a long hot drive. The pool and spa area were very inviting. There is also a gas bbq grill and outdoor kitchen area. I don't usually go in the pool and spa at hotels by myself but I made an exception here and I am glad I did. Even in February the pool is warm enough for a quick swim but then right back into the hot tub. Finally, to the room: As I mentioned earlier, I requested a room on the back facing the tracks. I was rewarded with a near constant parade of trains. The noise should not be that bad as the tracks are probably 100-150 yards away. The room was very clean and equipped with table, chairs, fridge, microwave, flatscreen tv and plenty of hangers and places to put your clothes. The bathroom wasn't huge but since the sink and counter space were in the room, it made up for the small room for the toilet and bath/shower. The soap, shampoo and hand lotion are dispensed from a fixture on the wall, a neat feature if you ask me as it reduces waste. Finally, the best item on the list: Instead of a boring old continental breakfast bar, Colorado River Inn offers a meal voucher at Juicy's Famous River Cafe right next door. There are three breakfast options included with your stay or you can pick any breakfast item off the menu and receive a 20% discount. I had Option 1 on both days which consists of scrambled eggs with diced ham and cheese, biscuit, hashbrowns and a drink (I had orange juice). There was plenty of food and the hostess treated me just like a regular. As I stated in the title, "I liked it so much, I added another night." I was on a relaxing solo trip with no particular place to be so I added another night and stayed for another great day. I look forward to returning to The Best Western Colorado River Inn very soon. **I will cover the restaurant in an upcoming review**

    « A non-smoking hotel? I don't think so »

    This should have been a comfortable stay in decent hotel. The first hint of trouble was walking into the lobby and being hit with the stink of cigarette smoke. Combined with the Harley gear for sale, I felt for a moment like I was in a biker bar. We went to our room which was clean and attractive. Everything was fine at first, then our room seemed to fill with smoke. I looked outside to see if someone was smoking near our room, but could see or hear no one nearby. We closed the door and window, but it didn't help. We kept experiencing smoke on and off all evening. I finally complained. The young woman at the desk apologized and offered to discount our room which I accepted as the only satisfaction I was likely to get. The hotel did have some pluses that were overshadowed by the problems. They have an attractive pool area with gas fire and pretty lighting. The diner next door served good food. The free breakfast selection at the diner was pretty limited compared to buffet breakfasts, but it was made to order and we didn't have to eat in the smoky lobby. If was obvious in the morning that after my complaint someone had sprayed air freshener to cover the lobby smoke.

    « All this and parakeets too »

    This motel is what one would expect from Best Western. It is very clean, and very comfortable. Everything works properly, and there is plenty of warm water. I was also very please with the courteous help at the desk. The motel does not provide breakfast, but it does provide a coupon good at Juicy's next door which is good for either a) one particular breakfast free or b) a substantial discount on any other breakfast. That's a very nice addition, as Juicy's was a good place to eat breakfast. I liked the framed Charlie Brown cartoons on the walls, the one with Snoopy's brother Spike who lives in Needles in a cactus. I'd forgotten all about him. The thing I really loved though was the very large cage of parakeets in the lounge opposite the front desk. I must have spent an hour sitting on the sofa talking to the budgies. This may be a little thing, but it really made my day.

    Breakfast was not in house. I was given a choice of three different items at a café near the facility. Food there was neither filling or very good in taste. Other than the breakfast issue this hotel has great rooms, quite area except for the railroad being so close which had some usage during the night. The staff were very helpful in helping me park my vehicle and the 22ft utility trailer I pull behind it. The allowed me to park in front of the lobby where the trailer would be safer since it is full of valuable products.

    « Somewhat noisy; good dog area »

    We were very pleased with the service at the front desk and found the room and bathroom adequate to our needs. If you're traveling with an infant, this place is okay -- they will issue a pack'n'play for a deposit. There's also a small fenced area for dogs, which is nice. Our main problem with the place was noisy slamming doors (they open to the outside), which kept our baby up late. A more minor concern was that the lobby was decorated with scantily clad women (among other Route 66 memorabilia), which made us think maybe this hotel wasn't aiming at families.

    Ya figure a hotel next to the freeway in Needles, CA would be kinda blah. Well, this hotel proved otherwise. It was a pleasure. Staff were welcoming and extremely pleasant and the room was clean and comfortable. Dining at the restaurant steps away next door, was a treat!

    « Very friendly staff and a great place to stop »

    We arrived to very welcoming staff who went out of their way to give us a nice ground floor room wit parking right outside of the door for us. The room was clean, tidy comfortable with all you need for the night stay we had there. ?Complimentary Breakfast ?Microwave ?Refrigerator ?Hairdryer ?Coffee/tea maker. WE loved the fact that it had guest laundry facility at $1.00 as we had been on the road for 10 days and need to freshen up some of our clothes. The evening meal in Juicy's next door was nice and no high prices on the menu. The breakfast was plentiful and pleasant staff there to help also next door I Juicy's. The only down side was the walk from the hotel to Juicy's for your meals was a bit awkward as it slopes down to the road from the hotel then up to Juicys. The pavement is all broken up so you have to mind your step and with a wheelchair it can be a bit of a danger to both the chair user and the carer. So be mindful of this if you want to stay here and have a wheelchair user.

    « Christmas in Needles »

    I was moving cross country from Austin to San Jose. I stopped at the Colorado River Inn on Christmas Eve with my 8 month old Golden Retriever. We were both a bit travel weary but were warmly greeted by the staff and family at this really cool spot. I cannot say enough about how well we were welcomed. It did not take me long to book an additional day, equals Christmas, for a much needed rest. The little dog park is over the top cool, and Juicy's Restaurant also welcomed the furry one with open arms. I will be sure to stay there again, and suggest you do the same if in the area! Top Notch!

    « Comfortable, spacious accomodation »

    We stopped at this motel overnight, enroute to the Grand Canyon. After a long day driving, we found it to be clean, comfortable and spacious. We were warmly greeted by a young man who was quick to check us in and was very clear with explanations. We literally fell into our beds and woke up early to head through the gate to Juicy's diner. The breakfast is a choice of three options: A). Scrambled eggs with diced ham, hash brown, breakfast biscuit & beverage B). Cereal or oatmeal and beverage C). Yoghurt, granola, fresh fruit & beverage. Between the five of us, all of the three options were ordered and all were great. The service was fantastic so we left a small tip. Very happy with our accomodation and breakfast.

    « First Class with Reasonable Rates »

    Our room had recently been renovated. The headboard was attractive and the color scheme is fresh. The lauded deep tub made it difficult for me to get out without help. Another grab bar would help. The outside pool was closed. Loved the Christmas decorations and appreciated the friendly staff. You are given 3 choices for breakfast at the place across the parking lot. If you pick something else, then you get a discount instead.

    « Nicest Place in Needles, CA! »

    A very comfortable stay on our long-haul journey. The manager was very friendly and called the room to make sure everything was okay after we got settled in. No breakfast service, but you get a voucher at the good diner next door. We were in a hurry so we skipped it, but very convenient on and off the freeway. For those travelers who love Route 66, this would be the place to stay!

    « Quirky, cool Needles motel »

    There's something quirky and cool about the River Inn in Needles, a mellow Route 66 vibe and the cafe attached to the motel makes the stop over worth it especially. Once I left my backpack in at the cafe and didn't realize it until I was back in LA. They mailed it safe and intact the next day, for free! I love the sense of peace and being away from daily life when I stay at this motel. I love the lobby, the pool, the surrounding desert hillsides. Great place.

    « Dog friendly »

    When I am looking for a dog friendly place to stay I look thru the reviews of the hotels on TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor has always been accurate with reviews. I can always count on best western for a good experience, good nite sleep,to make the family ready for the next day. Breakfast is a plus. It eliminates you driving around looking for a place to eat.

    « Needles and thr trains »

    It was an ok place, with a marginal restaurant featuring trains going by all night. Needles was the only place around so we stayed their but probably will not ever end up their again. Don't get on the back side of the hotel by the tracks!

    this is a great place to stay with perfect accommodations and good meals without having to leave the property. They have a great little dog park even for our pet. There is easy on/off access to the freeway and very convenient.

    « Over Night Stay With our Large Horse trailer and colt on board. »

    We delivered a colt to a buyer in Chino Valley, Arizona. We have a very large trailer (40 foot) most of it horse area, so we opened it up for him as a large stall and needed a place to stay where we could be close enough to the trailer to check on him. The staff at this Best Western directed us to a well light truck parking area adjacent to the fence of the property. In addition, they moved our room reservation to a room where we could just look out the window or go to the balcony to check on the trailer. In addition, they said the local police would make regular trips through that area. As we were locking down the trailer and getting ready to go back to the room, A Sheriff's unit drove by and waved. I don't know if the staff called or not, but, we definitely slept better knowing where we were placed. As to the rooms, very clean and comfortable, a nd as I said, great front desk staff! One was also a horse owner in the past. Top it off with the Wagon Wheel restaurant right across the street, it was a good night and a great start to the day.

    « tired room »

    Our room was supposed to be a suite. It was simply a room with a bar fridge & microwave oven. Very disappointed. Very small room. Very pricey. Very much in need of real pillows. The size was like a small sofa cushion. Stay again...absolutely not. The 2 stars are for the staff, Very friendly!

    « Great value for the price »

    It seems that many motels in the Needles, CA area rate very low for a number of reasons. The Best Western was the highest rated in the area and after staying there I can see why. The staff was very friendly and engaging and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. When we travel back to that area next year, we know exactly where we will be staying!

    This Best Western hotel was an excellent choice for us. We were following the Route 66 and it was in the right place with dinner and breakfast very close by. Our stay was most enjoyable and the staff was helpful and friendly.

    « Friendly staff, clean room, complimentary wifi and a printer in lobby. »

    I arrived late at night on a business trip. The two front desk employees, one a manager and one a trainee, were warm and friendly, professional, and extremely helpful. This is a clean, comfortable property and I would recommend it for a business stay. Breakfast next door also included, great!

    « A tidy and comfortable hotel, ideal for touring Mojave »

    We stayed 3 nights in October. An ideal base for touring the Mojave Desert and into Arizona. Very comfortable room. At first we were concerned about the vicinity of the railway. Not a problem, we didn't hear a thing!. Great Diner next door with discounts from Best Western. Ideal for a great breakfast and evening meal.

    « A Great Night in Needles »

    The Best Western Colorado Inn was a great stop on my travels from California back to Tennessee. The front desk staff was great, there was loads of parking and the room was older but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was offered at the restaurant next door but because of schedule I didn't have time to take them up on their offer but it would have been hot and fresh. The pool area looked nice and refreshing but I didn't have time to swim, only to look.

    « Good place to stop »

    Very clean, quite, easy to get to. Good place to stop on way to Grand Canyon, Phoenix, or Sedona, and Flagstaff. Breakfast right next door at cafe called Jucy's. Friendly staff. They called to make sure everything was to our liking.

    « Nice Stopover Motel »

    We stayed one night to break up the driving of an eight hour trip. The front desk help was very nice and efficient. The room was lovely and clean. Hearing the trains at night is the only reason I didn't give the motel 5 stars. The breakfast at the adjoining restaurant was very good. We really liked having the choice of a really hot breakfast, rather than the lukewarm food that you usually get in a hotel buffet.

    Good location in Needles. A very comfortable and charming place to stay. Being right next door to a nice restaurant was an unexpected bonus. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family.

    Stopped for just one night. Nice and clean room, comfy beds and extremely helpfull staff. The pool area was the best we have seen so far. Especially when it is dark and the fireplaces are lit. Breakfast could have been with more options.

    « Best place in Needles, CA »

    Looked at several hotels/motels in Needles, CA and all but this one did not look inviting or as though they were thriving. This hotel grounds, the building and the lobby clearly indicated that this location was doing well and well maintained with high standards. The room was clean and comfortable, the WiFi worked well, the bath was well lit and the bed was comfortable. They offer a complimentary breakfast and an adjacent restaurant that was tasty and well presented. For many travelers, Needles, CA is a pass through place where most guests stop for one night. This hotel and the next door restaurant provide a comfortable and pleasant stay.

    « Clean, Quiet, Friendly »

    This new motel in the Mojave Desert is right off Interstate 40 on the outskirts of town for a good night's sleep. It's across the street from the good old-time favorite Wagon Wheel steakhouse and Juicy's River Cafe for a hearty Western breakfast.

    After doing Route 66 all day, we were looking for a clean comfortable room and that is exactly what we found. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. Nothing fancy here, just a nice place to spend the night.

    « Fantastic »

    We arrived here after a long drive from San Francisco looking for a room. We were met by Keith who managed to get us the last available room that night. Could have hugged him I was so tired. The room was fantastic. Very spacious and comfortable. The hotel has an arrangement with Juicy"s River Cafe across the way, where you can have free breakfast and discount on dinner. Thanks to Keith an Rich for making our stay memorable for all the right reasons. ?

    « It's a bed. That's about it. »

    A basic bed. Wifi didn't work in the evening. I finally got on in the morning. They don't have breakfast at the hotel, which is a major reason I stay at Best Westerns. Instead, they had a voucher for the restaurant next door, where you could get a choice of two very simple breakfasts that were adequate, but not as good as breakfast at other Best Westerns (waffles, mmmmm). Parking was good. There are a few fast food places around. You won't go hungry, but it's kind of like a truck-stop place.

    The rooms are nice and clean. They have a beautiful outside pool area. The air conditioning kept the room cool, even though it was 108 degrees when we checked in! The also have a nice Route 66 mural in vending area.

    Loved the staff, the room, the breakfast, and especially the pool. It was cool, and lots of seating and tables and during the evening well lit. It was easy to find off the highway and close enough to other amenities.

    « One of the nicest Best Western's we've stayed in, very nice »

    Really nice hotel with a beautiful pool area including outdoor fire places. So very nice. The rooms were very nicely decorated, quiet and comfortable. Everything was exceptionally clean. Free popcorn in the lobby was a nice little treat! The hotel is well located, and the on site restaurant was very good, which is also where you can order a free hot breakfast that is served to you rather than buffet style. We will definitely return on a future trip.

    « Family stay with pets »

    Nice hotel, very busy, parking could be an issue. A family stay over with kids. Had pets with us, charge extra for them. Pet area is fenced in and has bags available for clean up, nice feature. Very hot during our stay, air conditioning took a bit to cool the room. Nice pool area after a long day. Breakfast next door offer a good selection if you want to pay extra for it. Was disappointed with the shampoo, conditioner etc. no small bottles only a dispenser in the shower area, a little weird. In room mini fridge was nice to have for ice chest stuff over night. Overall no major issues with our stay.
