    Sub-par for a Best Western

    Considering the few motels in Needles, this was okay for overnight, but pricey considering the noisy location and basic room. Good—Clean, everything in working order, good staff. Not so good- - Small bathroom, room needs updating, Had trouble locating on GPS, No restaurants nearby. Oh, and it is nowhere near the river!

    Room 126

    Good size Room. Two queen beds. Old interior, but fresh look - well maintaned. Tv, Coffeee station, Microwave and fridge. The Room does not have a safe. The AC/heater makes a bit noise. There are trains passing by frequent and noise can be heard. Nice pool and hot tub. Good Staff. The Breakfast is next door at a restaurant - you get a coupon.

    Most importantly it’s clean. Nothing fancy. For the money I would expect a nicer place. But not much to choose from here. Beds were just OK. Slept on much worse. The coffee was horrible. And no Dunkin anywhere close

    This hotel looks good on the outside but the rooms are very dated. There is a parking lot out back that trucks come and go and park there for the night with there trucks running. And if that’s not bad enough, there is a train track that runs right next to it.

    Last Minute Stay: Great Breakfast

    Nice last minute stay at this Best Western due to a crazy winter storm. Staff was friendly and room was clean and what you’d expect from an older motel style property. Best part, breakfast was handled by the amazing Giggling Cactus diner next door. Great service and made to order breakfast. Felt bad I didn’t have to pay for it!
