The Westward Motel is the perfect place to get away from it all, and get inspired. Ideal for a writer's retreat or any artist in need of a change of pace, a quiet place, that's full of beauty. Each room is unique and the attention to detail is astonishing. You can tell that very stick of furniture, every painting on...

As a foreign correspondent for half a century I've stayed in lots of places, and I can't think of one to match the Westward Motel for quirky character,a genuine welcome, fine little touches. I was stunned that the preceding reviewer gave it only three stars after a fairly good description of some of its high points. I'd give it 10....

Stayed for 2 nights at Xmas. A quirky little property, with plenty of interesting knick knacks spread throughout. You have to pay cash. Reservations by phone only. An attraction for us was the great reviews here on Trip Advisor, as well as facilities which included a communal kitchen area and outdoor gas grill. We were there on xmas day itself,...

I can't say enough positive things about this little jewel in the middle of nowhere. It was one of the highlights of our trip from NE to CA. It's on the southern branch of Route 66, old Route 60, and has been restored to that historical charm with all of the modern amenities. With only 4 rooms you'll be gifted...

Stopped in Salome for one night while going from Page to LA. Very clean, friendly and cosy place...and easy to find. Randy will welcome you. Just beware of the one freight train that crosses the town at midnight! ...and can't restrain from blowing its horn. It can be surprising.

This place is like stepping back into the 1950s--except now you get good A/C and good wifi. Very cute and quaint. And exceptionally clean. Good bed. Quiet. Seems very safe. A Four unit motel on a side street. How quirky is that.

I would travel back to Arizona JUST to spend the night again at this hotel. It is hands down, the best hotel I have ever been to! While traveling along from Holbrook to Joshua Tree my mom and I had had just about enough driving. I had hopped on tripadvisor looking for a hotel in the area and stumbled over...

Quaint, clean, homy, quiet. Beds are great. Easy going and laid back. Loved the cantina...it was like going to the kitchen at home. Loved looking at all of roadie badges from many cool concerts. Great place to rest after a long day of wheelin.

We were travelling from San Diego to the Grand Canyon and needed to break our journey. We came across the Westward Hotel on TripAdvisor and the place lived up to the reviews. Randy was very welcoming and a great character - I bet he could write a book about all the rock tours he was a roadie on - you...
