Best Western Space Age Lodge

We ended up in Gila Bend after opting out of the expensive options in Phoenix on our way to San Diego. We used our satellite navigation to highlight our accommodation options and were happy to find a Best Western in the middle of nowhere as is was getting dark and late. I am not sure what to make of the whole space theme but it was novel and well characterised through out the venue. Our room was clean comfortable and well appointed with complimentary toiletries, blow dryer, ironing board etc. We were also welcomed by a couple of local cats who I thought were rather cute. We knew we were on a major road and rail line but it didn't really interfere with our comfort. Lorraine in reception was pleasant and called once we were in our room to make sure we were comfortable. I did think it was slightly expensive in comparison to some of the inner city properties we have stayed in in the past few days @$119.99 plus taxes. It's an older style property with not a lot of additional facilities other than breakfast, but we had limited choice and stayed anyway. This motel is a good clean honest venue if you find yourself in this neck of the woods.

We’ve stayed here many times. We like to park right outside the room. The older updates to the rooms are starting to show some wear but it is clean and comfortable. The air conditioning unit kept our winter room warm. It runs constantly so no dealing with the on and off noise all night. Big screen tv, refrigerator, table, chairs. Sink outside shower area. Non working bathroom fan. They have the best free breakfast in a real restaurant with real eggs starting at 5am so you can get an early start on your next long day. Next to train tracks but the noise is muffled and has never been a bother to us.

Older motel that has been refurbished. By far, considering it's age, the cleanest motel we have ever stayed at. Great staff. There is a restaurant attached. Very clean. Limited menu, but very filling and great tasting food.

Great stop between Flagstaff and San Diego. Good food on location with complementary fresh cooked breakfast. Older vintage motel with recent remodeling. The best amenity is ALL the VERY hot water a family requires--a rare occurrence these days with motels lowering their water temperatures to luke-warm. We had a good night sleep on a firm mattress.

What a nice surprise! We wanted to stay here on a trip from California to Texas because I'm a "space freak", and Space Age Lodge didn't disappoint. It's fun, it's quirky, and it's CLEAN. I mean, REALLY clean. The gentle sounds of trains passing by on the tracks behind our room throughout the night were actually sort of atmospheric; and from our room, we didn't hear any traffic noise at all. Loved the sparkly paint everywhere and the photos of space exploration in the room. Great restaurant for dinner across the street (Little Italy) and a FANTASTC FREE breakfast at the Space Age Restaurant. The only complaint I would have is that the TV had limited channels and poor picture quality. But we'll stay here again. Recommended!

This hotel is a remodeled old motel from the 60's. The Space Age theme is kind of cute and the room was clean and comfortable, but the noise from the train passing right behind the building, in addition to traffic noise from the main thoroughfare street out front, was not conducive to a good night's rest. I thought it was a little expensive (even with a BW Rewards discount) for the quality and experience.

Beaut modernist motel for aspiring Jetsons in the desert. Rooms are spacious and the shower was good. The interiors were clean and would only be better if they matched the retro exterior. The pool didn't look too inviting though, but maybe it was the wrong time of year. Overall, a good stay

Good clean motel with interesting decor. Feel comfortable booking here. There's a cute cat that wanders around. You can hear the trains that go by but I like that. You can also hear trucks go by faintly but again, nothing bad. Enjoy.

This Best Western was a surprisingly quirky little motel compared to the usual stodgy monoliths. But after the adorable space ship sign out front and the mural on the front lobby ceiling, the room interior was all Best Western quality. Very clean, well-furnished, comfy bed, for an excellent price. Cheery staff, both late-night and morning. The included breakfast was at the adjoining restaurant. About five options—what you’d get at a normal continental breakfast: pancakes, eggs, oatmeal, etc and a beverage. So, different, and no seconds, which in my case is a good thing! A lovely quick overnight stay that I’d highly recommend if you’re just pulling off the highway as we were.

My wife and I and our two dogs stayed here one night on our way to Tombstone. Gila Bend is a very small town with only 3 motels. We chose this one because it had excellent reviews (and rightly so). The room was very nice and the bed was quite comfortable. Our refrigerator stopped working and in one quick call to the lobby, another one was on its way. Their customer service was excellent. The room also came with a free breakfast. Our stay was a happy one. There attitude is very pet friendly, unfortunately there was no grassy area for pets. Other than that, it was a relaxing stay.
