Best Western Space Age Lodge3.0 out of 5.0

The space age lodge's decor is best described as 60's kitsch. This makeover motel is quite adequate and comfortable for it's age. The restaurant is adequate, serving lots of grilled and fried delicacies. Fresh fruits and veggies are difficult to find in diners, right? The one downside is the railroad tracks that run directly behind the rooms.
I stayed at the Best Western space age hotel on a cross country trip from San Diego to Austin Texas. I arrived late in the evening tired and sleepy. The hotel staff was efficient and cheerful when I checked and I appreciate the speed that they checked me in and helped me with getting settled in.
The renovated space age lodge is a real treat for the fans of americana. The lady at the front desk was so friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. One drawback is noise - trains pass close by twice and hour through the night, and the aircon is not the quietest. I always travel with earplugs, so this was not a problem for me. Breakfast at the attached diner was good, but was busy on the Sunday morning we visited. Beware that they need a credit card here, or a $100 deposit.
Very clean. restaurant has great food. Lorraine at the desk went out of her way to get us towels and extra coffee. wonderful service. It was charming and fun place to stay. the pool was very nice. quaint little town.
Just had a great two days at the Space Age Lodge. Without a doubt, our room was the cleanest and more comfortable room we have had at a motel in a long time. Congratulations to the house keeping team. Our room was spotless, the bed was really comfortable, the bathroom sparkling and the in room facilities were ideal. The ground staff were constantly cleaning the carpark and the gardens were very well manicured. I loved the space age theme, even down to the spangly exterior paint! Staff were lovely, check-in and out was quick and easy. The WiFi connection was very good and we even enjoyed our meal and breakfasts at the adjoining restaurant ( despite some of the other reviewers less than satisfactory experiences.) This isn't the cheapest motel in town but the quality of the room made it worthwhile. I agree with other reviewers that the there is some noise from the road and nearby train track but, to be honest, it did not disturb my night's sleep at all.
We recently stayed at Space Age Lodge for the second time in little over a year. It was still as clean as ever and definitely a treat for a space age freak like me. An absolute bonus is the free breakfast in the Space Age Restaurant. It's a real, made-to-order, generously-portioned, sit-down meal. Don't miss the weird space alien themed items in the restaurant's gift area. The sunglasses alone are worth a selfie or two.
From the pictures on TA we knew it was going to be a quirky space themed place to stay but it was great. Really clean rooms, friendly staff and great decor if you like space and NASA themed rooms. The breakfast in the cafe attached to the hotel was fine. We had a comic moment when we asked for some lattes and was told they had coffee! Great stay overall.
Hotel is ok, but the food at the café next door is way below par. We could not eat the taco salad we purchased for dinner and decided not to try breakfast. Wait staff did not seem concerned when we explained there was hardly any meat on the salad and what was there was not like any beef I had ever had before. It also looked more like nachos than a salad. Definitely will never eat there again.
location is great other than the proximity to the train tracks. The restaurant is the best place to eat in Gila Bend. The beds are comfortable an the bathroom clean but the there were hardware items that were not clean like the lamp bases.
We had a couple disturbing surprises when we checked into our room. There was a dried wad of chewing gum on one of the bedside tables, and there were hair trimmings from shaving in the soap dish. The room seemed clean otherwise, but it made me wonder what other corners might have been cut if they missed fairly obvious surface dirt like this. The room was kind of noisy, too, especially the road traffic and the train behind the hotel. We had the complimentary breakfast at the attached Space Age Restaurant. The breakfast options were limited, but it was satisfactory.
