Not a bad hotel. Clearly a remodeled, older building. Cleaned up nice. Room had all the goodies, but was very small. Feels like they crammed them full of stuff to meet the Best Western "Plus" requirements. Clean facility, friendly, helpful staff. I'd stay here again for business travel, but the rooms are too small for family travel.

Tina at the front desk was super! she explained the beetle problem patiently, with all great remedies. she probably is the reason most people stayed--and will stay again. Property is nice, clean, pleasant. Restaurant next door is really good--hamburgers and much more!

Second stay here. As with the first stay, it was good. The breakfast choices are many....scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, boiled eggs, pastries and muffins, waffles. Had a peaceful sleep.

We arrived at the hotel late and were just going to get some sleep while on a road trip. I just wanted a clean room with a comfy bed to get some shut-eye. The woman at the front counter was very friendly and spent a lot of time explaining the Boxelder infestation. She even gave me the option to back... More

Nice staff, room was certainly ok for the price. Breakfast was ok. There was a seasonal problem with some bugs but this was clearly stated upon checkin. The kids appreciated a quick dip in the pool in the morning before leaving.

If you need a per diem room in Ridgecrest, CA, and Hilton/Marriott won't honor that rate, this is a very suitable compromise. It's not fancy, but a good hotel with good staff. The rooms are actually pretty nice inside as well.

Stayed here for business, one night. second visit in 6 months. Hotel offers consistent, reasonable accommodations, breakfast and internet. did not shop against other local hotels so cannot comment on price, but at $ 100 an ok value. Night clerk was very helpful and check out smooth and quick.

Everything we needed for a one night stay during our road trip. Ample parking, good WiFi, lots of retail in the neighbourhood. Also this inn has a good pool considering the size of the hotel. Room was small it had all we needed and was clean.

This is the place to stay when visiting Ridgecrest. Clean, smell-free rooms, with great showers. The breakfast is decent, and the beds are very comfortable. A pool is available for cooling off int he desert heat. I highly recommend this place.
