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.

Just a one night stay, but a swim, a spa and use of the guest laundry made it very worthwhile. Room was clean and quiet and breakfast, while typical of budget hotels was plentiful, fresh and filling. Friendly staff at check in just added to the stay. The pool is way better than the average hotel pool, but please watch... More

This hotel is up to usual standards for Best Western. Small but very clean room with decent amenities. Bathroom was very cramped. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is convenient to stores and to a number of restaurant options. Overall a good affordable rest stop.

Usual standard of rooms for this chain no problems with parking or cleaning. We love the US as the people as so friendly and welcoming, the older lady who checked us in was not welcoming or friendly at all unlike the other 2 receptionists I dealt with, we treated as a nuisance.
