This place was nice. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. Very sweet and professional. Our room was nice and clean. Our beds were comfortable and even though it was close to the road we didn't hear the traffic. Great place to stay! :-)

I've stayed in Ridgecrest many times over the past 13 years. It was great to see the improvements at this Best Western this time. The room I stayed in was a small king room. This room could've joined with the room next door, this seemed to make the walls somewhat thin between the rooms, but it was still bearable. This... More

We overnighted between SF and Death Valley, and stayed at this hotel recently. It was very well maintained and very comfortable, and if passing through again, would choose it again. Breakfast was adequate, if the somewhat standard motel buffet style. Only negative is that carparking can be squeezed when full, although parking in the street is not a problem. Staff... More

Room was okay - bathroom was a little odd, though. The shower was stuck on a massage setting and it took some experimentation to figure out how to turn the water off. Service was friendly and breakfast was fine. It was easy to hear what was happening out in the parking lot (had a room on the ground floor) but... More

Got a good night's sleep and a great breakfast the next morning. Plan to come again and stay at the same place on the next trip. Enjoyed the accommodations. friendly employees and great service. Cleanliness is a chief concern for me and the West Bestern China Lake is tops in Ridgecrest.

We passed Ridgecrest visiting the parks and found this a perfect place for a stopover. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Get a room upstairs to avoid noise of people walking above you. Shower is lukewarm at best, but OK for a diehard.
