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.

The hotel is centrally locate. It is a bit dated, but clean hotel. The most important part to me is that the bedding was very new and includes duvee covers that are easily washed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was acceptable.

The Best Western was clean inside and out. One of the few hotels where my family of 5 can stay in one room. Free WiFi was a bit hit or miss, but breakfast was great. Nice size breakfast room to accommodate all the guests. Would stay here a again.

Friendly, quiet and clean. Couldn't ask for a better stay! The check-in went smoothly and the clerk was friendly and informative about local events. There were a lot of guests but the room was very quiet. Fridge, microwave and coffee pot for our convenience.Also a pool and hot tub. Great place!
