We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. Everything was as it should be, plus the staff went out of their way to be helpful with questions regarding the local area as well as nearby travel destinations. The breakfast was up to standard, and was replenished promptly. They serve brewed coffee, which is important to us (as opposed... More

Great hotel for good price, nice staff, working internet connection and great location. Swimming pool, jacuzzi and gym. Only a few minutes to a good restaurant. Breakfast was good for US ;-). I can recommend this stay to everyone traveling around.

Everything from the outstanding staff to the comfortable sheets made it a delightful evening! The grounds and pool area were very, very well maintained and the lobby/breakfast rooms felt so clean! Very nice selection for breakfast and having a paper to read was a nice touch.

Very nice Best Western in Ridgecrest. A lot of effort is put into breakfast and the staff is very friendly. The pool area is very nice too. This hotel is also in a good location in town and not far from restaurants in the area.

One of many hotels in Ridgecrest main street; Looks like a former motel, nice swimming pool and very friendly staff. Clean. Good starting point for tours in the area, Red Rock Canyon, and some ghost towns, on way to/from Death Valley

We received no discount for any of our memberships like AAA, military. Press, etc. The shower in room 217... More

If you're looking for a clean simple room, this will be fine. The room did seem a bit dated to me. There was no parking when I arrived and I parked on the street about a block away. I also hate rooms with doors to an exterior catwalk. Will not stay again but it's fine for the average traveler
