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

The problem: the fan would switch off, and on, and off,and I lay there, waiting for the inevitable shift in sound, never being able to sleep peacefully. The manager said there was a setting where the fan could be... More
