A typical Best Western, perfectly adequate EXCEPT: the weather in July was way over 100° and we needed A/C at night. 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

This Best West is a good value. It is an older hotel and the price is right. Traveling in this area in the summer for business is unpleasant because of the extreme heat. My one complaint is the air conditioner is under the window and the cool air is trapped under the drape. The room doesn't get as cool as... More

The friendliest staff at a hotel that I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I wish i could remember their names but the lady working nights on 7-3-14 actually thanked us for being Gold Elite members. She was very enthusiastic and owned her work.

Very good midway stop between Scottsdale, AZ and Lake Tahoe. Hotel is clean, (though could be updated a bit) staff is very helpful, breakfast is adequate. Pool area woks for a little R&R. Many choices for dinner in Ridgecrest area. There is no elevator, so if you have luggage, best to request first floor room.

If you're looking for good, clean accommodations at an affordable price, this is a good choice. One complaint: the TV remote didn't work very well, but that is likely an issie with the brand of remote, Clean Remote.

After spending the day in Death Valley, we were ready to rest. Manager on duty was very helpful and made us feel welcome. The hot tub was open late and so I actually got a chance to use it. Usually by the time we roll in for the night, pools are already closed.

My staff and I send our apology. We have since change our policy on where they are allowed to take there breaks. Our main Breakfast attendant can only remember one instance when she did not go directly to wash her hands. She could smell a waffle burning when she came into the breakfast area.
