I was with my wife and two friends here and it was perfect. Very clean and quite, cheap and very friendly. The motel is kindly managed by a lovely family that also took care of our car during our 4days bike tour.

We were happily surprised to find that this motel was very clean, comfortable, and great for a night's stop on our road trip up Scenic Route 395. Our room slept 5, and it was comfortable enough for us, a family raveling on a budget.

The 3 things I look for in a room. OK, so it's not much to look at, but to me this place was an oasis in the desert. I stayed here on 2 separate occasions 2 weeks ago. Yea, I came back even a 2nd time. The room has a fridge, microwave, desk, chair and flat screen TV. A shower,... More

Stayed for one night on my way back from Death Valley. Quite basic, but reasonably comfortable and slept well. Bed linen clean and good supply of hot water. Parking directly outside room. There is a small cafe adjoining, which I guess is ok for a quick breakfast, albeit I preferred to walk to Denny's despite being almost mile distant. Little... More

We came there in Winter (dec. 29 - about 43°F outside) and arrived in a very cold room. Heather is performed by the air-conditionner unit which is not efficient. It took about 30 min to start blowing almost hot air. It never become sufficient to stay comfortably. Heather is very noisy and thus must be stopped at night. Rooms near... More

I've stayed at the Ridgecrest Budget Inn on several occasions. It is a basic no-frills motel, and priced accordingly. The closest thing to a problem I ever experienced was on a chilly afternoon with a heat exchanger that appeared not to be working. The person at the desk assured me it would be fine if I gave it a few... More

Heater barely worked, very cold room in winter. Receptionist nice but said the heater would get warmer later which it didn't. Used the hair drier to heat room in the end! Very thin blanket too so slept in clothes. Apart from that ok and wifi works.

The room was functional and it did have a fridge, which I required for my stay. When I got there, they couldn't find my prepaid reservation. Turned out "someone" put it in the wrong place. I told them the other person in my party (second room) wouldn't be there and they would charge the one night and refund the other,... More

Like another reviewer said, this place is a decent place to stay for one night. Although the place wasn't dirty, the room itself was very small and cramped. There was not much space to move in around. Then again, I only stayed on the first floor and not the second and I think there are larger rooms (for a steeper... More

We had to stay one night in Ridgecrest and choose the Budget Inn for our stay. The location of this motel is pretty good. Shopping centers and restaurants are in walking distance. The rooms are tiny, but clean and okay equipped. Staff was very friendly.
