The reception lady was friendly which boded well, but the rooms were very small. Wifi intermittent and most important of all if you're travelling - water was nowhere near hot enough for a shower. Starbucks across the road and Ale's was good for evening meal

We were just passing through Ridgecrest so decided to stay at a really inexpensive place. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: This place was nice and clean, even the shower. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room, although not needed for a one night stay. The Manager Danny was nice and very apologetic when the credit card... More

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.
