On our way to Death Valley we needed a place to crash, Ridgecrest was the only option, but it's still a over 2 hour drive to the park! For just having a bed, shower and a tv with some channels you are ok here. But nothing fancy. No breakfast and wifi included. The doors and walls are really thin. The... More

Stayed here twice before when making trips to Ridgecrest. Returned here now for a third time of a one night stay because of good senior AARP pricing and mostly clean/quiet conditions. All was pretty much OK, normal average Motel 6, we have been to better properties and worst in their chain. There was a black glue on the dresser top,... More

I recently stayed at the Ridgecrest Motel 6 again. I have stayed at this motel three times before. This motel is a good, solid branch of Motel 6. Clean, nice service, and a below-average price (33.99/night). I stayed in room 236 this time - no complaints. The water pressure in the shower was awesome. Squeaky clean.

First option was Super 8, but they were full and this Motel 6 was their next option next door. The clerk was very friendly and helpful, he got us a room at ground level and with the car next to it. In the evening, we needed to do laundry, which was next to the counter and one of the machines... More

Don't expect much if you're watching your pocketbook, but they are pet friendly. Always someone at the desk. Some rooms better than others. Good resting stop if you search for a discount. Rooms closer to pool are nicer.

The room I first looked at was a non smoking room of course the room smelled like cigarettes and pee. The top sheet had stains on them and we only had a pillow case on one pillow. I went to the front desk and asked them for another room. The next room had nats all over the bathroom and the... More

The names says almost everything, except the pool looked like a cloudy swamp with trash cans over flowing. Pick some where else

We got town at 9 after a hot day on Death Valley just looking for a place to shower, do laundry and sleep. This fit the bill and the pocketbook. Staff was friendly and room was ok. And I gotta laundry done!

This was like staying in a bug infested dog-house. Checked in lady was nice, went to room, nats everywhere. Other nice front desk girl changed our room to another non-smoking room, just to find it was smoked out. I had an asthma attack, and there were nats in that room too. Changed straight to another room, smelled better but like... More

Motel 6 means to me and to millions of travellers no frills, clean and correctly priced accomodations.For these reasons and because it was properly located and it offered a swimming pool I opted for the Motel 6 in Ridgecrest, CA. Since a few days before I had had a negative experience at a motel of the same chain I asked... More
