I stayed here for 2 nights. The first night was somewhat comfortable. (I use the word comfortable lightly). The second night after waking up I found about 30 red whelps all over my arms and face. I quickly realized this was a bed bug issue. I immediately notified the front desk of the issue and was told "I'm sorry, thanks... More

Clean and comfortable. No microwave like most motels and could not get water in taps to run cold but no issues other than that. Pool was clean too. Nothing special but a lot nicer and newer than some of the motels we've stayed in across America. Good value for money.

Small Motel near the city center. Restaurants nearby. We just stayed there for 1 night on our trip to Las Vegas. Friendly front staff. Rooms are not that new, but ok. The bathroom is clean and renovated. Enough for 1 night, but not more.

I don't expect much at this price point but we stayed for 5 minutes and then left. Where do you start? Lumpy bed, sign on the pool gate stating"don't use the pool if you have active diarrhea", dirt and smells. This was worse than $1/night hostels that I stayed in as a Peace Corps volunteer. Why a national chain allows... More

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.
