This was nice and clean place. Its not a Vegas hotel but what you expect of motel which has 40$ a night. You got bed and shower and it does the job. Would recommend it. Clean but outdated. Rooms doesn't have wi-fi

I stay at a lot of Motel 6s and this one is not updated but it is ok. It has a nice pool and is quiet because there are no freeways in Ridgecrest! This time I stayed on the more 'pet friendly' side of the complex and it did have a lingering smell. Pets are allowed.

We frequent motel 6's regularly because you know what to expect and they are clean, comfortable and affordable. But when you do frequent them regularly and internet book months in advance you would expect better than a second floor (walk up) road facing room. And why is there an ashtray in a 'non-smoking room'?. Our room was very functional bit... More

Stayed one night at the end of August. Pool was nice, great location in town, but now I'm covered of insect bites! After discovering an insect in my bed,I can tell they have bedbugs there... So go to another hotel to avoid an itchy situation.

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
