This place is getting tired. The carpets are totally worn out, you can see they used to have a pattern on them, but only at the edges now because it's worn off the rest. The carpets are also sticky, they apparently are never shampooed, only vacuumed. The electrical outlets are all worn out so you can't plug in your cell... More

The air conditioning in my first room didn't work (temperature outside was 100+), terrible TV reception, WiFi kept dropping my connection, coffee wasn't ready when advertise. Did I mention the bugs? Very, very disappointing.

The room was covered in boxwood beetle bugs, both dead and alive. While I understand there was an infestation in Ridgecrest, I would think the cleaning staff would be sure to vacuum at least the dead ones and attempt to get rid of the live ones. I told the office staff and they were nice, but just repeated that there... More

Very friendly staff, and a very clean and nice room. It was very quiet at night as well. Good cable tv, wifi connection, and air conditioning. Good family style restaurant less than a block away. Parking was convenient. Wifi is free with AARP.

Room was fine, decor a little cheesy from the 80s, but air conditioning, clean beds. Just soap in the bath and not enough towels, but they gave us more. Wifi is $3, we got a fridge for $3 more. Microwave in the lobby. Just coffee in the morning. Pool is unheated, but nice when we visited in June at 107... More

The hotel was clean and furnished well enough for the price but the central air conditioning seemed old and ineffective in the desert heat. The room was so hot, even by midnight, as to make it almost impossible to sleep. The high that day was in the low 90's and it can get much hotter then that in Ridgecrest. This... More

The room is small but comfortable. We wanted to save money more than have a big room and all the comforts. Only complaint is someone smokes near the air intake for the airconditioner. Every hour or so the room smells like smoke.

I have slept in many a Motel 6 around the USA and this was just another average one, not bad, not great. The price was right and Motel 6 usually never fails to let me down wherever I go. I found the front staff friendly and helpful with finding local businesses I needed to use. They gave me a room... More

Between the yellowish brown sheets, hair in the sheets and under the toilet seat I'm completely disgusted!! This was after being moved to another room which was a replica of the first. I think it's used hourly. I can't believe I allowed my kids to step foot in there! Had to find another motel at 2:30 am. Th smell was... More

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
