“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

My wife and I regularly stay at Best Western hotels because they are clean, convenient, and always reasonably priced. During our most recent stay, the lady checked us in upgraded our room from a queen to a king and also moved us downstairs, at no extra charge. We appreciated this a lot since my wife was pregnant at the time.

This hotel looks decent, with a nice effort in the room decoration which makes them feel welcoming. However, it's obviously not run by someone who cares...
Our shower handle appeared to be broken, stuck to the highest temperature and impossible to turn towards cold. The water was BURNING hot. We called the front desk, who said that they would TRY to send someone to fix it. I don't know how much they tried, but more than an hour later, nobody had showed up and we had to leave, without being able to take a shower. We wanted to hit the road early that morning, but with the wait, we didn't leave until almost 10am.
I'm not too demanding when it comes to a hotel but there are 2 things I expect to be able to do: SLEEP and SHOWER. I don't think that's too much to ask.
On top of that, the breakfast room was very dirty, nobody being there to clean up the tables after guests were done. Most tables were covered with bread crumbs and scrambled eggs pieces. Gross.

All in all I don't recommend this hotel, since my experience was very poor!

Enroute to Yosemite National Park, and after a long drive from Vegas, we pulled into this great little find. Three people, (one couple) and two large double beds. Free WIFI, laundry, pool (clean with extra towels) jacquizzi, lots of parking. The number one exciting moment for my mother was having a bathroom which door opened to allow someone to use the toilet/shower at the same time as someone using the rest of the bathroom.
Friendly staff, and a great clean, happy family environment. Highly recommended!

We were touring and just pulled in on the off chance of a vacancy. The bedroom was really good with 2 double beds, free WiFi, lovely bath in the spacious bathroom and lots of toiletries.The room was very fresh and modern and really clean. The staff were lovely and very helpful. There is a pool and Jacuzzi which are open until 10pm. Breakfast was included at no extra cost and was sausages, waffles, eggs etc served buffet style, delicious. Really nice hotel at a low cost price, totally recommend staying here.

We were traveling home from a funeral and an assisted living placement for my mother. The Best Western Plus at Ridgecrest was a wonderful respite from all of the stress of our trip. The pool and spa were wonderful, the room was clean & bright. The breakfast was just what we wanted; a waffle and orange for me and cereal and yogurt for my husband. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

I rate this motel in comparison to other motels that charge similar (reasonable) rates. Motel was very clean. Room was nicer than similar motels (eg cove molding on ceilings). Bedding was great. Everything worked well and room was well maintained. Staff was very friendly. We will be back! Try "The Grape Leaf" restaurant, which has great food!
