“Good Value Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a very nice motel for the price. The room was clean and the bed comfy. Not many travelers there so it was very quiet. The lady said coffee and muffins would be served at 8 AM. That seems a bit late but, as I was pulling out at 7:30 the next day, the owner came out to my car and asked if I would like coffee. I had already went to Starbucks so I was good but thanked him.

We selected the hotel "Americas Best Value Inn & Suites" in Ridgecrest because it was conveniently located in our way to the Death Valey. It is easy to find it.
The room was rather large with two queen bed and a fridge but nothing else : no hair dryer, no clock, no microwave, no coffee pot. The room was clean enough.
The breakfast was really nothing (two small muffins). Fortunately there is a Denny's restaurant on the other side of the road.
The price was not so high, but too high - compared to the other hotels we were in during our stay in California - for what we got.

The room is okay and the bathroom is clean. It is big enough for us to stay for one night. The wifi is okay, not too slow. Although there is no breakfast, they provide waffles and hot coffee in the morning. The price is cheap.

I am not sure why they call themselves, "America's Best Value.'

Although, I did not stay, I was able to see a room. It is very tiny and you can get a much larger room up at the Best Western for just about the same price. They are actually one of the most expensive motels in town.

Room Tip: Go to Best Western. Almost same price. Larger rooms and free hot breakkfast.

In general, the room was clean, well maintained, looks like the interiors were recently remodeled. We could just park in front of the our rooms door and unload all our luggage. It also came with a mini refrigerator and a flat screen TV. The hotel was quiet and peaceful. We had stayed there on our way back to Bay Area from Death Valley National Park.

The room can be a little crampy with 2 queen beds in it, just a small compromise for the price you pay. The shower had a water saver fitted on it because of which the water was scanty. You have to stand below it a good deal of time to get wet :-(. That is the only complaint I had. The tub had some dirty like spots in it, although it did not seem like dirt.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a budget friendly family traveller.

If you find yourself having to stay a night it Ridgecrest, which I don't see much reason to go there then this is a good basic motel. Pretty cheap, kindof clean and average. The rooms are tiny, but do have tv and bathroom is good!

We stayed in ABVI in different US cities and comparison to them this one is nothing. The room was clean but the bathroom was very old. No microwave, no breakfast. The location is close to Death Valley but unfortunately we had a Detour due to rode closure in 178
