Just outside Death Valley to the South the town of Ridgecrest boasts several cheap hotel and motel options. From Best Western at the expensive end of the scale and with EconoLodge and America’s Best Value Inn being at the opposite end of this scale.
We selected EconoLodge for our stay in Ridgecrest as it served its purpose if being a place to stay for one night for then to move on early the next day. We paid $69 including internet and a well-equipped continental breakfast. That’s less than half price of Best Western a mile down the street. The room was from another era and I’m sure they loved it back then. The thick, brown wall-to-wall carpet makes it a little warmer in this desert motel. The warm water in the toilet bowl didn’t cool anything down, either. We were glad the noisy aircondition unit actually worked – the room went from desert heat to arctic cold in a matter of minutes.
Despite these few flaws and the free internet being out of order we actually thought EconoLodge was worth every one of the 69 dollars we spent for this one night stay.
