I cam here en route to the coast from Vegas via Death Valley. The check in process was interesting, it looks to be a family business. I had three people working on my checkin. I found a price on line, the fellow agreed to match it. But be aware, it's 12% tax in Ridgecrest. The $43 room become $48+. There... More

We had a chance to go back to Ridgecrest for Thanksgiving and we stayed at the Travel Inn for the first time. We were really pleased when comparing this to Motel 6. This property is actually behind the Motel 6 but the interior which includes a nice flat screen TV was better. There is free WiFi and also free breakfast.... More

Rooms were clean, but the place is in disrepair and lacks comfort, with the bonus of unfriendly staff. The bed was leveled with pieces of wood, the AC/heater was overly loud, walls are paper-thin, breakfast was so unappealing that it wasn't worth trying. The walkways of the 2nd level are uneven and unsafe. Overall, very low quality.

Had a nice one night stay over during a road trip through Ridgecrest. Staff were polite and welcoming and the room was clean and functional. Room was large and air conditioned. We didn't sample nearby restaurants Would recommend as a good budget stay

We spent one night here while attending the Ridgecrest Petroglyph Festival. The owners/managers were welcoming and helpful. Our room had a king bed, small refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker, along with a television atop a chest with ample drawer space. There were also two chairs and a desk in the room. The room was clean and quiet (room 210, second floor)... More

This hotel is cheap and open late so it works well for road trips. It is near Joshua Tree and Death Valley National Parks as well. Because its cheap, do not expect anything amazing. It's a basic older hotel. Mismatched furniture and a musty smell after you take a hot shower. But it serves the purpose if you're just stopping... More

All you need when you are on the road is found there for a competitive price. Clean, with WiFi, comfy bed, quiet, we did not try the free breakfast though. Nothing fancy but did a great job, recommended.

This hotel is located on the main street and therefore a lot of restaurants and stores are easily accessible ! The person at the front desk was very hospitable and gave us a lot of recommendations for shopping and eating . The room was big and clean and the bed comfortable . Unfortunately the AC unit was very noisy and... More
