We have stayed here several times. Never any problem. Room is spacious and clean. NOTE: my husband says they have "an ancient ethernet connection . . .need a cable". Breakfast begins quite early, which is good.

Ridgecrest is a little out of the way, but on the route to the Eastern Sierras, Death Valley and other destinations. While there are more options than in the past, I have a fondness for the Best Western China Lake Inn. It is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. After a week of camping, I really appreciate the pool and spa!

Very much enjoyed a pleasant stay in Ridgecrest, The room very clean, nice breakfast, quick in and out processes, great people. The internet was very fast and easy to use, which is always an issue when traveling. Like the coffee always available too.

The facility is modest, as is breakfast, but the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. This, together with the very reasonable price and its location, makes it worth coming to this Inn. The rooms are of average size, the carpet dirty and smelly as it is in most inns.

Very friendly staff. Rooms very clean. Pool was refreshing. Free breakfast was "ok". Typical free breakfast. They need to invest in sturdier plastic ware. Location was centrally located. Felt safe. Very busy - make sure you make a reservation. Room to park U haul trailers.

Excellent Motel with all the amenities, and a great breakfast early in the morning for an early start. Cool rooms away from the intense heat. Convenient to the Navy base and lots of good restaurants. We enjoyed great food at Schooners.

Passing through this little town I was pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and service provided by this Motel. The front counter person was welcoming and accommodating. The room was clean and well appointed. Considering the age and location this hotel is doing very well for it's self.

A perfect stop over from West Coast to Flagstaff. If you interested in US Navy this is place to go,although we did not go. The hotel was top quality as always. Breakfast was so well laid out. Had dinner in Denny's just up the strip. Our room was top floor facing the setting sun, beautiful. Tina on reception went through... More

The staff were all very nice, from the front desk to the young lady in the breakfast room. The breakfast was very good. The room was clean but very small. The front door was not hung correctly or was broken - it had a large gap on the bottom and lower side - large enough for insects to come through.... More
