We used this hotel as we were on a road trip to California, Arizona areas. It was a great find. We had a queen room, it had two queen beds, microwave, fridge, coffee machine, it was spotlessly clean. We stayed for 2 nights, there was complimentary breakfast which included hot scrambled eggs and sausages, as well as pancakes, toast, pastries,... More

Our request for a particular room was met enthusiastically and cheerfully by the receptionist - Thanks! We had a burnt-out lamp, which was replaced instantly - Thanks! We had a very noisy neighbor above us - noise insulation side-to-side was great. Up-to-down not so much.

Great hotel with lovely rooms and very comfortable beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. When I stayed there were Ridgecrest was swarmed with a bug infestation sweeping across California but the hotel was prepared with information for the guests and spare towels to make sure there were no gaps under the door for bugs to get in. Free breakfast... More

As long as you checkin with low expectations, you'll be okay. Rooms are quite small and outdated. The free breakfast marginally makes up for some shortcomings. Don't expect a workspace in this property unless you call lying/sitting on you bed as a workspace.

Very nice reasonable priced hotel. Excellent breakfast options, including make your own waffles. Has a spa and pool available. Very caring staff on duty. Coffee in room with a decent size fridge, for a hotel. Easy access to the Naval base or back to the highway.

Stayed here for one night. Luckily they gave us a room on the upper level. Extremely noisy. People coming and going all night long. This is an exterior corridor old style motel so anyone arriving late/ leaving early in their car will keep you awake. Breakfast not worth having unless you're desperate although juice was good. Staff disinterested. No one... More

One of the most noticeable aspects of the hotel is the efficient courteous staff. I never felt like I was interrupting them. They were always there to help. I found the room clean and well equipped, but those rooms with 2 double beds are a little cramped for space. It has plenty of convenient parking and many restaurants close by.... More

When the water at home went out unexpectedly, we had to find local hotel room on short notice. The tricky part: our beloved family cat was in failing health and couldn't be left alone overnight at home, so we needed a hotel that would accept her. Best Western Plus China Lake Inn to the rescue! The front desk representative was... More
