We stayed for a night and we found it very comfortable! Morning breakfast was good and there was a very kind lady to serve us! Swimming pool and gym were available but did not use it. Totally for a single night, we found it comfortable!

Having stayed in hundreds of hotels this was without exaggeration the worst experience I ever had. I showed up on a dark, rainy night with a printed confirmed reservation made on the choice hotels web site. The front desk said I dont have your reservation and I cant help you. When I pressed her what happened to the reservation she...

This used to be THE best hotel in Ridgecrest. And frankly, with a high level of care, it could still be up there as one of the best.....but it needs someone to care. The room had obviously been mostly refurbished in the not too distant past. The bed was good, the bathroom was fully done up to modern standards, and...

They maybe part of a chain now, but standard of rooms are up to scratch. Floors of bathroom seem to never be mopped, as your feet are black after walking on the surface. Carpets seem no to be vacuumed regularly. Paint on walls not finished with any care, tape not removed after painting etc. Room fridge too small, half normal...

We stayed in this motel for overnight coming from long trip through the Death valley. Check-in was very efficient, friendly staff. Room is quite big, plenty of space to unpack, good internet conection. I missed a hanger in the bathroom as there is nowhere to hang your pyjamas while taking a shower. Breakfast is served on site by another company...

Went to this hotel prior to Death Valley. The hotel employees show no interest in hotel and have a bad attitude(where is the training), breakfast was unhealthy and little. Despite the good room i can't recommend this one unless you get a really good discount.

We reserved an ADA (handicapped) room 3 days in advance. Clarion sent us a confirmation for the reservation. When we arrived at 5 p.m., our room was not available, they gave it to an other person, who was not in a wheelchair. So we had to accept a room with a tub. After a long and hot trip in Death...
