You can't expect much for $50, however our room was clean, although the furnishing are well worn. The bathroom was large and AC worked. The area attracted homeless folk which may put guests at ill-ease. Doors did triple lock.

Yes, a Motel 6 is budget, but budget doesn't mean filthy. Dirty pool, garbage lying around, dog poop everywhere, dirty linens/pillows, no water pressure, one water temp called "lukewarm", torn shower curtain, and so on. Gross.

The dirtiest, most used and least equipped Motel 6 out of three we have stayed at so far. We rather used our own sleeping bags and pillows, there was no fridge in the room and WiFi barely worked. As a matter of fact though Ridgecrest was some $25 cheaper than Page and St George - I guess it showed. Would... More

Where do I start? There really isn't anything good to say. I could deal with the desperate need of renovation if it weren't for the AWFUL beds. It felt like sleeping on plywood. I'm pretty sure the filthy, flat pillow is as old as the hotel. The pillow case don't full cover the pillows so your stuck with the filth... More

This place is getting tired. The carpets are totally worn out, you can see they used to have a pattern on them, but only at the edges now because it's worn off the rest. The carpets are also sticky, they apparently are never shampooed, only vacuumed. The electrical outlets are all worn out so you can't plug in your cell... More

The air conditioning in my first room didn't work (temperature outside was 100+), terrible TV reception, WiFi kept dropping my connection, coffee wasn't ready when advertise. Did I mention the bugs? Very, very disappointing.

The room was covered in boxwood beetle bugs, both dead and alive. While I understand there was an infestation in Ridgecrest, I would think the cleaning staff would be sure to vacuum at least the dead ones and attempt to get rid of the live ones. I told the office staff and they were nice, but just repeated that there... More

Very friendly staff, and a very clean and nice room. It was very quiet at night as well. Good cable tv, wifi connection, and air conditioning. Good family style restaurant less than a block away. Parking was convenient. Wifi is free with AARP.

Room was fine, decor a little cheesy from the 80s, but air conditioning, clean beds. Just soap in the bath and not enough towels, but they gave us more. Wifi is $3, we got a fridge for $3 more. Microwave in the lobby. Just coffee in the morning. Pool is unheated, but nice when we visited in June at 107... More

The hotel was clean and furnished well enough for the price but the central air conditioning seemed old and ineffective in the desert heat. The room was so hot, even by midnight, as to make it almost impossible to sleep. The high that day was in the low 90's and it can get much hotter then that in Ridgecrest. This... More
