“Clean, Comfortable & Quiet......”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

The 3 things I look for in a room. OK, so it's not much to look at, but to me this place was an oasis in the desert. I stayed here on 2 separate occasions 2 weeks ago. Yea, I came back even a 2nd time. The room has a fridge, microwave, desk, chair and flat screen TV. A shower, but no tub. The working air conditioner was sooooo nice! It also had free wi-fi. The one thing lacking was in room coffee, but there's a cafe right next door. It's a modest property, but right across the street to almost every store and eating place you will need. The staff was very warm and personable.

Room Tip: #125 and 127 next to cafe

Stayed for one night on my way back from Death Valley. Quite basic, but reasonably comfortable and slept well. Bed linen clean and good supply of hot water. Parking directly outside room. There is a small cafe adjoining, which I guess is ok for a quick breakfast, albeit I preferred to walk to Denny's despite being almost mile distant. Little of interest in Ridgecrest, and just an obvious stopover point. However, I found the roads around town confusing and not as simple as map indicated. Small reception desk only where check-in and leave key. Location of motel is just average, but cheaper nightly tariff reflects a lower standard.

We came there in Winter (dec. 29 - about 43°F outside) and arrived in a very cold room. Heather is performed by the air-conditionner unit which is not efficient. It took about 30 min to start blowing almost hot air. It never become sufficient to stay comfortably. Heather is very noisy and thus must be stopped at night.
Rooms near the road are more noisy, but all rooms are subject to hear the air-conditionner/heater of the neighbor room.

Bathroom was clean but not room, little chocolate crisps were on the floor, it's disgusting when it sticks to your feet...

Compared to other motels we stayed at in our trip, this one is about 10$ more expensive.

Room Tip: Do not go there in winter: no heater in bathroom - see 2 others hotels across the street Rooms near...

I've stayed at the Ridgecrest Budget Inn on several occasions. It is a basic no-frills motel, and priced accordingly. The closest thing to a problem I ever experienced was on a chilly afternoon with a heat exchanger that appeared not to be working. The person at the desk assured me it would be fine if I gave it a few minutes; after 5-10 minutes the room was warm.

I have always found the housekeeping acceptable. There is no free ice, but a pay machine is available. Rooms have microwaves and small refrigerators; the TV has an unusually good assortment of channels for a cheap motel. The single story rooms, constructed of cinder block, are quiet.

For an overnight stay this place suits me fine. Those who want lodging with lots of amenities should stay elsewhere--and pay more.

Heater barely worked, very cold room in winter. Receptionist nice but said the heater would get warmer later which it didn't. Used the hair drier to heat room in the end! Very thin blanket too so slept in clothes. Apart from that ok and wifi works.

The room was functional and it did have a fridge, which I required for my stay. When I got there, they couldn't find my prepaid reservation. Turned out "someone" put it in the wrong place. I told them the other person in my party (second room) wouldn't be there and they would charge the one night and refund the other, but I received no receipt or other confirmation of that. When I got to the room, the fridge wasn't even plugged in let alone cold. And the temperature controller didn't have a knob. The AC unit wasn't on either and it was very stuffy in the room. I turned both on and they worked fine, but the cleaning staff turned the AC off then next day when they cleaned the room! The carpet seemed dirty and I didn't want to walk around barefoot. The wi-fi worked fine. The bathroom was fine, but small, cramped and had little counterspace. The bathroom door was not ADA compliant and the shower was super small. There were hairs in the shower and on the bathroom counter. All in I will, I will not stay there again. I will pay the extra $30 a night to stay a nicer, more reputable hotel.

Like another reviewer said, this place is a decent place to stay for one night. Although the place wasn't dirty, the room itself was very small and cramped. There was not much space to move in around. Then again, I only stayed on the first floor and not the second and I think there are larger rooms (for a steeper price). I was slightly disappointed but as this was a last minute decision, it was not bad.
