“Perfect for desert excursions”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Stayed here with a group of friends for two nights to attend the Petroglyph tour on the China Lake NWS.
PROS
Closest hotel to the base.
Updated rooms with granite counter tops in bath (king rooms)
Clean, quiet in back of building, great water pressure and refrigerator
Nice breakfast with waffles, although I augmented with our own deli ham and yogurt
CONS
Water pressure was too strong for the drains (all well, my feet got cleaned)
Breakfast could expand a bit with healthier choices
Some rooms only had a/c, no heat...one of our group needed to change rooms
Caveat: The front desk was quick and changed the room in less than 5 min.

I have stayed at the Motel 6 for trips to Death Valley and the Petroglyph tour. This beat them hands-down. This will be my hotel of choice for a quick stay in the future.

Room Tip: Book via Internet for best prices. Gal at registration desk commented on our great price

Check in was easy and fast. The room was very clean. It was located right next to the base entrance gate.

I just got back from a fall family trip to Death Valley, and we stayed at this hotel. I don't know about you, but in these tough economic times I am not focused on luxury, but a place that offers simple good quality and high value. This hotel was exactly that: clean, safe and comfortable enough, nothing fancy, for my family traveling in a group of 8. We got one standard room and one suites room for pretty cheap. It was exactly what we needed to have a fun, economical vacation to Death Valley.

The morning breakfast was a bonus too, these guys have a full spread from muffins to toast and hot waffles, and was perfect to fill up my munchkins before we got going in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool seem a bit more quiet.

Does the job. Massive beds, big spacious rooms. A little outdated sure, but clean. On the scenic route through Death Valley to/from Las Vegas.

For the price you pay you cannot complain.

Very motel-ish but felt safe enough.

Ridgecrest has enough going on in terms of restaurants and shops.

As a stayover place for the night it is fine.

Stayed November 2010, traveled as a couple

I've stayed here about five times while visiting Ridgecrest and the last time reminded me of why I always choose it. We had our new untrained dog get loose from the nearby enclosed yard and run off into the darkness. My daughter was devastated, but the lady working that night offered lots of encouragement and concern, and was generally thrilled when someone found out doggie and returned her. Try that at a Motel Six. Would stay here again without question.

The motel appears to either be new or recently renovated and our room was immaculate. It's pretty basic, but a great place to stay for a couple of days or overnight on the way to somewhere else. Would definitely stay there again.

The quality of the motel is quite good, probably just a little expensive
