“Great Deal!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

When I hear "Econo Lodge," I think "dirty/old/out-dated". That was not the case with the Ridgecrest location. The bed was comfortable, the wifi actually worked (!!!), they had tea at the breakfast buffet (and not just that Lipton crap, they had actual options), and the staff was very very helpful. I stayed here for a night before venturing into Death Valley. The hotel was a perfect starting point and offered tons of brochures on the National Park; I didn't even need to buy a map since there was a free one in the lobby. I definitely recommend this place!

This hotel provides excellent value when you consider all the amenities (pool, wifi, breakfast, refrigerator) for the price. Rooms were very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Very friendly and helpful staff. A short drive to many restaurant choices.

Definitely the best lower-end motel in Ridgecrest and possibly the best (we only stayed at one upper tier there and it was not quite as good). Moderately large rooms, clean, neat, organized, great breakfast (two waffle makers). Everything worked great, refrigerator already cold when we checked in. Staff friendly. Overall, a pleasant place. Wifi was good when it worked, but mysteriously dropped out from time to time. Perhaps our neighbors were extremely aggressive. No restaurant or fitness center.

Room Tip: Upper floors probably best.

The hotel is cheap and the price is reflected in what you get. Wifi is terribly slow (unusable). Breakfast is waffles and muffins. Air conditioner is really loud. But, if you need a cheap place to stay this hotel will work. Rooms are clean and descent sized. Per Diem travelers should look elsewhere.

I spent a night in Ridgecrest while on my way out of Death Valley, and was looking for economical lodgings. This place exceeded my expectations by a large margin. The check-in was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and modern, and the breakfast was bounteous and included hot waffles, fresh fruit, and hot tea, which for this non-coffee drinker is a big plus.

Look, it's an Econo Lodge, which is a small step up from a Motel 6. If the bathtub isn't clogged with previous guest's hair, and the room doesn't smell like cigarettes, it's a bonus. But this place was genuinely upscale, and there were several decent eateries within walking distance. It's in Ridgecrest, for God's sake. What's not to like? Highly recommended!

Good place to stop after visiting Death Valley. The wifi was the fastest we have foundonourtrip possibly compliments of. He litany base next door. Sad foreigners cannot go to see the petroglyphs which are on the b ase. The room was adequate and clean only thing was older linen. But yogurt what you pay for . The friendly. Greeting from Karen at the dest was welcoming and genuine. Easy parking, smoking and non smoking rooms all clean. They save power by leavi the fridge off. It tells you on there toff the fridge.breakfast included learn how to make your own waffles instruction suppliedfree

Room Tip: We were at the front and were not affected Bryant road noise

We arrived late at night after a long day on the road. Lady at the reception was very friendly and gave us two options as we were travelling as 2 couples (2 smaller rooms or 1 large room). We chose to share a large room to save some money and we were only staying for 1 night. The room looked old, but was very clean. Everything in the room was perfect except for the air-conditioning. Although it worked fine, it was very noisy.

We woke up pretty early and had breakfast (which was included). Simple cereal, muffins, toast, waffles, coffee and juice. For the price we paid, this was all we needed.
