Absolutely terrible. There was a horrible smell in the room, the bed sheets had burn holes in them, and the Wifi did not work at all. Additionally, the "breakfast" consisted of a tiny pre-packaged awful pastry and not even tea was available.

The lady at the reception didn't seem to be very interested in welcoming clients. The Wifi signal was not coming all the way to the end of the building. Breakfast was only wrapped junk with way too much sugar. Just the ordinary motel room. Fortunately not expensive.

This place is literally a pit stop. Room was clean n bed was surprisingly comfortable. Family running it was nice. But... The office smelled BADLY of ethnic food. The office is only open certain hours. No phone in room(!) No blow dryer in room. Ice machine STILL broken from previous reviews. Continental breakfast is a joke. It's only offered 2...

The room here was perfectly fine and the service was good at reception. However, when I needed to make a call the phone didn't work. However, the staff did offer me the use of the desk phone and tried their best. The breakfast is hardly anything at all worth writing about. Overall though, it was clean, roomy, quiet and well-located.

I didn't finish checking in. The clerk, a dark skin male. perhaps Indian or Pakistani, about 30 years old was the rudest desk clerk I have ever met. He seemed to have a big problem with white Anglo males. I will avoid this chain . Perhaps forever.

Staff told me that they put up a "no vacancy" note on the office door every afternoon because they don't want to be bothered with renting rooms. Really. I had problems with my room -- wifi not working, TV not working. I went to the empty office and spent 15 minutes calling out before anyone came. The staff offered to...

Each year around the New Year Holiday, my wife likes to participate in an activity in the High Desert. I believe this is the best place in town in its price range. We only stay in these type of motels for sleeping overnight. Very quiet, Ridgecrest is at New Years, four or five guest rooms only occupied on the Eve....

No big frills but the bed was comfortable, pillows great and the room quiet. Room was clean. No coffee maker in the room, had to go downstairs, and the shampoo was in a packet so bring your own. Ok for a short stay in town.

Staff was friendly, room very clean and their breakfast was not so bad! Would certainly stay here again if I'm ever in the area. My only complaints: 1. Door wouldn't lock properly (which worried me) 2. Was awakened during the night by two men speaking loudly in Spanish by my door - it was a bit creepy.

“our room was fairly close to the street, and we were not bothered by traffic noise. We could ,however, hear some noise from the next room. If the parked cars were any indication, they tried spacing people several rooms apart from each other, so ask for a room with nobody next to you if possible.”
