I'm going to be generous and give this place three stars. The room was small, and the shower a bit ropey. But the mattress and pillows were actually really comfortable, better than many a more expensive place. We arrived late at night, around 10pm, and we quickly and efficiently checked in. It's not a town that I'd ever have visited,...

Room was clean, but the beds are old, you can feel all the springs. Definitely not a good night sleep. No breakfast or coffee. You can also here a lot of noise from cars driving by. I can also say that the staff was not friendly.

My friend and I had been hiking in Death Valley and then drove to Ridgecrest and needed a place to stay for the night. We were exhausted and happened across this place. It was cheap and seemed average for a motel. I have never experienced such rudeness. We asked to see the room first, but the man behind the counter...

Not kidding. There really was no coffee. Not in the room, not at the office. No way to even heat water for instant. This place is not for everyone. It’s an old, squat motor court, and though the paint is fresh and the bathroom fixtures new, the room is small and cramped and the furniture strictly thrift-store. For $55 a...

The reception lady was friendly which boded well, but the rooms were very small. Wifi intermittent and most important of all if you're travelling - water was nowhere near hot enough for a shower. Starbucks across the road and Ale's was good for evening meal

We were just passing through Ridgecrest so decided to stay at a really inexpensive place. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: This place was nice and clean, even the shower. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room, although not needed for a one night stay. The Manager Danny was nice and very apologetic when the credit card...

I was with my wife and two friends here and it was perfect. Very clean and quite, cheap and very friendly. The motel is kindly managed by a lovely family that also took care of our car during our 4days bike tour.

We were happily surprised to find that this motel was very clean, comfortable, and great for a night's stop on our road trip up Scenic Route 395. Our room slept 5, and it was comfortable enough for us, a family raveling on a budget.

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,...
