From the 2-3 of april we stayed at Econo - Ridgecrest. Via our travel agency we had paid in advance. Like all US-hotels they asked about creditcard information.When we arrived home in Denmark, we could see in our bank that Econo had charged us 202USD. We have now for over 2 months tried to get our money with no results!!!!Very...

LarsVerning, We never charge more than what we should to our guests. I personally, looked into your matter. We are owners of the Econo Lodge. Only web site, that allows us to credit guests directly is booking.com. Rest of the web sites, charge our guests directly.

This is not upscale lodging and the rating of very good reflects the fair price and value received. The room had a microwave and fridge and was clean. Breakfast was basic. The Wifi wasn't reliable. I liked the close proximity for a pizza takeout. The reality is I had no major complaints and would stay here again. It's comforting to...

Sharon, Thank you for your vote of confidence. In your review, you made the statement that "would stay here again." Review like yours, make us want to try harder to anticipate the needs of our guests, and keep trying harder. Thanks again!! Yvonne/G.H. Popat

Room was clean and the price was right. Close to several restaurants and not far from excellent off road riding areas in the desert. A pizza factory is across the parking lot as well as a movie theater. Expresso bar also within walking distance.

Rekha1, Owner at Econo Lodge Inn & Suites, responded to this review

Daryl, Thank you very much for your kind review. Did you know that we were approved for Comfort and Ramada franchise? Simply because, our rooms and accommodations, are of higher level than our brand name might suggest. Only reason, we turned down the Comfort and Ramada franchise is; we would have to increase our rates. As a result, we remain,...

We stayed here over the President's day weekend for a trip out to Death Valley. The rooms was clean, large, and the beds comfortable. The hotel employees were very friendly and helpful. Prices are good so I would stay here again.

Thank you very much for giving us 4 out of 5 on your review. You even wrote that you would stay with us again. Thank you again! As you well know we are a budget brand. We try to provide rooms, and breakfast that lot better than any budget brand motel in Ridgecrest. Did you know we have been winning...

We needed a place to stay for one night for our drive on Hwy. 395 and somewhere that accepted small pets. The Econo Lodge fit the bill, and it provided reasonable accommodations at a reasonable price. There is a nice fenced in grassy area for pets to run around. The room was basic but clean. The bathroom was mostly clean,...

Pretty basic accommodations, but if you need to stay in the area, there isn't much choice. My only comparison would be to the Clarion in Ridgecrest. I won't compare it to other hotels I've stayed in because if you're in Ridgecrest, your alternative would not be a much nicer hotel in Boston. Spartan accommodations with virtually no amenities other than...

Allegro, Thank you for the review. We are an Economy brand motel. So, I was pleasantly surprised that you compared us with a Full service brand like Clarion. Clarion, charges lot more for rooms than we do. Our focus is to provide best value. In fact, we were approved to be Ramada or Comfort. These brands wanted much higher rate...

Ridgecrest's Econo Lodge is a good choice if you're on a budget. Rooms are clean, kept up, and front desk staff are helpful and professional. Don't expect four star accommodations and you won't be disappointed. Their breakfasts are very basic, but if you can get by with a banana, hotel waffle, toast, or mini-muffin and coffee, you're set. Breakfast begins...

If you are looking for a large, clean, comfortable, reasonably priced room at a hotel with a friendly and helpful staff, you could pay more but you will not be any more satisfied than if you stayed here.

Dear rehclass , Thank you for your kind review. Hopefully we provided the feeling of home away from home, for you and your family. I know, when I stay at a hotel/motel, my experience is enhanced when I get the feeling of home away from home. We hope to see you soon ! Regards, G. H. Popat

Older but very clean and quiet. Loved the fenced grassy area for my two Schnauzers.Felt safe and liked the frig and microwave in the room. Good value but we did not eat free breakfast but it was offered, the usual. Staff was friendly and efficient. Only negative was slow internet.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We firmly believe that dogs are man's (woman's), best friends. So, we have provided separate area for dogs to walk and do their "business". We are one of the few places in town that welcome pets. In addition, we dare not forget the dog owners !! It appears that you stayed at...
