Room was fine, decor a little cheesy from the 80s, but air conditioning, clean beds. Just soap in the bath and not enough towels, but they gave us more. Wifi is $3, we got a fridge for $3 more. Microwave in the lobby. Just coffee in the morning. Pool is unheated, but nice when we visited in June at 107...

The hotel was clean and furnished well enough for the price but the central air conditioning seemed old and ineffective in the desert heat. The room was so hot, even by midnight, as to make it almost impossible to sleep. The high that day was in the low 90's and it can get much hotter then that in Ridgecrest. This...

The room is small but comfortable. We wanted to save money more than have a big room and all the comforts. Only complaint is someone smokes near the air intake for the airconditioner. Every hour or so the room smells like smoke.

I have slept in many a Motel 6 around the USA and this was just another average one, not bad, not great. The price was right and Motel 6 usually never fails to let me down wherever I go. I found the front staff friendly and helpful with finding local businesses I needed to use. They gave me a room...

Between the yellowish brown sheets, hair in the sheets and under the toilet seat I'm completely disgusted!! This was after being moved to another room which was a replica of the first. I think it's used hourly. I can't believe I allowed my kids to step foot in there! Had to find another motel at 2:30 am. Th smell was...

This was nice and clean place. Its not a Vegas hotel but what you expect of motel which has 40$ a night. You got bed and shower and it does the job. Would recommend it. Clean but outdated. Rooms doesn't have wi-fi

I stay at a lot of Motel 6s and this one is not updated but it is ok. It has a nice pool and is quiet because there are no freeways in Ridgecrest! This time I stayed on the more 'pet friendly' side of the complex and it did have a lingering smell. Pets are allowed.

We frequent motel 6's regularly because you know what to expect and they are clean, comfortable and affordable. But when you do frequent them regularly and internet book months in advance you would expect better than a second floor (walk up) road facing room. And why is there an ashtray in a 'non-smoking room'?. Our room was very functional bit...

Stayed one night at the end of August. Pool was nice, great location in town, but now I'm covered of insect bites! After discovering an insect in my bed,I can tell they have bedbugs there... So go to another hotel to avoid an itchy situation.
