Do not miss staying here if possible. While a room for 2 is small, it is well furnished, colorful & VERY clean. Note: Most of the 1st floor room guests must step-up into the rooms (well marked with yellow paint). It was impressive to note a lift at the pool & separate jacuzzi for handicapped guests! The breakfast is tasty,...

If you want a great night's sleep with quality prices, then Best Western is the place to go. I stayed 3 of 5 nights at a Best Western and would have been 5 of 5 but two nights were on a military base. This is my hotel of choice.

These rooms were the narrowest I have ever stayed in. The bed was shoved right up to the front wall so that the air conditioning unit blew on the bed all night. Very cramped quarters I was overjoyed to get out of.

Great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed, with a basic hot breakfast to follow. Very clean. The staff were very very helpful with travel advice. Parking was close to the room. Great spot to depart from to go to Death Valley.

We arrived needed a restroom so the wonderful woman gave our room key to our 18 year old traveling companion and then registered us. She was a life saver. The rooms are a bit cramped for 3 adults, but our dog was most comfortable and plenty of residential streets for our walks. A great spot for a visit to Death...

I have stayed several times at this motel over the years. Always found friendly staff, clean rooms, and a good breakfast that includes scrambled eggs and sausages. The pool isn't heated but there is a jacuzzi that is. This is a good location to launch a visit to Death Valley and the prices are very reasonable.

Extremely courteous and helpful staff, rooms very clean, breakfast nice, even coffee was better than average budget chain hotels. Only gripe would be price a bit steep considering not much out here to justify (paid same to stay in BW across from Disneyland just few days ago)

I was surprised to see a handicap accessible pool and jacuzzi which gives them a big plus! The closets in the room seemed to make the rooms cramped and hard to get around the bed. The room was nicely made up and quality toiletries were provided. Great water pressure in the shower, which was nice to wash away the dust...

Although there's little to recommend the town of Ridgecrest, the Best Western Hotel was a very satisfactory experience and the staff was most helpful in directing us to sights in the area. The small museum in town was a good visit.
