I usually stay at the SpringHill Suites or Hampton Inn, but they were both booked. I will definitely reschedule my next trip if those two are booked again. This was way too overpriced. I was by the street, and for a small quiet town, Ridgecrest is very noisy when you want to go to sleep. The room smelled musty and dirty, the carpet was horribly stained, and the furniture has definitely seen better days (maybe even better decades). The lady at the desk was very nice. She offered to give me 10% off, but even then, this would have been a horrible value. I would price this room at about $50...I paid three times that much. Will not be staying here again, less

Thank you for your recent stay at our property.
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay here at our motel.
We are the hub to Death Valley, Las Vegas, Reno, Bakersfield, Sequoia National Park. Plus, we have China Lake Naval Air Weapon Section here. We do charge more that a lot of hotels/motels because of the guest traffic. We have many days a week that the town is sold out.
We are planning to remodel all our rooms soon. It was supposed to be this year, but, Management is still working with our corporate owner.
We hope to see you in the future.
