This hotel is ACTULLY pretty good overall, it has good breakfast, friendly staff, and the inside is at least decently cleaned but I found a lot of things broken and such. I have a door open, broken toilet lid, and the inside overall is just poor.

The breakfast was to die for and I loved that they opened at 5am so I could get an early start! Scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, yogurt, cereal, waffles, muffins, toast, hardboiled eggs, juice..it was all there and...

Excellent clean rooms. I must praise the receptionist in particular who went out of her way to welcome us . She was attentive to details, charming and reassuring when discussing a disastrous experience next door . Hot breakfast included in the deal. Highly recommended

We were on a family trip and we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Breakfast was excellent. The room was comfortable. We noticed a whole lot of people used this facility as the parking lot was full every night.

Ridgecrest was not a destination but simply a pit stop on our way through Death Valley to Las Vegas. As such, I didn't expect much...and I didn't get it. The hotel was your typical budget rack but with a few eccentricities. For example, we spent the night expecting the people in the room above us to fall through the floor!...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our Best Western China Lake Inn. We do need to clarify your statement about the Guest who stepped into the planter and hurt herself. We do have several Eye Witness's written statements, that the Guest was going up the stairs and either miss-stepped or lost her balance and fell...

This is a typical american hotel. Small building (ground + first floor), parking lot in front of the rooms, typical american breakfast with waffles, bread and cereals. Swimming pool is not heated, but jacuzzi is. The rooms are kind of small compared to other Best Westerns, but we have family suite with a lots of space. On the other side...

This motel is in bad need of a redecoration. The carpet was old and stained, although it was clean from vacuuming. The furniture was chipped and the room looked shabby. Breakfast was excellent, however, as was the service from the front desk staff. If you can get a room here for $70 or less, it is OK. We booked at...
