We stayed here just one night after our trip to Death Valley. The check in was quick and informative. The room is super clean and has everything your need like a mini fridge, microwave, iron + ironing board, hairdryer, tv, little table with two chairs to eat, really good wifi and toiletries. Now about the bed, HEAVEN! Enough (good) pillows...

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.

I enjoy the service, quality and availability I receive with Best Western. I appreciate my Platinum membership account. I would like to book all my calendar events for the entire year with all Best Westerns, but I understand that certain locations are private franchises and cannot provide me assurances with multiple months in advance.

It was neither old nor new, clean nor dirty. This Best Western was pretty much a representative of the chain. Linens and the morning buffet were average at best. Staff was very good and helpful. Location was in the older section of town to the south of the mail highways.

The staff was so kind and empathetic to my situation. I was able to do a slightly later checkout so I could run errands in the morning. This was very helpful, as I was moving cross country, which is quite an undertaking. The hotel was very clean, and the overall experience was really nice. I would recommend this hotel to...

Be advised that all of this hotel's rooms are outside entrance, opening directly onto the parking lot. This means folks walking by at all hours, and cars pulling up right to my windows (I was on the first floor). A couple times this got quite noisy, with doors slamming, folks chatting loudly, and car alarms going off at all hours....
