This hotel is a nice quiet property, centrally located in the town and if you are going to Death Valley or Sequoia is a good stopover. It used to be a very nice property but is a bit rundown. Could definitely use some love and for a Choice branded property should be a little nicer.
The rooms are somewhat renovated, however the lobby, restaurant, and meeting areas are not. The lobby carpet and carpet in the hallway to the restaurant is in desperate need of cleaning. The Front Desk staff is also in need of some general customer service training. A smile goes a long way. The restaurant staff were pleasant. The free breakfast is very nice, food was decent. One server was great, the other not so much.
The rooms are comfortable, come with a fridge and microwave and a giant flat screen tv. The room was clean, plenty of towels and the housekeeping staff was super. The AC worked great and there is ample parking. The hotel is safe and well lit.
I loved the fact that the entire hotel roof is covered with solar panels, good for them for using what is in abundance in Ridgecrest.
I would stay here again for sure. I hope the owners put a little more money into the property, it could be lovely again.
