Bed was nice. Heater worked perfect. Microwave only worked on popcorn setting. Breakfast was yummy! I wish they had a heated pool.. it was cold and raining outside, after a long day of work the bed was such a welcome site.

Arrived at 4 p.m.and cars coming into hotel all night. Very noisy with their auto door locks honking or beeping. Room very clean and staff very nice!!Will not stay here again. The breakfast was substantial and was glad to have some protein in our stomach before we headed to Lake Tahoe.

I do apologize as our area in Ridgecrest does get a lot of contractors in the area. I am glad to hear that the customer service was great and the food was outstanding.

There are lots of contractors who say here. They get up early. We woke up tp the sound of multiple rooms going in and out of their rooms, taking showers, and watching the news. This was around 5am. They also started what sounded like a fleet of trucks. Nothing like the sound of a diesel engine running at 5am. Breakfast...

Very clean rooms with excellent free wi-fi important for business travelers. Good free hot breakfast is included and a good fitness room too! Only complaint is the rooms do not have High Def programming and many of the cable channels came in pretty fuzzy. I always stay here when in Ridgecrest for business or pleasure!

This hotel met all my needs. The room was comfortable, staff were professional in every way, and the hotel was well maintained and pleasant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who was considering staying in the China Lake area for one night or many nights. Thanks to Best Western for offering quality accommodations at a reasonable price.

The room had all the amenities I would expect from a mid-level business hotel. Comfy bed, small microwave, fridge, cable, and free wifi. The free breakfast was standard hotel fare: muffins, hard boiled eggs, 2-3 steam tray items, coffee, and juice. Not much to choose from in China Lake, so Best Western is a good option.

Stayed here for a business meeting in town. Lobby was nice and the staff were very pleasant. However the bed was so so and the shower device to change the water from the tub to the shower did not work. I guess this is to be expected of an older property.

this is a very quiet and quaint community right next to the China Lake Naval Base. The employees are top-notch and very courteous and outgoing. Always eager to assist, this staff is a "looking forward to seeing again" staff. Kudos to the management team of this facility...they have a very good thing going on!!!
