Great value. Accommodations were very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. The staff was very nice as well. The shower was nice and hot and the pillows soft and those are two of my favorite things when I stay at a motel.

You can't expect much for $50, however our room was clean, although the furnishing are well worn. The bathroom was large and AC worked. The area attracted homeless folk which may put guests at ill-ease. Doors did triple lock.

Yes, a Motel 6 is budget, but budget doesn't mean filthy. Dirty pool, garbage lying around, dog poop everywhere, dirty linens/pillows, no water pressure, one water temp called "lukewarm", torn shower curtain, and so on. Gross.

The dirtiest, most used and least equipped Motel 6 out of three we have stayed at so far. We rather used our own sleeping bags and pillows, there was no fridge in the room and WiFi barely worked. As a matter of fact though Ridgecrest was some $25 cheaper than Page and St George - I guess it showed. Would...

Where do I start? There really isn't anything good to say. I could deal with the desperate need of renovation if it weren't for the AWFUL beds. It felt like sleeping on plywood.

This place is getting tired. The carpets are totally worn out, you can see they used to have a pattern on them, but only at the edges now because it's worn off the rest. The carpets are also sticky, they apparently are never shampooed, only vacuumed. The electrical outlets are all worn out so you can't plug in your cell...

The room was covered in boxwood beetle bugs, both dead and alive. While I understand there was an infestation in Ridgecrest, I would think the cleaning staff would be sure to vacuum at least the dead ones and attempt to get rid of the live ones. I told the office staff and they were nice, but just repeated that there...
