I was looking for a place to stay for a week while relocating for work to this area, and Ridge Motor Inn beat the next-closest low rate by nearly $15 a night. I stayed by myself in what I was told was the 'worker' rooms, meaning those that were not remodeled but still functional. I'll say that for the rate I got, being just under $40 a night during the week, to have a decent bed, microwave, coffee maker, A/C unit, fridge, free wi-fi, and nice bathroom is an awesome deal. That's not even to mention the pool, arcade, and fitness center, as I didn't get time to indulge in any of those.
Housekeeping did a great job each day, as I anticipated with this rate that they may do minimal, if any cleaning. I've seen rooms costing $100+ that don't include a fridge, so that was a terrific benefit to store some groceries in and reduce my cost even further. Although my initial check-in wasn't with the friendliest clerk, I did ask one of the nights about pool access and she was very friendly and helpful.
Don't expect top dollar if you're not paying it. Sure, this room looks like it may have not seen a decor upgrade in the last 20-30 years, but if you want a comfortable place to sleep with nice amenities and a good rate, stay here. You're right by the 39 interchange and just a few minutes from 90/94, and there's a bunch of food/grocery options on the highway. Great location, great rooms, good service, and awesome price. Surpassed my expectations!
