Excellent property and service except for one item: train tracks across the street with hourly traffic. If traveling with children, enjoy open space and pool area. National chain 24-hour coffee shop almost adjacent to property.

We needed a place to rest after a long day driving and stopped here getting just barely what we needed. Front desk was friendly, bed was hard and uncomfortable, breakfast was average, not great but it worked. Noise, yeah, all of Mojave has noise as the train tracks run parallel to Sierra Highway and that is where all the motels... More

Never stay at a Best Western. This seems very unfair and I do not think it is right. A pastor of my church brought me down to Mojave (who has now since gone home). That is so I could stay in the hotel for one night (the half I told you about). I am staying at a Best Western in... More

Needed a place to stay the night in Mojave, and Desert Winds fit the bill. Friendly service and a nice clean room at a decent price. Quite a bit of noise from the trains during the night, but I guess that is hard to avoid. Wifi and breakfast was included; the wifi connection was fine, the breakfast was pretty average... More

We arrived very late in the evening and were warmly greeted by Jennifer, despite the hour. She laughingly explained the flashing red lights that blink on the horizon as wind fans, and not aliens. After our many hours of driving, she was a breath of fresh air. The parking lot has plenty of room for all the boats, campers, and... More

This was our fourth stay in this hotel. It has become our go-to hotel when travelling south or back home to Canada and need a room in the area. A small town so very easy to get around, right beside a Denny's for dinner and a clean, comfortable, well-priced hotel with a quality breakfast and swimming pool (which we will... More

Always worth the money. clean and friendly. I always look for a Best Western when I travel anywhere now. Breakfast isn't fancy but it gets the day started and since its included, really helps out when you have a family to feed.

Nice enough hotel, but a very poor area for amenities. Dennys or the Mexican/fast food was the only real choice Staff and rooms were fine for a motel style property. pool was freezing!!! Breakfast was fine. no bars for a quick drink after a long ride.

We stayed here for one night on the drive from Grand Canyon to SF. Wasn't expecting much at all but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were really friendly, the room was large and modern, free parking and a complementary breakfast. We got in late so we didn't eat out but there was a 24 hour Denny's nearby. Highly recommend
