The price is right and the breakfast is good. The rooms were clean and quiet. We did not use the pool but it did look inviting. There is a Denny's next door so food is available and the freeway is within easy access.

Was traveling through California & just needed one night here. Hotel exterior is older, not updated, but rooms were clean & everything worked. Accepted dogs for an extra fee, so that was a value to us. Hd no problems, so can't rate the staff service, but would stay here again if in the area.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The amenities are very good. Most motels have stale donuts, old cereal, and bad coffee for breakfast. Not here. In a large restaurant-type setting across from the office, there is a free hot breakfast including biscuits and gravy, waffles that you fix with a waffle iron, and oatmeal plus assorted fruits and oatmeal...

We were very satisfied with room and breakfast room. They kept breakfast bar complete and fresh. We did find out that they had large vehicle parking the next morning and since we pull RV's from factory to dealers it would have been easier to park in that area. It still was a working solution for us and we enjoyed the... More

Mojave not a place to stay more than a night , like most travellers used this hotel as a journey break. For the price very good value with nice clean room , reasonable pool and hot tub. Breakfast was also included. Mojave seems a little sad and more run down than when we stayed several years ago but new Family... More

If you stay here, bring your own water. There is a terrible odor to the water. I don't know if it is a city wide issue but suspect it is. The soap dispenser soap gives my wife a rash. It did not bother me but you may want to bring your own bar just in case for your shower and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Yes at times the city water does have a smell to it. We have also installed a water softener system due to the hard water. We have heard from a few people that they did not like the soap dispensers and now have bar soap as well as the dispensers.... More

Mojave is not a favorite town but staying at this motel made the stay pleasant. Good location near food and gas. Excellent breakfast in separate room with plenty of seating. Quiet. Good work table. Good bathroom. Automatic lights. Convenient handicap parking. Well lighted parking lot.

I was looking for a nice place to stay in Mojave with my child, so I chose this place. It wasn't the cheapest, but I wanted a nice place. The evening and day staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was pretty much what I had hoped for, including the pool. This is a safe and pleasant choice.

My friend and I stop here on our way to Death Valley. The hotel room was nice, with large comfortable beds. It was quiet and it meant the needs for the night. Breakfast in the morning wasn't prepared by gourmet chefs, however, it to met the need. I would use this hotel again.

Stopped there on the way to Las Vegas. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. As others have said, the pillows were rather lumpy. The hair dryer didn't work. At $81 with an AARP discount it seemed a little pricey.
