Check in was quick and easy. Asked the receptionist what there was to do in the area and she told us it was a stop over town with nothing to do in the area. Hotel is located on a busy 4 lane main road, with a major train line behind it. Very noisy throughout the night. Room is dated but... More

best western is the most excellent hotel. Everything is perfect there. The bed and pillows are so comfortable. Nice and quiet, no noise. Restaurant right next door. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Easy and close parking. The t.v. could be a little bigger. Nice amenities. I cannot say enough good things about Best Western.

Looks like it was recently updated; all the amenities I was looking for including Refrigerator, microwave,Iron, cable TV, ect. A good selection of warm breakfast items. The only draw back for me was it's located near train tracks, and the train run often. I was able to drown out the noise and get a good nights sleep by keeping the... More

A very nice place to stay in the desert. The room was very clean and next to a Denny's. Wi Fi and cable TV were fast and many channels to choose from. I think the best was a great breakfast - probably the best we've had at a motel in a long time. Hot great tasting coffee and real actual... More

We checked in on the Friday after thanksgiving for the weekend. The gentleman in the office was very helpful, and it was a breeze to check in. Also fresh coffee was available , which was good because it was about 26 degrees outside. We checked into our room and it was very spacious and clean. Heater and AC worked wonderfully.... More

We were not able to even open the door of the first room we were given; the second room had mold and remnants from the last guests in the refridgerator, the television did not work, the deadbolt did not work, and the shower curtain was gross. The heater/air conditioner unit was excessively noisy and we had no ability to book... More

Thank you for your review. I appologize for not meeting your expectations. Found that the clutch kit in the door lock went out and the housekeeper that cleaned the second room thought that it was a stay over, but still no excuse. She decided that she is not able to make it as a housekeeper and has since left the... More

Stayed here due to bad weather. We were happy to find it. The only real problem we had concerned the shower curtain, which would not stay together. Solved the problem using towels all over the floor next to the tub. The cleaning staff must have known about the issue, but left the curtain in pieces anyway. Breakfast with eggs available... More

Desert Winds is an appropriate name for this Best Western property. Situated in Mojave, CA the winds comes funneling down the Tehachapi Mountain Pass and it is no wonder there are many wind turbines in the area. Quite picturesque if you like the desert (which I do!) The motel itself is clean, well kept and what one expects from this... More
