I stayed at the Desert Inn for a week while working in the area. I chose the Desert Inn based on reviews I had seen (I am from the East Coast). The excellent rating are 100% on. As noted in other reviews the Inn is older but the room and bathroom have been updated with newer furnishings. The bathroom has... More

We picked this from other reviews. We drove from N. CA. and made this our first night stay on our trip to the Utah parks.. We called and the owner turned on the AC in our room. Very friendly. The room was very clean and had what we needed for our one night stay. The motel is very quiet, away... More

Stayed 1 nt as stopover prior to going death valley. Owner very pleasant, check in simple. Plenty of parking. The room was spacious with a king sized bed. Looked like it had been recently repainted so clean & fresh looking. Nice accessories- matching headboard, bedside tables, desk & smalltable & 2 chairs. Door needs replacing, had duct tape all over... More

Don't be fooled by size, this little roadside motel is a gem of an oasis of the Mojave desert. The rooms are not as big as some but they are always clean and well appointed. I have stayed at many small motels due to my career path. I can honestly tell you I have never reviewed anything in my 53... More

We stayed here for one night on the way from San Francisco to Las Vegas. This is a traditional style motel and much more than we expected. The owner had the aircon switched on ready for us when we arrived and the room was clean and tidy. There was a problem with the telly signal which the owner sorted out... More

Fairly large room with refer/micro. Air conditioner was not the best-it took a long time to cool room down, but the temp was over 100 and windy. Room clean. No counter space in bath. Worked for the price and only 1 night. Manager/owner very friendly and making sure all was ok.

This motel has seen a lot of years, and it shows, but overall it's a very decent place and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. For the price, it's fantastic. I was in a room with a single bed, which had enough room for a desk and a small dining table as well as the appliances. The room was... More

Room clean and tidy with microwave and fridge.unfortunately, our 'no smoking' room did have the smell of stale cigarettes. When we commented on this to the owner, we were told it was due to the air con. system... More

Traveling from Santa Cruz, California to visit my sister in Boulder City, Nevada I wanted to stop about half-way since the drive is long. I had my dog with me-a small, well-behaved rescued girl. The town itself is nothing to write home about, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the motel. The owner/staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The... More
