I come to the Mojave almost every weekend for both business and please. I have been coming to the desert Inn for over 10 years and would not stay anywhere else. The owners are delightful and will do their best to ensure you have a pleasant stay. The rooms are a good size and have always been spotless when I... More

Something of a time warp. Old fashioned looking place with many modern amenities. Room was spotless but small. Plenty of room for us two seniors and our old Sheltie. No charge for Mac either. Other motels wanted as much as $25 for a pet. Modernized bath, flat screen TV, coffee maker, good bed (big double or small queen). Only complaint... More

What a relief to find an economy motel with spotless, comfortable rooms, in CA! When travelling through the Mojave, I usually stop and hike the Kelso dunes, then camp in the Preserve with the boulders and Joshua trees, but with Nov. nights a tad cold to camp, I read the reviews and stopped at the Desert Inn. Comfy bed, nice... More

Looks old but was comfortable, clean, and complete. The innkeeper was amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was laid out well, and the fixtures were modern. We got no hint of railway noise, unlike some other parts of town. And all at a surprisingly low price! Would definitely stay there again.

Very friendly staff. Clean older style place and quiet room. A budget price made this a good choice for travel with my small dog. If you need an upscale brand name, pass by. But if you want a comfortable night in a clean room you'll find it here.

Stayed one night at this hotel. Very welcoming staff and manager. Clean and functional rooms with very reasonable rates. Nice breakfast included. Wide Parkings bays right outside room. Used coin operated laundry, very convenient. Close to various eateries in town. I would definitely stay here again.

I had chosen this place due to the Trip Advisor reviews and I am still puzzling over the fact that it came in at the top, but having not stayed at the other places in Mojave I guess I'll have to take people's words for it being the best!
