We arrived around midnight, it was freezing outside but the owner didn't let us in to the reception area to fill the check-in papers and to pay - we were pushed to stay outside for about 15 minutes in 19F (-7C). The room was very cold and all the furniture and fittings were old (some also broken). A/C was ridiculously... More

Good little place. It was nice for such a small motel. We had a good night, not much noise, affordable prices. Even if there is not much things to do nearby, the inn is a good place to stay if you want to make a break on the road.

I should have paid more attention to the pictures and some of the other reviews - but I had stopped at the nr.1 ranking and the good price, and booked it. Oh what a surprise it was when we drove up to the property! By that time we were locked in, as cancellations are not possible with less than 24... More

I thought there was nothing worse than dozing off after a long day only to have noises from the water pipes loudly awaken us, then repeat every 10 minutes until we gave up and decided to get moving. Then I got into the shower only to be scalded when someone flushed a toilet within five rooms of us. Clearly a... More

Everything is comfortable and more than adequate. Considering the choices in this town, this one is by far the best. We ate dinner at Anthony's Grill--great Mexican food! There's a McDonalds about 1/4 mile from the motel. Even Denny's has a good breakfast (no breakfast at the motel but there is coffee in the lobby and a coffee maker in... More

This hotel is run by a dedicated staff. The rooms are very clean and the bed slept well in our room. It is old but the price is also very good so no complaints there. My family stayed there for nearly a week while on business and the place began to feel like home. Mojave is very safe and quite... More

Very pleased with stay, clean and quiet for the money. We were just passing by heading to the Grand Canyon. In the morning we had breakfast at Denny's, great breakfast. Highly recommend both. Great customer service in both places.

Friendly reception & helpful staff who gave us a free upgrade even though the price was reasonable. Got a good size room, good lighting, clean & fresh, it had a wardrobe & drawers, coffee maker, frig., microwave, iron & hairdryer. Also had free breakfast that was basic, but adequate.

The room was very clean and offered amenities such as a fridge, tv, desk/chair, etc. I would return to this motel because it was comfortable and close to Boron where we were visiting friends. The owners made every effort to ensure that we were well cared for. When booking this motel be aware that it is an older building, but... More
