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

This place is ideal for folks coming in for the night. It was super clean, quiet, and charming. The staff members were incredibly nice, and seem to really care about your stay here. The bed was comfortable, the tv was huge, and the bathroom was clean. I don't know what else folks are looking for if they're stopping for the... More

We stayed here after travelling through Death Valley from the east. Good stopping off point and this motel is a good value. Nothing fancy, central location, very clean, and very helpful owner/staff. We'd stay again if in the area.

The property is older so we were very surprised at how clean, modern, and comfortable it was on the inside. Flat screen TV with Direct TV and multiple HBO channels, 4-ft. tall refrigerator/freezer, comfortable bed with new linen and bedspread... The owners are very friendly and accommodating.

The rooms are clean with all you could want. However the motel is in need of a complete redo especially outside. Larger then Motel 6 or 8 's but ambiance really low. I case you didn't already know, it's the windiest place on earth!

Hello, Thank you for writing that the Desert Inn is "Clean." You wrote a complete redo especially outside? What are you referring to by that? We are consistently making improvements to our motel. We've recently added brand new mattresses, 32" flat screen t.v.'s, refrigerator with freezer, curtains etc... We are always open to suggestions. You wrote "Not a 4 rating"... More

The rooms are clean and nice. The owners are very nice too. They have air conditioning, Wi-Fi , Direct-TV (with some premium channels), coffee pot, microwave , ironing table and iron, and flat screen TVs. There is a park across the street with water toys and close to stores. All above my stay was very enjoyable!
