We have returned to this motel on our trips through the desert, twice yearly or more, and for almost ten years now. We have found the rooms always to be spotlessly clean, which is our main issue for any motel. The rooms are furnished more than adequately; we always have a king size bed - sufficient for deep sleep.

Nice place for a small town. Fridge in room with a freezer. Chad at the front desk was very very nice and took care of everything we asked . I would stay here again in a heartbeat . It is a bit dated, but the room was clean

We had a cute little room here for two nights. It was very clean, with modern furnishings, a flat screen tv, fridge, microwave and clock. Continental breakfast is included. From here, we visited Red Rock Canyon State Park and Bakersfield (Kern County Museum, California Living Museum) and returned to Mojave via the scenic Highway 178 which follows the Kern River....

An older style motel but spotlessly clean and comfortable. I arrived fairly late, spent all day chasing trains but was welcomed by the staff. I had a room at the back away from the road so it was fairly quiet. I slept well. King size bed, Good size TV with cable and a coffee maker was in the room. I... More

The Desert Inn reflects the old-time motels of the ‘30’s but the current owners have painted and fixed up the accommodation that made our room spotless inside. Although typical size for that era’s room, there was a table and 2 chairs, a comfortable king sized bed, desk, microwave, refrigerator, coffee service and still some room to move around. The free...

This is an older motel but don't let that deter you. The owner takes PRIDE in the place and it shows. Very fairly priced exceptionally clean. My wife and I stayed here while passing through the area and would not hesitate to do so again.

Stayed one night here while railfanning in the area. Didn't need much in the way of amenities and found the Desert Inn fit the bill - not in a bad way though. Reasonably priced clean comfortable room and very pleasant staff. HUGE fridge if that is important. DirecTV a plus as well. I would stay here again.

We stayed for one night. I had let the owner know we would be arriving late and he had courteously gone in to the room and turned on the heating for us before our arrival. The motel is small, clean and quiet. We were unaware of any train activities or other guests (we saw the cars, just never heard people).... More
