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!

MOJAVE DESERT INN Just the basics, but the basics done above and beyond - by a kind couple who genuinely want to see that you have a comfortable night under their roof. The room was crisp and clean.

I'm back at the Desert Inn after a couple of years. I'm staying here because it is the best place in Mojave. Here's why: Excellent service -the owners are friendly and helpful, and respond immediately to requests. This weekend they accepted and held a valuable package when I wasn't even there yet. When I arrived very late, my check in... More
