Mojave Resort was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted an inexpensive place to stay that was walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Palm Desert. It's not fancy but they have a nice pool area and a simple breakfast in the mornings. The style and decor is very mid-century modern, appropriate for the desert. I stayed in... More

Boutique hotel, one story - very clean and quiet, hidden in a quiet neighborhood yet a couple blocks from shopping. Nice continental breakfast. Pool was great, goes from shallow to deep. Staff is very nice. Very reminiscent of bungalows in Key West, Florida! Bed was great, 1950's style but updated. We will stay there again, it beats a big fancy... More

This place is a real gem. It's a shame that we are not having a bit longer to make more use of the pool and setting. It's very nice, clean, well-tended and is really peaceful. The staff are welcoming. We are a family of four and had a room with two double beds. The room was clean and we found... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during the week. It was very clean and very peaceful. I'm assuming it is busier on the weekend. We were able to have the pool pretty much to ourselves. The beds were comfortable. It is a great deal for the price. I would go there again for a relaxing getaway.

This updated classic motel in downtown Palm Desert just off the main street has loads of personality. Beautiful inner courtyard with pool and nice landscaping. Easy parking along the outside. It's a little quirky though. The bathrooms are pretty old school. The kitchenette was just functional. The furnishings were unique, we had a rock base lamp and cute chair and... More

My husband and I spent one night here while in town for the BNP Paribas Open. The hotel is located one or two blocks behind El Paseo Drive in a residential neighborhood, which lends to its sense of privacy from the "strip." The courtyard is gated and requires a key for entry. The owner is a very friendly guy, fun... More

The magnificent location, the small but intimate setting, the peace and quite just off El Paseo, in a setting where you almost imagine the Rat Pack hanging out. The staff is on incredibly personable and there to help with anything you need. The morning breakfast builds a little community of guests. It is small and homey and charming.

We got to spend four nights here and really enjoyed the quiet, oasis like feeling. The room was comfortable and roomy and had a refrigerator, stove and microwave. If you really want to cook, they will provide you with pots and pans. I didn't because we were about two blocks from El Paseo and all the shops and restaurants. The... More

We spent four weeks at the Mojave Resort, a peaceful oasis with a pool area in the center. All nice 24 rooms in bungalow style are faced to a wonderful and well-kept garden. The location in quiet neighborhood and next to the El Paseo, is a perfect place to recover and to enjoy the wonderful climate of the California desert.... More
