We just returned from the Mojave Resort after three days of rest and relaxation at this little gem in the desert. Steps from the trendy "El Paseo" shopping district, the Mojave takes you back in time as a retro, old school resort. From it's fresh, orange and white theme, to it's new, thick bath and pool towels, this place never... More

Managers were very accommodating (Joe and Mash). My girlfriend and I were there for Labor day getaway, adventure, shopping, romance and dining and found it all. Place is very are deco- old school layout and textiles but modern. Again the ever important and essential broadband/ Wifi. LCD TVs with lots of channels and a USB serial port . Coffee makers...

I stayed 3 nights at the Mojave Resort in July. This is low season, so the motel was super quiet. Walking distance (if you can handle the July desert heat!) to El Paseo street which has shops and restaurants. Room was clean but modest. We were right in front of the pool area, which was nice. Wi-fi was not working... More

It looks more like motel than resort. Room looks good at first, but when you look closer, everything is old. I would never stayed there alone. It looks a little bit scary. I don't think I will go there again.

My friend and I stayed here during Stagecoach weekend. Very cute little place. I love the retro look. We had a nice continental breakfast every morning. The staff was very polite. I would definitely stay here again! In fact, my friend and I were talking about returning in July!

The location of Mojave Resort is fabulous, walking distance from El Paseo is a feature that can't be beat. The staff is very friendly and the pool area is great. That being said, the rooms need new carpet, the kitchenette had one wine glass, one drinking glass, no paper supplies so a bit difficult to use for its intended purpose.... More

We checked in with Mash on Friday March 27. Fast and efficient process and we got the keys for all three rooms. The rooms were pretty much all the same and kind of disappointing. The carpeting was stained and the whole ambiance was kind of funky. One of the rooms had a very musty odor. The A/C unit in my... More

A great location in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the main shopping and dining street el paseo. Courteous staff. Little nice pool with plenty of chairs. Nice grass for kids to play. Quiet. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only negatives: Kitchenette was poorly stocked. And the bed was hard as a rock! I longed for a mattress topper. Despite... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in March and couldn't be happier. This is a small motel with about 20 rooms arrayed in a circular courtyard around a swimming pool that's ringed with mature trees, so you can find sun or shade all day long.Located a block off the east end of the El Passeo, it's an...

Mojave Resort is very nicely situated for the shops and restaurants on El Paseo. Nice quiet residential area. The rooms vary a lot but are all the same price so worth asking for a larger one with kitchen.. Helpful staff and adequate breakfast. Nice by the pool but pool pump and fridges could be quieter. Very comfy bed, noisy aircon.... More
