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

...but I wanted to let you know that my experience with attempting to cancel our reservation was very very annoying. After many attempts to receive a cancellation confirmation from this hotel, via email and telephone call, I spoke to Mash on the phone who confirmed that my reservation was cancelled. However, today, I received a "thank-you" email from this hotel,... More

The hotel was everything I was hoping it would be based on what I'd read. The rooms are simply, but stylishly decorated, the property is well maintained and it was very relaxing. The hotel provides towels for the pool and hot tub as well as Motlon Brown shampoo/conditioner, etc in pumps (I appreciate not throwing away little single-serve bottles every... More

I love this little gem off of El Paseo in Palm Desert. Well situated, a five minute walk to shops, restaurants and art galleries. Spacious rooms with kitchenettes. Love the 50's feel and vintage style. Great price. Wonderful pool area. The Molton Brown bath accessories are divine.

I booked this knowing there would be days when my husband would be golfing and I would not have the car. The Mojave resort is a hop and a skip to El Paseo with all its shops and restaurants as well as walkable to many other amenities. It was built in 1956 so is an old style motel with 23... More
