I have stayed at this property 3 times and have been happy there. I traveled for business so never spent the days here, only nights. It's a great location,close to the Paseo where there are many great restaurants. The complimentary breakfast is probably the worst I have experienced in any hotel, but then, the price of the hotel is budget.... More

My wife and I needed an a place to stay, at short notice, on New Years Eve. The condo that we'd rented had no water supply so we were in a bind. After phoning around we managed to find a room at the Mojave Resort (they had a guest check out early). Mash, the lovely guy who was on duty,... More

This was our second time here and we just love it and all of it's 1960's Palm Springs splendor. Awesome location. You can walk right around the corner to El Paseo. Great staff. If you are a gym rat, you can go to Worlds Gym which is about 3 miles away and great. We got the kitchenette again. Super convenient.... More

Decided to stay at this reported "trendy gem" on our road trip home. Admittedly we were tired as this was our last stop on our trip home. We arrived to find a very old, worn hotel. I'm always up for an adventure and had booked here because it has good trip advisor reviews. It was quite a ways off of... More

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
