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

Still the place to stay in Palm Desert. A five minute walk to El Paseo and all the shops, dining, and entertainment your heart desires. It is like stepping back in time to you own private oasis. The staff are first rate, the grounds immaculate, the rooms are comfortable, and the price is unbeatable.

Love the Mojave Resort! We booked the entire property for a weekend birthday. Having our guests occupy the entire hotel was brilliant. The staff took great care to make sure our guests were comfortable and fully enjoyed their stay. The rooms are large and well appointed in vintage furniture and decoration. Our room had a real fireplace which we used... More

Loved this place. Super retro and great location. We got a room with a kitchen which made it even more convenient. We have twin 6 year olds and the set up was just perfect. Each room opens up to a pretty courtyard with a pool, Jacuzzi and some green space. Super kid friendly. Paseo is right around the corner for... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night for his high school reunion that was at a restaurant nearby. The hotel was within walking distance to the restaurant. When we drove up we felt the hotel would be dated but it was quite updated. It was very clean and well kept. The rooms were nicely decorated and the bed... More

If you're looking for a truly classic desert oasis experience, you have found it in the Mojave Resort. It is a terrific departure from the chain hotels. Fun, interesting, charming…exactly what you'd hope for on your desert getaway. The rooms are furnished with mid-century style, and the pool and spa are right out of the movies. All the restaurants and... More

Thank you Groupon and thank you Mojave! My kids and I were just at the tail end of our Cali trip (before heading up to Utah), and we arrived late in the evening from LA and although it was dark, I felt as if I had arrived at a lovely tropical resort. The cool mid-century and understated vibe was just... More

My husband and I wanted a quick getaway from home, before going back to work. We love palm springs but wanted something alittle more slow pace and within our budget. I scrolled thru the internet and found and read the reviews and their rates were Perfect, so we took a chance. Wow, we found our Heaven of Relaxation. Everything of... More

This is a cute little trip into the past. For the price it's hard to beat. We had a suite with a doable kitchenette that probably dated back to the fifties. They gave us more kitchen stuff upon request. They did have a sparse breakfast. At this price we cooked our own omelet and drank a cup of their coffee.... More

We stayed for three nights & will definitely return again! This little place is like stepping back in time. It has been totally remodeled & is really clean! The small kitchen is perfect for making small meals or snacks. The pool is clean & the water is warm. This is not a party place so if privacy is important, don't... More
