I have stayed at this gorgeous little hotel about 6 times and plan on being a customer as long as the hotel is around. It is wonderful, funky, central to El Paseo and Native Foods (cool California vegan restaurant), easy drive to PS. The new (I can remember when it was sold) owners are incredibly hospitable--when my sweetie requested soy... More

I had moderate budget and very high criterias. After months of research, Mojave did seem to satisfy both. I did have doubts though, pulling into the parking lot. the hotel was less hip than I expected, and was glaringly orange in color everywhere (I was thinking branding gone wild?). Luckily, we were greeted with nice service. The receptionist who checked... More

Just came back from three lovely nights at the Mojave Resort and am wishing to be back soon. The resort gives the feeling of going back in time to a small private hotel. We had a double queen room that looked exactly like the pictures on the web. The 40s decor is stylish but very comfortable. We loved the retro... More

I must say that most of the reviews on TripAdvisor were very positive. Because of this, we booked a weekend at the Mojave. We were very unhappy with our experience and checked out after the first night. I strongly encourge you to choose another property. Here are a few of the things that we found extremely disappointing about the property:... More

Four nights at the Resort were fabulous: including the friendly, down to earth staff, the nice 40's retro room decor, the calming courtyard, and delicious coffee and continental breakfast in the morning. The room was solid and very quiet. I loved this, but it's not for those who need the trappings of luxury. If you like saying "hi" to other... More

We had a very quiet & relaxing 4-night stay at the Mojave. I think the first two nights we were there we had the whole place to itself (!), as Palm Desert was just starting to awake from it's summer slumber. We really lucked out, though - the temps were in the upper 80's to low 90's. Any photos you... More

We were in Palm Desert last weekend for two nights of doing just about nothing. With temperatures hitting 115 each day, and still 100 at 10 pm, doing nothing is about all that is possible! Nonetheless, this is Palm Desert's low season, due to the heat, and room rates are rock bottom. We loved this little gem. The beds were... More

If you are like me, a very particular yet not demanding vacationer you look for personal touches that set high standards and the Mojave does just that. Before I made our reservations I emailed and left vmail asking specific questions about the property and the amenities offered. Not only was my email answered prompty, I recieved a detailed vmail addressing... More

Bed had lovely crisp cotton sheets and was soooo comfortable. All rooms on ground floor around the pool with each having a patio area with a table and chairs. Complimentary lemonade and... More

Great little Hotel away from the main street. If your tired of those big hotels, then this is the place to go. They have a pool and jacuzzi, great coffee which is served every morning outside their lobby with continental breakfast. I love this place I will surely be a returning guest.
