The hotel is an absolute gem in the desert. The location, decor & hotel staff were near perfect to say the least. I am a travel agent that has seen and stayed in hundreds of properties ranging from moderate motels to five star deluxe hotels. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, It is truly a unique... More

I just returned from an extended Memorial Weekend trip with a group of gals who've been getting together for the last 29 years. Our regular hotel shut it's doors last year, forcing us to find a new location and am I ever glad we did! We found the Mojave Resort - and it's terrific! There are 21 rooms in this... More

The Mojave truly is a little gem in the desert. I loved so much about it -- the hip 40's style, our roomy room (with kitchenette and dressing/bath area), the comfortable bed, the friendly and accommodating staff (thanks, Joe!), the cleanliness, the lovely courtyard with pool and spa tub and massage tent, the grapefruit trees, the nice breakfast we could...

We stayed at The Mojave for an entire month. We found the employees (Mash, Anthony, Joe) to be especially helpful with any required extras. The rooms are reasonably good size, and are very clean. The kitchens are minimal, but adequate for a couple. The king sized bed in our room was very comfortable. The maid service (daily) was very good... More

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
