I stayed for two nights over Memorial Day weekend, and had a large, clean, comfortable room. However, there were a couple of maintenance issues that need attention and may apply to other rooms which (as I believe mine was) aren't occupied as frequently as others. First, the refrigerator in my first room was inoperable--somebody had swiped the control switch out... More

In an out of the way desert setting and what appears an older property I was delighted. Service was congenial and the room was absolutely first class: nicely furnished, fridge and microwaye and comfortable bed. Very clean. Good breakfast. What more can you ask for in a one night stopover hotel while driving through?

Ricardo at the desk is very cordial. The room was clean. I heard the traffic and trains but they certainly did not detract from the stay or sleep. Appreciate the effort to keep it green, but how about thicker paper plates at the good breakfast.

Okay, this is not a 5 star hotel, but when a friend and I were spending a day at the Willow Springs track, we wanted to stay nearby before our long day of motorcycle riding. The Best Western is a little dated, the bed was a bit hard, and there's nothing very scenic about all the asphalt surrounding the place.... More

I suspect there aren't many choices in Mojave in the high desert. This Best Western is within the average for the BW brand. Easy and clear check in; ditto room; ditto breakfast. We only spent one night here.

My husband stayed here traveling on business for the University of TN. The front desk was not able to provide a receipt to allow him to get reimbursed! Same problem at the Best Western Burbank Airport! If you pay prior to the date you stay they can not give you a receipt. We have never had this problem with other... More

The staff of this hotel is very friendly. The appearance of this hotel can use a little update. This hotel is located near a railroad and airport. Although noise is not a big problem, there are occasional train and helicopter noise throughout the stay.

Excellent check in, check out. Pool and a hot tub! Breakfast is wonderful, very plentiful. The room is very nicely appointed, clean and has all amenities. The water pressure in the shower could use some help though. Still a great value. An oasis in the desert.

Mojave looks a bit rough, but the Best Western is a nice place. Room was freshly remodeled, clean, and well appointed. WiFi worked well. Fridge and microwave were included. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. You do get highway and railroad noise, but the A/C covered it up nicely. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again.
