We booked the entire resort for the whole weekend. The weather was gorgeous. We hosted a pre wedding cocktail party for over 50 people and then had a beautiful wedding with 125 guests the next day. Everyone could not get over how wonderful the place was. The staff was fantastic. Looking forward to many anniversary stays in the future.

First off, I want to say that if you were looking for a low-key place to stay with a pool, hot tub, and nice, clean, well-maintained rooms in a great location walking distance from El Paseo, this place can't be beat. And while I have to admit I made these reservations in a rush and didn't research it thoroughly, for... More

My wife and I loved the Mojave Resort. The complex was the perfect size, and we loved all the amenities nearby. The rooms need a little sprucing up but they are clean, and for the price a great deal compared to area resorts. The pool area was very relaxing and provides enough shade and sun that you can sit out... More

I have been coming to the Mojave for several years and it just keeps getting better. Perfect for a low-key getaway. Wonderful fresh grapefruit, comfy beds, very helpful owner. Walking distance to hiking, shops, bars, restaurants. Definitely prefer the Mojave over the "Mod" across the street, which has an incredibly rude owner. Mojave all the way!

Dates - March 13 - 15, 2009 (two nights) Me, wife, daughter (age 8) I first wanted to stay at one of the many nicely reviewed boutique hotels in Palm Springs but after calling around I came to a few realizations: 1) they aren't interested in having children around; 2) I wasn't interested in the drive between Palm Springs and...

The Mojave Resort is a motel that has been modified to try to make it feel like a small boutique hotel. The owners have been partially successfully, but really the appeal of the Mojave are the location (steps away from the El Paseo shops and several excellent restaurants) and the price. The property is located on a street that runs... More

We, a family of four, stayed in two adjacent rooms in the middle of July - absolutely the middle of the low season in Palm Desert. To be honest, it is a mistake staying in Palm Desert at this time of the year, unless you want total peace and quiet or choose one of the several "Full Service" resorts. Several... More

It was a perfect place to have our semi-small wedding in May ,we rented all 23 rooms for the weekend. The configuration of the rooms around the courtyard allowed for everyone to get as much socializing or privacy as they wanted. Most of our wedding guests were able to stay at the hotel, and since it's only a block away... More

A delightful 40's style hotel in peaceful Palm Desert with spacious, comfortable rooms. The retro style made the resort stand out from the usual chain hotels. The only negative aspect was that we were only booked in for one night. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful and the location was quiet yet close to resturants and other local amenities....

There isn't much I could say that hasn't already been said. This is one of the best hotels I've ever had stayed at! It is such a sweet little hotel!
