“Working in town for a few weeks !”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Found this excellent motel in Mojave by searching the net, & it had the best reviews . I reserved three rooms fo myself & co workers and we love it, am here one week now and may be here another but depends on work schedule , the owner and his wife are very helpful, and will give you all the help and advise you need to make your stay comfortable , the price is right and you could not ask for better, I travel all over California with work and have to say am impressed to find digs like this in the desert ! The only negative thing I can say about the desert inn is that if your a working man and need to leave early in the morning - the breakfast does not start until 7am and you may miss it like me and my guys did, but owner will work with you and put it on a little earlier if needed ! Enjoy your stay folks :))

Room Tip: I had room 5, it was perfect for me , very quite in the corner, but laundry room is next door and is...

We stayed here one night on our way up to the national parks from las vegas(early august).
After a long drive it certainly was a real welcome and needed break and Andy(owner) and the desert inn didn't disappoint. A warm and friendly welcome from Andy and shown to our room with 2 huge beds.The room was modern and very clean with super comfortable beds (the kids had their best nights sleep of the trip here!)with great cable tv.
Plenty of food options too and also a good continental breakfast the next morning.
Would certainly recommend it to anyone

Hello Ricky,

Thank you for staying with us on your way to the National Parks. That's really nice to read that your children had the best nights sleep at our motel! We've recently upgraded our tv's to flat screens with over 140 HD channels. Now we are going to be upgrading our beds as well. Thank you again for staying at the Desert Inn.

We stayed here one night and we enjoyed it. Everything was as advertised, the personnel very friendly, clean room provided with all amenities like TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, coffee and free wifi. Ice available for free. Very quiet night.
The value/price ratio is great. Thank you, we'll surely come back again.

ample parking; courtesy, professional, welcoming, and sincere staff, check in made effortless by Andy; quiet room with a/c, fresh towels; toiletries including in-wall hairdryer; and the in-room coffee was yum. Continental breakfast was abundant and quiet delicious. Many thanks to all at Desert Inn Mojave for doing it right!

I have stayed in this inn few times after a long and hard day in local race track driving my car or motorcycle. For the price it offers a clean room with all needed basic amenities (window ac, Newer tv with cable, refrigerator, coffee maker, good lighting, clean sheets, clean bathroom....), never experienced a bad neighbore, it is off main drag to allow a peaceful night of sleep. It does appear and feel like an owner operator property where husband and wife do make a best effort to offer a good experience to their guests.

I frequently stay in Mojave for business reasons, now I stay regularly at Desert Inn because all the other hotels and motels have one problem, very noisy trains throughout the night. Desert Inn is in a perfect location off the highway to enjoy a nice quiet and restful night in very clean nicely furnished rooms with free Wi-Fi, flat tv, micro wave, fridge, coffee mkr, aircondition and very nice and friendly service. Their rates are reasonable too.

This is a tiny hotel in a tiny town, and one of the few off the main strip and away from the ever present train line. Good sized room, and a plentiful supply of ice. Front office guy was very friendly and was able to recommend a good place to eat in town. All in all, considering this was one of the cheapest motels in which I stayed on my trip, I considered it very good value and would not hesitate to stay here if I’m ever in the area again.
