I totally agree that I felt like cops would bang on the door looking for the missing lady...just like a movie set! Very clean & "Andy" the front desk owner was sweet & very polite. We were stuck in all the traffic when I5 was closed. Called ahead after reading YELP reviews--they had a room & even turned the wall heater on so when got there the room was warm! Would stay there again if we needed to stop in Mohave.

Needed a place to stay on short notice with a family emergency and the owner was extremely helpful.
The service was better then any 5 star hotel I have ever been in and I have been in many.
Service was great.....

This is an older motel remodeled nicely. The owner/manager was very nice and friendly. The motel room area was large but, like most old motels, the bathroom was small. It had a pedestal sink but no counter space. There were no towel bars anywhere in the room. My room just had a shower but that was fine by me.

Like the motels on State Route 58 there is no railroad noise. (RR noise would presumably affect the motels on State Route 14.) But there is highway noise since the motel is right on the edge of Business Route 58, which was the original Highway 58 before the bypass was put in. All the rooms face toward Business Route 58. The evening began noisily but by about 10 PM most of the traffic on Highway 58 had ceased so it was reasonably quiet.

My room had a flat screen television which would have been nice if it worked. But it did not work so no TV for me. Maybe you will get a working TV or maybe not. It would be nice if housekeeping would check to see that the televisions in the rooms worked before the locked the door for a guest.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time and writing a review. All of the flat screen tv's are brand new with over 100 HD channels. Since you had an issue turning on the tv, we hope next time you call the front desk so we can help you. We also have rooms with bathtubs, so please let us know next time that you wanted a room with that feature. Thank you.

I've stayed here several times over the past couple of years and have always been happy with the Desert Inn - it's clean, quiet and the people that run it are great. For someone like me looking for a nice, quiet place to crash after a day of offroading, this place is a great deal.

Room Tip: It's away from the train tracks so it's quiet!

I kept expecting a black Cadillac to role up and have two FBI agents get out and walk over to the desk clerk to ask him questions about a couple who were reportedly staying there. As a reader of this review you might think it a bad thing but I found the Desert Inn to be perfectly picturesque in a town that some would define as quite the opposite.
The staff member working that night was very courteous and our stay was (in some ways regrettably... no FBI) very quite and pleasant. We would stay there again in a heartbeat if we ever find ourselves in that part of Southern California again.

Hello Jason,

That is a very interesting review about the FBI, hahaha. Our motel is quiet and we hardly ever have any trouble with our guests. We appreciate you wanting to stay at our motel again. Hope to see you soon. Thank you very much for staying at the Desert Inn.
