This was a fantastic place for a stopover. The rooms are simple but perfectly comfortable with everything you could need! Good bed, flat screen TV (great selection of channels), microwave, fridge, free Wifi and most importantly, very clean. The management were very welcoming (even late at night). The warm room was a nice lovely surprise. Highly recommended!

Hello,

We appreciate the kind words you wrote about the Desert Inn. We try to offer as many amenities that the big hotel chains offer at a lower price. We try to upgrade our motel where ever we can to assure our guests have a great stay while traveling through Mojave. Thank you for staying at the Desert Inn.

My wife and I spent a night at the Desert Inn while on a road trip through southern California. The room is certainly nothing fancy, and if I were looking for a luxurious place to relax for several hours each day, then maybe I'd pay more for a place with more amenities. But if you're simply looking for a place to spend a night when all you really need is a comfortable and clean room, you can't go wrong here. The management was very pleasant, and made it clear that the satisfaction of their guests is very important to them. Highly recommended.

Back again for a one night stay a few weeks ago. Probably have stayed here at least 8 times in the last 5 years. Wonderful managers who greet you with a smile and extra clean rooms. They even turned on the heat an hour before I was to arrive on a very cold night. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, they now have added flat screen tv and direct tv access. I will be back again in another month on my way south.

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.....
