We stayed in the Desert Inn for 2 nights on a driving holiday from Los Angeles to Chicago. The location could not be faulted - just s short walk to the fabulous Piazza. However, this is just an old fashioned motel which is not particularly clean. The noise of the dreadful air conditioning kept us awake all night, although I have to say, when we complained, the maintenance guy tried really hard to sort it for us. The adjoining restaurant was great for breakfast.
