I had planned to stay at this hotel for four days buy left after two. I have never written a hotel review but after repeated requests from this resort for communication about my complaints I felt I had to submit this. 1. The rooms were old/ dank/ loud with old noisy air conditioning units. 2. The pull-out sofa was very...

If you want a smaller, quiet, and more affordable room, this is it. Good location, close to stores in Palm Desert, with a very nice pool/jacuzzi area. The bathroom is definitely dated (and the wall heater there was a bit scary), as are the furnishings which seemed a bit worse for wear. Breakfast was ok, but very basic: coffee/tea, OJ,...

I cannot say enough good about this property. One of the greatest assets is the staff -- totally engaged in providing service to guests. No request is too small. The rooms are large and immaculately clean. Every detail is thought of. The atmosphere is low key and quiet, yet all the attractions of Palm Desert and other venues in the...

We enjoyed the clean rooms with the old motel characteristics. The inner courtyard was appreciated. It was quiet, clean, and a great place to relax. Good walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff were polite, helpful, and professional. Was a bit disappointed in the breakfast but the food there was sufficient and the coffee hot!

My husband and myself come to the desert for 5 months every year. My sister and her husband were in the area for a couple of days but did not want to stay with us as we had a small one bedroom. They booked this boutique hotel very close to us and were pleasantly surprised. The location is amazing, blocks...

I purchased a last minute deal from American Express and elected to stay at the Mojave Resort and was not disappointed at all. While the hotel is dated, it is well maintained, clean, and very comfortable. The staff is friendly, bed comfortable, and in a great location. Walk two blocks and you are in the heart of the palm desert...

The Mojave resort is a friendly, small, clen hotel with rooms situated around a pool and Jacuzzi. We had a room with kitchenette because we like to cook. Interestingly, we had to collect pots, pans, knifes etc. from the front desk. The garden is well kept, the pool is nice, and the best thing is: within half an hour drive...

Nice little retro hotel, only a block from shops restaurants etc. Place was clean, but quite dated, staff were great. Beds and pillows were adequate. Continental breakfast was bagels, prepackaged pastries,yogurt,fruit and cereal.

We stayed here for the first time since 2003 when we stopped in Palm Desert on our way to Arizona. The Mojave is is very nice place to stay, no question.
