This is an older hotel in a town with few choices for a nice place to stay. They have done a good job of keeping up with maintenance and refurbishment. Our assigned room was in a back corner where the noise was less. There is a 4-lane highway in front so one occasionally hears a loud semi truck. There is... More

Roof was leaking when I checked in. The kind staff immediately switched me to a room that did not have a leaky roof. She was very pleasant. The bed was very comfortable. I actually slept quite well. There was no body wash in the shower, but I could have used the soap bar that was provided.

Stayed just one night, whilst visiting Mojave Air and Space port (and Virgin Galactic) Definitely not the best or the cheapest, but did come with free breakfast (which I didn't actually have) and please note the Railway noise all night... but there is nowhere else in the area....

We stayed here on the night of 10/22. I wanted to say kudos to the owner & Manager for running an excellent hotel. We stayed in Room 101. Other than the walls being a little thin, because the room is located right next to the 2nd floor stairwell, our stay was clean, comfortable & without any exceptions. We could clearly... More

This was just a one night stop on our way to Death Valley and was a perfect stopping location. We had a very nice room and they have a good free breakfast. If you are a light sleeper, look for a place further away from the rail road tracks. The trains did not bother us but they do run all... More

We stayed here for one night. Rooms are nice. You can tell the hotel is old. The doors and walls show the age of this place. Beds need to be replaced. The decor was nice. The hotel rooms have had a face lift, but just like us humans, you can't deny your age. One thing that really bothered me was... More

The Staff was friendly and helpful and told us about the town of Mohave. The rooms were clean and comfortable and large. The breakfast was served in a separate building just for that purpose. It was quiet so a good night's rest.

We drive between the Phoenix area and our families in the Sacramento/Roseville area fairly often. We travel with our small/medium size dog and spend one night each way.

No problems. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Good value for the price. A needed stop at this location on a business road trip. Slept well. Would stay here again. Left before breakfast to get on the road so I can't say how the breakfast is.
