I was pleased with the room. It had nice bedding, a good TV with many channels, not too noisy. I could hear the train, but it seemed to stop at night. The bed was comfortable, a major plus to me. Pillows on the King bed were regular, which I prefer. The room was spacious. The bath was old, but that...

The hotel was remarkably clean inside and out. There were a bunch of construction / railroad workers staying there and the place had a great amount of litter every night, Every morning when I went out to walk my dog it was spotless again. It is very obvious that these people care about their guests. The breakfast was decent and...

I stayed for two nights over Memorial Day weekend, and had a large, clean, comfortable room. However, there were a couple of maintenance issues that need attention and may apply to other rooms which (as I believe mine was) aren't occupied as frequently as others. First, the refrigerator in my first room was inoperable--somebody had swiped the control switch out...

In an out of the way desert setting and what appears an older property I was delighted. Service was congenial and the room was absolutely first class: nicely furnished, fridge and microwaye and comfortable bed. Very clean. Good breakfast. What more can you ask for in a one night stopover hotel while driving through?

Ricardo at the desk is very cordial. The room was clean. I heard the traffic and trains but they certainly did not detract from the stay or sleep. Appreciate the effort to keep it green, but how about thicker paper plates at the good breakfast.

Okay, this is not a 5 star hotel, but when a friend and I were spending a day at the Willow Springs track, we wanted to stay nearby before our long day of motorcycle riding. The Best Western is a little dated, the bed was a bit hard, and there's nothing very scenic about all the asphalt surrounding the place....

I suspect there aren't many choices in Mojave in the high desert. This Best Western is within the average for the BW brand. Easy and clear check in; ditto room; ditto breakfast. We only spent one night here.

My husband stayed here traveling on business for the University of TN. The front desk was not able to provide a receipt to allow him to get reimbursed! Same problem at the Best Western Burbank Airport! If you pay prior to the date you stay they can not give you a receipt. We have never had this problem with other...

The staff of this hotel is very friendly. The appearance of this hotel can use a little update. This hotel is located near a railroad and airport. Although noise is not a big problem, there are occasional train and helicopter noise throughout the stay.
