I thought there was nothing worse than dozing off after a long day only to have noises from the water pipes loudly awaken us, then repeat every 10 minutes until we gave up and decided to get moving. Then I got into the shower only to be scalded when someone flushed a toilet within five rooms of us. Clearly a...

Everything is comfortable and more than adequate. Considering the choices in this town, this one is by far the best. We ate dinner at Anthony's Grill--great Mexican food! There's a McDonalds about 1/4 mile from the motel. Even Denny's has a good breakfast (no breakfast at the motel but there is coffee in the lobby and a coffee maker in...

This hotel is run by a dedicated staff. The rooms are very clean and the bed slept well in our room. It is old but the price is also very good so no complaints there. My family stayed there for nearly a week while on business and the place began to feel like home. Mojave is very safe and quite...

Very pleased with stay, clean and quiet for the money. We were just passing by heading to the Grand Canyon. In the morning we had breakfast at Denny's, great breakfast. Highly recommend both. Great customer service in both places.

Friendly reception & helpful staff who gave us a free upgrade even though the price was reasonable. Got a good size room, good lighting, clean & fresh, it had a wardrobe & drawers, coffee maker, frig., microwave, iron & hairdryer. Also had free breakfast that was basic, but adequate.

The room was very clean and offered amenities such as a fridge, tv, desk/chair, etc. I would return to this motel because it was comfortable and close to Boron where we were visiting friends. The owners made every effort to ensure that we were well cared for. When booking this motel be aware that it is an older building, but...

I picked this motel because it was rated "1 of 8" in Mojave at the time I booked. The facility is very old and outdated. Our rooms were extremely small and crowded - had to walk sideways to get around the bed to the bathroom. Breakfast was cereal and prepackaged pastries. On the other hand, the management was friendly and...

We chose this place based on positive TripAdvisor reviews, but we were disappointed. Our room looked old and rundown, and it seemed as though nobody had been inside for a very long time. The smoke detector was chirping (dead battery) and the toilet didn't flush properly -- it had been "repaired" by somebody who clearly doesn't understand how to repair...

We stayed here two nights, until while smoking outside I was questioned if I was smoking in the room. But I went to pay for a third night anyway... then was asked if my credit card was actually mine. I normally only post here to give good reviews, so this one's a first. The fact is the new managers are...

Stayed a couple of nights here while exploring the area. If you just need a basic room, then this will fit your needs. The room was clean and comfortable. It was nice having a fridge to keep drinks and food cold. I would stay here again.
