What distinguishes this Best Western from others we've stayed at is the friendly staff and great customer service. We needed to have a package delivered to the front desk, and the staff help with this was great. The employees were also very helpful with a couple of other requests. The breakfast is served in a large, comfortable space and features...

Very large and comfortable rooms, big TV, good breakfast. Now Mojave may not be your ideal destination but sometimes you need to stay there. This is a very nice place at a bargain price. Luckily for us, you can walk to Denny's, which was the ONLY restaurant open on Christmas night in Mojave.

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...

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.

This is a good place for a night stay, how ever it is noisy due to a train yard across the street and the ran all night witch was fine with me I like the sound of trains but if you don't they had free ear plugs at the front desk there was also an airport on the other side,...

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...

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...

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...

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.

“Most of the rooms are set back a bit from the street. Ask for a back or corner room.”
