(sorry for my English) After hours of hiking under hot sun, and after a few hours of drive, my kids really enjoyed the pool (open until 22h) ! I smiled when I heard them say 'it's the perfect world here', even though all the other hotels of our trip were much more expensive, luxurious. Since we came late, the short distance between the check-in counter, the car, the room, the laundry facility and the pool were really appreciated, especially in comparison to the hotel we went after: the gigantic Caesars Palace in Las Vegas (parking to check-in to room to pool: <10 min in BW Mojave and > 90 min in LV). We usually stay in expensive, luxurious hotels (I have a wife, haha). This one was inexpensive, simple, small, but we didn't need anything more (for example, I'm bringing milk and fruits - this hotel had a refrigerator while others, like the one in LV, didn't have one). A wife can be unnecessary costly, haha! Air conditioning was a little bit noisy. This is would probably the only negative thing (and maybe lack of milk at breakfast, IIRC). I really appreciated it. Overall great value, and highly recommended.. PS: The day after we realised my son forgot his favorite plush in the room. My wife called them; we know it was found. Since we just came home from our trip, I didn't do any follow-up, but I'm relatively confident it could be shipped back to Canada.

You won't be staying here for long as it's in the middle nowhere. It's a transit location. This is more of a Motel than hotel. Staff are friendly rooms are large clean and comfortable. It's about an hour to 6 flags and 3-4 hours to Death Valley so it suited us perfectly.

The staff was very friendly & helpful. The only thing that I was not happy with was the comfort of the bed, it was really hard. I really had a hard time getting comfortable and we were only there to sleep for a short time.

This was a good location just off of CA highway 58. Excellent outside appearance. Room was updated and very clean. A very nice breakfast was provided. There weren't a lot of options for dinner within a short distance but many options were available about 10-12 miles away. Would stay here again.

Very friendly staff. We had reservations for 14 people, 5 rooms at another motel in town that didn't workout. The manager gave us a discount on the rooms. They were very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was good. Would stay there again.

Stayed here with my family for a Softball tournament my daughter was in in Lancaster (30 minute drive from the hotel). We decided the $90/might + the 30 minute drive to Lancaster may be better than $200+ per night in a decent hotel in Lancaster. Due to the tournament most hotels were all booked and those that weren't were crappy or overpriced. This hotel was good for the price. We were there in July so it was 110 degrees each day we were there. We left the a/c on all day and the room was nice and cool when we returned. During the down time we used the pool which was great for the kids and really only lacked extra chairs (I think there were 5 total). Breakfast was ok, basic, but enough to grab something to go and they were open at 6am (which helped b/c our first morning we had to be at the field at 6:30). The hotel is easy to get to (right on the 14) and although the train tracks are right across the street, we never heard them. The room was very quiet overall (we were in room 102 which is located right behind the pool and the back wall of which faces the street and the railroad tracks). I would definitely recommend!

A clean, large room in town near restaurants. There is not much to choose from in this little town and this has to be one of the top choices. They have a small pool and an area to wash a car or motorcycle (which was being used by some very nice biker dudes). The breakfast was the general Best Western spread, nothing special but filling. The front staff was very kind and helpful in regard to restaurant suggestions (very limited). Even though the train runs right across the street from the hotel the air conditioner noise drowned it out so no sleep lost. Be sure to ask for the second floor as it can be noisy on the first floor (enter from the outside).

My first impression of this hotel was poor. There are two buildings with two separate parking lots - both old and not very appealing. The room I was in had a depressing brown bedspread and thin sheets, the handicap shower sprayed all over and the soap dispenser was broken. BUT the staff was excellent - very friendly and professional. I quite happy with my stay.

after a 250 mile drive from Vegas it was great to find the hotel so easily...Checked in in minutes . Our room was 105 beside the pool. Standard was up to what is expected from Best Western. It was really nice to have breakfast served in a separate room and not in the lobby as seems to be the case in most places. nothing disturbed our sleep even though the train track is across the street we didn't really hear it. All in all a delightful stay. and a Dennys less than a block away....Mojave does not have a lot to offer but take a ride through the valley of wind turbines to the little town of Tehachapi

Our room was a couple of doors down from the front office, so we expected it to be busy but it was actually quiet. It was a pleasant one-night stay. The front desk staff were nice and breakfast was the usual. Since we headed out early the next day, they took note and prepared us breakfast sandwiches for the road. Apparently it is the best place to stay if your going to a track day Willow Springs. Other attendees who stayed closer to the track were not happy but we satisfied.
