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.

We ended up here accidentally, after the hotel at which we had a reservation did not have the type of room we reserved. Everyone at the Best Western Desert Winds was very nice. I enjoyed the pool and wish that I had used it earlier (and more often) during my stay. The breakfast could have used a few more items that are suitable for diabetics (too much bread and sugary items). The AC in our room never cooled it down to below about 85 F, even though we left it running all day and all night and set it on the coolest temperature (60 F). The internet was spotty and didn't work with my iPhone very well at all. These are not major problems. I didn't starve at breakfast. I visited Mojave in the summer because I like the desert and I like heat. I was able to connect with the internet well enough to complete the tasks I needed to complete. Overall I enjoyed my stay and may very well stay here again.

Nice hotel with everything my family needed. The manager went way above the call of duty when our car broke on the way to vacation. He let us stay in the lobby after checkout and wait a few hours for the repair shop to finish fixing our car. After they declared our car dead He gave us a long ride to the next city to pick up a rental car and He allowed us to leave our broken car in the hotel parking lot and pick it up on the way home. It was very hot and the breakfast lady opened the breakfast area so we could get something to drink shortly after breakfast was over. The hotel offers breakfast, wifi and everything else you would expect but the staff was very nice and helped us get thru a miserable start to our vacation. The people working there made us fans of Best Western for life.

Excellent place to stay, don't let the train near by fool you, once your in the room you can't hear the noise plus the train doesn't run but during the day. Mojave is in middle of no where, but enough businesses in town for most of your needs. I recommend Mojave Cafe excellent food and friendly service, there is also Primo Burgers haven't tried it yet, but it's always busy, will visit soon.

This was an excellent rooming experience in Mojave and we did indeed experience some wonderful desert winds. The room was well-appointed, clean and everything in working order. The breakfast was delicious and well-prepared. The only problem was the water pressure was extremely low in the shower making it difficult to get the shampoo and soap off.
