Visited here for one night in February 2015 having driven from San Francisco, briefly stopping for lunch in Carmel. The journey was Trecherous! torrential rain/snow through the Tehachapi mountains and pitch black so we were very relieved to get here.
It was extremely quiet, but the receptionist was very helpful. Unfortunately we were too late for food and all the local takeaways were closed so could only use the vending machines!
The room though - wow. A full-on suite with 2 queen beds. It was the best room of our holiday, better than the room we had the next night at Luxor in Las Vegas. The bathroom too was lovely, everything was clean and felt new. Great big TV with a remote in a little net bag. We had a perfect nights sleep.
The next day you appreciate how isolated this place is. It's a stunning location but there's truly hardly anything around. Desert and mountains - a Macdonalds a few gas stations and a supermarket - that's about it. It was a stunning place to wake up though having arrived at night in the pouring rain :)
Breakfast was cool - make your own waffles etc with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal options, yogurt. All fine. And away we went on our way up towards Lone Pine (but peeling off through Death Valley) well rested and fed.
Really lovely staff, reasonable price, SUPERB room, food fine, isolated but spectacular location - a real gem in the middle of nowhere and would make a great base for exploration of the Mojave region, or indeed - on the way Death Valley. less
