Stayed there for a night with six guys, we took a few rooms, they only have five rooms anyway. The rooms are designed retro, and I mean to the last detail. They have an old record player in each room, with real cool records, from my time. Susan has done a great work and keeps the place tip top. We... More

I spent a night at the Mojave Sands after a few days of climbing and hiking in the national park and found it to be a tasteful and comfortable spot to recover and rest. The room was well appointed, the staff was friendly and the fountain in the courtyard outside my room gave my room a delicious white noise soundtrack.... More

Susan checked us in and gave us all the info we needed to orient ourselves. The suite was spacious and the whole place is crafted out of beautiful materials and the design is quite modern. Concrete, steel and glass. Nice interior decorating. Quirky design elements make it not quite private enough, although we were the only ones there so it... More

Ok, this place is Instagram gold. I spent 3 minutes unpacking and 45 darting about taking pictures of the place before the sun set behind the Joshua Tree mountains. I'm now writing this overlooking the fairylit central garden and listening to old Staples Singers vinyl on something called a 'Califone'. Brilliant. Having just stayed at the Ace Hotel in Palm...

The Mojave Sands is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. It did fall short on a couple items listed on their website - my room lacked the toaster and bose sound dock. The remote to open the gate did not work (checked with neighbors and they had same experience). This is only a problem if you want to leave... More

A really unique motel/inn out in Joshua Tree. Great minimalist modern decor and a nice rustic yard. The proprietor Susan is very nice and helpful. The only thing I wish is if there was a pool or hot tub on the property, but Susan told us that during the summer months guests can use a pool at one of the... More

The property is beautifully designed, and the landscaping is so cool. The garden is very relaxing. I think some minor changes would dramatically improve the experience as a guest. I would like to have had working WiFi as advertised, more lighting in the room, more information on the property, as other reviews have stated. ( I also left the keys... More

Just having returned from a night's stay at Mojave Stands, I'd like to share some thoughts on this property. There are indeed many amazing details, artwork hanging on the walls, and beautiful showers. The garden is very relaxing. Blake was working very hard to provide whatever was missing (speakers for the turntable, coffee for the coffee maker, sugar, half-and-half, a... More

I stayed at this ultra cool and comfy motel on January 5, 2013. I went to Joshua Tree with a large group of friends to attend a sound bath session at Integratron (http://www.integratron.com/6ComeOnIn/ComeOnIn.html) and we booked this motel and inhabited all of the 5 available rooms. What I loved most about this motel, was that I wanted to take a... More

My boyfriend booked a night here last year, and while overdue, it occurred to me to that I needed to rave about this place. It's just off of the main road, but once you get through the main gates you feel wonderfully isolated from the rest of the world. We booked a standard room, which came with a no-fills yet... More
