We wanted something different and quiet after attending the music festival. We had the end suite with the kitchen and outdoor shower. As stated by others the room was a mix of industrial and vintage. The bed was very comfortable but don't count on sleeping in. A couple of the windows in the bedroom had coverings to filter the light... More

This is Joshua Tree and the five stars are for the service, design, and comfort of this establishment relative to everything else in the area. Blake, the proprietor is a visionary. The Mojave Sands is the physical manifestation of his ideas and concepts in design down to the most minute details. If you ever find yourself in Joshua Tree you... More

If you're planning on exploring the breathtaking natural landscape that is Joshua Tree National Park, treat yourself to some post-hiking R&R at Mojave Sands. The place actually mimics nearby J-Tree in having so many unique vintage finds, zen touches and an utterly relaxing atmosphere. The steam showers in the room are unreal, especially after a day in the hot sun.... More

The Mojave Sands was a truly lovely experience more like staying in an eclectic friend's guest house than a hotel. The owner, Blake, has spent the last 9 years renovating the 5 rooms with such artistic and regional architectural touches (large overhangs on the private porches, intense steam showers, small water fountains, little nooks & crannies filled with bizarre flea...

I have Trip Advisor to thank for finding the gorgeous Mojave Sands Motel. All the reviews are right on! It's an intimate, beautifully-designed place and the owner Blake (and his staff) are wonderful. We went up for a one-night getaway from the L.A. area and loved staying in the largest suite on the end. Great design--a mix of industrial and... More

We booked 5 nights at the end of January, using the online reservation tool, at the Mojave Sands, looking forward to an adventure, based on TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews. The hotel looks exactly as the photos indicate (always a nice relief). It was a bit tricky figuring out how to access in the dark, as the property is surrounded by... More

We had decided to go to Joshua Tree National Park and looked around a lot of different options of where to stay. The Mojave Sands became the first choice when I saw that all the rooms had record players and records to play. My partner loves vinyl and while a room here was a bit expensive I thought it would...

I'll echo some of the other reviewers and say I was torn about writing this review: with just 5 awesome rooms, my first instinct was to want to keep this place a secret! If you're looking for a beautiful, serene and altogether meaningful desert experience in Joshua Tree, look no further. Our suite had so many fun decoration details that... More

with almost no planning, our stay went exactly as planned. the design of the place was extraordinary. an artist's conception of a motel. we barbecued in the large courtyard (with blake's charcoal). lit the large brazier and kept warm while drinking beers and staring at the stars. later enjoyed hot showers and listened to old cowboy records, cuban music, and...

No corporate chain motel here. Perfect match to our JT experience! From the warm heater next to the toilet to the creative lighting, everything inside and out had a unique feel. Clean and affordable. Highly recommended.
