A very good friend runs the Marfa film festival and with a pending earthquake and nuclear radiation impending we ( four women (one 12 year old) myself and four dogs) went out to the Mojave Sands to escape LA for a couple nights. We arrived late but as the saying goes better late than never as the Mojave Sands is... More

Since staying at Mojave Sands I have recommended it to everyone I know who's planning a trip to Joshua Tree. Not only is it exceptionally comfortable, with all the necessaries like luxuriously hot showers (even a steam shower in one room), supremely comfortable beds, adjustable heating / air conditioning etc - but it is a delight to stay in because...

It is not your usual Motel, but an ongoing work of art. The owner has been working on it for about 8 Years, and it shows. Great love to details like a collection of modernist furniture and little things.

Very Modern and simply rustic at the same time, the owner Blake takes pride in his establishment and is there personally to see to your needs. The place is small, only 5 rooms, it would be perfect to take over for a group, and I can imagine film crews and photo shoots taking over the place on a regular basis.... More

We stayed here Feb 2, 2011 in Suite 1. This little gem of a "motel" is on its way to joining the league of The Small Luxury Hotels of the World, without the room service. The Mojave Sands is great blend of stark modernism and homey, quirky, kitch. It is a work in progress. It is a creative blend of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mojave Sands Motel is a 1940's motel that was taken apart and reconstructed. The doors, windows, bed frames, hardware and some of the furniture, were created either on-site or by local crafts people. Reclaimed wood, steel and other materials were used wherever possible. There are two large suites with kitchens and steam showers and three unique, comfortable single rooms with queen beds. Each room has a private patio and water fountain. Located right in the middle of town and only minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave Sands provides a peaceful escape from the hectic pace of modern life, where one can come to recharge and enjoy the unique beauty of Joshua Tree. ... more   less
