I absolutely loved this place. It is definitely is not "upscale" in terms of amenities. If you are a fan of camping, it definitely has some outdoorsy elements - but I might describe it more as "glamping". Indoor sleeping area - trailers which are individually themed (we stayed in the Sweet - which consisted of large couches and mirrors on... More

Hicksville is a unique place. If you're looking for 5 star (or even 3 or 4 star) accommodations, this is not it. But if you're looking for a fun, quirky place to stay, then I would recommend it. We spent one night at Hicksville in late December. We stayed in the Fifi trailer. The décor is fun, and is exactly... More

After seeing the website we where very excited to make the trip out to Joshua Tree to stay at this unique place. We loved the concept! From L.A., the drive took about 5 hours - through holiday traffic. We arrived, at the Tiki Hut, shortly before sunset and where aghast by what we found. Frankly, the Tiki Hut is a... More

My friends and I stayed a couple times, and the place is incredibly unique and special. Unfortunately the staff and later owner/ manager, Morgan, ruin the whole experience. They refuse any consideration for arriving late, regardless of a breakdown, car accident, etc. They also have zero communication between the staff on site and guests, however do a great job charging...

Left this place within 20 minutes of arriving earlier tonight as we were throughly disappointed with the condition of the Tiki Hut. You can take good pictures and use pretty words but we felt mislead upon arrival. Smoke and mirrors. Called the owner to discuss and he wasn't interested in an amicable resolve and offered us nothing towards a refund... More

This place is weird but so awesome. It's in the middle of the desert, the weather is mega unpredictable so bring blankets and warm clothes as well as a bathingsuit. The woman at the front desk Christie is frickin hysterical. Made me laugh so hard. The FiFi Trailer is so cute... it's not glamping so don't expect the ritz but... More

First of all Joshua Tree is an amazing place to visit, for the Town, for the National Park and for the Desert. The location of the Hicksville trailer Palace fits into all of these surroundings perfectly and they are only a short drive away. You already know this place is cool, and it is! Everyone is there to have a... More

Our annual trip to Hicksville Trailer Palace was once again fantastic. This year we found added to the fun a putt-putt course, video arcade games and a new trailer! The Pee Wee. The original gypsy wagon from the movie. This year our group stayed for 2 days which is really the best way to enjoy this place. With the policy... More

Hicksville is a trip! My boyfriend, myself and three friends stayed Monday through Wednesday in the later part of May. We rented the Cramps, Pony and Fifi trailers. All were unique and had something special to offer. The layout of Hicksville is splendid with a pool at the center, an amazing jukebox, archery, hot tub, an outdoor dining area with... More

I stayed here in November for a girls trip to the desert - we had a great time. The staff was really nice and the accommodations were uniquely great - a teepee, pool, archery, outdoor kitchen, etc. The trailer was also great - clean and comfortable! We had a great time, the shared bathroom was clean as well. Overall -... More
