Super easy to get to. Rooms are large, clean, and bright. Nice DVD selection too. Staff is super warm and helpful. Great spot for a solo trip or a stay with friends. Close to 29 Palms, Joshua Tree restaurants, and The Park.

Loved this place our first visit so came back again. Close to the park and yet tucked away so feels like an oasis. Comfortable rooms with lovely grounds for star gazing, horseshoes, and relaxing. Spotted roadrunner, quail, lizards, doves, and tons of hummingbirds this trip. Grills and kitchenettes make it easy to have dinner "at home" after a day in... More

This visit to Spin an Margie's was to celebrate my husband's recent retirement. We also wanted to disconnect from busy-ness and get into a more contemplative place. The garden was lit up with birds and desert flowers and we pondered our afternoons away. The little kitchens are fully equipped, and the owners really enjoy keeping things clean and up to... More

My husband and I took a 2 day trip to Spin and Margies just to get away for awhile and relax before our first little baby arrives in a couple of weeks. We had such a relaxing time in the most peaceful environment. We highly recommend this lovely little getaway spot!

If you are anyplace in the area, this is the place to stay, if you can get a room. I've stayed at the Best Western and it's OK, but Spin & Margie's is far more interesting and very unique. If you prefer new "plastic" places then stay elsewhere.

This was our second time staying at Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway - we're so lucky to have found their quaint "haciendas" - it secluded, quiet and just very comfortable. Both trips we stayed because we went to concerts up at Pappy and Harriet's (another gem!). We look forward to staying there again soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There were only two shortcomings, both subjective: 1. The bed wasn't wonderful, but I suspect another couple might say it was perfect, and; 2. We never met either Spin or Margie! I wish we had been able to personally communicate how much we enjoyed the property and gardens. Otherwise, we had a lovely and restful... More

The best place to stay in Joshua Tree!! The suites are wonderful. The staff is fantastically accommodating. The grounds are a great place to hang and explore. If you are headed to the desert, spend a few nights at Spin and Margie's! You won't regret it.

We are visitors from Switzerland and have been now for the fourth time at Spin and Margies. The location out in the desert in a large and beautiful desert garden is unique. The units are comfortable and decorated in desert stile. The park entrance is very close which makes it easy to observe sunrise and sunset in the park or... More

The location, just 3 miles outside Joshua Tree National Park, and the uniquely designed hacienda-style suites (sleeping 2-6) dressed in unflinching Southwest colours, with kitschy wild west bits and pieces and Mexican fabrics, would have been enough to make Spin and Margie's Desert Hide-A-Way a place to always return to be charmed. But, best of all, were the proprietors Mindy... More
