I've been coming here for three years. Every time...every time, I'm impressed by the attention to detail and the laid-back beauty of the experience. If you're looking for a Five-Star hotel, this isn't it. Having had experience with those sorts of places, I'd pick this first and every time, though. Highly recommended!

Wow! Your head will "spin" at the gorgeous colors in the room and Spins photography is stunning. Margie has thought of everything that you will need for a very comfortable stay. We watched the full moon all night in room #5. Both room # 4 & #5 were quiet, private and very welcoming. This is simply a great place to... More

We loved staying here. The whole property is full of all sorts of whimsical, artistic touches, and the suite we stayed in (#4) had more of the same: great tile work, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, art work, etc. Very comfy and peaceful. Really appreciated the sitting area in the bedroom/living room and the well-stocked kitchen. Easy drive to town and... More

We always favor local business if we can on road trp, and Spin & Margie's was one of the best run that we have encountered. It features a 4-unit compound within an enclosed pretty desert patio and a 5th alongside. We rented the largest (#1) 2BR/1BA, spacious living room/dining room, private yard plus a very fully equipped and spotless kitchen.... More

This place is charming! We had Mohave Wanderer (Suite #2) and found it had all the comforts of home. Very well organized with everything we could possibly need for our weekend getaway. The patio area and desert garden is a lovely place to explore and enjoy. Nice, private location, but close to Joshua Tree National Park and the town of... More

Everything about Spin and Margie's was top notch right down to the DVDs and CDs they provided in the room. It was so nice to have a great kitchen and grill outside for making our own food. Couldn't recommend this place more!!!!

My family of four loved our stay at Spin and Margie's! We spent two comfortable nights in #3 Sonoran Traveler last week and it was definitely too short! The room was like a home away from home with it's well-stocked kitchen, large patio, and double entrance. It's in the perfect location for shopping in the trendy vintage shops in Yucca... More

Such a unique well-cared for space. The garden areas are beautiful and I love the cute decorations! I felt safe and relaxed and at home! It is a great place to go to write, head out for day hikes in Joshua Tree and get a good sleep. Thank you Spin & Margie :)

We were pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable well maintained property 3 miles from Joshua Tree. A nice relief from standard motel cookie cutter property. Looking for a little desert funk if so this is it.

Loved our three nights in this charming inn.It's a B an B, but you make your own breakfast. Our room, Mojave Wanderer, was comfortable, had a great little kitchen and a sitting/breakfast room and it looked out on a delightful courtyard. Birds chirped at the feeders and the sunset was breathtaking.Couple that with great walks at 49 Palms and Hidden... More
