We stayed in #5 (Desert Rambler)..the biggest room. Very nice, with private enclosed area as well as very nice courtyard in the front. We were four adults and felt private and homey at the same time. The kitchen was very easy to cook in..the grill outside was immaculate. The grounds were perfect for the desert setting. The place was full... More

On our one month tour this was the most colourful & quirky place we stayed. Small Mexican village feel to the place. Facilities great & we made full use of the BBQ. Cabin & beds were clean & comfortable.Mindy was very friendly & gave us good tips about area. Very peaceful location with interesting garden.

We loved our cozy, homey and attractive suite. The whole place had unique and tasteful touches - so much more personal than a chain hotel. We loved sitting by the common area fountain and watching the birds, and roamed the grounds taking photos. The linens seemed new, the bed comfortable, and the whole place seemed so well kept up. We... More

This was my first stay at Spin and Margie's and I will certainly be back. The room I stayed in (room 2) was very well appointed, with a nice kitchen (microwave, toaster, two burner stove, fridge, large sink, etc), a nice comfortable bed, entertainment amenities (tv, dvd player, cd player), and a large extra room that was perfect for meals....

Our two night stay to see the beauties of Joshua Tree National Park was markedly enhanced by the charm and warmth of Spin and Margie's. As others have noted, the charm starts when you first enter the driveway. Our room (Cabin #5) was ample sized, nicely decorated, good space for reading or working on computer, fully equipped with amenities for... More

I was expecting a sweet little place when I made my reservations with Spin and Margie's. I was delighted when I drove into the parking area and even more so when I walked into my motel room. I found it to be tastefully decorated. The size was nice with some room to spread out. There is also some outside sitting... More

This place was so special from our turn onto the property until the time we hit our pillows at night. The amenities were perfect and our private backyard not only had a fountain, it also had a great view of the snow covered mountains. We went for our 25th anniversary and to hike my favorite park, Joshua Tree. We now... More

We had a wonderful stay in the cactus wren cabin at Spin and Margie's. The cabin has it's own patio area for stargazing and is a nice size for a couple. We saw lots of birds in the garden area and a roadrunner near our patio! This is a self service style inn, there is lots of information to guide... More

Let me start by saying the property is charming, the kitchen is fully stocked, and the art is funky and awesome. It just wasn't a great fit for us, esp. for the (not cheap) price. A few things: 1) the beds were a bit small, and creaked something awful, and the walls were fairly thin, so every time someone rolled... More

There is no breakfast served here....but who cares? This is one of the three "coolest" places I've ever stayed. If you want breakfast...prepare your own! All but one of the five suites have kitchen facilities of some sort. Coffee and tea are provided, as are many condiments, spices and oils for food preparation on your own. Grocery stores are slim...
