HBO is available and the beds are very clean and nice. The staff is very nice and they are very accommodating and will take care of you to their ability and serve you with respect. The Safari Motel is right near the Joshua Tree Park entrance at Park Blvd. Good Luck

JUST BY CHANCE, came to Joshua Tree after the rains last month, the entire desert is fowers. A room at budget hotel Safari is perfect. Car is 4 feet from door, the bed firm, pool too cold, walks to town very closeby, and the shower is from that eternal basin of water in JT. Access is perfect, reserve for JY... More

Ravi the owner was so sweet and helpful on arrival. We had a brief but wonderful stay here but found it really comfortable, especially the bed! The shower was strong- surprising for the desert! Overall amazing value. We would come back in a heartbeat.

This motel has a good location to the park. The manager was really helpful and gave us all the information we needed plus a ten per cent off food at the joshua tree saloon. The room was basic but all we needed

My cousin and I stayed here for 5 days, while hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. Ravi was very welcoming, showing us several rooms and letting us choose. He knew we wanted a quiet place, so showed us a room in the back, very private, where we didn't hear any road noise. Our room at the Safari Motor Inn was... More

While looking for a place to rent, my husband and I stayed at the Safari Motor Inn for almost 2 weeks. Ravi and Jasmine were wonderful. They gave us a lot of valuable information about Joshua Tree. The room was clean and basic. Heater worked fine. Had Wi-Fi, Microwave and Refrigerator. We had all we needed at a great price... More

My wife and I stayed at the Safari for close to two weeks and found it perfect . It was clean and inexpensive and we stayed warm during record breaking lows last month. The owners were more than kind and accomodating and went the extra mile to help us find a new place by giving great advice and literature. The... More

Not sure why but the vibes from this basic hotel were wonderful. Rooms were very clean, soft white paint, and king beds extremely comfortable. Maybe it was the soft demeanor of the owner, Ravi. In any case, highly recommended for a relaxing place to stay near J.T. Natl. Park. Very very reasonable. We stayed 3 nights.

As a long time outdoor photographer I visit Joshua Tree National Park often each year for a very long time now. I'd stayed at a few places in the earlier years and found that my brief trips and quick access to the park were not working that well for me. Only by chance did I find the Safari Motor Inn... More
