If you pass through Joshua Tree on your way east or just for a couple days visiting the National Parks, this is a nice stop. Very cozy place -it is an inn after all-we had the front room with 2 bedrooms and a private patio plus a hot tub. It's not modern or very updated but it had a clean... More

I hesitate to review the Joshua Tree Inn on Trip Advisor because it's an amazing gem that I'd never want to see become over saturated with tourists. But the truth is, this is an absolutely wonderful place that deserves recognition. I've stayed here twice (with a third intended trip already planned for next month) in the John Barrymore suite.

Wonderful small inn that is a 50s style motel turned into eclectic accommodations with relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in room 11 which was a suite with kitchen and private patio (not sure if all rooms are similar). The pool was nice and had a cool temperature (which was great in 100 degree weather). It is a 5 min drive to... More

One of all time favorite places to stay. I've had the pleasure of Room #8, Gram Parson's suite on two occasions. Both times STELLAR! The staff are more than gracious & the Chai Tea in the afternoon is so sweet. Just the best! Fun playing guitar there, great place to create <3

Very nice experience and loved the special appeal of Room 11, the Gram Parsons room. Very comfy, clean and quiet. We stayed there for our anniversary and had a sweet time! The service was satisfactory, but, since we arrived late, and left late, we never saw any staff. Be aware that there do not appear to be staff on duty... More

Staying here was a pilgrimage for me, as a musician and Gram Parsons fan. My partner and I stayed in the Gram Parsons Room (#8), where that country/rock pioneer died at 26 years of age in 1973. The innkeepers have done an excellent job of sustaining a unique motel, especially in this era of chain hotels and homogeneity. The pool... More

First off I just want to say the staff here is awesome...there was some trouble charging my card for the reservation because I had met my POS limit for the day on my... More

Scored the Gram Parson's room for a three night stay. The Inn is a no fuss place where folks from the valley come to decompress, visit the desert, Joshua Tree National Park, sample the local art scene and in general just chill. Very interesting historical documents and writings from GP fans in Room #8 including a memorial outside the door.... More
