This motel met our needs while in town. It certainly has its charms - quiet, lots of outdoor chairs for reading or chatting and lots of desert mountain views. A very busy restaurant and bar are just a few steps away which had good food and seemed really popular on Friday/Saturday night for local live music. I would caution that... More

This is a truly fun location, where we spent a night with family members visiting from Germany. The rooms are Western Style decorated, simple and basic, but cozy.We all slept well, after enjoying a nice meal and local music entertainment at Pappy & Harriet's Bar and Restaurant across the way. Early morning I got up strolled the old movie town... More

It was wonderful to stay so close to Pappy's bar which had 2 brilliant concerts when we were there. The location at a higher altitude than Yucca Valley is also a lot more comfortable. The accommodation was quirky but really dirty.

The hotel is pretty well-kept and in a beautiful setting. As a solo traveler this trip, I was all excited to come stay somewhere interesting and off-the-beaten-path, and Pioneertown fit the bill on my way to Joshua Tree National Park. Beware, though: while they may send you a confirmation email that says check in is available until 10pm, at 8:45... More

Wonderful experience, even though I couldn't have the Roy Rogers room! In fact, I felt like the three little bears trying to find a room in which the air conditioner didn't rattle the bed posts. I ended up in room 7, next to the Annie Oakley room. Nothing spectacular, but it was clean and there was no TV in every... More

I chose to stay here for my last two nights of my 2+ week road trip of the SW USA. Check in was swift and no nonsense. This was my only interaction with the staff as there was no-one there when I left at 8.10am? The place is quirky like Pioneertown itself (and also a little weird). The decor is... More

If you're seeing a show at Pappy and Harriet's and you don't want to bother driving home the same evening (or early morning) you should definitely stay at Pioneertown Inn. The rooms are a bit on the small side but they're adorable and kitschy. I shared room 12 with my friend that had a sign that said "The Duke" on... More

I'm very disappointed to be writing this review. I'm not a negative online review sort of person, and generally find that the places I stay conform to the review written by sane sounding people on Tripadvisor. As such, I was looking forward to staying at the Pioneertown Inn. I'm a fan of Pappy and Harriets, the neighbouring bar, and had... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay on our way to Santa Monica from San Diego and we knew that we wanted to visit Joshua Tree National Park, and after abit of research we discovered this hidden gem. On arriving we were abit dubious as its remote location is alittle intimidating, but once you start walking... More

My friends and i were on our way home from Joshua tree, when we did an unexpected stop at Pioneertown. We had too much to drink at a nearby bar, it was a good thing there was an available room. First off, one shouldn't expect 5 star accommodations in Pioneertown. The whole place exudes such an old western vibe, and... More
