Beautiful desert views, very helpful staff.. a really relaxing place to stay. If you are looking for a big name anonymous hotel chain this is not what you want. If you want an intimate relaxing home away from home, in super fun and functional rooms.. check out the Harmony Motel. Filled with great history and wonderful stories.. an awesome desert... More

I took my 19 year old daughter to The Harmony Motel. She said that it was the best vacation experience she had ever had and she has had many. We loved it. The owner was very kind and helpful. A poets dream. They are not capitalizing on the U2 thing. If anything, U2 is capitalizing on the beauty and quirkyness... More

We stayed at the Harmony Hotel with the idea of something out of the ordinary. We were not disappointed. The room we had came with a kitchenette which made our choices easy for dining. We sat outside our room dining on the food of our choice, sipping wine and watching the sun go down. Being perched on the hillside allowed... More

Don't get me wrong, the whole experience was wonderful. I loved Joshua Tree and the Milky Way, they are experiences of a lifetime. The attraction to The Harmony Motel was of course it was where U2 stayed while they wrote and recorded their album Joshua Tree. Ash, the proprietor was a very kind person. The building itself is old and... More

The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. check-in was smooth and efficient and the proprietor, a very nice lady was quite accommodating.Coffee was brewed and ready in the... More

My husband I booked 3 nights at the Harmony Motel based on location, reviews, and the fact it had a hot tub. We arrived on a Sunday night to a nice greeting from Ash the owner. We had a miscommunication ahead of time about the dates of our arrival but it was quickly remedied without any problems. We had originally... More

I'm very sorry and frustrated as TA canceled my previous review, sayng it "appears to contain an allegation of fraud" and sayng that "We hope you will consider resubmitting a review that reflects your personal experience". Well, I can only copy and paste my original review, in order to share my personal experience, to help other travellers. For sure the... More

I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Harmony Motel, which is located just a few minutes from the entry to Joshua Tree National Park. I chose it after some favorable reviews. I found the small, down to earth atmosphere very enjoyable. It is quiet, clean, roomy, and gives the traveler a feel for the environment. There is... More

This is an update to a review I originally written back in January 27, 2008. It's been 7 years and since we've stayed more than 15 times since my first stay in Dec. 2007, I think the Harmony deserves an updated review. I gave Harmony a 5 star then and I am still giving it a 5 star today after... More

Rooms are large and well maintained, despite the aged retro appearance from the outside. Some of the bedding and chairs were stained (clean, but stained). Small communal kitchen was handy although gets locked at night. Location is beautiful, at elevation on the outskirts of 29 Palms, so a beautiful view over the city and towards the hills. Shower had good... More
