Harmony Motel is conveniently located close to Joshua Tree National Park. The other options look run-down or they're big chain hotels. (They're all next to the highway, so bring earplugs.) We liked this small 1950s motel on a hill with a pool, hot tub, native desert plants and a little patio with mountain view for each room. It's a good... More

There are chains in town -- possibly cheaper --- but it would feel weird to trek into the beautiful wilderness of Joshua Tree and then trek back to a hotel room. Instead, the Harmony motel! We stayed in Rm 6 -- a large room furthest from the road with a fully equiped kitchen and a shower. In fact, there are... More

We arrived late on Saturday night by driving by and seeing the harmony motel sign. We stopped in and asked if there was a room available for one night. We just needed a place to rest. Lucky for us there was an open room from a previous cancellation. Ashika (the owner) was wonderful!! She was so kind and ushered us... More

Then this is definitely not one. But it's a motel, not a hotel. It's individual rooms on the block of the main drag. No bathtub, no pool, no amenities. So if you want different, this is your place... But it's more expensive (80) than the other three star chains up the block (65), where we ultimately stayed in the end.... More

Dear Amy, thank y for emphasizing that the "motel" is a motel and not a "hotel". Yes you definitely did not stay at the motel that offers y more amenities than a traditional motel and hotel does. Are y reviewing the correct motel? because and if y did stay or visited the motel, y would have discovered that the motel... More

We had a great stay here last week. The motel is very charming, and the owner clearly takes pride in maintaining and operating it. She showed us our room and also around the grounds. The rooms are clean, and ours had a full kitchen. Unlike many other establishments, the dishes and the pots and pans were all clean and well-organized.... More

We stayed in the cabin (2 adults, 2 year old, and dog) and it was great. No frills but everything we needed. The kitchen was helpful and we enjoyed meals on the outdoor patio. The pool was too cold to get in but nicely maintained. It's 12 miles to JT and right on the highway. The street noise didn't bother... More

We chose the Harmony after reading the reviews on Tripadviser. Not being huge fans of the big chain hotels, this seemed like the perfect atmosphere for a trip to the California desert and amazing Joshua Tree National Park. From the landscaping decor of metal coyotes, an owl, frogs and cactus to the bistro tables in front of every unit, we... More

Harmony motel is a perfect choice for 29 Palms. It is clean, personal and different with the best spot in town. The rooms are clean and basic (though don't count on chatting late into the night, the walls are thin!). Staff are courteous.

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
