This was our next to last hotel stay on a two week vacation. The facilities were good like the others, but what made the difference was the staff who ran the place. They were the nicest group on the trip. I felt like I was being invited into their home and was treated accordingly. They were friendly, helpful, and went... More

This is an OLD Motel from the Past and has serious building layout problems. Only two ice machines and both are outside of the hotel and out of ice. A two story building with no elevator and no air-conditioning in the hallways.

This motel and the folks working there were one of the highlights of our vacation. Everyone was out of their way friendly and helpful and their Wednesday night Customer Appreciation dinner was great! Rooms were clean, WIFI was perfect and the pool was a real treat! Would highly recommend this to anyone staying at Twentynine Palms or visiting the Joshua... More

My wife and I took a "Get out of LA" weekend trip, and the Best Western Gardens Hotel at Joshua Tree National Park was just the ticket. In style and amenities, it was exactly what you would expect. Not high-end. Not low-end. Just a solid middle ground hotel. The place was clean (inside and out). The staff we encountered were... More

The hotel was on the main highway in close to the Marine Crop Base, shopping and Joshua Tree National Park. The hot breakfast could uses some work. If I'm in 29 Palms for business again I would stay here again

I stayed here for one night and it was a really nice stay. The amenities aren't luxurious but it has a comfortable bed, functional layout, fridge and free breakfast. The rates are very reasonable. The pool is nice and rooms are easy to get to. Would definitely come back.

This hotel is very close to the park and also convenient to shops and restaurants in 29 Palms. Our room was clean and well supplied with very comfortable beds. The breakfast each morning was also good. I would recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay. I got caught in a storm and needed a place to stay because of road blocks. I called and the girl stated she had a room for me and would save it till I could get there. When I got there she gave me a wonderful rate because of the circumstances. She invited me to join... More
