This hotel was a bit out of the way of the event we were attending, but well worth it. Very clean and staff extremely accomodating and helpful. Only downer was the hot breakfast was not hot at all. but hey the stay itself and room was excellent.

The staff at this hotel is awesome, always greeting everyone with a smile and looking to help if you need anything. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar was plentiful and even would make a waffle to order if you wanted. Didn't need to because the eggs were hot, the sausage just right, toast, yogurt, a banana...Breakfast done!...

This was a great place to stay near Joshua Tree. We were able to drive in after dark to see the stars. The staff were welcoming and the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The free breakfast was great with plenty of variety.

Great place to stay at while visiting Joshua Tree. We were attending a wedding and it was stressful. This Best Western made us feel at home. Great lobby staff from the beginning welcomed us and the room was inviting. After our very long day we slept like babies in the best hotel bed. Will stay here again and again.

Very nice place. Great pool area. Room was on the second floor of the back building. Breakfast was very nice. Good selection of food to fuel your day in the park. Front office friendly. Great access to the park. One negative. .. staff using water hose to clean driveway. Huh? In the desert? Really?

I stayed here by myself for a class I was taking through the Desert Institute at the JTNP headquarters. My main objective was good, quiet sleep since my days would be spent in the field doing ecological studies. This hotel seemed to get pretty good reviews here on TA, so I gave it a whirl. I stayed in first floor... More

Liked this motel very much. It was clean & comfortable & quiet. Enjoyed sitting by the pool & watching the stars. The grounds were pretty. Loved view of the mountains when we walked out of our room ! Breakfast was fresh. Would have liked more space in the breakfast room.

Great value. Friendly staff, clean, reasonable rates and delicious breakfast with home made smoothies. Kids loved that the pool was open late. I'd definitely recommend this hotel. That's all Is like to say but Trip Advisor is saying I need 200 characters minimum.

Booked in advance, paid in advance for their Joshua Tree deal. The deal was free park admission. The deal was a non-refundable one, I did it weeks ago. We showed up and they tell us they will not honor the deal and haven't for more than a year. The question would be WHY do you still have the "deal" on... More

We were very happy with the lovely property outside Joshua Tree. The staff answered any questions we had promptly and with a lot of heart! Loved our stay. The rooms are clean, well kept.... the property is lovely.
