“A perfect place for holidays !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2011

The Circle C lodge is a wonderful place for holidays : quiet, peaceful, close to the J Tree National Park. The owner is a very nice person, always ready to listen. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and perfectly well- equipped. The courtyard has a great swimming pool and a spa, surrounded by trees and bushes. It is nice to rest in the hot tub after a good day of climbing ! When we come back to 29 Palms, for sure we will stay in the Circle C !

Lovely quiet place in the desert. The innkeeper and his wife were very friendly and helpful. The hottub was clean and hot. Rooms were spacious and clean with full kitchens. We used the grill that was built into a 'boulder' by the pool. very nice place off the main road. Near grocery store and and very close to entrance of Joshua Tree Nat'l Park.

my partner and i took a trip to Joshua tree - i love the desert and my wish was to get into a hot Jacuzzi that evening. we didn't plan when we are going to stay that night. during the drive my partner located this hidden place.- CIRCLE C LODGE
its off the main road very quiet but still very close.
we were welcomed by a really nice Indian owner.
the room had everything we needed and more - kitchen with full facilities big space and the most important thing - hot Jacuzzi (which is open to all the guests and attached to a pool. in a public area).
the atmosphere was great - friendly, simple, comfortable quiet and a good price.
RECOMMENDED!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Circle C. Our room was spacious, clean, and completely comfortable with air conditioning and a ceiling fan. The courtyard and pool is immaculately maintained. It really felt like staying at a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert.

The staff was attentive and courteous and met all of our needs.

We highly recommend Circle C to everyone. It was the perfect choice in 29 Palms. We are so glad we didn't choose to stay at the nearby corporate hotel chains, which are so boring and completely lacking in charm.

Great location off beaten track with secluded pool, big relaxed and comfortable room for the 5 of us - 10, 16, 18 and 40 something years.

Friendliest host; watched sun up turn mountains red

Having read about this place & talked with the innkeeper I was totally shocked when I saw the state of our king size room. One easy chair was almost totally worn through, the carpet was a shambles, the windows were so dirty that the outside was hardly visible, the air conditioner was so noisy we could not use it, and the windows were rigged so we could only open them an inch or two but could not close them any further. Don't let me forget the mold in the tub stall and the dirty glasses that were put away in the kitchen. "Breakfast" was totally disgusting, consisting of packaged bagels & a messy coffee cake that looked like it was purchased as a closeout, the day it expired. This place was a giant rip-off, looking like a student apartment that had been cleaned because the parents were coming to visit. The only redeeming qualities were that the bed was passable and other than the mold, the bathroom was clean. I cannot recommend this place to anyone.

A delightful desert experiencce. Quiet and off the hiway with a pool and hottub - this is retro-cool. We had a quiet room with a full kitchen and a continental breakfast that was very generous. The innkeeper and his wfe are delightful and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area - unlike your franchise hotels.
