“Marine Retirement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

The hotel was outdated, no wifi had to pay for it, no breakfast, not enough towels and no iron in the room.

Room Tip: Go to the hotel across the street. The cost of the room plus cost of internet equals the cost of bet...

Nothing special except it has three floors and creepy elevator (I was wondering if I got stuck or not). Average cleanness, standard no frills equipment. Good place for one night stay

Just stayed for three days. The room was clean, but small. Bed was small, but comfy.
No smoking may not be enforced here. and, we had a little bit of noise.

But, we are only paying 50.00 a night here. We are not planning to live here. We are so active that I slept well in spite of any annoyances. The Staff were nice to us. Why complain?
I thought it was a great place to crash while visiting the Park. Would I stay here again?
Yep. Inexpensive digs.

Three of us traveled together -- and stayed in three seperate rooms, so I know my experiences were not just my room.

The price is very low -- that is what attracted us. However, i wouldn't pay $1 to stay in this dump -- ever.

The rooms stank, even though advertised as non-smoking, there had been plenty of smoking in the room (even ashtrays were provided), the room had no air, the mattress was horrible, and the sheets and comforters were downright scary (we all slept with our clothes on).

We arrived late, so it was too late to go find something else, but as soon we flew out at sunrise in search of something safer.

We found wonderful accomodations just down the road, for $35/night more....worth every penny.

If you needed a room to store your luggage and perhaps take a nap for an hour or two, this hotel might be ok. For any other reason, please do yourself a favor and find a better deal.

The one good thing we can say about it was the front-desk staff were very friendly.

We arrived on a Monday night without a booking after a massive drive from Las Vegas. No non-smoking rooms left, but the lady at reception let us have keys for 3 smoking rooms to find the one that was not too bad. One of them was fine. The bonus - right next door to a Del Taco and 5 mins up the road and you are at Joshua Tree National Park.

Cheap and convenient to Joshua Tree National Park...but that's all. Low quality bedding, paper thin walls, and a tendency to house roudy Marines mean you better be exhausted from a long day hiking if you want to get some sleep. Clean enough. Slowwwwwww check in. As was the $3 internet access.

The people on the front desk were friendly. The room was quite small and the single chair in the room was broken and wobbled if you tried to sit in it. The mattress was as hard as a rock and made sleeping difficult. My dorm room at college was better than this (except for the private bathroom here). The room appeared clean but the smell of tabacco smoke was omnipresent. Only a few channels on the tv. DIdn't go in the pool, was kind of doubtful of its cleanliness.
Also seems to be the place companies are putting up construction workers who are working on the base, so there are many men hanging out on the walkways in front of the rooms on the upper floors drinking beer.
