The Mojave Sands Motel is a 1940's motel that was taken apart and reconstructed. The doors, windows, bed frames, hardware and some of the furniture, were created either on-site or by local artisans. Reclaimed materials where used where ever possible. The grounds are surrounded by large sheets of steel and the walls are insulated with shredded jeans. There are two large King Suites with kitchens and three unique, comfortable standard rooms with Queen beds. Rooms have a private patios and water fountains. Located just minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave Sands provides a peaceful escape from the hectic pace of modern life, where one can come to recharge and enjoy the unique beauty of the desert.

Can really only be described as beautiful, wonderfully simple design that fits the desert perfectly. No fuss, clear messages on how to get in and parking details. It was 104 degrees outside but the materials and design are cool in more ways than one. The...More

Fantastic place to stay while exploring The Joshua Tree National Park. Clean, comfortable and spacious. We stayed in room 5 which is the largest and the best if you can get it. Others are lovely but smaller. I wholeheartedly recommend this motel to stay at.
