We were on a day trip to Joshua Tree National park and decided at the last minute to stay back for the night. We didn't have any prior bookings and it was late and we found this place and called them up. They had one room free and gave it to us. The facilities were basic and room was clean.... More

Many people i knew had stayed here and all told me it was the perfect place to stay in Joshua Tree. Being a rock music fan i knew it's history so there wasnt really any other choice! At first impressions it isnt anything special - it's decor is outdated and it's showing the wear of lots of years of love.... More

Stayed in October 2015 Rounding up from 4.25 - 4.5. The charm and beauty of this place bumps it up. The rooms are clean and pretty comfortable. The room was very clean. It can get loud and occasionally rowdy with some of the other guests, but I've been here multiple times and will keep coming back. The service is always... More

This iconic inn/motel was a friends' fave and it lived up to the reputation. Super comfy bed. Funky desert vibe. Shrine to Graham Nash who od'd long ago in room 8. Nice pool to cool off in from the desert heat. We had a two bedroom suite with a fridge and private patio. It was perfect for us!!

We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay! It was our pleasure to serve and we look forward to your next "girls weekend". Just a note on Gram Parsons. He is the musician, not Graham Nash, to whom the memorial is dedicated :) Warmest Regards, JT Inn More

A truly unique property. Beautiful grounds, comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. The property is located in the town of Joshua Tree, which has some nice shops and restaurants. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Family of 4 (Dad, Mum, kids aged 5 and 9 from Australia) stayed in the Inn Keeper suite, room 2. Yes, the room is quite close to the freeway, but that didn't bother us, I didn't realize until the morning. The beds are really comfy. There's only a small fridge and a microwave so don't bring much food. The pizza... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Joshua Tree Inn, built in 1950, is a Hacienda Style inn conveniently located just six miles from the grandeur of Joshua Tree National Park. The Inn has long been known for the warmth, charm, and comfortable lodging it provides for guests visiting California's extraordinary Mojave Desert. The Inn is laid out in a square horseshoe that provides privacy for all of our guests. All of our eleven rooms are on ground level, facing our desert courtyard and large pool. Our decor is eccentrically eclectic. The Inn is the site of the legendary Gram Parsons Room, where the beloved and respected musician/songwriter spent his last hours. Room 8 still offers a quintessential "Cosmic American Experience" to fans of the father of Alt-country rock. On the peach colored wall hangs the same mirror and picture that hung in the room back in 1973. The Joshua Tree Inn features a large swimming pool, as well as our peaceful zen courtyard & koi pond, plus dining room access & gift shop. We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, & morning snacks for our guests.All of our charming rooms include: Private Patios ... more   less
