They said it was kitschy. It was just poor cheap taste. They only let me use 2 of the 3 bedrooms although it was advertised as a 3 bedroom house. When we used the pool down the road at the motel we had no bathroom access. They sent us to a nearby porta-potty! Seriously, they had a bathroom but it... More

We are sorry that you did not care for the house, but your crude characterization is totally uncalled for and mean-spirited. We understand that you started off upset because all of our Inn rooms were occupied, and the Villa is a 5 minute walk down the back road to our pool. We understand that you were upset that the pool... More

...that's unspoiled in a good way. Rating 5 for the ambiance, comfort, and effort to maintain a local feeling for travellers. For the most part, the facilities are fresh and colorful, everything works, and the beds are comfy. The hostess (owner?) is super-helpful and friendly. The rooms are arranged like a classic 60's "motor court" but instead of facing a... More

The Joshua Tree Inn is great. It's a throwback in the best sense. It's place in history will forever be cemented because of Gram Parsons. What keeps you coming back to it is the charm of the place itself. It is simple and it isn't fussy. That's kinda what makes it great. It's slower and less less complicated and that... More

I stopped by on the way to nearby Joshua Tree NP to pay my respects to Gram Parsons, a musical icon, who died here. The heartfelt items people left at his memorial are proof that he remains relevant and is still affecting people through his recordings. The memorial was simple but very impactful.

My fiance and I stayed here last weekend for two nights and had the absolute best time, we'll definitely be coming back! We love how laid back and welcoming it is here. Having never been to the area, and only seeing a few photos online, we were honestly expecting the hotel to be a bit more run down than it... More

A really special place to stay! We stayed on our way to Las Vegas from LA and it was the perfect place for the real Joshua Tree experience, I loved all the decor and landscape around.

Have stayed here twice now and both times were great! A JT cult classic, even if you aren't a Gram Parsons fan. Quaint rooms, fairly basic and decor could probably do with a little updating, but clean and comfortable. Great location if your stopping through just for a night or two. Within walking distance to cafes, bars and restaurants and... More

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!

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.

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
