Having been to Pappy & Harriet's and Pioneertown before on a Joshua Tree excursion, we were curious to stay at the Pioneertown Motel. We decided to give it a try on our way out to Arizona to visit family. We give it a resoundingly positive review with 4 stars -- we reserve 5 stars for resorts. With respect to the... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2016

For me this was exactly what I had signed up for. The views of the night time sky, the walking distance to Pappy & Harriets, the remoteness from the world, the hikes, the education of the area and the authentic feeling it provided. I recommend this as a couples retreat, a work shop for a company, for weddings, for friends... More

Felt just like we were staying in an old Hollywood Western! We loved the authentic touches at Pioneertown Motel and were impressed with how comfortable the beds were. It was a little on the pricey side but in saying that we have definitely paid more for less. The coffee available in the office was so good and the WiFi was... More

So you go to the Pioneertown Motel because it's the only game in town and clearly they know. The management makes zero effort. The room itself was fair nothing special but serviceable. Not very clean and in need of some upgrades. There is no TV -ok, we're in the desert. But there is also no phone, no cell service in... More

Authentic and off the beaten track-next door to Pappy and Harriets food/music venue legend of a place. Stayed twice at Pioneer Town and loved it both times. Great for star gazing on the wooden porch at night with a beer.

Only five miles from route 62, but it feels like the old west. Comfortable rooms with a great view, mountains all around. No tv but internet is decent. Good Coffee at the office in the morning, and right next to Pappy and Harriets, a good restaurant with cool atmosphere. Not huge on amenities but fun. Don't use gps to find... More

Loved the contemporary interiors that fitted the theme of the motel. Was such a warm welcome to the space and history of the area. The clean, open air, beautiful sunrises and great service made it the perfect getaway. Such a great change from the norm! The hike we did was epic and I feel fully recharged after my time out...

The motel was so much fun. The rooms simply designed but comfortable and clean with great heating. The location is wonderful out in the desert with the stars, cacti, and Pappy and Harriet's authentic 'saloon' 100 m away. I will def come back and enjoy more time exploring this area - the hiking looks amazing.

The location of Pioneertown Motel allows for seclusion while at the same time ensuring their guests have comfort. Beautifully decorated rooms, comfortable beds, and accommodating outdoor area adaptable for most activities. Loved this spot, would not think twice about recommending it!

Pioneertown Motel was absolutely amazing. With the wild west meets modern rustic vibe, I could have stayed for so much longer! Dee is absolutely amazing and willing to go above and beyond for guests, you're a short walk to Pappy & Harriets and you have the desert as your playground. There are in room mini refrigerators, you park right outside... More
