In brief, very clean, but the decor is a bit-dated. Internet was fast for the first two days, not so going into the evening going into the next morning of a three-day stay. It was like it fell from DSL to (back-up?) dial-up speeds, so I used my Verizon LTE (much faster) but alas, cut into my data plan. Breakfast... More

Arrived late and stayed only one night on our way from LA to Grand Canyon. Scorchingly hot even after dark, it was great to be able to soak in the pool and Jacuzzi, and I must say the pool area was very nice. Rooms big and clean, and the included breakfast was the best I've ever had at a Best... More

We had a nice one day stop here. Not enough for full use of the facilities but enough to know how good they are. The room was nice and clean and the air conditioning worked well. That was important as it was 103 degrees the day we came and the day we left. The pool was small but at a... More

My wife and I visited Twenty Nine Palms to see our soon at the Marine Base. It is truly a desert experience. Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley are nearby(15-30 minutes away.) Food options are okay. Some Local and some national chains. Stater Brothers Grocery is clean and friendly. The Best Western was nice. It has coffee and chocolate chip cookies... More

Everything you could ask for in a reliable place to stay. Friendly, helpful staff. Spotless rooms. Good air-conditioning, complimentary internet, free parking, breakfast included. Easy to find and only five minutes from entrance to the Joshua Tree National Park.

I am sorry to say nothing really stood out with this hotel. It was reasonably clean and quiet (apart from the A/C unit which was quite noisy), the rooms were reasonably sized and the location was within reasonable distance from the national park and restaurants. Do yourself a favor: Skip the complimentary breakfast and go to a cafe.

Great staff, good breakfast, quiet and clean room!! Particularly liked the separation of shower / toilet room and sink/ mirror space in the bedroom area!! Would stay there again if we get out to the Joshua Tree CITD again!!

Nice hotel, close to Joshua Tree National Park. Pleasant staff, clean room, good shower. Breakfast was good, staff was on top of it and keeping everything full. We were passing through and didn't use the pool. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is extremely clean, with excellent, friendly, and accommodating staff. It is located within close proximity to the Joshua Tree National park and visitors center. This was my first time visiting 29 Palms, and based on this vacation, I would stay here again.
