I stayed at this ultra cool and comfy motel on January 5, 2013. I went to Joshua Tree with a large group of friends to attend a sound bath session at Integratron (http://www.integratron.com/6ComeOnIn/ComeOnIn.html) and we booked this motel and inhabited all of the 5 available rooms. What I loved most about this motel, was that I wanted to take a photo of everything on site! It was so exquisitely and ecclectically decorated (they used re-purposed vintage furniture, record players, albums, old typewriters, and glass vases from thrift stores, as well as other nic nacs to decorate each room), it was hard NOT to be enamoured with every single detail of this place! Aside from the fantastic decor in each of the 5 rooms, every room was really user-friendly, too. Our room was the "suite" and had the kitchen with the bar-counter area and living room area, but all rooms have a great bathroom and shower with nice fixtures, comfy beds with soft linens, pillows and blankets, and groovy artwork on the walls. Note: every room is uniquely different but equally great to stay in. Aside from the indoor living space, one of the things we all loved about this motel was the courtyard! The pool has a floating firepit, a rock wall of tranquil water falling into the pool and the entire grounds are lit by lanterns and string lights. There is also a fit pit in the courtyard for the guests to use and hang around. In the morning, we all made coffee and breakfast in the "suite" and ate outside in the communal courtyard, then went hiking at nearby Joshua Tree. I would absolutely stay here again!! Loved it!
