Don't go here if you can avoid it. Definitely stay over the road, or anywhere else in Joshua Tree. If like us, you book late, and everywhere is full, then a) have a shower before you go, b) bring a lot of extra clothes (it is freeeeeezing and our heater just blew cold air), c) don't drink the coffee they leave in your room. The bed is hard, the covers are manky, the TV worked intermittently, and so on. Otherwise, brilliant.

Room Tip: Somewhere else, probably

Worst place ever! Do not stay here! Go down the street and get a better place. You might as well pay an extra 10 dollars and go to a different motel a couple miles down the road. I will not recommend this place to anybody. Worst experience ever...

This is an older type 2 storey basic motel. Nothing to right home about but was clean and comfortable- it would be ok for 1 night stay. This was a friendly town but unfortunately it is full of meth addicts wondering the streets!

My pal and I wanted to escape LA during Halloween and tromp around in the park, so I looked for the cheapest digs nearest the park entrance. Truthfully, a motel was the least of our focus, anything that was clean and convenient was fine with us as we were goaled to experience the park, the 3 towns of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and 29 Palms and see friends who recently moved there. In a nutshell: it was fine. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to knock, either! It was a pleasant uneventful no trouble stay. We weren't in the room that much, and we didn't even use the pool, though it looked fine. I did love the huge lit up "JESUS" sign behind the property though!
I would stay here again for the price and location. And maybe use the pool next time..

Room Tip: The stairs to the 2nd floor are long, I think there's no elevator. But the view from the top is very nice at sunset!

If you need a place to stay while hiking Joshua Tree this place might be an option. We stayed overnight for one night, getting up early to photograph Joshua Tree at sunrise. The room was reasonably clean, but you get what you pay for. Not a bad deal for $45 a night.
