Don't know who he is and don't care. My husband does and that is how we first ended up staying here for the 1st time 2 years ago. If you want to stay in a sterile, boring motel with predictable service, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to stay in a place that is peaceful, calm, and zen, the Joshua Tree Inn is your paradise. When we stayed 2 years ago, it was up for sale and definitely needed some work. When we stayed this past June, the "for sale sign" was gone and many improvements were being made on the property. I have seen reviews where the beds were terrible- we must have lucked out. Our bed had a new mattress and I have never slept better. The pool and grounds were clean. The pool furniture needs to be replaced, but with all the remodeling going on, I would hope that would be on their agenda. The pool furniture was comfortable, it was just old. Also, when it says check in is 3:00, that means 3:00. No one will be there before then. The inn has coffee, tea and granola bars set out for breakfast everyday. It's nice to get a cup of coffee and sit outside your room and enjoy the view. The Crossroad's restaurant is a couple blocks away and has a wonderful food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want a relaxing time and pretend you are in 1950's California- this is your place!
- 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
