After a long day of hiking in Joshua Tree National Park, we were happy to check in to the Joshua Tree Inn and take a load off. We stayed in the Emmylou Harris room. It has recently been updated, with fresh paint and new furniture. The new bed was fantastic, and we slept like babies.
The courtyard is dreamy at night. During our visit, the wisteria that envelopes the walkway to all of the rooms was in bloom. It smelled great. The moon was almost full, the air was crisp, the lighting made it easy to move around without taking away too much from the stars above.
We only stayed one night because we were moving on. I hope the next time I'm out that way, I can stay for a few nights and recharge.
- 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
