we like places with charm and character -- Joshua Tree Inn has both. It is old - not for someone who loves a shiney new holiday cookie cutter inn -- but the rooms are clean, unique, nicely decorated and quiet. our junior suite had a bar with stools, king bed with good quality pillows and linens, lovely painted tile in the tiny bathroom (they really made them small when this place was built -- but it was fine -- shower was good and the toiletries were excellent) and a small private patio - my daughter and SIL's room was smaller, but also nice with queen bed and both rooms had microwave and refrigerator. owner was friendly and accomodating, the breakfast room was nice and the breakfast excellent. we loved it -- it was just what we were looking for -- only sorry it was too cold to enjoy the pool.
- 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
