“Fabulous!”
Reviewed November 30, 2007

Just arriving from LA in Joshua Tree we found this B&B by accident. What a beautiful place! The hosts Jan and Gary make you feel as though you are family. The breakfast was the best I've ever had in the USA. After our round trip through Arizona and New Mexico we decided to go back to this place (instead of San Diego) for two more nights before going home to Germany. We stayed in the Oasis room. This place is truely an Oasis in the middle of a desert.

Simply fantastic!

First let me say that there are only three reasons to stay at a hotel in Twentynine Palms:
1) Your loved one is in the Marines and you are visiting or celebrating a special event
2) You are in love with the desert and need a home base for Joshua National Park
3) You are lost and need a place to stay

For me and my wife, we were there to visit with our son who had just returned from IRAQ. Both of us had been to 29 Palms before, but neither had stayed at the Roughley Manor.

We are neither connoisseurs of fine B and Bs nor are we looking for bargain basement hotel rooms. The amazing thing about Roughley Manor is that it is totally unexected. The property is awesome, the Owls are magnificent and the Innkeepers are incredible.

We stayed in the Sunset room. This place is truely an Oasis in the middle of a desert.

I took three generations of family members to Roughley Manor after looking at the website. All 6 of us...from age 63 to age 10...had a wonderful time! Lovely as the photos are, they don't do the place justice! The old stone mansion is beautiful, and it's lovingly maintained by the owners/innkeepers, who are wondeful hosts and outstanding breakfast chefs.

We loved the great horned owls, who swoop silently over the gardens at twilight. And there is nothing like the star-filled night sky over that part of the desert.

My husband booked our room since he wanted to visit Joshua Tree NP. I can be very fussy and was somewhat concerned upon first arriving in 29 Palms. Was I in for a delightful surprise!!
Our room was elegant, yet warm and comfortable. The grounds are absolutely lovely. The hosts make you feel as though you are family. To top it off, breakfast was a treat. We would highly recommend Roughley Manor to the fussiest of travelers without any hesitation.

WOW - stayed here after doing joshua tree NP - blows away anything else in 29 palms -- what a room (especially since it looks like nothing from the outside) -- great breakfast, great folks -- nice piece of property -- especially since 29 palms seems a little rough around the edges -- this was a great retreat away from the highway and the environs

We discovered Roughley Manor in Twentynine Palms, CA quite by accident after seeing an ad in a local magazine. When we drove out and found it, we were absolutely amazed. The accommodations were fabulous, the breakfasts were the best we've ever had anywhere, and the owners are two of the most hospitable and generous people you will ever meet. We were in Twentynine Palms to visit our son, who is stationed there with the Marines, before his deployment Sept. 15th. Discovering Jan and Gary's Roughley Manor just "made" our weekend. We were able to relax around the pool with our son and daughter-in-law, and totally enjoy ourselves---even forgetting sometimes the purpose of our visit. We rate Roughley Manor and the owners
Five-Star!
