We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Twenty Nine Palms, CA. The people were very friendly towards us. One thing that they had in the lobby was a popcorn machine. Do you know how tempting this is, when you come back from sighting around the area. Terrific room. We did not have any problems at all. Great hotel, I would strongly recommend this HIE. We had a king room. Very quiet room. The bath room was really nice. We couldn't ask for anything else.

Last week, I spent 5 nights in this Holiday Inn Express (HIE) while rock climbing and hiking in Joshua Tree NP. It worked well for me.

The hotel building is a 4-story rectangular box and all rooms are accessed via the interior with 2 elevators servicing the floors above the first. The property does have a small outdoor pool and an indoor exercise room, neither of which I used. It also has a guest laundry and a business center, and the free in-room WiFi worked well for me. Please see the hotel's web site for a description of all features, amenities and photos as most hotel web sites, especially the chains, are way better than I could do at describing everything.

Adjacent to the lobby is the large breakfast area which also serves as a lounge for guests. In addition the daily free HIE breakfast, some items are available 24 hours - coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, oatmeal, bananas and apples. There are also a coffee/tea makers in the rooms that are stocked with the typical low quality supplies the budget chain hotels all seem to use.

When reviewing hotels such as HIE, Hampton Inn, etc., it is very hard not to repeatedly use the word typical as they tend to be mirrors of each because they are built to a formula with only minor exceptions. For me, this is actually part of the appeal as I know what I am going to get, even down to the layout of the room and the free breakfast, no matter where in the country I am staying.

I had a second floor king room away from Highway 62. It was very quiet at night. A nice feature of this HIE is that the rooms contain a small safe in the closet for valuables. Other than that, it was.........wait for it............typical HIE.

All in all, I found the staff very friendly and accommodating if I needed anything.

I can recommend this hotel and would stay here again, but would also be tempted to try the nearby Fairfield Inn just for comparison if I found myself in 29 Palms again.

As to Joshua Tree NP, it exceeded my expectations and I wish I had planned for more time here.

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights. The hotel is new and very clean. Everything was what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express, but what really stood out was the staff. They were exceptionally pleasant and friendly, and went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay. For example, one morning, we were a little late to breakfast and the woman working the buffet offered to make something fresh for us. Who does that anymore? The gym is also above average and my wife really enjoyed the complimentary popcorn in the lobby. We would definitely stay here again.

Such a good choice to make for Joshua Tree, convenient for the park entrance.
The staff were excellent and friendly from reception at check-in to check-out. We would especially highlight the lady who was in charge of breakfast time (think her name was Kate but could be wrong).

So yes if ever in that area again this is where we would stay.

The staff was fantastic from the front desk to the cleaning personal. Would highly recommend this hotel. The dinning area extremely clean and food selection more then expected. Recommend this hotel who is visiting Joshua Park or your Marine at 29 palms.

Room Tip: Select the rooms on the back side of the building to avoid the road sounds.

Friendly staff, clean, and predictable (I mean that as a compliment). Afternoon popcorn is a nice touch. However, the ceilings/floors are very thin, as are the doors . . . you will wake up when the people above you wake up, or when people walk down the hallway talking in normal voices. No good white noise options to cancel this out. Take earplugs.

As frequent Holiday Inn Express visitors, we've seen the best and the worst. This is one of the best! New, clean, friendly, helpful--no complaints from us, and we highly recommend it to those passing through or visiting Joshua Tree National Park, which is a must for desert lovers! If you're not camping, make this HIE your headquarters for hiking and sightseeing.
