“Newly Remodeled, Nice Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Hotel newly remodeled, had nice TV, fridge, coffee maker, microwave, etc. in rooms. Beds comfy. Good sized rooms. Breakfast bar had staff making waffles, smoothies, in addition to scrambled eggs, bacon, etc in warming tray (microwaved food). Had juices, coffee, teas, yogurt, bagels, cereal, etc. Looked like a nice pool and jacuzzi (we were there in December so did not try). Very close to North entrance to Joshua Tree. Nice place to stay if visiting 29 Palms/Joshua Tree area.

The hotel needs to be remodeled asap. The room was not clean. The desk, dresser top, nightstands all had stains on them that were removed easily when I wiped with a wet towel, so who knows when they were cleaned last. The carpet was filthy and there was a smell. The breakfast was terrible. Brenda at the front desk needs a personality transplant. This is a motel which charge no more than $50 for their rooms (and, even that is overpaying).

Yuck.

Room Tip: Avoid the hotel at all cost!

This hotel offers almost everything we need- fridge, microwave, swimming pool, guest laundry and jacuzzi. The room we stayed was nice and clean although my friend thought the carpet had little weird smell which was not a big deal. The part I liked about this hotel the most was the complimentary breakfast. It is fully stocked and there is a lady who makes good waffles and pancakes.

This stay was a great time for me and my family. The pool was always nice to jump in and cool off. I originally planned to stay at the holiday inn down the road, but they said i had a reservation for 3 rooms. I only asked for one. i stayed for the two nights i was supposed too. Then my family had such a good time hiking and wanted to do more so we decided to stay for two more days. Instead of the holiday inn we went to the best western. It had such a great swimming pool and extremely nice employees. The rooms were super clean. It felt like i was at home. I really enjoyed the clean remote they had because we all know the other ones are distgusting. Overall the Best Western blew away the holiday inn.

Room Tip: The suites next to the pool are very nice

I made a reservation at this hotel but on arrival the receptionist told that there was no reservation on record. I then found a another hotel. Three days later I get a phone call saying that they are charging me for the room. I explained the situation and they promised the Manager would be in contact - never happened. I called again the following week and was promised the manager would call back - never happened. Called again and got through to the "Manager" (or the 2nd receptionist), who said this was the owners decision. I'm not sure what the point of the Manager is then. Anyway, I'm now awaiting the owner's call back. Not going to hold my breath....

Clean and friendly hotel. I've stayed here in the past and the new updates (furniture, large flat screen TV, and great water pressure) made it a much more enjoyable stay. Don't plan on working out in the fitness center, as it is the only part of the hotel that did not get a facelift. Would still recommend.

I stayed at this hotel with the impression it would be just any other hotel out there under the brand of Best Western but I was strongly mistaken. This hotel should not be a standard Best Western, this hotel is better than any other hotel I've ever stayed at including the Premier hotels under the brand. I made a trip out to 29 Palms to see my parents who have lived thier for ages but decied to bring the kids so a hotel was in need, they upgraded me to one of thier pool side suites and it was just absolutely amazing; they have just renovated and what a great job they did at it, but I would say the most impressing thing about the hotel is the exceptional customer service I was given. From the nice front desk clerk Megan who gave me the upgrade and Joe the night person who checked me out to the front desk manager who informed me of all the good to eat places around Casey, to the main manager who you can tell takes true pride in the Hotel, Sue. I really enjoyed my stay at this Best Western and will be returning very soon.

Room Tip: The pool side suites are such a great price for what this hotel offers! 601 is my fav!
