I have stayed most places in Joshua Tree, and this is the place that most epitomizes that Joshua Tree vibe for me. The grounds, the light, the delicious chai, dunno what it is. One of my favorite memories is sitting around the fire pit at night listening to people play amazing music and watching the stars. Don't miss the light...

This is such a great place to stay!!! We were in room 2...which is in effect 2 bedrooms. It has a spa outside in its own private courtyard. Some people on trip advisor have complained about this Inn. You come to Joshua Tree for the experience of the area not a Presidential suite like hotel. Joshua Tree Inn is quaint,...

We stayed in hotels and motels all over California and Arizona and nowhere else was as pretty and charming as the Joshua Tree Inn. In functional terms it was good - a big, clean pool, a big comfy bed, a good bathroom. But what set it apart from other places were the individual patios for each room, the well furnished...

This area has very inexpensive hotels. I booked here thinking it would be very charming as it was not cheap. Big mistake. Ok location, bad service, yard sale furniture, and dirty ashtrays everywhere. Terrible coffee and tea. The mattress was fine but the room was bare bones and the furniture pretty sad. Tv had 13 channels. Pool was nice. We...

We understand. Why stay at a legendary Inn with Zen garden, Koi pond, three acres of desert, huge pool, lounge deck and cultural history, when you could have stayed at a cheap motel? We don't understand why you didn't switch the remote from "TV" to "Cable" for more channels,though. Or why you don't care for freshly brewed Yerba Mate leaf...

This motel is near the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. Staying there made me feel like I was a groupie from 20 years ago. Indeed Gram Parsons did die here, and you can pay extra to stay in his last room. The property is huge, with private patios for each non-cookie-cutter room, an area with a fire pit,a breakfast/game...

This place is very simple and wonderful. Everything is very laid back and you could imagine it was 50 years ago. It's lovely having your own patio. And there aren't words to say how beautiful the scenery is. The staff was really nice and helpful. I would love to stay there again someday.

We stayed in the Gram Parsons Room 8. It was really more for my boyfriend, a musician and huge Gram fan, but I totally enjoyed it myself. The surroundings were beautiful and the pool was large, crystal clear and a great place to spend a hot day. We loved having a little private patio to drink wine and look at...

The Joshua Tree Inn is a beautifully maintained historic property near the western entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. This is not a modern hotel. The rooms are small and quaint with loads of character. You will not find modern amenities like jet tubs but what you will find is a peaceful spirit and beautiful grounds to enjoy. The staff...

We stayed at the Fox Bungalow which is 4 miles away from the JTI. When we first walked in, I was a bit deflated. The room itself is much more worn than it appears on the website, the vibe was tired and unkempt. The bed comforter had stains. There was red paint peeling off the floor. The bathroom carpet was...

Thank you for noting the great wilderness location,the beautiful pine-studded setting and awesome pool area. This privately owned cabin,on the edge of the National Park,is booked through the Joshua Tree Inn at $169.00 per night (not $200.,as you stated). There are no hotel services,like a safe,because it's a wilderness cabin,not a hotel. We are sorry that our strong high desert...

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
