We stayed here for 3 nights during our road trip of California and absolutely loved it. I stayed here 10 years ago with my parents when I was 16 and loved it then. I was so eager to go back to Twentynine Palms and managed to for my belated honeymoon. It brought back so many happy memories staying here, and...

Needed somewhere to stay while visiting Joshua Tree NP and the Harmony Hotel fitted the bill perfectly. It is situated quite a way outside Twenty-Nine Palms so you need to drive to access restaurants or markets. I was worried about the lack of fridge or coffee maker in the room but it wasn't a problem. The communal kitchen with large...

I just spent one night, but next season, plan to visit many more times because I really enjoyed everything about the Harmony. Rooms were spotless, so clean and very comfortable. The courtyard was so inviting and I loved sitting outside in my personal chairs and table enjoying some of the best coffee I have ever had at a hotel. Fresh...

Myself and my friend Paul did a U2 road trip. We found the original Joshua Tree site as featured on the album cover from 1987. We then moved on the 29 Palms to stay in this iconic motel where U2 stayed in 1986. It's a really quaint motel and they have a room off the reception that is dedicated to...

The Harmony Motel is a nice relaxing small motel near Joshua Tree National Park. We had a king size bed in a nice room with a very large well equiped kitchen in an adjacent room. There is a nice well maintain pool and hot tub with great views of the area. The Harmony is situated on a hill over looking...

Thank you for your review, we love that you enjoyed your room and the well-equipped kitchenette!

When you gaze outside you see a beautiful desert view, not an asphalt parking lot. Our hiking group has been visiting here for the past eleven years and we have a sense of family here. In the early mornings with a cup of brew, many sunrises are simply gorgeous. The patio outside each room is so convenient for sharing snacks...

Thank you for sharing your feedback! It was a pleasure meeting you and your hiking group this year- everyone was lively and lovely.

This cute, little motel on a high spot next to the main highway offered quiet desert views from the pool and hot tub and was landscaped and decorated just right.

At Harmony, guests will find themselves just minutes away from rockclimbing and hiking excursions in and around Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms. The motel is less than one mile away from the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps (USMC) military base and is less than two miles away from Sky's The Limit, the local nature observatory.
