“A Little Slice of Heaven...”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I stumbled upon this amazing Oasis one time after visiting Joshua Tree National Park. It is a bit secluded which was exactly what I needed. A perfect getaway from the Armenian teenage boys who drive 100mph in their BMW's, smog, traffic, bad attitudes, and negative energy in Los Angeles. This place is a little slice of heaven. Quiet, out of the way, and peaceful. You can choose from several cabins on the property which is desert wilderness. Quail and robins will wander around your doorstep at sunrise, jack-rabbits hop around nearby, the breakfast is outstanding at the cafe, and the staff are outgoing and very friendly. They will treat you like family. Bring your smartphone as some cabins have no in-room phones.Remember, 29 Palms, the city, is just a place people stay while visiting the soldiers at the nearby military base. The real reason to drive all the way out here is the Park! There is a small fee for a 5-day pass, but it's worth it. This hotel is charming and as the Brits say, "a bit rustic" , but very clean and cozy! Joshua Tree is one of the great Natural Wonders of the world. I've met travellers from Germany, Holland, Australia ,England, Brazil,Canada, and Russia while hiking inside the park. All nice and generous people who respect the beauty and magic of the land. Feels so good to come back at night to 29 Palms Inn to relax after a day or two in the Park.

Room Tip: If you like art there is a cabin there for artists. ( A/C works fine in all cabins!) If you want a...

I stayed here with a friend during my visit to Joshua Tree. We stayed in the Apache Plume, an adobe cabin on the easternmost end of the grounds (which meant stunning sunrises right outside our patio). The grounds themselves are charming--the hotel is in an oasis on the edge of the park. It has a decent-sized pool which I attempted to use exactly once, only to be defeated by the cold (the desert in February is decidedly not hot). The room had a fireplace (which meant s'mores) and a separate little dressing room where the closet was, which was nice for some extra privacy. The heating system took a while to warm up but kept us toasty even when the temperatures dropped into the 20's at night. We ate at the restaurant our first night there. The food was tasty but definitely overpriced (even by our jaded NYC standards). Margaritas were spotty--excellent the first night, really bad on an afternoon two days into our stay. Overall, this place is cute and very convenient to the park. I'd stay there again.

I travel to 29 Palms for business, and discovered this inn last trip and will never stay at a boring chain hotel there again. You get your own funky bungalow (mine was purple) with plenty of silence, a crackling fire laid out for you each night (fireplaces in most of the rooms), birds flitting around the cacti and palm trees just outside your door each morning, and reliably good food grown in the garden and served up in the restaurant, poolside, each evening. Add live music at the restaurant, a very eclectic mix of hippies, Los Angelenos on weekend getaways, Marines, and the odd European family, and you get the best experience in 29 Palms, hands down. Don't expect wi-fi in your room or a new flat screen TV - just enjoy being in the desert.

Room Tip: Hotel website has descriptions of the rooms. Some are around the oasis, some closer to the desert, f...

Some are freestanding adobes, some are duplexes, one is Japanese-style and one even has it's own deck over the pond. The Inn is situated in an oasis on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park. We stay here every November and really enjoy watching the migratory birds that gather at the oasis. If you need TV and all the amenities you should look elsewhere, but if you like character and charm, you'll love it here.

The 29 Palms Inn is a fantastic place to base your visit to Joshua Tree National Park, and other places of interest in the High Desert. The heritage cabins even come complete with fireplaces! The restaurant on site is a great place to dine, with a woonderful menu at reasonable prices, and interesting diners including many local residents.

Room Tip: Go for one of the 8 pueblo bungalows built in the early 1950's
