Spin and Margie's was a perfect spot for our three day visit to Joshua Tree NP. It is located on the north side of the park in between the two main north park entrances, so it's very conveniently located for access. It's also close enough...More

Thank you, we do our best : ) When you do return we will have a new in-ground solar heated pool which should stay at 83 degrees all year long. We might get to spend more time hanging out with our guests this way. Cheers,...More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in mid March, while hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. We stayed in unit #1, which is spacious, attractive, and well-furnished, and was very clean. The shower is phone booth-size, and the shower head is too...More

We very rarely have a comment about sound issues but you are correct that we as a commercial business are about 200 yards off of the 29 Palms Highway. That said, most guests don't notice this. We also host outdoor weddings on our grounds, and...More

Do NOT come here after dark if at all possible due to the driving speeds on 29 Palms Highway. Please be forewarned that when you prepare to make the right turn, you might miss the road because it's not well marked. You have to start...More

It's true our Inn (not BandB) is on/off of Highway 62, most every business in Joshua Tree is off of the 62. We are a rural village with a main thoroughfare that accesses each dirt road off of the highway. It's the desert and rural...More

No, it’s not the four seasons with views of the Eiffel Tower. But Spin and Margie’s is definitely a cute, off the beaten path, unique place to stay. Great place to stay for visiting Joshua Tree. Very close to both northern entrances which gives you...More

We are more like the 3 Seasons with a view of Joshua Tree National Park : ) Thank you for sharing your insights and kind review. Good to know about the sound problem. We do have cement block walls between the drywall. Folks are usually...More

I just got back from a long weekend in Joshua Tree and I feel compelled to write a 5-star review about Spin and Margie's (not that they need it). We got there on Friday at around 5pm and Stacey welcomed us and showed us around....More

Unfortunately we do not have laundry services at the Inn. There is a laundromat in downtown Joshua Tree that is open 7 days a week.
