I am so grateful to Spin and Margie's for creating this beautiful, unique space, for booking me into a room at the last minute, and for the care attention to detail at this wonderful place. The best room, the best sunsets, the best park, the best time. Thank you.

We loved the quirky and fun vibe which added to the overall Joshua Tree experience! The entrance really feels like a secret hideaway (tricky the first time) but it is really fun to pull off the road into an oasis of fun colors and desert decor. There is plenty of parking and different patios for lounging and star-gazing. Our suite...

We booked Suite #3 for two nights while visiting Joshua Tree. When we first arrived we were excited to find that the room and the grounds far exceeded our expectations. I immediately went crazy snapping photos of everything there! We had the luxury of being the only ones there on property for the first night, and it was amazing! My...

We got really lucky! We were the only ones there the night we stayed. (Not that there isn't ample room for everyone to have their own space on the property. There's lots of space! It was nice to have the place to ourselves though.) What a great find! Such perfect outdoor areas to relax and look up at the sky....

I had the pleasure of staying in Suite #1 for one night this past Sunday. I wish it had been for longer. Adorable. Clean. Terrific shower. The complimentary coffee provided was delicious. There was no creamer for the coffee but I didn't really miss it. Sitting out in the patio and enjoying the morning air was a treat while enjoying...

Loved the cabin, very beautiful grounds design. Close to Joshua Tree park entrances and to the town itself, though far enough away to experience the desert. Private partially enclosed yard perfect for watching the sunset or late night star gazing. Only complaint was that we had a very hard time finding the place. If you go, set the destination in...

As others have pointed out, this is a perfect place to return to after days spent out in the park or elsewhere. We stayed in Suite #3 and were delighted with everything about it. The WiFi was fast worked perfectly -- for when you really need to get on the internet. The kitchen was very well equipped and we also...

Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway was the perfect nest for me during a business/family trip to JT. The courtyard provided a wonderful gathering place for a family and friends dinner, and my room was my very comfortable quiet space just steps away. Lovely, artistically designed rooms and grounds for relaxing. Kitchenette allowed me to relax over a quiet breakfast in...

We loved this funky, unique, comfortable inn! This was the perfect place to come home to after a day in the park. . we highly recommend it! The rooms were spacious and the bed was super comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a meal. And the grounds themselves were super cute. . definitely a hidden gem!

We recently stayed in suite #1, the largest suite on the property (sleeps 4). It was clean, nicely decorated, well maintained, with a lovely private patio. It was spacious (except the bathroom -- pretty cramped) and had three doors to the outside. The kitchen was very well stocked with a good selection of plates, cups, pots and pans, etc, so...
