We really enjoyed this little inn. It was clean and the grounds were wonderful, there was no one on sight, but we never needed anyone so that was fine for us. There is highway noise and cabin 5 was really bright inside at night from the lights outside shining in. Wonderful place, we highly recommend!

This is the second year that I have spent my Birthday in Joshua Tree and stayed at Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway. S&M is incredibly charming, clean, comfortable and relaxing. We have stayed in rooms 5 & 4, both with their own private desert garden/patios, which are perfect for early morning sunrises and evening star gazing. We spent the first...

Four of us stayed at Spin and Margie's Desert Hideway. We had plenty of space. The rooms are charmingly furnished in desert style and were very clean. We loved the whole atmosphere. Spin, Margie and CJ (room attendant) could not have been more welcoming or helpful.

My wife and I made a quick trip out to Joshua Tree for my birthday weekend for a couple days and really enjoyed staying here. Even though my wife was a little under the weather, the place was very nice for her to rest a day and recuperate. The place is very much self-service. The room is open when you...

What a find! Thanks to tripadvisor we stayed here, and it is beautiful. We stayed in Western nomad no4 cabin and it was gorgeous.

I love staying at Spin and Margie's on my annual fall trip to Joshua Tree. Whenever I bring a first timer to this cute little hideaway, the reaction is always the same: big smiles followed by: "how did you FIND this place??!" Adorable retro decor, fun setting, clean and comfy rooms and great proximity to Joshua Tree NP and town....

When you drive into Spin & Margie's, you are welcomed with vintage Route 66 signage, old license plates, barrels and cactus, and a "WELCOME" sign that makes you feel like you are! Try and arrive during the day so you can really enjoy the ambience in those first few moments. Plus, you might miss the turnoff in the desert darkness....

Spin and Margie's was beautiful. It is decorated with such care, and it is clean, pretty, and a fun place to spend a few days. I came for a week and stayed in the cabin, and ended up staying an extra night because it was so relaxing. The hosts are kind people who care a lot about your comfort. I...
