I think that relaxing is an understatement. I slept like a baby in Gram Parson's (#8) room. Nice hot shower, comfortable bed and my choice of sitting outside in our courtyard or sitting by his shrine. My hands down, absolute favorite stay of our California trip. I didn't want to leave...

Thank you Dee Dee for making this experience truly warm and welcoming. From the first time I called to book the room to the excellent check in experience, I felt like we had come to a magical place. Of course, I am a Gram Parsons fan and wanted to see this place but I also enjoyed the beautiful pool and...

2017 was a wet winter up & down the West Coast! Coming from the Pacific Northwest to Joshua Tree in April was balm for the body & spirit. The Joshua Tree National Park was excellent! But it was so novel and exciting that it took a stay at the Joshua Tree Inn to feel free and unfettered from the cares...

I would stay here anytime I was in the area. Rooms are clean and comfortable. It isn't the Holiday Inn. It's better because of the Charm and everyone is very nice that works here. The Joshua Tree National Park is close by. Great places to eat also nearby. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

The Joshua Tree Inn was built in 1950 and it is representative of that time period. The rooms surround a courtyard and pool. When we were there in mid March the whole place was in bloom. The flowers were beautiful and the whole place was scented by them. One of the attractions of the place for me was the connection...

We chose this establishment for its proximity to Joshua Tree National Park. I read the reviews and looked at the photos before booking. We thought it would be nostalgic to stay in an original motor Inn. Now the review. It will be lengthy and fair. Upon check in we were greeted by a very friendly young lady at the front...

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in one of the suites. We loved the place and would recommend it to someone looking for a quite place to stay with a funky & welcoming atmosphere. Our suite was spacious with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and sitting room. We liked that it was different and unique and the staff was friendly....

Right outside of Joshua Tree park. A great place to stay if you want a rustic place with character and history. Nothing fancy (blinds were dusty). But the bed/bath were clean and pleasant. Lots of 60's artifacts and hippy chic -- particularly the lovely flowered bathroom tiles in our room (#10). Desk hours are VERY limited -- be sure to...

We're just wrapping up a two night stay at the Joshua Tree Inn. We've had a great time going to the national park, which is a real wonder. That said, as someone said in another review, they don't make classic style Hacienda hotel anymore. Also, we're music fans and thus place screams music history. This is the place that Gram...

We were expecting a funky hotel in the desert instead got a dingy room that was poorly renovated (huge gaps around the walk out doors that took several tries to lock and dirty windows that I was able to write "wash me" on). The yard was well maintained but the patio private patio was an eyesore. Heater was noisy and...

Thank you for your comments. We are currently renovating the electrical system, re-tiling the pool, re-paving the parking lot and replacing the roof tiles. This has caused dust on windows and debris in some of our private patios. We are very sorry that this maintenance has impacted your stay. We will be finished soon, and we hope that you will...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Joshua Tree Inn, built in 1950, is a Hacienda Style inn conveniently located just six miles from the grandeur of Joshua Tree National Park. The Inn has long been known for the warmth, charm, and comfortable lodging it provides for guests visiting California's extraordinary Mojave Desert. The Inn is laid out in a square horseshoe that provides privacy for all of our guests. All of our eleven rooms are on ground level, facing our desert courtyard and large pool. Our decor is eccentrically eclectic. The Inn is the site of the legendary Gram Parsons Room, where the beloved and respected musician/songwriter spent his last hours. Room 8 still offers a quintessential "Cosmic American Experience" to fans of the father of Alt-country rock. On the peach colored wall hangs the same mirror and picture that hung in the room back in 1973. The Joshua Tree Inn features a large swimming pool, as well as our peaceful zen courtyard & koi pond, plus dining room access & gift shop. We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, & morning snacks for our guests.All of our charming rooms include: Private Patios ... more   less
