In my opinion this is the best place to stay in Joshua Tree. This has a lovely local, friendly and warm feel. The rooms are clean and large, and the pool and spa area is perfect for unwinding and watching the sunset over the mountains. It also has a communal kitchen/library area which is great if you've been on the...

We loved our stay here. The owners were welcoming and accommodating. Clean rooms and cool atmosphere. Nice hot tub to soak in after a day full of hiking. AND U2 stayed here- can't beat that piece of music history! Nestled in the beautiful mountains outside of Joshua Tre NP. We would totally stay here again.

After a long day of desert driving, the Harmony Motel was a great resting spot. I loved the quirky and charming layout/decor and retro feel - real keys, even! Ash was a wonderful hostess and the room was cozy and spotless. You can walk right out back and have magnificent views of Joshua Tree park. Keep in mind that the...

I turned 40 and my mom turned 75, and halfway in between was the long Presidents' Day weekend, and my sister was desperate to get out of the rain and into the desert. So we planned a trip to Joshua Tree National Park. I put out word on Facebook - "Facebook, where should I stay?" - and my friend Laura...

I stayed here with my sister for a night before driving through Joshua Tree National Park. The owner, Ash, was extremely welcoming and accommodating. This was just as affordable as local chain hotels but has tons more charm and history. Harmony Motel is located right near the national park entrance making an early start very easy! Guests are welcome to...

I have never been to this area and had no idea where to stay for a Joshua Tree National Park trip. This place was perfect! It is located in between to park entrances. So, you can drive to one, explore the park and exit at the other entrance and you are still not far from home. The motel is also...

The name expresses the theme: harmony; but the aging facility needs work. Start with electrical and plumbing. Then parking and guest access. Finally, it's the little things that matter. Needs better bedding, coffee in the morning (as promised), light bulbs, and hot tub maintenance.

We stayed for 3 nights and can't wait to return. We arrived late Monday night and the proprietor showed us the facilities and our room.

We stayed 3 nights in mid May and really loved it here as a comfortable stay and as an excellent base to explore Joshua Tree Nat'l Park - only camping in the park would have allowed for better accessibility. There are only 6 rooms in this sweet just-off-the-highway motel which lends to the charm making it close and personal. In...

I've stayed twice at the Harmony Motel- one time in a room, and one time in the Jack Kerouac cabin. I've had a great experience both times.

The motel is less than one mile away from the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps (USMC) military base and is less than two miles away from Sky's The Limit, the local nature observatory.
