Good value place to stay in a superb location for Joshua NP - just down the road from the entrance. The rooms are very basic, but the bed was one of the best we have ever had in any hotel, anywhere. Can recommend this place...More

OK for one night stop over after Joshua tree. Rooms big enough for 4. Beds ok although pillows awful! Couldn't get any cold water just hot and warm! Pool nicentre and sat out on picnic benches for pizza tea.

The High Desert Motel was affordable, comfortable and easy. The people working here were great and the housekeeping saved us from leaving our cooler. Good to know there are still genuine people out there.

As Elizabeth said, it is a bit of a drive to Death Valley. However, the area is beautiful. I am not sure if any tours depart from here.
