We stayed in the Gram Parsons Room 8. It was really more for my boyfriend, a musician and huge Gram fan, but I totally enjoyed it myself. The surroundings were beautiful and the pool was large, crystal clear and a great place to spend a hot day. We loved having a little private patio to drink wine and look at...

The Joshua Tree Inn is a beautifully maintained historic property near the western entrance of Joshua Tree National Park. This is not a modern hotel. The rooms are small and quaint with loads of character. You will not find modern amenities like jet tubs but what you will find is a peaceful spirit and beautiful grounds to enjoy. The staff...

We stayed at the Fox Bungalow which is 4 miles away from the JTI. When we first walked in, I was a bit deflated. The room itself is much more worn than it appears on the website, the vibe was tired and unkempt. The bed comforter had stains. There was red paint peeling off the floor. The bathroom carpet was...

Thank you for noting the great wilderness location,the beautiful pine-studded setting and awesome pool area. This privately owned cabin,on the edge of the National Park,is booked through the Joshua Tree Inn at $169.00 per night (not $200.,as you stated). There are no hotel services,like a safe,because it's a wilderness cabin,not a hotel. We are sorry that our strong high desert...

I recently had the opportunity to stay at Garske Manor which is a privately owned vacation home booked through the inn. What a wonderful place to stay. It's pretty much a dream home. It's close to the Park entrance in Yucca Valley, downtown Joshua Tree, downtown antiquing/thrift store shopping in Yucca Valley, and close to Pioneer town and the world...

The lobby and public rooms are absolutely charming with posters and memorabilia of Gram Parsons, the country rock innovator who died here in 1973. There's a small shrine near that particular room. Deep bowers of wisteria grow up around the covered walkways. There's also a fish pond and an outdoor fire place in the middle of a side yard bedecked...

Great location for Joshua Tree National Park. The history of the Inn is based on the sad demise of Gram Parsons American Folk singer. There is shrine within the gardens. Overpriced considering the general need for renovation and updating. Bed was hard and not comfortable, but overall we enjoyed the atmosphere, friendliness and the locality.

We've stayed in both the Hacienda Pines and Fox room. Each visit has carried blessed memories. A beautiful place to quietly meditate, go for a walk, explore, swim, write, hang out with pals or visit the incredible Joshua Tree Park a mile away. There are also good restaurants, health food stores and antiques on the main highway a few minutes...

If you are a fan of the typical chain hotel, I would suggest you stay elsewhere, but if you are looking for a fun, funky, eclectic inn that really gives you a flavor of the town, this is it. The inn is hacienda style, with a big zen garden courtyard with a fish pond.. It has a nice outdoor pool...

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
