My wife and I are visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We like family owned businesses. The owner is exceptionally nice and very helpful. The property is neat and clean. The rates are reasonable, and the location is convenient. It is located on the west edge of 29 Palms, so you are not far from restaurants , etc. the added bonus... More

The only reason to stay here is that it's cheap. Midweek was $79 but it is an old, tired joint. Noisy from highway. Dingy rooms with a tiny TV. Bathroom from 1950. The bed was nice and firm and it was clean. It's close to entrance to Joshua Tree but I suspect there are better places to stay in 29... More

Dear guest thank you for writing the review.

We stayed here after visiting Joshua Tree National Park. I would say no major complaints or praises. Pros....price $97.00 for king. It was also clean. If staying on a budget....good choice. Cons....air conditioner would not come back on second time after bringing temp down. The television was also quite small.

We stayed here for four nights in Room 6. This is our second visit to the motel. We discovered this place three years ago when we were supposed to go camping in Joshua Tree National Park and couldn't get in because Ted Cruz shut down the federal government (and by extension all of the National Parks). So we booked in... More

This is a very cozy motel close to Joshua Tree NP, located just outside Twentynine Palms. Our room even featured a very well equipped kitchen. Staff is very friendly. We forgot two rings when we left the motel, and the manager even organized shipping of the rings back home to Switzerland! Thanks a lot!

I booked the room for the U2 connection, and enjoyed it as a slice of americana. A nice 24 hour staffed motel in the Mojave desert, just a couple miles from the entrance to Joshua Tree national park, and the Oasis of Mara. The room was clean, with 24 hour shared library and kitchen areas for guests. A non-smoking motel,... More

This motel is situated just a minute from the main centre of town and you feel like you are the only people around in the middle of the desert.

Cute little motel with various rooms to suit all. Set a few minutes from town and a choice of services but has the feeling of being really secluded. A bonus to find out U2 stayed here when writing the Joshua Tree album -cool.. . Lovely swimming pool with backdrop of mountains and friendly helpful owner.

If you can't camp then this small motel is great for an overnight. Bed was comfortable but sheets synthetic and towels need to be replaced. Have not used pool but looked very clean. Easy to find...right on US 62

The Harmony Motel is less than two miles away from the headquarters of the historical Joshua Tree National Park and is just one mile away from the trailhead entrance of the landmark 49 Palms Oasis, one of the five oases of the National Park. At Harmony, guests will find themselves just minutes away from rockclimbing and hiking excursions in and around Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms. 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. The motel offers competitive and affordable rates for a home away from home stay in Twentynine Palms. The motel has eight units. Five units have full kitchenettes, and one unit is a cabin -- a great option for guests looking for more of an AirBnB vacation rental accomodation with privacy. The rooms are simple, warmly decorated, and large with high ceilings. Each room comes fully furnished and equipped with heating and cooling units. Motel guests have access to a large refreshing swimming pool with an adjacent hot tub/jacuzzi that allows beautiful views for stargazing under the dark desert skies. The Harmony Motel has a library that provides free Internet service, books, and magazines. Adjacent to the library is a common area in which guests are treated to complimentary coffee each morning. Guests may also access this area to prepare your own light meals as utensils and appliances are provided for your use. ... more   less
