We stayed at the Harmony Motel after a day exploring Joshua Tree National Park and we loved it. It's an old-school, cozy motel with a great view over 29 Palms and a really relaxing atmosphere. Clean and comfortable with lovely people and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend.

My boyfriend and I drove cross country from Rhode Island to San Francisco. This was hands down our favorite place to stay. Unfortunately, we could only stay one night before continuing on our journey but it was by far the most clean and comfortable location we stayed at. I will never forget its nice staff, relaxing outdoor atmosphere and using...

The rooms are old, furnishing at least in my room was something you would find at a garage sale. The chair was about to fall apart, the shower was in the same condition, the DSL the owner has is super slow. Also it has more of the feel of a hostel then a Motel, the owner is always hovering around...

Here's an authentic motel in the old-school mode. It's not fancy, but it's comfortable and the owner, Ash, enhances the stay with warmth and good ideas for local activities and food. We were immediately attracted to its position on a hilltop as you drive East into 29 Palms. And that was BEFORE we learned the band U2 stayed here when...

My teenage son and I chose this motel located in 29 Palms on a whim and our expectations were blown away. The owner, Ash, has taken this small, picturesque motel and truly made it a dream come true for travelers like myself. Everyone we met was extremely nice and very attentive. The grounds are very clean, the rooms comfortable and...

All the charm of a B & B but more privacy. Drinking coffee on the private patio in the morning is heaven. The room was very clean and very comfortable, and all the bedding looked new. The staff really go out of their way to help you with anything you need. The pool area is wonderful, and sitting in the...

I stayed two nights at the Harmony Motel. The highlight is the POOL! Sooo refreshing after a hot day in the park and surprisingly very clean. The hot tub was clean too but the jets don't work so it's like soaking in hot water(pump needs replacing). The grounds are well-maintained. My bedding was questionable. Sheets were old and pilled and...

Dear Traveller, Thank you for writing a review. We are glad that you enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, and the grounds. However there seems to have been some disatisfaction with some of the amentities due to a lack of communication to management.

Love this place, just what we wanted. Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The lady that owns the place (Ash) is super nice and very willing to give you information on where to eat, her favorite trails, and just to chat.
