This cute retro motel sits in a genuine oasis, surrounded by desert. Our room was an adobe cabin, wonderfully cool inside (despite the noisy AC unit, ha ha, we appreciated the cool room). Very clean, updated bathroom, comfortable bed. The pool was sparkling clean; we enjoyed our breakfast poolside with our dog under the table. The breakfast buffet was simple...

We used 29 Palms Inn as home-base for our trip to Joshua Tree NP. We stayed in the "Fault Line" room, which was great for a couple, and right near the restaurant so very short walk to and fro. Like 20 or 30 steps. Also very close to the JTNP Visitor Center & entrance. Its a fun place to stay,...

The 29 Palms Inn has lots of different room options, most in stand alone cement cabins, most with private patios or porches. The room have wonderfully soft pillows, nicely furnished. They are dog friendly for extra $35 which might be for up to a week. Behaved dogs are allowed poolside and at outdoor restaurant tables. The pool is nothing special...

This place is awesome. We stayed in one of the little cabins and it was cute and cozy. The staff is helpful and nice. The inn is very close the Joshua Tree National Park so it's super convenient. If you need/want a lot of technology, it's probably not the right place for you. If you want a generic hotel experience,...

This place was a unique experience. Quirky and fun, the property is tranquil and has some very interesting history behind it. The breakfast was unexpectedly delicious. Definitely a great break from cookie-cutter hotels. I will be back!

I stayed at this Inn for 5 nights recently as part of a hiking group. I was in Cabin X which was very good, clean and had everything that I needed, It took a while to figure out the heating and cooling systems, both of which were needed during my stay, however in addition to the air conditioner/heating system there...

I've got totally mixed feelings about this place. The location is perfect, the staff are friendly, the restaurant is good, and the grounds are interesting. However, the rooms themselves have some issues. Old rattling windows and thin shades that don't keep the light out. Also, though staff are friendly, we had some issues with our reservation and staff were not...

I would really like the opportunity to connect with you directly, to make sure I have the correct travel dates, and so that I can follow up appropriately. If you could send me a quick note to heidi@29palmsinn.com that'd be great. Best, Heidi

We were looking forward to our stay at this funky whimsical inn. It looked like fun on the website. While it was cute, we had a horrible night. First off, with the night temps in the 40's, the bare concrete floor was just cold. The room had a wall of glass doors with an outer wooden door standing open. It...

Yes... it is in the middle of the Oasis of Mara... a real live oasis on its grounds. It's a conglomeration of adobes, cabins, houses, etc. We stayed in the 'Y' unit of a three room adobe... with a fireplace, a super comfy bed, a nice bathroom and a private patio with a view of the Joshua Tree NP.
