Old but good

Pros: Clean and convenient.
Cons: Could use some paint and new furniture
The hotel could use a refresh, but everything was clean and comfortable and the price was right. The location is great - it is less than 10 minutes from the western entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

Only needed a hotel for overnight

We just needed a hotel to stay overnight while we visited Joshua Tree National Park. This hotel perfectly fit that need. A place to sleep, shower, and keep your extra stuff while at the park. The rooms didn't insulate the sound very well so if you're a light sleeper you may have trouble staying asleep.

Good Place for the Price

This is my second stay here. The price is right. The Motel is clean and well taken care of. Location is great for a trip to Joshua Tree National Park. It is an older Motel but is well taken care of. WIFI works good, Frig and miro wave in room are a plus. The staff is willing to help any way you need. Worth the price.

clean budget motel

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet

A great inexpensive place to stay

Exactly what we were looking for: Inexpensive...Easy to get to ... All the amenities we needed for a single nights stay..... Clean.... Well lit. Its still nice to stay at a place like this where the manager apparently lives and all the little things seem to get taken care of.
