This is like our second home. It is everything we want in a getaway. We go back every year, especially when we need to recharge. It is clean, cozy and has everything one needs to escape. The rooms and grounds are adorable in a desert-fun style. The kitchens are well-equipped to make for a wonderful isolated romantic or family vacation...

Came with friends and we stayed in Sonoran Traveler-which was comfortable and charming. Just like last time, Spin and Margie had thought of everything we might need. Great location for hiking, a night out at Pappy and Harriet's, an Integratron experience and one more visit to Noah Purifoy's magical space.In all, a great trip.

What a find! The location is great for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area. We stayed in the Sonoran Suite for two nights and found it perfect. The Suite was spacious, tastefully decorated, and extremely clean. The kitchenette allowed us the flexibility to eat in after a long day of hiking and to enjoy the sunsets from...

For anyone tired of staying in generic chain hotels, this place is great. Well equipped, has everything you would need if you want to have breakfast or even a full meal. Comfortable with a nice private patio in our unit. No housekeeping though, you have to make your own bed!

Stayed in cabin 5 for 3 nights. Loved the privacy. Room was clean and all amenities were as described. The back patio was definitely a bonus. Perfect location to the park entrances. Would stay here again, no question!

Spin & Margies is great! Very unique hotel/retreat. So welcoming, cozy and quirky. Margie and staff were very accessible to meet all our needs. This place has character you won't find just anywhere. Very comfortable and such a relaxing atmosphere. The grounds are meticulously kept up and offer a "retreat" atmosphere. The town of Joshua Tree feels set back in...

Great little set up with full kitchen, bath, and Romy living and sleeping area. The grounds are pleasant to spend time in after a day in the desert. Nearby residents that are good: Crisis Café for breakfast/lunch, 29Palms Inn for dinner

We had an excellent couple of nights staying in suite 3 at Spin and Margie's. The accommodation was really well done, with some good use of space and neat decor. The private outdoor space was great - good for sunset in the evening and breakfast in the morning. The wider grounds that surround the suites are really well done, and...

The room and facilities at Spin and Margies was excellent, we were comfortable and it was a great space inside and out including cooking our own food. We used the property as a great base for our hiking trip in the wonderful Joshua Tree National Park
