Pretty unique place. There are few amenities but the rooms are decorated in unusual styles and everything was clean and handy. The phone booking process was fun and the owner was cordial. We are very pleased with this choice for a weekday getaway.

Was not sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by the charm of Spin and Margie's. We stayed two nights and so enjoyed the character of the hideaway. We were in #1 and the size was perfect with good kitchen space and choices of sitting outside in private courtyard or in the other areas around the property. We would...

A classically quirky, funked out desert hideaway, Spin and Margie's is true to its name, off the 29 palms hwy down a short stretch of sandy dirt road and only a few minutes drive from Joshua Tree National Park's west entrance gate. The Western Nomad suite we stayed in offered plenty of room to lounge, cook and cool ourselves down...

I can't really add anything new to the previous reviews. I loved staying there. I stayed there while my husband was off camping and felt very comfortable and relaxed the entire time. Having a little kitchen meant I could get fresh fruitand bread and local Joshua Tree Coffee Company coffee at the organic grocery for breakfast. Leftovers from the great...

Spin and Margie's is a magical place! It's charming, inviting, peaceful, tasteful and well thought out- down to the last detail. The suites are cozy, clean, nicely decorated and well stocked. The grounds are charming and accommodating for R&R and breathtaking nature gazing. Everyone is super thoughtful and friendly. Spin and Margie's feels like it's own little world and a...

I love Joshua Tree National Park. I would not be visiting this sublime destination without the availability of the amazing suites at Spin and Margie's. My typical day starts with coffee in my room or in the suite's individual courtyard or by the fountain in the main courtyard or out by the fish pond. So one of my toughest decisions...

We stayed in #5 (Desert Rambler)..the biggest room. Very nice, with private enclosed area as well as very nice courtyard in the front. We were four adults and felt private and homey at the same time. The kitchen was very easy to cook in..the grill outside was immaculate. The grounds were perfect for the desert setting. The place was full...

On our one month tour this was the most colourful & quirky place we stayed. Small Mexican village feel to the place. Facilities great & we made full use of the BBQ. Cabin & beds were clean & comfortable.Mindy was very friendly & gave us good tips about area. Very peaceful location with interesting garden.

We loved our cozy, homey and attractive suite. The whole place had unique and tasteful touches - so much more personal than a chain hotel. We loved sitting by the common area fountain and watching the birds, and roamed the grounds taking photos. The linens seemed new, the bed comfortable, and the whole place seemed so well kept up. We...

This was my first stay at Spin and Margie's and I will certainly be back. The room I stayed in (room 2) was very well appointed, with a nice kitchen (microwave, toaster, two burner stove, fridge, large sink, etc), a nice comfortable bed, entertainment amenities (tv, dvd player, cd player), and a large extra room that was perfect for meals....
