    This is one of the most convenient places to stay near the main entrance and visitor's center for Joshua Tree. It is also a great value for the price. Those accustomed to more traditional or upscale hotels may be taken aback at first glance, but...More

    Very close to the entrance to the national park. Owners are nice, rooms are clean, water is hot, resturants (such as they are in Joshua Tree) were close. The motel is close to Yucca Valley, which has a lot of restaurants and other amenities.

    A basic motel, but room 105 has a large, clean bathroom and 2 Queen beds. For the price, I couldn't ask for more. They give you local coupons. Try the Indian restaurant nearby- another pleasant surprise.

    As Elizabeth said, it is a bit of a drive to Death Valley. However, the area is beautiful. I am not sure if any tours depart from here.
