I've enjoyed the 29 Palms Inn immensely over the decades. It's wonderful in every season. To start off, the Margaritas at the charming bar (are the chili lights still up?) take the edge off the 10-hour drive. In spring and summer the pool has a retro glamor appeal which makes the heat bearable, almost festive. In the winter, respite and a warm place for shelter. I have happy memories, my face crammed into the corner window of the Hermitage, watching the winds swirl leaves and such around while coyotes howled. It's a magical place.
Best food in the valley with the most culture. Rooms are unique, charming and comfortable. The cottages are separated from each other with lots of gorgeous desert to wander in. Stay here and you'll love it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Established in 1928 at the historic Oasis of Mara in Twentynine Palms, the 29 Palms Inn has welcomed guests to the beautiful California Desert for almost a century. Across the 70-acre property, looking out to the mountains of Joshua Tree National Park, the 29 Palms Inn offers an eclectic mix of guest accommodations. Family owned and operated for five generations now, the Inn offers a kind of retreat that’s hard to compare with other places. You’ll stay not in one of a hundred cookie-cutter rooms, but one of a few wood frame cabins built in the 1920’s, adobe bungalows from the 1930’s, or full amenity guest houses built in the 1950’s. The vibrant poolside restaurant is open daily for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, with a fresh menu that specializes in seafood, steaks, daily fish and pasta specials, and great vegetarian options. Sourdough bread is baked daily on premise, and seasonal fruits and vegetables are harvested from the Inn’s very own Faultline Farm. ... more less
