I stumbled upon this amazing Oasis one time after visiting Joshua Tree National Park. It is a bit secluded which was exactly what I needed. A perfect getaway from the Armenian teenage boys who drive 100mph in their BMW's, smog, traffic, bad attitudes, and negative energy in Los Angeles. This place is a little slice of heaven. Quiet, out of the way, and peaceful. You can choose from several cabins on the property which is desert wilderness. Quail and robins will wander around your doorstep at sunrise, jack-rabbits hop around nearby, the breakfast is outstanding at the cafe, and the staff are outgoing and very friendly. They will treat you like family. Bring your smartphone as some cabins have no in-room phones.Remember, 29 Palms, the city, is just a place people stay while visiting the soldiers at the nearby military base. The real reason to drive all the way out here is the Park! There is a small fee for a 5-day pass, but it's worth it. This hotel is charming and as the Brits say, "a bit rustic" , but very clean and cozy! Joshua Tree is one of the great Natural Wonders of the world. I've met travellers from Germany, Holland, Australia ,England, Brazil,Canada, and Russia while hiking inside the park. All nice and generous people who respect the beauty and magic of the land. Feels so good to come back at night to 29 Palms Inn to relax after a day or two in the Park.
