We were late arriving and recieved a warm welcome by name byJohn (very impressed)! He had tons of local info, historical stories and ideas for us to check out including Salton Sea. We were here for the Desert Generator party and show at Pappy and Harriets and enjoyed the comfortable bed, the super clean room and the unique experience. There...

The motel is charming in that it's been nicely refurbished and decorated with location-appropriate pieces such as Navajo and Mexican blankets. The bed was comfortable, they offer a small refrigerator, offer free coffee/tea, free Wifi and the office is open all night. The a/c is a wall unit. But there were a couple of things that made it too expensive...

What can you do...you want to go to a concert at Pappy & Harriet's and enjoy yourself so you stay at the motel across the parking lot. That is the only reason I can think of to stay here. The room was cold in both temperature and vibe.

This place is awesome, relaxing, entertaining, and quite different from anywhere else you'll ever stay. Pioneertown was once a movie set for late great western actors, and a sound stage for The Sons of the Pioneers, this movie set was created to be self contained. In other words, when films were being made here, it was too far of a...

Much has been said about the Pioneertown Motel's western film-set look and vibe. And it's true. It's very picturesque and well-styled. But the motel's walls are also pretty thin so you can join neighbor's conversations. And it's so basic that there are virtually no services or amenities to speak of, including any on-site dining (which during the holiday season was...

Not suitable for people who want TV and Ironing boards in their room but for people who want a rustic couple of days with a famous Bar Pappa and...

The Pioneertown Motel is definitely a one off! The room was tastefully and simply furnished. We were able to watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from right outside our room. This was the perfect setting to complement a visit to Joshua Tree National Park. The wifi is fantastic however if you need cable tv there is none. As a tv fan...

Was just passing thru on a road trip but so glad to have found the Pioneertown motel. It was very quaint and perfectly located - an easy walk to Pappy & Harriets for an evening of fun. I would definitely stay here again!
