We stayed in the "haunted" room where Graham Parsons died from a drug over dose in the bathroom. The room is decorated with photos and signed objects and has a special ambiance that we really liked. The hotel also has a Donovan room and a EmmyLou Harris room and a John Wayne room. You might say the hotel is slightly shabby but my guess is the Joshua Tree Inn was like this in it's heyday and we would not have it any other way. My only complaint would be that the air conditioner needed more power. We will be returning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Joshua Tree Inn, built in 1950, is a Hacienda Style inn conveniently located just six miles from the grandeur of Joshua Tree National Park. The Inn has long been known for the warmth, charm, and comfortable lodging it provides for guests visiting California's extraordinary Mojave Desert. The Inn is laid out in a square horseshoe that provides privacy for all of our guests. All of our eleven rooms are on ground level, facing our desert courtyard and large pool. Our decor is eccentrically eclectic. The Inn is the site of the legendary Gram Parsons Room, where the beloved and respected musician/songwriter spent his last hours. Room 8 still offers a quintessential "Cosmic American Experience" to fans of the father of Alt-country rock. On the peach colored wall hangs the same mirror and picture that hung in the room back in 1973. The Joshua Tree Inn features a large swimming pool, as well as our peaceful zen courtyard & koi pond, plus dining room access & gift shop. We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, & morning snacks for our guests.All of our charming rooms include: Private Patios ... more less
