We were looking for something reasonable in 29 Palms and we were lucky to have found this nice motel. The price was average for a motel room, but better than in other motels in this town, probably due to the fact that it is so close to Joshua Tree NP . The room was clean, we had a working microwave and a fridge, the bed was comfy and large, sheets clean. Shower was hot and had ok pressure and they provided a little bar of soap and some shampoo. The wi-fi worked very well and was fast, we could park the car just outside of the room. It was a very hot day and we decided to take a dip in the pool. It's a very nice, well kept pool under the palmtrees and it is open all night long so we went there at 11 pm and had the whole place to ourselves! There are lights there so the time of the day was not a problem. It was great. The young man who checked us in was helpful and gave us some tips about where to go out and buy groceries and get cheap gas. The aircon was a bit loud but this is the only thing that could have been better. All in all, I recommend this place, it's a great, budget friendly choice in Twentynine Palms.
It also seems that the independent movie "Twenytinine Palms" used this motel as one of the filming locations. I am 99% sure.
