I spent the night here with my son and we both loved this quirky place. It's at the edge of town so in a quiet spot despite being close to a fast busy road that goes through town.
The pool sits behind a tin and wood fence that can be seen all over the place, not modern but very suited to the desert location and recycling old materials. There's a small garden with weird bits and bobs in as you walk to reception that suits the place. The girl at reception was very helpful. She gave us some tips on where in Joshua tree park to visit and took the time to draw a map as well. We're not likely to be in the area again but of we are we will return.
I paid a little more than for a sterile 'same old' chain motel but it was worth it.
One point for them to note though is that as the location sits on top of a hill it gets the sun very early. They need some darker curtains (drapes) to block the light. I added a spare bed cover from the room but that was light and didn't help much.
