Loved this clean, little, funky motel with a heart stopping front "patio" view of sunrise, and we could have stayed in bed and watched the big orange glove pop over the horizon out of the huge windows! Friendly and helpful, great morning coffee too. Close to hiking in Joshua Tree National Park at Indian Cove, and just a short hop to Oasis Park Visitor Center.

Room Tip: our room at the end, farthest away from the road, south was most quiet with only dull road sounds...

I recently stayed at the Harmony motel because the accommodations on the Marine Corps base were full, and I wanted a room that had a kitchen. What I discovered was an awesome and overlooked billeting opportunity for travelers to the area. The inn is quiet and has the feel of a small family-operated establishment where you could probably leave your door unlocked all day and be fine. The rooms have a large glass window facing East, giving you the most beautiful sunrises you could ask for. The pool and hot tub are well kept and are PERFECT for the post-workout soak. The staff informed me of a nearby Oasis in Joshua Tree National Park, and twice I ran there and back from the hotel (it’s probably about 7 miles total with some decent elevation changes). The proximity to this awesome, not-so-well-known landmark is one thing that makes me want to stay at the Harmony every time I have to visit 29 Palms. Let’s see….treadmill in a big chain hotel, or desert oasis run right behind your motel? Let’s see…. long unfriendly hallways in a big chain hotel, or a nice table and chairs just outside your door where you can watch the sunrise/sunset and down a bottle of beer/wine? Yep, this little motel wins every time.

This motel was better than we expected when we first saw the place. It looks a little run down from the road and my husband sent me in to check it out before he would join me! Going in the entryway, all doubts were erased - this place has personality! The owner showed me around and she is lovely and kind. Rooms are large enough and each room opens onto a small patio that faces the pool and hot tub. The bathrooms are small, kind of like a bathroom in your first apartment with a shower stall, vanity sink and toilet. There is a common room where you can eat breakfast, use the fridge and microwave, etc. There are also reviews of the place and articles about it and the owner. We used the fridge to store our food but didn't eat there. We were there just for one night and it was fine. I think it would be a fun place to be with friends or as a single or couple who was staying longer than we did if you are the type to want to meet other travelers in the common area or patios or at the pool, etc. There are other, more traditional options in the area if you are not a person who likes to take chances on an individual place, but I'm glad we did. A regular motel would have been OK for our overnight stay, but it think the Harmony Motel would be great for a longer visit. I would go back. Internet in the room wasn't too great, though.

Stayed 7 days at Harmony Motel. I was only going to be there 2 days, but feel in love with the peacefulness. Price was good and Ash the owner was professional as I felt safe during my stay. I enjoyed the hot tub each evening the pool area during the day, common room each morning and the view out my room window. The location was awesome so I could visit Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs I enjoyed the meals at 29 Palms Hotel, Rib Co, Andreas and the Bistro. Nice mini-vacation break on my long road trip. Thank you Ash your place shows you take pride in your Harmony Motel.

Stayed at the Harmony Motel for 2 nights, couldn't have been better. Spacious room with comfortable bed and small kitchen, a/c, and access to a cute lima bean pool. The price is great, and it's a short, 10 min. ride to Joshua Tree National Park. The motel is small, so you get a lot of privacy, and can sit on the patio outside your room reading a book or writing as the sun sets. The kitchen was a great add-on, though I'm sorry (not sorry) to admit we might've opted for multiple trips to Del Taco instead. The proprietress was really warm and welcoming. We hope to return soon!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a kitchen, but you can ask for one if you'd like one.

We visited the Harmony Motel during the last Christmas Holiday’s for one full week. We booked a room with a full kitchen, at a very affordable rate, we shopped around the area and this motel was priced best for our needs. The kitchen is separated from the room almost alike a min apartment, it was larger than my home kitchen in New York, full stocked with utensils and appliances’. We were able to cook three meals a day and also entertain some of our friends that stayed at the motel.
We loved the grounds everything was well taken care. Our rooms were exceptionally cleaned. We loved the outdoor patio, from which we could have a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise, and the hot tub, to soak in the evening s and watch the stars after a long day of hiking. The rooms are huge although it has everything like a regular motel; the décor is simple yet very homey. The beds were comfortable giving us very restful nights of sleep. There is also an internet room that has a library, and we had free Wi-Fi excess in our rooms, the motel also has a common area for guests to have coffee, or prepare a light meal if they do not want a room with a kitchen, which our friends used.
The staff was great, very good housekeeping and guest services. Ash, knows the area exceptionally well, she directed us to all the hikes in the national park that we would enjoy, and restaurants and fun things to do in the area. My favorite hike was the 49 Palms oasis less than a mile away from the motel, the motel is very close to the east entrance from Highway 62-(this is the main entrance of the park).
I would certainly recommend the motel to all our friends, family and travelers because of the amenities that it offer, the incredible desert experience, and affordability. We will certainly go back.
