This quaint place has very cute decor, a lovely pool and jacuzzi area and perfect proximity to the park. We stayed in room #0, which has a large fully functional kitchen. This was a fantastic help to us as my husband and I brought our 6 year old and 2 year old.
There are some minor and mainly inexpensive changes that could be made to vastly improve the experience however:
The owner can be cold and somewhat inflexible.
Simply changing the shower head would do wonders. It was a nightmare of a bathing experience between the lack of water pressure and inability to stabilize the water temperature.
The mattresses are awfully old and beat up. So, in the morning, our bodies were no better off than if we had camped and slept with only sleeping bags on the ground.
The pillows were too few and horrendous in quality!!!!
Joshua Tree is almost a guaranteed win, no matter where you stay. And I would love to say I would return to the Harmony Motel, but I wouldn't be able to bear the awful sleep again.
