Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
First, the room that they put us in had a non-functioning heater. When we reported it, they were in kind of disbelief. They moved us to a different room. The heater in that room worked but it sounded like it had birds in it. There is a 2 inch step outside the door that is hard to see at night. My toe hurt all the next day. The TV didn't work. They had to come and fix it. Hot water took a long time to get there and shower was weak. I know this is a small mom and pop operation and they are just trying to make a living, but this room was not worth the money. When part of a motel's neon sign in front is burned out, it's best to avoid.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Vintage motor court style motel near the downtown area of 29 Palms. My room was super cute and clean and had everything I could need - a comfy bed, A/C, a huge TV, microwave, tea/coffee maker, plenty of storage, a big shower head for a luxurious shower, etc. Only 3 stars though because of an incident when I was leaving. Now I understand it is not the motel's job to look out for me but it was pretty thoughtless of them to book a lone male traveler in the room beside mine when pretty much the rest of the place was empty. As a solo female traveler, I experienced every woman's nightmare - I watched the biker dude from next door looking in my window not once but twice. Then when I was leaving, he harassed me as I packed up my car. I have been traveling solo for years and have never felt so scared in all that time. I got out of there as quickly as possible and was shaking so bad I had to pull over and calm down. In light of this, I can't recommend the motel to solo female travelers and I won't be going back. Such a shame since I really liked the motel.
