Cute sort of motor lodge motel. Rooms clean except I was a little freaked out by the bedspread. Very nice staff. Not much in the way of amenities - had to get the blow dryer from the office - but the room did have a fridge and microwave. Nice firm bed.

No frills, affordable for the area, clean, just what you need to get some shuteye before the next day's adventures (or winding down). It fronts on the main road so some loud cars might be intrusive, and make sure to keep your car secure (someone attempted to steal one of our bicycles overnight, but the rack it was on was locked. This is NOT the fault of the motel, just a reminder that thieves abound).

It was close to the Joshua Tree National Park entrance and restaurants. We used it for a place to sleep, the bed was comfortable and it was very quite. Over all it was a very nice stay just to spend the night. The bathroom window could have used a curtain as the morning sun came in it was very bright in our room and woke us up.
