This place used to be owned by people who care. It is a dump now. The mattresses are a complete joke, rooms were dirty, spider eggs everywhere, towels are old. When we pulled back the sheets there was hair everywhere. Disgusting. The pool is dirty, the lights around the property don't work. It is so sad because it was magical before. We cleaned prior to settling in due to Covid and the amount of dirt we got off the tile floor was disgusting. It is such a shame because there are few places to stay in Joshua Tree. We will be staying a Super 8 for half the money. We go there to enjoy the park so why pay for such neglect and denial. Shame on the new owners. Mindy would be appalled.

We have reported this review, for several reasons: No one by the name of Sebastian, or with that tag line, has stayed with us recently. We never leave rooms or the property in the condition described, as numerous glowing reviews on multiple other platforms attest. It is not the season for spider eggs. The local pet hospital can attest to our frequent towel donations, since we replace them so often. There are over 1,000 Airbnb's and other places to stay in Joshua Tree. If indeed you were a real guest, why did we never hear from you? We address guest concerns directly and right away, and not with denial. We work extremely hard to maintain Spin & Margie's to the highest standard, and take pride in it.

We spent a week at Spin and Margie's in Suite 4 at the end of January 2020. Bright sunshine, chilly at night, but very close to the park. Spin and Margie's is a fun and funkie place. Decorated in an esoteric desert style, each room is unique and the courtyard spaces are bright and welcoming. Suite 4 is made up of one big room combined for sleeping and for relaxing with a book, the TV, music or games. It has a full kitchen, well equipped, and a large bathroom with a large walk in shower and a separate bathtub. The bathroom opens onto a private courtyard, perfect for relaxing when the sun is high (remember, we were there in the winter) If you are looking at a nice, out of the way but convenient to the park, spot, this is the one for you. Stacey is a great hostess, one of the best vacation experiences ever.

I visited spin and margies with my two boys (9 and 11) and friends with kids as well. The grounds were ideal for kids to roam around and play in the pool/Baci ball/horse shoes. Heads up for small kids though, the pool may not be heated, you will want to call ahead and check. The rooms are extremely well equipped for families (kitchen, fridge, movies, music) clean and charming. It is 5 minutes from the town of Joshua tree and 30 minutes from the National park which is a dream for scampering across boulders, light climbing and hiking. We will absolutely come back and stay at spin and margies again!

We stayed in Suite 1 (Desert Rambler) for two nights in mid June 2019. This place is hard to find, but worth the effort to find it. It is a beautiful, quirky, eclectic place to stay. Desert weirdness at its best.

Our was a party of 2 & we stayed in cabin #5 (smallest cabin amongst the rest) which was perfect for us. Although this place is a tad difficult to find after dark, Google maps work great & there is a small sign on the main road indicating you need to turn into a dirt road. Few blocks ahead is the entrance to this place with TripAdvisor advertisement that you cant miss. You enter & park & cabin #5 is just near by. Location also hosts a gorgeous swimming pool, accommodation is quiet & every cabin has its own private garden with lounge chairs. TV, heater, robes & bathroom floor heater make your stay cozy. Coffee maker & fridge adds to the comfort. Place very unique & is a tad pricey but guess such small inns need severe maintenance. Also cafe & restaurants are about 5-7 mins away so stock up if you need anything. Overall we were pleased with the stay
