I travel to Joshua Tree once a week and needed a clean comfortable place to stay. The Safari Motor Inn, situated right on Highway 62, was convenient. Speaking with owner Ravi, I made arrangements to stay each week and have been doing so for over a year. I get a simple clean room with all the amenities and enjoy the evening LED show that Ravi has built in the courtyard. I have also watched as he carefully works to get the entire space back to pristine condition during a time of difficulty for any business. He is thoughtful and caring for each person staying and tries to meet all our needs. I look forward to many evenings of peace, quiet, and a clean at-home sense of being in his motor inn.

Our evening here was truly memorable. The room itself is nothing special. A very odd layout, clean, comfortable, but felt outdated. However, the back courtyard was so amazing. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and evening in the park, it was nice being so close. When we came back to the motel I opened our back door and gasped. The light display was magical. So much time and care put in by the owner. We spent a lovely evening enjoying the stars and the lights.

This is an older building, but don't judge the book by the cover. The room was clean and comfortable and the AC worked great. There is a large patio/garden area behind the rooms that you are welcome to use. My wife and I got a pizza and sat outside in the evening air with a glass of wine....magical with the light display the owner has set up. The owner is a kind, sweet man. Could not recommend this place more highly. Recommend you hike the Nature Trail in Joshua Tree National Park.

I booked this place ahead of time for one night, April 24 through 25. They have 7 days cancellation policy. They canceled on me 4 days (!!) before the trip, when there were no more hotels available in the area. Apparently, because they found customers that will pay more for the room. Do not EVER book anything with this place!!

Our family of three thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Safari Motel! Must call to get a rare room with two beds. The location is excellent. Since it’s on the main road in town, we brought a small white noise machine to ensure a quiet night. The room was clean, the beds comfortable. Walkable to shops, restaurants, and the in-town Joshua Tree NP visitors center.
