I have been visiting Joshua tree, for a while over the years. I always book at the harmony motel. I love this spot, as it is exceptionally clean, unique in its services, decor, the motel adds to the character of the desert. Love the fencing around the property. Service is great, staff is very helpful. Rooms are huge, comfortable great...

We spent a night there in early May although my friend was initially leery. As soon as you see it, you know it's not your parents' Holiday Inn. We arrived later in the evening and the hotel has a bit of David Lynch charm to it - being somewhat old and creaky what seems to be in the middle of...

I have been staying at the Harmony hotel for many years for both vacation and business. The Harmony hotel is a charming boutique hotel in the Joshua Tree/Twentynine palms area. It is a refreshing change form the normal chain hotels. If you are looking for something with character and will turn your travel into a vacation and an experience then...

I spent the night here with my son and we both loved this quirky place. It's at the edge of town so in a quiet spot despite being close to a fast busy road that goes through town. The pool sits behind a tin and wood fence that can be seen all over the place, not modern but very suited...

My friend and I stayed a couple of nights in mid August and were really overwhelmed by the place. We really weren't expecting much, and didn't really need much in the way of amenities, but found the Harmony was just the right place and exactly what we needed. Ash and her staff were very friendly and attentive when we needed...

Oh my. Where do I begin? We arrived here after the Twentyninepalms Hotel was fully booked. And boy, did that look lovely. We had dinner there, and I really wished they'd had a room spare. Instead, we ended up at the Harmony Motel, riding on the back of U2, who stayed there many a moon ago. The lady who dealt...

Dear traveler, Firstly no one at our front desk can recall asking you to go to the Motel6 unless you requested the cheapest motel in the area from them. Firstly it seems from your review that you went to the inn to stay , hence thy were full and than you can to Harmony, but your writings indicate that you...

There is no such thing as coincidence. Just spent 2 nights at the Harmony Motel and can't speak highly enough about it. Looked for a place on TripAdvisor, and it's high rating, U2 history and just the "feel" of it, told me this was it!!!! Not one for hotel chains, don't need expensive and chic. I like the sense of...

This is the second time my son and I have stayed at the Harmony Motel and it is absolutely the perfect place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Harmony Motel is less than two miles away from the headquarters of the historical Joshua Tree National Park and is just one mile away from the trailhead entrance of the landmark 49 Palms Oasis, one of the five oases of the National Park. At Harmony, guests will find themselves just minutes away from rockclimbing and hiking excursions in and around Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms. The motel is less than one mile away from the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps (USMC) military base and is less than two miles away from Sky's The Limit, the local nature observatory. The motel offers competitive and affordable rates for a home away from home stay in Twentynine Palms. The motel has eight units. Five units have full kitchenettes, and one unit is a cabin -- a great option for guests looking for more of an AirBnB vacation rental accomodation with privacy. The rooms are simple, warmly decorated, and large with high ceilings. Each room comes fully furnished and equipped with heating and cooling units. Motel guests have access to a large refreshing swimming pool with an adjacent hot tub/jacuzzi that allows beautiful views for stargazing under the dark desert skies. The Harmony Motel has a library that provides free Internet service, books, and magazines. Adjacent to the library is a common area in which guests are treated to complimentary coffee each morning. Guests may also access this area to prepare your own light meals as utensils and appliances are provided for your use. ... more   less
