My friend and I stayed only one night, but found the room and owners exceptional in hospitality and value. Ed and Larry recommended restaurants (we ate outside at Matchbox--cool night but with overhead heaters and the fire pit it was comfortable) and the drink and food were delicious. The warm pool at 10pm with 50 degree weather felt wonderful, and the bed was very comfortable. Kitchenette accomodations were first rate. We missed the celebrity home tour bus but Ed had a map of the many stars' residences and we GPS'd ones we wanted to see and found them with no problem. Larry has a favorite route to Las Vegas that bypasses most of the freeways that we took and it was wonderful. We drove through desert, Joshua trees, the historical train station of Kelso, and other lovely scenery. I would recommend taking 3-4 hours during daylight hours for this drive, giving lots of time to stop, sightsee, and photograph the views. Fill up with gas in Twenty-nine Palms, CA as facilities after that are scarce til Las Vegas.
