Family Easter

We were greeted by 4 smiling, friendly, helpful ladies! They gave us a recommendation for a great dinner place and got us settled in. We would have appreciated some information in our room about the TV and 29 Palms but overall we had a great stay.

Place called Las Palmas. Good meal and atmosphere. Dine indoors or outside by the pool and gaze at the stars.

Perfect for Joshua Tree Nat'l Park visitors

Immaculate, well appointed, reasonably priced and includes a very good breakfast, including hot, made-to-order items. I stayed on a Saturday night and there was no noise at all. Just a short distance to the Joshua Tree Nat'l Park entrance. It was perfect for my purposes.

Great High Desert Stay

The room was very clean with easy access. Parking was just outside the room. The breakfast was top drawer. Not a bad moment the entire 2 1/2 days there. Very friendly staff throughout

Good location for the national park

It has everything that we've come to expect from Best Western. The price for the season seem a little pricey, but the location couldn't be closer to the national park entrance. The room is decent size but the sink is outside of the bathroom, which is a bit inconvenient. The hot breakfast was great, and the room has microwave and small refrigerator. And the wi-fi was free of charge.

Friendly Staff

Stayed one night, visiting 29 palms. It's a typical Best Western you'll find. Nothing fancy but nothing so bad either. I forgot her name but the front desk staff was super friendly and made me feel really welcome after a long drive out there.

STAY ELSEWHERE!! INACCURATE RESERVATIONS, SAD SERVICE and NOT CLEAN!

A friend and I booked 2 rooms for 4 nights to attend BhaktiFest at the organizers' recommendation and at their group rate for the duration of the festival. Hotel was close enough (~15mins. driving) to the retreat ctr, but on the first night I had to change rooms b/c I was allergic to something (mold/mildew?) in the mattress and/or carpet. The next day they forgot to service my room at all. Worse, they checked out my friend a full day early, and were completely unapologetic when we arrived from the festival at midnight on our last evening and claimed they had no room to accommodate her. They simply handed her things back to her and offered no alternatives. We had to call Corporate Customer Service and file a complaint - by 2am nothing was resolved and she had to stay in my single room for the night. When I asked for a credit for the night on checkout, they claimed the manager wasn't in and the person on duty had no authority to credit me. It's been 36hrs. and despite calling and leaving messages for the manager with the front desk, I've yet to receive any kind of response. Completely unacceptable customer service - stay anywhere but here!! **They've since responded to deny any errors with the reservations on their part - in fact they inaccurately booked my friend's room not just once but TWICE - and to confirm that they won't be offering me a credit for one night since technically she could have walked to Palm Springs to stay at another Best Western (at 2am and w/o a U.S. driver's license). COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS and a reflection on the intelligence of the mngt at this property. Well Jim, just keep your $85 and let's see how much damage an honest review will do... Read similar complaints here and on other travel sites - this hotel does not deserve your business!

Worked well for what I needed

Everything went fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. A little expensive for the local but not a problem.
