Time Out says
This hilltop roadside refuge, founded in 1952, offers a charming but no-frills place to stay just minutes from the National Park. Each room comes with its own patio (and some with kitchenettes), AC and heat and cable. There's also a small pool and hottub, both of which overlook the Mojave wilderness. Enjoy complimentary coffee in the common room each morning, or peruse maps of the park or hop on the wifi in the library. Oh, and fun fact: U2 stayed here while woking on their The Joshua Tree album.
