While this motel isn't technically in Joshua Tree, that's the final destination for most of its guests—that is, those who aren't staying put in Pioneertown for a show at Pappy & Harriet's. The former biker bar-turned-super cool desert music venue is a big draw for guests here, as is the National Park about a forty-minute drive away. The rooms here (choose from king, queen or double double accommodations) are sparse and rustic, but charming and undeniably hip—and you're essentially staying in an old Western ghost town when you stay here (literally, Pioneertown was built as a backdrop for Westerns back in the '40s), which is a kitsch factor that can't be beat.
