Mojave Sands Motel


The Mojave Sands Motel located in Joshua Tree, California on 29 Palms Hwy is a 5 room roadside desert motel which was originally built in the 1950's.

It has been called "an Eco-chic Moroccan desert refuge celebrating modern-minimalism". Formerly named The Oleander, the motel was originally built in 1952.

The motel is truly a unique and special place to stay. The doors, windows, gates, and much of the furniture were all designed and built on site.

Each room has a private patio with benches and a fountain, a fridge/freezer, coffee maker and grinder, and a vinyl record player with an assortment of records for your listening pleasure. The common grounds are enclosed by solid sheets of rusted metal and salvaged wood. As you enter a large reflecting pool is the centerpiece.
