My wife and I enjoy the restaurant. The service has always been great. Most of the vegies are grown in the garden on the property. There's often a band playing outside by the pool, an awesome experience. The rooms in the Inn are rustic and unique just like the old Oasis of Mara. If you want a big city experience go to the big city. If you want to enjoy an amazing rustic, eclectic and historic property try 29 Palm Inn. We go back regularly.

Restaurant Review - Horrible...don't eat here, you've been warned. Amateur in the kitchen amateur servers. For the price (for any price) the food was awful. The shrimp scampi was served room temperature...the shrimp was cold inside...forgot to thaw before cooking I guess. The rice was cold and hard. The salad was old and the dressing was from a bottle. They said they would remake the dinner for me. Came back 3 minutes later with the same exact dish, only burning hot from the microwave. Gross.

the coolest inn ever. very hippie-chic. lobe love love...they care about the earth...no plastic cups or tiny bottles of wasteful plastic shampoos...the shampoo etc are mounted to the shower wall in a pump and real glass cups. the face soap is clearly hand made. organic sheets. concrete floors. rag rugs. completely charming. fantastic staff works hard to make you happy. 5 star food! Ah-mazing! to die for...even their plastic ware with my to go ordee was eco-friendly. whoever runs this place has the key to my heart!

Went for sunday brunch, food and service was really good, my only complaint is that i had been charged 9 dollars to add shrimp to my salad. It was a skewer of 3 grilled shrimp. I will go back because the food and service is really good, but will probably order a sandwich instead.

Only went to the restaurant for dinner. (April, 2015) Wow. Excellent, fresh food in the middle of ho-hum food land. Every thing from bread to coffee to salad to entree (I got planked halibut, hubby got flat iron steak) to dessert was wonderful! Locals drive in from all over just for the food. Even next to the pool, while kids are jumping in the water, and guests are conversing, you can get the vibe (ambiance) of an upscale hogan, revered by the desert spirituality, admired by hippies of all ages, and draws in anyone with a still soul. You can appreciate the air, the warmth, and any kind of healing or nutrition you are seeking....yet, that feeling isn't contrived or manufactured. It's just happen-so. Just the place to unwind after a hard day of whatever suits your fancy. The food is worth a few dollars more. THAT good.

"Unique" would be a good start, in describing this place. Each bungalow at the Inn, is more charming than the next. The food is wonderful, and the vibe is the kind of "Mellow" that only the desert can offer.

I've stayed at the 29 Palms Inn a few times, and it's always been great. Normally when we go to Joshua Tree we rent a house, the more secluded the better. That's the high desert to me - quiet and wild and weird. But the 29 Palms Inn is a different kind of ride. You're still in the desert (east of Joshua Tree), but you can walk in your bathrobe to the restaurant/bar/pool area. So it's not isolated and it's not exceptionally private (but it is reasonably private), but then those isolated quiet places don't have swimming pools and bars. So there's that. The place is laid out in a kind of circle of bungalows in various sizes and states of primitive decay. Some of them are really old, so if you're into luxury, this ain't your spot. Try Two Bunch Palms for more of that (though that place isn't exactly five stars either...just a different vibe). 29 Palms Inn is down and dirty, just like the desert should be. I said "decay," and it occurs to me that some people could take that the wrong way. Mainly, I suspect, those who have never been to the desert. The desert is decay. Everything natural and man made is being worn away by the overwhelming desertness of desert itself. Decay and collapse of everything and everyone is inevitable. So everything out there has that patina of impermanence. That's what I meant by decay. Good, natural decay. So yeah, recommended by mjp. For what that's worth. If you're going to Joshua Tree or 29 Palms for a weekend or a short stay, you couldn't find a better spot.

Get ready, the #PerseidMeteorShower  is set to peak tonight! Visit our blog for some fun facts and a beautiful timelapse video that captured the show a few year ago right here in Joshua Tree National Park!

#perseid   #meteorshower   #desertnightsky   #twentyninepalmscalifornia  
It's that time of year again when our night sky comes to life! The Perseids are known to be one of the most active and stunning meteor showers of the year, and draw people out to our desert region every summer. Combine our already dark desert night skies with the benefit of a new moon this year ...

Beautiful mandala paintings by Valerie Davis also on display now through to September 27th at the Inn! 

For the past 20 years Valerie has been working within the format of the Mandala. She starts with the geometry, usually a circle, and builds a design with abstracted figurative elements.  

Valerie creates unique textures using molding paste and hot glue and other materials. She builds up layers of glue, often layering the glue over a base layer of iridescent pigments. The final layer is translucent acrylic paint. These textures become an important visual element in the finished paintings. Lately Valerie has been using photos of plants, rocks or other natural forms collages and covered in textured. Color treatments are evocative of light shining through stained glass.

Stunning collection of photographs by Patricia Knight now on display through to September 27th! 

"My inspiration comes from nature, as it is my muse. It reminds me to slow down. Standing amongst the open quietness of the desert, I able to listen to my inner voice that all too often becomes muted when life pulls me in so many directions. With each photograph, the natural elements of color, shape, and motion begin to stir deeper feelings. Time stops, and in that moment I am not only a mother, wife, teacher, and photographer — I am free. With my camera in hand, there are no limits and I become lost in its physical meditation. The desert is freedom; peaceful, spiritual and healing all at the same time." -- Patricia Knight

In addition to coming to the Inn to see her work be sure to visit Patricia's website at www.patriciaknightphotography.com to check out her full portfolio!

With the recent rain it's important to drive with caution and keep an eye out for the beloved desert tortoise who might be out on the roads looking for a drink. The great staff at Joshua Tree National Park have put together an excellent video to help us understand what to do should we encounter a tortoise, check it out!

Stroll the grounds to learn about the palm oasis and desert plants and animals. The history of the Serrano and Chemehuevi Indians who lived here, the pond and garden are all part of the story.
