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. There
are also three outdoor fireplaces for night time enjoyment.
The Joshua Tree National Park entrance is just a few miles from the motel.
