There are no hotels or lodges in Joshua Tree National Park, but the small towns near the park offer a wide range of lodging options.
Some of the best hotels and B&Bs are found in the town of Joshua Tree, which is my favorite place to stay near the park. Despite its small size, Joshua Tree has a thriving creative community, and there are a number of great restaurants and art galleries.
The adjacent towns of Twentynine Palms and Yucca Valley are dominated by strip malls and fast food joints, but there are a handful of good lodging options.
