This was our first trip to Joshua Tree and we absolutely fell in love with the area, especially with Spin and Margie's. We stayed in suite #4, which looks exactly as it does in the website photos. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable. The property is also very relaxing and I wish we had more time to just...

We stayed in Suite #2 and it was wonderful for my husband and I, plus our 7 month old son to stay in. The side room was a great area to place our son's portable crib and play things. Also, the kitchen was absolutely perfect for us. We have strict dietary restrictions, so we mostly have to cook our meals...

This was also a little getaway to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing! This was our first trip to Joshua Tree and we booked a suite at Spin and Margie's based on a close friend's referral and what a treat! Spin and Margie's is so cute and charming, the grounds were gorgeous and our suite was spotless and cozy....

My daughter, a student in Claremont, and I stayed here for two nights to hike and explore Joshua Tree. We really enjoyed and would highly recommend. It was easy to communicate with Spin and Margie's. The accommodations were very spacious and very clean with a lot of nice touches. There was a wonderful selection of CDs and DVDs, books and...

The room was #2, with a good size bedroom with TV and videos, and a small room with a single bed and a table and 2 chairs. The kitchen is well supplied with everything one would need to cook a meal. Toaster, microwave, 2 burner cooktop, under the counter refrigerator. The dishes, bowls and utensils were all new and nice.

Spin & Margie's is a great b&b in a great area! We had contact with Mindy before our stay and she was very helpful and informative. I would describe the b&b as kitschy chic in a very endearing way. Although it is a b&b, it is run a bit more like a hotel in the sense that there is not...

I was planning a weeks vacation to Joshua Tree to take photos and do watercolors. An old friend from LA recommended Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway. Suite #3 was perfect for me because it had a very pleasant main room with charming Southwest decor and great light. The suite was very clean and had a kitchen with the appropriate tools,...

Just got back from our second stay at Spin and Margie's. The place is truly special. Kitschy, fun, comfortable. It is our most favorite getaway...Joshua Tree is a magical place in and of itself, but combine it with a stay at Spin and Margie's and it's pretty close to perfection. The grounds are awesome...so many places to sit and relax,...

Our stay in Suite 1 was fabulous - perfect spot to access multiple entry points into the park for beautiful hikes and vistas. The room was comfortable, warm, and beautifully furnished, and the kitchen was so well stocked. Highly recommend!

We had a terrific experience. Margie was there when we needed her and not at all intrusive. Arrival was easy, the directions were excellent, and the location was perfect for us. The park was close by. The space was perfect for us - sleeping, reading on some comfy chairs, kitchen with eat-in table, and bath with shower & tub. Definately...
