          This is not a fancy place, but the beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and it was located close Joshua Tree National Park. We were very satisfied with this reasonable priced motel.The town is small but interesting.

          Nothing bad to say, you get what you pay for. Nothing modern here, keys for doors that don't automatically lock. Still, an overall positive experience, especially when not expecting much. Would stay again.

          How far is this hotel from Death Valley park? Do any tours or excursions depart for Death Valley from here or nearby?

          As Elizabeth said, it is a bit of a drive to Death Valley. However, the area is beautiful. I am not sure if any tours depart from here.
