I've stayed at Harmony numerous times during desert stays for usually between 3-7 days, and it is always exactly what I need.

The Harmony Motel in Twentynine Palms was very very nice and quiet and very clean. The owner Ash was there and very helpful making sure I was very comfortable with extra towels and explaining the rules of her nice quiet establishment and where the common area is and ice machine. The place is very relaxing with the pool.

We are traveling as a family of four with two small boys aged 7 and 6. We booked the Harmony motel as a stopping point before going to the Joshua Tree.
