    Really enjoyed our stay. Loved the uniqueness!

    A true Oasis
    I was really impressed. Retro style perfectly charming & not overdone. I appreciated the unique details such as the fun colorful painted rocks area, classy tea set up for breakfast, and the unforgettable "pillow menu"!! I would love to stay there again. My only suggestion is better coffee. (Could have just been a weak batch?) I still give 5 stars across the board.

    Thoughtful and charming hotel
    Great hotel with lots of thoughtful touches like different height pillows and free snacks and water. As a solo traveller I enjoy having the option of a restaurant onsite. They do offer a complimentary breakfast which was a nice touch though I would have liked more variety.

    The Retro Gem of the Desert
    The Monkey Tree Hotel is like stepping back in time. A true Mid Century time warp done right. The pool and grounds, the room decor, all were period correct. The staff and amenities were great. My wife and I were absolutely elated to stay here and will return. The Monkey Tree hotel is one of the coolest places we have ever stayed. My wife even wrote a Jingle for the hotel. "Come stay with me at the monkey tree, this hotel is oh so swell"

    Beautiful hotel, with spectacular mountains as a backdrop. Great pool. Great outdoor spa with jacuzzi, proper Finnish sauna and cold plunge pool. Locations was good for visiting Joshua Tree NP and downtown. Only wish we could have stayed longer
