Mojave Sands Motel in Joshua Tree
When my friends invited me to Joshua Tree, they knew the way to sell me on the trip was to tell me about where they were staying. Mojave Sands is this beautifully simple and well-designed motel that truly captures the essence of the desert. Originally built in 1952, new owner Blake purchased the property in 2002. He kept the bones but gutted the building and totally renovated it. All the new doors, windows, gates, and most of the furniture was designed and built on-site. The result is a peaceful oasis that is inspired by its surroundings but also has a hip factor with a cool mix of organic materials, industrial bones & modern accessories. Each room has a library of books and records and even a record player for your listening pleasure. Blake, you’re speaking my language…
