After Patrick wrapped up his conference in Palm Springs, we headed to the high desert to spend a couple of nights at the Pioneertown Motel.
Long time readers may be familiar with previous visits to Pioneertown, a real town originally built as a live-in backlot of sorts made exclusively for westerns back in 1946. But beyond the facades, props, and puns, is a motel, originally built for the stars and crew who were filming on Pioneertown’s streets. Today, it’s a rustic desert retreat perfect for getting away from it all.
Recently renovated, the motel features 19 rooms, a 24 hour guest lounge known as “The Canteen,” an outdoor fireplace, and an amazing outdoor space for star gazing. Oh, and wifi!
As the motel was made for the stars and crew, it is located at the front of Mane Street, which is perfect for a morning stroll.
Now don’t go getting the Mane Street Hotel and the Pioneertown Motel confused, there is only one place to say, and that is the Pioneertown Motel. The Mane Street one is just a gussied up facade!
