Located in Pioneertown, California region, Pioneertown Motel is situated 34 km from Integratron. Featuring a garden, the 3-star motel has air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi, each with a private bathroom. Private parking can be arranged at an extra charge. I loved it here, from the decor to the town itself and everything about the area - it was one of my favorite rooms I’ve ever stayed in - the details in the design of each piece, the fact that our room had a small bookshelf (complete with several novels), the aesthetics of the room itself (modern additions and features added to the classic western vibe).. I just lived it here. The staff were all very friendly, the Red Dog is an awesome saloon as well to hang out in.

Toiyabe Motel

Walker

Offering free Wi-Fi, this motel is 15 minutes’ drive from Topaz Lake. All rooms include a cable TV with satellite channels. Free parking for buses, trucks and boats is provided.

All rooms include a work desk, a microwave, a refrigerator, a water cooler, and a coffee machine at Toiyabe Motel Walker. An en suite bathroom is also featured. Outside it was cold so it was very pleasant to get into a warm wooden nicely organized room. The towels were soft and with no stains, all the furniture and taps looked well made, and outlets were tight, so charges didn't fall out. We were warmly met, the hotel manager assisted us in finding a place to eat tasty food. There also was a possibility to eat outside in the yard which we happily used in the morning.
