Pioneertown Motel

The Property

Pioneertown Motel lives in the High Desert of California — an otherworldly land in the Morongo Basin that calls to outsiders, dreamers, and spiritual wanderers.


The town started as a live-in Old West motion-picture set, built in the 1940s. The set was designed to provide a place for the actors to live while using their homes in the movie. A number of Westerns and early television shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including The Cisco Kid and Edgar Buchanan's Judge Roy Bean. The buildings in the old movie set are now home to a variety of artist studios, vintage shops, a book store, and a saddle maker. Make sure to stop at the Pioneertown Museum (first building on the right). Both the Red Dog Saloon and Pappy and Harriet's are a stone's throw away.

Some History

Built originally as a waypost for movie stars of old Westerns, Pioneertown Motel has stood since 1946 as a place for wearied travelers and sun-drunk revelers to seek solace and inspiration. Gene Autry played poker until sunrise in Room #9.
