The Wonder Inn Project - Overview, Resources & Impact
The Wonder Inn is proposed as a hotel resort project on 25 acres of a 134.6 acres site located at 78201 Amboy Road, 29 Palms, CA 92277, in the unincorporated area of San Bernardino County known as Wonder Valley.
The complex includes 42,120 square feet (sf) of 106 pre- manufactured hotel rooms and an additional four (4) pre-manufactured buildings for administration, storage, event prefunction and restrooms, pool restrooms and spa locker rooms and restrooms. In addition there will be new permanent shade structures for the fitness/spa area, treatment rooms and event space.
The hotel grounds will also include a swimming pool, hot tubs, outdoor showers, desert type landscaping and parking. Laundry will be provided by an off site vendor. The existing 4407 square foot (sf) single story commercial building on site will be remodeled to serve as the main hotel lobby, restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining, and commercial kitchen.
Utilities include water supplied from an existing well onsite, a new septic leech field system for waste water, propane and electricity. The Project will employ approximately twenty full time employees and part time employees as needed. The hotel will be open 24/7 year round.
The Project site is partially designated Commercial Service (CS) and Rural Living (RL-5). The Project CUP application includes a rezoning request for 19 acres of RL-5 to CS zoning to complete the 25 acres for the Project.
