There was a heat storm through the region and the temperature topped 123 degrees (50.5 Celsius) while we were there which was scary hot but amazing. We were upgraded to a superior room with dune views and it was huge, the beds were comfy and the air conditioning worked - it was a short (five mins) walk to the reception/bar/pool... More

We came to Death Valley from Yosemite, 10,000 mtrs elevation to sea level. Death Valley is what it says on the tin but interesting none the less. We arrived at the hotel at about 2:30 to be told no rooms until 4 which was a bummer as once you've looked at the Village Store you've seen it all so we... More

Stovepipe Wells is a wonderful location to enjoy a true desert experience. We stayed in a Patio Room which was comfortable but on the small side and upon reflection we wished we paid a bit extra for a Standard Room. The AC was rather noisy but as we were staying here in April it didn’t matter because we didn’t need... More

An extremely friendly and helpful response was what I got when I rang to book a room. And the same response was received when we checked in. We had a large well appointed modern room. The motel is across from a gas station and store and next to a bar and restaurant. And they are all good. The view from... More

We had originally booked a room at Panamint Springs, but after we checked in found out that there wasn't any power (it was about 115 degrees there), so we decided to check back out and take a chance on finding a room at Stovepipe Wells. What a lucky break that was! Fortunately there were rooms available, and we were totally... More

The room was basic and functional, maybe a little worn around the edges. Everything worked although the air conditioner had seen better days and was about to give up after a very difficult life. There were no phones as I recall and the wireless worked, sort of, but that is not why you spend a night in Death Valley. The... More

This and Furnace Creek are your only choices in Death Valley proper. The Resort in Furnace isn't open in the summer and the Ranch costs more than Stovepipe Wells. So the bar, Restaurant, pool and store are all very nice. The rooms are what I've come to expect in National Parks, which is overpriced and about Motel 6 quality (unless... More

This is your only choice in Death Valley. It is an old facility, somewhat threadbare, but functional. We were in a unit facing west and got some good sunset photos. It is on the way out of the park to the northwest. The room appeared clean and the beds were okay. For $196 a night it was no bargain.

I am sorry that you feel the way you do. We recently updated all of our baths with new tile and granite counters, and have invested in new carpeting throughout the property. We like to remind our guests that we are in the middle of the desert, and that we operate as a concessionaire of the NPS. The National Park... More

An interesting place to stay close to the Mesquite sand dunes. A friendly saloon & a good evening meal. Unfortunately the room was marred by the light fitting full of bugs & a badly cracked sink. Of course the wifi is poor but what do you expect in the desert!

Made reservations over the phone for a deluxe 2 bed queen room, which was fast & smooth. Once reaching the property checkin was fast & informative, very helpful clerk with great hospitality. The room itself was what you would expect in a national park, basic. Nice beds, TV had all channels if you need them, bathroom area was updated, with... More
