2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed 2 nights. The first night we caught about 300 Box Elder bugs, and the second only about 30. Makes me question whether the room was checked the day of our arrival. Restaurant service was poor, although the food was good. We waited to be served, waited for the check for 30-40 minutes after asking for it. We were... More

Approaching the hotel I couldn't imagine that this was where we would be staying. The drive there is amazing with breathtaking scenery. It was so hot there (no surprise) but the welcome was just as warm. The bar staff were good fun and I did brave the pool which was quite a wlcome cool off. I went there for the... More

The best of this hotel is the location (in the heart of Death Valley), the swimming pool and the restaurant. It's a nice place and the atmosphere is very calm. Someting negative: WiFi doesn't work fine and noisy air conditioner in the room.

As mentioned by other, you really do not have much choice when staying in Death Valley. The rooms are ok, air conditioning worked. The bugs did not cause us much of a problem as there were just a few in our room and they really are not very menacing. The kids loved the pool late at night. The service in... More

The staff was poorly managed among other things. I was in a group on business and they managed to get 10/14 of our meals completely wrong. I asked for coffee twice and never received it. I also asked for vegetables with my meal and they brought me fries. Upon asking for my vegetables the server gave me a very dirty... More

Stayed there one night on a road trip around the West Coast. This was very much better than we expected with decent food and a good room, only criticism was a A/C unit that was way too loud. If you happen to stay there you MUST get out after dark and take a look at the clear night sky without... More

You won't have a lot of choice to spend a night in Death Valley, so yes it is the place where you will make your break. But be careful of the cockroach ! Because even if a note explains you that they are our friends, that they are nice, ... I hate being awake in the middle of the night... More

Dear guests, I apologize for the problems you had with insects in your room, we have been having problems with Box Elder Beetles here, but they are NOT cockroaches. Each of our rooms are inspected daily before check in to clean these bugs out, unfortunately they get back in through the air conditioning units. There are signs about them at... More

My husband and I stayed in Stovepipe Wells for 2 nights. The Village is a good base to visit the Death Valley - although if you visit in July as we did you might want to wake up really early (4am or so) to be able to visit the places around with a decent temperature. The Hotel was ok, a... More

Staff was very friendly, location is superb. Only downside was the restaurant - it's hard to find another place to have dinner in Death Valley, so you're stuck there. But still: hotel is above average. Fun by/in the pool, dunes within walking distance, and a great place to look at the stars at night.

We visited for one night in August and the room although basic was comfortable and clean . ( be aware that there are some harmless insects which can't be removed because of the national park). Given the 129 degree temperatures the air con was very efficient if a little noisy. The pool looked welcoming and the shops were selling varied... More
