We arrived after a long day seeing the sights in Death Valley and had a friendly greeting at reception. We had a dune view room which was quite large and sparse, drinks facilities, fridge, tv, separate shower/sink area.
When we arrived the weather took a turn for the worse as winds whipped the area into a sandstorm. The restaurant was good, welcoming staff and a decent selection. The gift shop was handy with some reasonably priced items for gifts, fuel wasn't extortionate (unlike nearby Furnace Creek).
Overall it was a great stay for one night, the sandstorm threatened to take the power out but it died down in the end. The AC units are really noisy, but turn it down a little and its fine. Phone signal vanishes completely and the wi-fi only works if you hold your phone high up by the window :) but you've got Death Valley to look at so focus on that.
