Our experience was unexpectedly shocking from the moment we walked in. We were greeted with the receptionist saying, "We have a few issues." Walked in to an awful-smelling hallway (imagine an overpowering mold-ridden smell) and were shown the first issue: a room with the door knob and lock smashed out of the door. We were then shown the second issue: our second room had no electricity. Apparently a big wedding a few nights before had blown out the electricity in all of the right-side rooms of this "hotel." We slept shivering by candlelight with a space heater powered by a long extension cord leading from the room to an outside generator....in freezing mid-December!! Our experience included dirty sheets, crumbling walls, and no discount for the terrible inconveniences. In the morning, the first room only had scathing hot water because the December winter air had frozen the cold water pipes on the roof of this "hotel." The only positives of this place are its interesting history/story and surrounding scenery. We later found Stovepipe Wells Village Inn and wished we would've known earlier to stay there instead. This place cannot be considered a hotel or even a motel. We felt like we were basically camping.
