.............there's the General Store and the Hotel/Restaurant/Bar. And, I almost forgot, the campsite that was completely empty in mid-July. Not much else to see or do. However, don't miss the General Store. You will find a fantastic selection of a wide variety of things (a truly amazing selection, in fact, when one considers the size of the store) when you...

In july: super hot. Only stopped there at the general store which is also a gift shop. It's a nice little town but not much to see.

Death Valley itself, in July was unimpressive. I really don't think it would impress me any time of year. Lots of sage! The dunes near Stovepipe Wells were cool though (not cool like cold though because it was 115 degrees) and the staff at the general store were helpful and nice. I prefer the mountains but just wanted to say... More

I wouldn't classify this as an attraction, this is a stop for supplies. You can get gas, drinks, food & some medical supplies. There is a hotel as well. They have gift shop, prices are what you'd expect at the visitor center.

We stopped here for a little refuge in the village shop, which had a very strong air conditioner at the door, very appreciated! Got some photos outside the shop, but I could feel myself burning.

Good stopping point to let the car rest before hitting the rest of the valley. We traversed Death Valley West to East and stopped here for a Coffee and a look around. Great experience to drive through Death Valley.

We stayed two nights here...two rooms, 4 adults! We had patio rooms which were small, older but clean! Check in was smooth and attendant very friendly! It was extremely hot while we were there (reaching 114') so I must say that the a/c was working wonderfully and the pool was a haven after exploring the park during the day! Property... More
