We stopped here on the way to Death Valley. Our “hotel room” was a mobile home and while the staff couldn’t be nicer, there weren’t enough towels, trash wasn’t emptied from the last guest and everything was quite grubby. Sheets were clean and the couch...More

We are so sorry about the grubbiness. We will definitely address the cleanliness and hope you give us another chance.

As they had booked us into a tiny teepee for 4 people I had no choice but to upgrade to a delux lodge. There was not the slightest thing about the lodge that was delux. There wasn’t even a cup to make a hot drink....More

Oasis in the High Desert! Gateway to Death Valley minutes to Mt. Whitney. Updated clean motel rooms king, queen, suites, family rooms and tipis (tent) all with clean fresh duvet/comforters. Our guest rooms More also come with flat screen TVs w/ direct and dish network, HBO, free Wifi. Kitchens/kitchenette, cool off in our well water swimming pool. Our restaurant Olancha Cafe' serves healthful and natural cuisine w/ cage free eggs, organic produce, grass fed buffalo, carne asada vegetarian options and a smoothie bar serving our famous date shakes. Pets are welcome. The park also has a General Store. Laundromat, BBQ. Picnic area and horses. Bring some carrots for the Wild Burro Rescue located a couple of miles behind the park. It's a great opportunity for the students to get their community service hours and help the burros at the same time. Stay a while and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada's to the West and the Whites to the east. Sunrises and sunsets are to live for, in the evening you can touch the stars :) Less
