Very basic but perfectly adequate. Our room overlooked the dunes and was away from the highway which is what we'd requested. Due to jet lag, we were awake early so it was great to get up and watch the sunrise over the mountains from right outside our room door.

Great location for exploring Death Valley

The place feels literally in the middle of nowhere, which is just what you want when you're staying in Death Valley. It's pretty low key with simple but comfortable rooms. You need to eat in the restaurant as there's nowhere else around but the service and food is good and it's reasonably priced given its location. You can drive to all the key viewing points and trails from the hotel. Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, is around 45 mins drive. Just behind the hotel is Mosaic Canyon walk which is walkable in a couple of hours and 5 min away are Mesquite sand dunes which are fantastic for sunset. There's no 4G and wifi is terrible - you literally need to stand in reception (it's small, there's nowhere to sit) to get any signal. So, do all your planning and hotel booking for the next part of your journey in advance so that you can just enjoy being in this incredible part of the world.

We stayed for a few nights here, the rooms are basic with good air conditioning. However the surroundings are beautiful. Breakfast and dinner food wise was very good and the lady in the morning serving was a blast. I will absolutely stay here again, perfect location, good food, general store across the road and very friendly staff.

An okay hotel for exploring Death valley

Myself and my husband exploring some of what the west of USA has to offer and our travels took us from LA to Death Valley and boy what a contrast that was! The hotel didn’t have the most friendly of check ins I can’t lie but it was only 2 minutes of my life. We got to our room and it was roasting! (I’m guessing why death valley is called what it’s called) where we immediately tried to work the what I can only assume was the aircon unit. We’re from the UK so this kind of desert heat was a huge shock to us. The room was fine, it had tea and coffee, there was a light covering of dust/fine sand however there was a sand storm while we were there and I honestly think no amount of wiping over could have prevented that. Anyway, the air con unit really didn’t make a difference so we ended up soaking towels in cold water and sleeping with them on us! Us Brits can’t handle the heat clearly. We did take a look at the pool area which was ok, although there were only a small handful of sunbeds which were all being used. We went to the restaurant on the complex which was where we ordered the CowBoy burger and it was honestly the best burger of the whole 3 weeks we had in America (and that was a lot of burgers) the service her was super quick and friendly so would recommend a visit there. breakfast was still on the complex but in another location and it wasn’t great, it was cold, limited choice and it looked like they’d forgotten but put half the stuff out but your choices for breakfast are very limited. Other than that, the room did the job, albeit hot, but really idea for exploring bad water basin, natural bridge trail, artists pallet and Zabrinski Point.

Basic accommodation and horrible food

Check in was rough. Fortunately we were able to use the pool while we waited a couple of hours to check into our room. The room itself was fine. The food was terrible. Under cooked hamburger and the next day an inedible pasta dish. I love garlic but the dish was so heavily laden with garlic and salt that we couldn't eat it. You really have few choices here. Staff were indifferent. Expect to be disappointed if you stay here.
