My 5 star rating is based on expectations, but understand this is not a 5-star hotel. However the location is spectacular and the room delivered on our expectations. Easy to pull up right outside our room. wifi is a bit spotty, but we sat outside the registration office and were able to stream our netflix. The hotel was in an area that our t-mobile phones picked up reception. The rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Small refrigerator in the room and ice machine on the premises. It is just great to walk out of your room and walk into the desert to see a sunset and sunrise. Going after Labor Day less families and the campground across the street was closed so we felt like we just part of a small group of travelers all enjoying the desert quiet. Pool was nice, it needs refinishing, but the water was clean and cool. We ate at the Bar and people were so friendly. The general store is across the street and has many of your basic needs. Just a lovely place to get away and enjoy Death Valley

An immersive Death Valley experience!

We have stayed, shopped and eaten at Stovepipe Wells Village quite a few times in the past, and it is always is a thrill. You truly experience Death Valley when you see the beautiful landscape every time you walk outside your door. The theming is immersive with the mining themed hotel exterior and the mining equipment placed throughout. September set record highs (125F on one day during our visit), yet the A/C kept the room comfortable. To be able to conveniently park in front of the room makes unloading, going in and out, and unloading so easy. The staff was very friendly, and the room rates were very reasonable considering this is the middle of a National Park - the driest, hottest place in the US! The General Store across the street made shopping for gifts and supplies very convenient and enjoyable. We can't wait to return!

Booked this hotel based on its location. We were driving from Las Vegas to Yosemite straight through Death Valley. There really is only a handful of options. This fit the bill. The room was fine, totally outdated and the bed was acceptable with minimal pillows. The pool area looked like a college party, with kids playing beer pong, blasting music and stacking solo cups. I quickly determined this was not what we were looking for after driving hours and looking for a quiet swim before bed. If your looking for a place to sleep and leave on your way through Death Valley, this is a good option. A standard room with 2 double beds was $200. Which is billed at the time of booking. There was a restaurant but we didn’t stop there after reading so many bad reviews about the restaurant instead we stopped at the General Store for some snacks and headed to the Mesquite Sand Dunes 5 minutes away then the Mosaic Canyon Trail about 20 minutes away.

Fantastic location but rooms needs updating.

Great location bang in the middle of the DV. The rooms were outdated but comfortable enough. Wifi is very POOR - they need to sort this out. Staff did not seems bothered when I raised this! Friendly staff in the restaurant.

We would have awarded an even higher rating had it not been for two badly stained bedsheets which we brought to the attention of the front desk. Otherwise, taking account of the unique location and the heat (48 degrees Celsius, 118 Fahrenheit), our one night stay was comfortable. The bedroom was large, cooled well by the aircon, had reasonable free wifi, a fridge and a desert view. Recycling was evident, a sadly unusual facility in our 16 hotel road trip. We ate dinner in the restaurant and although the menu was limited, the food was good and the service obliging. A trip to the nearby dunes, 5 minutes away, at 1am to see the marvel of the Milky Way is highly recommended.
