The best hotel manager ever
We have only been driving through Death Valley when we unfortunately hit a rock with our rental car and the car broke down. We managed to get to the Stovepipe Wells Village hotel where we were first helped by a lovely lady in the store. After that Brandon, the hotel manager, took care of us and spent several hours helping us with getting a replacement car. Brandon not only spent hours on the phone with our rental car agency, he also gave us a room to rest during the process. I have never met someone so helpful and accommodating. We were not hotel guests and he had no obligation towards us, yet he went above and beyond.
Thank you, Brandon, we are so grateful! If you ever find yourself in Slovakia or Denmark, we would be happy to host you :)
And to the hotel - the rooms were beautiful and well appointed, the hotel had a nice pool and lovely surroudings. The only downside for us was extremely low a/c in the restaurant, we were freezing!

The Standard Queen room we had really was very dated. For the money they charge ($200) for a night you really do expect a lot more. There was just one bedside cabinet so had to improvise using the ironing board. Then there was the noise, whether it being the AC unit sounding like a plane taking off, the whirring fridge, the whistling shower or the humming toilet extract there was no getting away from it. Also, the night we stayed the Saloon bar was shut so had no sanctuary from the room.
The only saving grace from the lack of sleep due to the noise was that it meant we spent more time star gazing at the Mesquite sand dunes and were up early enough to watch the sunrise.
The location is great for exploring Death Valley, but in hindsight we should have stayed just outside the park where there are more accommodation options at much more reasonable prices.

Great place to stay in Death Valley.
Stovepipe Wells is in the middle of Death Valley. It has a very western theme. Checkin is easy. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. The restaurant/ bar has excellent food and the breakfast buffet was great, especially the bacon - it was marvelous. Gas is better priced than at Furnace Creek. The store had a wide assortment of food and Death Valley souvenirs. Highly recommend Stovepipe Wells.

Busy little place
It was clean, the air con was noisy, very noisy, food was so so, the bar was nice, only had 1 night as a stop over, the village store is well stocked, but Death Valley is stunning ❤️ just don’t try to walk in the heat.

On our recent trip to Death Valley we enjoyed staying at Stovepipe Wells. Clean comfortable rooms. We ate dinner and breakfast at the Toll Road Restaurant. They had a nice fire pit outside with benches and chairs for relaxing in the evening. The pool was very nice but in March a little too cold to swim in. We did have a lovely view of the Sand Dunes
