If you want to stay in death valley, would happily recommend this as a good choice. We stayed in older courtyard room, and whilst small it was comfortable with an adequate bathroom, a little dated but perfectly functional. The air conditioning was noisy and we switched off for part of night, but in death valley on older property its what we expected and im not sure much better is realistic when its working so hard. The location is perfect based for park visit. We visited the Mesquite dunes early evening for a walk – but be careful we found the heat BRUTAL at end of June. After dark the skies are great for some stargazing, but you need to go away from Stovepipe wells, so we went Mesquite dunes again and there were handful of others with same idea, in truth I found Bryce canyon, Grand Canyon and other parts of Utah more comfortable to star gaze. The amenities at the hotel were better than I expected - a full service bar with bar food (no evening restaurant low season) and a decent hot breakfast buffet. The gift shop opposite was a well stocked cross between gas station and tourist souvenir shop. I would recommend, and would encourage staying inside park boundaries – However if we came back we were not so sold on Stovepipe wells that we might not try furnance creek ranch instead

Death Valley is one of the most amazing places I have visited. It was such a treat to be able to stay right there! The hotel is simple, but has everything you need including a great saloon with awesome root beer! I would stay here again on another visit to Death Valley.

Josh was an absolute legend. When I was locked out of my car he got in touch with NPS through some sort of buddy of his and sorted it so they would get me back into my car. In the mean time, his colleague Matt very kindly offered me usage of the pool - which was a nice relief for a stranded traveller in the 117° sun! I didn't stay at the hotel, but I'm sure if I had I would've had the most wonderful experience - very impressed!

Place is just great, restaurant/ bar has great food, kids allowed in bar. Staff very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in ‘Roadrunner’ accommodation and was very comfortable for 2 parents and 2 teenage boys. The nearby (2.3 miles) sand dunes car park is a fantastic place to view the sunset and into the night for the Milky Way. Pretty much total black out so can see everything. We went here at 5am to see sunrise too, fantastic experience. Would stay again for sure 👌👌👌

OK stay

Our stay was fine for 1 night. Great location within the park. Our room definitely needed a good cleaning. The window trim & bathrooms needed a good cleaning as they were both very dusty. We didn't use the pool or restaurant but both seemed nice. A/C ran forever but wasn't too loud. Overall we were satisfied but not overly.
