Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

After being welcomed very friendly at the reception, the room was just ok and the aircon was so loud and appeared not too be maintained well. Restaurant for dinner and breakfast was a disappointment from a quality and somehow friendliness point of view.

We had come from Las Vegas to visit death valley.Decided to stay the night here.It is right in the center of the park so you are right here.That being said the rooms are adequate at best.Not really big rooms.The water in the bathroom sink was very bad.
The property itself is in a beautiful section of the park.They have a pretty good restaurant and general store here.I was not able to get on the internet here but others were able to but it took a while.They have complimentary coffee in the morning which was very good in the lounge near the office.The price was nearly half of furnace creek inn but not a bargain.

Upscale hotel in the desert. All the amenities of the city but located in the great nowhere. Can't complain about the place since it is so remote. The parking lot is vast and unpaved. If you value the hide of your beautiful car don't take it there. Food at the restaurant was fair to good. The breakfast croissants were outstanding. I wondered where they got them Not inexpensive, be prepared to spend bucks..

Room Tip: Higher priced rooms are away from highway

I reserved 3 nights here knowing that there is no cell phone service and pitiful wi-fi. I think it was great for me, my husband, and kids 8 and 11 to be disconnected from phones/computers for a family vacation. I loved staying here because it was so low key and did not have the busy touristy feel that Furnace Creek has. I was able to drive to the Mesquite Sand Dunes a few miles away to watch the sunrise. My only complaint is that the pool heater was broken and the pool was freezing. The rooms did not have enough towels and the shower head is designed for a person 48 inches tall, but i did not consider this to be a big deal. We were comfortable for staying in the middle of the desert! Our bathtub was plugged and not draining our third night; maintenance promptly came to our room and fixed it. The food is better than I expected, it is just expensive....but again it is the middle of the desert. I will stay here again the next time I visit Death Valley!

Though I understand that you pay a premium for this location, but for me it was just the wrong side of the fence on value.
Our room was billed as "mountain view" - beware, as I could barely see the mountains beyond the parking lot and an accommodation block higher up. Any dream I had of flinging open the door at dawn and waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the mountains was quickly dashed.
The WiFi was slow and not available in the rooms - I would recommend the management actually turns it off until the service can be improved as it just created frustration.

Excellent rating earned because of the location. The hotel itself was a solid average. Matter of fact
I'd be very very unwilling to pay these rates for similar accommodations anywhere else. But given you're in the middle of Death Valley there's not a lot to chose from outside of camping and more expensive hotels. Panamint Springs isn't actually in Death Valley but would be a viable option.
Room was your average budget motel. Housekeeping was above average though. We found all employees in Stovepipe to be very nice and informative. It's like they enjoy being where they are and it reflects in the way they do their jobs.
The only real negative besides the high price....the shower head was only 5 feet high????
We would certainly stay here again (not a whole lot of other options) and loved Death Valley, all 4 corners. It was one of the most beautiful places I've been. I might check out the lodgings in Beatty next time. Quite a few employees were living there.
If you're only planning a drive through the valley I would recommend extending your stay. The views, drives, and hikes are amazing. Of course everyone has different tastes but to someone from the south who mostly vacations in and around oceans this place was jaw droppingly awesome. Topping the rise coming back from Scotties Castle I bet you can see for 30-40 miles.
We have a 5th wheel and coming in from the west I was thinking no way I'd tow it in. When we hit Panamint there were RV.s and tent campers everywhere though. Turns out coming in from the eastern route is very RV friendly. trailering up Panamint valley from the south wouldn't be too bad either but it's pretty steep going up and over into Death Valley.
I guess my truck would handle it OK but towing only around the south the thought of lugging up and braking down those mountains out west freaks me out.
We landed in LA and drove straight to Death Valley for 3 nights. Over to Sequoia for 1 night then up to Yosemite for 3 nights. Over and down Big Sur, Overnight in Morro Bay and then the whole LA/Hollywood tourist thing for 4 nights. Awesome trip.

Its the only place to stay in the park at a reasonable price. The room we had was in the old section, typical motel style but a nice view. Restaurant was nothing special but ok.The location is very good.
