This is an excellent place to stay when visiting Death Valley. The cost is less than half of what you'd pay by staying in the Park. It's not the Ritz, but it's very comfortable.
Quiet - from room 21 we couldn't hear road noise. The next room was occupied for the three nights we were there, but we never heard the neighbors.
Room size: larger than most.
Clean: an older property, but everything was spotlessly clean.
Everything works: the Wifi, microwave and fridge worked well and the fridge's compressor was almost silent. Don't know about the heat, AC and TV because we didn't use them.
Management: excellent, helpful management. We asked for extra plastic cups and they left 10 of them.
Towels: still had plenty of life in them, not the threadbare towels often found in budget motels.
CONS: a 35 minute drive to Stovepipe Wells or Furnace Creek. But the drive is gorgeous and the extra gas costs much less than the additional cost of staying in the Park.
