The Inn at Death Valley

An elegant hideaway since 1927, The Inn at Death Valley is a AAA-rated four-diamond resort located in the heart of Death Valley National Park that still pampers every guest.

It’s the perfect place to reclaim your senses as you relax near the spring-fed pool, stroll through palm gardens to the melody of the natural springs, watch a glorious sunset from one of the quaint stone patios or enjoy a cool drink from Stargazers Deck. Make reservations at one of the National Park system’s premier historic hotels.

Such a great place with such a bad service ((

I stayed in March 2021, I was seduced by the photographies of the hotel, & indeed it worth to stay here for the place... BUT THE STAFF ! This hotel pretend to be a 5 stars - and the price is accordingly (( I arrived at 9PM with 2 luggages - nobody to help - stairs to climb by myself - I had to ask the reception staff where to park the car otherwise nobody helps you to understand how it works (no valet parking) I wanted to have a diner, I was refused to be served at the restaurant and even at the bar - I was told that I need to book - Breakfast : same thing, at 8AM the queue was 1 hour, and the service is so slow (40min to wait for simple egs & pancakes) The only good thing is the room and the view

The Ranch At Death Valley

The Ranch at Death Valley, situated in Death Valley National Park, is just 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada and 275 miles northeast of Los Angeles, California. The Ranch at Death Valley offers accommodations in a casual, family-like setting — the perfect complement to the classic elegance of the Inn at Death Valley. As you wander around the expansive grounds, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to when this site was established as a working ranch. Yet, you’ll enjoy the amenities of modern civilization, like quiet, clean rooms, a spring-fed swimming pool, large grass lawns, sports courts, a children’s playground and the National Park Service Visitor’s Center – which is just a stone’s throw away. So is the 18-hole golf course – the lowest elevation course in the world – and Golf Pro Shop. The Ranch at Death Valley is the ideal place to stay when visiting Death Valley National Park.

Such a disappointment!

First & foremost - we would give the staff 5 stars - each member was very accommodating, professional & helpful. But the facilities are outdated and poorly maintained. Our patio area was nasty. The room decor was mediocre and the mattresses were past their useful life. We selected our room due to its proximity to the spring feed pool, which was closed. We had been provided no notice of this. Several areas onsite were also closed and they had the audacity to charge a $22 resort fee - for what services we have no idea. This is not a 5-star resort or even close to it. We originally reserved 2 nights, but checked out after the first night. As far as Death Valley National Park - simply outstanding.

Panamint Springs Resort

Panamint Springs is a small western-style resort seated in the beautiful Panamint Valley in Death Valley National Park. Marvelous views of distant sand dunes and the soaring 11,000' Panamint Mountains complete the setting for leisure dining and relaxation. Panamint Springs offers 14 motel rooms & 1 cottage, restaurant, campgrounds, RV park, gas station, and mini-mart. Our motel rooms are very basic, but clean. Our rooms are cooled with an evaporative cooling system. Some units offer their own A/C window unit in addition to this. We are pet friendly, however additional fees apply. If you are planning on doing some exploring, you'll find that Panamint Springs makes a great base camp for neighboring ghost towns, abandoned mines, and even desert waterfalls. Great for 4-wheel drive exploring, hiking, biking, or just relaxing!

Basic & overpriced

Reviewed By kzb2014

The historic cabins are quaint & clean, except for the carpet which was a bit gritty due to the sand being tracked in. But they were very basic - no TV, no wifi. The electrics gave me a shock & shorted out when I tried to adjust the fan. Only one roll of toilet paper was provided for a 3 night stay. These things were fixed when we asked - but we had to ask! The bar aspect of the bar/restaurant was good and the staff friendly. But the food was abysmal & inedible Could have been lovely but it wasn't

We stayed for a few nights here, the rooms are basic with good air conditioning. However the surroundings are beautiful. Breakfast and dinner food wise was very good and the lady in the morning serving was a blast. I will absolutely stay here again, perfect location, good food, general store across the road and very friendly staff.

Stovepipe Wells Village

The Worst or close to it.

Reviewed By deepchi

No desk or table. No chair. Rest of furniture for little people. Insufficient towels No phone. No wifi. No blanket on the bed. Semen stained blanket in the closet. Lousy pillows. Noisy adjoining rooms. Not their fault but lost electricity. Gas station stopped working. Clueless staff at the store. Very small room and bathroom. Toilet didn’t flush properly. Very pricey for this! Only reason to stay is if you have a dog or you are a masochist. No complimentary breakfast
