Stovepipe Wells Village Hotel

Reviewed 29 november, 2021

At first we highly appreciate they operate the hotel at such a remote area. But we like to have some improvement on the hotel. One bad thing on our room is, bad smell. I don't know exact reason of the smell, but it's like rotten fish.


Decent hotel, service lacking

Reviewed 18 november, 2021

While certainly fitting the bill as a clean and comfortable older style motel in a beautiful location, we had a few issues that one would think could be addressed, especially for this price range. One of the main reasons for staying here is the proximity to the sand dunes of Death Valley National Park; for those interested in hiking or photography this location is unbeatable. However, the hotel seems to have an odd reservation system of, you're assigned a room at booking, and it doesn't matter if at check in there are ten other rooms in your category ready to go, if yours isn't ready, you'll have to wait, and that could be as late as 4 pm. For those arriving early afternoon and wishing to go out to the dunes for sunset, this is a serious inconvenience. Other places not able to accommodate early check in will give the guest a call when their room is ready - not here. One must check back every once in a while and risk the ire of the surly front desk staff, or just wait until 4 pm. (Irwin was the one clerk with a friendly attitude.) The overall feeling of the place, is that of a hotel not appreciative of one's business -- an inside the park hotel with a lucrative government deal, and not working very hard toward the satisfaction of guests. The other issues were wifi that only reaches the rooms closest to the lobby, and old noisy AC units that sound like a helicopter taking off every time they turn on. If you don't need to be near the sand dunes, you might be better off at Furnace Creek, or even outside the park in Beatty or Shoshone.


While it's the only reasonably priced option - you won't be disappointed.

Ok. So. You are in the middle of Death Valley. For a city girl it can be a little/lot unsettling. The folks at the front desk were so patient in answering my concerns. Roadrunner building seemed to be newer and a bit secluded with the walk-in shower the most updated part of the room. Fantastic night sky. Small market just across the road. Also gas. Restaurant works hard to accommodate all. Minimum choices. Hey . . You are in the middle of . . well . . the desert. It's all good.

Annual Death Valley Vacation

Reviewed 26 october, 2021

We stayed at Stovepipe Wells for almost a week during our annual trip to the Death Valley National Park back country. The hotel is dated, lacks good internet service, is marginally appointed, and we’ve been loving it that way for for 20 years. We hope the rustic atmosphere never changes. Our major complaint is with the restaurant. We were told that the restaurant was closed but that the bar was serving the complete restaurant menu. That’s not correct. Although the bar is now serving a bacon and egg breakfast, dinner is limited to fried bar food such as burgers, flat iron steak, fries, and chicken chunks. They do offer a basic salad. In true remote Death Valley fashion, this is the only dining option in a 45 mile radius. I miss the days of pork chops, grilled salmon, and jalapeño corn bread in the restaurant. Maybe things will return to normal next year.


Expect a hotel experience worth half the price they charge

I stayed at this hotel last night for one night, I booked a reservation through the hotel because apparently they don't work with third party booking agents. I paid $164 plus taxes for a "Patio Room". The Good: The room was reasonably clean, I have no complaints on that front. There was a tv, coffee maker, refrigerator (and I think) a microwave, so the room was reasonably appointed. The Bad: The "patio" is nothing special, it is a courtyard in front of the room, with no real furniture, so my fantasy of sitting out on a patio enjoying a cocktail was not possible. The room was guite small (probably okay for one person, but two would be a crowd) The wifi was ridiculously slow (I could not stream anything, and even web searches were painfully slow (remember dial up speeds?) The TV remote was not programmed, so I had to get up and change the TV with the buttons on the side The content excluded ESPN (sorry but that is fatal for me) The AC did not work, which was not fatal in October, but I would have slept better if I could have cooled down the room some. The bed was horribly uncomfortable. It is clear they either use cheap mattresses, and/or don't change them up very often. They should be charging under $100, but there is no competition within shouting distance, so they can get away with this overcharge.
