Basic accommodation in the middle of nowhere
Stovepipe Wells was right within expectations. Its basic, clean accommodation in the middle to Death Valley - very close to the sand dunes. We stayed overnight and ate in the diner - which was fine.
Front desk were friendly, though a bit slow with a line building up.
The pool was good to cool off and relax.

Lovely but disappointed me
This is a great basic place in the middle of Death Valley. Clean and comfortable accommodation with a nice bar (although some staff make no effort to communicate with foreign visitors).
But we were disappointed that the pool was out of action when we were there and no reduction was offered.

Spring Break Adventure
Stovepipe Wells Village Hotel is a great location for numerous adventures within the park. Four Wheel Drive roads like Cottonwood Canyon Road out past Stovepipe Wells Airstrip is a fun drive. The gas station and country store are across the street. The hotel is a no frills room but the grounds are cool and surroundings are spectacular. We did the Titus Canyon offroad trip and will come back to spend the night at the racetrack which we were not prepared to do on our first trip(24 miles of washboard road. You need to have a reliable air compressor and lower tire pressure to 18lbs for comfort while offroad). There are sand dunes for hiking and sand boarding ten minutes from the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find a decent meal at the motel restaurant. Everything in the Park is managed well but this location is where you want to be. Not Cheap for what it is...but you will have a clean comfortable room.

All you need in the middle of nowhere
Sat within the Death Valley National Park, this place is quite literally in the middle of nowhere. So it was a pleasant surprise to enter our room off the patio (No.5) and find reasonably pleasant and well equipped accommodation. The MGM Grand it is not, but it’s clean, quite spacious and has all the facilities that you require for a stay in......the middle of nowhere. The AC is mercifully efficient, it was 43C outside, if a little noisy and quickly cooled the room down to a refreshing temperature. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet (apart from the AC) and we had a good restful nights sleep.
Staff are very friendly, helpful and informative and we spurned an offer of a dip in the pool for a shower and an early dinner. Dinner was served in the Saloon that night (rather than the diner) and Kimberly was a pleasant and ultra energetic waitress (who made the energiser bunny look lazy). She helped us with our meal and drink selection, also keeping us hydrated with iced water. There’s a good menu selection and the chicken and ribs were perfect. Probably a little pricy but not outrageous. Breakfast was in the diner, buffet style and frankly mediocre. For 13:50 USD I would have expected a better selection.
Overall this place is great. Views out to the desert, the sand dunes are close by and a great place to rest up after a tiring day exploring Death Valley.
