Nice Stay in Death Valley
We stayed two nights at the Stovepipe Wells Village Hotel while visiting Death Valley and had a nice stay. Staff were friendly at check-in and the room was clean and spacious. They're motel style rooms so nothing fancy, but just fine for a couple nights. There is a restaurant and saloon on the property and the general store and gas station is just across the street. The prices here a much more reasonable than at the oasis. Stovepipe Wells is very close to Mosaic Canyon and Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes and provides easy access. We visited the dunes one night after dark to stargaze. Overall, a really nice stay and more reasonable prices compared to the oasis.

Perfect base to explore Death Valley.
This hotel was clean, has big rooms, a large pool, a decent restaurant and convenience store. Perhaps most importantly it's right in the middle of the action of Death Valley. Perfect location and just right for an active vacation. Stovepipe Wells gets 5 stars, but in the context of not being or trying to be a fancy hotel. It isn't fancy nor should it be. You came to see Death Valley not hang out in a hotel room. We'll stay here on our next trip.

Horrible very upsetting experience.
I’ve just had the most outrageous experience here at the Stovepipe Village Hotel where I’ve paid 200$ for a room. Ready to go to bed, I realise there are no blankets on the bed nor in the room. Just a sheet. It’s January 11th and it’s pretty cold, 9 degrees outside. I go to the reception and ask for a blanket; the man I talked to brings a very thin one to my room. I ask for another one and he says that’s all they have: I insist because I know I’ll be cold and he starts raising his voice and tells me to talk to the manager in the morning. I tell him that in the morning it will be too late and that I need an extra blanket now. The man shouts at me that if I don’t stop he will get me removed from the property (it’s 10pm in the middle of the Death Valley!) and that he will call the cops on me!!!! I couldn’t believe my ears! I tell him yes please do that! I go into the reception again where two ladies employees looked as surprised as I was. One of them in no time gave me a second blanket. They refuse to comment on the behaviour of the crazy guy who threatened me in a manner that I will remember forever. I will talk to the manager in the morning and file the harshest complaint ever against this man and the hotel that employs nuts. The American way: CALL THE COPS ON A PAYING GUEST WHO ALSO HAPPEN TO BE A 60YEAR OLD WOMAN. Unbelievable!

Good place to stay at Death Valley
The room was basic and a bit small, but served our needs well. It was clean, had a small refrigerator, generally quiet, and the location is great for hiking. Also, the rate was so much better than the other DV hotels. One worker there named Ramon was so very helpful and nice. The restaurant was fine for one meal, but the menu is very limited. The General Store is nice and they even let us use their microwave to heat up leftovers. Only improvements that were needed that we saw were for a better shower head and a microwave in the room or maybe in the common area.

Room needs to be fixed
The room is small. The bathtub is awful. It needs to be replaced. The mirror hung too low. I am 6 ft tall. The showerhead could be better. The mattress needs to be updated! The restaurant could be more useful. They don't have any fruits or vegan meals. All they have is hamburgers and fries. It has stayed the same for years, It is time for them to change the menu every season. The general store across from the hotel could be better. The hotel room does not provide a microwave due to fire safety. l
