This is a decent place, I would definitely stay here again. There are a few points of interest and hiking in the area. The drive into the main part of Death Valley is straightforward, but the mountain road going toward Stovepipe Wells and Furnace Creek area is paved but steep. The motel people reported cars overheating even in the winter time. Remember there is no cellphone service in the entire park.
We rented a tent for 2 nights so as to sleep a little above Death Valley in October (cooler) and still to be able to drive to Furnace Creek and tour the park highlights in one day. (1 hr to Furnace Creek) and then drive back to Lone Pine (45 minutes) so my friend could get the bus/train to LA early the next morning. the location worked perfectly for these goals. But I actually moved into and slept in the car both nights because the wind made so much noise due to the tent flapping. My friend slept on the leeward side of the tent which was quieter. Our second night late arriving campers were very noisy.But it was easier than bringing our own tent and putting it up in the dark in a campground, they have fire rings and tables and the bathrooms were very clean. We brought Thermarest mattresses to make the cots better and our own sleeping bags and pillows. The signage to find the tents is tricky, Look for the RV sites signage on the north side of the road.
Amazing place. I liked everything from facilities to people. Best food, Best people. Amazing owner. The best sunrise watched ever. if i knew is so amazing i would definitely stay longer. I was there just one day. Very peaceful and relaxed place
The best part of the stay was the included breakfast the following morning. It was in line with what I expected for a free breakfast. The rest of the facilities have to be worked on and cleaned up to bring them in line with my minimum expectations for a $150 a night room. Small and older I can accept just fine. The parking area and space is a joke and should be addressed by the owners immediately. The bed had been made up for a dwarf. I had to remake it to fit me. The shower needs work and to get the cooling system to actually cool the room I had to open a window to allow air to escape so the cooled air could enter the room. Not big things, but at $150 a night, even in a National Park, it was not money well spent. And this is not a historic Death Valley Lodge kind of property.
