No improvements from the '30s. No outlets in the bathroom. Couldn't get the door to open at first. Very run down. No restaurants in the area. Thank heavens I ate dinner 16 miles down the road. No TV. No blow dryer. No one on site between 9pm and 9am.

Can't believe they have donation cups situated around the common areas. No cell service or wifi service. Only phones are in the lobby!...and you need a code to get in there after hours. God forbid if there was a fire!!

The room reeked of what smelled like a combination of sewage, vomit, and dead animals. I wouldn't be surprised if there was something dead in the walls. The carpet appeared to be 50 years old, dirty, and disgusting.

The wall to wall carpeting was separated in many places and wrinkled. We wondered what kind of pathogens the carpet might contain. There was a dead cockroach in the room. We kept our luggage in the car so that it wouldn't get contaminated. We turned on the air conditioner, hoping it would help with the smell. The A/C did put out some cold air, was very noisy, but did nothing for the smell. I met the persons in the next room and they were as disgusted as me. We both scrambled to find someplace else. Although we had reserved the room for two nights, we got out of there as early as possible the next morning, after a nearly sleepless night worrying about the cause of the stench. We hope to get a refund for the night we didn't use. Outside the room, the smell wasn't quite so bad, but I noticed many air fresheners. The health department should check out this hotel. Priceline.com should sever all relationships with this hotel. ...read more

Location. Also, we are happy that, because of the poor management of our booking, in spite of the received confirmation, there was only one night available, and we didn't have to stick there for 3 nights, as was planned.
Everything. We had an overall feeling that the owner totally disrespects the customers.

If you enjoy spending your vacation at fixer-upper which smells like a dirty public restroom - this place is for you. The furniture in the room would not be accepted even for donation. The curtains left an open space, so it was impossible to undress with the light turned on. The AC didn't work, and we had a heater, which was so noisy that we couldn't have it working at night. The result ¿ it was freezing. No additional blanket. Only 2 hangers. No TV, only one wall outlet, no table, WiFi ¿ only in the lobby, no cell phone service. This place was never renewed outside or inside. There is no place to put shaving or washing things. The hotel and the café are extremely overpriced. Overall feeling ¿ disgusting. ...read more

I liked it was secluded. Great star watching.
Expensive gas. Shower did not work. No parking. Small rooms.

It is what it is. If you want luxury go to Stovepipe Wells or Furnace Creek and pay 200 and up for a room. The cottages were small, showers barely worked, and parking space could barely fit our jeep. Booking was a nightmare because this area has iffy phone service. But, I booked and on our trip we stayed. The restaurant is overpriced. The store has barely anything in it. Just some drinks, chips, souvenirs... Cashier was sort of weird, but nice. The waitress at the restaurant failed to look us in the eyes. Gas was 6.28 a gallon. There was WiFi, but it rarely worked. The next day we drove over the mountains to Lone Pine, a great place with cheap gas and plenty of lodging. If you can make it another 60 miles, go there instead. All in all, the stay was good for what it was. ...read more

The best thing about this hotel is its fascinating history, and although its proximity to Death Valley. We wanted to see wildflowers, and the only flowers we found were those located along the road from our hotel to Death Valley!
The hotel was aging, in disrepair, our room was uninteresting and spartan. The desk was not manned most of the time. We had to hang a blanket in the window to keep light out at night.

The value of this hotel is its history. The story of Marta Becket and her renovation of the opera house is fascinating. The murals in the opera house are beautiful and charming. I would love to perform there. The rooms are not very nice, the area is bleak and run down, there aren't any amenities. We stayed here only because everything else in the area was booked and this was the only place that still had vacancies. We would not stay there again. ...read more

I never saw any of the staff. Our key was in an envelope taped to the office door when we arrived (about 5:30 pm) and the office was locked in the morning when we left (about 6:20 am).
The hotel is very 'rustic'. The carpet, bedspread, and furniture are very old. We slept on air mattresses and our blankets because we questioned the cleanliness.

I would choose to stay at one of the campgrounds in Death Valley over staying at the hotel. The only plus to staying at the hotel was having a bathroom with a shower, but even the bathroom had broken and very uneven tiles.
