Travellers' Choice
An elegant hideaway since 1927, The Inn at Death Valley is a AAA-rated four-diamond resort located in the heart of Death Valley National Park that still pampers every guest. The Inn has received a multi-million dollar renovation in 2018. It’s the perfect place to reclaim your senses as you relax near the spring-fed pool, stroll through palm gardens to the melody of the natural springs, watch a glorious sunset from one of the quaint stone patios or enjoy a cool drink from Stargazers Deck. Make reservations at one of the National Park system’s premier historic hotels.

My travel bestie and I did the research… we knew that The Inn was mostly closed due to covid, and decided to visit despite the forecast of hottest days of the year. No traditional hotel services or food available at The Inn in June 2021 (check-in was at The Ranch), except at the pool, where seasoned, talented and knowledgable Mike runs a formidable one-man-show of exceptional hospitality. Pool menu is limited, drinks are divine. Our fave was the Yummy Rummy Float(y)! Well-appointed casitas, excellent A/C, and fun golf carts. The grounds are thoughtfully designed and diligently maintained, enhancing the original value of this magnificent and historic property. We’re planning a return visit, as soon as the temps are a little kinder!

I don’t know where to start. My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Death Valley for 1 night, the night of June 9th. I am so relieved we only booked one night. Our stay was a nightmare to say the least!!! Check-in- We drove to the hotel’s entrance and was greeted by a friendly young man outside who was sweating bullets. He seemed to be the only one who was able to check us in. He explained the grounds of the hotel, then drove down to meet us at our car, then transferred our luggage via gold cart to our casita, and had to do it all over again for the next two couples who were waiting. Clearly short staffed from the get-go. Our room/Casita: At first glance it was cute. But not for long. There were two water bottles waiting for us in room… and the plastic water bottles were disfigured/unable to stand upright. Makes me wonder how they were stored prior to being distributed to us… knowing that Death Valley is a HOT place, it appeared as though these plastic water bottles have melted from these hot conditions. And you know melted water bottles are TOXIC for you (just google the effects on BPA on your body). Our bed: THIS IS THE WORST PART! When I was retiring to bed that evening, I got into bed and the bed felt very unclean: meaning I felt little crumbs/sand under the covers. When I quickly got out and flipped the covers, to my dismay, I witnessed some NASTY CURLY SHORT HAIRS ALL OVER THE BED, filthy shoe marks, and dark red stains on the fitted sheet! It was absolutely disgusting and I just couldn’t believe no one changes the sheets for new guests here!!! Esp during a pandemic! What was worse was when I called to complain (very nicely, I am not a confrontational person) the woman cut me off and placed me on hold. A few minutes later she said “OK. Someone is going to bring you new sheets ok?” Wow, no apology or anything. In about 20 mins I heard a knock on our door and a man brought us clean sheets (in a clear garbage bag), did not say a word and again no apology or nothing, and just left! Awesome how we spent a night during a vaca changing dirty sheets to clean ones. Restaurant: Literally there is ONLY ONE RESTAURANT IN THE WHOLE OASIS/INN/RANCH at Death Valley area. You only have one place where you can get dinner. There was only one bartender who was taking dinner orders and a loooong line of people (out the door)!! The menu was suuuuper overpriced and the serving size was terribly small. My husband and I spent over a hundred dollars on a tiny piece of filet mignon and a salad. Pool: I did not have time to enjoy the pool, and wouldn’t have enjoyed it even if I did have time. The pool was clearly neglected, and not maintained. It was covered with dirt, leaves/ dead flowers. The surrounding area was not set up properly. Sad. I am an avid instagrammer and wanted at least a nice pool photo to post… but nope, that’s not going to happen here. Bottom line: I felt we were severely overcharged ($500/night!!) for the crazy lack of services and poorly maintained, filthy property that is cutting corners left and right and not hiring the appropriate amt of staff. I will never ever stay at the Inn at Death Valley or its sister properties ever again. Please stay elsewhere!! Or just do a day trip from Vegas… You’ve been warned!!

I had look forward to staying at the Inn for a long time and was disappointed that most of the inn was closed and none of the restaurants were serving. Our casita was terrific and the personal golf cart was a nice touch. The grounds and pool are well maintained and lovely. I thought it was a bit expensive given the lack of access to the Inn, food service, and gift shop (we had to drive to the nearby shopping area) but overall, we were pleased with our stay and recommend the Inn

Went for 4 days. Stayed in an awesome Casita with amazing bedding, bathroom, living room, EVERYTHING. The golf cart was fun to have as well. The service at the front desk and in the restaurant was all top notch. Pool area was really nice, plenty of towels.

I understand that there is a pandemic but being that this is the only hotel in Death Valley, I felt like we were overcharged for the lack of services that would typically be provided were in not during Covid. There was only 1 bartender taking food orders at the only restaurant available with a very long line. We were told that the restaurant was going to be open at The Inn and it wasn't. We sat in our room and ate lousy wrap sandwiches from your grocery store. NOT IMPRESSED!. However, the very few staff members that were on site were very helpful and friendly. The property is gorgeous. VERY inconvenient to go from The Inn to The Ranch. Perhaps they should have a shuttle that goes back and forth. Only the pool and ice machine were available at The Inn. Not even a cold water cooler. IF they can't operate as advertised, then they shouldn't open at all or give a gigantic discount
