The Oasis at Death Valley
Reviewed 3 August 2017

Great place to stay. The room was a bit dated but clean. The swimming pool alone with worth staying -watching the sunset in a naturally heated spring pool - priceless.
Try and go on a moonless night and you will not be disappointed.

(you might want to pack something to eat - the restaurant left a lot to be desired.)

Room Tip: If you can upgrade your room to a western view, sit in the rocking chairs outside your room and watc...

Spent one night in February, which probably is the best time to visit Death Valley. Definitely the nicest hotel in the area! The surroundings are just beautiful. You can’t believe how nice and green it is inside with the desert all around you! The rooms (at least the one that we stayed) however, are a very outdated and tiny. Looks like they haven’t been updated for ages. But you don’t go there to spend time in the room. You stay outside on the patio enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine. Bring your own bottle and just relax! Peace and quiet all over.

i recommand you to choose a room outside death valley national park, easy to drive in the park to visit, because inside the park Xantera service is very poor, no service, only give your credit card and pay! very expensive, bad service, bad quality for the price, bad welcome, no help for parking, people staff crying no parking in front of my 404 motel room, room very not confortable, AC air conditioning not enough powerfull, very hot in the room, impossible to sleep, bathroom very not confortable, cold water is Hot ( hot wearher 126 Farenheit 47 Celsius) , shower impossible as cold water is like hot water, room very noisy, due to works near the hotel ( renovation in process ) you hear the noise of the trucks during the night, 2:36AM in the night i can't sleep with the trucks noise, impossible to use the terrace: plenty of dust due to the trucks works, so you go to the pool : good water but when it is sunny : no sun umbrella, no beach umbrella, no shadow all around the pool ; very not confortable , impossible to stay around the pool, you stay inside the pool inside the water ( wiith your hat ) or you go in your Hot room !!! and no beach towels in the pool, pool restrooms are old and not clean, pool furnitures are old, no pool bar, no pool staff, for the expensive room price it is a shame, conclusion so unconfortable i choose not to stay the second night and to move in an other hotel more confortable outside the national park and not expensive, i am not satisfied in general with the quality of Xantera organization for the rooms and for rhe bad quality of the foods in the restaurants, and for the prices very expensive, i recommand you to choose hotel outside national park, better quality, better prices, better service, Xantera is alone to manage the parks, no competitors hotel inside the parks, you are otage, your are not a guest, you are a credit card, don't worry it is easy to enter and exit the parks, i recommand you to choose hotels and restaurants outside the parks

To be fair, the location must make it extremely challenging to run a decent hotel here. In fact it is an attractive building and quite a nice hotel set in surprisingly verdant grounds where there is a natural spring. The accommodation is good but there was much wrong with the place which can't really be blamed on the location.

When we arrived they couldn't find the booking. Then when finally did find it they wanted to charge us although it was clearly a pre-paid booking. Fortunately a manager came along and quickly sorted things out. You got a significant electric shock when pressing the button for the lift. The fan and ceiling light was controlled by a remote control unit - but unfortunately it appeared as though it was also controlled by next doors remote control. It came on and off at unexpected times!

Breakfast was just bizarre. We were first to the dining room and asked for a table with a view. Despite there being 5 tables next to the windows, we were showed to an inside table. Subsequent guests got the window seats. We perused the menu and waited. There were 3 members of staff chatting away at the dining room entrance but nobody came to take an order. I eventually attracted their attention and someone came across and asked if they could help. I asked if someone could take our order and was told that she would see if she could find the waitress! Apparently it was not the job of any of the 3 to take an order. Eventually a very severe looking waitress came and took the order. They featured some date bread on the menu but they had none because the person who makes it was on days off. Apparently nobody else is capable of making it. We ordered a fruit platter only to find that much of it was well over-ripe and inedible. Coffee was advertised as a "large cup" but came in a tiny cup and was charged as an extra and not part of the breakfast price. This was particularly bizarre as they had a large urn of complimentary coffee sitting in the foyer just outside the door!

Fawlty Towers springs to mind, but as I say in the review title - it must be the heat.

We stopped here to grab refreshments after having to stop to clean up a vomiting child in Death Valley (even if you prepare your car, kids are not that reliable ;) ).

The service was horrible, I mean really bad, sometimes a member of the serving staff is having a bad day and you can let it go, but here it was the full team, we asked more than once for our order to be taken and were told to wait, then we would either just clean a table or just chat in a corner.... bad bad bad
