Rum floats on pretty patios, night time swims under a galaxy of stars, and pampering wellness treatments define a desert experience at the Inn at Death Valley.

In a beautifully barren desert landscape, it’s the pool, the palms, and the peaks that stand out at the Inn at Death Valley. On arrival, it feels like a mirage of greens and blues, but this elegant escape of red tile roofs, natural spring palm gardens, sun-blasted neutrals, and enchanting stone patios is indeed very real. In a knockout location inside the park, you’re close to all the main attractions - Zabriskie Point, Golden Canyon, and the Badwater Basin salt flats.

Once the hangout choice of bygone silver screen idols (Clark Gable and Bette Davis have both stayed), the Inn retains its old-school charm whilst infusing it with contemporary flair. Speedy Wi-Fi, satellite TVs and air conditioning are something of a rarity in the desert, but you’ll find them all here. Come for those unrelenting views of the Panamint Mountains and dunes beyond. Allow the natural spring-fed swimming pool to lure you in for a respite from adventurous excursions. And, drinking frozen margaritas on the Stargazer’s Deck, let those grape-black celestial skies remind you that there’s nothing but open space between you and the horizon.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $28 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.
