I wanted a place inside the park, didn't want to drive in and out. This resort was in Furnace Creek, very close to road to hiking trails and attractions. And it is a beautiful place with palm trees and several dining options.

My room. Sheets for both beds were not changed. I found hair on the bed. I asked for sheets and pillow cases and changed them myself. Not happy.

We stayed in room 905 last night and there was some type of crumbs… maybe large cookie crumbs next to the boards that surround the bed. I took a picture if you would like it. It’s understandable that it is a bit Sandy & dusty but the food crumbs in the room were a bit much.
