Simple Accomodations In Stark Surroundings
The accommodations at the Ranch At Death Valley are simple but comfortable in the stark environs of Death Valley. It is nice to be able to retire to the controlled temperature of your room and comfort of your bed after a hot day of sight seeing.
The facility has a couple of places to eat and a small convenience store. The Saloon is a particularly interesting spot to dine at. Do prepare yourself for a potentially long wait at the front desk during peak check-in/check-out times

Location, location, location.
Not too many places in Furnace creek so we stayed at the Ranch. The Ranch was too expensive for what you get. Don't stay near golf course. They were out mowing at 6:30 am. No free coffee. Check in office was a 100 yard walk but still no coffee. They directed us to the store where it was $4. The 2nd floor room was really outdated and needs attention. Deck floors rotten and carpeting ripped and torn. Door to deck didn't work, had to get a maintenance guy. But, cheaper than other place and convenient for day trips.

We would stay here again
The bad: This is not a luxury hotel, but is expensive. The rooms are badly overdue for an upgrade/renovation. Food was expensive.
The good: we were really happy with our stay. The staff was friendly, the grounds and public spaces were nice and very clean. The kids had a great time in the pool! Yes, the buffet was overpriced, but there was plenty of food and it was fine. The location is perfect for visiting the park. The store had lots of options for snacks (even healthy stuff!) and supplies you might need.
Overall...it was expensive but we would stay here again.

The location is very convenient. Right in the middle practically. The service is very good. The front desk answered questions tirelessly and their security person - Ian, i think was his name, extremely fast in responding - once i had a concern with if where i parked was a legit parking space ( could mark the spaces better) and the other time was when i needed first aid for a big scratch on my leg. He was dutiful and kind.
The room was big and well layout. We had a nice view of the golf course.
I enjoyed my stay. Expensive but it is location, location, location.

If you are going to spend a few days or more at Death Valley, the Ranch at Death Valley is probably the best choice as it's fairly close to the main attractions. Room was clean, very easy walk to a few of the local eateries, pool, parking, other onsite attractions. Staff are super friendly. The food is typical for tourists at the national park - limited on selection, a bit pricey, yet the quality was fairly good. Gas prices not unreasonable for the location - make sure you top-off if you intend to drive to far-off locations in the park, as there are only 3 stations (and 1 was closed - Stovewell Pipes). Overall, it's worth a revisit.
