Amazing hotel at a truly magical place
We stayed for one night only at the ranch, in two guests rooms both with 2 queen beds.
The beauty of the place is staggering, but only closely followed by quality of rooms and service here. We had dinner in the steakhouse, which was excellent if a little pricey, breakfast at the buffet (well priced and adequate), and also used the pool and other amenities. The staff could not have been more helpful, and given the location it really is an oasis in the desert.
We also did the 1 hour horseriding experience in the valley, which was very very good. For novice riders, the staff were excellent, and the horses very gentle.
Overall i wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Dumpy little rooms with cockroaches for $230 a night in off season. WHAT a RIP OFF!!!
I cannot begin to express how deeply disappointed we were with The Ranch at Death Valley. I see that it has some good reviews. Maybe it depends what room you are booked in. We were in the cabins. We were the guest of someone else so we could not complain directly. If I had I been paying I would have demanded a different room, or $ back. The room was very small. The wall in front of toilet bowl is only 10" from the toilet, so one has to sit sideways. The shower basin was cracked. There was mold on the tiles. The window was disgusting. There was grime all over the phone. The entrance had mud. Wifi did not work. And the frosting on the cake was the cockroaches. And they charge $230 for this plus a $13 resort fee. I cannot begin to express how awful this place is. Waitress was surly in steak house. The check in process was so s-l-o-w. They charge $3.00 for a soda in the general store. That's worse than a ski resort. Mattress was good. In room coffee was good. Had a new sink. But shelf on bottom was dusty. TV was blurry. Convenient parking. BUT DO NOT GO HERE.

Enjoyed the Ranch!
Since I had not been here in a very long time, I was pleasantly surprised about the new look and feel of the place. It's like a small town, grocery/gift store, restaurant/pub, outdoor museum, pool, large grassy areas, a golf course a few minutes away ....... I didn't stay here this time but would definitely consider this depending on pricing.

Rude staff at reception.
Rooms were not ready at check-in.
Dirty all around.
Expensive dining (and average meals) and amenities.
Internet does not work at all and no 4G/3G.
Just drive past Death Valley, it’s not worth staying in.
