Stayed at a cottage at the Ranch in Nov with our family of 4. Great size for us - two queens in bedroom and sleeper sofa. But if you are in Death Valley, you shouldn't spend much time in your room so get out and explore. Food options are buffet, saloon [didn't have availability] or market. All are a little expensive but it's the closest food for miles if you are there. But it's great to be in the middle of the park.

Recommended stay with kids and family

Must stay at this Oasis with amazing facilities in the middle of Death Valley. Rooms and facility overall is a bit older and you can notice that but fantastic to see pool, tennis courts, kids park, a nice outdoor seating, fireplaces, restaurants and general store. We stayed with 2 kids and both of them loved everything that was there to explore. Food was on the expensive side but given it is middle of nowhere, I was be ok to pay for it..

Good priced hotel in Death Valley

The Ranch at Death Valley is really conveniently located at the centre of Death Valley. The rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, and the room prices were good value, although this could partly reflect us visiting out of season and booking early. The only thing that we didn't like were the restaurants on site which were ridiculously expensive due to a lack of competition. We however had been pre-warned about this and so brought our own food with us.

Been there 5 years ago and good - now rubbish

Stay at the Inn. The rooms are dated and air con very very very noisy ! Don’t expect to sleep. As for restaurant it’s like a school canteen ! We were convinced it was closed when we drove up as it’s a building site - would have kept going if there was a choice

Really lovely accommodation, shame about the high cost of meals

We really, really liked the accommodation at The Ranch. Having stayed here 14 years ago, I can see a lot of money has been put into upgrading the place and wow what a difference. The rooms were fairly similar to last time but I liked it then too. This time we were in block 900 at the very back on the 1st floor with a lovely balcony with rocking chairs and overlooking the golf course. As others have stated, hard to carry luggage up the stairs in the heat, we could park near the block we were staying in which helped as it would have been a long walk if we were parked at the front of The Ranch. Checkin and out was quick and easy, I had an interesting chat with the staff about all the changes that had been made there in the last few years. Restaurants have changed, a souvenir shop, cottage accomodation, the main building for "Guest Registration" etc. The onsite museum was closed for refurbishment and we didn't have time to use the pool. The room has air con and ceiling fans and everything you need and expect in a hotel room, beds were comfy and the block was quiet. Our only issue as others have also said was the prices at the restaurants! We ate in the Saloon which had great decor, it was really busy and a limited menu, my chicken caesar salad was $31 and partners steak was $44, both were very nice though. For lunch next day we had to have the buffet which was $24 each but there wasn't much choice, both of us were disappointed and we definately didn't get our monies worth, also considering we arrived as it opened, most of the "hot" food was cold. It definately helps with enjoying time in DV if you stay here and I can't fault the accomodation itself and considering its in the middle of nowhere they have everything you need except food choice at a decent/affordable price.
