Given the hostile environment, the ranch at Death Valley is a wonder of engineering. To build and run a hotel in such harsh conditions is incredible. The cottages are well equipped with excellent air conditioning. The pool is a fantastic way to cool off from the arid heat. The saloon has excellent food, but the service leaves something to be desired. Visit the village store for some great souvenirs of a memorable trip.

Cool location but food quality let it down

We stayed here for one night on our USA roadtrip, travelling from Yosemite NP to Las Vegas. It was a really interesting location and site, in the middle of the desert and with old ranch/mining equipment displayed. The pool area was lovely. Our room itself was quite old, dated and musty but still spacious and the air con worked well (very much needed). Upon check-in, we were advised that the main saloon restaurant wasn't serving food that night but that we could either travel to their sister hotel down the road or go to the buffet restaurant. The buffet was very overpriced and the food quality was poor - cold and looked like it had been left out all evening. Not ideal but 'fine' for one night.

Wonderful experience

Great experience as it was a wonderful surprise in the middle of Death Valley. We enjoyed our stay with great food and service. From check-in, dinner at The Saloon, the Ice Cream Parlor, The General Store, and breakfast at The 1849, the staff were friendly and engaging. The rooms in the cottages were clean and cozy. The fans with cool mist were nice after driving through Death Valley. The store is well stocked with needs and wants.

Do not stay here!

This hotel is very old and dirty! The carpet was filthy and the air conditioner was broke in 115 degree weather. They said they would fix it and came to the room and said it was set too low that we shouldn't have it below 70 as it would freeze up. Really!! It never did start working so they moved my son and family to another room in a different area. The day we were going to check in, they sent us a text that said they were having a planned power outage the next day, June 24, from 8am to 4pm. Really again!! It was after the 24 hour cancellation time, so we were stuck with the rooms. I would not stay here!

Beautiful and charming oasis

What a sweet, quaint little oasis in the middle of the desert. We arrived shortly after check in time and received an upgraded room. We stayed in a cottage which was on a tree-lined lane facing other cottages. It felt like a little neighborhood. We walked to The Last Kind Word Salon and enjoyed a delicious meal and we treated ourselves at the ice cream shop on the walk back to the cottage. All together a beautiful spot in the middle of a uniquely beautiful National Park.
