We stayed here while we exploring Death Valley park in January 2023. It has a good location in Furnace Creek, close to Zabriskie Point and hiking trails. The room was nice and the property had several places to eat and a general store. The restaurants are quite expensive, so be prepared for that. We ate on site at the saloon twice, and we ate at the more expensive Inn's restaurant once. The Inn is the more expensive property and is less than a mile from the ranch. The Inn had a better menu, and our meal wasn't more expensive than the ranch. The ranch's menu was limited and was mostly beef. The flat iron steak however was very good. We did not try the on site buffet restaurant. They had a buffet breakfast for $22 per person, but we didn't try it. You can get coffee and muffins at the general store. My wife got some kind of yogurt, granola, blueberry combo from the general store, but the top was very difficult to get off, and the blueberries exploded all over the room. I would stay here again mostly because it's so convenient to the park and there really aren't too many other choices. I do think they should have a few more things (like chicken) available on the menu. Since I'm nitpicking here I also found it strange that the saloon was always out of ice cream when there was an ice cream store in the next building, presumably run by the same management.

Don't come for the food. It's mediocre and expensive. Don't come for the room. It's fine. Don't come for the amenities. There aren't any. Come because this hotel is in the one of the strangest, most beautiful places on earth. That said, the hotel does have a pool and a golf course and there's a general store with most of the basics you need... so could be worse. But if you're smart you're up and out before dawn and back exhausted from a day of hiking, so the hotel doesn't really matter.

A second rate motel in a beautiful setting

The good: you are in the middle of Death Valley surrounded by gorgeous scenery, including the lovely trees and grounds of the resort. The rooms are a decent size and the patios with rocking chairs are nice. Lots of immediate hot water in the shower and responsive staff when we needed more coffee, etc. The bad: hard to pay this much for poorly maintained motel type accommodations and mediocre food options(and we got a cyber Monday deal). Hallways dirty and cluttered with housekeeping carts all day. We noticed something had spilled on the stairs and it remained there throughout our 3 day stay. . Other Xanterra properties manage to do better though equally isolated.

Casitas at The Ranch

Stayed at one of the casitas at The Ranch. Arrived around 2 pm and checked in. Casita was ready. It stills smells kinda new. Reasonably clean. Bed was ok. A couple of nits...The hot water pressure in the sink takes a while to reach a reasonable amount of flow. Like 1-2 minutes. It is just a trickle when you turn the hot water on. Shower pressure is low but acceptable. No daily room service. The wastebasket needs to be larger. Wifi is acceptable speed but keeps dropping off and you need to reconnect. Would stay here again.

On my bucket list to visit Death Valley during the winter. No regrets. The hotel met all of our needs. Our room was immaculate. Though they do not have daily maid service that did not hinder our needs of resupplying products. It is a beautiful place with a friendly and caring staff.
