A Real Disappointment
We were really looking forward to this stop. Beautiful location and the staff were friendly and helpful. Everything else was horribly disappointing. We ate at the buffet for dinner....wildly expensive and the food was awful. The best food on the buffet was chicken fingers. Everything else should have gone from the kitchen to the dumpster. The grounds looked like they had been abandoned years ago....the putting green was dilapidated, the tennis courts looked unusable with bent and torn fencing all around, the furniture outside our room was completely covered in dust, the pool had debris sitting all over the bottom. And who in their right mind would build a horse stable right next to hotel rooms so the guests can enjoy the smell of manure during their stay!? Never again.

Outside bling bling, Inside dirty and old. SHAME ON YOU
Hi, my husband an i spent one night at Ranch at death valley. The travel agency booked a standard room which not a little price, and we spent our night to your horrible building 6. Outside of the hotel is ok, but this building and these rooms are a shame for the price !!! How can u propose room at this price in a such dirty building ? I said that to your team, and Miss Johnson said to me to write u. I want a feedback of my money, because it is really unacceptable. I sent u a message by email and messenger, but the management of this hotel seems like he didn't t see them. I booked one night on 30th of september. It is the worst hotel where we slept during our 4 weeks west trip. SCAMMERS.

Stay right in Death Valley!
We loved the Ranch at Death Valley because it is right in the heart of the national park, with many amenities. Our room was very attractive, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We ate our breakfasts outside on the patio. We especially enjoyed the wonderful spring-fed swimming pool! The Ranch also has golf, tennis, horses, a train museum, a children’s playground, and a few shops. The buffet restaurant is pricey, but the food was generous and good. I suggest you bring some snacks of your own to keep in your room refrigerator, so you don’t have to buy all your meals. Best of all, the Ranch is an easy drive to Death Valley’s most famous sights.

Very nice room in the park; Recommend
We wanted to stay in Death Valley for 1 night so settled on the Ranch. We went in Sept (high was 119 deg F!) so it was their off season. We got a very large room with two beds on the first floor of a 2 story building. We never heard anyone above us; my guess is it was empty. We had plenty of room for 2 adults and I bet 4 adults would have fit just fine. We had a patio that faced the courtyard but even at night it was too hot to use. The A/C worked fine and the ceiling fan was very much appreciated to keep us cool without having to blast the A/C. The bed and linens were comfortable; we had no problems sleeping. Everything was clean and in working order. The bathroom was a good size with very nice stonework. At $213 for the night, including all taxes & fees, it was worth it for us to stay in the park and not have to drive hours for overnight accommodations. So if you want to stay in the park, we recommend it.

Nice and Comfortable Stay but overpriced food
We stayed 2 nights at The Ranch at Death Valley. Our room was comfortable and looked like it was newly renovated. We enjoyed the spring fed pool both evenings after long days of exploring Death Valley National Park. We found the pool to be clean and a wonderful temperature. They have a newly renovated saloon and restaurant that has some interesting art work. The staff was very friendly and kind. Our one complaint was the food. The $30.00 dinner and the $17.00 breakfast buffets were way overpriced and gave us a sense that we were being ripped off and taken advantage of because of the remote location. The quality of the food was also subpar. The price and quality of the food is really was brings our rating down. I would rate overall experience to be a 4 but would have given it higher if the food quality and value were better.
