  • Probably your best option for families

    by Bob999 on 2018-04-17 08:29 am

    Traveling as family of four, we booked two deluxe rooms at the Ranch. The deluxe rooms are single story while the regular rooms are two story. We booked the single stories to avoid having people above us.

    We had desired connecting rooms and called after booking to request. They said they would put the request in, but could not guarantee it. The day before check in, we called again to remind them of our request. This time, they told us that connecting rooms did not exist at all, in contradiction to what they told us when we booked. At check in, we inquired a third time. This time, they pulled out a map of the property showing only 2 sets of connecting rooms, and none of our bedding type. Long story short - connecting rooms are unlikely to be available if that is important to you.

    The units look pretty old and worn on the outside, but have been fairly recently updated on the inside. Our units were both clean and in reasonable condition. The beds were comfortable. One of our units had a terribly loud a/c unit that made a horrendous noise whenever the a/c kicked on - which made sleep pretty much impossible. The second night, I cooled down the room as much as possible before bed and then turned the unit off for the night.

    We did not have dinner at the cafe on the property, but pre-booked tables at the Inn/Oasis a mile or so up the road which was expensive, but good. We did have lunch at the Ranch's restaurant and while the food options were pretty limited, they did have a pretty good salad bar.

    One last lesson learned - on our last day, we were heading towards Stovepipe Wells. I decided not to fill up my gas at Furnace Creek as it was a short drive. When we got to Stovepipe Wells, the power was out due to a windstorm and no gas was available. I regretted not just getting gas when I could. We had enough gas to get to the next station at Panamint, but this resulted in unnecessary anxiety. The infrastructure is pretty fragile out there.

  • Clean & Comfortable

    We stayed three nights at the Ranch at Death Valley. The location is great, right next to the Furnace Creek Visitor Center. Our room had been recently updated. It was quiet, had a good AC system, good shower, K-cup coffee maker and small refrigerator. The staff was efficient and friendly. Pretty amazing given that the place is located in the heart of the largest National Park in the lower 48, 100 miles from services.

  • What you get for the money in a National Park

    This is a basic motel. If you are expecting more for the exorbitant amount you are paying you will be disappointed. The beds are comfortable. There's AC and an okay bathroom. Clean if a bit old. A nice green oasis in the middle of a desert. There really is no choice. This is centrally located, close to everything. The National Park is huge so driving from outside the park would take a couple hours or more. I don't know how they get anyone to work here since it is so remote. Bring some of your own food. Choices are slim.and there is a refrigerator.

  • Not worth the money, but it was OK

    It was clean and tidy, plus it was quite nice looking out on to the golf course from our room; we also liked having the patio doors and chairs outside. It had a cheaper feel about the room and definitely wasn't worth the price, but not horrendous considering the lack of other hotel options!

  • Wait until the renovation is over

    by Christian S on 2018-04-11 06:17 am

    The whole ranch is currently undergoing rennovation. So if you can avoid going there, don't. The diner is an absolute joke, try to get a table at the Inn. Have been there for about 4 times, absolutely worst experience this time. Very unfriendly hotel-staff. You don't feel valued as a customer at all - this is what happens when you lack alternatives. Hope they prove me wrong once the renovation is over when I come back next time, because Death Valley is just amazing!
