Very nice hotel and convenient to the park activities. Personnel in the restaurant ie bar and take out persons are not friendly. Charge us resort fees and yet half are not available

The Inn and The ranch are the only property closest to everything in DVNP except for the Mesquite Dunes. The property is great. In the unit that we stayed in The Ranch, the balcony had all the carpet ripped with splinters all over and I had to spend some time getting a few out of my feet. Food is expensive in the property, and $9 for a date shake for a small-sized up is outrageous. Furnace Creek is not that remote that anyone would charge such exorbitant prices. Convenience is what you pay for.

Nice location within park. Limited options for food.

We stayed at the Ranch at Death Valley, late October, 2020. It is a clean, well-located, reasonably affordable (for a remote National Park) establishment. We found the staff friendly, helpful, and courteous. Accommodations: Visitors seeking true luxury won’t find them at the Ranch. That is because most of the guest accommodations at The Ranch date to the late 1930’s and 1940’s; no surprise, then, that they are showing the effects of age. Even so, our room was clean and relatively comfortable. Location and Amenities: The Ranch offers a primo location for visiting many of the parks most famous sites (Examples: Zabriskie Point is about 7 miles away; Badwater Basin is about 17 miles away). The Ranch offers some nice guest amenities: a commodious spring-fed pool, tennis court, basketball court, shuffle board court. When to visit: The weather in late October was pleasant—rarely above the mid 80s F. Guests seeking peace and quiet should consider booking during the week to avoid the influx of weekenders. Prices: Visitors should expect high prices due to the remoteness of the location. Food prices are high (example: lowest priced dinner entree at the restaurant, $34.00; a bottle of decent wine available at Safeway for $18 will run $80 to $90). Slightly lower prices are available at The Ranch’s General Store (ready-made sandwiches, etc.). Overall Recommendation: Price-conscious visitors (like we are) should find The Ranch a clean, friendly, and overall, satisfactory, get-away.

The property had a great ambience to it. However, the rooms could have been cleaner. The food prices are on the higher side but the food was great. The staff was AMAZING and we truly enjoyed our time.

Nice resort. Was disappointed in our room being so far from the main area especially with the few people staying here.

Room was very nice. Beds very comfortable. Refrigerator in Room. Staff was very pleasant.

This truly was an oasis in the middle of the desert! The property was lovely as was Death Valley!

They charge a $22 resort fee. The pool is in terrible condition. Tile is falling off the edges in many areas, the handles to get out of the pool are falling apart, ripped, the doors and wood around the restroom and building is falling apart. The US flag was torn to shreads. This is NOT a resort that should be charing an extra fee.

Amazing location. Near many desired sites. Rooms were adequate. Our first room had a bad odor. They immediately changed our room. They were very friendly. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was adequate. Limited dining due to COVID and they made it work. Store had plenty. Gas and ice at property. Beautiful scenery. Pool was AMAZING and spring fed - 85 degrees. Deep for little kids - bring floatie a for little ones. My 7 & 8 Year old were swimming laps by the time we left.

Great place to stay. Convenient. Has a great General store, restaurant and ice cream place. Rooms are clean, spacious, etc. Safe and easy to get around.

Holy hot. Nice place. Cool little outdoor old west 'museum'. Awesome pool! One of the nicest places in Death Valley:)

large rooms, friendly staffs. A bit far from the center of activities. Address is a confusing.

The room was lovely and clean. And it was convenient to stay in the park. But when I pay over $250 a night I don’t expect leftover food in the fridge from the previous resident. The fire alarm went on for over 3 min in the morning. The alarm was set for 6am. I expect that to be reset by housekeeping not by me. As we walked out in the morning, the corridor was a disaster zone with the ceiling being ripped out. Unacceptable. I hv been on a road trip and have been staying in cheaper hotels with better service and amenities.
