We stayed at Furnace Creek Ranch for 2 days in early spring. Room was very clean and average size for a motel room. Cafe and restaurant both had good food and decent service. Handy store right by cafe and good selection of snacks and souvenirs. I would stay here again. High temperatures and wind/sand storms can make for a miserable... More

We stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch in April. It's comparable to other National Park lodging, which is rarely upscale, and often quite rustic. Yes, you might consider it overpriced given that the motel rooms are what you would normally pay less than $100 for. But you don't have much choice in Death Valley unless you want to stay at...

My spouse and I stayed 2 nights at the Furnace Creek Ranch. I booked through the Xterra property management phone line and when I asked polite questions to determine the best room fit for us within the Ranch property, the reservationist became a little bit condescending and annoyed. We paid $180.00 per night for our room. Having traveled extensively while... More

On the positive, it's in the middle of Death Valley so if you want to do the touristy things such as Dante's View at dawn (and do, it's awesome), it's an ideal place. It's expensive for the quality of accommodation offered (small, tired rooms) but there was nothing fundamentally wrong. Niggles included old, hence noisy A/C which is essential when... More

With very limited choice in the Death Valley we decided to go for the most convenient location in the park and spent 2 nights at Furnace Creek Ranch mid May. The cabins at 120$ a night are a true desaster. I don't mind a basic accomodation, but this one not only needs lots of renovation, but also was extremely dirty.... More

A very interesting place to stay in Death Valley NP. $350 doesn't buy you much in Calif. Even less within the confines of the Park. Little choice, not only of places to sleep, but also places to eat! Our room was very quaint (old and quaint!) fairly well maintained, however checking-in was a chore. The well-hidden resort entrance made a... More

We stayed here for one night mid April as part of a larger trip. The loction is the best thing about the place - close to lots of the spectacular Death Valley sights. The lodge itself has good facilities - a large park (our room looked out over this) with shady trees and grass for kids to kick a ball... More

The resturants, roms and grounds were a pleasure. The ranch looks like a paradise . The pool is heaven. The overall experience would have been fantastic if not for the inept and impolite stable/horse staff. I inquired, by calling the stable, about a scheduled evening wagon ride which is advertised on the property. The person at the stable laughed and... More

We stayed at the ranch for one night in April 2007, having already been to the Inn and found out it was $300 for what looked like a pretty tired hotel. We paid $200 for a very basic motel room. This was by far the most expensive night on out trip, far more than the 4 star hotels we stayed... More

Furnace Creek is a 72 mile drive up Death Valley from Shoshone and pretty much the only bit of green in the whole valley. Guests can choose between the Inn, the Ranch, or pitch a tent in the campsite. The Inn is set away from the main complex and the most expensive option of the three. We stayed in a... More
