We stayed at the Ranch Resort for 3 nights. I have stayed in many national parks in the west. The Ranch Resort is less rustic than many other national park lodges. We stayed in a deluxe room facing the pool. The room was fairly large and modern with flat screen TV and a redone bathroom. Compared to cabins or lodges at Zion, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, etc, you don't get the national park "feel" in the room. However, the rooms were nice and clean. The pool was large and crystal clear - I have seen people say it is kept at 84 degrees but I was cold in the pool at night (maybe it feels warmer in the sun).
We one dinner at the restaurant - it was fine but certainly nothing special. They push the chocolate cake as house made - it sucked. For breakfast we had the buffet each day. Again, fine but nothing special. We had pizza for dinner twice from the salon. It was pretty good pizza. Additionally, we had the brunch at the Inn on Sunday. The meat at the carving station was dry and inedible. French Toast was spectacular, omelette was fine with many choices. Meals were all pretty expensive but it's like that in all the parks. Just wait until you have to buy gas.
Overall, not a lot of choices of places to stay at Death Valley, the Ranch was good and there are lots of things to do on the grounds.
