#3 of 4 hotels in Death Valley National Park
The Ranch at Death Valley, situated in Death Valley National Park, is just 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada and 275 miles northeast of Los Angeles, California. The Ranch at Death Valley offers accommodations in a casual, family-like setting — the perfect complement to the classic elegance of the Inn at Death Valley. As you wander around the expansive grounds, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to when this site was established as a working ranch. Yet, you’ll enjoy the amenities of modern civilization, like quiet, clean rooms, a spring-fed swimming pool, large grass lawns, sports courts, a children’s playground and the National Park Service Visitor’s Center – which is just a stone’s throw away. So is the 18-hole golf course – the lowest elevation course in the world – and Golf Pro Shop. The Ranch at Death Valley is the ideal place to stay when visiting Death Valley National Park.

I’ve visited this property many times over the past decade or so, and at different seasons of the year. The owners rebranded it from the Inn at Furnace Creek to The Oasis at Death Valley. Along with the rebranding, they refreshed the rooms and remodeled/rebuilt the dining areas, built a new reception building, and created a palm-lined entry boulevard. These improvements have turned the property from something so-so to something special. More building is going on, including a complete replacement of some long-in-the-tooth cabins. I look forward to visiting again when everything is finished. The plans for the cabin replacements that I saw in the reception area looked quite interesting. On this visit, I had a motel room with a patio that opened to a lawn area, and just across from the spring-fed swimming pool. Although it was a bit too hot to sit on the patio (118 degrees), the view was lovely and especially pleasant from the comfort of my air-conditioned room. The room was clean, bed comfortable, and shower the perfect temperature. When you go to Death Valley at this time of year, don’t expect cold water from the cold water faucet. Be prepared to use the refrigerate to chill water for drinking. Also, keep in mind that summer is off-season and best for on-road car touring in the early morning and late evening. The Oasis offers a pleasant spot for sheltering during the day from the heat. There is a golf course. At this time of year rates are about $35 for 18 holes, and that includes a golf cart. I don’t play golf, and I didn’t manage to walk over to the course, but I couldn’t imagine anyone swinging a club in the heat I experienced!

Our room was on the second floor. There is no elevator so you must carry your bags up stairs. The room was clean when we arrived. There was a refrigerator and small coffee maker in the room. There was a wifi box on the ceiling that had a very annoying green blinking light. We arrived at night and the drive from the front desk to the room was a bit confusing. Otherwise a pleasant place to stay.

The most important thing to know when you're considering a trip here is that the delta between the website and reality is quite large. The website looks great, but the actual hotel is really more of a glorified motel. The rooms are bare bones. The pool is in need of a renovation. The restaurant - Last Kind Word Saloon - has in an incredible look, but the food tastes like it comes from a buffet somewhere. We checked in, and immediately tried to just get our money back and leave. That didn't prove to be in the cards, so after our visit I emailed the hotel to try to have a conversation about the quality of our stay. Never heard back. Which wasn't terribly surprising. I'd just go into this stay eyes wide open - you're staying there for the location, and everything else will underwhelm. If you're not too excited about the property then you likely won't be too disappointed. But I wouldn't recommend a visit.

Such an amazing experience. After being in the car from Joshua Tree to Death Valley we were hit and tired. The pool and the room were so amazing and comfortable. We were able to cook down, get a wonderful dinner and a great nights sleep. One of my favorite parts was the proximity to Zabriskie Point, I was able to get up early in the morning and drive their quickly to catch an amazing sunrise!!!

We stayed 2 nites at The Ranch in mid-May. Check-in was efficient almost to the point of wanting to get me out the door. Had to ask twice for her to explain directions to our building on the map, she went so fast. She gave me an Internet password but when we tried to log in later we found that there were options to pay $4.95/hour or $10.95 for 2 hours. However our understanding was that internet was free so I called the front desk and the lady who answered said…oh yes, you just have to scroll down to the botton and enter another code “oasis”. This felt like a total scam! How many people were not told, the 2nd Code, didn’t call, and just paid the extra money? Room was spartan but OK, beds were fine but the balcony had carpet so worn you could see the plywood underlayment. The refrigerator was cool but not cold and dripped water onto the bottom. Bath wash in the shower was empty. Electrical socket next to the bed came away from the wall when you unplugged from it. Entryways and hallways to the building were dirty, bird poop in the corners; maid would not give me more coffee for the next day - said she didn’t have any. No free breakfasts. Free Coffee was available in the bar in the AM. The gift/convenience store had a limited selection of packaged sandwiches, pasta salads and drinks. The ’snack’ bar, Coffee & Cream, only open Fri,Sat, Sunday. The on site Restaurant The Last Kind Words Saloon, had a limited menu of only 5 “fine” dining options….no burgers or sandwiches. COVID restrictions were still in effect so we ordered at the bar and they would bring to our table- we choose to eat out on the patio which turned out to be a very unpleasant experience. The tables were dirty, some with bird poop. The seat cushions were stained and dirty and the patio floor had not been swept. When our meals arrived they were in cardboard “takeout” containers. Quality of the food was just ok. Suggest bringing some food in your cooler! Grounds were lush and green. Pool area had plenty of towels and water was refreshing, but pool bottom needed some repair. They are in the midst of building out a whole new area…it’s a shame that they can’t do the maintenance on these older units first. We’re not sure how much the COVID restrictions played in the issues that we encountered but as we’ve noted we were certainly disappointed in our stay…especially given the cost. Although our accommodations were not what we’d hope, Death Valley is gorgeous with magnificent rock colors and formations. Truly a natural wonder worth seeing. So book the cheapest room and bring some food!
