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!

This was our first trip to Death Valley, Ca and the Ranch at Death Valley, it is considered off season now but we were very happy with our stay. If you are expecting a Marriott or Hilton type of experience you are going to be disappointed, having said that the rooms are very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are large, the A/C works well and our room had a ceiling fan, we traveled with a small fan which also helped given the outside temperature never fell below 100 degrees. While things had begun to open up there were still Covid protocols in place, it was clean and it wasn't busy so social distancing wasn't an issue. On the downside they have you captured so everything is expensive, our first night there we had dinner on property, one entrée for the two of us as well as an appraiser and beer for $82.00, that includes a 15% tip. The food was delicious but not $82.00 delicious. The staff were exceptional, friendly outgoing and engaging. On our way out we stopped by the General Store, what an amazing staff and selections of "stuff" (souvenirs), again not cheap but an excellent assortment to select from. As a side note the next morning we stopped in for coffee, two medium coffees would have been $10.00 so we passed, there are coffeemakers in the rooms. We didn't need fuel and at $6.00 gallon we are happy we didn't but a little secret is Beatty, NV. about 40 minutes away is Beatty. Gas is less than $4.00 gallon and a variety of small decent restaurants. Take the time to visit Beatty, gas up and get some food to take back to The Ranch at Death Valley. Overall a great stay, bring a fan for your room and if you visit in the summer bring lots of water, some food and be amazed by everything you see.
