  • "Museum in a former home of pioneers,...". The House exists, but the Museum is reduced to some photographs inside. The space is currently converted to shop. On the other hand gear are always exposed in court.

  • The price was affordable and I loved the rooms and other amenities that they offer. The walls were a wee bit thin so when a loud neighboring room doesn't keep it reasonably quiet you will hear it. I really enjoyed the food that their restaurants offered and loved the fact that I could look straight up at the desert night stars from a few feet outside of my room. I will be staying here again when I visit Death Valley again as it was a lovely place to come back to after a long day of hiking and exploring.
  • Was a great spot for a quick stop to Death Valley. The food at the restaurant were not the best choices-basically $20 for a frozen pizza, but the servers were friendly and accommodating. Our room was nice and cold to help us cool down from the heat of the park.
  • Landscapes are amazing. $25 for the buffet style dinner is 20 to much, plus tax....! Local store charging extremely high prices for cheap products else where. $7 for an egg sandwich, $4.98 for a loaf of bread , $3 for a small bottle of coke, etc, I appreciate that everything has to be brought in from afar, but really, captive audience, charges can be whatever they like. However, the positives outweigh the negatives. The valley is amazing, the ranch is really nice, rooms are basic, clean and comfortable.
  • During our visit to Death Valley we purchased postcards to send to friends and family. Due to previous visits, we knew Furnace Creek Ranch had a post office. Furnace Creek Ranch is a cute little frontier town full of authentic buildings, right down to the clever street signs. It has a general store, saloon, restaurants, motel rooms, a park and yes, a post office. They are filled with friendly and energetic persons that are more than willing to help all who enter their place. It is an easy decision to return to this "Ranch" in the future.
  • Great location for an overnight stay when touring through Death Valley. The rooms are clean and spacious. If you have a room with a balcony you will have a great view of the surrounding mountain ranges - perfect for sunrise and sunset. There are 3 restaurant options on site and a further 2 in the sister hotel about a mile away. The onsite convenience store has a very good selection and reasonably priced.

Where to stay in Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park provides numerous developed campgrounds where you can pitch a tent. Some of these are free, and some are open year-round, while others only offer camping in the cooler, non-summer months. There are a few privately owned and operated lodges and inns in the park, most of which feature rustic accommodations. With its upscale lodging, the Furnace Creek Inn stands as an exception. The town of Beatty, on the Nevada side of the park, offers a few basic inns and motels and a couple of casinos. On the California side, Randsburg sits farther away from the park's popular Furnace Creek area, but the town offers numerous economy motels and views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
