  • The Borax Museum is a beautiful Museum, in which one learns not only much about borax, but feels a bit like in the "Wild West". Worth seeing.

  • Interesting short walk to see the remains of borax mining & mule train, but not enough info about borax on the signs. there's more info about this at Zabriskie Point, surprisingly.  more »
  • It's ok. There's a bunch of equipment with some information. It's not a highlight but at least it is free.  more »

  • Visiting Furnace Creek Ranch is like stepping back in time when accommodations were simple and the service was exceptional. We stay in the historic cabins every year for the Death Valley '49er Encampment event that has been held at the beginning of November since 1949. The staff is always so pleasant and friendly, in fact some have become friends that remember us from the previous years. For example, Ivan who works in the 49er Cafe is always someone who greets us warmly. There is talk about a remodel that will start shortly and I hope it improves the aging facilities but that we will still see our friends who work there during the construction and afterwards.
  • Okay, its a bit pricey but they are pretty much all there is in that part of the desert. We had a great time and were able to take our dogs. They have a pool that is amazing and once you go into the ranch they are completely self sufficient with restaurants, museums, stores and shops. The cabins do come with air conditioning and the showers are very nice and well kept!
  • Well-provisioned place for the middle of Death Valley. Room basically good, although some minor maintenence items needed attending (long-running toilet). Very clean. Surprised there was a tv, even though that's not why we're here. Available food somewhat mixed. Dinner last night was first rate, comparable to big city better dining. Breakfast was mediocre, with none of the care that went into dinner. Overall, a pleasant surprise experience, especially in light of the locale.
  • One of the only places to get Service on your phone. Good quick stop in between locations in Death Valley. Definitely a nice place to stop by
  • The hotel is really nice and the room is actually really clean. Beds are comfortable. Standard rooms have a fridge and coffee pot. Unlike most hotels, the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are amazing. The pool is heated. There are many recreational sports on the property that are free. Nearby restaurants are pricey, but really worth it. Great place!!
