Over Ranch at Furnace Creek
Kleurrijke rotspartijen worden afgewisseld door enkele afgelegen groene oases, terwijl de lucht in de zomermaanden trilt van de hitte in Death Valley, een desolate, maar vooral mooie en imponerende woestijnvallei. Midden in de vallei ligt de Furnace Creek Ranch. De kamers hier zijn comfortabel ingericht en beschikken over airco en een badkamer met bad/douche. De accommodatie beschikt over diverse faciliteiten, waaronder een zwembad, tennisbaan, een speeltuin, enkele restaurants en een 18-holes golfcourse. U kunt tevens (tegen betaling) paardrijden. Aangezien er niet veel accommodaties in Death Valley zijn is de Furnace Creek Ranch snel volgeboekt, wees er dus vroeg bij!

"This is the best there is in Death Valley"
This is a review of the Furnace Creek Inn, not the Ranch. It is expensive (like everything else in DV; but it is the ONLY upscale accommodations there, as far as I could see or learn. But I found it to be very comfortable. At the restaurants, the foods was good. But be sure to make reservations for dinner as soon as possible - even before arrival. On arrival time at 4 PM, I found the only possible seating was the last. The Steakhouse at the Ranch is the alternative and it is an acceptable alternative.
"We stayed at the ranch"
Nice room looking out on the golf course. Clean, pleasant and comfortable. There was a patio outside the room that afforded us sunset views with a glass of wine. This resort is located in the heart of Death Valley making it easy to explore this National Treasure.
The cabins are old but clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurants is very good. They serve large portions and often my wife and I could easily split an entrÃ©e. Yes we recommend spending a couple of days here.
"Ranch not Inn"
It is important to understand that there are two separate places in Furnace Creek, about a mile apart and both run by the same outfit. The Ranch is a regular hotel spread out in several buildings, while the Inn is a more upscale resort a mile further south on CA190. We stayed at the Ranch. We had just spent some time in Stovepipe Wells, so were able to compare the two facilities. As expected, the price for this lodging is about double what it would be for comparable lodging outside a park, but not unreasonable given the location (we've paid a lot more for less in other parks). The Furnace Creek Ranch beds are more comfortable (and no noisy bedsprings). The rooms have a very nice balcony, where we enjoyed a couple picnic style meals. The room was spacious and quiet enough; everything was adequate if unremarkable. There were two minor annoyances: drains (sink & shower) back up immediately, as if the drains are clogged; and the towel bar by the sink is located down in front of the sink near the floor, so it is very difficult to keep the towel off the floor - very strange arrangement, given that there was plenty of room to put a towel rack on the wall to either side of the sink. Overall, no problem recommending
"Good review of the Ranch, not the Inn"
Make sure you know which property you are looking at, because Inn and the Ranch are definitely two different experiences. The Inn is upmarket. The Ranch is more casual, with motor inn style rooms, some more casual restaurant options and a large souvenir shop. We chose the Ranch mostly on cost, being a family of 5. We took two rooms which were comfortable but average hotel rooms. Its a big place but still you can walk from the rooms to the restaurants in 5 minutes. Check-in was busy and took a while, but otherwise no complaints. I'll review the restaurant separately. There are three options - a upmarket, a sports bar and a diner. We are dinner and breakfast at the diner and really enjoyed it. If it was just my wife and I, we'd stay at the Inn, but for a family the Ranch is the pick.
