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!

"review of the ranch"
your choices here are either a room in 2 story buildings, or a "cabin", which aren't actually cabins, just rooms in a single story building, or camping. There are NO kitchenette type of rooms. Pros: people are nice, they have a swimming pool, bocce court, golfcourse. The rooms are clean, no evidence of any critters. The bar is good, we liked the pizza we got there. The store is pretty good for souvenirs and snacks items. cons: beds are hard. facility is run down (not just dated, which would be appropriate, given the setting). Food choices are extremely limited, given that you can't cook your own food unless you are camping. One very expensive dining room, a bar, which was acceptable, (the pizza we got was pretty good), or a cafe, which smelled so bad when we walked in (cleaner? mold?) that we turned around and walked out. Also, when we checked in, we were told that they would "hold $75 a DAY for the number of days we had reserved ABOVE the amount for our reservation, for "any other charges we might charge to our room". We didn't see that on the original reservation... they explained that "that is standard practice", but no one else on our trip did that...One other thing to mention, don't count on posted hours for the attractions (never did catch the museum open when they listed it open). If you want a decent place to stay to visit death valley and don't want to spend to high prices at the inn, tho, this is your place. it is pretty central to everything you might want to visit.
"The Inn at Furnace Creek. Nice place for a quick drink while exploring."
There is a resort, Inn and a ranch here. The resort is the more upmarket one. We just stopped at the Inn for a quick drink before hiking round Golden Canyon then checking out the Mesquite Sand Dunes before leaving the Park to head up towards Yosemite. We sat outside on the attractive patio overlooking the Badlands and had a coffee. There was not a large choice of drinks at the bar but enough for our needs. Overall it was a nice place with great views for a quick pit stop!
"Furnace Creek Ranch - Mediocre to Poor Accommodations, and Over-Priced"
I stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch, not the Resort - the two are dramatically different from one another, and it's somewhat deceptive that they're marketed and listed here on TripAdvisor as if they're the same property. We booked a standard, double queen room. The furnishing are dated and somewhat worn, and the mattresses and pillows were also old and only barely acceptable to sleep on. I expected at least a little bit more from a room that cost approximately $250 per night. We stayed for three nights over the New Year's weekend. The first day, housekeeping never showed up, and after we alerted them to the fact, they only empty our trash can and replenished the coffee maker supplies. The beds were not straightened, no vacuuming done, and the bathroom wasn't touched. The second day, housekeeping did make an attempt to service the room, but again did little more than empty the trash cans (no cleaning whatsoever, that we could tell). Another big disappointment here were the dining options. The Ranch has two main restaurants, a bar, and a general store. We avoided the more expensive steak house, as the prices were much too high ($40 or so for a steak) for what appeared to be a very uninspiring dining option. The less-expensive restaurant had average priced meals with cafeteria-quality food (my chicken was greasy, and looked as if it had been left in the deep fryer too long). The Ranch (and Resort) are both centrally located to many of the popular Death Valley sights which was a plus. Most of the people we interacted with were friendly, though didn't seem very well-trained. We had one meal at the Resort (again, a seperate property from the Ranch) at its fine dining room, and it was very good, albeit more expensive. It's clear that the Resort and Ranch enjoy a monopoly in Death Valley and take advantage of that fact in the poor service (Ranch) at a higher cost than a comparable hotels elsewhere.
"Cabins small and dirty"
We were excited about the location, but were very disappointed with the rooms when we arrived. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The room has no closets or luggage racks with very little room to put suitcases. There is a small table but if people are sitting at it, they block the bathroom door or the room door. That would be tolerable, but the room was not well cleaned and the bathroom was even worse. There was so much dust on the lamp, you could write your name in it. The windows were spotted with dirt so you couldn't really see out. The bathroom had not been deep cleaned in some time, and the shower didn't seem to be cleaned after the last guest as there was still a razor in it and hair on the soap and the shower floor. There is no counter space to put any toiletries, but there is a shelf underneath. There is a blow dryer. The vanity was missing the laminate at the bottom with exposed particle board, the tile was not cleaned with built up dirt in the corners and there were stains on the ceilings. Our coffee pot and clock did not work, but when we reported it to the desk, they replaced them while we were out and they brought additional towels when we asked. Parking is not reserved so someone can park in the spot next to your cabin and you have to park in the common lot. You are limited to eat at 3 restaurants, all of which are pricey for what they serve but the food is not bad at the saloon and the breakfast buffet is good and the best deal at the ranch. The general store however charges up to 4 times the normal price of things ($9 for a pint of Ben and Jerry's) so bring your own snacks, drinks, batteries, etc. You can't be the central location, but we left a day early as it was not by any means a "resort" that we enjoyed hanging out at, but was convenient to sleep in shower between the many fabulous hikes in the park.
"good place to stay in Death Valley"
Very hot pool with lots of people - not refreshing. Very expensive restaurant (but you're in the middle of the desert). Very large pizza's. Rooms are old but ok and fresh enough. Wifi was very unstable. Don't miss the sunsets !
