          This is a nice place to stay, if you are trying to pinch pennies this is not the place to go. But, one needs to remember this place is in the middle of nowhere and I believe the cost to run a place is expensive. We enjoyed it!

          This is not a fancy resort but it is very adequate and quaint. We stayed in a cottage which had a ceiling fan and an air conditioning unit.

          The room had two double beds, a table and dresser as well as a TV.

          The bathroom was adequate and had a stall shower.

          There was a nice porch with rocking chairs on it and we enjoyed that ---until we saw a scorpion and then we headed inside.

          Huge beautiful pool, beautiful scenery, horseback riding available on site and restaurants and a bar/saloon.

          Een hotel met een ranch gevoel. Het hotel is heeft een centrale lobby en daarnaast diverse hotel gebouwen op eigen terrein. Per gebouw zo'n 20 kamers, uiteraard voorzien van airco. Ruim opgezette kamer met dubbel 2-persoonsbed. Geen ontbijt inbegrepen, wel een buffet te gebruiken in het restaurant.

          This is basically a stop off visit for us. We got here after a long journey, and were welcomed nicely. We had dinner at the 49ers, which was lovely, and service was efficient and friendly. Lots of people we using the pool til late, which look a great idea. The air on in the room was very welcome!

          Golfing experience

          from

          The mid-august golf deal was better than any other that I have ever come across. Yes, it was hot : 92*F teeing off at 6.30am., but the heat was not unpleasant. The paths alongside some of the fairways were in the shade of the many trees. Randy, the professional, couldn't do enough for us - chilled water supply with the cart etc. The golf course itself was excellent (wife and I are 8 and 11 handicap). One of the par 5s was 600yds!., the other had a 200ydsplus carry over one of the lakes! Yes -lots of water and wildlife. A real oasis. There were about six other couples on the course. Millionaire golf or wot! Lovely people working on the 'ranch', good eating and accommodation and the first time we have experienced sunbathing by the pool in 50*C (122*F) . We'd go again.

          Expensive but an experience not to be missed

          from

          Our family stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch overnight in early August. The scenery is spectacular, wonderful views in every direction. The daytime temperature was 124F and it didn't get much cooler at night, so the air conditioning was absolute bliss. Our room overlooked the lawn and the pool. The pool was bizarre. It was HOT, like a bath. Actually, you didn't get cool from being in the pool. You got a slight cooling effect afterwards from letting the hot wind blow over your wet body!!! Very nice pool though, with no chemicals although it was crowded after about 4 pm and I mean very crowded. Plus there was a really annoying family who just HAD to play Touch Football in the pool even though it was standing room only! When a child near me got hit by the ball, we retreated to our nice air conditioned room. The store was great - very good selection. We ate in the restaurant. As reported, its good but expensive - well, the whole place is really. The room isnt worth the price, but the location dictates the charge. If you want to stay there, you have to pay it. We watched the sunset at Zabriskie Point - wonderful colours. There's lots to do and see really but you will do it best from an SUV at this time of year. Ours was a godsend. Would like to go back in the spring and horseride. Recommended.

          Great place for rest and relaxation.

          from

          We stopped off at the Ranch for 1 night on our way from Las Vegas to Yosemite. Great place to recharge your batteries and experience the heat. My son was surprised that even the breeze was hot! Room pleasant with a balcony onto a green lawn. Tennis available and pool very welcome. Shop stocks everything you could want. Diner reasonably priced but restaurant rather expensive for a family of 4. Ranch is a good place to stay for a stop over. Staff friendly. Would recommend.

          Oasis in the Desert

          from

          We have just stayed at Furnace Creek Ranch for the 3rd time, we like it so much. It is a green oasis in scorching, dazzling Death Valley. The room was bright, clean and comfortable and the air conditioning worked well! The pool was pleasantly warm with no chemicals. The food at both of the ranch's restaurants was good and the shop well stocked. Death Valley is very beautiful (if you like desert scenery), especially as seen from Dantes view, with its shimmering salt pan. Although it was too hot (around 116oF) to walk much in the valley, the scenery can be enjoyed from an air-conditioned car and respite from the heat can be found up in the mountains. The temperature at the Ranch at 10 pm was still 110oF! The nearby ghost town of Rhyolite is worth visiting, partly for the views en route. We will return.

          Superb hotel

          from

          After a long drive from Los Angeles via Lone Pine, this hotel is just what you need when you finally get out of the car. As the other reviews say, it is fantastic with a huge lawn area and your own patio and a spring fed and therefore warm pool, just great after your long drive.

          Yes the food is expensive but you can't exactly get a Mcdonalds down the road, although the shop is well stocked if you just want to make do for the night. My only error was to only stay for a night, I should have stayed longer, it was a most relaxing place and the museum there is great for photographs if you like that sort of thing. If you get the chance to go here once in your life, take it you won't regret it.

          'Desert Oasis'

          from

          We have stayed at the furnace creek ranch twice in the last two years and have fully enjoyed both trips. The rooms are clean and spacious and the pool really refreshing in the 127 degree heat. The golf is excellent value and the facilities (restaurants/shops) are great with helpful staff.

          The Furnace Creek Ranch is a great place for families!

          from

          We recently stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch (not to be confused with the Inn) in Death Valley. We had a deluxe room with two double beds. It was very clean and adequately appointed although it was a standard hotel type room. There was a television, small refrigerator, ceiling fan and air conditioning. I most enjoyed the small patio outside our room. The patio looks out onto a grassy area across from the pool, play equipment and a basketball court and we spent most of the evening out there. If you come with your kids, bring a frisbee or other outdoor toys as there is lots of room to play. The pool needs some work, but it was clean. There is a general store on-site as well as two restaurants, one fancier than the other. The four of us ate in the less fancy restaurant and the food was good, although it added up to be somewhat expensive. The restaurant staff treated us very well. The fancier of the two restaurants was out of our price range as a family of four, but the menu was enticing. There is a gas station right next to (but not part of) the Ranch. We would definitely stay there again as they take pride in their facility.

          Loved it--reminded me of "The Shining."

          from

          My boyfriend took me to Death Valley in July 2002. I had never been and was very excited. I booked us a room at the Furnace Creek Inn--it was one of their nicer rooms with a balcony overlooking the trees and lawn. I really loved it. It had a fireplace in the corner, and was very large. The furniture was nice--comfortable, old world, classic. The bathroom was great--old fashioned and all tile. Very nice. The air conditioning worked wonderful, and we had a ceiling fan too. We had a door (with a screen door too) to our veranda, and at midnight we sat out on the veranda in the comfortable wicker chairs and soaked up the atmosphere--even at midnight it was still hot. I loved the hotel. It has a very european feel to it. The hallways reminded me of the movie "The Shining" . . . and I wandered through the various halls feeling like I was in that movie. The pool water is very, very warm. The dining room is very nice, but expensive. We chose instead to eat at the Furnace Creek Ranch dining room--which was much more casual, fun and cheaper! (We had such a great time sitting at the counter talking with our waiter who educated us as to everything to see in Death Valley). I absolutely love Death Valley and will return as soon as we can. The Furnace Creek Inn is truly a wonderful place. I highly recommend that you stay there is visiting Death Valley.

          Historic Inn

          from

          The Furnace Creek Inn is a 1927 hotel that has a wonderful location and classic art deco style. It is similar to the Arizona Biltmore (Frank Lloyd Wright) without the big city (Phoenix). Views are incredible. Highly recommended.

          The Furnace Creek Ranch is a comfortable, family motel nearby.

          Finally, this is a place to be outdoors(horseback riding or hiking). Visit in winter or early spring.

          Hot and sweaty for a week!

          from

          Since I was in sixth grade, my family has driven our RV down to Death Valley. We park in the campground across from Furnace Creek Ranch and spend the week at the pool. Last year however, we were told by Furnace Creek officials that in order to use showers or the pool we would have to stand in line at 5am. So I did. Each morning when I finally would get up to the front to pay my fee, they would say,"sorry, sold out". After four days of this, we realized that you just can't live without a shower in 85 degree heat. So, we packed up and headed for Las Vegas. What stinks about this is that we called ahead of time to be sure that we would understand the policy and be able to follow it. They decided to change the policy after we drove the 2 days it took to get there.
