While on a southwestern road trip we spent a night inside of Death Valley National Park California. There is a town called Furnace Creek that has an old school ranch motel and luxury resort. We stayed in the ranch as the children were with us but it was really nice and we had a lot of fun. The entire town of furnace creek is basically the size of a campground so we were able to walk from our room to the huge natural spring fed pool and to the couple of restaurants and general store as they were very close. The rooms were simple but clean and we would definitely stay at the Furnace Creek Ranch again, though I recommend the resort part if you don't have children with you.
