We were a little apprehensive about this place as it comes 6th out of 6 places to stay in Beatty. True things are a little bit rattly and there is a musty smell but everything works and what it lacks in luxury is more than made up in quirky charm. The blankets are under the sheets.. very strange.. but it... More

We stayed at the Atomic Inn last night. After reading all reviews I knew I would either love it or hate it. Well, we all loved it - the 50s vibe, the green aliens, the green color, the oleanders and trees lining up and shading the rows of rooms. The room itself - we got two double beds, that was... More

I usually stay at the El Portal if I go to Beatty on my days off from work in Death Valley, but this time it was unavailable so I tried the Atomic Inn for a change. I’ve passed it countless times and been amused by the eccentric décor, with an extraterrestrial guarding the entrance, googie architectural touches on the front... More

Always a great stay when you want to cross Death Valley: The Atomic Inn in Beatty! What used to be the quarters for the workers who worked at the construction of AREA51 has been transformed into a theme motel of high quality. Although the theme hasn't really been pulled through in the interior of the rooms, it still is comfortable,... More

They upgraded us to #1 and it was nice enough for the price. Quiet. Good bed. Pet friendly! Burros walk the streets. Aliens in the yard for photo props. Simple breakfast available. Centrally located yet off the main drag.

Seems to be a lot of mixed reviews for this place but our stay was fine. The room was a good sizeand clean and the bed was comfortable. Didnt hear anything from nearby rooms. I think the hotel was excellent value. Beatty is a nice little town with several bars and diners to enjoy the evening in. Lots of friendly... More

We stayed here as an alternative to the high prices and hot camp sites in Death Valley park. What a great decision! Clean rooms. Hot water. Air conditioning all at great prices. Not only is the inn great but the town is has some great places to eat and rhyodite ghost town is only 10 mins drive away. If you... More

This is an old-fashion inn. The front desk lady was nice. The only odd thing was there was no sheet under the blanket (as picture shows). After complaining to front desk, they said this was their "summer setting". Never heard of that and I don't think they did wash the blanket like towels after each use! Anyway, the lady brought...

Avoid if possible, specially in winter! We got there a super cold winter night and our room had no heating, it was freezing! We asked the reception and after a while they brought a tiny electric heater that was not helping at all. So we had to ask the reception again an hour later and they brought another which blew...

This place was nasty...dirty...wasn't even vacuumed. Long hairs in the shower. None of the linens were the same and some so thin and stained...no soap, shampoo etc...Cigarette burns on the shower and the floor. Only good thing is that it was quiet and the lady at the desk was friendly. Sign said flat screen TV's but not in our room.... More
