very old and unmodernised motel, but cheap. Not sure where the lead photo comes from, my room was covered in wood panelling, and you could here the guy burping in the next room, thankfully I had a room at the end of the motel, with only one shared wall. Very good showers and very comfy bed, staff very helpful and... More

On the way back from a road trip over Spring Break, our car broke down and we were stuck in Beatty, NV. We found the El Portal by looking through a pamphlet. Brooke helped us check-in and she was so nice and kind. Her and her husband went out of their way to help us and get us back on... More

Stayed here mid way through a visit to Death Valley national park. Considerably cheaper than staying in the park, Beatty has all you need without fuss, which sums this motel up. Clean, secure and with very helpful staff, who happily talked us through diner and breakfast options (all of which are walkable). No frills, which won't suit everyone, but this... More

Beatty is a hidden gem in the desert. This hotel was very welcoming; we said we had a booking which we had made directly via their website from the UK and they had our room available straight away. For a very small town on the edge of Death Valley, this motel was a fantastic experience and I'm amazed that other... More

It was tough to decide between poor or average for this motel. The rooms are large but very dated and in serious need of updates, the beds were clean and comfortable, the carpet was filthy, the cost was low. The room door had no security whatsoever besides a simple handle lock. No deadbolt or latch. The windows are not secure.... More

The room was fine, a normal motel room I guess, clean. It is a good place to stay for a few days to visit Death Valley. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and gave good advise of where to eat / things to do.

The staff is very welcoming and friendly. For an older hotel in a very small town, it well serves the purpose. Room was big and clean. Unlike the previous review, our bed was soft. Can hear other guests talking (and other things) through the walls, and banging the door to the room (which is hard to open and close.) If... More

Staff was helpful. Room was large and clean, bed was hard. I could hear our neighbor coughing. There was no ice machine or coffee maker. OK for a one-night transit hotel but I would not want to stay longer. We stayed in the "newer" addition behind the hotel - maybe the rooms in the original are quieter.

Stayed here and it was clean, spacious and quiet. Bed's were comfy though the hotel is older, it's a great value! Room had a fridge, coffee pot and plenty of hot water! Breakfast is not served and hotel does not have a restaurant. If you're traveling from Vegas, you can stop at Walmart and pick up supplies for your Breakfast... More

We stayed here on our way from Las Vegas to Death Valley National Park. El Portal is a nice, simple motel. Nothing fancy, it had all we needed. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom had a bathtub with nice shower. Most important, however, we found the room to be very clean. Check-in was friendly and quick and we were asked... More
