Beaty is by far the strangest place I have ever visited. I wanted to see the real America on our tour and boy did I get it here. The majority of people here I can't imagine have left the town let alone the country. We were fortunate enough to be driving a Mercedes rental car, and not a single person... More

Found El Portal thru Tripadvisor. Reviews helped with decision. Clean and spacious; friendly staff; room included microwave, wi-fi, and mini fridge. Not the place to stay if you're looking for luxury, but a nice hotel. Restaurants located nearby, on Main St, (go thru the one flashing stop light in town). Hotel provided a notebook of helpful information on the area.

Ok I wont mince my words and being as straightforward as I can, I must confess that I think I left my heart back in Beatty (or should I call it Bea(ut)ty?), Nevada. El Portal Motel was our spot of stay. We had a five star service, in a scenic motel, very clean, very quiet and very cozy. Run by... More

Staying inside Death Valley isn't cheap, so we decided on the El Portal Motel in Beatty, NV. It's a short drive to the park, and we had 3 people with us and were able to get a room with 3 beds. Beatty is a very small town with very few restaurants to choose from. We ate at the fast food... More

A reasonably Priced hotel with large Clean rooms is what you will find here The owners are Friendly and full of local information. Grab a drink and sit by the pool in the evening and enjoy the fresh air and good company. Beatty is a town in the middle it's a nice stopping point on your way to Tahoe or... More

We rolled through Death Valley and reached the Portal around 4PM on July 1, 2014. "Swimming pool" was my 2nd sigh of relief. We stayed the one night and met 3rd generation owner Aaron and his awesome family. Highly recommended for location, price, comfort, cleanliness, and hospitality.

This is an older motel, but a classic with very spacious rooms that are very clean and accommodating. The rooms have all the ammenities, to include free wi-fi. While it may be older, every thing was in working order and served the purpose. The staff are nice and helpful. I give it a very good rating because it is ideal... More

The original motel is very old an not used. Do not be discouraged as you will stay in a more modern addition. This is the best value near Death Valley. The owners are nice and the rooms are acceptable, clean and basic. Take their advice for restaurants.

Pulling up to the motel & entering the 'lobby' we were a bit doubtful of our choice. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room - Lighting is dim and the room itself is dark. It is also very large. The beds were very comfortable, linens were nice, and even the pillows were good. Everything worked, even though many... More
