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

This is a nice option if you want an inexpensive option near Death Valley, but outside the park. We spent a night here and were happy with the accommodations. It's an old motel, with plenty of wear, but the room was clean and everything worked fine, including WiFi. We got a good nights rest and would stay there again.

We spent two nights here while visiting Death Valley and were quite happy. We had quite a large room and it was clean and convenient. It was exactly what we needed after a day of hiking in the park. We ate at Denny's which is in a casino and is slightly smoky. However, the staff are very nice and the... More

Knowing full well the cost of accomodations in Death Valley, we decided it was in our best interest to save some money at this point of our parks tour and stayed in Beatty. Coming from the west this is the first motel you come to, which is off of the busy truck corridor further to the east where the other... More

Of the six lodgings in Beatty, El Portal is at the quiet end of town. No trucks pass by. They stay on highway 95, driving past the other lodgings. No casino, so people not out being loud around the property. I, a single woman, comfortably walked to the other end of town past restaurants, lodging, casinos. Only a 15 minute... More

A rustic place to stay, nearest to Death Valley. The place is old, but well taken care of. The hot water never got really hot, just warm. Otherwise it was a suitable place to stay for the price. It was winter, the summer temperature would most likely make the water hotter, or more comfortable to shower in. Nice for the... More

No complaints here. Stayed here during an epic trade show road trip across the US. Great value, the rooms were clean, and the staff was nice. If I pass through Beatty, NV again, I'll be sure to stay here.

This hotel is older, but is kept up well, the parking areas, sidewalks and buildings are clean and freshly painted. Can't beat the rate of $50.. The clerk is such a nice man, he appears to be a one man show; check in, cleaning, repair ... He was busy busy, but greeted us both times we came back to the... More
