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

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
