After a long drive we were exhausted and just wanted to eat and sleep. The lady at the front desk was lovely and provided us with some great information about death valley and times to visit. The hotel had great air conditioning, WiFi and a very comfortable bed. The room was nice and clean, there was heaps of information about... More

If you have to stop off in Beatty, Nv this is a basic clean reasonably priced location to use. Like the rest of the town you want to check in before 7 pm because the office closes but the counter staff is very accommodating and friendly. Do Not take their advice on where to eat though. We did, unfortunately and... More

Great location to explore Death Valley without paying the big in park accommodation fees. Clean, quiet, reasonably priced, minutes from the park gates but looks like it hasn't been redecorated for awhile. Located in a nice little town with lots of restaraunts to chose from and one casino.

Nice place to lay your head while passing through Beatty. The young lady at the front desk when we checked in was very friendly and informative. Her family owns the hotel. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and nice showers. She did recommend a great Mexican place for dinner, just down the road. If passing by here again, I would... More

We were passing through and just needed a bed for the night. We had a comfortable room and very friendly management and staff who gave us good travel and tourist information. If you are passing through I highly recommend staying at el portal there are also a few little places around to eat and a museum, ghost town to go... More

Pros: Super nice and extremely helpful owners, great book provided in rooms with most everything you could possibly need to know about the town & Death Valley NP, quiet, good location, comfy bed, huge room Cons: No internal security lock (however a chair wedges well against the door) Note: the rooms in the single level building have a nice size...

First of all, the owner is a third generation owner, so they have a life investment in this place. The owner actually did me a big favor by securing the room for me. I had thought I had made a reservation for 4 days but I goofed and I didn't follow all the way through. My bad. And during one... More

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
