After driving by for many years, I finally got the courage to stay the night.. and I'M GLAD I DID!!. I have seen the documentary about Marta called "Amargosa", So I kinda knew what I was in for. Yes, the place is old and run-down - BUT, the room was clean (#22) and had incredible hand-painted murals on the walls... More

My advice: Call ahead! If you are considering a stay at the Amargosa, and you're in need of special services (like a refrigerator for medications, or a special diet from the cafe), let the staff know! Again, I have not been to the Amargosa for quite a few years, but know this: the DESERT location is ISOLATED, and the buildings/rooms,... More

We arrived at 16.15 hours in the afternoon, check in is from 3 p.m. There was no one there! Only an envelope with our name on it and a key of room 20...... After searching the private propertie a guy Jessy who lives with the 90 year old owner Martha, showed up. He told us no one could come because... More

It cannot be denied that the hotel is old, and the decoration not suited to all tastes. But to be fair, it is still pretty decent. We did not suffer from smell or noise described in other reviews. The room was clean, maybe be not shiny perfect clean, but good enough (and cleanliness IS important to me). Main thing is,... More

I have stayed at the hotel on two occasions and am sad to leave each time I go. I discovered Martha online and went out last year to see her glorious creation. I came back again this year and was just as delighted as I was the first time. You must see the opera house and spend time speaking to... More

Friendly staff, very clean, the art and history are amazing. It is old and needs repairs but obviously people are taking care of it and trying. You must stop here, it's a beautiful place stoped in time.

We were attracted by the spot and the history behind it. It was a disappointment to discover that the beauty of this place is kept in the past. Looking at the video of mrs Martha Becket it came into our minds that this lady, with all the respect that she deserves, doesn't realize that people come here to have a... More

Stayed here only because everything in Death Valley was booked and some of the reviews were positive. What a mistake! Checked in late when there was no alternative. The room was rustic and at first the smell did not seem so bad. But after checking in, it hit us - a smell that seemed to be a combination of sewage,... More

Wow...such a dirty place... Hotel is old. Not clean. Terrible smell ( sewer, mold under carpets, old mattresses?). It is to late to fix this place. Time for improvements had to be done a long time ago and owners just going with the flow now.
