Where the heck do i begin? From the cold and unwelcoming counter staff woman, to the freezing cold rooms, to the completely run down building and lack of any upkeep, to the lack of any breakfast apart from coffee, to the awful heater in the sitting area to, well EVERYTHING you can mention. There is a terrible lack of effort... More

Characterful does not mean crumbling bedroom walls, no electric sockets working, filthy conditions, rude manageress, expensive prices, no breakfast just coffee, freezing cold bed and a total lack of any maintenance. Total slum. Fact.

My wife and I have not stayed overnight at this hotel (yet), but I would like to weigh in on some of the negative comments we read about the Amargosa Hotel. We were on the grounds and witnessed the scene of the most recent negative review. It’s truly unfortunate for those potential guests that they couldn't put aside their pettiness... More

This hotel in Death Valley Junction is about 90 miles from Las Vegas on the way to Death Valley. This hotel has a parking lot where one can stop and stretch, and take a short break before driving another 1/2 hour to 45 minutes into Death Valley National Park. However, be warned that you should break your own food and... More

Buyer beware! This run down hotel is nothing like the photo or description on the web page. As we drove up to the complex, I almost started crying.....rundown, junk parts lying around, horrible doors,windows, outside tables.....then we went to our room. No way were we staying there. The old velour bed linens smelled, there was an old space heater on... More

Those rundown junk parts that are describe are antique pieces of equipment from the original Mining town and T & T Railroad. Yes, we do have outside tables for our guests or visitors to have a place to sit and talk enjoy the peace, quite and fresh air. We do not have or advertise TV, we do have WiFi, Coffee,... More

Love this place. Cute, comfortable, no-frills rooms, TONS of character and history. Attached to the beautiful Amargosa Opera House, a national treasure with floor to ceiling paintings by Marta Becket.

Stayed 2 nights, different style of hotel, value for money, great base for visits to Death Valley and ash meadow Only down side is that nearest food is 7 miles away, the staff are friendly, nice cat, no television, kids whined about that, but it was not a major issue

We drove by on our way to Death Valley and decided to stop. This place must have been fabulous in it's day. Marta Becket was the ballerina that preformed and painted the beautiful interior walls of the theatre. I wish we could have watched the preformance that was scheduled that night but we only planned for a day trip. I... More

My brother and I spent Thanksgiving night at Amargosa opera house. It is a quaint lodging space with 18 rooms a cute lobby with a fireplace and a dining room. The cool thing is that you can take a tour of the opera house and learn about the history of the place which is pretty amazing. We knew going in... More

I have stayed here twice in the past when Marta Beckett was performing at the Amargosa Opera House. It was a little south of quaint even then. She is no longer performing, nor is the Hotel. It was always cheap but iffy. I would contribute to a crowdsorcing to rehabilitate it but cannot recommend it now. You will be surprised... More
