Easy access to Death Valley at half the price. Just spend 4 nights here while photographing the wildflowers in the park. This place, a national historical site, is for the adventurous who seek out the little known history of an area. The history and artistry is breathtaking. The ambience and people make it quaint and personal. They are striving to... More

My wife and I love to stay at unusual, eclectic or historic places. Amargosa Opera House isn't. As much as I appreciate people who want to preserve history there is a time to give up and this place is one. After checking in we found that we had to drive 27 miles to Pahrump to get dinner where there was... More

we spent the night at the amargosa opera house hotel while on a trip to death valley national park. the location is ideal for a park visit --- 28 miles from the main visitor center, with a few stops in the park on the way. the front desk clerk is a very kind older man who seems to be genuinely...

Just came back from visiting the wonderful Death Valley Junction Amargosa Opera House. What an amazing place it is. Marta Becket's history and her dedication to the Opera House and Hotel are incredibly fascinating and well worth the visit. The kind gentlemen that takes you on the tour is colorful, delightful and an artist himself. With his dedication among the... More

We recently stayed at the Amargosa Hotel in Death Valley Junction, CA. The Amargosa Opera House and Hotel are well worth the trip if you are adventurous, and like the unexpected and unusual. The site is a turn-of-the-century, Borax Company mining town just outside of Death Valley. The opera house hosts three performances a week by solo ballerina, Jenna McClintock.... More

My wife Jessica and I recently stayed at the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel over the 2015 Valentine's Day weekend. I have to say this is probably the most unique hotel in the entire western United States. The ambiance was amazing, the staff friendly, courteous, and competent, and the history of the surrounding area utterly fascinating. Not to mention how... More

You have to have an unusual set of circumstances to want to spend the night in the desert ghost town of Amargosa. Perhaps you're here just because you are an adventurer? Perhaps you're just finding this is the point wise to stop for the day. This is Americana at it's finest. It's rich in history, and as you look around... More

This was an interesting find. It is manned by a local who has a plethora if information about the area. You enter through a small lobby which is furnished with period furniture and other period pieces. There two very small museums each housing men's and women's period clothing. There is a small gift shop offering souvenirs and a collection of... More

I find it hard to believe anyone gave this hotel a favorable review. As soon as we got out of the car out front we were hit by a sewage-y smell. This smell permeated the entire hotel. The carpet down the hallway was stained and cut, the toilet barely flushed, the decor may have been an attempt at "quaint" but... More
