The only place left in the area, so we went expecting nothing. This was the suprise of the entire holidays. Just go and experience it yourself. Simple but clean rooms, last remodelling approx 50's-60's. And please let it stay this way. 4ever! IF you want history that you can actually live in yourself. Don't wait. Just GO.

The Amargosa Hotel and Opera House has amazing character and charm. It is not a 4 star hotel, it is a piece of history and should be enjoyed as such. The painted murals in the Opera House which cover all of the walls (and ceiling as well), are breathtaking, especially when you consider one woman did it all herself with... More

Do you buy local? Are concerned with helping people more than helping corporations? If you are this type of person, Amargosa Opera House is the place to go when visiting Death Valley. As a hotel, you have seen better things for sure. But hey, they are fixing it, and they count on your donations for it. As a experience, it... More

I had heard about this hotel and opera house from trusted friends who knew I would "get it". It's a magical place started by a creative soul who found her paradise and makes it available to other curious and creative people. There is a small, really great crew running the place who are dedicated to making the hotel as special... More

If you are the kind that does not judge a book by its cover, come on in. I had passed this little gem countless times. I thought it was something where dead people came out to haunt stranded tourist. Wow, was I wrong. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. Let Gregory take you back in time as he recounts... More

How many hotels can you find that are part of a complex that features a gem of a small opera house with fantastic murals? There's only one that I know of, and it's this one. We've been fascinated by this place for years since first hearing of it on 60 Minutes, and finally made it here. We stayed the night,... More

This place is full of dreams and history and personal commitments from those who established the opera house and embellished the whole place with its own immense personality. the hotel itself is set rather desolately (which only adds to its appeal) in the desert near Death Valley. It's an amazing old building and the additions from Marta Beckett who has... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby, but visited this place for a tour. It was fun to learn about the history of the property, and view the opera house and all of the paintings inside. Afterwards we talked to the housekeeper who was very energetic and had some ghost experiences to tell us about, since there are said to... More

Take this place for what it is - the remnants of tremendous performing art in the middle of nowhere. Marta Beckett bought the run down mess in the 60's and revamped it into an excellent opera house w/ her own will and labor. The rooms are tiny, the kitchen no longer functions, we slept like babies (happy ones) and would... More

If you are interested in body comfort, this is not for you. But if you have a knack for surrealism, for angels hand-painted in you r bedroom walls to guard your sleep and time travel this may just be the place. This could very well be a movie set for a David Lynch film or the setting for a Steven... More
