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.

This place fits right in with the rest of the Death Valley area, a dusty shell of former glories. I found the staff to knowledgeable and polite, the rooms clean, and if the cafe is not open food can be found less then 10 minutes away at a small casino. If you don't stay here you should at least stop... More

With all the respect to historical past of Amargosa Opera House, I must admit that motel is in a very poor condition and running further down to the hill. It is possible to tolerate the absence of TV, refrigerator, and microwave in the room. It is even possible to tolerate pre-second World War rusty and squeaking plumbing, shower and note... More

Extraordinary...the stories behind the paintings and murals are exceptionally vibrant and interesting...Alaina, our host and tour guide, shared memorable moments of fascinating intrigue expertly weaving the past and present into her presentation. Marta's life and incredible works of art gave one pause, a clever and interesting presentation of European arrival in the west and its subsequent upheaval of Native Americans,... More

What a strange little place out in the middle of nowhere. Dusty, musty, run down opera house and museum with loads of desert charm. We had a tour of the rooms, the wall paintings were fantastic. If you are adventurous and love out of the way places, with some amazing history. This is the place for you.

First of all, let me say I am all for historic character and charm. I am always looking for places to stay that reflect the nature of the area, unique, etc, so this place should have been right up my alley. However, when it comes down to it I do have some basic standards for hygiene and cleanliness!!! This place... More

Well,what to say about this place! had I stayed in this hotel in say India or Nepal I wouldn't have been surprised at the overall shoddy upkeep. The hotel is themed as an opera house which on first appearances seemed quite quaint and novel. But once through the front door I was hit with the foulest smell of what I... More

My experience at the Hotel is about 20 yrs old, fair warning. I first saw it in the '91 movie Delusion and was intrigued by the lonely location in the desert. (I love the deserts of the Southwest.) I finally made it to Death Valley Junction in the early/mid '90's on a road trip from Hwy 395 to Vegas, and... More

This property is well kept and very pretty. The size is overwhelming. There is a restaurant onsite so no need to go anywhere. Everything you need is right there. This is a beautifully well kept piece of history that is not be missed. If you go there expecting 5 star, you're gonna be very disappointed. It's clean, it's comfortable and... More
